I am sure you can see exactly why I ordered it - what a gorgeous polka dot bra! In reality, the colour of the cups is a slightly more taupe shade, which was a tiny bit disappointing as the brown looks so rich and extravagant here in the stock photo. However, the prettiness of the bra is not lost at all and it still looks very special indeed.
My own camera did not accurately represent the colour of the bra either, mind you!
The padded cups are beige in colour and are covered by polka dot taupe mesh. The straps are fully adjustable and are embellished on the front half with some very delicate embroidery. The band is very stretchy and connects with three rows of three hooks.
When I went for the 38/85H, it was really out of curiosity/desperation - I knew the band would be too big for me but I wanted so much to see this lovely bra in the flesh so I crossed my fingers that it would be a good fit.
As you can see from my photos, unfortunately it wasn't. The cups were too small and my breasts spilled out from the sides. The band was indeed too big and I think I could have got away with a 32/70 instead.
Having said that, I was EXTREMELY impressed with the shape this bra gave me, particularly how it held my breasts completely in front - it was a lovely feeling to be able to swing my arms back and forth without banging into boobs! I thought my Ewa Michalaks did a good job at this until now but this bra really worked wonders.
It's interesting that Comexim have made a bra as shapely and uplifting as this by using only a three-section cup. My Ewas are all four section (one on the top half of the cup and three on the bottom) so I had assumed this is what's required for larger cups. Apparently not!
I highly recommend this bra to anyone who's interested. The sizing is an issue though so do make sure you learn by my mistake and take your time to establish the most suitable back band and cup size for you.
