I got this bra from another user for my grandmother, but her breasts did not fill the top of the cups very well, as they are very very bottom heavy due to her age. The bra itself is very soft on the inside, and it has very high side wings. The most unique thing that I see with this bra is that the side wings are padded just like the cups are, giving extra comfort to the sides.
This works really well for rounding out curves to create a smoother silhouette. It's lined, not padded, but the "Sensuous Side" wings (that actually do work at reducing the appearance of or encapsulating extra fatty tissue on the side) give added lift and a nice round shape. I love the material. Because of the added structure in the wings and their increased width, the band does not stretch as much as other Soma bras I have, but it still fits fairly true to size, just a little more snugly.
This is the first properly fit bra I've worn. The so-called "professional bra fitters" put me in a 34 B, but with the Sensous Sides I wear a 32 C. It is my current favorite, but I'm looking for something better. I got this bra because of the side support, a lot of my breast tissue has migrated to my underarms and possibly my back. Besides the prices ($50 retail) I don't have any complaint. However I'm planning to try something with a taller/higher wing for additional side support.
I love this bra. It looks fabulous under t-shirts, it's soft, light, and very comfortable. I have it in a pretty blush pink color. I wish Soma made size 30 bands, but the 32 works all right because of the bra's tall sides. Maybe Soma will come around to reality sizing one of these days!
