This bra is very pretty. I own it in 3 colorways. After a break-in period it became pretty comfortable with some issues: the mulberry colorway is very pinchy and has scratchy elastic; the black/pink colorway is the least stretchy and the tightest in the cup, and the cafe latte colorway has the roomiest cups and the stretchiest band.
It has very narrow, deep cups with a very strong construction. It runs small in the band, really more of a 32 band size, and the band is a bit narrow which causes back bulges. The straps are very stretchy, but not as stretchy as on a Fantasie Florence. ... I would prefer a wider band and 3 hooks rather than two.
The bra holds the boobs a little more widely than my favorite bras, but it's only a little bit, so i can live with it. As the bras break in they are less easty-westy, so don't give up after the first wear.
The problems: the seams are very bulky and show through thin shirts. There ARE seamed bras that have completely flat seams, so this is a negative. All that said, I had originally rated it "good" in quality, but today I must lower that rating, as for the second time I have had a random rip open up in the lace. My pink/black one had several rips and i thought this was a singular fluke, but now my mulberry one has ripped also.
Also, on some days this bra seems to move around a LOT. I honestly think this is because the band is too narrow, so the weight of my breasts is pulling it down in front. I wear the band quite firm, so it's not a matter of a loose band.
Pros: I like the narrow wires, very pretty fabric and color, the non-bulky construction on the band, and the fact that the cups are 4-part, seamed, and NOT stretchy. It's pretty comfortable.
Cons: very stretchy straps, limited sizing, only 2 hooks, minor east-west effect, and the seams are kind of bulky, especially where 2 seams meet. This bra is very visible under a thin tshirt. Then the rips. I bought my Savannah bras at a discount on eBay and I would not pay full price for them.
I wore this bra out dancing and it was completely comfortable and stayed put all night long. It moved WITH me. I was very impressed. If they could solve the construction problems it would be a favorite.
NOTE: if you are having problems getting this bra comfortable, remember that it is a plunge and the center gore should be lower than the underarm area. Grabbing the outer edged of the underwires and hauling them way up beneath the armpits gives a better, more secure fit.
