This bra is so close to being great for me! It's my first attempt at getting a bra using the size recommended to me at the r/abrathatfits/ calculator, and I'm pretty impressed. The good: The gore tacks flat to my sternum, and is neither to wide nor too narrow. The bra feels sturdy and the band is perfect. The straps get short enough for me (which has been a problem in the past). I've only worn it to try it on, but the fabric feels firm enough to hold its shape all day. Also, the bows are incredibly adorable!
The bad: The gore, while sitting beautifully, is just too high. In fact, and this is just a preference, the whole bra comes up higher than I'd prefer on my chest. Also in the 'purely preference' catagory-- I feel like the bra doesn't quite flatter my shape the way I'd like. I look more bottom heavy than I am in it. The cup size is just slightly too big-- even on my larger breast, I get a bit of gaping at the top. But most noticably, the bra is just too wide for me. The underwire extends an inch or slightly more past my root, and the sides of the cups feel empty, with some resulting wrinkling at the bottom. The tops of the cups run into my armpits, causing discomfort.
In short, it's a lovely bra that would work beautifully on someone with slightly larger and wider breasts.
