I did return this - mainly because the bra band was insanely large. I purchased a 32, though in truth, a 30 would likely have been too big. I could have returned it for one cup size up and one back size down, but (when I emailed Figleaves for more sizing info) I was advised that there was but one left in that size and that I'd be wise to purchase it in advance of returning the mis-sized one I already had in my possession. This would have resulted in another 75 bucks on my credit card (for an interim period). I knew I really didn't like it that much when I determined it wasn't worth the interim expense or hassle.
I'll say that this style, my only exposure to the brand so far, fits generously in both band and cup size. In this respect, it's good for deep breasts with a narrow root, but most definitely go down one back size (at least). If you have shallow breasts, I'm not sure that this style is for you. It's hard for me to tell how this would wear given that, on me, it was so loose. I suspect, if the band were right, the fit would be quite uplifting. It does seem to suffer from the recent Freya "mega-stretchy band" issue wherein the band fabric would likely stretch out quickly, regardless of the size.
The undies fit very nicely (true to size, IMO), and the material for the set is soft (if somewhat stretchy).
I will definitely consider purchasing another Fauve in the future, though probably in a 30 band. From what I've discovered online, it does seem to cater mostly to those who prefer molded and padded cups, from what I've seen online, and it is rather dramatic, but I'm always in search of bras that fit beautifully and I sense that Fauve has potential.
So, today's question: Have you tried this brand? If yes, how did you find the fit? Do you like this style? (Looking at it now, it seems strange that I purchased it. It's vaguely gaudy in the photo...) Let's talk.
