My experience with "convertible" bras has always been that in their efforts to work well in multiple styles, they work great in none. This bra is another testament to that rule. While the colourway is fun and sporty, giving the bra a cool appearance, and the band fits great (29" ribcage, I found it TTS compared to Panache & Cleo), I had fit issues and RETURNED.
This bra was not meant for my breast shape. It is too east-west for me and did not support me in the middle, making it uncomfortable and poorly resistant to my bounce (I'd be better off with my old ratty cotton nylon sports bras that I've had for 6 years). I do not recommend this bra for someone with close set or projected breasts. It also digs into the top of my breast a little(not a huge deal, but confirms for me that this is a shape mismatch, not a problem of cup being too big). Meanwhile, the straps are too long on their tightest setting. The sides of the cups come up too high for me, digging into my underarm area, making this bra uncomfortable even for loungewear, and negating the possibility of shortening the straps. I also have an odd fit issue with the bottom of the cup.
The inner semi-molded layer folds over at the bottom of the cup, and this continues around the sides of the band. It is uncomfortable. I think it's because I don't fill the outer bottom area of the cup, and this bra wants boobs that are more shallow or FOB. If you prefer a wider gore (i.e. don't have close-set breasts) and aren't worried about straps being too long, you might like this bra. The fold mostly disappears when I convert to racerback, but I find the racerback extremely uncomfortable, as it causes the sides of the cup to dig in even further, and puts too much pressure on my shoulders, even with straps loosened.
This bra was a big fat fail for me. I'm hesitant to try the underwire version because of this bad experience, and because TONS of women on amazon reviews report the underwire poking through within the first few months of use with that one. I tried Wacoal Contour which also has underwire at Dillards in 32G US and it was WAY better than this. Although I wish they made it in 30H, I may get it.
