Stella McCartney 'Stella Lace' Underwire Convertible Balconette Bra
Made me re-think my whole Lingerie Drawer
This bra is not only beautiful--it also gives a nice natural shape, and the lace is smoother under fabric than I expected it to be. The color combination is unusual and sophisticated (dark ink/mustard) and makes me feel dressed up even while wearing casual clothes. The reviews I read mentioned the need to size up--I originally ordered a 34B since I typically wear a 32B, but had to return it because it was too big. Since I am right in the middle of the Nordstrom-provided size range for a 32 band size, I'm not sure how to explain why my experience was different from the other purchasers who mentioned that it ran small.
This is the most expensive bra I have ever bought, but because of the fit and functionality, I recently ordered three more Stella McCartney balconette bras.
Pretty but not comfortable
I ordered this bra, without going to the store to try it on, which is always a mistake with a bra. But, it is difficult to find a convertible demi bra and it was one sale. It is really pretty and seems to be well-made, but it was too snug around the ribs--the bra cup was fine. I always wear the same size 32D, but I think that a 34 would have been better. I'd ordered two different brands and the other felt great, so I returned this one. My suggestion would be to order one size up numerically, if the style appeals to you.
Beautiful and comfortable
This was/is my first Stella McCartney bra and I love it. I usually wear a 34D in bras but went up a size thanks to the sales girl who let me know her balconettes usually run small.
Its way to small .
I usually wear a size 34c but this is unbelievable small - like a 32B .
The design is nice , nice material but u should try it before you buy it!
