Back in April, I told you my daydreams for how I would use my La Petite Coquette Groupon. Since then, I certainly have gotten a lot of use out of it. I’ve visited the store to make two purchases and two returns and now simply have a store credit. It’s not because I don’t love the bras I bought. They were gorgeous.
The first one I walked away with was the new Prima Donna Madison 0162129–no lace on the cup this time, and I love the look. Based on what I learned with my first Prima Donna Madison purchase, I made sure to purchase it in 34H, even though I could barely fasten it. I also finally followed my own advice and purchased a bra extender in the garment district for $2.50. After that, it was almost perfect.

Almost perfect because the bra lay flat at the top of the breasts once I used the extender, but beneath the breasts I ran into the same problem I’ve written about before: my breasts didn’t fill the cup. See the extra room in the photo below.
I decided I couldn’t live with this, so back to the store I went where I tried the Madison 0162121 in 36G. It fit perfectly. However, I only wanted the 0162129 in cafe, and crazily, La Petite Coquette won’t make special orders.
So I decided to take a closer look at the Empreinte Kaela that SÃ©verine Maisonnasse wrote to tell me about recently. I had tried it on my original visit to the store but forgotten to compare it to the Melody that I wrote about last October. Here was my chance. Look for a comparison in my next post!
