November 2015 Update: This bra obviously didn't work out, but I've been using it on my dress form for at least a year to stuff the breasts to get a more accurate body shape for draping/drafting patterns.
Original 2013 Review: This bra is really cute, extremely soft, and really comfortable. The fabrics are adorable and sexy at the same time. It gives me a very nice, rounded, projected shape. It also doesn't painfully rub where my arm meets my chest!! (I've noticed that about wide wires; the straps will be too wide in the front.)
When I swoop and scoop, I fill the cups completely, ... but after a little while I guess that technically I don't fill the top of the cups fully. There are two layers to this bra, the top one being a really stretchy lace. So the lace lies smooth, but there's a tiny bit of wrinkling in the moulded layer below it (causes a couple of small bumps and ripples in the lace). It's definitely not noticeable under shirts and I'm not getting any under arm spill. I think that if the cups were a tiny bit less projected it would fit perfectly.
The band is actually very small for a 32 (actually seems like a 30), and with the 3 hooks in the back, it fits snugly and doesn't slide around even if I tighten the straps more. It might be slightly more comfortable if it were an inch shorter, but it stays in place for now. Anyone who has a 29-30 inch ribcage would fit this perfectly.
The straps are JUST long enough to shorten to a comfortable length. I know that in the future they will become stretched out and I won't be able to adjust them any shorter.
This is definitely not a long-term bra, but it will probably last a couple of months. In the meanwhile, it is very comfy while being sexy at the same time.
