This bra runs tighter in the band than my 36J - Freya » Lauren Balcony Bra (4823) , despite being marked a band size larger. It also runs even bigger in the cup, with a lot of the usual large-cup Freya problems.
I have empty space in the front near the center gore, my breast tissue is pushed towards my armpits in cups with apexes significantly towards the sides, and the side of the bra cuts into the front my my underarm. I have a lot of wrinkling at the underside of the cup; possibly because this model runs shallower than I need. This is also ... the only bra where I've ever needed to bend the wires narrower, as I have a lot of tissue under my arms. Since it's about a full cup size larger than I need, I'll be altering this bra to more closely match the shape of my Cleo bras, which fit much better.
All of that said; this is a very pretty bra on the hanger. It's a matte black satin with embroidered circles, trimmed with black and carnation-pink lace, plus cute pink bows with black polka dots. In smaller sizes that fit a little better, this bra must be adorable.
