I really wanted to like this bra, but it's not the right shape for me. I sized down in the band and up in the cup, as recommended, and that was definitely the right move. Still, though, I can easily fasten the 34 on the tightest hook. It seems sturdily sewn, although a little scratchy out of the box.
In the cups, this bra is both too big and too small. I'm not full enough on top for it, and I've got big gaps along the tops of the cups. These could theoretically be taken in with a dart, since the cup tops are gently elasticized (which I'd like ... a lot if they were closer to fitting). The straps are soft, fully adjustable, and are close enough set to stay on my shoulders, and pulling them up does help with the fit up top. At the cup bottoms, though, the wires are too narrow and too deep for me. The wires are reasonably wide -- they hit maybe an inch in front of my underarms -- but not wide enough for me. They're definitely cutting into breast tissue, and, at the same time, I've got a little orange-in-a-glass space at the base of the wires.
So, I'd recommend trying this if you need wide wires, are full on top, and like a deep cup shape, but for me, this one is going back and I'm not going to try another size. Too bad! I love the colors and my husband loves the sheerness of this bra.
