This is my first unlined EM bra, and I have to say I really like it! The band runs pretty tight for a 32, but as I'm in between 30 and 32 it works really well for me. I may wear it with an extender just to break it in, but it's not too bad. The cups fit like a dream and are very comfortable. Soft, satiny material with a very soft stretch lace on top, very forgiving for shape, IMO. The EM website said this cut was perfect for people with soft breasts, and I'd have to agree - mine seem very happy in this material. I ... don't think it's as full coverage as one might expect from this cut, and it feels nice and conservative without being matronly or too boring. I needed a good summer nude and this fits the bill perfectly.
The wings are high, but comfortable for me; they don't seem to cut into any pudge too badly. The wire channels are very close at the top, sort of overlapping at the gore, which I love, but I've pushed the wires down in their channels a bit just so they reach the ends up in the wings (things are more comfy for me this way, with my annoyingly prominent ToS). The gore tacks VERY firmly on me, so that may get bent a bit to make it more comfortable, but it's nice and low as well; I tend to get closer set towards the top, so any higher and it would be sitting on breast tissue.
Little bows as adornments, as usual, but there's a little pearl dangly charm at the gore as well. Nothing too fancy, but it's better than just a plain bow. Nothing else other than the scalloped edging and the lace, but I don't think it's too boring. The shiny fabric makes it feel more luxe than it would otherwise be, I think.
I'm still getting used to wearing wires after many years of ill-fitting Barely There bras and a stubborn belief that I was very flat-chested, so most of the time I'm still hyper aware of my bras (the tighter bands, the wires themselves, etc), and it's hard for me to forget I'm wearing one, but there were definitely times with this one that I could forget about it. I'd like to try the SM cut as well, but right now I'm very impressed with the BM even though I'm toward the bottom of the size range it comes in.
