If this were a full banded style it would fit better. Because of that the center gore shifts durring the day even though the band and cups fit. The wires get more ponted towards each other (if that makes sense). So an alteration is in order. I guess it just fans out too much for me. As a result this causes the tops of the cups to press into breast tissue (see photo os left side shot) making it appear there is quad-boob, ... but I know I'd be swimming in a larger cup size. A narrower center gore that is also taller will put the cups closer together at the bottom, giving more room in the tops of the cups and also a rounder look from the side. Similar to what a dart in the center gore would do...except there is no fabric on this bra to accomplish that. I hope to attempt to make this a full band style to fit my frame better, but if that's not possible then I will only be adding a taller, narrower center gore.
Fabric is soft against the skin (for the most part. See cons below).
Smooth look, even with the top cup detailing. Under regular fitting shirts show through is not a problem.
Cute design. It's nice to see more t-shirt style options from European companies. They're finally getting with the times! =)
Narrower, smoother elastic. For me this is more comfortable as I find at times most styles from other brands like Freya irritate my skin. But this one will be better in the Summer for tanktops.
Partial banded style, not as supportive as a full band. The underwires can be uncomfortable at times because they press on my ribs. This is only something that happens to me in this style of band, no matter what the size.
No side wings so if you have even the slightest bit of back fat the elastics will emphasize this because they (and the main fabric) are completely stretchy.
The only part of fabric on this that is uncomfortable is around the underarm. I've also read this in other reviews on shopping sites that it is bothersome. Hopefully that will go away from wash and wear. I think it has something to due with the type of elastic.
Center gore is super tiny!

Update - Sold this bad boy, decided it was just too dang small & shallow for me.
I agonized over this bra, and what size to order (because my 28FF Cleo Juna does not fit), and I really wanted the black & pink but really needed a nude T shirt bra too. Turns out the nude color is almost an exact match to my skin tone, and the lace detail is cute. I'm not a huge fan of plain beige bras, and this solves my T shirt bra hunt. After picking apart every measurement possible, I decided my Juna was more of a shape mismatch instead ... of a cup size problem and went with the same size. Definitely glad I did, because a 28G would have been too big.
Material: I find it kinda scratchy, but I have sensitive skin, so YMMV. It's not unbearable though. Hopefully a couple washings will soften it.
Wires: I know this is a hard bra to fit into for most. For me, the wires are the perfect width, and confirm my very strong suspicion that I need wide wires. They stop on my sides exactly where my breast tissue ends, and enclose everything in the middle.
The band: - at first glance, I thought "holy short band batman!!" But I can fasten it on the loosest hooks, and it feels like it will stretch over time.
The straps: VERY short. I have to leave them as loose as they go. I consider my boobs to be fairly low-set on my chest, so keep that in mind if you give this bra a shot.
The cups: I don't fill out the bottom, although it's close. There is slight gapping at the top when I reach forward, but I think that is standard with molded cups like these. There is zero spillage in the middle - again confirming I need wide wires. The *only* nitpick I noticed is I have *very minor* quadding on the inside edges of the cups. I added about 1/4" of length to the band with an extender, and it solves that problem and also allows me to shorten the straps a little bit. So, even though I can fasten the band on the loosest hook (maybe even the middle hook) and it's not particularly uncomfortale, I believe I will use the tightest hook on an extender until the band stretches enough to correct this on its own.

This bra didn't work for me, because the gore was too wide, as it felt like the cups were really far apart on me. Also, I think the cups may have been lacking enough projection. I'm learning that stiff, molded cups are in general not as great as the fabric cups, for me, as they don't accommodate different shapes so well. Also, for an FF, the cup depth wasn't as deep as expected.

I really like this bra and find it comfy. The back is very firm but doesnt dig in. I think it is quite shallow (althogh i am not good assessing such things). I get quite a bit of quad boob at the front and my breasts get squished together but i find it comfortable and very supportive anyway. Actually i know this probably sounds crazy but all my bras that i find most comfortable and supportive sit like this ie i seem to find them most comfortable when they are a fraction small and i get a bit of quad boob. For example the comexim and ewa bras are the same. I dont know if i am the only one who finds this? I sort of feel guilty admitting this as this site is to help find a true fit, and yet i am admitting that what i find most comfortable and most supportive are not perfect fits https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
The centre gore is super low.

It's super pretty, and certainly not the worst fitting bra I own, but the straps are set a little too wide for my shoulders. With a little bit of work, I can get the cups to lie just right, but ultimately, they're a little bit wide, but not quite deep enough, and my boobs are too firm to allow themselves to be shaped by the bra.
When I first got it, I could barely do the band up, and had to wear it with an extender, but after only a few wearings it had relaxed just enough to be comfortable but still supportive, and doesn't seem to be continuing to stretch.
Overall, I like, but don't love this bra. I wouldn't go out of my way looking for it, but if I happen upon one in maybe a 28G, I'd definitely give it a shot.
Also, it's not really relevant to the fit, but every now and then the underwires make an odd creaking noise.

Good for shallow breasts. Short gore was not great for my centre full chest.

Cute bra, definitely not for my shape, it would be great for someone with shallow, outer full breasts

Very nice bra. Got this from another Bratabase user. Has been worn a fair bit, but still has some stretch left.

I was disappointed it didn't fit. Huge quad boob but orange-in-a-glass style. I still don't quite know how to describe my shape. Straps were short and even loosened down to the ring they were still short. Also hurt my back, I remember this style giving me migraines once upon a time. The gore is so delicate and lovely the overall shape on me was minimizing, almost flat. Returning!

Cup is shaped for center full breasts, and top edge of cup curves inward, also cup runs small. I think you'd need to be a very specific shape for this bra to fit well. Quality wise, the light foam shows through the outer material of the cups- in the light seafoam/rose pink trim.
