I think if I had one cup size bigger I would love this bra. It's my fault, I'm still nursing and I think I was completely empty when I went and picked it out! I'm hopeful that in a couple months it will fit better (I'm 5 mos postpartum and still losing the weight). The cups on this are Very comfortable and smooth, and I like the pretty subtle details. I put that I get quadraboob a bit, but it really is minimal. Total strap width is .75inches, but that's the total width - it's actually double straps. The straps are wide-set so it will work for a boat-neck shirt very well, but not a regular tank top. The band size fits me very well and the underwire doesn't poke under my arms. The bottom of the underwire is a bit uncomfortable, but I've learned that means I probably need a slightly bigger cup size!
If I had to choose again I probably would not have purchased it, because it was not on sale and I had absolutely no intention of spending $130 on one bra (eek), but I was excited to go shopping for my first real bra after 3 kids and was focused on finding something comfortable and I spaced checking the prices :/ I am hopeful that it will fit better soon and I'll love it! In the meantime it's still comfortable enough to wear. I'll check back after I lose a bit more weight and see if it works better.
