Even though technically my fit assessment says 'didn't fit', I was being WAY more discerning than I have been in the past with all my push-up bras -- partly because, with this bra, the fit is close enough to see the "nitpicky" details.
Before I say anything else, know that my review will be colored by the fact that this is the first non-push up bra I have been sized for, and I am officially a convert. I'm so excited about finding a style of bra that is more appropriate for my breast shape that I'm a little biased in favor of this bra despite the fact that ... I think there are some fit aspects that might have room for improvement.
First, the center gore is kind of tall, and it lies flat against my sternum on the bottom but not on the top. I'm not sure what exact fit issue this is indicative of, but whatever it is, it must be pretty minor because my overall impression of this bra is that I would wear it every day (and probably will until I find more appropriately-fitting unpadded ones).
As you can see in the picture, the straps look kind of far apart. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be problematic or not. However, I lift a lot of weights and have kind of broader-than-average shoulders for a girl of my (short) stature, so that might be a part of it. Either way, from what I can tell so far it doesn't bother me too much.
The cups are the perfect size for my boobs. They fill it completely without leaving any overflow, and there is no gapping. They also have the same nice soft lining that the dream angels push up has, which really is kind of like "a memory foam pillow for your boobs" (-my manager). With the demi it's not so much a pillow as a layer, but you get the idea.
Anyway, overall, I love this bra, and hope that I will continue to do so (and that the band won't stretch too much) as I continue to wear it.
