The center gore doesn't lay flat but it's still much closer than the others I've tried and it's not a problem for me, so I marked it as fits.

It fits! The center gore is about an inch away from my sternum, but that's not a deal breaker. I was worried that the cups would be too wide, but it's totally fine, and nothing is stabbing me under the arm. This thing is incredibly supportive and well-made. Nothing is pinching or pulling or bruising or chafing. There's a lot of raised decorative stuff on the straps and the tops of the cups, but it doesn't show through a t-shirt and neither do the seams. It's squishing my boobs down a little and pushing them to the sides a bit (almost into my arms) rather than to the front, a little more than they'd like to be squished, but not enough to hurt, so even though a little more projection and a little less width would be nice, this is honestly perfectly fine. (They do hurt a bit when I take it off, but not while I'm wearing it.) I'd like it if the gore tacked, but I'm shocked at how much coverage I'm getting with this bra. I'd sort of resigned myself to buying full coverage bras that only covered half of my boobs. But nope. This is secure, sturdy, and pretty comfortable. And I'm not popping out anywhere! The straps slip a little bit because my shoulders and neck started to hurt when I tightened them, but that's fine. And my nipples don't show through this fabric. The band under the wire is comfortable and not digging in or chafing. The lace on the cups themselves is slightly itchy, but I mostly don't notice it and I think it'll soften with use. Hopefully the creaking and squeaking will ease with use, too.
Overall, I'm very happy. I think this is a good option for top-full, projected, pendulous breasts, even close-set, narrower breasts. Might work for east-west breasts, though, considering how it seems to want to go out toward the sides.
