Bit of background: I only recently started wearing my correct bra size, so I was used to a much looser band, and untacked gore, and basically a completely different bra feel. Still getting used to how bras should fit, so some of these comments may not apply to everyone.
From the beginning, I though this bra was beautiful and made my boobs look better than anything else I had ever tried. However, it was fairly uncomfortable, - the center gore digs into my sternum, and the underwires seem to be pressing uncomfortably against my ribs in a couple of spots. Also, because the straps are fairly wide set, and I have a small frame, I felt like the bra straps were in my armpits.
I had to gently bend the wires away from my chest at the gore, which reduced the pressing, and slightly curved them to fit my ribcage better. This made the bra more bearable to wear for longer periods of time, but didn't quite fix all of discomfort. What did though was correcting my posture. When I sit/stand up straight, with my shoulders back, I can barely feel the bra, and the straps are magically moved out from my armpits. (I sit at a computer most of the day, so I have a tendency to slouch/hunch over.) I realize that this may not apply to everyone, but it helped me a lot!
Abbreviated version: boobs look awesome, fits well, slightly uncomfortably wires, but getting better with minor adjustments.
