When viewed from the side this bra gives a really nice rounded shape, but from the front, it's wider than I like...the cups are wide and shallow, and they kind of splay my boobs out to the sides, inside of keeping them front and center. The shallowness of the cups means my bottom heavy shape can't fill out the bottom of the cups, resulting in the wires sitting lower than they should on my ribs. I also get wrinkling fabric in the cups underneath my armpits, as the cups/wires are just too wide.
Aside from being the wrong shape, the cups seem the right size, and the gore sits ... on my sternum, UNTIL I do "the scoop", and then the cups are too small (I get quad) and the gore sits away from my sternum.
Unfortunately the bra is not lined or padded, so it has no protection for show-through. One thing I do really like about this bra is how the straps are attached to the back band: they are more centered in the back, which completely eliminates slipping straps (at least for me).
I purchased this when I was first figuring out the whole "proper fitting" thing, and it worked for me for a month or so until I gained more bra wisdom and found a better fit. If the bra is compatible with your shape, I can see how it would be quite comfortable. Unfortunately, it's found it's way into my unusable pile, and I'm currently looking to re-home it to a more compatible wearer.
