This bra sees like a nice bra but it originally didn't fit very well. The cups were too separated for me and the band was too large. I fixed the band by sewing a non stretch patch into both sides of the band and sewed the gore so that it is smaller and now this bra is amazing! My only issue is that the "customized lift" does not take into account that cup size is relative to band size. There was not much push up in the bra at all which is disappointing because push up bras are harder to find in this size. In general though I would say the bra was good quality and ran true to size.
It felt right when I tried it on in the store, but after wearing it out a few hours I could tell it was definitely too small in the cup. It's really hard for me to get the quadboob effect even in bras that are way too small, but I was getting it a little with this one. It has this weird little bit of padding that's a very narrow line in the bottom of the cup (could this be the 'customized lift? who knows) that I suspect may have been taking up space that I needed (I'm somewhere between even and full on bottom). I also found that I was coming out a bit on the sides (due to the too-small cup). The band is mostly fine, maybe a tad big, but nothing super awful.
I loved this bra until my boobs grew https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> The straps are velvet and it's a beautiful red colour. The cups are soft so you can wear it under fitted t-shirts but it's also good for more formal wear. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> No padding
This was the first bra I went out and bought once I got my real size. It's simple and I'm very glad it came in nude! The band is still much too loose and is very stretchy and I wish the wires continued a little bit more in the center gore area. Otherwise this bra fits very well. I might consider taking in the band length if I muster up enough courage to cut an expensive bra.
This bra gapes just a little bit at the top of the cup after scooping and swooping, but otherwise, I'm pretty sure it fits perfectly - except that the straps and the part of the cup between the strap and the wing dig into my underarms so terribly that it kills by the end of the day.
