Now, let me just say that I’ve never worn a soft cup bra, so I’m not sure what expectations I actually had. And, in trying this bra, I had to remind myself what the purpose of a soft cup bra is. While some women can truly get away with wearing a soft cup bra in public, or in place of a bra with wires….I cannot.
Panache also makes the Sophie bra as a wire-free nursing bra. This is just the soft cup. Now on to the pictures:
Also I would have included measurements but apparently I forgot to measure this bra before returning it. I ordered this in a 40J.
Features: Fully adjustable straps, 6 rows of three hooks and eyes, bow on central gore, and 3-part cups for shaping. Pretty lace over hot pink.
Fit Issues and Concerns: The straps were really stretchy, and because this bra has no wires, all of the weight of my breasts was sitting on my shoulders. It was really painful as soon as I put it on. Baring in mind that this bra is not meant to lift and separate, the shape was not that bad from the side, and the lift wasn’t terrible. For a softcup bra. Even though the cups were big enough, my migrated tissue needs the assistance of a firm cup and wires to keep it in the cups. Clearly an issue here.
Realistically, I could see this working for someone with much smaller breasts than me. When I laid down in this bra, it did not keep my boobs in place, so I don’t know what purpose it would serve for sleep. I did like that it had 6 rows of hooks and eyes, because that definitely gives you the ability to change the fit as the bra stretches or as your body changes.
