Didn't fit

When I ordered this bra, I hoped very much that it would fit me well. After all, it was regarded a good bra for shallow breasts with wide roots. The bra itself is pretty enough. Unfortunately, it's for very shallow breasts with very wide roots.

The band: It is comfortable. I can secure on the first set of hooks for the just right tightness (unlike the 30D & 30DD of the model I tried, whose bands may have been stretched out and hence needed to be hooked on the 2nd set of hooks). The 3 hooks per column is fantastic. The side boning is wonderful.

The straps: Very wide. Feels as if it's cutting into my chest at times, though if I place it just where my pecs meet the shoulders, it feels comfortable enough since it actually pushes the migrated breast tissue toward the breast initially.

Cups: The problem seems to lie with the cup design itself. The center gore at the bottom is too wide, the cups too wide as well, and the underwire too long.
If the gore lies against my sternum, the underwires sit an inch beneath the bottom of my breasts and an inch beyond the side of my breasts. The underwire seems both too wide and long for my breasts, and the cup design on the side cuts into my arm pits so that I can't raise the cups. Worse yet, eventually, the bra cup design pushes some tissues around my armpits to my back rather than enclosing them within the rather wide cups themselves. Moreover, if I do try to make the underwire sit just beneath my breast tissue at the bottom, the center gore sits atop my breasts instead of the sternum. The center gore at the top of the bra itself might fit my dimensions, but the gore widens significantly at the bottom. YET, all at the same time, I get a very slight quad-boob effect at the top because the cups are wide but very shallow. When I lean over slightly (as you can see in the pictures), the quad boob effect becomes more pronounced.

So, it's just not the right fit. Sadly.

Lastly, although the bra is named a "padded bra," it's more like a spacer bra. There is actually no padding, just a foaminess to the cup.
