Top of cup: somewhat high (but about alright for me, a 2/5 even fullness) but the cup does not really curve back in, so causes gaping issues, especially if lacking perfect posture and full on top-ness.
Band: great for a true 28 band, but an inch too big from my ideal. Seems like it would stretch out quick.
Gore: Digs in a bit, but that went away after a while, prehaps better suited to a more padded ribcage?
Underwire: Not uncomfortable, but rides down a bit, not sure if caused by lack of immediate projection (In which case I may be slightly full on bottom, as this is an issue with ... all the ones I've tried?), lack of apex projection, or possible short roots.
Appearence: wish it was padded/lined, as I am constantly cold. Lovely colour, but the pattern reminds me of maggots. Hurk.
Slight rant incoming--
I had hope for this. It almost fits, but not quite well enough. This was the only bra in one of the sizes that I can wear that I *thought* would fit me well enough, due to the width and projection, but alas, I thought wrong. When I first measured myself on the calculator I got a 28d, and considering how I never see those around much, I opted for the much easier to find 30c. While that ended up being a waste of money as my tissue migrated, I thought at least I knew what my ideal cup width was. Ha. Ha ha ha. No. It seems that this bra, with a narrower width, is still about half an inch or more too wide. I guess now I only really have the options of either wearing cheap band-too-big-front-too-small sports bras off amazon forevermore or I'll have to make my own, despite not having the sewing skills needed to even successfully hem all my jeans. *sigh*
Cup width needed: approx 3.6
Cup depth needed: approx 8.1 (depth ratio approx 2.25)
Shape: very narrow, even fullness (possibly a teensy bit FOB, centre-full, decent amount of apex projection, very (?)projected, lack of outer fullness? (They dip in slightly at the sides, and cause slight gaps on the outer edges of the cups), close set, possibly high set.
Snug underbust: 27
Tight underbust: 24.5 (fluctuates frequently, or maybe human error)
Standing bust: 32
Leaning bust: 33
Lying bust: 32.2
Estimated size: 28E
