Didn't fit

The Couture Contour is a pretty comfortable bra, made of smooth, soft material. The embroidered detail at the top of the cups gives the bra a nice flourish in what otherwise would be a very utilitarian bra. I also consider it a bonus that it is not scratchy. Some Wacoals I've encountered in the past were all up on my boobs with the scratchy lace and whatnot.
I am on the fence about the fit of this bra. On the one hand, when I scoop and swoop, I get slight quadboob at top. However, the breast tissue seems to settle down after a while, giving the bra a better appearance. Does this mean I need to scoop and swoop more or can I let the boobs settle where they choose? I'm going to have to wear this model more often, and give it some thought.
The straps are comfortable, although I noticed that the range in which you can tighten them is very short. While I was able to adjust them to a comfortable length, this could be an issue, maybe if you have a short torso? There is no gapping when I lean over, and I can fill out the bottom of the cups.
The 32 band is what I would call a tight 32 - compared to some other 32 bands I've tried. I measure about a 31 at a snug fit, and 30 if I pull REALLY tight like I'm going to break the tape. I found the last hooks to be most comfortable -which is how a 32 should be, but because of my in-between size I find myself in either 30 bands, or 32 bands using the middle or even first set of hooks.
I gave this bra what I call the exercise test --in which I go through my normal routine of weighted squats and other leg and butt exercises-- and it passed with flying colors. Granted, my routine doesn't include things like jogging (for that I guess I would need to bite the bullet and get a decent sports bra) but the bra didn't shift out of place or pinch, and my breasts didn't try to escape.
Overall this seems like a good bra. I'm going to give it some more time before I decide if I need to change cup size, or if I can live with slight, periodic quadboob. When I put on a t-shirt and moved around some, you couldn't really see it, so.

[ETA]: Oh dear no, this doesn't fit each due to tissue migration or I was off to begin with. Such a shame because I love the feel of the fabric. Oh well" alt=":(" />
