I was really excited to find bralettes for larger chest sizes, finally some comfy support without having to wear a wired bra, but I was a bit disappointed.
Because there's no wires all the support has to come from the shoulder straps, which are quite delicate and unfortunately fold up and dig in quite a lot. My shoulders are sore with red marks from the straps digging in.
I feel if the straps were more supported so they didn't fold up, maybe even with a small, subtle foam pad build in the top of the strap, it would be a lot comfier!
It is much the same story with the strap around the ribs, it's very soft and delicate material, so immediately folds over/rolls up and then digs in. The delicate fabric is lovely, but it seems more structural support to keep it in place.
From the reviews the fit seemed to be small so as I was in-between sizes I ordered the larger one. The fit is still tight and squishes everything together a bit, which can be quite sweaty and sticky feeling.
It's a very pretty bralette and I had high hopes for it, but sadly doesn't quite work
