Used to fit
This is honestly the most comfortable bra I've had in a very, very long time. I literally squeeled with glee the first time I put this on. It's incredibly gorgeous, it's soft, it's comfortable to wear, and it doesn't dig (too badly) into my breast tissue.
So I got it in the nude shade, which is definitely closer to a light tan or light olive skintone. Even in a plain shade, the embroidery and detailing still make it beautiful.
The wires in this bra seem to run rather wide, so they're better on someone with a wide root such as myself. They are very close together in the front, but not touching, so if your breast tissue is touching, you might experience some discomfort there (though my own tissue is actually touching, and this is one of the few bras that isn't incredibly uncomfortable on my natural cleavage).
The cup is definitely somewhat shallow...not overly so, but it would not be enough for someone who needs deep cups. Likewise, it also might be a bit big still for people who need particularly shallow cups.
The band I didn't find painful at all...I tend to run between two band sizes (32-34), so sometimes a 32 is just too tight. But in this case, the band definitely stretched out over time. After a week of wearing it (giving it days off in between), I'm on the second hook on my 32.
The only real complaint that I do have about this bra is that the straps are rather far apart, which sucks for people who have narrow shoulders. You might find yourself trying to slide them back into place multiple times during the day.
The overall quality of this bra is good - even though it looks delicate and pretty, I can imagine it lasting well over time.
