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.
My bra arrived yesterday, a day ahead of the expected date, that's a plus. I was so excited to actually try on a bra that should have been my size. I'm too cheap to go to a bra boutique and pay their price for a triple D and it's not like you can find them on the rack in most stores. I've been stuffing myself in DD's and dealing with the spillage.
This bra is incredibly sexy and I would love to be able to keep it but I found the band to be snug. I ordered a 36 since I was increasing the cup and most likely needed the 38. I really liked the way by breasts fit completely in the cups and, I liked not having anything but lace, no padding. Unfortunately, the 3-5 minutes I had it on trying to decide if I should keep it or not, were not comfortable. I'd look in the mirror and love the way it looked, but couldn't convince myself that I'd ever wear it, it was just too uncomfortable.
The straps are wider-set and I found them uncomfortably digging in my armpits. I'm 5'5", 155 so maybe that's a fat issue on my part but all of my other bras scoop lower on the sides than this did. Another plus for this bra is that it did lay completely flat against my sternum, (the sign of a good fit), most of what I've worn won't. Also, I tried it on with a relatively thin t-shirt and it was a smooth look. It didn't scream, "hey look at my lace bra!", that was a major plus. My final issue, and it wasn't the deal breaker, is that my breasts seemed a mile away from each other. I could probably have fit 3 fingers between them. Like I said that wasn't a deal breaker, just not the style of my other bras. I thought I'd add that just in case you were looking for side support.
I seriously wanted this to work but will have to send it back.
I usually wait a while to write a review because it gives me time to use a product and see how it performs for a few weeks or months. When you first receive an item it's shiny and new and you love it, after some use you get to see how it works and holds up. I purchased 4 of these bras in order to rotate through them so they lasted a little longer than I suspect they would have, but the lace tore along the cups and straps rendering the bras useless. I threw them out and broke down and bought the more expensive bras from VS.
Yeah you get what you pay for here, the material is very cheap and itchy. The fit is fine, there's a bit of stretch to the cups but they're firm and give support, I looked really good. But it's not comfortable to wear at all, it's almost painful, even though the straps aren't digging into my shoulders, the cheap material is stiff and i can just feel it all the time. But ugh it look so good on me though, so I'm going to try to make it work and wash it to see if the stiffness goes away or something. Won't be buying it again
I was excited to find a bra that was my size for this price and had pretty good reviews. I'm however not thrilled with this bra. It's pretty but the shoulders don't have much stretch to them. I have a hard time finding 36DDD in many stores without spending $$$. This bra feels like it's going to chafe in many places (shoulders and under arms mainly) and I've only been wearing it for a couple hours. Maybe a size up would fix it?? But I think if it was a different material it wouldn't be as big an issue. But there lace is quite scratchy.
Does not stretch much so it left big gouges in my skin after a normal day of wear. I would order a band size up from what you normally wear. Not easy to put on since it's lace the back sides it's easy to put your thumb nail through the lace so I'm not sure how long this will last... I wouldn't order again.
First of all, prior to purchasing this bra, I followed the instructions to find my TRUE size. Then I ordered the bra. Wow! The most comfy bra ever!! It stays in place and keeps all of me in place, but I can't even feel it. I toss and turn when I'm trying to sleep, and nothing pops out. If the strap shows, it's lace so it looks like a cute cami. I was skeptical about whether or not lace would be comfortable but this material definitely works if you purchase the right size. I bought 3 more. So far.
I was really hoping to fall in love because of all the other reviews.. but when I received the bra, the band size was not at all a 36. My Victoria's Secret bra is a 34DDD, but I've had it for years so the band has stretched out.. which is why I went for the 36DDD in this bra. Nope. Too small, barely got it to clasp, it digs between my breasts, and the straps are too short too, as well as really uncomfortable. Super disappointed in this purchase. :(
The bras are cute and sexy but if you are heavy chested, the skinny straps doesn't offer a lot of support. They are not bad for the price though. I bought 4 different colors. I would purchase again for short term wear (i.e. dinner date or when I want to feel sexy for a few hours)
