Bought this when I realized I have a small frame and large cup size but didn't know where to go to buy bras that were meant for me, so I bought the smallest band and largest cup I could from a store everyone shopped. If this came in a 28E/F or 30E, that would be amazing because this is so comfortable.
This has a similar fit to the Body By Victoria Lightly Lined Full/Perfect Coverage Bra. The fabric has slightly less "give" because it's mostly cotton, and is maybe incrementally shallower. The band size is too large for me (I should be a 30, but 32 is the smallest VS currently makes). Gore is laughably far from tacking and even the bottoms of the cups sometimes don't lie against my ribs but instead gap under my breasts. The cups would be too small if the band actually fit; a 30E or 30F would be ideal for me, but try telling that to Victoria's Secret.
Still, I enjoy wearing this bra. ...I find it very comfortable. I have skin sensitivity issues which make synthetic fabrics and especially lace very itchy and uncomfortable for me. This really is my ideal type of bra: a smooth, lace-free, lightly lined T-shirt bra mostly made of soft & breathable cotton. I just wish I could find something like this in my size! Until then, this ill-fitting but super-comfy bra is in my normal rotation.

This is just your typical ill fitting VS bra. It is absolutely adorable and of good quality material, but it fits awfully, much too small in the cup and too big in the band. I've had this bra for a while but I don't think it stretched that much. I think the band is just incredibly stretchy and big to begin with. I wish they would make bras in my real size (32FFish).
This version of the Full Coverage Cotton bra is no longer carried at Victoria's Secret. Purchased in 2007, the straps are not fully adjustable, and the cups fit better and have a rounder shape - compared to the style they have now with different shaped foam, different fabric content and fully adjustable, narrower straps. I prefer the 2007 version =)
The band has been altered and the measurements are as follows:
Stretched Band - 28" Band - 23" Cup Width - 6" Cup Depth - 8.5" Cup Seperation - 1" Wire Length - 8.75"
I'd like this better if it had a full band, but this, as well as the BBV Full Coverage, are my two most comfortable, and also most worn bras. The gray one had a minor accident with some bleach (attempted fix with fabric marker, but it didn't hold). The black and white dot one is actually a tad smaller than the gray one in the cup depth by almost 3/8" so I don't wear it as often.
