Rated 5 out of 5Â by ThunderMoomba just what a balconette is supposed to be :)
This lovely Mimi Holiday number is exactly what it's supposed to be - a decorative balconette bra. Balconettes are designed to have a horizontal line across the chest, to eliminate cups revealing themselves in a low-cut neckline. The bra brings together the breasts and lifts them, giving a corseted appearance; if you haven't worn a balconette before, it may feel a bit unusual at first, but trust me, this lovely does what it's supposed to. Runs true to size in my opinion. It's gorgeous as well - the green is stellar, and the in-person color matches mostly the first photo (without the model; the model's photos show the bra to be slightly more "mint" in color than it actually is). Excellent buy as a special, fun, functional, and "feel good" piece of lingerie for your collection - a very nice treat for yourself!

Not a fan of the cut. The notes said C and D cups should go up... so should a B. The bra just fit oddly though. The cups were too close together. I'm a huge fan of lift and squeeze bras, but there was nothing attractive about what this did for me. Maybe it's because I needed a larger cup (I've *never* in my entire life worn a C, so that I am even considering it speaks volumes to how off the sizing is on this.) I wanted to like this. The colors are as pictured and it's a really pretty bra... But it looks terrible both under clothes and by itself. Unflattering.
