This bra fits me surprisingly better than the size up: http://bra.pe/XTfX/
Writing this review for when I was a 26FF.
Band is super tight, it works excellently as a strapless. This bra gives great cleavage (especially with the straps). While the cups were a little small, without the straps, it was the first strapless bra ever to not cut in at the armpits area with the straps off. This makes it an excellent strapless bra for someone who has tall roots. I received my bra as a giveaway, and while I am eternally grateful, the bra is defective and the right cup curls outwards. Since it is discontinued, I am not able to replace it.
Therefore I tried my best to fix the issue with the cup, and it is wearable. I wore this bra for a formal, and the mishap with the cup wasn't noticeable, but you can see it in my photos.

Definitely should have listened to the reviews saying the band runs tight. I looked for a 32D but couldn't find it so I went with my normal 30DD. It is ridiculously small. I used an extender with this (on the loosest setting) and it was still too tight. This would best fit someone that needed a 26" band.
There's so much padding that it feels shallow at the bottom

I adore this bra. It is super tight, has lots of padding, and it is low cut. It gives amazing support with or without straps. The straps are fully adjustable.
I measure 27" and 33/34", so I really need a 28 band but Gossard usually has tight 30 bands. This one is insanely tight. If you need a 26 band or something, I would totally recommend this bra. I like my bands as tight as possible, plus this bra is a convertible, so the tightness is welcomed here!
It has three hooks in three columns (finally! They always neglect the "small" sizes) so support is great. I much prefer the ... Superboost to the Egoboost. The Egoboost has a much higher center gore, while Superboost doesn't really have one. This is perfect for me because my breasts are very wide, solid and close together, and with push up padding, they're even closer! I feel a tad crowded in the cups (like they could have toned the padding down a bit), but it is not uncomfortable. Even with the padding and the super tight band, I believe this bra is nice for daily use; I would wear it every day if I had a good collection of them because it is so supportive and makes a great shape.
The cups are seamless and the straps aren't fat and ugly, so it is perfect for tank tops, halter tops, sexy dresses, or tube tops. If you're in the USA, small-boned and want a plunging strapless push-up bra, I suggest going to gossardusa.com and you'll find this bra is on sale. Any questions, please ask.
EDIT: Nothing terrible, but I should point out the cups do cover up a bit more of my boobs (especially in the center) than I'd like in a plunge. So I mainly save this bra for t-shirts, and stick to the Felina Bra of the Year (32D for me) for sexy tops. Just a heads up!

I measure at a 28E (28 snug 26.5 tight) so I expected this bra to be a little loose in the band but if anything its almost too tight. It's seriously a work out trying to put this bra on because the band is so firm..Once I get it on it fits almost perfectly though, it does feel a bit tight in the band (but in a good way since it's a strapless). They're also not kidding about it being a push up, it gives some serious cleavage https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

Well, I reallllly wanted to try this bra and my size seemed to have been pointing towards needing a larger cup size, so when I found this in the 30DD I was super excited!
Turns out this bra is suited to someone who is very shallow and has a wide root. This bra is also suuuper tight and is probably more like a 26F (possibly a 26FF) as it only stretches to 27" inches. As someone who has a 27" UB, this was awesome especially for a strapless bra. It was still a tad too tight for me; if I were going to keep it I would wear it with an extender a few times.
I will really want to try this bra in a 30D and would consider this in a 32B/C if the price is right as the band is SUPER tight.
