After some changes in my body and a period of time when bras weren't a priority, I've gone to get fitted at a store and this is the result. I was thrilled at first as it was significantly more comfortable than the bras I've been wearing before, but after wearing it for several full days, I've noticed some things that weren't as great.
First, the good. It's a nice nude bra with a touch of femininity with the lace. It provides good support and I love the J-hook option. The extra mesh side support is really nice. It's practically invisible under clothes. I am not a big fan of ... plain T-shirt bras, but this one works for me. It's also the first seamless cup that works for me. I like the soft material, it feels like the boobs are resting on a pillow.
I have to say I am not a fan of the full coverage style and minimized shape this bra provides. While it is subtle, I prefer my boobs up, front and center (so they make my stomach look smaller in comparison https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />). For some people this might be a selling point, though.
The big problem for me is somewhere along the lines of underwire or band shape. I'm not quite sure what's going on, but if I put the band in it's rightful place, the lower outer part of the underwire is not quite where it needs to be, sitting a little away from my IM fold. This allows the cups to travel down my body over the course of the day and when they are forced back, say, by sitting down, it pinches the bit of skin below my boobs. In order to prevent this, I need to wear the band higher up in the back than I am used to, where instead of smoothing things over it creates a bulge. This is mitigated somewhat if I switch to the tightest hook, but that is not entirely comfortable and hey! I don't want to wear a new bra on the tightest hook. There's just something that doesn't entirely click with my shape, I think. Still, it's a good wearable bra for me, it's just that it's not perfect - and what is?
