This came from Breakout Bras, from an endless series of returning and having another bra sent and returning and having another bra sent. I was on the fence about keeping it because I can poof over the top a bit, but I did keep it and discovered that the poofing didn't always happen, so I figure it's hormonal.
The bra is exceedingly comfortable, and cute. Because it is lime green with white polka dots, it is visible under some shirts...
The bra does give a fair amount of forward projection. When I first got into this whole figuring out the better size for myself, I didn't like this, but I like it better now. It does mean that some shirts are harder to wear though. I think that years of wearing the wrong size minimizer migrated tissue towards the sides and bras like this are helping put it back where it belongs.

This bra is supportive and comfortable. I have gone down a few cup sizes so it no longer fits.

So far - this is the best fitting bra that I've ever had. I hope to get my hands on more bras that fit this well and maybe even better!
I have projected, pendulous, full on bottom breasts with, i think, short roots (& not sure if narrow or not).
The band is elastic and comfortable yet does its job pretty well. Overall stays in place throughout the day. As it stretches the back tends to ride just a little bit upwards but that's just if I have to be nitpicky about it (it's not too bad). It has stretched ... a little bit since I bought it but I'm not yet on the tightest set of hooks (though i could soon be there). Maybe a 28 band would've been better in the long run but this one functions well enough, too.
The straps are an OK length for me. The best thing: that they're adjustable all the way. Also, another thing I noticed: even if it's said (and true) that 80% of the support should come from the band, ...the straps are very important on this one, too. If I take the straps off of my shoulders, my boobs sag a lot, with the bra moulding to their natural shape and placement. If the straps become too loose, my boobs also sag a bit. BUT the good thing: the wires still stay in place! That could be because this is the first bra with enough projection for me.
The cups are of a good volume, maaaybe a tad too large on the top part (there are some minor wrinkles there, especially near the center panel). Otherwise, I get good support from this bra. The shape is a bit new to me being pretty projected and a little more pointy than what I'm used to, but it's comfortable and fits well, and uplifts my boobs really well, which is the main reason why I love it. I've learned to like the shape it gives me looking from the side. Though maybe I'd still prefer a shape that's a little more rounded when I look for a new bra.
The wires are just about the perfect width. I thought that maybe I could go even narrower, but I tried drawing two dots: on the inner and outer sides of my breast roots and looked at where the wires are sitting. Concluded that the wires on this bra align pretty much perfectly with my roots. So yay, it's a good fit.
The center gore sits comfortably at my sternum. The right wire tends to shift away from my sternum a little bit but I think that's probably because my right breast is a tad larger than my left one.
Overall, lovely fit, lovely look. I believe I could find something even better (a slightly tighter band and with cups that don't wrinkle at the top), but for now, this is my favorite bra.

Very pretty bra but I'm more of a 28H, sadly. Otherwise this is perfect.

Cups were too small, band was too big. Meh.

This is the peacock version and I love the color and the combination with the beige trim, bows and dots. It's calm and pretty.
I'm confused by the fit. The wire is rather wide going by the numbers, but it's still too narrow for me personally. It could be a matter of wire shape, as most of the width comes near the top of the wire, while the bottom of the U is narrow. The cup is very projected and rather short.

Band fit comfortably, but center gore didn't quite sit against my sternum. This is probably due to the cups being too small, resulting in quad-boob and an overly pointy shape. The wires are lined in a soft material, and the mesh fabric seemed comfortable while I was trying it on. I also like the styling of the black material with tan polka dots and trim. The straps are extremely long, and I had to adjust them to the point where the slider sat on the top of my shoulder which could look weird under some tops and/or be uncomfortable while wearing a backpack.
Can't judge long-term comfort or durability, as I plan to return it.
