Stella McCartney Underwire Plunge Bra
Beautiful Bra - Runs a Little Small
This is a beautiful bra, but you really need to try it on to get the sizing right. I generally run 32DDD or 34DD (depending on style and brand) and based on the reviews I tried on a 34DD at the store. I found even 34DD to be a bit on the tight side, so I went with a 36D. After having worn it for a few weeks on and off, I think I probably could have gone with the 34DD since the 36D has stretched a bit. As far as the design on this goes, it really is great bra especially for larger busted women who don't necessarily want a full coverage bra. It gives good support and has a pretty deep plunge. The plunge was a huge plus for me because that meant that the end of the underwires didn't hit me in a spot where I have a scar from surgery. Another nice thing about the design is that the band is extremely flat making it very comfortable. Overall, a great everyday bra, just make sure to try it on to get the sizing right.
I read about this bra in the style guide of the Globe & Mail, and I had to have it - thankfully Nordstrom carries it in the full size range. The price is excellent for such a gorgeous, well-made bra. I always wear 36B and this one fit (comparable to my Calvin Klein bras in 36B), but unfortunately, the underwires didn't fit my bust line very well, causing ripples in the band at the sides. This is a problem I have with most bras on the market, so I don't think this is a fault of the bra. I am just sorry it didn't fit my figure type otherwise I would have kept it for sure - it's a fabulous bra!
I'm a 32 D and couldn't even clasp it in back. Following the advice of others, I ordered the 34 C, and it fits perfectly. Unlike other bras that flatten or hide the curves, this one creates pretty cleavage.
Wish it worked
I have a hate-hate relationship with bras. When I read about this one thought it was the answer. I am a 32c in every bra but I fell out of this one. However, it was really pretty and hopefully will work well with most "normal bra wearing" women.
