This bra has the loosest Pour Moi band I've ever tried. I am on the 30-32 barrier and have been able to order a 32 from them consistently for years without problems, but the 32 was way too loose on this one. I think that this is because the band is mostly composed of stretchy, really soft mesh. This results in a band issue that's a lot like the Claudette Dessous, but much less pronounced. The bra also has quite tall cups. They are almost a problem in my front armpit because I'm short and my roots aren't particularly tall or anything. However, this tall cup looks really ... nice from the front. It's reminiscent of Claudette Fishnet's catalog pictures, and looks more like that bra from the front than the really round look the bra has in Pour Moi's stock photos. Since the bra keeps sliding out of my IMF (due to loose band, cups that are wider than my root, and lack of lower projection), and the cup is so tall, I can't tighten the straps as much as I'd like to give the cup the look I want.
The gore on this bra also doesn't tack. It seems to be because of the band issue and the lack of projection at the bottom of the cup. It could also be because the cups are slightly too small for me, or because my boobs are too close in the middle for this bra. I've never had issues with that at the gore before, but I've been encountering a lot more scaling issues since I moved into 30H/HH territory.
These straps are fully adjustable and have helpful crinkles on them so they won't slip once adjusted, which is pretty awesome. The gray here is darker than the rest of the bra, but it doesn't take away from the overall futuristic look of this bra in the color I chose. Which is awesome. The gray is very, very pale and almost metallic in finish. The bra looks SO nice and sleek, which can be hard to find around this cup-band ratio. The fabric neither looks nor feels cheap, and all of the mesh is delightfully soft.
After taking in band, the bra fits great, with no slippage or anything. Shallowness at root is also a lot less of an issue, now that I've also bent the wires at the bottom. The bra now stays in my IMF a lot better.
