- Center gore comfort:
- Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too high
- Strap separation:
- Not a problem

EDIT: im looking at selling this, as its unwearable due to shape and gore issues. i dont think its right for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Bought this from a Facebook swap group with the knowledge that the purple version runs small. The previous owner says she wore it once or twice, so its basically still completely new. Ive been after a 34FF for a while, after i tried on a 32FF with an extender and found it looked pretty good. This bra still has issues that bother me, but its overall probably the best fit I've found so far on my fitting journey. Hopefully i can find a bra similar, but without the cons of Andorra.
**this purple color is gorgeous! very deep plum, i love it.
**the band feels snug but not painful.
**i think the wires are finally the right width.
**The stretch lace is forgiving of my different sized breasts, and i experience no quad boob or gaping- yay!
**the gore is HORRID. its not as bad as Cleos, where when i bend or sit it feels like I'm being impaled, but the top half of the gore presses so hard into me that i have a really deep indent and i cant stand to actually wear it for more than a few minutes because of it. maybe it will soften up with time and wear?
**The "sling" inside the up does its job on the larger left side, but on the smaller right side, it leaves a weird indent in the side of my breast. i have to tighten the strap more on that side, and i've seen other reviews that say tightening the straps too much will pull on the sling and do this. it seems like a crappy design feature that you cant have the straps where the need to be to even out breast sizes, and its not as though i am pulling the strap very tight- its a smidgen more.
**the lace at the bottom of the band rolls, which wont be terrible as long as it rolls out and not under. if it rolls under, i imagine painful pinching will occur. the lace at the top of the cups rolls a little here and there too, probably because it's elastic. Not a deal breaker for me, but may be for others.
**the shape is more "retro". Not hugely pointed, but not really something i think i like. It's very similar to my naked shape and makes me uncomfortable. On my smaller side its more extreme. If i had no other choice, i might get used to it, but id prefer to find something rounder.
**The horizontal seams show through my lightweight t shirts, and the full cup style means i cant wear this with even a slight v-neck. this is nitpicky, but worth mentioning.
**I dont feel very supported in this. Sitting still, i feel lifted, but moving around not so much. i agree with other reviews that i wouldn't want to wear this on a day i might need to catch a bus!
This bra is not owned any more
