Technically I could get away with wearing this bra, but I just don't feel comfortable with the amount of padding. I also fall out in the centre, while wires go wide under my arms. Sizing down might help. Love the colours and the soft luxurious materials.
The band feels stretchy, perhaps because it is lacy. The cups are padded at the bottom for pushup. Comfortable, but not as much pushup effect as Sonia. I'm not sure if it's because the band is looser or the cups are slightly different. Either way, I thought it was more subtle than Sonia brassiere.
