Excellent lift, hardly need the straps to keep the girls upright. Love the wide fully adjustable, fully elastic straps!<br />Cons: The straps are pretty wide set. If you are small (I&#39;m 5&#39;2&quot;) these will dig into your arms.

I usually have good luck with Freya bras - in a 34H. They aren&#39;t lined or padded at all. My breasts seem bottom heavy and I&#39;ve had good luck with bras similar in style to the Charlotte. I&#39;m thinking I should order at least a HH cup if not larger.

For example, once you find a bra that really fits well, are you OK with staying with that brand and style? I guess what I really want to know is, are the sizes with a brand usually consistent across all styles, or will each style fit a little different based on our unique body types?<br /><br />Thanks for your insight!!Dawn Satterwhitehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15418020629967445825noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-47248724132273782952013-08-24T17:30:13.642-07:002013-08-24T17:30:13.642-07:00I&#39;d love to know how it works out for you - I&...I&#39;d love to know how it works out for you - I&#39;ve seen evidence of some possible grading issues (showing up especially in J+ cups, seemingly), so hopefully you have good success!Christine Boosaurushttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02805463730326540323noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-47366483578165495512013-08-23T16:26:28.216-07:002013-08-23T16:26:28.216-07:00Just ordered Charlotte in Red in 3 different sizes...Just ordered Charlotte in Red in 3 different sizes 36JJ,36K and 38J.

But you&#39;re right, the shape won&#39;t work for everyone.

Overspill, under arm bulge and orange in a glass effect. There seemed to be an awful lot of bra too, especially on my fairly short torso. I think this is possibly just the wrong shape for me. It didn&#39;t give me much lift either, certainly not as much as my SorrelForbeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05255551104078871420noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3742669425385659486.post-81824523444334042332013-08-12T14:39:43.269-07:002013-08-12T14:39:43.269-07:00That&#39;s interesting to hear!
