Decided to cut the tags and keep it for a while.
Wore it for an 8-hour actual physical work day.
WIRE: a little squishy, but comfy. Definitely has a squidgey squeak problem when I move a lot.
CUP: Not quite the immediate depth I need, as evidenced by the pull lines on the outer layer of fabric. When the bra shimmies down a smidge, the apex fits my apex better and the rest of the cup (top part) does, too. The cup is amazingly comfy, I assume because the fabric is (or is like) cotton. There is the usual gaping at the strap attachment point. Oddly, the elastic along the top ... quads a bit after I sc/swoop and the lace edge on the outside flares out. I think this bra expects my boobs to have a lot more upper projection, so the cup fit isn't right. It is acceptable for me right now.
STRAPS: Obviously way too wide-set, but does not cut into underarm like most bras. I know it doesn't fit right and when I put my arms forward, the gape on the outside upper portions of breasts is silly-huge, but at this point in the day it does not hurt me whatsoever, so I'm accepting it.
BAND: Slightly too big. Ever so slightly. I hooked the top hook 1 column in and it helped. I normally would wear it on the middle set (with the top hook on the inside set), but on a day like today when I'm moving a lot, the other setting was a better choice.
Aesthetics: I think it's pretty in a cotton lace sort of way. Not in a sexy way.
Overall: This was my first wear. I will keep this bra.
I really wish it came in a 34GG.
SECOND WEARING: Not so sure about this side sling thing. It does weird things to my boobs when I raise my elbows over my head. The wires are a little too easily squidged wider than I need, too.
Maybe it's the wire being too wide that is causing the side/under sling thing to cut INTO my boobs instead of lying on their surfaces and supporting? So if the wire were in the correct spot on the outsides, the sling part would follow the angle of my boob instead of the angle of my ribcage?
Still. It's incredibly comfy for not really fitting correctly.
After more wearings and a little weight loss:
I wear it, sometimes, but it's just not right for me. I have to wear it on the tightest hooks most of the time now and that moves the cups outward too much, making the wideset-strap issue more of a problem for me.
I am going to try to get this in a 34G to see if it solves my problems. This size I'll list now and keep as a backup for emergencies until it sells.
