Didn't fit

Finally a bra that didn't cut into my breasts at the top!
It was really nice to wear the first time, and after a little while I couldn't feel it, except for the straps where they are attached to the cups. It was quite painful after a while, since they dig into my arm/armpit. I think this will get better with wearing and washing. I don't really wear bras every day at the moment (due to long term illness) so I'm probably easier made uncomfortable by bras.
After wearing for 6 hours and sitting down a lot, the fabric was kind of scratchy at the back and the bottom of the wire. I also think this will be better after a few washes.
I haven't had any insane shoulder pain like I usually have with my ill fitting bras.
The shape is nice, not too pointy. I would prefer an even rounder shape, but it looks totally fine with this one" alt=":)" />

EDIT: The straps/wings that cut at my armpit/arm, is quite painful. It really is the only issue with the bra. I am going to try wearing it with an extender, as that might help since its really tight. I'm also looking into altering it (from the strap to the wire) by shortening the height by just 1/2 a centimetre. If I sort of fold that part a bit, I experience no discomfort, but as it can't stay folded on its own, I might sew it.
I think it's mostly an issue because I'm overweight, and have some fat in that area (well, in most areas really!) and because I'm just really sensitive" alt=":)" />

Edit no 2: the band feels wrong. It slides down in the front and I think my boobs look too east west. I haven't altered it yet, but I might.
I'm thinking about just selling it though. I haven't really worn in much and it looks fine, so it's a shame that its just lying around.

This bra is not owned any more
