I ordered this in my band size (30) and three different cup sizes (F, FF, G). My usual cup size is G, but like others have mentioned, there was a lot of wrinkling at the top. The FF seemed to fit the best, but there was still some wrinkling at the top while the underwire didn't caress my intramammary fold. The F was certainly too small. The band was firm and the gore tacked perfectly, but the high apex of the gore dug into my sternum so that after an hour it had left a painful red imprint.
This is a bizarre bra--how could the designers have invented something so unsuited to the human breast without realising it? Needless to say, they're all going back.
I loved the shape of this bra when I was a 32G, but gained weight and had to go to the 34G. While it doesn't look bad under clothing, the shape is odd - the apex is about 1" to the outside of the nipples. It works great for my FOT breasts though and holds up the weight well. The fact that it is a smaller frame (works well for my very short waisted body) means I'll live with the odd shape.
This bra is a workhorse. I love it - it fits well, gives the same smooth silhouette as moulded cups, and is comfy. Unfortunately it's too small for me now and has deodorant staining under the arms, but it is a great bra to have.
I tried this bra in a 32G and literally could not hook it on the loosest hook. So here it is in a 34FF - on the tightest hooks and still too loose. The cups are slightly too large but not as much so as the 32G was. This is certainly a comfortable bra but it's proving difficult to find the right size. I just remembered that the 32G was black and the 34FF is nude. So maybe there's a difference in the band due to color, as I've heard can happen.
Since my 4510 style of this bra had a stretchy band, I sized down when I bought this. I can't even hook it so this band is more true to size than the 4510. For the sake of an attempt to try it on anyway, I added an extender. The cups are slightly too large but I am amazed at the comfort. And the shape isn't bad, considering my own shape isn't good. I thought I would hate it. But I would wear this bra! I have ordered a 34FF to see what happens.
I initially dismissed this bra as too closed on top, but it turns out I was trying too small a size. A couple of cup sizes up, and it's now deep enough for me and, if anything, too open on top! (I'm fairly FoT so this is rare for me.) But it's still not super comfortable because the wires are poking my armpits now. Gore soft tacks but sits on a tissue at times (I am super close set so this is common for me.)
Ooh, so, so close. Gore tacks fantastically! Narrow enough, U-shaped cups! Deep cups with immediate projections! This is just too closed on top for me, leading to persistent quad-boob, even while the cup is clearly slightly too big with wrinkling in the same areas.
The words 'smoothing' and 'moulded' led me to assume this would be a lightly padded T-shirt bra, but it's not. It's a soft cup, and headlights are REMARKABLY visible.
This bra is my go-to. Comfortable, wears well under t-shirts and doesn't show under most open neck lines (not a plunge still, but better than many in large cup sizes. I've outgrown the cups, but it is the best fitting I have.
I have only worn this one once so far, but it was not the epitome of heavenly comfort for me that others make it sound like. I think the straps are a little wide-set for me and the cup fabric cuts into my tail of spence a little, especially when I reach straight out. The wires aren't too high, but I did have red marks from the wire ends. It doesn't stay in my IMF, though I have yet to find a bra that does so maybe that's a shape issue.
In general, I want to love this bra. I can tell that it's good quality, and it gives a fantastic shape under shirts. For other shapes, maybe, I would advise this bra. It's probably worth the cost if you fit it well.
