Passion lace plunge bra
Nice bra for larger sizes.
I purchased this during the buy one, get one 50% of sale and was unsure of my exact size with this bra. I bought one in a 44DD and one in a 44DDD. Much pleased to say that I fit very well into the 44DD and the cups provide amazing support and enough lift without being in your face-or anybody else's for that matter!-about it.
The cup 'padding' is made of an air pocket type system. Maybe I didn't read well enough, but I wasn't expecting that. It's not uncomfortable, it just caught me off guard. This bra does me wonders as far as support goes: as other reviewers wrote, the straps ARE pretty short, even when let out all the way. Mine barely dig into my shoulders, but after a nine hour day it's noticed. The cups give enough lift for those of us with twins affected by gravity and gives them a very well rounded, wholesome shape without looking unnatural. The girth straps are something I love. I absolutely adore the four clasp width as it really tucks away and supports the creases and 'back fat' my previously thin-strapped and ill-fitting bras created and cut into me over the years.
If there was one drawback to this bra, it would be the front portion where the fabric lines the bottom side of the cup and wraps around the wires: Perhaps it's just me, perhaps I've gotten a size to small and really needed a 46 instead of a 44, but the wires don't feel quite right. Perhaps I've just gone too long without this torture devices, only time will tell, however it doesn't have much padding behind where the wires come in contact with your breasts. It leaves me a bit sore and I can already foreshadow the wires poking me in the ribs if worn too often. Will have to fix that before it happens.
As for the design: I bought this bra in the black and tan and the red and black. I thought for sure the red and black would be that unloved step-child that just came with a good package deal, however it turns out I love that color combo even more every time I look at it! It's just enough rich ruby red to show through the black mesh and looks so seductive and stunning. I will certainly be returning the size that was too large and buying another. Perhaps I'll be bold and go for the blue one. :)
For all its downfalls, I think the perks far outweigh them, especially for the price and especially because of the yucky bras this one is replacing. Hallelujah!

Nice to have a sexy bra that makes for a surprise when viewed by others.

I would recommend this but...
The straps are way too short. I let them out all the way and they still dig and feel tight. I sure hope this problem can be fixed.

i love how amazing this bra makes my girls look. Im a DDD and it does a great job of holding me up all day. my only complaint is that the straps feel a bit tight even when let out all the way.
