I've never owned a bandeau bikini that actually stayed up. Most bandeaus are unwired, however, the Lucille is wired and so you get a very supported look. The cups are moulded and the construction is sturdy enough to get this bikini to work like a strapless bra. It actually stays up better than any strapless bra I own.
The shape it gives me is less than ideal. I'm not very projected, but this style does run very shallow. Because the gore is so high, in the right size, you will not get any cleavage. The 30G might be a cup too small on me, so I get some quad boob in the upper region of my chest. The profile is not the most flattering either. The shallowness plus the sturdiness of this bikini flattens me right out.
All that being said, the pros outweighs the cons and it's a good looking bikini set that's not too juvenile yet not matronly.
