I was sold this bra at an expensive European only lingerie boutique when I first started looking for a bra that fit and did not trust myself to fit myself. It is the only lingerie store in my town selling bras outside the matrix. I was not educated enough when I went in. Although this EU70E (UK32DD) is a huge step up from my 36As, now that I do have bras that fit I am very unhappy with it and especially unhappy with the price I paid for it. I also just found out while adding this bra that EU E is the largest cup size sold by ... this brand, so they were just fitting me into what was available instead of what I needed.
Fit issues: This bra is just too small. It isn't wide enough. I spill out of the sides. I quadboob out of the top. The gore doesn't tack (although it was way closer than anything I had ever seen up to that point). The cups aren't projected enough so they fold at the bottom. My very pronounced tail of spence sticks out of the sides in a more pronounced way in this bra than any other bra. It's better than anything I had before, but not worth what I paid for it.
Construction issues: This is a convertible bra. You can convert it to a halter and a cross-back. This is pretty cool. Unfortunately, the little hooky things where you make it cross are constantly popping out of their loops, especially while I'm trying to put it on. It's very hard to reattach something at your shoulder blade. Additionally, there are these stupid little bows with beads on the tail that are very irritating right where the straps attach to the top of the cups. They stick out of sleeveless tops. The band is VERY stretchy.
As a t-shirt style bra, I don't think it's worth the expense.
