Parisa Fe Florence Plunge Underwire Push-Up Bra
Bra runs small but otherwise great
I ended up ordering this bra in a larger cup size because it was a bit small. Otherwise no problems! It's very sexy. It's hard to find a push-up bra in larger sizes and this one gives you a little bit of a lift.

Oh no. Oh NO NO NO. And I was so excited about this bra! I bought this and another Parisa Fe bra at the same time. The other being the body veil racerback underwire by PF. My box was delivered and I squealed with delight as I opened it up. But all that excitement dissipated quickly as soon as I put the bra on. Lift, maybe.. separate.. OH MY. My breasts were pulled all the way back into my armpits. It's like whoever designed this bra must have taken the shape from a woman laying flat on her back. It almost felt like someone had come up behind me, reached around under my arms, grabbed my breasts, and pulled them back in such a way as to attempt tucking them in under my arm. I looked down and where had the girls gone?!? I was so upset.
On top of the horrible fit and shape of the bra, I had to take a loss for returning it! Yeah, they send you a return shipping label in case you're not satisfied- but they deduct the cost of that return label if you use it. So, either pay out of your own pocket to return or you'll pay for that return label. How lovely. And I'm usually so smitten with BN. I promise, I will never purchase another Parisa Fe garment EVER again.

Frustrating sizing issues, but give it a try.
I first got this bra in a my usual size of 34G (it varies by brand & style). I loved it. It seemed well made & looked nice. I *love* the 4 hooks in the back - I'm not a fan of the 2-hooks one usually finds (less support, more bulging backfat). This is one of the only bras I've ever tried that actually managed to *push up* my very heavy bosom. It also gave a nice shape & nice cleavage (pretty much the only bra to manage that too). Sadly, the cups were a tad small, so there was just too much bubbling over. So I returned it and tried 34G. UGH! It made my breasts into wide, flat rectangles with a lot of breast squished towards my armpits (meaning hardly any cleavage and not as much lift in addition to the hideous rectangle shape). Thought I'd try a 32H to see if the shape would work better, but they don't seem to make it. I'm bummed. I may re-order the 34G and just deal with muffin top breasts because it came *so* close to being my perfect bra.
