Alright, now that I've had a chance to wear this bralette a couple times, plus make one small change, I'm confident in my assessment of it. My size on paper is 26FF, and my shape is narrow and tall roots, with evenly full, firm tissue.

When I received this bralette, I was surprised at how small the band looked when I took it out of the box (we'll get to that). The colour is more of a turquoise as opposed to a true green (the pics on my bedspread are the most accurate for colour). We'll start with the pros. It is made of extremely soft materials (lace, mesh, elastics), it fits me well enough (although the cups are just on the verge of being too small), and is very supportive.

Cons: there were lots of loose threads and one or two random small chunks of the mesh, like trimmings, that were poking out of the bra when I received it. Most of the threads and mesh weren't actually attached, and were able to be freely pulled out of the seams. Next, being a pullover style, it's actually quite snug to get over my shoulders, but it fits well enough once it's in the proper place. I just need to be mindful when taking it on and off. The cups are on the edge of being too small. I get very slight quadboob on my larger side, plus my boobs are pushed together when wearing it, as it doesn't provide any sort of separation. Lastly, the tag was actually a bit itchy when I first got it, but I used my seam ripper to gently remove it. Now the band is much softer and more comfortable to wear.

MORE: The letters they use for sizing are slightly confusing, IMO. I got a Petite, and on the tag it says from top to bottom: P, TP, XP. But there is also an XS size, which would also probably list TP and XP on the sizing tag. Speaking of sizing, the bralette fits me pretty well. I'd say it probably can fit up to a 28 band, but I'd be wary depending on the width of your shoulders. As a 26FF, sister size 28F, this bralette is on the verge of being too small in the cups. It's also quite minimizing, which contributes to feeling well-supported, for better or for worse. The lace on the band extends below the elastic, giving it a sweet scalloped edge. It's extremely soft and doesn't irritate my skin, but it does ride up at the front if anyone cares about that. The cups are made up of three strips of lace running horizontally, so there is a lace edge running along the lower third of my boobs, and another lace edge running just above the apex of my boobs in the upper third. I'm sure this design contributes to the shape and support, but this can create lines under clothing (just another thing to be mindful of).

TL;DR: Very soft, supportive, minimizing bralette with a few minor quality control issues; you may have issues getting on and off if you have wide shoulders.

    I'm about a 26G and I was thinking about trying a Cosabella bralette. It's good to know it actually works for a 26 band!

    I love this bralette to sleep in!
    I bought size S which is for 32-34 bands so its not as snug fitting and I dont spill over the top (I'm a 30FF or G uk). I don't find it offers enough support even for lounging for my comfort level tho. I agree it's pretty challenging to get on and off, thus why I didn't return for an XS. But overnight sleeping on my back, it prevents the girls to go too far sideways and the colorful lace looks pretty cute too.

    Thanks for the excellent review! I especially appreciate the pictures. I've been wondering about the version of this bralette aimed at fuller busts.
