This bra is extremely pretty and still not too fancy for everyday wear, dressing up or using it casually, your choice. It's suitable for both. Unfortunately it didn't fit me, but this is actually my fault. I didn't know my size and I still struggle to get the right fit when I do bra shopping. I'm sure that if I would've gotten it in the right size it would be super supportive and comfortable. The fabric is really soft but still strong, it gives you a nice round and natural shape. It's not a t-shirt bra but it definitely doesn't show any seams and the embroidery didn't show ... through on a tight top for me. The color did of course, it's a color splash! =)
I would definitely say it's generous in the band. It didn't ride up in the back, it was still a horizontal line across my back but all of my five fingers could fit underneath without having to squeeze them in(very much ''give'' in this band). Oh, and that's on the loosest hook. In the Freya Active underwired bra I can hardly do it up on the loosest hook(to give you a reference) in a 28'' band.
I'm short(5 feet/152 cm tall), even on the shortest length the straps are way too long(it's a half-strap design), I wouldn't even have to ''pick it up'' first to brush it off my shoulder, it sits higher up than my shoulder height to begin with. That wasn't a factor for me to return it(I'm returning it), my mom knows how to sew and she helps me alter this when needed. I just wanted to make shorter ladies aware of that. If you're able to get it in your size and the strap issue isn't an issue to you, I highly recommend it to you if you like the look of this bra =)
To get this bra to work for me I probably would've needed a size 26f, bear in mind, the band of this bra runs big.
