The measurements of this bra were taken after I bent the wires to better fit my ribcage (http://brasihate.blogspot.com/2012/01/what-to-do-with-those-pesky-wide.html) and to ameliorate the phenomenon seen here (http://www.venusianglow.com/2011/02/why-do-g-bra-cups-push-breasts-apart.html).
This fits...fine. I like the tight band because it allows for stretching! The gore is high, to which my sternum is unaccustomed, but this is very flattering to my bottom-heavy breasts. I feel very secure and supported in this bra.
My two issues:
* The wires stretch if I put the band on the middle hook. Not cool! They then grind against my ribs and are very uncomfortable. Bending them like the tutorial on Bras I Hate helped, but I have to repeat this occasionally.
* The fabric is a little itchy, but two rinses with diluted vinegar helped. Also, for future note, do not use Eucalan to wash bras if you have prissy princess boob skin like I do. It's fine for my knitted objects, but not my bras.
