I got this set today from Brastop and I'm in love! Fit wise it's not the greatest, but I expected that (I sister size up, then also went down a cup size). It's beautiful though.
I haven't measured yet, but I have a feeling that the bra runs large in the band. Even on the tightest hooks, it is noticeably loose on my. The cups seem about true to size. They're wide and shallow but not as wide as I had expected which is a plus. It's also open enough on top that I don't have too much noticeable quadding. The straps are also quite long. They are fully ... adjustable, but I have to adjust them more than halfway. It isn't an issue for me, but I usually don't have to shorten my straps much at all, so this could be an issue for some people.
The briefs are nice and are the first pair of high waisted bottoms that are truly high waisted on me (they hit right at my natural waist). One thing to note though is that I generally have trouble in this area due to being 5'9, so if your high waisted briefs are usually high enough these will likely be too tall for you. They also run quite big. Based on their size chart, I should be a size XL (which is consistent with my normal bottom size). Due to availability, I sized down to a Large. The size L is still larger than I'd like them to be. They're baggy in the leg holes and also in the top part of the back. There is a little cutout on the back and the elastic surrounding it doesn't touch my body in most places.
Despite the fit issues (most of which I anticipated) I still love this set. As I didn't really intend for this to be for every day wear, the fit is not overly important to me and I'm glad that I was finally able to find a leather look bra in (almost) my size.
