I am so excited to have FINALLY found a bra that fits me. My breasts are tall rooted and slightly wide, and possibly shallow (FOB) with some immediate projection. Add to that pretty close-set and slightly splayed. Most bras end up being either just a smidge too narrow for me, or far, far too wide. Summer is still bordering on too narrow, but it *just* makes the cut. It's comfortable, it looks great, and amazingly it doesn't gape. I think I can attribute the last point to the fact that the padding gradually increases around the outside bottom of the cup where I tend to have less breast tissue. It feels about half an inch thick there, and tapers off toward the center and upper sections of the bra.
My one concern is the single hook 'gate' closure. The bra feels completely stable when I wear it, but I do wonder how long the band's lifespan will be with all the tension being distributed across such a small area. I wish the fabric lining the back of the clasps extended a little farther too- I'm wearing it on the loosest setting, and the edge of the clasp end of the band is only barely shielding my skin from the tip of the last hook. I could feel it poking once or twice over the course of the day, it was a pretty minor nuisance.
