I've read many reviews that say that this bra is better suited to those with wide-set breasts, and they weren't wrong, but it wasn't so bad for my close-set breasts due to the padding in the cups.
The material on this thing is weird. The band isn't very elastic, for all that it doesn't stretch much. It's a little on the tight side for a 30, which is fine for me, but reviews say that it stretches out quickly. I can see this happening. Although it appeared to hook fine on the second hook, it didn't feel at all supportive. The tightest hook might have been more supportive, but ... I had already decided not to keep it at that point and didn't want to stretch out the band too much.
The cups themselves are quite shallow, due to the padding in the cups. The padding is located on the bottom-outside portions of the cup, which worked great for me, since that's where I have the least fullness. However, the top/inner edges of the cup curved in a little too sharply for my shape, and I had the tiniest bit of quadboob. I found that the cups fit better when worn as a racerback/halter top. The cups no longer cut in then. That's not the way I like to wear bras though, so it wasn't much of a solution.
The gore didn't quite tack either. The top part of the gore floated just a tad, and wasn't really fixed when the bra was worn as a halter top. I think this may be due to a combination of close-set breasts with a slightly-too-shallow cup. Possible going up a cup would have solved the fit issues in the cups, but it wouldn't have solved the other problems I had with this bra.
I didn't realize why the colorways had two descriptions (xx/xx) until I received mine, when I was faced with unexpected leopard print. Turns out the first color is for the front and the second color is for the back. This feels super obvious in hindsight. I really don't like leopard print, even if it's not something I'll see when wearing it. I'll still know it's there.
The straps on the bra are completely removable for racerback or halter top conversion. It's not a suitable bra for strapless wear though. It's fully adjustable and was quite pretty, as it had a bit of a shine to it.
If I had encountered this bra earlier in my ABTF journey, I probably would have kept it, as I have other bras that fit similarly. But I have bras that fit, and now I'm pickier about fit because I can, and I no longer like molded bras very much. Perhaps if I come across it with a better price and colorway, I'll consider it again.

Close-set, inner fullness, wide root, tall root, functionally FoB, shallow, narrow shoulders.
This bra fits me pretty well, and feels wonderfully constructed. It's practically invisible under clothing because of the super sleek edges, and I was all set and ready to use it as one of my everyday bras - until I tested it out by wearing it around the house for an hour or so and concluded the bra wanted to murder me. The top of the cup, where it meets the strap, is incredibly inflexible and sharp, and dug painfully into my Tail of Spence. The skin was red and irritated even after a short while; I shudder to think of how bad it might have been if I'd worn it for a full day.
This bra may work wonderfully for someone with a different build, but I'm going to be returning it.
(I'm 0 for 3 as far as b.tempt'd goes. I think this brand might not be for me...)

This is a really smooth t-shirt bra. Very comfy as well.
I have short roots and get a bit of gapping in the top part if I move my arms forwards but other than that is fits fine.
I love that it has adjustable straps, great bra for summer shirts!

I LOVE the shape this bra gives me and it's incredibly comfortable. The band is very stretchy so I have to wear it on the tightest hooks to keep it from riding up, but so long as I do that it's okay. It's seamless so it gives a nice smooth shape, even under tight fitting shirts. The straps are removable as well, so it can be converted to a racerback by crossing them in the back.

This is a good bra. I quadboob just a little bit in it though. It also may be a bit shallow in the bottom of the cups.

I wasn't overly interested in the looks of this bra but I needed a lighter colored plunge pushup in a small band size so decided to try this. Kind of strange fabric, it seems to be made of neoprene (aka wetsuit fabric)... this is firm fabric and doesn't allow a lot of give in the band. Also, the band is true to size. I measure for a 28 band size (26.5" ribcage) and accordingly, I have to wear this bra (size 30D) on the middle hook instead of the loosest.
Love the colors though. The straps are very narrow (3/8") which I don't prefer in ... any bra; I like at least 1/2" and preferably 5/8" because I find them more comfortable. The scallops along the top cup edges are kind of odd, but they are obviously an attempt at adding interest and they don't seem to show through clothes. This bra has bump pads integrated into the bottoms of the cups which give a definite cleavage boost and may cause boobs to fall towards the center if they are soft, so watch for that. Overall a comfortable bra with decent shaping.

I've had this bra about two months. After washing it the first time in the washing machine the decorative trim kinda started to come off at the bottom or the gore, couple stitches and a cute button fixed this easily. Very comfortable bra though

I have small, shallow, wide boobs. I tried this bra on a whim (plunge /and/ a pushup?), and was so surprised when it actually fit.
This is a very plain bra. It's moulded and made of a very smooth material, so it makes a fantastic t-shirt bra. The fabric is soft, stretchy, and isn't itchy anywhere. The straps fully adjust, and can be converted to halter and racerback style.
The pushup pad in the bottom of the bra is substantial, though perhaps not quite as big as the Pour Moi Amour Padded (PM-1500) that I tried on a while back.
The color leaves ... something to be desired (not a fan of the bright salmon), and the scalloping on the inside edge of the cups is a little goofy.
I only had one major complaint about this bra: where the straps meet the top of the cups is incredibly pokey/irritating. Some of it went away after washing a couple of times. The rest was softened after I took a rough nail file to the pokey edge. Having taken care of that, though, I don't really have any complaints about this bra.
My underbust measures 26.5" supertight and 28" snug; I wear this bra comfortably on the tightest hook. I hope the band doesn't stretch out too much over time.
