I really like a material of this bra: it's smooth and soft. Padding is thin, it prevents nipple showing, but it doesn't feel like a mini version of bullet-proof vest. The shade of nude is quite fair, which is good for me, because I'm very pale, but it could be problem under white button-downs for girls with darker skin tones.
It's the only bra I ever tried which wires don't create any discomfort, so I definitely recommend it to girls who need wider wires. It's not only width of the cup - it's wires shape.
Good lift and support.
For me it's the shape of the cups. If they were more ... open and low it could be my Holy Grail in the bra world, but cups are quite tall and have a shape that suggests that they designed to encase more breast tissue in the top of the cup and in the middle of the chest. I have rather oval breasts which are very wide compared to their other dimensions, so this shape doesn't work for me. The bra lifts my breasts and pushes them to the middle, but there is still not enough breast tissue to fill the top of the cup. And tightening straps doesn't help because top of the cup just tries to cut into my pectoral muscle (but it's very firm, so all I've got from this attempt was a strange bubble near the top of the cup).
So if you are like me - skip it. If you are wide, but not oval in the root - this bra could be for you.
And it's boring.
I'm going to try altering the cups, so they become more open. Wish me luck.
UPD Done. Performed by seamstress, who removed the piping from the edge of the cups, then cut them, so they became more open and sew the piping back. It worked like a charm, so if you have the similar fit issue with this bra and can't return it that is the option to consider.
