Some examples of the styles you'll find:
the one on the right is what I'm wearing below:
Standard balconettes & full cups:
The FitI have found this to be true across all the styles: the cups run large and the bands run small. They do not do double letters, so for instance, a G-cup fits me more like a large GG. The cups also tend to run tall in the wired styles, and the wires are closer to Panache height than Curvy Kate. The bands run a full size small.
- Large size range
- Huge array of colors and patterns
- Different seam structures that will suit different shapes
- Lots of wirefree options that give decent support
- 2-packs (when on sale) are a decent value
- Cheap, scratchy materials: lace not especially soft
- Wirefree styles I have tried give a pointy shape
- Wired styles have tall cups/high wires, which negates having different seam shape options, since the cups will still only suit a particular shape
- Finishing quality is not great: elastic edges in band aren't covered well; straps are roughly joined so edges are bulky.
- The price does not reflect the lower quality of the materials. If not on sale, it's not a bargain
When Do I Wear Them?Unfortunately, none of the styles I've tried have been comfy enough to be in rotation. If you suit their cup shape, and don't have sensitive skin, then you will find a huge array of options and colors and much to like in the brand - when it is on sale.
My size in the brand: 40F
