I ordered the 38 in this bra because reviews suggested that people should size up in the band. It's about right, but I wish I'd actually ordered the 36. Still, the center gore lies flat on the last hook column, and there is no gaping at the top (a problem that I usually have). All things considered, this is one of my better fitting bras, but it does have too much of the east-west thing. Also, my left breast is at least one cup size larger than the right. That means this bra requires me to scoop up the left side and sort of...fold it up into ... the cup. There's a slight quad-boob effect, which is rare for me because I'm bottom heavy. But it doesn't look pronounced and doesn't show up under clothes. Other problems: As with most bras, the bra straps are set too widely apart and tend to fall off, and... The thing is, I'd be able to live with all of these fit issues if the left strap -- my larger side -- didn't dig in so painfully. I can only wear this bra for a few hours at a time, and I need strap pads to make it bearable. There are only 2 rows of hook and eye closures, but the band is more snug than most, and it doesn't bother me much.
