Ok, the lovely people at Fauve are not, for the record, murderers. I'm confident that the decisions that drove me into a frenzy weren't made by Fauve itself. In fact, those choices don't come down to one individual; they're simply a reflection of the lingerie world you and I live in.

I took my "common" size (30FF) and found all the padded half cups available now, or throughout the rest of the Spring/Summer 2013 season.
Bravissimo: Moulin Rose, Retro Bloom, Paradiso Plum Padded Half Cups
Freya: Secret Garden, Totally Tartan, Patsy, Secret Garden, Lauren Padded Half Cups; Deco Moulded Half Cup
Masquerade: Rhea, Antoinette
Fauve: Maya, Emmanuelle, Coco, Lucille, Dominique, Marla
Curvy Kate: Tease Me, Entice
Claudette: Sophia Icon
Parfait: Arabella, Cassandra, Florence, Lola, Charlotte, Leslie
There are 26 bras listed above and from the same companies, I could only find two soft half cups. The Bravissimo Mademoiselle and the Claudette Sophia Minx are both beautiful lined bras, but I couldn't find a single sheer style in my size. Admittedly, there were a handful of close contenders: Masquerade makes two that might qualify (Persia and Orla), unfortunately their "Non Padded Balconnet" shape heaps on more coverage than a demi. The Freya Gem and Fauve Chloe both discontinue production after an F cup.

What's your "oh-yeah!" bra? Do you have a favorite type you're frantic for?
You'd think that one of the big Brit brands would want to tackle this open market, but they've all but abandoned it. Or, am I a lone wolf on this one? Do you prefer padded half cups??
