I find this bra very comfortable. I prefer a wide cup for my boobs as I think they are wide, although this bra has a bit of wrinkling/emptiness at the top of the sides. This tends to happen on bras that are otherwise a good cup width for me. If the bra was narrower on the cups, I imagine it would put my boobs together more, creating overspill at the front. The cups do seem a little big for me, so perhaps if I go down a back size to a 36, the cups will seem a better fit. However they feel very supportive and I'd much prefer these cups to cups too small.
The back size is big. I'm usually a 36, sometimes 38, but this is quite loose, so worth going down a back size. The band feels comfortable and is soft enough otherwise. The back looks quite stretchy so I'm not sure it would last too long until it loses elasticity.
The quality and looks seems ok. The inner cups are soft to the touch and thinly padded with a sort of thin foam. The straps feel comfortable and smooth. It looks slightly dowdy, but the lace top of the cups distracts from that. Perhaps the black version would look a little prettier. It looks good under clothes. Considering the lace cups I expected it to show a fair bit under clothes, but I can actually honestly say this is my favourite bra for under clothes. No overspill, no low cup topline showing too much wobbly boob, no overturned or thick top of the cup showing. Yes there's the lace, but this is very thin and delicate and curves towards the chest. It looks thicker on the pictures but is very thin lace.
Overall I'm very pleased with the look, feel and comfort of this bra and can't wait to try it in a different size. Quality I'll edit after a month or so of wear. It's a keeper though.
