I have quite soft breast tissue on a wide root, but with a decent amount of upper fullness. This bra was cut for a shape very different than mine, so when my breasts filled the cups and conformed to their shape it ended up looking quite strange. This bra was also slightly too small for me which didn't help matters.
I think that someone with narrower breasts than me (in need of narrower wires and with more of a "tall" shape to their breast) would find this bra quite flattering. It is cut loose enough in the top that someone with moderate upper fullness could fill it out, but tight enough that someone with a somewhat full on bottom shape (shallower above the apex) could do well in it as well.
The gore is very, very slim. The underwire channels actually touch, so the gore is a small triangle between where they meet and the bottom of the band. Moreover, the straps are fully adjustable which made it awesome for shorty me with the high chest.
All around it's a quite pretty bra well suited to those with a narrow chest, just not the right size or - more significantly - the right shape for my bust.
This bra is not owned any more
