Aerie Vintage Lace Soft Bustier
I was kind of underwhelmed when I got this in the mail. I thought it would be longer but it's pretty much only a little longer than length of your average bandeau. The best thing about it is the fit. It's not too tight and it won't fall or anything. I got a S and I'm 5'1"/106lbs and it fits me pretty perfectly. It's a little tight obviously but that's how they stay on. I just wish this bralette was a little bit longer.

I now love bandeaus!
I bought these with the intention of wearing this under a tank top so you wouldn't have to wear another tank top underneath since most are see through. I am very happy with this buy and it looks great underneath tanks because of the lace detail!

I didn't expect to wear this everyday!
I love this bra and I'll definitely ask my mom if she can buy another for me. At first, it was a bit too tight and I wished that there had been hooks or a zipper or something in the back to make it easier to put on. I had trouble getting it over my hips when stepping into and pulling it up, and I also had trouble fitting it around both arms and my head when putting it on from above. But after wearing it a few times, it's definitely loosened to a more comfortable setting.
There are two minor things that kind of bother me, though. I bought this bra in black and it is now covered with little bits of lint. I think it may be from a combination of washing it with linty clothes and wearing linty clothes on top of it. But since no one sees my bra other than myself, it's really not a problem.
The other thing is that it sometimes slips down on me. It always seems to happen while I paint my nails for some reason, and I can't pull it up hahah
Overall it's a really good bra and allows you to wear strapless tops/dresses and even top with wide necklines without any straps showing. Since most of my tops have wide necklines, I don't have to worry about straps showing when I wear this bra. I still wear it with things that I wouldn't have to since it's that comfortable.

Pretty pretty things
I got this in bright pink! I'm not sure how I feel about the fit though. I got the medium for my 34D chest thinking that it would be fine. It's a bit too tight though. Definitely wearable, but a little challenging to get off. (Seriously, how the heck do you get these things off?) And it is a little shorter than I was expecting. But the color is so vibrant and pretty!
