This is a very comfortable bra with nice side support, as one would expect from its name. The straps do seem a bit wide to me—wish they were a little more slender, but one can't have everything. For a non-molded, non-padded, non-foam bra, I was really impressed and am tempted to keep this (or at least find it in the other colourway, because I am not crazy about the black-purple combination; just not my cup of tea, but I really wanted to try the bra).
The lining is soft, though the decoration along the top is not so much so; it may soften up with a few washings, ... but it seemed a bit stiff. In fact, on my smaller side, it sort of triangled out near the center (see photo). I'm not sure if this is a fit problem so much as a "stiff decoration" issue, though this is again obviously my smaller side; it could be easily fixed with a small dart near the top of the cup if washings do not relax the fabric.
The other problem I have is that I don't exactly completely fill the bottom of the cups, as you can see in a couple of the other photos, including the weird arched back one (the best way I could figure to show this with a black bra!). The fabric itself tacks right to me, though I do think there's slight wrinkling on, again, my smaller side. Is this enough of an issue to send it back? I don't think a 28E would work—might be a shape issue.
