The race for a great racerback bra… The Passionata Starlight Plunge T-Shirt Racerback review
I want to be honest, I am not a racerback bra fan. I hate the front closure that are on most of them and I never like how the bra straps sit on my shoulders. Then whenever I did get one, I was always upset because somehow the straps still showed no matter what style of top I wore. Then came the Passionata Starlight Racerback Bra. When we received this bra into the shop a couple of weeks ago and I took it out of the box I said I have to give racerback bras a try one more time.
The Passionata line is manufacturered by the same company that makes Chantelle. The same quality is seen in this bra as any Chantelle bra that I own. It is a true t-shirt bra as you could not see it under any clothes that I wore. The cups are contoured that gives you lift and support while providing a rounded shape. Plus you have the added benefit of being lightly padded for modestly.
This bra definitely has a plunge to it making it perfect for all different types of shirts. It is a underwire and the center gore is almost like a triangle with the underwires touching. I thought this might be uncomfortable at first and it did take some adjusting but overall it works for this bra. The sides have sewn-on elastic at the top and a wide textured pattern on the bottom, making the fit snug and comfortable.
The V-racerback detail is quite unique. It features a soft mesh triangle framed by the wide textured lace pattern that is seen on the sides of the bra. It has a triangle center to accommodate a keyhole shirt nicely.
The straps in the front are adjustable with coated metal hardware and a back hook and eye closure that is slightly padded with coated metal hardware.
Just like with any Chantelle bra that I get, the sizing was perfect for me. This bra was like putting on one of your favorite jeans. I needed to adjust it a little to get everything into place but once that was done, everything stayed in place the whole day. I could not get over that I did not need to adjust the bra at all during the day. This will fast become one of the favorite bras.
The V Racerback did show through top of my tank top but I did not mind because of the lace detail, it seemed that it almost should be seen. Also the way the sides taper to the hook and eye closure there is absolutely no back fat going on.
This bra comes in a 30-38 band and a C-H cup.
The bra gives you a full rounded shape with tons of lift and cleavage. The bra itself could be worn with a many different style tops that you are looking for making it a versatile bra for anyone to have.
It fit smoothly under all the shirts that I tried it with including the clingy tank top. This bra is meant to be seen from the back but the cups are so smooth in the front it makes it perfect for any t-shirt.
Currently this bra only comes in Perfect Nude. Hopefully they will add some fashion colors or bring back the Black from last season. The bra has made me a convert on racerback bras. I am thrilled about this upcoming summer because of it.
