Great forward projection!
on May 18, 2012
I absolutely love the look this bra creates. I do not find it to cause "cone boobs", although I can see how if someone perhaps was trying to squeeze into a too small cup it might have that effect. My natural cleavage is close, and the bra did not space me too far apart.
That said, this is not a cleavage creating low cut top type of bra. It does not push up, and is not like a balcony or half cup style bra that creates a more rounded shape. This bra brings everything straight forward. If you're looking for projection, this is great bra. It has a two part cup, with the seam going horizontally across the middle. I personally do not care for molded seamless cup bras.
The bra is so feminine for a full cup style bra. I'd purchased it for everyday type wear and think its lovely for that. It might not appear super sexy, but under clothing it certainly creates a super sexy profile. The matching panties are very feminine as well.
I have this bra in black, heather pink, and also in cappuccino, and feel that the cappuccino is the prettiest. I rarely reach for the black, I wish it was all black. The black is black lace over a sheer white netting, while the cappuccino has a nude/taupe type net under the lace that makes the bra appear more sheer, as the skin looks to be more exposed, even though its really not. The pink is a nice pastel pink (more about color choices below).
This bra will show at the top if you have a low cut or sort of low but wide neckline.
One thing I've noticed is that these bras tend to feel tight in the band. You might want to consider ordering "sister sizing" (go up a back size and down a cup size) if you're undecided. For reference I have a 31.5" rib cage, and most often wear a 34G (US and UK sizing). The cups for this bra fit me perfectly, the band was snugger than I like. I chose to stay with my back size and may use a bra band extender until the bras stretch out some.
This style has been offered in various colors over the years, so, if you're purchasing from a reseller, its a good idea to make sure you're getting the color you think you are, especially if you're matching panties to it. I know it was once offered in a heather pink, which is a pale pink, and also carnation pink which is brighter and darker. Currently Amazon is showing it in cappuccino and toast, and these are completely different shades from each other. I think the most current color offering by Wacoal is ivory.
