Fit: This bra is too small. I have a feeling the one in a size up was actually the correct size, even though it looked large. That's because this bra is meant for someone with narrow but shallower breasts that are taller than mine. I normally fit molded cups because my breasts flow like cake batter into most molds. Not so for this bra. Its cut and sew style with an underlying foam cup makes an angular, stiff shape which does not allow my breasts to shape and be shaped like it. They push out the gore because there is no room for ... center fullness. They bulge out the sides where the bra is cut low and with too much room (why?). They press down the bottom to make room. The cups gape at the top because they are too tall, but when pressed in I get quadding. I'm not sure who this bra would fit in my size range. Maybe a more narrow splayed tall breasted someone. I'm not sure though that her breasts would not spill out the side. The straps are flimsy and fold over. The fundamental flaw here is that the straps should attach farther towards the armpit to allow for forward projection and prevent armpit gapping. That alteration might make the bra wearable for me but it's not worth it because of the other insurmountable fit issues.
Style: I love the minimalist but lovely design. The bow is fine, the crosshatch design of the fabric on the gore and wings is nice. The seams are not too prominent. The beige is a good fit for pale skin.
Comfort: The fabric is soft but for the band. Under the cups it is harsh and chafes. The straps are narrow and very stretchy. The band elastic is not narrow but not as we'd and soft as Elomi.
