My shape: close set, center full, full on bottom, average/narrow width roots, tall shallow roots, soft tissue.
I wish the center gore wasn't so oppressive for me on this bra. It comes up a tad too much and it sits on my close-set/center-full breasts and hurts. The cup was an almost perfect fit though. There was some slight wrinkling in the cups, but nothing that would bother me. I also loved the round, projected shape it gave me. The band is nice and snug and fit me well. The height of the cup was perfect, not too tall, not too short. I have tall, but shallow roots (two fingers below my collarbone), but this bra didn't really cut into them. In the end, I let it go since I didn't want to risk doing an alteration on the gore to a brand new bra and mess it up.

The band is a bit loose. May need to wear on second set of hooks, as I noticed my boobs drifted down a little after a few min. not filling out the cups after S&S, but it's not quite as bad. Mostly gapping at the top and a little wrinkling at bottom and a decent amount of wrinkling on the sides. Straps are maybe a little wide, though not sure it would be enough to stop me from keeping it everything else were right. Like the simpler non/lacy styling of this better...but that fabric around the underwires is scratchy! Like this shape

It's not scratchy fabric, but it causes itchyness; softened up (a little) after washing. I tend to prefer plunges, since my breasts are close set, so I'm not used to the tall gore. At first it felt like it was pressing in, but not so much as to cause any pain. In fact, it lay flat from top to bottom, so I think it's just a matter of getting used to a balconette. The outer wire width is OK on me, but if I went up a cup size, I probably wouldn't fill it out. Even before trying it on, the seams on the cup were ... a bit puckered from the stitching, (which is a manufacturing defect: the thread tension was too tight for the weight of the fabric.) But thankfully that effect lessened after washing. The seams are sewn with a flat felled seam, then are covered & top-stitched. The 3 sections of the cup merge at the apex of the cup and inevitably, there is extra thickness, and it resembles a nipple under thin shirts, whether or not your own lines up with it.
The black band across the top of the cups are only a tiny bit stretchy, and when I hold my posture correctly, the edge lays nicely flat. But if I slouch my shoulders whatsoever, that edge becomes open & vertical, creating an edge you can see under your clothes. At those times in my cycle when I am a little fuller, that effect goes away. The straps are stretchy, fully adjustable and flocked on the inside edge, so are very comfortable.
Bottom line: it fits fairly well, but not my favorite. I can't ignore the itchyness (regardless how many times I've washed it), and it just doesn't have the lift these old girls need to look younger.
