I have very shallow, slightly conical/tubular breasts with a wide root.
The band on this bra is a bit on the tighter side. Unstretched I measured it at 21", and fully stretched out at 27.5", so it's a bit tight on my 28-29" rib cage. I think that if I wear it with an extender though, it'll be right about perfect. The bra seems to be well-constructed and is very sturdy. Even with a lot of lace and embroidery, there are no loose threads.
The straps are very nice. They're stretchy but not too stretchy. They're a bit on the wider side, which is ... rare in my size range. There's also these little loopy bits on the edges of the straps. This makes it very difficult to adjust the strap length; on the other hand, once the length is set, it does not appear to slip at all.
The cups are near perfect for me. They're very shallow, they have an open edge, and they're fairly wide. I could stand for them to be about half an inch wider, but really, these work fine.
My biggest problem right now is that the gore digs into my sternum, which is something I'd never before encountered with a low gore. At this band tightness, I'd almost prefer the gore to be about half an inch to an inch taller. I think that it will stop digging once the band stretches out a bit (or I get an extender).
