Not sure yet if I'm keeping this one. It's an almost perfect fit for the shape it is:
+ The outsides of the cups comfortably encompass the sides of my breasts.
+ My ribs are presently 26.5", and this band is very comfortable.
+ The straps adjust short enough for my frame (always a happy surprise).
+ The tops of the cups reach my armpits and not my chin, yay.
Really my only hesitation is the shape. On my body, the apex of the 3-panel cup is at the inner/middle panel seam (1/3 from the gore) instead of at the nipple. The nipple is centered in the middle ... panel of the cup, where it's getting smushed flat while not-nip tissue is projecting outward at the seam. That leads to some inner fullness quadding over the gore and reminds me that these are really really not plunge wires. Granted, it's not much quadding (it doesn't even really show from these angles; I should have done a top-down shot), but I also haven't worn it for a full day, so who knows how long it would take to start chafing. Maybe never.
In sum, surprisingly comfortable. Also maybe not bad for a 70% off impulse buy while waiting for other bras to arrive...
