The band is SO small. I have to wear it with 2 extenders and it is still really tight. I bought it from zulily, so it might have been a defect or something, someone else who also bought it theorized that because the band sits lower than normal bras they designed it thinking the ribcage would be much smaller at that point (it isn't on me! its bigger than my underbust because I have flared ribs) but if that was the case they were assuming a difference greater than 6 inches between your underbust and the area only about 2 inches below it... I think its possible they ... 1) designed it with the idea your ribcage would be smaller where this band is worn and 2) designed it with the +4 measuring system built in, so someone who measures a 26 underbust would truly need 30 in this bra and then maybe they subtracted an additional 2 inches to account for the ribcage being smaller further down? That's my guess anyways. This bra is a super plunge, the gore is only 2cm tall & the top if the gore is about 3.5cm lower than where the bottom of the gore ends on most normal bras. This bra doesn't have underwires, but the cup is molded and where it attaches to the band on the bottom is pretty stiff, and where it attaches on the side there is plastic boning. The cups are super low coverage, they leave pretty much the whole inside half of your breasts exposed, they're tall at the sides near your armpits though. This bra also has push up padding, if I had known that when I bought it I would have bought a bigger cup size, the cups would still be kind of small without it, but with it there is even less room for my boob. Cup shape isn't that good on me but I think that's mainly because the cup is too small, I really have to scoop and swoop and keep my shoulders back to void gaping because my breasts are too big/projected for the cups and are trying to push them away from me. The straps are detachable, so you could wear it strapless, crossback or halter. It also came with a set of clear plastic straps too. It's an interesting bra, and I'm going to keep it even though I have to use two extenders to wear it because I do have a couple things that I need a super deep plunge like this to wear them with, just wish I had known about the crazy tight band and push up padding so I could have ordered a bigger size, but I'll make due with this one.
