This was the first bra I brought after discovering my proper size, I got it preloved from Ebay for less that a fiver, as I wasn't quite convinced by my measurements. I have since grown out of it.
Right from the start there were problems, the band felt the same as my old 34s and was far too loose even on the tightest hook, I don't know if that was because it was second hand, but to be honest I think even brand new I would have needed to go down a couple of sizes. Then there was the back fat... Now I have back bulges with every single bra I own and have ever tried on, but this was really, really bad, not only did it look like someone had stuffed a couple of large sausages down the back of my top, my back upper armpit/lat muffin top was quite astonishing, This was caused by wings/back not being wide enough for me and by the thick elastic on the top and bottom of them digging in to my back, the single layer of mesh fabric in the middle of the wings is not sturdy enough to reign in the resulting bulges. This is a problem I have with a lot of bras regardless of the band size or placement on my back.
My next problem was the shape, although the cups fit they made me very pointy, so much so that I was paranoid that people were staring at my boobs when I went out, and there were definitely some armpit bulges that kept escaping, but again I have yet to find a bra in any size that I don't have that problem with.
Surprisingly given the fit issues this bra was very comfortable, especially as I had been wearing the wrong cup size for the last 20 odd years, I ended up keeping it and wearing it around the house until I grew out of it, although the band obviously was too loose to begin with it didn't seem to stretch out any more, the bra also survived regular machine washing and tumble drying with no obvious ill effects, (not something I recommend). Given the poor fit there is no way I would have paid full price for this bra.
