Wow, just wow. I did not expect much from a L7 ($10) bra on eBay, from a little known brand. Actually, I only bought it because I wanted to try the aqua vertical seamed 1/2 cup (which fits very differently) & it was free shipping.
I'm usually a 36GG but this was only available in 40, so I thought: Eh, might make a good sleep bra. Turns out the band runs small but cups do not, so this fits like a snug-38G. It is well made, & a brilliant design. Really! It is the ONLY softcup I've ever seen that actually gives separation. I'm serious. I took pix ... because I couldn't believe it. Plus the keyhole makes it breathable - & pretty. As do the embroidery touches. The sides are not too high, definitely not 'a lotta bra', but it has a 4 hook back. The straps are soft but not huge. And the microfiber fabric is buttery soft.
So: comfort, construction, fit, price: all phenomenal. But the shape? It's good. 8/10 good. Not boosted up, harsh Panache underwire good, but 'your natural shape, only better' good. Gently lifted & centered, with my natural medium-set separation intact. Not sure it's evident from the pix, but I am moderately full-on-top. The cup accommodated that with zero double-bubble or smooshing.
I am kicking myself for not buying more. It who knows what will work when you try a new brand?
