I had been waiting to try this bra for several months, and finally managed to get the room in my budget to give it a try. The colors of the bra are just so bright and cheerful, and the bra itself felt light and well-constructed. The material is nice and soft--I had worried a little bit about the lace being the scratchy kind of lace, because I have sensitive skin--and it felt nice to wear. I was also relieved that the wires are lower on the sides; my Marcie is my best-fitting bra, with the minor caveat that the underwires dig in under my arms ... after several hours. With the Skye, however, I didn't have that problem; the wires are lower, but still provide sturdy support from the side. The overall feel of the bra was very supportive and sturdy; I didn't feel any slippage or undue movement when I jumped around a little or bent over.
I ended up returning the bra, however, because the bra cut in too much across the top of my breast. On my bigger side, the yellow lace trim cut in juuuust enough to be noticeable, and it only became worse when I straightened my shoulders (and leaned over to test stability). I also had this problem with the 34HH - Cleo » Blake Balconnet Bra (9151), where the lace trim at the top doesn't have quite enough flexibility for me; with the Skye, however, I found that to be more noticeable and noticeable under a light top. While the Skye's lace trim had some give to it, it was apparently just firm enough not to work with my soft tissue, so I sent it back.
