Parisa Fe Body Veil Racerback Underwire Push-Up Bra
Cups are TINY
I saw this and wondered why on earth make a pushup bra in my size but decided to give it a try since my front closure options are limited. This bra is definitely a pushup, with ton of padding in the bottom outer part of the cups. This would be find if the top inner parts of the cups were un-padded. or IF THEY ACTUALLY EXISTED! This bra is smaller than most demi cups I've seen - there is only about 1/3 of a cup, and what's there is padded. Most pushups have an unpadded part to mold to your body and allow the bra to stay in place. This one had the effect of just sticking a back band with tennis balls taped under your girls!

Too Much PADDING!
Take out 90% of the padding, and this product would be great!

This could be a great Bra
I have been searching and searching for a racer-back under-wire bra that was not a sports bra in my size for years (34g). When I came across this I was hopeful, I did read all the reviews and still ordered it. Now this bra has a ton of potential!!!! The problem is that the bra has padding that a Drag Queen would love, not a big chested woman like my self would want. I thought and thought to myself what to do? The padding was to a point where when I wore the bra it was giving me double breast and nipple came out of it. The construction of the bra was perfect it was just that padding. So I improvised. With a ton of patience, I decided to remove the padding. I ended up taking fabric scissors to the foam and removing it. Now the bra fits perfect!!! It is however see thru, but I'll take that. The material that is on the outside of the bra is a nice heavy fabric even though it is see thru. I actually have a Freya one with that material and I love it. Now that the foam is removed the bra itself fits amazing and I can now wear all my racer back tops.
I would recommend to the company to make this bra again without the foam padding and the fabric to come up a tad higher on the cleavage part. All in all if you are that desperate to have a racer back under wire bra for summer and have the patience to deconstruct this bra then yes get it.

Oh no... more armpit boobs!
(Since I had identical issues with the other bra I purchased, returned, and reviewed- I'm going to pretty much copy and paste the review.)
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 Florence plunge 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.

For a front snap bra it fits nicely. Runs slightly smaller than my other 38 bras which causes it to unsnap when I reach for something. I would go a size larger but may affect the cup size. I wear a 38C and the cup is fine. Has comfy pasdding and does create cleavage.
