    ABOUT THIS BRA
    This is an unpadded, seamed, half cup, underwire bra with polka dots.

    Purchasing:
    * $68 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns
    * Also available with Amazon Wardrobe.
    * Available in black, beige, white, yellow, blue, and purple -- all with tone-on-tone polka dots.

    Band:
    * One layer of smooth (not dotted) stretch mesh.
    * Wing support: seaming.
    * Continuous band - wires lower than wings.
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.

    Straps:
    * smooth elastic with outer ridges
    * soft (don’t stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * leotard back

    Cups:
    * 2-seam (3-piece) half cup
    * unpadded, average strength underwire
    * Inner top edge of cup is edged with elastic. Outer cup edge is non-stretch seaming.
    * ... Top panel is stretch lace (unlined).
    * All other panels are constructed of non-stretch mesh over a non-stretch, semi-opaque knit.
    * Soft cups (no padding or molding).


    ABOUT ME: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * average-set (one finger width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares


    FIT DETAILS

    Band:
    * length: band rides up
    * wings: way too short

    Gore: Tacks. Height & width fine.

    Straps:
    * Way too far apart. Slip.
    * Adjust short enough, but already at shortest setting so won’t be able to tighten when elastic relaxes.


    Cups:

    * Wires very narrow.
    * Top of cup: wrinkles or gaps (expects more upper fullness)
    * Bottom of cup: wrinkles or gaps (not enough immediate projection at wire)
    * Cup apex: fits (not too deep, too shallow, nor off-center)
    * Strong wires aren’t pushed down or out.
    * Just covers boobs, doesn’t provide much shaping.
    * Outer edge of cup encloses Tail of Spence (and it stays there).


    Assessment & Plan:
    * Band too big. Cups too narrow and deep. Also tried +1 cup size (32FF) which had wide enough wires but is even deeper. This model is too projected for me. STOP, SHAPE MIS-MATCH (too projected).
    * Also, when will I stop trying half-cup styles? The straps are too wide-set for my petite frame -- slip and cut into tail of Spence.
    * This style is recommended on r/abtf for FoB/even, wide-ish roots, above average projection, and rounding horizontal oval breasts. This should have checked so many of my fit boxes, but it didn’t.
    * I recommend this model for FoT/even with above average projection and average (not narrow, not wide) roots and average to broad shoulders (not narrow). It probably would round-out horizontal oval breasts, if it is the correct width and depth.

    Finally enough immediate projection! Unfortunately, I have too much center fullness (one of the wires keeps popping out) , and there's way too much extra space at the top of the cup. Wire length is at max tolerance, but cup covers tail of spence and armpit. Note: I'm short waisted.

    It's a nice bra, with plenty of projection. It's not really practical under clothes - not only is it sheer, but there are raised dots in the fabric, lace flowers, and attached bows that all show through. It's a very comfortable bra. The wires are short on the sides.

    Love it!! I'm not really sure of my breast type, but I always have trouble filling the top of the cups in my bra (though looking at me it doesn't seem like I'm particularly full on the bottom). This bra fits nearly perfectly and is so comfortable - the gore lies flat, I fill out the cups, and nothing rubs, sticks, or pokes me.

    For the curious, I tried this on under an American Eagle white t-shirt; you can see texture from the polka-dots sometimes, but other than that it's invisible.

    Update 10/13/13: This bra no longer fits as it is too small in the cups. May be due to tissue migration.
