Because this is meant to be a strapless/multi-way bra, it has a very firm band compared to other Aerie bras in this size. It definitely fits more like a 32DD than a 34D, which is good for me. This is the only bra I own that curves in significantly at the top of the cup, and it's because that curve just so happens to match my shape. I'm not sure if other ladies with shallow and/or full-on-top breasts would be as lucky. It gives a more pointy look than many molded cups, but not quite in a bullet bra way. Despite the snakeskin lace, it doesn't show through ... anything, making it my current go-to bra for thin/light shirts. I'm not sure how long it will hold up, though, as I'm starting to see some fraying of the underwire channels after only a few wears.
Edit: I bumped quality and comfort down to 'poor' because not long after I initially wrote this review, one of the loops that holds the straps broke (and I don't put much tension on the straps). The gel that gives the band extra grip started leaving welts on my skin and the band stretched significantly. It's a shame, because this bra worked well for me fit-wise. Also, I have not found other Aerie bras to be this poorly made and none of my other bras (regardless of brand) are showing much wear at all.
