Edit: I just want to update after having it for a few weeks and wearing it a few times. I didn't think this bra would work well for me at first, but I've finally had my "angel's singing" EM moment. This bra is extremely comfy and the straps don't bother me near as much as other bras I own do. I made it through a 2 hour bus trip with this bra and the wires didn't bug me at all. In fact, I love this bra and style so much I ordered another S style because of how comfy this bra is and the great shape it gives. ... That's how much I've come to love it.
Oh Syrena, how I so wanted to love you. I think this review might run a little long, since I want to compare this size and the next one up (just fyi). I originally tried this bra in a 65G, which almost worked and would have been totally passable if it weren't for the long stabby wires of doom it possessed. Yes, I had a minor bit of gapping but that wasn't noticeable under shirts. I decided to sell that size and move down to the next one to see if it would fix both the wires and gapping. It did, but not without other issues. First appearances are the same: this bra is gorgeous. Second appearance: holy crap this is shallow and wide. I was hoping for narrower wires because 5.4 (original 65G) is too wide for me but this bra is JUST AS WIDE. It's a size smaller and it's 5.5 inches wide! It makes the bra shallower and I'm really disappointed because I was finally hoping to have a bra with wires as narrow as my roots. Onwards. The straps seem stretchier than the 65G, although I do not have the other size to compare to. They are similarly difficult to adjust but they are set at a more comfortable width. There's almost no immediate projection so I have a little wrinkle. The gore is the same height but in this size seems too low. The cups are deep enough for me without the pads, but I don't like the wrinkle I get in the bottom of the cups so I use the pads to fix that which then makes the bra a teensy smidge small. I can deal with that. The wires seem short enough at about 9 inches and I doubt that these ones will pose an issue. The band is, again an issue and almost too tight. I have no idea why I didn't size up in band and down in cup for this bra (that would have made too much sense, I guess). I think that's it about the technical side of things. I do like the design of this bra and I am keeping it, I just wish I could have figured out how to make it work better. I think that this size would be a winner if it had more immediate projection which I think is the reason I quad ever so slightly with the pads in. It does feel comfy but not very secure, like if I go down the stairs too fast my boobs are going to escape. About the pictures: yes, I am aware that I have those little bulges on the side. I scoop and swoop them in but they don't stay. They stay in the cup in the 65G (I think because of the tall wires) but that wasn't a reason to keep the bra alone. I have no idea why they won't cooperate. Doesn't mean the cup is too small, the next size up is a smidge too big. I am also aware that my problem child right breast gaps a little. I was just too lazy to take the bra off and shorten the strap. These issues won't stop me from ordering more from EM. I feel like I've figured out what size works best for me and now I just need to try all the styles.
Edit: Almost forgot to add that the gore overlaps, making it very narrow.
