Since there are several reviews I need to do, I’m going to break them up over several days because of my lack of time. My baby is teething, and very grumpy, so forgive me if my review sounds a little choppy. It’s because I had to keep getting up to take care of the baby! So now for the actual review…
I had ordered a 30HH with 30J being my usual size. Occasionally I can fit into a 30HH, so since this one only went up to HH, I decided to try it. It was a struggle to get it on. The cups were much too small, as you can see in the picture! Based on the measurements I took of the bra, and the way it fit on me, I would say this one runs 2 or 3 cup sizes small.
The band also ran small. Unstretched, it measured 25 inches. Stretched, (carefully, because I’m returning it!) it measured 28 inches. That’s not close enough to a 30 band for me…
The quality I wasn’t thrilled about, either. It made a crinkling sound when I picked it up, and the fabric seemed cheap. The foam lining was kind of itchy.
The styling was beautiful, though! I loved the little rosebud detail on the center gore, and the animal stripes were just my thing! The cut of the cups looked like it would have shown a little cleavage, if it had fit. Beautiful, Miss Mandalay!
If you’re thinking now maybe you shouldn’t try it, I would say, go ahead, but order a band size up, and two cup sizes up from your usual! The 30HH fit like a 28H.
So have you tried any Miss Mandalay? What was your experience?
