Brand: Valea (a Bulgarian brand)
I bought this from eBay some weeks/months back. I actually checked my eBay emails and I had a $15 off $50 coupon. I literally searched for ’65E bra’ and came across this:
Yes, I was swayed by the way the bra looked on the model.
So I incorrectly stated that the Donna bra I recently reviewed was the only Polish unlined bra that fit me. Well this one kind of fits, I just don’t intend to wear it.
The cups are an unlined halfcup style, with a thin band of elastic at the top. There is a side sling (I can’t tell you if this has an effect on the fit of the cups or not). There is a good amoun of projection at the wire. The cup is made up of 1 layer of sheer mesh, with an ornate design at the top that oddly enough did not show through my thin top.
The straps are very thin and stretchy- very reminiscent of VS straps. At .4 inches (1.02 cm) it makes me very happy, as I don’t really care for thick straps. The straps are also removable. So theoretically this bra can be worn as a strapless. Without the straps, the top does fall down a little bit
One of the reasons why I don’t want to wear this bra is because the gore pushes into my skin as soon as I put it on. I will try it on with an extender to see if that alleviates some of the pressure. The gore measures 2.5 inches (6.35 cm), and .75 inches (1.91 cm) across the top.
The band stretches to 28.5 inches (72.39 cm), which is my snug measurement but it feels a little tighter than what I’d like.
I really wish I could get the look I’m going for in unlined halfcups — that is, some sort of ‘push-up’ style cleavage, much like the woman in the pic that made me buy this bra.
