Oh, this bra is gorgeous. Just crazy gorgeous. I usually don't go for lace but this lace seems really high-quality and it isn't scratchy at all. It's excellent as a t-shirt bra. Really? A non-molded t-shirt bra? Really.
The band is sooooooo stretchy. I guess this is what a leotard back is. It took some getting used to; at first I thought I could only wear it on the tighest hook but eventually I realized that it's designed to have some give to it so it is perfectly fine on the loosest hook.
The straps are gigantic and padded. This means the adjustable area of the strap is only ... a few inches instead of the entire length of the strap. Also pretty much impossible to wear under tank tops, which isn't a dealbreaker for me, but something to think about.
The cups seem to run slightly large, which is fine because I am often between a a 30G and a 30GG anyway. The material is verrrrrry forgiving and any gaping or wrinkling really doesn't show under clothes. This bra looks great under clothing (I keep checking myself out) and, well, without clothing too. It's lovely. It does show nippage very plainly though, so I can only wear it under multiple layers or when I know I will be particularly warm.
My only real problem is that the straps cut into the fronts of my arms. A lot of bras do this for me. I may have to do something about this one. There's no stretch to the straps or where the straps meet the cups.
The other weird thing is the slightly minimized appearance I get in this bra. Nothing to complain about, but it's weird to see my usually-quite-prominent boobs look a little muted.

This is a beautiful bra. It gives me lots of lift, and the lace pattern is striking, especially in the "berry" color.
I normally take a 32G (EU/US), but when I was sized into this brand I was told that the band runs large and the cups run deep, and truthfully the 30G fits extremely well. I have just the tiniest gaping up at the top of the cup, which says to me that a full-on-top person would do pretty well in the style...
Since it is brand-new, I can't speak to it stretching out, but it is exceedingly comfortable for a brand-new bra. No poking, and except for when ... I spent an entire day on the couch in kind of a crumpled position, no redness from the underwires really.
I will say that the lace doesn't feel soft; there's a kind of starchy quality to it. But I haven't found it itchy, either. The lace is quite discreet under t-shirts, but the cups have a very pretty ribbon-y... "lip" to them, which will probably create a line under very thin shirts.
I managed to get this bra on sale, because it was the very last of the "fashion" color for the year. I recommend that, since its price point is $170-ish, but I loved it so much that I ordered a neutral one at full price too.

It's the first bra that has fit me and looked good! The downsides are that it is expensive ($160), and the lace on one of them has started to tear after a year or so. I guess that's not unreasonable, but for the price, I wish it lasted longer.

Cup is too big! I had an alarm set for a 30G Empreinte that wasn't a ridiculous price forever, but then I changed sizes. (Fairly recently bought and tried on a 30F, which I've discovered is just about perfect.)
The bands on these are stretchy, and I was able to wear this even as a 32, so I doubt someone with a smaller rib cage would find it firm enough for their tastes.
