This bra has a stretch cup, so the depth measurement is as worn on me. It's impressively supportive considering the seamless stretch construction, and gives a very smooth, rounded shape. The sizing seems to be pretty forgiving - I tried a cup size down as well and it was skimpier but the shape was similarly excellent and it didn't cut in at the top. The band doesn't ride up when worn even though it's a size or two too big, but this may be because I have an athletic build with broad shoulders. My one concern is that the stretch lace feels pretty delicate, and the stretch provides ... the entirety of the support, so I'm not sure how well it will last.
Edit: A few months in, it's still insanely comfortable but the shape is a little softer and less supported. I suspect the stretch lace is going to continue losing its spring over time, so it looks like my concerns about the durability were about right. Tightening the straps does help since all the support comes from the tension in the cup, but this is never going to be a "heavy lifting" kind of bra.
