This bra is WAY too big for me. But I normally wear about a 28G so thats to be expected though it honestly does look like more than a cup too big on me, I can fit my whole hand in the extra space. The band is actually nice and tight, good even for my 27 inch rib cage. I got this bra because it was really cheap and I want to try altering the cups =)
Band is really stretchy. If I didn't have to return this to England, I'd exchange it for a smaller band. As it is, I can wear it on the tightest hooks. Plus I love it & it's discontinued and I couldn't find the smaller size band so that's why I went with my sister size on this. It's comfortable so far. No poking anywhere.
I would tell a friend (or even an enemy) with similar boobs to avoid this bra like the plague. I think it would fit someone with boobs that sit on their chest with no "escapees" to the side perfectly, but for me with boobs that tend to flee to my armpits this just doesn't work. And that's not even getting started on the strap placement (too wide for my ultra narrow shoulders), or the digging center gore. Also, I recommend double checking the band size (definitely don't size up!) when I bought it, the band was perfect, and it's stretched out now to where it's just loose. Your mileage may vary, of course.
Recommended for: Narrow root, wide shoulders, breasts that are "front and center" (though maybe not if they touch in the center).
Not recommended for: Wide root, narrow shoulders, petite women, or high-set breasts.
I'm not entirely certain I'll be keeping this bra. It is very comfortable, but I don't think it quite fits. The band is extremely stretchy, and I feel like I could drop down to try a 28 in this bra (I measure 30.5 underbust). I don't quite fill the bottoms of the cups, and the tops are a TAD loose. Also the center gore isn't perfectly flush with my sternum and the wires seem to be a very wide U shape.
That said, it looks fine under a shirt! (if you don't notice the leopard spots... the orange shirt is my "go to try on a bra shirt"). Even with my shoulders back and boobs thrust up, there is no quadriboobing.
I'll have to try this on again and spend half an hour or so around the house in it before I decide if I'll keep it.
