|Strap width||1.4 |
The cups are too deep for me at the apex, it's barely touching my boob and is almost hollow on my smaller days. They are also too closed at the top like every other strapless bra ever. There's a lot of space inside the cups despite all the push up padding.
The band is wonderfully tight, and fits me perfectly. I love the lore gore, but the sequins are itchy and irritate my skin. That would probably not be a problem with clothing on and if it didn't cut into my boob near the armpit area.

I had been searching far and wide for a strapless / multiway plunge bra that works for my wide rooted, shallow shape. I heard that this bra was both wide and shallow, so I had to try it.
I'm happy to say that this bra fits the bill. The band is snug, comparable to my 28 band bras. The gore is so low, it's barely there, so there's no digging in. The cups are wide enough. It comes with removeable straps. While I like the cushioned, satiny material, the straps do tend to slip off my shoulders. This is partially because they are set pretty wide in the back.
My ... least favorite thing about the bra is how overzealous the padding is. I wish I had the option to remove it. The shape of the cups in conjunction with my boobs is almost, but not quite right. With most plunges, I have an issue filling out the bottom and having the top cut in at a weird angle. With this one, there's no trouble filling out the bottom, but the top is still coming in at a slightly weird angle.

(A day later...) Wait a second! They sent me the wrong bra! I ordered a Retrolution Stayloe (http://www.bratabase.com/browse/gossard/retrolution-staylo-plunge-bra-8515/) but they sent me the Egoboost. It took me way too long to figure this out. This explains why it's not as pretty as I was expecting. Well, the review still stands, but I am definitely exchanging it now.
This thing stretches barely at ALL. I currently wear it with an 8.5 cm long extender on the last possible hook. It's CRAZY! I am too afraid to try to stretch it the full amount because I'm not sure if I'll keep it yet. But only the wings are stretchy, ... that's why. The most I was willing to stretch it out was an additional 4 cm, giving it a measurement of a whopping 62.5, a full 10 cm below the purported size of the bra. WTF? Any 24G's out there looking for a bra?!
EDIT: I can wear it without the extender. ALL IS WELL.
It is very comfortable. I can adjust my cleavage when wearing it, slipping the band up and down, tightening the straps. I can go all out with buttcrack cleavage or something a bit more separate. (Though my cleavage is uneven and weird so I have to go for buttcrack cleavage.) It does give pretty huge cleavage though. There may be some quadding, however. I am regretful that I didn't get a cup size up.
Note: There are NON-REMOVABLE pads. If only they were removable, this would be able to balance out my cup-bigger left boob and maybe even out my cleavage.
