Love this bra! The fit feels really great. (Big shoutout to Stephanie with Breakout Bras, who recommended this bra and size to me based on emails alone! It's obvious she knows what she's doing, and I will definitely be buying from them in the future!)
The fit is really nice on me, and super comfortable. There's plenty of projection at the wire, the gore has a strong tack, the band is snug without being restrictive, and I'm not fighting to keep the straps on my shoulders. The only fit issue is that the wires are a good bit wider than they ought to be (1.5-2"!). However, I don't think ... this causes significant fit issues because of the fantastic amount of center projection and the fact that the underwires don't run high under my under arms. The wires also feel somewhat flexible and aren't pokey at all.
Important note about this "plunge style" is that it's rather different than other plunges (which is great for me, since my center-full breasts don't like to stay put in most plunges). I'll just paste in Stephanie's description here, because I think it's spot on:
"This is a plunge shape but not a traditional plunge bra style. Like Tiana, it gives a very forward and boosted side and underbust fit. This cup shape is great for softer and heavier tissue because it keeps the breast tissue from settling in the bottom and putting extra pressure on the wires. This wire shape also tucks closer to the root for ladies who have narrower/higher attached tissue. The center cup depth is very accommodating, and the stretch lace upper cups will hug well to softer tissue while the banded edging keeps the tissue in place instead of letting it slip out as you move."
The material is very smooth and satiny. I love the stretch lace on on top, which helps provide a smooth line over the tops of my breasts while still preventing my center-full breast tissue from spilling over the somewhat lower gore. I'm rather FOB, but I think this bra could work for people who are also more even or even somewhat FOT, because of it's stretchiness.
As far as attractiveness, it's not my favorite, especially in the nude color. Something about the particular style of the lace edging and the print used feels matronly on me. I do really love the look of the red floral pattern, so I might get that colorway instead, although I really do need to have a well-fitting nude bra... It's definitely not a "sexy" plunge, like others, but it's also far from the worst I've seen.
