    ABOUT THIS BRA:
    This is an unpadded, mini-longline with wired half-cups.

    Purchasing:
    * $41.17 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns (not Amazon Wardrobe)
    * not available in neutral colors (only hot pink, acid coral, and bright blue)

    Band:
    * One layer of stretch mesh outside boning (between boning and clasps).
    * Band between cup/wire and wing boning constructed of non-stretch lace lined with non-stretch mesh.
    * Elastic at top of band.
    * Wing support: boning.
    * Full band - band straight under wires (a short longline, will not provide waist shaping)
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.
    * Extra seaming (not boning) beneath each apex to prevent rolling/bunching. (spoiler: fails).

    Straps:
    * smooth elastic without outer lacy ... ridges
    * soft (don't stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * straight back (not leotard)

    Cups:
    * 3-seam (4-piece) half-cup (top edge is diagonal, not horizontal, so I can't call this a balconette)
    * unpadded, stiff underwire
    * Upper panel is non-stretch mesh with dot embroidery.
    * Lower panels are non-stretch lace.
    * The entire cup is lined with a non-stretch mesh.
    * Soft cups (no padding or molding).


    ABOUT ME: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * average-set (one finger width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares


    FIT

    Band:
    * length: difficult to fasten (tight) but once on is comfy and stays in place with wear
    * wings: too short, boobs escape
    * After bending over, the band scrunches up in front because there is no boning there.
    * Unable to smooth my rib flares.

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine.

    Straps:
    * too far apart, slip
    * adjust short enough

    Cups:
    * Wires wide enough (SO RARE).
    * Smooth line at top of cup on larger breast. (Tiny wrinkles on smaller breast -- acceptable.)
    * Bottom of cup filled (enough immediate projection at the wire).
    * Apex fits (not too deep, too shallow, nor off-center).
    * Gives a wide, oval, breasts-in-the-armpits shape.
    * Upper, outer edge of cup cuts into tail of Spence.
    * Lace is scratchy.


    Assessment & Plan
    * Band & cups fit. Straps too wide and cups cut into tail of Spence. Unattractive shaping. Front of mini-longline band scrunches up due to lack of boning.
    * Longlines without boning don't stay put. Don't bother with them.
    * Stop trying half-cup styles -- the wide-set straps slip and rub on my tail of Spence.
