About the bra:
While this bra in pictures looks like it’s a balconette style, it’s called (and fits like) a full coverage bra.
It is made from mesh, the main parts of the bra are black, with the trimmings, straps and closure being a bright pink. The upper part is one single fabric, while the bottom is double fabric. This bra is sheer.
The bow in the center is also pink
There are also bows where the cups meet the straps.
The straps are pink and relatively thin.
Okay, so, I tried this bra on twice, just for hell of it, and it fit differently both times. The fittings were only a few dead apart, and I didn’t gain any weight, so I don’t know why there’s a difference. I will post comparison pictures, so you can see the difference.
The biggest difference I can see in these pics above is that in the first picture, my left breast (which is on the right side of the pictures) looks higher/taller than it does in the second picture. It’s like you can see a clear definition of where my breast starts. Difference #2 is that you can see some wrinkling at the top of the cup on my right breast in the first picture (which is on the left in the pictures). The third difference is that there seems to be more cleavage in the second picture.
Oddly enough, there is some wrinkling on the cup in the second picture, that isn’t there in the first picture, and also wasn’t present in the set of pictures above. And you can kind of see that in both pictures it looks like the top of the cup is cutting into my tissue. It’s not quite quadboob.
Initially when I tried the bra on, the gore wasn’t racking, but the second time it was.
This is a closeup of the gore from the second time trying the bra on. There’s some slightly wrinkling between the cups.
A close up of the tightness at the top. I don’t think this would be good for someone that’s FOT, because of the pink elastic at the top. However it does stretch.
Another thing I’ve noticed with this bra is that there seems to be some sort of odd ‘dent’ or indentation on the side right where the cup meets the wire meets the band. It doesn’t hurt, it just looks weird.
The side profile looks okay. I’m still getting used to not wearing molded bras, so the side profiles don’t look rounded enough to me, yet.
A few few things I want to point out:
This Claudette bra is called ‘Dessous Sucre’, Claudette makes other bras that are just called ‘Dessous’. I don’t know if there is a difference in the fit, but the description on the Love Claudette website is the same. I do have my eye on one of the ones without sucre in the title, I’m not sure if I’m going to but it yet. I think that possibly the non Sucre Dessous bras are not full coverage, they’re a little less than full,
The mesh on this bra is very scratchy. When I tried it on, I more or less felt like this was a ‘sexy time’ bra, and not an everyday bra. (If you do indeed wear bras during sex)
Another thing I noticed was that it was so thin that the seams show through on tops/dresses that aren’t very thick. When I got cold I was ever so able to slightly detect where my nipple was, because as you can see from the above pics, my nipples are in the sheer area.
