This bra is slightly more interesting than the standard beige bra with the addition of lace on bottom/outer third of the cups, but visually, it is still pretty bland. The shape the molded cups give is nice and round, although a bit low. The cups are quite shallow and may run a bit small. The straps are narrow, made from a foam similar to the cups, and are both edged and textured.
The band has two flexible vertical underwires on either side of the cups under the armpits and is also lined twice to that point, which I found helpful in eliminating side-bulge when viewed from the ... front. However, the difference in elasticity between the mesh and the elastic used to make the band means that the elastic appears to cut in to the flesh of the back. This problem is made worse by the fact that the elastic is also quite narrow. In addition, where the band continues under the cups in front, it tends to fold under and dig into my ribcage. Initially, I found the fit quite snug and thought I would have to exchange it; however, the band stretched out very quickly.
Since this was my first foray into full bust bras, I thought to ease myself in to my "true" size, which is presently closer to 34G/32GG. Consequently, I have found that breast tissue has migrated back to where it should be and this bra no longer fits.
