This is Gap's Garden Lace variety of the Favorite Uplift bra. I was initially hesitant about this one -- the color, "peach energy" is essentially neon salmon with hot pink straps. (Not my colors.) But the longer I sit around with this bra on, the more I like it. The padding is very thin (relatively speaking) as it's about a 1/2" at its thickest point. Plus the padded area is only the bottom quarter of the cup, and it tapers smoothly into the rest of the cup.
Having only recently found out my true bra size, I've lived in poorly fitting push-ups ... for about a decade. And I had become accustomed to the shape those bras gave me under clothes. This bra gives me that shape I'm so accustomed to, but in a much better fit! This bra has some interesting details, which I will include photos of. There's a tiny v cut into the top of the gore, which creates a rather pleasing line along the edge of the cups. The front of the straps are doubled, and are looped around a ring in the back where it meets the adjustable portion of the strap.
This bra works well under t-shirts. There is a vertical seam in the lace at the front of the cup, but it is not visible under 90% of my t-shirts. It may also soften up/ become less visible after washing, so we'll see.
