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.
This is both too large and too small, but it’s a gamble due to weird sizing (can’t tell it it’s UK Or US) and also needing to order a “sister size” because my bizarro 32G (UK) doesn’t exist in this brand, I don’t think. Also despite having a tiny rib cage I have a bit of a belly so I went with the 36FF, exchanged for 36F, cups still lightly too large (never had the issue in my life) so I reordered in 36DD which I didn’t think would fit, but it does! BUT the underwire and support boning are crooked and off center so I am returning and reordering. No joke I have $$$ in pending orders and returns.
I have worn this bra in the past, when I was slimmer, and I have found that even though I have a short torso (I am under 5’ tall) I need the longline support so the bra doesn’t slide around. That’s what’s lead me back to this bra, because while it may not be attractive it serves it’s purpose.
While this bra fits, and is “sort of” comfortable, it gives me boobs a sort of sideways conical “Madonna in the 80s” shape. No cleavage whatsoever. Also there is no molding/padding so nips will show, there is no clear silicon gel along the edges to hold it up, and the elastic bottom probably hits normal to taller women halfway through the abdomen and creates unflattering bulges. I am very short so it reaches pretty far on my torso but I will still use shapewear for belly bulge - it’s like a reverse muffin top LOL
I am struggling to find a bra to wear under my strapless wedding dress and even though this isn’t perfect I think it’s probably the best thing I can find for my size/sister size.
Bought this for underneath my wedding gown! I bought a different brand before this one and it was horrible! too small cups, too large band!
This band size is perfect on the loose setting! and if I continue any workout regimen before the wedding, the tighter setting might work as well!
The boning on this is absolutely perfect! The ladies are standing at attention, tall and beautiful and vintage looking. Very demure bridal pin-up feeling. YES it does give you torpedo boob. SO WHAT? your chest looks beautiful and support is fantastic. I am naturally a 36DDD, and always wear demi cup bras, so I assume my cup size is actually larger, and ordered the 36F after the last brand was way too small! the cups fit perfect.
The back comes slightly lower than expected which is nice because you don't have to worry about it showing with your dress and the comfort band at the bottom is soft and gives good support with a small looking waist. The detachable straps are horrible looking, and since my dress is strapless I took them off! there is a small tab where the strap was in front on both sides, but as long as this works under my dress, I will just cut the tabs off!
The neckline is a little higher than I thought, which is the only reason I am a little hesitant about trying it with my dress. I have a sweetheart neckline dress and hope they line up. Also the lace is gorgeous, and I know my dress has many layers and will hide it, but if you have a thinner dress don't get this or the lace will show through the material!
Fingers crossed it works with my dress next month for my first fitting!
Do not use your bra as an indicator for size! I ordered 4 sizes but either the bust fit and the waist was too small or the bust was too big but the waist fit. It's exhausting and I just gave up. Spare yourself and purchase some Spanx or Bare Necessities.
This was just slightly smaller than I expected and required a concerted effort to get into by myself. I did not care for the cone-like shape it gave to my boobs and the fabric felt harsh against my sensitive skin, so I returned this.
I ordered this longline with a few others to try out for my January 2013 upcoming wedding. This one I loved the moment I pulled it out of the package. I tried it on and it was comfortable and a great fit. The only issue was, the top of the cups come very high! My dress is rather modest and does not show any cleavage or anything of that sort what so ever and this bra still showed well above the top of the dress! Very disappointing because this bra seemed to be so well made! If you are wearing a very high cut garment, this bra is a winner!
