Oh. My. Goodness.
This bra is AMAZING. The color in person is a deeper purple than what's in the stock image, but I think it's better.
The straps are almost a hair too wide, but I have really narrow shoulders; I think it's just an unfortunate side effect of being petite. However, the straps aren't sitting on any nerves that cause any kind of pain, which is fantastic. it's really comfortable, and the straps are very soft.
The left cup gapes slightly, but this is due to my left breast being smaller than my right breast, it fits well on the right side; I'm currently experiencing some VERY minor quadboobage, but ... I'm close to starting my period (as of Aug 6, 2013) so I'd imagine that the cup won't quad so much once my period ends. It's very slight and doesn't bother me at all. The gaping is not at all noticeable under a form fitting top. I am having to adjust myself by scooping and swooping, but I'm sure over time this will no longer be needed; I've been wearing bras that are too wide in the cups, and they have spread my breasts towards my armpits, so I have to retrain my breasts to go back where they belong. Since I'm close to starting my period, my right breast is pushing the cup off my chest a little bit, so the gore is floating by less than .3cm
The band is firm and gives great support, and the elastics are not digging in or cutting into my skin. I am getting a smooth profile on the sides and back. I am somewhat aware of the band, but at the same time, I can take in a strong deep breath and there's no change in terms of it cutting in uncomfortably.
The overall construction of the bra is fantastic, excellent finishing and doesn't itch or anything like that.
If I really had to nitpick, I would say the gore could maybe be about 1/2cm lower, but on the flip side, my breasts are really soft so I think if the gore was lower, I would get a very unattractive boob spill since my breasts are on the softer side due to pregnancy and breast feeding. Again though, I'm also extremely petite, the measurement from between my clavicle and to the level of my inframammary fold is only 19cm or 7inches.
