Parfait by Affinitas Kelly Underwire Bra
Really, really good bra
I really like this bra - very comforatable fit.

Runs small, strange shape
This bra, as with other bras from Parfait, runs quite small in the band. I did manage to get the bra hooked on the loosest hook, but it was pretty difficult. The cups are...odd. They may work better for someone with fairly firm breast tissue, but these are not for a woman with very soft breast tissue. The side-support slings pushed and cut into the side of the breast, leaving an obvious line where the sling ended. The fabric of the cups was too stretchy to provide any real shape, so my breasts looked very odd and lumpy in this bra. I tried it in two colors, and returned both.

I love this bra, actually I love the Parfait by Affinitas brand. I look for English sizing when I purchase a bra as I am unable to find anything in Canada or the USA that fits me properly. I wear a 36E and this bra fits perfectly. The wire does not stand out between my breasts but snugs in between as it should. At this point in time I believe I have 5 in various colours and see no reason to purchase a different style. My only concern was my last black one the wire came through the casing at the top in the front. I only wash my bras by hand because I know that washing in a machine does cause this to happen, needless to say was disappointed that this happened. I am 60 and it is really nice to know that by bust is in the right place and does not sag at all. Thank you for carrying this product.

Fits very small
Pretty bra - but band and cups run so small I couldn't do an evaluation on any other aspect. Recommend a band and cup size 1 larger than you would normally order. Can't wear it now, but will keep the bra in case I lose weight!

Fit doesn't last the day - Droopy!
I'm quite disappointed in this bra. Being a difficult size (30DD), I can't buy off the rack. I thought this bra was well matched to my style and preferences and when I tried it on it fit very nicely. I liked the coverage and support - and (as I'm pregnant and my breasts are growing) I was glad that the fabric had some stretch to it.
The first time I wore it though I noticed through my blouse, that the coverage across the top of the breast was slipping down. This left me with that ugly double-chin look on each breast - visible through my top. Repositioning myself in the bra offered
good coverage again, but only for a short period of time before the slipping returns.
I would absolutely return this bra, but once it's been worn that's not an option. So I have an expensive yet lousy bra that I can wear around the house.
