The bra seems sturdy. It is very attractive and well-made. The bra has fully adjustable straps; they are relatively wide and soft but not padded. It also has three-panel cups and light padding. In this size, the bra has three columns of four hook and eye closures.
The fit is clearly not great for me. I did not realize it would plunge so low when I ordered it. My boobs don't quite fall out of the top, but they get close when I bend over. I also have a quad boob problem that is most pronounced on the larger side.
The band runs on the tight side -- it is tighter than the other two Parfait by Affinitas bras I tried. It seems more like a tight 34. The band size works fairly well, and the center gore almost tacks. I think it would tack if the cups fit a bit better and I didn't have the quad boob problem.
The cups are not a very good fit -- and run a bit small -- but I'm not sure it would help to go up in cup size. The shape just may not work very well for me. I would need 2-4 more inches in cup depth.
The straps are certainly wide set, but not quite as much as the other two bras I tried in this brand. I did have to adjust them up a considerable amount, which was strange -- I usually need to adjust straps as low as they will go. Also, it helps that the straps are wide and soft -- they didn't cause me to have immediate shoulder pain when I tried on the bra.
