Aesthetics: padded seamed cups, beige fabric base, overlaid with a sheer pattern and vertical black embroidery resembling columns of butterflies. There are also two black satin ribbons on each cup over the seams and black lace along the tops of the cups and along the bottom of the band. There is a beige satin and black lace ribbon bow at the top of the center gore. There is a triangle of satiny fabric topped with another beige satin and black lace ribbon bow extending about 3 inches up the strap, covering where the strap is attached to the cup (facing outward). I like it, but it does peek ... out of strappy/sheer tops.
Fit: I love it. Usually. The cups are shallow and the wires are very tall, suiting my tall boobs very well. I have low-set boobs and always have boob/armpit fat escaping from the cups, so this bra supports and lifts very well. I can definitely see it poking/rubbing someone with short/high-set boobs in the armpits, though. The band is stretchy, so I wish I could order down, but I'll just alter it when it starts to annoy me.
When I'm retaining water, I get the weird smashed boob "shelf" that projected shapes get, where my boobs are pushed up and spill out of the top in the weirdest way.
