First off, let me say that I find the aesthetics of this bra beautiful. It's subtle and understated, but it's an extremely pretty bra in the white.
The band is pretty stretchy. I'm generally a 28/30, but I definitely needed the 28 here. I wore it with an extender for the first few wears, but afterwards it was perfect. However, I do find that it has stretched out a bit faster than my Freya or Fantasie bras tend to. The quality of the materials seems a tad lower than these, more on par with Cleo.
The cups provide great uplift, but the upper lace section folds back fairly sharply and is not at all stretchy. This works well for my shape, and it provides great support and anti-bounce. But there is a little bit of cutting in on my bigger side, so this wouldn't work for anyone with more upper fullness than I have.
One complaint -- the seams on this thing are pretty darn prominent under clothes. It's a versatile bra that works under many things, but thin knits are definitely not in that category.
