I'm short-waisted. Short-waisted with a larger-than-average bustline is often not a great mix. And really, I ought to have thought this out before ordering-- but it looks so much like a non-Bravissimo suit I've had for years which is getting up there in years. I ripped into the package feverishly, wiggled into the suit and posed in front of the mirror. Meh. The problem was that there was no adjustment on the straps, which on me generally amounts to The Kiss of Death. Straps tend to be universally too long, as was the case with this suit. But okay, I COULD have them tailored-- except that I just didn't care for the cup shape. On me, it just looked strange. There was also the matter of the tummy control, which plainly showed no inclination toward controlling much of anything on my person, more than likely because (again) being short-waisted, there tends to be too much fabric in the length of the average suit, often rendering tummy control ineffectual. I would like to stress that there's nothing WRONG with the suit. It's very nice. It's just not a good fit for my particular shape. Alas.
