I was asked to try on this bra by members of the ABTF community; Michelle is designed specifically for those with large band sizes and small cup sizes. Band sizes are 38-46, and cups range from B to DDD.
I absolutely love this bra--so much so that I ultimately purchased a second. One of my favorite attributes of a bra is when it has stretch lace at the top (Panache Andorra and Clara, for example), because it works to shape itself around my softer tissue and creates a much smoother top of the cup. This bra's stretch lace is different from the lace on the rest of the cup, ... which creates a subtle pattern mix that I really like. Michelle creates a natural, rounded shape, and the straps adjust all the way to the top of the cup. I normally adjust my straps to about halfway when I start wearing them, but I had to pull these all the way out to their longest for the first few wears. (I have a long torso, though, which may be part of the issue.) The gore is tall enough to give separation, but short enough that I don't have gaps on the insides of the cups. Excellent projection off the wires.
My only issue with this bra is that the bottom of the band rolls up a bit on the sides, which I know is an issue in some Goddess bras. I'm willing to live with that because of how well it fits otherwise. The bra's vertical seams are visible through shirts (see photo) so be aware of that.
