One of the few flattering things I can say about this bra is that it completely encases my breast tissue and it is comfortable. I like full-cup bras for daily wear, but I feel no more supported in this bra than I do in my halfcup or balconette bras, and certainly far less lifted. It is a rather dowdy bra in appearance, and I look dowdy when I wear it, as the shape it gives is much more saggy than I like (a "blue" shape). I feel lumpy and fat when I wear it, so I keep it for around the house or under sweaters.
The ... band stretched out quickly. After about one month of use (wearing about once every 5 days) I had to move to the second set of hooks. The center gore is too wide for me, which means that it isn't possible for it to lie flat - one wire will always be angled.
It is important to note that the measurements of the bra were made in early January 2013 and the bra was purchased in late October 2012. The band measurement WILL show stretching!
Update (February 2013): I am now wearing this on the innermost set of hooks, about three months after purchase with wearing it about once a week (and handwashing after each time it is worn). And, to be honest, the band is still too big; if it had 5 or 6 rows of hooks the band would be comfortable. I am not impressed with this, especially compared to my other bras which had heavier use and didn't need to be moved to the middle hooks until about 4.5 months after purchase. This bra is now for weekends around the house only.
