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.
The only thing keeping these from getting a five-star review is that the cups are juussstttt a bit too large. I measured (twice!), and ordered the 42C. I had ordered a 38C of a different bra, and they were too small, so I figured that this one would be perfect, seeing as it was 4" larger. Not so!! Even with the added inches, I had to use one of my bra extenders (these are great if you got a bra that is just that much too small--you just hook one on to your bra, and it extends the band, making it perfect for you to wear! Genius, right?!? These have saved me from returning a few bras that were too small! They sell here on Amazon.). Having said that, I have to say that this is probably one of the most beautiful and SOFTEST bras I've ever owned!! The lace (indeed, the entire bra!) is silky soft, and the design is absolutely beautiful. If I were getting married, I would wear this white one under my gown, that's how beautiful it is!!
The cups, as I said, were JUUSST a tiny bit too large, and the underwire came up under my armpit, but it really wasn't too uncomfortable. The straps are wide and sit perfectly on my shoulders with no slip (hallelujah!!). The center of the bra sits completely flat against the breastbone as it's supposed to, and it has a very pretty detail--tiny little rhinestones (three) hanging down from a satin bow. It's such a flattering little detail, and very lovely. This bra is SOOOO comfortable!!!!; I almost forgot I was wearing it at times!! The material, as I said, is silky, and moves with you. The band is wide enough that you don't get any "rollover" at your back or sides (almost a miracle in a bra this fluid!). The support is very good, I think. You do have to adjust the straps, but after that, I found the support very good. The bra is unlined, which didn't bother me. There IS a seam that runs across the cups at the front (see pic), and perhaps if you had a tight T-shirt on, it might show, but for the most part, this wasn't a problem. I love this bra so much I'm ordering 3 or 4 more (or perhaps one in all of the colors....and the colors are BEAUTIFUL!!). They are perfect everyday bras, extremely comfortable, and absolutely gorgeous to look at. I would, however, advise hand washing for these, as you wouldn't want to ruin the lace or small accents. I would recommend this bra to anyone who wants a bra for every day, but one that's special enough for an "occasion". Ok---I have to go and order mine before they run out!! Get this bra!! : )
They feel nice and look great, the cut of the cups give a great shape and the sheer fabric just looks fantastic. I have almost the whole collection of colors!
The problem is that it's not great for "all day, every day" wear. The fabric is a little too stretchy for the wings and the banding around the ribs starts to get uncomfortable with extended wear while at work. I start to get some uncomfortable rubbing as the material relaxes during my work day, and this affects the underwire where it doesn't stay put and rubs too much to my liking. It's not the cups- it's an issue with around my ribs and back. I do a lot of moving, bending and twisting- this is not a good bra for that.
It looks prettier in person. The fit is perfect, and it's very comfortable for the first few hours, but eventually it gets a bit scratchy and the ends of the wires start to dig into my skin. Support isn't amazing, but I intended to use this as an at home/sleep bra, so that's not a problem. Oddly unbreathable for being such a see-through bra.
The wires digging in is the worst part of it. If not for that, I might have bought more. As it is, I'm keeping it, I just won't try to wear it for any longer than it takes me to do my laundry.
ETA: It got less scratchy after a couple of washes.
