- Center gore comfort:
- Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too low
- Strap separation:
- Not a problem
- Top of the cup:
- Cuts into breast tissue (quad boob effect)
- Band fit:
- The back of the bra is not at the same level as the front (rides up)

Wow the band runs small on this bra! I measure 26.5" underbust so an overly snug 30 band doesn't bother me but if you measure more than 28", I would bump up to a 32 band in this bra. The design of the bra is such that the back is higher than the front no matter what. It's not riding up because it's too snug for that but I question the level of support it provides with the back curving up higher than the front.
A review on the figleaves site had mentioned the cheap looking lace on this bra. I disagree, it's lovely and overall the quality of materials is very good. And this purple color is much better in person, online it looked too reddish.
The apex is very high on the cup, so this might be a better choice for full on bottom breasts like mine. The wires are pretty narrow and the cup fabric is deep and stretchy, this is not a bra for wide-rooted shallow girls but works for me.
The cups push all the breast tissue to the front and center, very forward pointing with smooth sides.
The skinny elastic band at the top of the already stretchy lace panel seems unnecessary and creates a slight quadboob on my larger side. On full on top breasts, I imagine this would be problematic.
When wearing just the bra, I thought it gave a very pointy shape. But under clothes it's a rounded natural shape.
I liked the fit and comfort of this bra until I wore it all day and my sternum was so bruised I couldn't wear an underwire bra at all the next day. I don't know if this is due to wires that are too high or low but I think I need to bend them.
ETA: I just bought 2 more of these in 30FF because my breasts seem to have inflated/grown and I am crazy quadboobing.
