Fits well, except when I 'slouch'.

I'm not sure what to make of this Elise. By the measurements it fits well, and indeed it does (after 'swoop & scoop', of course) but only as long as I'm standing up straight, or if I bend at the hips so that my back stays straight. But the moment I bend from the waist or roll my shoulders, I start to get the gaping; especially on my smaller side. The same thing happened to me on the Wacoal Lace Affair 32DDD, which supposedly fit me, but has a shallower cup design. I have wide enough shoulders so the straps are not too far apart for me... so I don't think that's the problem. The Elise is very similar in design to the Panache Odette, which I do really well in. So I don't understand why this one gapes so easily. Maybe it is simply a matter of being a little more open, where I am functionally FoB.
The color of this bra is called 'Praline', which makes me think of almonds and caramelized sugar. But seriously, this color should have been called 'Milk Chocolate'; minor point for sure, but I was disappointed in the color.
The band fit true to size, the ballet back helps minimize back fat. The cup fits my shape (except for detail listed above), The wires aren't too long or too short, etc., etc.. I guess the only thing I don't really care for is the band sewn across the top of the cup. It is thicker than I thought it would be and it will show under snug tops.
This bra is not owned any more
