This is a really beautiful bra. It's a sturdy, shiny satin and the mesh on top has lovely gold embroidery and open cutwork. It looks just amazing and is very flattering on top of the breast.
I think this bra runs true to size in the band. I'm a large 32/small 34 and the 32 was comfortable and fit, but distorted the wires when fastened. With an extender it was much better and still wearable, and the wires stayed in the right place then.
Unfortunately the cup is just not the right shape for me. It's too wide (surprising, as I like wide wires!) and waaaaay too shallow. The apex is totally in the wrong place for my relatively balanced boobs. I have a ton of projection at the bottom and center, and a fair amount of tissue on top, as well as a high root. The wins are too long for me, and get all up under my arms... and in turn they get pushed down which exacerbates the problem of the bra being too shallow at the bottom of the cup for me. I end up being able to pinch a good inch of fabric after just a few minutes at the bottom and sides of the bra, while the top starts to press into the tissue and gives me the inverted seven look.
It also goes all east-west on me because the apex just isn't right for me. It's too far out to the sides... for all that I have a wide root I'm pretty front and center.
I'm very sad this bra doesn't work, because I really love it, but it's just not a match.
