I really like this bra! Although it is not the most supportive, it is very comfortable and pretty (I really like the velvet trim). I think it is perfect for desk work/lounging, etc - it is the most comfortable bra I own. The trim on the top of the cups is slightly elasticated, so it is very comfortable and does not cause the dreaded quadboob. Half of the straps are non stretchy (which helps balance the stretchy cups), while the adjustable back half is thick elastic increasing comfort.
Now for some issues: I usually wear a 36 band, but in this bra I should have probably got ... a 34, or even a 32 - the band is very stretchy and fit comfortably on the tightest hook as soon as I got it. The straps are not fully adjustable, and I had to sew them in place to prevent them from loosening (the clasps slide down) as I wear it. There is also some puckering on the outside of the cups near the straps, but I think this is due to my breast shape (would probably not happen on side-heavy breast). The cups are also very stretchy.
As I have worn it more I have found that the wires under my arm, especially on my right side rub. It is not bad if I am not being very active, but if I have to move my arms a lot the rubbing becomes painful by the end of the day and leaves a bit of a raw spot for few days. The wires are a touch too narrow for me; I think the cups and wires just get bullied around by my heavy breast tissue.
