Barely Breezies Bellina Bra with UltimAir Lining
I have been buying Breezies and Barely Breezies Bras for the last 10 years if not more.
I find that the Barely Breezies runs a little smaller in the cup size then the Breezies Bra. I had to go up to a size D cup and first ordered a Breezies 34D cup, but it was way too big. So I decided to try the Barely Breezies which I normally wear and ordered the 34D in that bra and it fit perfectly. Most of the time I am satisfied the way the bra fits, but there are times that I wonder if they are changing the sizing if the bra isn't at least $30 or more. Glad that there was free shipping on this bra as the return rates are really getting high. No harm in trying a Breezies Bra since it is much easier then going to the store to find one.
Great for summer months!
Beautiful lace. Sad to see this style go. I had the coral color for over a year and saw this on clearance and purchased the other colors. Love how it breathes in the summer months but prefer more coverage when the weather gets cold.
Another breezies bra that I am throwing away because the underwire has broken through the fabric.
My new favorite...
Sorry to see this bra go...I ordered all three colors, they're beautiful! The fit was great, ordered by normal size...
I wish breezies would have consistent sizing. It is a nice bra. Well constructed. Ordered my 38C. I am swimming in it. It's going back.
Fourth Breezy but not so Easy
I ordered the white in a 40DD. I have three other Breezy's that I have kept but this one is going back. The design and fabric are pretty and the feel is nice on my skin but the support is not good. Like other reviewers have stated, the straps are too rubbery. The coverage is good. If you are a C and below you are probably good with this bra but if you are a FULL C/Heavy bust and up, NOT!! The support was the main issue for me. Also Breezy does need to be more consistent in the band sizes. I now realized I should have ordered the 38 or 36 band but I do have a Breezy or two in the 40 band size. Confusing! I could not recommend this bra to any of my friends or many in my family as we are all busty ladies. May be my sister and one cousin would do well with this one.
Size of Band?
I got this originally in a 36DD and found the band to be too large. Right out of the package, I could fasten it on the shortest hooks. But I love the color, and have a tank that can all too easily shift to show my bra straps, so this bra is perfect! But I'm losing weight, and want to be able to wear this color/style when I've lost more weight, so I ordered it in 34D and guess what? I STILL CAN FASTEN IT ON THE SHORTEST HOOKS. What's with this bra?
Very little support and runs extremely big
I ordered this in a 38DD and the bra I got had to be a 44DD. I wound up giving it to my mother. It was so loose on me and hardly any support. There was very little room to adjust the straps as that part was very short. My mother said she will wear this to bed and around the house but not out in public. I don't know what happened with this bra. Seems like sizing issues are a problem with Breezies.
I am not sure but believe this bra was sized wrong. normally wear a 44D in breezies and have been measured and this is the size I should be wearing. I exclusivly wear breezies. this one measured against other breezies is approx 2-3 inches smaller. Not sure If I will reorder this. Had in turquise and the color if so bold and preety. I just worried there is a sizing problem , and cost of exchange shipping is a lot. still giving 2 stars because it is a pretty bra and love the color
Think I'll return this. Not as supportive as my other Breezies bras. Prefer the coverage of my other ones. Straps seem too narrow. Have always been pleased in the past. Still think that QVC is the best company to purchase from.
Wish I had found this sooner!
Breezies bras are usually more miss than hit with me but I took a chance on this one ~ so glad I did! The fit is wonderful and it's a beautiful bra. The only thing I don't like is the scratchy mesh used for the back strap but I'm hoping it will soften with washing and use. Breezies should bring this one back for sure!
Great Bra for Me
I'm so glad to find Breezies, which makes bras in my size (44D) that are actually pretty. I'm such an awkward size I can never find it in department stores, and if I do the bra's usually way too expensive. Or it's a huge ugly bra with fat seams and six hooks and makes my boobs like pointy volcanoes, bras I would call Grandma bras if that weren't an insult to grandmas the world over. This holds me in on the sides, which I really need. I work at a physical job where I move around all the time and find that this provides plenty of support, and I'm quite jiggly naturally. I wouldn't go jogging in it, but that's what sports bras are for. It's the comfiest bra I own. It's the only bra I don't take off as soon as I walk in the front door. For those that find the fit inaccurate, I wouldn't go by Breezies' measuring system either. I haven't found a measuring system that's actually accurate. I just learned my best fit by trial and error.
