Not a perfect fit but it is honestly the best I've ever worn. I don't know what it is about coral-colored bras but I feel like I must have them all. This bra is very pretty but a more simple pretty; lace (with some shine) over foam cups, decorative bow and bear on gore, satin band and edges. Only two hooks which is a bummer, but that's just what Masquerade does. Only part of the straps are adjustable, which is fine for me but an issue for others.
The band feels pretty firm and makes you feel like if you stretch it too far, it'd tear rather than, well, ... stretch. I could stretch it to a little over 31in, but that was honestly pushing the limits. So needless to say, this bra runs small in the band. That said, it feels a bit too loose on me. I could comfortably hook it onto the last set of hooks.
I spill out on my larger side (while being too large for my smaller side), but this is not a deal breaker for me at all since there is much else is right with this bra. I can adjust the cup in a way so I don't spill out as much (or at all), but over time it decides it wants to bubble over once more. Plus I feel going up in cup volume would make the smaller side more problematic, so I feel this is a good balance. (For this bra)
The cups are moulded and not 100% perfect for my shape (as is the case for most people), the bottom part is a bit too shallow for me and the side of the cup near the gore is a little flat. The rest of it feels pretty good though (and is pretty darn comfortable, soft, huggable). It gives a good lift. The gore lays on some breast tissue, but that's pretty par for the course for me. It doesn't stab or put pressure on anything though, so I am fine with it.
Something interesting is that the wire channel is longer than the wires themselves. There is some empty space at the top of the gore and the top under the arms; about 1.5cm on each end, or about 3cm of extra space.
Wire width is very nice for me, at least what I can tell so far.
Also, the bra occasionally makes a creaking noise. Don't know what's up with that, but I don't mind it much.
