This bra is called 'Sheer Enough.' The name could not be more appropriate.

#1: Overall very stretchy...good for mild weight gain/loss, or monthly fluctuations.
#2: Very thin, delicate lace across the cups...not sure how durable it will be long-term. The lace will show under a tight top, but usually provides enough tension to camophlage nipples. Cups are narrow and deep; more supportive than I expected. Doesn't have a Lot of Lift, but sufficient, with a 'comfortable' rounded shape. The top of the single layer cups has an elasticized edge; somewhat closed, but handled center closeness well enough, except for mild quadding near the gore. No gaping whatsoever.
#3: Before my very minor alteration, the gore was just over an inch wide at the top and 3" tall; it's base is only 1.75" wide and narrower than most. (I hand-stitched the top as closely together as possible, without deconstructing the gore, which reduced the width from 1 1/8" to 7/8".) Interestingly, before my little alteration it didn't tack, but now it tacks while standing but then falls away 1/2" when leaning forward.
#4: The wires are narrow and flexible. Stretches easily with the band and likewise will distort if stretched 'too far'. But they tuck into my IMF nicely.
#5: Single layer band...seems like it might stretch out quickly, but it's very comfortable. Back fat is minimized because of the lace across the top, which also has a strip of stretch silicone.
#6: The wide & flocked straps are fully adjustable, but not overly stretchy. (The band is way more stretchy than the straps.) Almost centered above the apex of the cups and kicked in, in the back. No slippage here.

Bottom line: this is a perfect Summertime bra for those hot sweltering days! Lightweight, but supportive. Shapes without binding; moves with you. Even though cups are sheer, I doubt there'd be a terrible problem of nipple show-through, especially in the Summer heat. But if it really bothers you, there's always nipple concealers...

Quick update: I end up fluctuating between this fitting and not fitting, depending on how full I happen to be when I wear it. The combination of the tall-for-me gore and the cup's elastic binding sometimes causes this to quad on my close-set/center closeness. Sometimes it fits fine and I can tolerate the gore, other times it cuts in too much.
