Hi there ya’ll! I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you for a moment but I had soooo much to do. My sister just graduated today which was very emotional to me even though I’m not that person who usually cries at everything. Btw, she was the student of the year 2013 which made me extra proud! Anyways, here I am with a new bra review and I actually decided to make a small change on my review posts which is dividing these posts to three different “sections”: fit, comfort and design. I think this will make the reviews more constructed and clear to all my readers. This time I reviewed the Fauve’s stunning Bronte longline which is one of the most beautiful bras I’ve ever seen.
Design: As you can see the Bronte has a very nice orange colour to it which is super-summery and fun. It’s also quite luxorious and has a deep shade which makes this longline vibrant yet grown up. I payed a LOT for this beauty ( about 90 e and that was after I got 15% off!) but the looks ALMOST make up for it. Just almost, cause u know, appearance is not something we splurge a 100 e for. The detailing is amazing, very mature but in a good way. I also love the shade of the lace because it’s not all white or creamy but really a shade of pale grey(ish). The materials are also really special and make this bra look as expensive as it is. It has vertical seaming which I love look-wise, it kinda makes the bra look sexy and classy at the same time. However, one minus would be that this is not much of a longline because the band does not get that low on my torso. But that could only be me, someone with a shorter torso might find it just fine for them.
Fit: Fit-wise this bra is not the best for me. It runs quite true to size on the band but I would definitely recommend to size up in the cups. I’m wearing a 30FF which is a rather good size for me BUT I could have probably gone up to 30G. As you can see the lace on the cups makes them look like the other one is gaping but it really isn’t, it’s just the lace standing in a weird position. The other cup is actually giving me almost double-boob. Shape-wise I would compare it to Curvy Kate “Tease Me” since it’s quite shallow in the cup and has the same “cakes on a plate” effect on cleavage.
This bra has reeeeeally wide underwires. The wires go actually way back in my armpit which was super weird cause I have never EVER seen such wide wires. However, they do not come up that high but still, the wires are a big issue for me or I think for anyone but I’ll cover up that issue on the comfort section. I think something has gone badly wrong when designing this bra and I think this could be better for someone with a bigger band size. It almost seems like they only sister-sized this bra down to the small bands and left the wires as wide as with the bigger bands. CAN’T UNDERSTAND.
Comfort: I must admit it: this is NOT an everyday bra! Don’t even think about wearing it for longer periods than three hours. It’s absolutely pure pain. I had this bra on for work (6 h) and I constantly tried to bend the wires away from my body to feel comfortable. The wires are so wide they poke on my ribs. When I finally got to take the bra off it had left me serious red marks like two inches away from my breast tissue which is not good! The bones that were on the sides of the bra were also painful and poked me constantly, especially while bending myself and moving around our store.
Other thing that really bugged me big time was the lace on the lower part of the longline. It was itchy as hell and kept rolling up because of my ribs that are super outward projected (sounds weird I know, but just take a look at the video, that underbust “fat” is actually mostly my ribs sticking out). This was so uncomfortable I doomed this bra to go to hell until something really special happens or I need a dose of sexiness.
Seriously, I just hope Bronte needs a break-out period but I doubt it. This bra was just not for me and It’s killing me and my wallet.
Lisäystä sen verran videoon, että Bronte oli päivän päätteeksi melkoisen epämukava malli ainakin minun päälläni. Kuuden tunnin työpäivän jälkeen halusin repiä rintsikat päältäni ja niiden alta paljastuikin mukavat jäljet, jotka olivat MONTA SENTTIÄ liian kaukana rintakudoksestani. Tämän mallin ongelma on siis todellakin nuo liian leveät kaarituet, jotka painavat ja pistelevät inhottavasti ainakin tässä koossa. Voi tietysti olla, että isommissa ympärysmitoissa ongelma voi helpottua mutta sitähän en voi tietää kun näyttöä asiasta ei ainakaan vielä liiemmin ole. Jos on mahdollisuus käydä jossain kokeilemassa, niin raportoikaa ihmeessä minulle mikä on asian laita!
