First of all, I love the look of this bra. The bows, the stripes, the black and gold color scheme . . . I was in love. It's gorgeous. I also love the way this bra makes my boobs look - hourglass-from-the-front with some really nice "cakes-on-a-plate" cleavage.
The band is quite stretchy, and I typically wore it on the tightest or second-tightest hook.
However, this bra proved to be quite uncomfortable for me! I can't wear it for more than an hour because it stabs me in the armpits. The central gore also does not lie flat.
This bra would be great for someone with wider roots/a longer torso than I.

This is another bra for more shallow boobs.
The wires feel almost too narrow for me, although really I think they're just on the edge of being too narrow. They're stiffer than some of the other Curvy Kate bras I've tried, which is nice.
The real issue with this bra is the lack of depth in the cup, It is way too shallow for me -- I can't fill out the bottom, and quad boob out the top. Also, the apex is in the wrong spot so I somehow get an east-west look. It's beautifully round from the side (save the quad boob) but from the front and under ... clothes it's terrible.
I ordered up a size from my usual cup size and down to a 32 since I knew it was a stretchy band, and the cup was STILL a cup size too small. So I'd say this runs at least 2 cup sizes too small.
It's not as open of a cup as some of the other Showgirl bras (like the Fleurty or Thrill Me), as it does curve in some at the top. I think this would be a good option for people who get a bit too much gapping at the top of those bras, if they can get their size right. I think the shape would be good for me if it were a deeper cup as from the side it's not absolutely terrible. But I'm not sure if I could ever really get it to fit me.
