- Not a problem

- Wrinkles, can't quite fill it

- The back of the bra is not at the same level as the front (rides up)

First the good: FINALLY a bra with narrow enough wires, strap placement that's not trying to saw off my arms, and a narrow enough gore. It also has nice, tall wings so everything stays in place and looks smooth and yet somehow doesn't jab me in the armpit.
As far as the band sizing, I originally planned on ordering a 70 but after discussing with Anna at Comexim and reading a few reviews that the bands run tight, opted for a 75. The band measured in at 33 inches fully stretched, so it does appear to run small. Right now however I'm vacillating between 32 bands (that ride up a bit) and 30s that barely close or require an extender, so maybe a 70 that runs a bit small would be ideal. I don't know; still undecided here. Even though the band only has two rows of hooks (3 columns), wearing it on the middle or tightest closure feels comfortably firm and secure (I think due to the wings).
I get a ton of gaping and some empty space at the top of the cups, unfortunately. It isn't visible under a tight shirt but it means it isn't as supportive as it should be and I don't get va-voom cleavage you'd expect from a plunge. Even though the depth at the apex is perfect, I think I need to size down one to two cup sizes in any plunge style bra to make them work with my shape and soft tissue. The cups have a soft cotton lining and are lightly padded/lined (similar to an EM, possibly a bit less padded).
My only issue with this bra (other than sizing) is the straps. They are perfect as far as the width setting but the width of the strap itself is narrower than EM or Panache straps, so I'm curious as to how comfortable that would be for all day wear.
This bra is not owned any more
