Firstly, it's a beautiful fabric. I love the shimmer and the embroidery. The fabric is stiff but VERY much softer than the 34H - Elomi » Betty Plunge Bra (8170) and softer than the 34H - Elomi » Renee Banded Bra (8440) . This, I think, is the reason it's so much stretcher, band wise than both of those other bras. Brand new, I really need to use the middle hooks to get it snug enough. The sides come up high and it took me a good hour of wearing it, to get used to that feeling and it encourages good posture as the part where the ... bra connects to the straps in front, if I slump, dig into my collar bone on the right side. The gore lays flat for me. I think it fits okay although I am disappointed in the how stretchy the fabric of the band is, although considering some reviews about how unwearably tight some other bra brand bands ordered to size are, I think I can work with stretchy. (Can you say bra brand bands 5 times fast? I can't.) My breasts are supported but not as securely as a full cup elomi. I think, because it's more stretchy fabric, I noticed I have a bounce to my step when I am walking the dogs. None of my other bras do that. So, while it fits and holds the girls high, I think it will wear out faster than the other bras I have because the fabric has too much give when new.
If you like your bands a bit looser, high sides to keep the girls from drifting out the back, and a beautiful black embroidered plunge, this might be your bra.
PS After wearing this bra over 12 hours, I just keep liking it more, it's very comfortable. If the band stretches out too soon, I will just take it in if it's not ratty looking by then and will up date this review.
