I bought this bra because I gained weight so I had to buy larger cups, I spilled very much on top of all my bras. It was a good deal because it was in sale and quite cheap, but it didn't fit : the cups are a little too small (32H) and I still have a quadboob effect while wearing it.
The center gore doesn't lay flat all the way against my sternum and I could do with a tighter band, I can fasten the bra comfortably on the 2nd hooks...
I don't feel supported enough at the top of the cups (where there is sheer fabric, ribbons and elastic ... band). I prefer bras that gives a round shape at the top of the cups, but this one gives me more the impression that my boobs are scooped inside the cups and offered to the view instead of being comfortably held against my chest.
This meaning it is a true balcony bra and it would be useful with low front neckline tops.
I don't like the combination of the bright pink-fuschia bra with the dark blue ribbons much (I couldn't choose the color) nor the fabric (feels a little too synthetic for my taste) but there is pretty embroided details on the cups and the ribbons and bows are a nice touch.
This bra gives me an overall round enough shape, not pointy so it's a plus.
Nothing particular about the straps, it stays in place.
I really appreciate the 3-hooks rows.
The other thing I really like is that there is not extra fabric under the wires. When there is extra fabric it always ends up rolled under the wires and it's not comfortable.
I would say the level of support is medium with this bra.
I'm sending this one back and ordering another Curvy Kate bra in 32HH in cotton-like fabric this time.
