Once I put this on the first thing I felt was the under wire cutting unto my sternum and everywhere else. Ow... my ribs! That tends to happen to me when there's no padding.
The cups gap on the top of my bigger breast, unless I pull the straps tight but that just cuts my armpits off. The band cuts into my flesh and it almost rips the hooks out when I have it on the biggest size (if that makes sense). But I'm wondering if thats what good fitting bands do... I wouldn't know, I've been wearing 32/34's. It does support my breasts better.
Band: Nice and firm! I really should have ordered a 30G, because this fits better with an extender. Cup: The embroidery makes it stiff but not really itchy. The color and embroidery are slightly visible under a medium weight, white t-shirt. Fits me pretty well, though I feel like the shape is a little flat. This may be due to... Underwires: STRETCH. They come up mid-armpit before I fasten the band, which is slightly wider than perfect. And then, when I fasten the band, they stretch to the point that they're nearly wrapping around my back! When I use an extender, this isn't quite as extreme, but they still distort to be wider than is comfortable. The wires and wings come up very high as well, which just adds to the discomfort.
I knocked the quality and comfort scores down largely because the wires have issues.
