Dita Von Teese:
Madame X Demi Bra
Sexy lace underwire bra with partial foam-lined cups
U.K. cup sizes. See size chart for U.S. conversion.
Seamed cups with sexy cut-out detail and side boning
Fully stretch back adjustable straps
3 column, 2 row hook and eye back closure
I normally am a 30 DD, I ordered this specific style in 32 D, since it is the sister size.
My biggest problem whenever I purchase a bra in the sister size is that it fits too loosely, so when shopping Dita's collection I made sure to order bras in which the straps can be fully tightened. So with that in mind, I went ahead and gave the Madame X bra a chance. After trying the bra on & figuring out how far to hook it, I was able to get a nicely snug fit from the band. (Remember that when it comes to bras, support *should* come from the band, so for those of you in the 28" to 30" range I suggest you start from there.) The straps are very adjustable so I was able to tighten them to my liking, giving me a perfect & comfortable fit.
I was worried the bra would not be supportive enough, I assumed it would only be something you wear for the purposes of seduction BUT the seamed part of the cups is actually quite sturdy. The best part is that the lace section of the cup is lined with a sheer nude fabric, so if you have your nipples pierced (like I do) you do not need to worry about any painful fabric snags. The overall feel of the bra is soft, and even though all the straps on the bra give it a harder & edgier look, the Madame X bra feels like a dream.
I must say that I am surprised by how well it fit & how flexible the Madame X bra is! I am aware that Dita received some backlash for not catering to women who have small band sizes & larger cup sizes, but the Madame X bras are an ideal solution to that problem.
I would highly recommend this bra & I do plan on purchasing it in other colors.
Hope this review helped!
