I had seen this bra around and was curious about it, since it looked like it might fit similarly to the Parfait Casey. I couldn’t find a clear picture of the band, though, and was worried that it might also fit like the Full-filled “mystery” bra that I tried recently.
When I found a it in a nude 30GG on eBay, I decided that it was worth trying. It took forever to ship, since I bought it from England, so I was very excited when it finally arrived.
Unfortunately, it fit pretty much exactly like the “mystery” bra. Compare Isabella with the “mystery” bra…
Though the underwires do not technically dip below the band, the band itself is shaped so that the cups are not in a straight line with the band. Here’s a clarifying image:
Fit: New, the band fits about a size small, but the material seems like it would stretch out quickly. The cups are the right volume, but the shape means that there is empty space in the bottom and a good amount of quad-boob at the top. Sigh.
Comfort: The bra seems fairly well made and seemed comfortable when I tried it on. It seems like it might be less breathable than some other bras.
Looks: The fabric is kind of apricot-coloured. The bra is simple and pretty.
Shape: Because the configuration of the underwire/band isn’t right for me, the cups sit below my breasts and also pull my breasts down and out- not a pretty sight. The cups are pretty rounded, though, and look like they would give a great shape on someone with less high-set breasts.
Overall: I like it and wish it worked for me. If I could just move the underwires, it would be great! If low underwires are fine for you, it will probably work out well.
