Construction: The bottom material is a light foam with one seam. The straps are partly adjustable but not so long; I only doubled it up a little. The top of the cup contains a thin strip of tape.
Band: The band is about as tight as Panache; if you typically order two different sizes, I recommend the larger of the two.
Cup: The bra was listed as an 80G EU and 36G UK. Obviously both sizes can't be correct, since a UK G cup is roughly I in EU sizing. This seemed one or two cup sizes too small for me. ... It probably is a true 80G, which would make it about a 36FF in UK sizing. Do not trust the UK conversion!
Appearance: The bra has an interesting feature of having a split gore. The bottom part of the gore is covered with fabric and topped with a bow which is about 3.5 cm from the bottom. Above that, there is no fabric between the wires; it is open. At the very top the wires touch and are sewn together. This gives it a somewhat different look. I also liked the striped fabric. One one cup they took care to line it up so it forms a nice V shape by the seam, but on the other cup it is a smidgen off. This fits in with the price; it was not an expensive bra. The red of the bra is very striking; I like the pinstripes. I am less fond of embroidery, but red thread is used to great effect against black lace in this piece.
