Out of five different bras I tried on from here this is the only one that fit perfectly (size 32FF). The wire on the side goes high enough to fit my side boob in the cup. From what I understand this causes it to dig in to the armpit of women with shorter torsos. I have a long torso and love having the wire go higher on the sides.
The nude color is an appealing warm nude compared to the greyish nude for Parfait by Affinitas.
Not sure how much the embroidery design will show through blouses.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wear 32F (UK) but that size in this bra was way too small. I ordered it as a plain nude everyday type bra but it is more plain than I bargained for.
Other things to note:
--It has slight padding to it which is good if you want to conceal nipples through your clothes
--There are only 2 rows of hooks
Yes, I recommend this product.

I only used this product a few times before I couldn't stand the smell any longer. It has a very strong perfume to it. Forever New might sell a version that is scent free but this was the only one the bra boutique carried. I didn't notice it to wash any better than my other gentle detergent. I eventually gave it away.
No, I do not recommend this product.

band size

For this brand is the band size the same as the ribcage measurement?
Yes. The band is always your ribcage measurement under your bust. If you measure an odd number, try both sizes around it (but adjust the cup accordingly). My measurement is 31.5 and I fit consistently in a 32. I'm also a 32G in US brands, but lately fitting best in a 32FF in UK brands like Panache. It's the cup sizing that gets all wonky between manufacturers.
