I love you, Ashley. (34C)

The Ashley Boutique striped bra by Oh La La Cheri is a comfortable and sexy bra in a design unlike others I've seen on EF or anywhere else. It's a quality product that fits well and can be worn under clothes all day for an easy transition to sexy-times at night.

extremely useful review
The Ashley Boutique striped bra by Oh La La Cheri is a black and white striped bra featuring underwire, white lace overlay and trim, and removable straps. This review is for size 34C. I am a 32C, but that size is not available. Based on other reviews that complained of sizing issues and said to size up, I decided to go up a size to a 34C, which is available. Although the band is looser than I would have bought in the store, it does fit, and is a very comfortable bra on par with others in my collection.

The bra arrived in a plastic Oh La La Cheri bag on a hanger also featuring the maker's name. I don't hang bras, so I got rid of the hanger.

Basic facts:

- There is underwire and very, very light padding--you really have to squeeze the bottom and the top to tell there is slightly more padding at the bottom. This is not a push-up bra.

- There are removable straps that have 2.75" long bows on them.

- The same size bow (2.75" long) is also between the cups, but it doesn't reach below the trim.

- There is white lace trim around the entire bra except the 3-hook closure.

- It is a standard 3-hook closure.

- There is plastic boning on each side directly below the armpit.

- The band width is 27" unstretched and 32.5" stretched, laying flat.

- The bra is made of 90% nylon and 10% spandex.

- It is to be hand washed in cold water and hung to dry. It should never be bleached. I will follow these instructions as I do with all of my bras.

The reason I picked this set is that it seemed comfortable and sexy at the same time, so I could wear it all day and then when my partner and I are in for the night, I can take it off and transition quite easily into sexy-time without darting to the closet. It definitely fulfills this requirement.
Experience
This is a really comfortable bra that doesn't dig into my sides or cause back fat (it shouldn't since it's a size up) and also looks sexy. I purchased it with the Ashley Boutique striped boyshorts, sold separately, and my partner and I adore the set.

I wore this bra all day today, cooking, walking, bending, cleaning, sitting, and doing other daily activities, and I had no comfort problems at all. The underwire is comfortable while providing support, the cups shape me well, and I love that it can become a strapless bra. My problem is that I am not sure how long I could wear this as a strapless bra, or what I would wear it with that would help keep the band up with its looseness. That's expected since I had to go up a size. Had this been available in 32C, I think it would have actually been the perfect bra! However, based on the other reviews, it's quite possible that the 34C would have been the best choice for me anyway. My breasts fill in the cups well.

The reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is that it may be uncomfortable and need constant adjusting as a strapless bra, that there are little fuzzies on the white lace that I am afraid may snag, and that sometimes the bow turns sideways with movement. Other than that, this is an awesome bra.

Follow-up commentary
I still love this set, but I do wish it had come in a 32C so I could have had my proper band size. This isn't a huge deal, but it does slide down a bit and is a little uncomfortable at times so I find myself pushing it up. My boobs fit nicely into the cups though, and I love the look of it. Overall, it is a great set, and my partner also really likes it. I love wearing this bra with the underwear that matches and I love that there is the option to wear it as a strapless bra. It is still in great shape, as are the underwear, and I would definitely buy from Oh La La Cheri again.
