|Empreinte Ophelia in Ardoise|
|And here's a closeup of the cup construction, lace and depth. Lord this thing is gorgeous.|
Thing is, I've been waiting since I saw this post, which provided me with this first glimpse (from Curve NY), 8-freakin' months ago:

The bra is, frankly, perfection. I don't know how Empreinte sources lace with such delicateness, such sexiness, which somehow still manages to support and lift optimally. One's boobs are front and centre - in no way splayed to the sides so it's a) slimming and b) very complimentary to the deep bust. Oh, and it's comfortable.
As mentioned - and is the case with most Empreinte styles, the shape is deep and suits narrow roots best. If you have a shallow shape and wide placement of the breasts, stay away. If you have projectile boobs, this one's for you. I sense it fits a bust of even fullness best, though slightly top or bottom heavy would be accommodated. If you're at either extreme, the bra may not work. Mind you, it's not particularly closed at the top.
I've decided, since I could technically desist from buying another bra till 2023 (and I'd still have enough to see me through), this will be my only purchase this season. That is, until the next batch of mega-sales when I may be required to do my share of market research.
So, whatcha think?
