Didn't fit

Pros:
-The length of the underwire worked really well for me. It didn't dig into my armpit despite how far back it is. I'm really surprised I actually like how wide this cup is on me. It makes me feel more secure. However, it does create a problem with the straps also being way too wide set for me. By a lot.
-The projection is great for my chest
-The gore height works really well for me which is odd because my Curvy Kate Daydreamer felt too high despite being shorter than this one.
-This band fits very comfortably even without an extender. I wore it all day without issue. I still balloon out as I do with all my bands because I got significant squish but it's not cutting off circulation.
-The bottom of this bra is very accommodating of my slightly FoB rounded chest
-Fabric is SO SOFT, it's really nice.
-Bottom cup comes up high enough to actually encase my nipples

Cons:
-Cup runs big . It fits me quite well on bottom but on top I get a bit of gaping. When my breasts swell it fills out though so it'd be a great period bra.
-Very wide set for me. I think with a minor dart and narrowing the center underwire channels, this will fit better
-My breasts go in two different directions the cups are so wide set. The edges of my breasts are wider than my ribcage when facing straight on. While I do have splayed breasts, this exaggerates the problem
-While the projection is wonderful, it almost comes off pointy coupled with how far set these cups are
-Gaping at the top where the lace is. I'm relatively even in fullness but I can't fill the top of this cup. But it's not uncomfortable and DOES fit well around my larger breast (I'm slightly uneven)
-The cut of the cup leading under the armpit is a little low in my opinion. I need better side support with how I squish but it's not uncomfortable
-The straps are WAY too wide-set for me. If I don't pull them in toward my neck (which gives more pressure and harms the support the straps offer the cup) they fall off my shoulders. I never considered I had narrow shoulders, but I am small in stature. Like, the straps go partially UNDER my armpit, it's just that wide set.
-I feel that this cup doesn't support me as well as I'd like. I think that's less the fault of the cup and more a fault of the wideness of the underwire and the fact I can't get proper lift with the straps due to their placement. On models this strap placement seems less balconette and more standard but on me it's wider than even a balconette strap placement would be.
-The straps are REALLY hard to adjust. I mean it means they'll stay in place but you have to risk hurting your nails to get the buckle slider to even move along the straps.


Fit Neutral/be aware:
-Short straps. They still work for me being only 5 ft tall but I think a taller person would struggle with the strap length.
-The separation of the breasts is quite extreme in this and coupled with the great projection..it can look odd under clothing. I dress very modestly with clothing that hangs off the body and if I didn't also wear a scarf covering my chest, my clothing would very prominently display the shape of my breasts in a way I would not enjoy. I can imagine for those who wear tighter clothing that could help push the breasts together more, this could look quite lovely.

My chest for reference: 28H is standard for me. I have settled borderline pendulous breasts with forward facing nipples. (When supported, my boob fat settles which can cause my upper breast to slightly deflate). Slightly FoB but relatively even in fullness. Slightly lower set breasts, wide roots (breat tissue starts under armpit). Splayed breasts slightly close set (nipped do not point in opposite directions, they are still front facing on my breasts due to the excess breast issue on the outer sides). High central and immediate projection when supported. Very squishy ribcage. Narrow shoulders. Barely 5'1" height.

This bra is by far the most comfortable I've tried in spite of the minor gore and strap issues. I plan to base more of my purchases based on the measurements of this bra given how comfortable it is in spite of the minor issues mentioned.

Offers proper levels of projection I need. Gore will be fine with modification.

Strap separation:
Are too far apart
Top of the cup:
Wrinkles, can't quite fill it
Cups separation:
Too separate for my boobs
