Simone Perele Andora Full Cup Bra
I did not want to return this bra!
...except that the stretch straps were too stretchy, which virtually negated the built in support of the frame of the bra. This would have been the perfect bra, Quality material and construction, comfort, style, support. I like/need straps that are wide, close set and have some give, but with this bra I was actually bouncy. Even with tightening the straps. I tried everything to keep it. It was sooo comfortable. Please fix the straps so there is not so much give.

Lovely, light but average support
The design and fabric quality is fine; you barely know you are wearing this bra. The padding is light so I do not wear this under teeshirts. I also bought the Marlies Dekkers in size 32DD and it is interesting how different the sizing is. I am wearing the Simone Perele on the tightest clasp, as the band is generous, while I am wearing the Dekkers on the first clasp. Also, the Simone Perele cups are much larger and I don't totally fill them (although my one side is slightly smaller than the other!) I was hoping this would be my everyday bra but it appears I will use it selectively. It does feel luxurious but lacks practicality.

This is a beautiful t-shirt bra that truly feels like a second skin; you don't even feel as though you are wearing a bra.
Like so many women, I have been wearing ill fitting bras for years--too big a band and too small a cup size. The reason for this is mainly because of the outdated method of measuring for bras (add 4 or 5 inches to the underbust measurement). I have had two professional bra fittings; both of the fitters told me I wore a 36D. However, after following BN's measuring guide and then using the trouble shooting guide, I now know that my correct bra size is 32G. I did try several other brands (one from the US, 2 from the UK and 2 others from France) but none of them fit me as well as this bra. The 3-D spacer foam cups provide lift and support with a natural rounded shape. The Simone Perele bras are expensive but are well worth it.
