This bra is designed with padding that is thickest at the bottom of the cup and this layer gets thinner as it goes up. In theory this is intended to give a push-up effect without being too obvious, unfortunately it mainly just sacrifices the space available in the cup for the breast tissue. When I bought it from a no-returns and no-exchanges seller I hadn't figured out my correct size range yet, but I'm sure that this bra will fit someone perfectly - that someone just isn't me.
I got this bra because it was the best cup fit I may have ever found. So then I ordered two more online in two more colors. However, the band was definitely too large, and the straps didn't quite tighten down enough. So, it was good, but not great. I have since altered the band, so that it is now approximately a 30DD, and I took ~1 inch off of both straps. Now, it's nearly perfect!
Yes, I would tell a friend about this bra. I like the shape of the bra, and I honestly find it comfortable even though the gore doesn't quite tack. The underwires are slightly below the root of my breast, but I do not find that they dig. My only complaint is that the center of the band does somewhat creep up in the middle of my back.
