This bra is very lightweight and comfortable. I'm not sure if t-shirt bras just work better for my shape or if they're just more forgiving of minor fit issues, but of my order of 5 bras from Amazon, this was the only one that fit the way I liked and the only t-shirt bra in the order.
The band is very stretchy and thus definitely too big, so I will be altering it (I'm just going to sew a running stitch along the elastic). The wires seem a tad too narrow, but the marks left by the bra say that it just skates by on the edge of ... my root.
The gore is made of several layers of soft mesh, so it's very comfortable and it can be easily twisted so that the cups sit in each other without being flipped inside out. (I like doing this for storage reasons. All my old ill-fitting bras could do this, which I miss.) There's a tiny edge of lace along the inside edge of the cup. I find that I always have to smooth it back down after swooping and scooping. The lace is comfy; I don't even notice it.
I really like the convertible nature of the straps and that there's an extra slot if you want wider straps or a wider racerback. The cups are lined with a mesh layer over it. Unlike the Natori Feathers, the mesh is part the cup. I only noticed that it was a separate layer when I saw that a hair had made its way underneath.
The cup cuts into me just the tiniest bit due to my tall roots, but it's very minor and fits great otherwise on my wide, shallow roots.
The OnGossamer tag was itchy sometimes, but it was pretty minor. The band itself is one bit stretchy mesh and looks rather fragile and easy to snag. It may not be; time will tell.
Update: I sewed a ribbon onto most of the bottom elastic, leaving maybe 1.25-ish inches left. The reduced stretch was something like 28.5 inches. It still felt way comfortable and easy to breathe in on the loosest hooks. The band is just that stretchy. I can't hook it tighter, which is good, but I can't imagine the band stretching out because there's basically nothing left to stretch out, it's so stretchy. The running stitches were no good; they popped in several places over the course of the day. The ribbon held up fine.
