I like this bra a lot. Along with the Wacoal Perfect Primer Underwire Bra, this is my go-to staple for daily wear, and I've got two of them (bought the second one when I saw it on sale by chance). I realized that one thing I care about is the comfort of the band: even for a well-fitting bra, I often find that the edge of the band digs into my skin in an uncomfortable way. This bra has a very soft, smoothly lined band that feels wonderful against my skin. It doesn't fit *quite* as well as the Wacoal: I occasionally have to readjust my breasts throughout the day, because they spill out a little if I move a lot (though I also spend my commute hunched over a bicycle, which may be related).
This was an impulse buy when the bra I was wearing at the time broke. At first glance it is very comfortable and flattering, however as the day goes on the bra ends up getting pushed down. The wire does not stay in my IMF whatsoever. I also get gaping at the top of the cup and the side of the cup, while overflowing at the gore and wrinkling at the bottom of the cup. This bra is not a good shape for me at all but someone who needs less projection might find this to be a great fit.
Smooth is the word for this bra! I love the fabric, it's smooth and silky and slightly stretchy yet still substantial enough to be supportive. It feels very soft against the skin. The seamless stretch cups give a natural shape with no lines under a knit shirt. Sadly it's just too small for me, and this is the largest cup size they make. I wish Le Mystere would start making larger cup sizes!
