First off: the color. It is not pistachio. It is a rich antique gold with green undertones, pale yellow-beige embroidery and lace, and palest yellow straps and trim. Very unusual! Second, the cut: no idea why this is called a plunge. The gore is pretty tall, and so are the cups. It's a pure balcony. On to the review! The band is not stretchy like some other Fauves. The materials and construction and comfort are all high-end Fauve level, it is certainly a luxurious, lovely thing. And exceptionally comfortable, satiny-smooth and soft against the skin. The soft padded straps are embroidered up the first half. The swirly vine ... embroidery is not thick, but does show under tight knits. The top lace panel is slightly stretchy, and does not cut in. I get a lifted, centered, natural look with a slight peak - not round apples, but not pointy either. The wires and gore are narrow enough for me, and come up high enough on the sides to pull in my outer fullness but not too high to poke. It is deep enough for my immediate projection, and deep at the apex also: holds a lot of boob quite securely. Not sure this bra would work well for shallow girls, though. I own Bronte in "jade" (it's blue, not green) also, and this is one of my favorite go-to unpadded bras for comfort, fit and luxury.
