First off, this bra is /incredibly/ gorgeous. The lace, split straps, and gore detailing are all so cute. It's also pretty high quality, which is what I was most worried about when I ordered it. The lace is lined with a comfy silky fabric. The stripe things at the gore are quite sturdy and made of the same material as the wire casing, and it has reinforced wings and a FOUR hook closure. That's enough reason alone to love it.
With that said, the fit is also pretty good. The band runs big (Maybe even a full size; it doesn't seem quite that big on me but my cup ... fit may be distorting it) and the cup small (at least a full cup size on my very projected breasts, but I think this is going to vary a lot depending on your breast shape). The wires are average width, maybe even a touch narrow, and the cups are shallow and open on the top. There's a line of elastic across the top but I was surprised to find that it didn't cut in or leave a line (any more than the quadboob justified).
The wings and strap positioning (though straps are very wide) work out just perfectly for my frame and tissue distribution, so I don't get any armpit spillage or squidge even though the cups runneth over. (As opposed to cuts like Cleo, where anything that could have been quadboob magically runs to my sides and back instantly.) I adore vertical seam bras, and this is no exception. It gives a beautiful round shape from the front, a slightly flattened side profile, and gorgeous mounded cakes-on-a-plate-style cleavage. Of course, that cleavage is to some extent because I should be in a 30G or even 30GG (which they don't make) instead of this 32F (32G U.S.).
