I actually really like this bra! It is the closest to perfect fitting unlined balcony style I have found since the start of my bra journey. Unfortunately it does have a couple small issues. The good: band is firm and snug on loosest hook but not uncomfortable. I wore it out to do errands for 5 plus hours and it was still reasonably comfortable by the time I got home. Straps adjust perfectly for me although I have them close to their longest setting and I am very petite, so I could see that being a problem for taller or longer torso'd women. The shape it gives me ... is lifted and rounded within my frame. The top has a slight bit of that ski slope shape the are pretty common with balconette style. I am FOB with deflated breasts. So no volume on top and even though I'm FOB my profile has flattened out quite a bit even in the fullest parts. My boobs are squishy. I find balcony bras a challenge because they usually gape at top and my breasts all spill forward creating a very pointed unflattering shape. This bra does not do that! The Bad: band feels right but still causes some back squish. I also get a slight bit of armpit squish even after swooping and scooping. I'm not sure if the underwires are too short? Feedback welcome https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> Because of my petite frame I've often found the opposite to be a problem where wires dig and are uncomfortable and I don't have that problem with this bra, so for now I'll trade uncomfortable wires for a slight underarm pooch. It's not noticeable under a tshirt. To me this cup almost feels like a half cup although I stay put in them and do not have any quading. Although on my larger side I do feel like I would quad very slightly if it was a tiny smidge smaller. I think I'm between cup sizes tho because in my cleo Maya 30DD I have tons of wrinkling at the top and can't quite fill it. I've also found that I'm between sizes in my l'Mystere and Wacoal moulded/T-shirt styles so finding an absolute perfect fit is very challenging. I have read in other user reviews are that the Natasha cups run a bit small so I'm excited to try some other cleo styles in this size.
