I got this lightly used, so the band is tight on the loosest hook. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> It's purple, molded, padded plunge bra. It only has 1 hook. It is very comfortable, but I had to put an extender on while I'm wearing it lately. I have been wanting to try this brand for a while. I really like this bra and the candy plunge. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> For the band measurement I measure hook to hook.
I have close-set, wide, round and not very squishy boobs. I feel like this bra was made for me. The gore is super tiny, the straps are skinny and adjust short enough for me, the tiny one-hook band is somehow supportive enough, and the pattern is adorable. I measure 27" under and 33/34" around. Gossard bands seem to be a little snug, so I always buy 30 bands from them and they are my go-to brand now. Great cleavage and support without push-up padding. Seams show under many shirts, which is too bad but expected. I wish I could own this bra in a bunch of colors because it fits me so well.
Very pretty and made out of soft, comfortable materials. Unfortunately, the back runs extremely small. I measure as 28" around my ribs (27" break-the-tape style), but usually buy 30" bands for comfort. This bra has a 30" band, but it feels tighter than the 28" bands I own. It fits well with an extender, but that ruins the look of the open gate back. Would definitely recommend ordering up from your regular band size.
