    I’m surprised that most of them come in sort of limited cup-sizes 😮 Also, I wish there were more bras made for heavier women who need a bit smaller band sizes – being a small 34band, but definitely plus-sized, makes it rather limited 🙁 I’ve found that the Tango and Ariza has what I would call plus-size friendly bands: wide band, wide and stretchy seams, and cover high under the arm etc. But I haven’t been able to find any with side support in the cups, which a lot of plus-sized bras seem to have, but not for the smaller bands :/

      I was shocked at the cup sizes myself because I thought they were going to give more options for women in the 40+ bands as well as those in H+ cup sizes. However, they could be testing the water with sizes they know will sell and slowly adding more as time goes by. Have you ever tried the Andorra or Jasmine from Panache? I can appreciate the desire to have wider wings, and I wish manufacturers would offer some styles like this. They don’t have to have high underwires or cups per se, but a stretchy, wider wing would be welcomed by many of my customers!

    I really like some of the designs, especially the Bellise! It looks like they are all full cup shapes except the Bellise, though, which may be problematic for shallow profiles!

    My rib cage is a bit small for them (like Elomi), but I guess one can’t wear every bra!

      One of the things I am most interested in seeing with this line is how it fits women of different shapes. Most of the styles are full-coverage albeit ones that have more of a v-shaped neckline, and I would like to see how this design choice stacks up against the different offerings from Panache’s Superbra line, Elomi, and Goddess!

    Ditto on the shame for the small cup range; but I guess they are just putting their toes in.

    I WANT the Bellise. Also, love the price range! 🙂

      The price range is fantastic for this line, and I think the print on the Bellise is so unique and fun!

    Thank you for doing this! I’m almost shocked to see the size range. This doesn’t really expand a lot of sizes for the plus size women. I mean, for under 40 bands there already is a lot of bras for higher cup sizes. And for plus 40 bands it isn’t impossible to find, say, a G cup. But what’s really missing in the market are 40-46 H-J cups. 🙁

      I completely agree, Bra Nightmares! I thought this line would address the lack of bras in that size range, but I was a little sad to see it tends to stick with “safer” sizes. I have several women in the 44-50 band size range who really need more G+ options.
