This bra is faaaaaancy. My favorite parts of it are: the little teardrop-pearl charm in the center of the gore, the pattern of the lace, the very forgiving stretchy spandex strip along the top of the cup, and the very round shape the cups give. There is some major engineering happening with this bra, bordering on miraculous uplift. I literally have no complaints about the looks of this bra.
The main cons of this bra are comfort-based. First, I'm using the entire length of the straps but I feel like I could use just a little more - I've ever actually had a problem with ... straps being too short but these ones could use just another inch or so. (Perhaps it's because I'm in the 32E and my normal size would probably be 32F? The stretch along the top of the cup helps me be able to fudge the sizing.) Another thing with the length of the straps is that the ring that connects the front half of the strap to the adjustable back portion rests DIRECTLY on my collarbone, which gets a little irritating. Someone who wears their straps differently will obviously not have this issue, I just thought it was a little strange.
The band is also rather snug and unforgiving - I'm generally between sizes so it's less of an issue, but a true 32 might find it too small. The other issue with this bra is the center gore. I've NEVER had an issue with gores before in the past, since my boobs are fairly wide set and I don't have a protruding sternum or anything. Yet after a day wearing this bra, I find that the top of the gore has irritated my skin a bit. It probably has to do with the insane lifting and smooshing that this bra does, combined with the fact that the gore is pretty tall in general. Alas, with great power comes great responsibility.
