This bra has soft, unseamed cups with strong but gentle fabric for the band, straps, etc. The soft, unseamed cups are supportive, but also take more of their shape from by breasts than other bras have. This gives me a less awkward shape (my breasts are a reasonable shape, if a bit bottom-heavy, un-bra'd).
I've had these bras for years. I wear them for everything. They get sweaty. They get nasty. They get gross. They go in the washing machine (but not the dryer). They do stretch out a bit (the band, most noticeably) after the break-in period, but after that, they just keep enduring. I've found fantastic ... build quality and durability with these.
I do have some issues due to the too-big band. The band rides up, and once this happens, the support is less. I can adjust for this to some level by yanking the band back down (great to do in public! *cough*) or tightening the straps (non-optimal, can cause some redness on my shoulders). If this bra were available in a 28 and still had a cup size that fit me well, it'd be the only daily-wear bra I ever bought. I'll be trying a few other bras, but if I don't find something I like this much, I'll just keep buying these and have the band shortened.
Please note: The bras in the pictures are heavily worn, multiple years old.
