Fits

Consistent with the "Capri Floral" I have, this one's band starts out very tight and accentuates back fat. I use an extender making the band one set of hooks larger, and then the back fat is less of an issue. (The 34" band is too big and is still a problem in the back.) Eventually the band relaxes and I stop using the extender.
The straps are also tight, but that's more because they're short and have restricted stretch to them, plus the fact they're only partially adjustable.
Cups are thinly padded overall which I find is kind of warm for Summer. To me, the Safari is better suited for cooler temperatures. (Despite many other bras may have a similar type of padded lining, they seem to breathe better than this does.) The seam in mid-cup does show under a thin shirt, but still a lot less noticeable than a bra covered in lace. The shape of the cups is kind of unusual... Nicely rounded from the side profile, but it rather flattens above the seam (in the area of the Safari pattern), which makes a modified pointed profile at any angle other than a 90° sideways view. On my larger side only, I get a bit of buckling in the bottom of the cup, above the wire (where I guess I could use a little more projection). I'm not spilling into the middle, so I don't mind.
The gore is nice and low...stays out of the way.

Edit: As several months have now gone by, I use these in rotation with all my other bras (I also have a few colors of this style now), I have found now that the bras are 'broken in', the cups have relaxed quite a bit and every one of my Safari's cups buckle, just above the wires. I think my first instinct of it not having enough depth was correct, but it doesn't show under clothing and it's still generally comfortable. However, I do wish the straps were longer, which is a completely different issue.
