Used to fit
I wanted to love this bra so badly! The print is adorable and the color scheme is awesome. Like many others have said, the fabric feels very stiff. I feel like the horizontal-ish seam is a little higher than it is on my Zia, which fits like a dream (even if I have to wear it on the smallest set of hooks). This makes it look a little weird. The top section lays flat, but the seam gets a little wrinkly and there's a bit of space there. From the side, it kind of makes it look like my boobs are pointing upward. I'm hoping it'll soften up and not look so strange after I wash it once or twice.
The band also feels tighter than my Lucy. It's not unpleasantly tight, but I think I'm fairly compressible (under my boobs I measure anywhere from 27.5"-29.5" depending on how tight I pull the tape). Perhaps a less squishy person would want to size up, especially if you're prone to being hurt by pressure from your underwires and stuff.
Bought it off Ebay, and I can't return it, so I'll either decide it's acceptable or I'll have to pass it on to someone else. I'm crossing my fingers for the former, 'cause it's just so cute. I'll probably be avoiding this style in the future though, because I get a rounder profile from both my Lucy and my Zia.
A little confused, though - I've seen people say it would be better for both full on top or full on bottom breasts. Using BrasIHate's leaning over test, I decided that my bigger boob was full on top, (but my little one is full on bottom? Is that normal? People always talk about their boobs being different sizes, but different shapes?) but if this bra is for full on top boobs, then maybe I'm mistaken.
Edit: I've worn it 3 times and washed it once. If it doesn't soften up on the next washing I'm going to have to put her up for sale, 'cause my boobs look wicked strange under t-shirts, and that's pretty much all I ever wear.
