This is probably the best fitting bra I own now.
My problem with it is the shape. It gives me a bit of a downward 7 shape, unless I adjust just perfectly in which case I can get more of an upward 7 shape. My nipples show through the mesh, so it's not even the shape being manipulated into the upside down 7 for me(the actual shape appears more even to FoB), it's the seam of the bra. 0_0
If I push my tissue down and adjust more, instead of letting it fall into the cups, I can adjust the seams to be more of a perky shape.
That's kind of ... annoying, and annoys me more than the fit of this bra (which is near perfect) makes me happy. Lol
As for fit, I'm not sure if this would work for wide roots, but I'm guessing it's aimed more towards average. The wires are still a little wide for me, but I have an unusual shape and would otherwise need really narrow wires. Overall, the wires are the best I've tried aside from a Gossard Phoebe 30E I just received, but the cup depth doesn't work for me in that, of course. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Cup depth in this bra is just about perfect. I feel like I could use maybe like a centimeter or two more xD so no big deal.
The band is tight enough, but not too tight. It feels stretchy.
I feel like this one is maybe best for even shapes.
The gore has little separation, which works well for me.
Appearance wise, I have mixed feelings. The bra is both very dainty (silk-like material, bows) and unappealing to me. Not ugly, just not all the colors, frills and lace that I normally go for. I think my taste in bras is super extravagant though.
This seems like it'd at least be much more practical than what I normally go for, which is what I was aiming for.
Fabric is also extremely silky feeling and comfortable.
My biggest complaint is that shape. This is my first CK, so I can't speak for them all, but I think this would work well for more perky people, even, or FoB. I'm slightly even/slightly FoT with my left side, and it doesn't look like I'm being supported, but again, I actually am, it's just that my shape puts the seam in a weird area unless I spend forever adjusting. I'm slightly tuberous, so I just lack that bottom fullness and it makes me sad because if the seam were different, this would be my new go-to.
I haven't worn it a full day yet, so I don't know if my adjusting will stay put or if it'll somehow go back to the unpleasant shape. I imagine it wouldn't, because if tissue were to move it shouldn't move upward unless I bent over and the cups and/or band were too big.
I'll edit once I've worn it longer.
Edit: Wore it longer. This bra makes me remember how much I hate my boobs. I guess it didn't fulfill it's purpose https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":p" /> Just no way a good fit for even mildly tuberous people unless you're comfortable with showing your true shape. Most of what I own is to shape my boobs and make me look like I actually developed. This shows my actual shape and doesn't even make them appear lifted because of where the seam lies (which is probably partly due to being under developed). Blah. Why. :[ This bra literally depresses me.
Edit2: Looking back, this bra was way too wide for me, which likely resulted in some of that dreadful shape.
At the time, 5.6" was the narrowest I'd had trying out my new size. Now I know I need 4.8-5.3".
