I bought this bra for its supposed comfort and support. It did not disappoint !
The first thing I loved was the straps' placement: it doesn't slide off my shoulders as my Cleo bras as it's placed closer to the the neck. I didn't try the J-hook yet so I can't give my review on that.
The molded cups are very comfortable and it doesn't enhance the unevenness of my breasts like usual molded bras do because it's not stiff at all.
The central gore doesn't separate my breasts at all, which is not a problem for me.
The band with 3-hooks closure is supportive as it should, without being uncomfortable ... or leaving red marks.
It minimizes my breasts a bit by bringing them together closer to my chest, which is not a bad thing either.
I almost have a quad-boob effect in this bra because I lost some pounds and my previous cup size was HH. But they don't do the Sports bras in my size yet and it would have been too big anyways I think. The slight breast tissue excess doesn't bother me though because it's only noticeable by me.
When worn under clothes, this bra looks smooth enough, but it's a little visible. I have the black one with the multicolored wings and both the straps and the wings flash their colors under light-colored clothes, but it's not an issue.
The only thing I can complain about, is that it doesn't completely immobilize my breasts: I still get bounces in this bra, but I can't compare it to any other sports bra except the wired Panache version I got later, because this non-wired bra is my first sports bra ever. But the wired version seems to do a better job at reducing the bounces, even though it's the same size but the wired is a bit too big for me. I wonder if the fault is the bra's or my squishy soft breast tissue's ?
But as I don't use it for "real" physical exercises (only for the occasional bike ride, activities that ask for a bit of physical effort, and everyday use), the lack of a strong bounce control doesn't bother me.
This bra dries very quickly when washed, to the point that I can wear it on the morning after if I wash it in the evening and let it hang dry in the shower for the night. I suppose it proves its breathability.
I like how this bra looks, although for practical everyday wear I'd prefer a plain black version.
I will buy another one even if it's my most expensive bra, that's for sure !
