I took Ewa's warning on the website to heart and decided to size up in the band on this bra . . . and I'm glad I did. I would say the bra I received runs about a half-size small in the band. There is some inconsistency however, because the 70C I ordered prior to this ran an entire size small. My recommendation would be to stick with your normal band size if you are on the smaller end of the range and to go up if you are in the middle to larger end of the range.

Unlike some of the other recent CHPs (Ametyst, Cappuccino, etc), the wires on this bra are VERY strong. Even just trying to pull them with my fingers is difficult - they are very thick and have a nice wide casing around them. So this affects the fit in small ways. First, I think it contributes to the feeling of band tightness. Second, the cups feel deeper and narrower than other CHPs because the wires do not move out at all when you fasten the bra (you can see in the side view picture the wires are still straight up). Effectively, this makes the cup feel about a half-size larger than normal. I think can still make it work (the cups mould to you more after wearing), but it should be noted. I might try a 70D if I decide it is still too large after washing.

Also, the straps are very stretchy IMO. I have to tighten them up quite a lot in order to get a normal strap tension. However, they are fully adjustable so it should be okay for most people.

Now on to the famous fabric! I like this bra because sometimes I like to change it up from a sleek, minimalist style and this is anything but that. This bra is all the things! It is antiqued newsprint fabric, with transparent shiny dots, and lace and ruffles and bows and hearts and it's just FUN to wear. BTW, the lace lays flat under shirts.

The matching underwear runs a little tight also as an FYI. I am literally right between size 36 and 38 and sizing up is definitely recommended.
EDIT: I bought a pair of 40s in the briefs just to see and they fit perfectly! Size up!
