It took me several weeks to test Sugar Candy bralette and compare it with other bras. I selected the size M with my bra size 32H (European size: 75H). This should be right size for me. When I received the package and first put the Sugar Candy bralette on, I was shocked at the pressure under the breast and on the shoulders. I thought, I might get accustomed to it and went for a walk. Yes, I got accustomed to the pressure under my breast, but not to the unbearable pain on my shoulders. I wondered: What is wrong? I loosened the straps and the bra band, but the bralette didn't have any hold then, it wrinkled and bulged. So I consulted the web site https://www.sugarcandybra.com/. There is a video on how to put Sugar Candy on and I followed the instructions. I adjusted the length of the straps so that it should stabilise the bralette but not carry the weight of my boobs. So then there was not much hold and lift any more, but there was still more pain as with my other non-wired bras. I was confused. I examined the question more closely and took measurements. I determined, that without bra there are 7.5 cm from the mammary fold to the lowest part of my boobs. When I put on Sugar Candy bralette in the manner planned, then it lifted my boobs 5 cm. This is a lot! Almost no sagging! But overbearingly painful on my shoulders! As the measurements revealed, my comfortable non-wired bras only lift my boobs 1-2 cm. But they still make a huge difference: they make my boobs fuller, rounder and they relieve the ligaments. When I adjusted the Sugar Candy straps to lift my boobs only 1-2 cm, the pain was bearable (stronger than with my other non-wired bras, however) but I disliked the shape. It almost looked like I had no bra on. So this bra only seems to work with lot of lift what causes a lot of pain. I also tried crossing the straps – with the longest straps possible – but the pain on my shoulders and back was absolutely unbearable!
