I bought this bra because I imidiately fell in love with the lacey design. The shape it gives me is very "CK balcony" typical: a lot of forward projection, without beeing to revealing. The lace at the top is not stretchy and did cut in (I am between fob and fot) from the beginning, but it was not visible under a shirt.

BAND: The bra fits at the very edge hook with room for two fingers (whereas the 34E, I could clasp the furthest one in and still put a whole hand under the band).
UNDERWIRE: Fairly comfortable, no digging in and am well padded. The wires are a little wider than what the usual shape I prefer (bra's that pull the girls front and center, no E&W thanks) but for a soft bra, the position isn't bad. The wire at the armpits is not high enough to help migrated and escaped breast tissue move back into place.
GORE: the center gore might be a tad ... too high for me as sometimes it pushed some force onto my ribs (not enough to bruise or be sore after a day of wear), just a tad uncomfortable. Nothing a little bending of the wires won't fix.
LACE & CUP: The lace is pretty decent quality with good embroidery stitching. The shape is a little pointy when worn, though that might be due to my own breast shape.
My larger side fills the cup nicely (during period) and the top edge of the lace lies flush-ish (there are no 'wrinkles' but its not like lego pieces perfect). My smaller side has an issue of wrinkles at the top. Perhaps one size down might be a better fit for both larger and smaller side breasts.
CONCLUSION: I'll be keeping this bra as an at home or errands day bra. It's very comfy and pretty but the shape it gives....doesn't quite fit my wardrobe's demands haha

This is actually less comfortable than the 32DD Curvy Kate Emily (CK5001) I have because the wires poke up higher on the side. I think I need the wire wider.
