I have this in a pretty gold colour, it fits fine and looks good on its own but under clothes it gives me no shape or lift whatsoever no matter how much I tightened the straps ;( so I'll just use this as a sleep bra although the wire and lace are not v comfy at all. under clothes the shape is very east west and flat in the middle
The cups are a bit pointy and I can't quite fill out the bra there in the pointy place so it leaves a little bit of air there. I still love the bra and think that it is the prettiest one I tried on so I will live with the small flaw. (My breast are only 6 weeks old so maybe their shape will change and fill out the pointyness later.)
The straps are more of a 30 and I like that since Im normaly a 28-30. I bought this in 32 because they dont make this in smaller band.
It doesnt lay flat to sternum but I have a inverted sternum so I will probably never find one that does. I think this one is okey anyway, there is not a big gap, its just not flat against.
This bra is very comfortable. It's stretchy, so it can fit both my (larger) right breast and my (smaller) left breast, the right cup stretches just enough to avoid quad boob on the right. The cup shape is quite pointy, I like that look. Two caveats: 1. the cups have a lot of coverage, the cup starts quite high on the straps if that makes sense, so it can't be worn with low-cut tops or with off-shoulder tops. 2. these bras wear out fairly fast, they only last about a year for me. The elastic looses its elasticity quite fast. Still it's the most comfortable and flattering bra I own, I have about six of them in rotation right now.
All over this bra is oddly stretchy. Comfortable to wear, but this cup size comes up small around the top of the cup, even with the stretch. The shape is a bit pointier than I would like, but it still looks good under a t-shirt.
I would also note that the top of the cup is wide going into the strap - if you wear a scoop neck or low necked top, you will probably see the edge of the lace, if that bothers you.
