This is an intriguing little bralette with a band that crosses over in front, wraps around, and clasps in the back. The cup separation is therefore entirely variable depending on how tightly you adjust the band-straps.
Unfortunately, only one of the band-straps has a slider on it. Even with that one slider on the tightest setting, the band is too loose for me. Because of the weird physics of this bra, if the band is too loose, it results in the cups being way too separate. The band is supposed to pull the cups towards each other. In other words, if the band is too loose, the cups barely ... cover my nipples. The wide part of the band also rides up in the back. I intend to add a slider to the other band-strap to make it adjustable. It looks easy enough to do and should (hopefully) result in a better fit.
To be fair, according to their size chart I should be wearing an XS rather than an S. In fact, I initially ordered an XS but returned it immediately because a) It was sent to me in the wrong colour and b) after trying it on, the XS felt much too small (in terms of cup size). Luckily Toru & Naoko has excellent customer service and the exchange process was painless.
EDIT: added second slider. fit is much improved!
