Pros: Variety of sizes, Pretty!!, Straps are not embarrassing if they show
Cons: Squeaks, chafing from silicone bead/mesh wings, stretched, permanent wrinkles in bottom of cups
I purchased this bra in both black and beige at an Intimacy store for around $100-$120 per bra. I was sized a 30D in US sizes. The fitter actually stated depending on the "stretchiness" of the bra they would size down to a 28. She also stated I was really inbetween a C-D cup. They stated that this molded cup is a great shape for my breast and it fit well.
Notes: Initially I noticed that the molded cup had a wrinkle in the bottom. The fitter stated this would come out with wear and it was from sitting in the drawer. Well it didn't. The wrinkles became worse. I'm not sure if it is because of the shape/weight of my breasts or exactly why. You only notice it if you touch the bottom of the cups with the bra on, or look inside the cups. It still looks great with clothes on.
When first wearing, I was unsure of the material as the seams on the edges of the band have tighter elastic than the material between. I also noticed when moving around or taking deep breaths that you could hear a "squeaking" noise. My mother has the same bra in her size and has not noticed this problem.
After a year of wear, I believe the band has stretched considerably. I have gained approx 10 lbs and the band is still too big. I'm not sure I would purchase this bra again.
