aesthetically, i love this bra. the seafoam and dark navy accents are very simple but pretty, and look great against my skin tone. Unfortunately for me, the fit was insanely off. The resulting shape looks pushed up from the front, and very minimized from the side due to how the cups were flattening my breasts inward. In the pictures, the extent of the overspill/compression isn't as obvious.
I consider the band as running small because it doesn't actually reach 34. my comfortably snug measurement is 34, so usually a 34 band is fine and stretches a bit with wear. I felt like this was at the farthest it ... could go, though it may relax over time. The main place where it feels overly snug is the elastic that borders the mesh of the band, and is stiffer. It also has 3 hooks, which im not used to, and i assume makes it fit tighter.
The demi cup is something i usually go for because in anything fuller i get gaping, though because this was so small in the cups, i dont know how my proper size would look. i'd say you could safely size up at least one cup in this if you are shallow, probably more if you aren't. while wearing it i felt extremely compressed and it was difficult to breath because of how hard the cups pressed in on me. The gore digs into me enough to be noticeable and uncomfortable, and i probably wouldn't be able to wear it for a whole day. I'm not sure if in this bra its more of an issue with the bra being too tight rather than the height of the gore. Another large issue is that the straps are almost in my arm pits-and i have wide to average shoulders. im wary of a larger cup size, as i imagine it will make them wider.
this bra seems to fit strangely all around, but if i can find a larger size, i'll probably at least try it.
