I think the cup fit would be okay if you get the correct cup/band size. The side wires reach a bit farther than I'd like into the armpits. The bra itself is very supportive and the smoothing/lightly padded cups are a good, rounded shape, not weirdly angled like some lower end bras can do.
I've had this bra now for over a year, regular wear and and washing in the washing machine (hang dry). Still in good shape and hasn't stretched out. The 38 band is a firm 38 (to me), and I feel pretty supported in it. The gore doesn't come close to tacking on me, and my boobs sort of meet in the middle over it, with a some quad oozing. It's a touch wide on me and I have gaping where the strap meets the cup about the size of a goofball, but you mostly can't see it under a tank top. You can see see the sides ...of the bra, however and might dig into armpits, but doesn't for me. The side boning however bends with my fat and gets uncomfortable towards the end of the day.
Edit: I am realizing that what I thought was a non stretched out band was the fact that the cup size was too small and pulling the band tight. Now that I've migrated a bit, I can only really wear them for a little while washing my other bras. They are much wider than I originally thought, about 3 finger's width from my root.
