I purchased this bra in white from a local bra store.
I really like the soft cup bras, the lace is so pretty! The embroidery and seams might show on a thinner shirt, but it's not terribly noticeable.
Overall I think the shape is good for me- it's nicely rounded and doesn't seem to be trying to change my shape.
The mesh on the top is not stretchy, so it looks like slight quadboob when I push my shoulders back, but I feel like that's normal.
The straps are a little wider than I'm used to, but I like it.
I sometimes have trouble filling in the bottom of the cup of other bras, which seems to push the wires down lower on my chest, but this bra fills the bottom nicely and seems to sit where it's supposed to.
I am in between band sizes, generally measuring ... myself at around 33 or 32.5 inches, so I'm unsure about the 34 band size. The band feels pretty stretchy to me, and I can comfortably wear it on any of the hooks. I suspect the store owner did not have this bra in a 32 band in a cup that would fit me in stock, so she may have fit me into the closest one, rather than recommend something she didn't have. It's also possible she tends to give people a looser fit anyway, as she originally recommended a 36 band last year when I was fitted. I think I'm concerned that this band will become too loose as it breaks in. I'll have to read some other reviews to see how it does over time.
Anyway, I wonder if I would prefer a 32 band in this bra, since it feels pretty stretchy. I think I'll probably purchase other colors of this bra in the near future.
