Baci's Sizing is Wild

For the same price, you might be able to find a slightly nicer bra at a big box store. However, this one is comfortable and supportive enough to wear on a daily basis with the added benefit of being convertible. The cups do run a bit small, so take that into consideration when shopping. The pattern is also a bit lackluster in person.
Published:
Pros:
Comfortable, no immediately quality issues, gives a little shape to breasts
Cons:
Cups run small, ugly print in person, doesn't offer any push up, doesn't seem long-lasting

extremely useful review
I have worn this bra every day since getting it, which is a testament to its comforts. However, it's not without its flaws.

Baci packages this in an unnecessary box, which means Eden's shipping box is much larger than you'd think. I don't think they use any shipping envelopes, but if you want your mail carrier to leave it in the box, it probably won't fit.

Out of the box, I was immediately surprised by the color. It's simply mixed animal patterns on tan. In the product images, the filter or editing makes it appear more shiny and perhaps monochromatic, but it's a very flat tan. It's not quite as attractive in person, but I shouldn't be surprised. I experienced the same issue with Baci's editing before.

Upon first trying on the animal print bra, I noticed a few things. The straps are a good 1/2" wide, which makes them feel extremely secure. They're also a little short. They were almost fully extended, and I had to extend them fully when wearing it as a regular bra. As I'm only 5'2" and have a short body, I think this would be problematic for some women.

I did buy this to wear like a regular bra. I don't find racer back style to be comfortable, and I have no need for this as a halter. However, the thick straps would work well for that. The elastic straps are a bit lighter than the rest of the bra, and have a shiny appearance because of the elastic. However, this might work as a flesh tone-bra for some women with lighter skin.

One thing I do find, which is common with all multi-way bras, is that the straps sometimes come loose when I'm putting it on. There's little metal hooks at the ends of each strap, which slide into loops onto the bra itself. This requires me to take it off, re-hook and start all over again, but I don't know that there's any way to avoid it. At least they're durable metal and not plastic, which tends to break over time. Below, you can see the metal strap hooks and 3-hook connectors on the band itself.




There's some weird material issues around the hooks. The animal print fabric doesn't seem like it was sewn on quite correctly, but no one will likely notice. In the picture below, you can see how the printed fabric doesn't cover the entire loop for the hook.



Like the straps, the band is a little wider. The hook closure has three hooks, instead of two. I like this. It sits flat against my skin, and stays in place all day. There's no uncomfortable chafing or moving. Unlike Baci's maximum cleavage bra the elastic parts of this bra all snap back to their original size and don't seem flimsy.

The cups are lightly lined and shaped. More-so than the maximum cleavage bra. The cups do run small, but not quite as small with the animal print bra. My 38C is a bit tight on my breasts, but not so much to create an extra pair. I can wear this under clingier tees without feeling self conscious, which I couldn't with the maximum cleavage bra. The cups are also cut a little lower, which makes this bra more compatible with low-cut tops.

I find that the slightly-small cups do give my breasts a decent shape, but they don't do anything to lift them up. I do prefer a bra that does both; however, this one is comfortable and supportive enough that I don't mind the lack of pushup. It does have what feels like a metal underwire in the cups; however, it's not as dramatic a lift as other bras.

For now, this will be my daily wear bra; although, I'll probably hop off to VS when they have some good sales to find something that is a little higher quality. While I didn't have any problems with loose threads on this one, it doesn't seem like it will last for too long. I'll try to preserve its life by hand-washing and hanging it to dry, however.

The ribbon bow between the cups was already fraying when I got it. I may eventually cut it off, but it's a minor detail. The rest of the bra has held up pretty well.
Follow-up commentary
I wrote this one everyday for a few weeks. It's easy to clean and showed no wear. However, I wound up heading back to VS to find a bra that made my boobs look really good. I just need more push up than this offers.
