I scored this for a great price from Amazon. Unfortunately, this is all wrong for my shape. It's such a beautiful bra, so I was greatly saddened by it.
The wires are too narrow, the cup too projected and closed on top for me. The band was too loose (I could easily hook on the tightest) and the straps could not adjust short enough for me. I'd heard that Simone Perele bras ran narrow, but I hoped anyway. Nope.
The silver embroidery is more of a dark gray, but I think it rather depends on the lighting. In my camera flashes, it did appear a shiny silver. The cup is a stretchy mesh lace, and it looks decently sturdy. I was afraid that it would be super delicate, but no, it's quite well constructed. The flower on the straps are also sturdier than they look.
I think that if I had more projection, I could alter the bra (bend the wires, remove the elastic across the top) and force the stretchy cup to work for me, but I just don't.
Update: I did bend the wires, and it fits better now, but I still get wrinkles at the top of the cup.
