This bra's cut is identical to Curvy Kate Vegas, AKA The Flamingo Bra. If the Ellace almost worked for you, but you got in-cup quadding from the too-stretchy lace, then Tropics and Vegas are definitely worth a try.
The band runs big around this size, at least compared to Panache (the brand I have the most experience with). I fastened the 34JJ on the tightest hooks and was able to wear the 32K comfortably. The straps are pretty stretchy too.
I'm still learning my shape. I know I have soft tissue and narrow roots, and I need lots of projection at the wire. I think I'm omega-shaped, a little ... FoB, with center fullness. Wires like to slide out of my IMF. Wire ends like to stab me in the armpits.
THE BRA ON ME
At the beginning of the day, the Tropics was wonderfully comfortable and gave a nice, natural shape. After a few hours, it slid about 2" out of my IMF. It was still pretty comfy, but the shape got pointy, my larger side was quadding out, and I had some serious bounce. I also started to notice some east/west action (which may have been there from the beginning).
