Rated 2 out of 5 by Cindella Clever Concept, Poor Design
I purchased this bra because it seemed like the design was practical; put the eye hooks in the front so you aren't pulling muscles in your shoulder blindly trying to catch closure hooks. Well, there is a good reason why all bras aren't designed the way this one is; it bunches up. If you are wearing a bulky, loose sweater, you may be able to pull it off, but under anything else, you may be suspected of shoplifting an egg or having a tumor between your breasts.
A majority of my lingerie has been purchased from Anthro, but I feel the design and quality has declined in the last year or so, and this bra is representative of that opinion. Aside from the closure debacle, the lace tore within minutes of wearing it for the first time.
Aesthetically, I love the deep yet vibrant persimmon with the contrasting coral. It spreads the breasts apart which is oddly flattering. This may not be the case for a woman with a small cup size (I am a B).
I want to like this bra, but frankly the concept is more ideal than the actual product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anthrofixation Different but cute.
For the most part everything fits just fine. I normally wear a 34C and so I ordered just that. It "fits" the way it's supposed to (I think) but the bra is different from other bras I usually wear so it feels funny on. I've been wearing it for a bit now and I'm getting used to it though. The cups separate the breasts and because of that the underwire goes further around the sides than normal bras. I think if my breast size were any bigger it would not fit as well. I think the style lends itself to smaller breasts. I wish it was more adjustable but I don't know how they could do it. Maybe a second column of hooks? I also ordered the Throwback Panty and I like it. It's actually comfortable enough I think I could sleep in it! The lace is good quality and adds a sweet touch. All in all I really like this set.

I am in love with this bra. I also bought the underwear to match. I am usually a 34A, but I had to buy this bra in a 34C. Not sure why the cup size is so different than most bras, but I highly recommend it! It is not the best bra to wear all day long, the corset front can become a but uncomfortable because there is so much wire in it, but it's perfect for that special date.
