This is the first bra I've tried since calculating my true bra size. After reading many reviews of this bra I decided to size up in the band and that was definitely a smart decision. I measure about 27.4 inches comfortably snug and I am positive that a 28 band would be too small in this particular model. I should also mention that the cups and band of the bra are overall larger in blue than in coral, though I'm not really sure why.
The quality of the bra is good. After wearing it about every other day for a month, the band hasn't stretched out too much, and I am still wearing it on the loosest hook. I have however noticed that the gore has popped a stitch or two that I didn't notice after receiving the bra, but I'm not sure if that's necessarily from its quality or some strain my sternum is putting on it.
I do have to note that the appearance of this bra is excellent, by itself and under tight clothing. I get almost no gaping lying down and none at all sitting or standing up straight, making this a really good choice for those looking for a sort of no show bra. The straps are wide set with very tiny polka dots that aren't noticeable from a distance and make no difference in its ability to be concealed under clothing. The gore sits quite low, which is really great for my close set breasts, but may offer some disadvantages to those with very soft breast tissue.
The comfort level is okay. The top of the cup on my right side rubs the outer edge of my armpit slightly, leaving a mark for a while after taking the bra off. The underwire also sits a little bit under my IMF, making me think this bra a little bit too shallow for my slightly projected breasts.
I would definitely recommend this bra to those with average/close set, slightly shallow to shallow breasts looking for a good t shirt bra. I probably wouldn't recommend this bra to someone who is very projected, has soft breast tissue, or is wide set.
