I love this bra - got it in the electric blue colourway and it makes a real impact. The fit is really great which surprises me because this bra and the Lori (sister fit) are both in the full-on-bottom shape category that I've tended to avoid. I also wear the really projected Cleos (Melissa, Ellis). But I guess my breasts are changing shape (I'm 45) so the more full on bottom style - with lots of projection at the lower cup - is good. I'm half inclined to try the Lucy but I'm concerned that it's more closed on top and slightly more shallow and I wouldn't want ... anything shallower than this style (I have a lot of centre immediate projection). The fabric is much softer than in the really projected styles - much less industrial - though slightly less supportive. This bra is still quite supportive because its shape provides more pressure over the entire width of the cup. As such, it's less boobs on a plate and gives a slightly wider / flatter profile. It's still nicely projected though, with a low(ish) gore that works. The wires are firm. The straps are fairly narrow (but not too narrow). The band fits SNUG. Size up. I had to return the 32 (size I usually wear) for a 34. I thing I love: How the upper cup lace affixes to the side panel (it dips below where the strap meets the side cup) - this is what gives it a less projected top cup while the side cup continues to be high enough to capture side breast tissue and to be supportive. It's a hybrid of projection with an understated shape.
