I wanted to love this bra and the no-wire strapless I bought, but after trying them both on and wearing them I just can't bring myself to justify the purchase.
The good news is that the sizing is pretty spot on for how they tell you to measure yourself. I had my husband help me out and I did not wear a bra while doing it. I measured a 34D and that is what I ordered, this is also my usual size. The bras came quickly and when I got them I tried them on and the fabric is soft and there is no underwire, which was nice. Instead of an underwire the fabric is thicker sad sewn in a way to help keep everything in place. This is a very smart move. It mimics an underwire without it digging in like one.
The not so great news is that I just didn't like the bra. It was a little too padded and when I put a shirt on it looked like I was a 14 year old girl trying to look like Pamela Anderson. It smashed my breasts against my chest (flat) and then together and up, which left a void on the bottom and sides of my the bra where my breasts should have been (I hope you understand what I'm saying). It basically smashed my breasts like a corset and made them bulge up top for cleavage. It was just too much for me. I know it's a push-up, but it just looked fake. You can also see the seem in the bra cup through most clothing and the two tone cup showed through a decent amount of my shirts. My husband said it looked like I was wearing 2 bras (one on top of the other).
Unfortunately I was so excited to get the bras that I ripped the tags off, like a dummy, and now I can't return them. I may give the push-up to a friend with smaller breasts and see if she likes it, but I doubt I'll be wearing it. All in all, I'm just a little disappointed, since these bras are raved about and marketed so much. I may try a bralette or the t-shirt bra, but honestly I just want the t-shirt bra with no wire.
My suggestions would be (in general) to do away with the two tone cups with the seem (they're just not practical for most women), and to make a t-shirt bra with no wire. I'm a simple girl and I just want to find a decent bra that supports me that doesn't have an underwire and I thought this one would do it, but it didn't. And lastly, allow for exchanges when the tags have been removed, but the bra has not been worn. You could even charge a restocking fee. If I were shopping in store, I would not have purchased this bra.
