Wow this is a pretty bra! Sadly it is daylight savings time and already dark when I got home from work so no natural light. The pictures don't show the beautiful color. I loved pushups when I was a smaller size and wore VS bras. I couldn't resist the color or the possibility of a good pushup bra. The clincher was it is described as a plunge t-shirt bra.
Idk about this t-shirt bra nonsense but it is a plunge with lace overlay on the cups, scalloped lace on straps and graduated padding along bottom of cup for a "youthful, sexy appearance" Lol! whatever that means although I ...did like the way it looked. The power mesh wings were quite smoothing and I didn't feel like I was bulging out.
I have two major fit issues. The band is very stretchy and I had to start it on the tightest hooks. The herroom.com site recommends going up a cup size but on me they are a bit large in my normal size. The bra is just overall too big probably because the band is too stretchy. It's already boxed up and on it's way back.
Wide wires on this bra so I bent them in a little. They started at 8 inch width and I took it down to about 7.25" with a bit of bend. The fit is better but not perfect. The gore still will not tack but it sure is close. I am being spoiled by Polish bras that have less wide wires and more projection. The shape of this bra is lovely under clothes as it gives a round shape at least. I would swim in a cup size up which is not available anyways. Not sure why larger band bras stop at an H cup either. Seems logical to go up in the cups too. I do think Curvy Couture has gorgeous bras.
This bra is one of my most favorite styles to wear for it's comfort and lovely appearance. I simply adore the details - lace on contrast-colored cups, ribbons, gore drop gem, and curved (non-functional) seaming across each cup - as well as the slight push-up padding and overall moulding. The band is quite stretchy, however - even when brand new - and due to my extensive use of this bra, I'm already on the tightest column of hooks.
----- UPDATE: This is still my most favorite bra style - the bra's label and care instructions have since disappeared with frequent wear - but I have since sized out of Curvy Couture's ...entire 34 and 32 band ranges by one and two cup sizes, respectively. I've done most anything I can think of to this bra, including underwire shape alterations, sewing the openly-gaping underwires together at the gore, and even sewing the straps so they're no longer adjustable. As the band was always too stretchy, I may sew some stitches or darts to counterbalance the stretch factor. Ultimately, though, I will soon have to bury this bra (and Curvy Couture as an option) for good.

This is a beautiful bra that I wish was a good fit. The cups are too small and without enough projection. Major spillage top and center. This brand doesn't make bigger cup sizes than H so I'm out of luck in trying anything different from them.
The details on this bra are phenomenal. The gore does not quite tack although it is very close. A nice everyday bra. My smaller side has a bit of gap at the bottom of the cup but with a little push of the breast tissue into the cup it helps. Wish all bras came with pockets for cookies!
