The Esprit is a beautiful unpadded halfcup bra with side support sling.
The cups are true to size and very open on top, and have wide wires (great for wide root shallow boobs!)
The band runs tight. I usually wear a 30 band (29" loose underbust), but I went for a 32 band in the Esprit and it fits well.
There are two downsides:
1) The side support sling. It's made of foam padding and cut into my breast tissue. This gave me weird bulges and an odd shape.
2) The fact that the closure only has 3x1 hook (not 3x2 as most bras), so there is a lot of strain on the closure and the band is not very stable especially in the larger cup sizes.
This bra is not owned any more
