    Even though this gore is comfortable in both width and height for my breasts, I still think the cups are too wide-set for me. I feel like this bra was made for someone who is wider across the front of the rib cage. As a result, I feel like this bra attempts to pull my breasts to my sides in an east-west fashion, resulting in quadding at the top edge of the cup as well as lots of wrinkles along the base of the cup. I don't believe it's that it doesn't have enough lower PROJECTION, because when I look at the cup, it does seem to have good lower projection. I think it's just a matter of this bra wanting my torso to be wider across the front than it is.

    This is a pre-loved bra for me, so the band feels a little loose on the loosest hooks - but it doesn't appear to be riding up, so it's supportive enough, which means I should get plenty of wear out of it.

    The gore is quite wide for me, but it sits low and is very short, so it tacks properly without any problems. No surprise, being a plunge, but amazingly, despite my inner fullness and soft tissue, I don't fall into the centre of this bra the way I normally do in plunges. The cups are pure non-stretch lace, with a seamed non-elastic edge.

    The trade-off for a ... plunge that works seems in this case to be the shape the bra gives me. It doesn't bring me forward, so from the front I look quite wide, and in profile the shape is not particularly uplifted and quite natural. It's not a bad shape, I just prefer to be a little more forward so my arms don't come into contact with my breasts.

    The wire is quite short on this one; I normally need a much larger wing height to contain my tissue, but despite the wire finishing so low I'm not having any problems with falling out the side either.

    All in all this bra is a bit of a mystery to me: by all accounts it really shouldn't work for me: it's closed along the top edge of the cup, the wings are too short, it's a plunge. And yet it does. I guess it's simply the cut of the cup!

    Empreinte are a difficult brand to find cheaply, which is why I snatched this one up -- but if you do get a chance to try one on, nab it, because honestly the comfort of this bra is flawless. One thing to keep in mind is that this model at least runs large in the cup: I'm a 30FF in most everything I've tried so far, but the 30F in this is perfect.

    Originally bought for my slimmer, more petite sister (who of course changed her mind). It's always been a bit too snug in the band for me, I tried it 3-4 times with an extender but just didn't reach for it as I had other Melodys in 32 that just felt better. With the extender, it fit great when I was heavier with a breast perimeter of about 10-10.5. I've lost some weight and breast volume though so it is now much too big.

    Lovely amount of projection and beautiful bra but just a little too big to be workable on my smaller side and probably a looser band than I need though that could be because I bought it used.
