This bra is very striking and has a lovely vintage feel to it. The front has peach satin side panels on the cups and band, while the cups themselves have contrasting black piping. There is also a large black bow over the center gore. The straps are black and fully adjustable. The band is black beyond a pair of vertical plastic underwires under the armpit which can help reduce side bulge. While lovely, this bra will show through most light-medium weight or light-colored tops.
The cups of this bra have three-part construction. Only one of the seams is visible from the ... front, since the other is concealed behind the piping. From the inside, the seams form a tilted T shape, giving a very round shape from the outside. I find this bra quite comfortable, even though the fit (and probably the shape) is not perfect for me.
The band is very firm even when stretched out. Apparently the band and cup for this bra runs small, which works in my favor in the case of the former and against me in the latter. The center gore comes up quite high (3.5 inches) and does not always sit flat against my sternum, partly because the cups are now too small for me.
The cups are very shallow, meaning after a few wears the cups had developed wrinkles along the bottom that are difficult to get rid of. Furthermore, I frequently get quadraboob due to the difficulty of trying to get my boobs to settle into the very bottom of the cups. I think this style of bra just might not work for me, much as I wish it would!
