I can't sing the praises of this bra enough! Whoever thought this gorgeous of a bra would actually fit *and* be comfortable *and* make me look good??
I decided to take the risk of trying a narrow Polish bra because most of my bras felt like there was extra space on the sides by the wires. I couldn't tell my root width because it looked like it was angled or slanted, widening out higher up like the Nike swoop. As it turns out, these narrow Polish cups cause me no discomfort either at the sides or at the gore. I can't tell if that's because the construction is ... narrow enough that the wires are well clear of tissue, because I'm used to the harsh, hard wires of Cleo and these wires are normal by comparison, or because the band is surprisingly loose (measuring at 29"+ for a 60 band).
Nonetheless, this is one of the most comfortable bras I've worn since leaving the bra matrix, and it plumps up my cleavage without any pads and doesn't flatten me out under a shirt like a lot of molded bras do. I've gotten tired of the front-and-center placement of Cleos that narrow me out completely from the front and hide my boobs unless I'm in profile, and this bra keeps me round all over and evenly distributed.
I could use a hair more projection in this bra since my scoop and swoop settles down slightly, but for a molded bra I'm not complaining! I can't tell if this bra had a manufacturing anomaly with the band being Freya-stretchy, but I would go down to a 55 if I could.
I love you, Ingrid.

The cups do run a bit small (somewhere between 1 and 2 cups smaller than their size chart suggests), and the band was a bit tighter than I was expecting, but... she's so beautiful. I have rather tall roots (although it's mostly shallow "stealth boob" that doesn't show up until I put on a bra), so, even though I sized up a cup size, a 60F was a bit too short in the cups, as well as being a little tight in the band. Okay, it was uncomfortably tight in the band; I have a 28.5" underbust and absolutely should have just gone with a 65 (a 70 ... would definitely be too big, though). I think a 65F would be perfect. The straps are fully adjustable, and I requested that they be moved in for my narrow shoulders. The wires seem narrower than average, but maybe it's just the fact that they're so close together in the center gore that makes them seem narrow? They're nearly touching, which is apparently pretty great for cleavage. The seams/lace detail/bows do show slightly under tight, thin shirts. I wouldn't say it's padded, but there's enough of a lining to hide the fact that I do, in fact, have nipples. As for shape, it's round without being unnatural-looking, with quite a bit of lift. To me, the cups seem neither shallow nor projected, but this is the first bra I have ever worn that I could even pretend fits, so I don't have much to compare it to. As far as longevity goes, I wore this bra several times a week until I outgrew it about a year after buying it, and the wires aren't doing anything weird or painful, it seems to have kept its shape well, and the band is still uncomfortably tight, although perhaps a little less so than when I first bought it. I still have to use the loosest hook.
