Holy cow this is a tight band!!! (as many others have said). Also as many others have said, there is a cup flaring issue that tends to happen on one side.
Whatever it is, the weird cup edge is blatantly obvious under shirts; see my pic in the yellow t-shirt. As much as I tried to rationalize keeping this bra, I saw that picture and decided I'm not going to walk around in public like that.
Unfortunately, for those reasons, this bra has to go back...which is a huge shame because it really should be the perfect bra. I do love that the cups don't have all that heavy padding in them... the foam is relatively thin, flexible, and comfortable. It's too bad.
*** NOTE per SOPHISTICATED PAIR website:
"Neve suffered from defects during its initial run where the cup would crease outward near the center; however, I have been assured that the problem has been rectified."
** EDIT **
I've ordered a 32D. I liked this bra so much that I wasn't ready to write it off yet. I thought more about the cup curling and realized that the curl was happening on my larger side, and a few other reviewers said the same thing. I checked out the cup depth of bras that fit me well, like my 28E - Cleo » Jude (5846) and my 30D - Cleo » Jo (5696) , and the depth on those (7.3" and 7.0", respectively) is at least 1" more than this Neve which measures only 6" deep. I then looked up the one 32D Neve on Bratabase and it seems to be more on par with my Jude and Jo, so I'm giving that size a try. Will post updated review when I receive the replacement.
** EDIT II **
