I have so many of this style bra, although this one in particular is my most recent one from last summer. I have a few others still, but they've honestly stretched out too much. It's been my go to bra and the only one that La Senza carries that fits. Or used to. I'm running into the bands bring too stretchy and now that I'm fairly firmly into 30 bands for the most part, the bands of the current ones are too loose and stretchy. Supposedly they're fixing this with newer models coming out.
To be honest, this bra gives me great shape, and with a sufficiently low enough top, I have pretty good cleavage...cakes on a plate I think. I'll have to go back and add pics for that. I do find that it slips a little bit, but I'm not sure if it's projection and depth issue or slightly loose band. Or both. And the straps are usually pretty tight. Not fully adjustable. They tend to slip on occasion. Although I haven't added measurements yet, I did measure the width one day recently, and it's surprisingly narrow...like 4.8-5" wide!
My shape is shortish narrow roots with soft and malleable tissue that's also pendulous, and even to fob center full and somewhat close set breasts.
Now, I know that you're all probably saying, this is a 32D...isn't it a bit small for you? Aren't you wearing more 30E/F 32DD/E bras? Well, the answer is sort of. I have a tiny amount of spillage with the D and a little gapping with the DD. And for some reason, the wires and band seem to be better on the D. This is probably going to skew my reference size but I've got two 30F bras on the way (squee!) so that will help with my overall experience and all that.
I have to say that I really do love all of the So Free Lightly Lined Balconettes I've owned, but I so wish that they would extend this line to include 30 bands. My only hope right now is if they really have tightened up the bands and stretchiness and if the unlined version will be out again this summer, as the bands were better with that one.
