I'm a 30G and this bra fit me like a glove in my size. It's true to size in that the band feels tight but not too tight and the cups are perfect. One of things I love about this bra is that it's 60% cotton. I also love how supportive it is. This is a very industrial bra. It's not exactly pretty and won't cause explosions in the bedroom but it's the kind of bra you'd want to wear if you have a ton of errands to run, including laundry and possibly moving and heavy lifting. The sheer part of the bra is a little stiff but ...it's perfect and lies flat against my breasts. The shape it gives my breasts is very pointy, like a torpedo, and I generally prefer a rounder shape. But once you put a shirt or blouse on, it's completely different. There is absolutely no pointy shape and in fact, it has a very slimming effect. I look leaner and more supported in this bra and it's quickly become my favourite, especially for business meetings and such. This bra is extremely comfortable in that there was no digging whatsoever by any wires. The straps did not dig into my shoulders and the band gripped my ribcage without causing me to suffocate. If you have soft breasts then this could be the perfect bra. I often get this gap at the top of the cup because I'm not full on top. However, with this bra, that problem does not exist at all. It really feels like the bra was tailored to my breasts. I love this bra and highly recommend it. I bought two more, especially with the price being so phenomenal at brastop.com. It's worth every penny!
Note: the black version of this bra runs a tiny bit tighter both in band and cup. It wasn't enough for me to go up a size but if you're on the edge of a band or cup, then you may want to go up in size if buying the black version. Read more 238 more words
As a woman with a larger bust I cannot praise these bras enough. It is such a shame that Best Form discontinued them.. The reason this bra is so great is because it addresses an issue with larger busts that other bra manufacturers dont seem to be aware of or care to address. This bra has deeper cups. The deeper cup draws the breasts out & gives a far more svelte appearance when people are looking at you from the front. So instead squashing your breasts down and out to the sides with badly shaped cups & thus spreading them across your upper arms which makes your boobs look ...HUGE and makes you look like a 'big bertha', the Best Form Rebeccas deep cups make you look slimmer. I have huge boobs & a tiny waist and small back, this bra is great for that as it keeps me looking slightly more in proportion. by providing deeper cups so your boobs arent squashed out to the sides. I think alot of thought went into this bra when they created it. Its such a shame other manufacturers dont give it as much thought when making bras for larger busts. Read more 87 more words
Super cute style, but my God those underwire, it's like they were designed to hold a lightbulb. Clearly designed for top heavy tata's as the cup wrinkles like crazy on the top. Band fits snugly, gore is flat if not a little pokey. Would be great in a smaller cup size, maybe with wider underwire.
I tried this bra in 40HH in June 2010, it did not fit me at all. The wires were too narrow and the band was too wide. I could not fill out the cup due to an orange-in-a-glass phenomenon and the cup being too big overall.
What I found curious was the odd angle the cup was sewed on to the band. I did not know it then, but today I know the brand has relatively narrow wires. The angle was done to prevent the wires from getting bent out of shape. Very good idea, but this construction made the band longer than average.
I also did not like the fabric of the cups. Since it has a high cotton content, I expected it to be great for summer. I was dissappointed in the stiff and heavy fabric that made it more suitable for cold winter months.

My boobs don't fill this cup up, there's a lot of empty space right in the middle of the bra, at the pointy bit, ergo the awful wrinkling. My boobs are shallow and wide, so avoid this bra if you're of similar build to me.
