For the most part this bra fit better than I expected - I ordered it because I got a good deal and I remember the name coming up in previous fit checks and recommendations. I like the firm band and feel like it keeps me very contained regardless of how I'm sitting or standing. The straps are fully adjustable which is great because I'm a shorty with a short torso (this wasn't so great with tall wires/wing though). The gore comes up pretty high in the front but it lays flush and is comfortable and contributes to the overall contained, supported feeling.
The out-of-the-box impression of the fabric was ... that it was pretty soft and light while still solid. Wearing it, the fabric was not forgiving at all along the top line. You basically have to fit it perfectly on top for there to not be floating fabric or a quadboob effect. Luckily I'm close enough in the upper fullness department, although I had slight quadboob standing straight up with shoulders pulled back and floating fabric if I'm sitting at the computer writing a bra fit testimony - I don't think it helps that I have tall roots but it works. The cup definitely has enough depth for me and seems like a Panache- Cleo lovechild. It gives a very "rain drop" look from a side view and is front-and-center, very much like a Cleo (love) but with a more firm 3-hook band (double love).
Lastly I think I'm the only person on the planet who actually quite likes the Rose Print colorway (looks true to online models). The band along the backside is a pretty, deep red like the straps. Red is also my favorite color, so...
