    This... is actually a bra I can run in. No, seriously. It has boob-un-jiggling support for my size, which is what I asked for when I went bra shopping. I have an active job, and although I love pretty frilly bras, I needed something I could bend over in, haul heavy things in, and not have to worry about tipping out the top of my bra, or jiggling in a distracting way.

    I do not consider this a pretty bra. It's utilitarian, and it fits really well. I'd say the band is a little snug, but not to the point where it's uncomfortable. I should note that I'm ... somewhat fat, and have very small ribs with squishy fat over them, so if you're very firm under the bust, and your measurement is ~35.5m you wouldn't need a 34 band size.

    The one con with this, is that the centre gore, where the wires end, can become uncomfortable by the end of the day. If this bra was about 1/2" lower, it would be perfect. I don't know why the "how it fits" section says it doesn't fit. It does! While it's not my favourite bra, it is perfect for what I require day-to-day.

    *NOTE! I have "back fat". I prefer my bras to cover it in the back, as resting on it is VERY uncomfortable, so you'll notice that the band is not perfectly level.

    I usually like to start my reviews with a few facts about the bra. The Caitlin is a full-cup bra, with quite a lot of coverage. The cup is constructed from 4 parts, with 3 satiny pieces making up the bottom, and a triangle of mesh lace making the top part of the cup. It fastens with 3 rows of 3 columns of hooks.

    I've said to myself that I'd wear a bra even if I hated how it looked if it was comfortable, and I feel like this may be putting me to the test. I think that both satin bras and mesh bras can look sophisticated and ... classy or sexy, but satin and mesh together to me says kind of frumpy. The very high coverage of the cups doesn't score any points when it comes to appearance either. I got the 'nude' colourway, which is a warm honeyish beige.

    I measure less than 28" around snugly, so I'm clearly not the target for this band size, and it shows with how much the band rides up. The main reason for trying this is the full coverage cups which just aren't available in smaller band sizes. Basically any balcony cut bra I try cuts in slightly on the top unless it's far too large elsewhere, but the cups which are taller on the inside and the outside seem to fix this problem. Even Jasmine in 30K with its stretch lace cuts in on top, but at least unaltered, this seems to sit flat despite being two cup volumes smaller. The other positive with this design is that the straps seem to be more centred, so they are better positioned on my shoulders than most bras I've tried recently. I wouldn't mind the straps being a smidge closer together, but I can actually mark these as not being too far apart for once! The straps are quite sturdy and fully adjustable. The gore is quite wide and tall, but tacking gores is very hit and miss with me owing to my mild symmastia and very close-set breasts.

    The cups are both too wide and tall for me, in the sense that there's quite a bit of space top and sides, but even so, the bra feels quite supportive.

    Edit: I've taken in the band to a more appropriate length, and the cups are too small and much too wide for me, and will cut in if I scoop more than very lightly, but this bra is both supportive and comfortable. Especially thanks to adding an extra set of hooks (I have 6 rows on the back now), I can wear the bra all day without wanting to tear it off. I wouldn't mind trying a 34HH or 34J in the Caitlin, but this is quite wearable as is, and I'm not sure if sizing up would cause different fit issues. Not a bra I'd choose for a stunning shape or a lower cut outfit, but great for a busy day when you just want to be comfy. I'd like to try a full cup cut in something which has a narrower cup. I think that there's definitely a market for full cups in very large cup sizes even in smaller bands.

    This is my overall work horse bra. It's comfortable in all but hot weather. It's very modest and covers fully. I feel supported. The bottom edge tends to roll and needs to be adjusted from time to time.

    I bought this bra because I loved the bigger one AND it was the only one that fit. It cuts into my breast tissue in the center and brings the girls to a bit of a point but is otherwise lovely. I love this because they are sturdy, have a solid fit, and are decently comfortable. This time, instead of light purple I got both Grape and nude. The grape is a jewel tone vs an earth tone of the old purple.

    I love this bra. It actually makes my boobs sit in front of me instead of wide. It's definitely no push-up, but as an every day bra, it's perfect. Definitely buy it snug because it will stretch in the band.
