We'll say it: the best bralette we've ever made. Improving on prior models, it's all about the ultra plush, super stretchy chest band elastic. And Lux, of course. That, plus the convertible and adjustable straps - and voila - this is going to give any daily bra you have a run for its money. Soft, supportive, no underwire nonsense, Lux, and removable cups...that is all.
I first bought one of these bras a little over two years ago and absolutely fell in love with it. When I went to order another, they were out of stock. And last year they were gone. I have been searching and searching for another bra like this since then, and no one makes anything that came close. So THANK YOU SO MUCH for bringing it back!
What do I love? The narrow, adjustable AND convertible straps. I have a long torso and many non-adjustable straps are too short for me. PLUS, I can wear this bra with both traditional and racerback cut tank styles - it's so much more comfortable to be able to actually reposition the straps in a crossed position than to try and hook them together in the middle. I know there is a place for wider straps, but some of us really want and love the narrow ones for everyday wear. I love the crazy soft and comfortable fabric that stays breathable even on hot, muggy summer days.. The minimalist, pull-on styling with no hooks or clasps in the back is fantastic. The look is simple and cute and sexy all at the same time.
I am 5'7", 140lbs, muscular/athletic build. 34/36 B bra - and the Medium is a perfect fit for me. I wear this daily year-round, also while hiking, walking, riding my bike... It is only a light-medium support bra, so I would not recommend it for high impact activities.
Thanks again, Oiselle! I'm so delighted to finally have two more of these bras!
I was really hoping to give these bras 5 stars, but there are two issues that are significant enough that I feel the need to take away a star. First, the seams that run up the sides of the breasts are EXTREMELY visible under thin shirts. It doesn't detract from comfort, but I like my bras as minimal as possible, both in comfort and appearance, and having bulky seams showing through my clothing is not something I want. Second, the little loop that has the size written on it is itchy, and trying to remove it without cutting the fabric is extremely nerve-wrecking. Also, the little remaining nubs still cause some minor itching. It would be nice if the stitching for the loops was separate from the stitching that holds the bras together so that they could be completely removed with a seam ripper.
If Oiselle fixed these two problems, I would never buy another bra. The fabric is amazing, the adjustable straps are long enough for my long torso, the chest band magically stays in place without being constricting (I'd say they are true to size), and they seem to accomodate a variety of breast sizes. (Mine are two different sizes so this can be an issue.) As is, they are nice enough that I'm keeping a couple of them and will alternate them with my other bras that have different pros and cons, but wishing they didn't have these issues.
I loved the original version and these are even better! Slightly longer in body length but same fit. These are the best bras for everyday wear, so comfy with just the right amount of support and not too much fabric. usually wear a size 4-6 in O bras and XS in O tops and I wear a small in these.
