32DD - Betsey Johnson Intimates » Lace Balconette Underwire (723858)

Bestsey Johnson, bra, a bra that fits, balconette, 32dd

This bra fits very well and is the first balconette style I have owned. I don't know why I tried it on several times before buying it. I guess the lace had me concerned that it would show, but I really don't know why I worry about that so much since I mostly wear t-shirts and don’t wear a lot of white.

I do get a very tiny gap near the gore on my right breast which is a bit smaller than the left, it's such a small gap it is only noticeable when I move my arms in certain position or am actively trying to see if I get any gapping. I just wish I had bought it sooner and that I could have worn it out of the store. I think this is the first bra I've had that the underwire doesn't get pushed down, it's great to have wire that stays at the IMF.


This is probably my best fitting bra with my Parfait Charlotte in a close second (Charlottes band is a bit tight otherwise it's a great fit). I do think that the cups may run large on this bra and the band a bit on the small side (perfect for me since most 32's are a bit loose and 30's a bit tight), since I don't fit in many 32DD bras including other Betsey Johnson styles

I have since passed this bra on, while it was a decent fit, I have since found better fitting bras.   This one didn't give quite as much lift and cleavage as I ideally like, but was a great starting point to find a better fit. Looking back on the photos and measurements the gore is a bit wide as are the wires (my ideal wire width is between 5-5.5in).
