To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I originally ordered these bras in January, but due to a successful diet they no longer fit. What I liked most about them, and why I reordered them in another size, is that they have adequate separation between the cups which divides and uplifts your breasts. This is always a problem for heavy breasted women - that dreaded uniboob or the even worse 4 boob syndrome as you spill out of the cupd.
I followed the Elomi measurements and applied the difference between UK and US sizing. Unfortunately, Elomi's measurements were the wrong size. The band fit but the cup size recommended by Elomi was too small. I wear a 40i US. The UK comparable size is 40ff (which I ordered). The cups were not large enough and my breasts spilled over. I reordered the next cup size up (40g) and the bras now fit perfectly.
I find this a comfortable bra, it doesn't fit too tight, and the elastic in the straps is very heavy, so it is comfortable but also gives you good support.
Although this is not a downside for me, it might be for someone else. It is a good support bra, so it's not something you're going to want to lounge around the house in. With that said, this is now my favorite bra.
I just received this bra and after having read the good reviews, I was really hoping it would be a great fit. Unfortunately, this bra did not fit me the way I had expected. I gave it 3 stars because it is "wearable", but the truth be told it simply does not properly shape me. The bra has nice straps that seem to hold when they are adjusted tighter, I liked the color and I did like the depth of the plunging neckline. What I didn't particularly care for was the way the large cups (and they seemed about a size larger than they should be) lightly lift (with a very heavy u-shaped wire) and angle the breasts toward the center of the chest. It makes for a very odd look under blouses or casual shirts. I was really hoping the bra would give excellent lift and natural shaping, but it does not. I wore the bra out today and ended up bringing a concealing cardigan sweater along with me to cover my blouse, as I was a little embarrassed by how odd my breasts looked under the top I was wearing. Additionally, the underwires ride high on this bra and can be somewhat uncomfortable under the arms. I was hoping it would work for me, but sadly it didn't.
