I'm finally able to write a review for this! Which is great, because it's just been sitting on my account for months, but I figured there's no sense in reviewing it based on a try-on. So, here we go.
For a strapless, it isn't bad. It's molded and really shallow at the wire as the pictures show. The material used to shape the cups is really stiff, it's soft inside, but the molding itself is almost Styrofoam like or cardboard. It's really odd to touch and makes it feel cheap almost. Like a pretend bra. It's weird.
Despite being some weird thick material (I believe the other strapless was described ... as boob armor? Yeah, that's pretty accurate), I didn't find it terribly hot and sweaty. We've had massive amounts of humidity here with no rain and no breeze. It's gross and I'd rather be naked, but I was able to wear this a few times and not feel like I'm creating a swamp in my dress.
The band material is the same silky smooth jersey used to make CH Toffik. It's really comfortable and soft.
The wires are good, they do stretch with the bra causing the cups to become shallower than they already are. I don't think that's unusual for a strapless, and these wires are quite a bit softer than the ones Ewa normally uses.
Technically, this is too small for me and the wires at the gore do not sit against my body. Right now I'm pleased with that (which is why I've been wearing it so much lately), I have a rib out and the no-contact is a nice relief since pressure causes some pain.
The cups are pretty low profile, they don't peek over any of my shirts at all. Probably because they're too small, but it's a nice bonus.
Despite being too shallow for me and also too small, this is the only strapless bra I have ever had that I do not have to hike up a million times a day. I put it on in the morning and it stays there all day! It's actually really amazing to me especially since I've also been wearing an extender with it (remember, really grossly humid) making the band too big and it *still* doesn't move.
For that alone I'm keeping it.
