The band runs loose and seems to fit more like a 32. After a couple of wears, I can comfortably wear it on the tightest hook, so I'll have to take it in a bit. Since it's padded, it's hard to tell whether the cup shape is right. It seems to follow my breast root pretty well, but I'm not convinced that I'm filling the top of the cup completely. That's ok, since it's molded, and the shape looks ok, even if the top cuts into my root a bit. You can't see it under a shirt. The hook is kind of itchy, though, when I wear it ... on the loosest, so even after I alter the band, I'll be wearing it on the second hook.
The padding is a bit of a weird spot. There's a space between the padding and the wires, and this was kind of uncomfortable the first day I wore it. It feels ok now, but it leaves an odd indent on the bottom of my breast where it falls between the wire and the padding. The space is even enough on both cups that I have to assume that this is deliberate. Bit of an odd design choice.
Update: I sewed a ribbon over most of the bottom elastic and left maybe 1.5 inches left unsewn. It fits a bit loosely on the loosest hook, but I couldn't hook it on the second hooks, so I have to deal with that weird itchiness I get on the loosest hook. Other than that, this bra is quite comfortable to wear now.
I thought about the padding some more, and I think I understand why it doesn't do anything for me. All the padding is located where I don't have much fullness- on the sides and bottom. It just makes the cup shallower in those areas, so my breasts fit just fine with no pushing up.
