LOVE. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
The band is nice and snug. The double layer over the cups (a foamy layer with encased underwires plus a seamed stretchy fabric cover) is super awesome. It looks good under a shirt, and I'm seriously tempted to wear it as a bikini top for fresh water swimming as the seam lines are very flattering.
The bra keeps me separated, without sticking my boobs into my armpits. I can do cartwheels without needing to adjust. Nothing pokes me or scratches me. The wires stop at "balconette" level in the centre, and then the padded fabric/mesh overlay continues up, so there's no chance of pressure sores on the sternum. This is so much more comfortable than my (now too big) Freya Underwire sports bra.
The straps are padded, as is the fabric that goes under the hooks in the back. The straps can also hook together to make the bra into a racer-back style, but I haven't tried that yet.
If only it had a lower neckline, so I could make it my every day bra. Sigh. I love my Elomi Caitlyn as well (which I also wish was lower cut), but this bra does a little minimizing due to the compression, which makes me happy on days where I don't want my boobs to be centre of attention.
Edit: It's probably not evident from the photo, but the wires in the centre gore sit against my chest, but the extension tends to poof out. I *just* fill this bra, but a cup size down was too small. If you're not very soft, or don't have a lot on top, this bra probably won't work for you.
