The only thing I really like about this bra is it offers great support WITH straps and moderate support without straps, making it pretty versatile. However, it doesn't fit me terribly well, and as a strapless bra requires constant tugging up to maintain any sort of lift/keep the band from slipping. I think part of this is due to the weight of the padding, and the fact that it's a VS bra and therefore does not fit me as well as I'd like (they don't care 30DD or 28E, which I think is closer to my actual size)

Surprisingly enough, I like this bra precisely because of the separation that looks so dubious (at least, that I was skeptical about as a slightly small/pointy boob-haver) but this is one of the only bras I own where the gore (admittedly there isn't much of one, it's more like a padded underwire) fits flat against my sternum. Gives good lift and support but the racerback-style straps are a MAJOR pain in the ass. Unfortunately if I wear it with the straps attached normally (straight-on), they are WAY too long.

Love this bra! So so comfortable.

I bought this bra during a sale being as I had been lusting over it since it came out.
It's a typical, fully padded (but very soft, not stiff), push up VS bra. Additional features are flower crystals on the cups, velvet straps, a racerback button, and the tulle+tulle bow in back.
Cup width is fine for me, but being a 32C, I quad a bit. Unfortunately. I saw a 32DD available, but had been wearing 32D's at the time, and thought I was closer to 32C, so might as well.
In reality, this bra runs pretty big and wide, similar to the butterfly strappy racerback I own in 32DD ... (haven't added yet).
With that said, I likely would have done well in 32D, if only I could have found one.
VS recently started sizing people accurately (or as much as they could I guess?), and I heard countless girls being sized 32D this past winter, so finding 32D's was pretty difficult at the time because they weren't stocking up, but literally everyone I heard being sized was 32D or 32DD. My bf even saw a few girls on FB posting things like "just got sized as 32D. Wat." A few times.
Lol so these were pretty impossible to find.
Anyway, I don't wear this often, as it's not a good fit. I will wear it with low back tops though.
I even wore this to my VS intetview (sigh), and received countless compliments on it throughout the day at the mall.
Aesthetically, this is a really nice bra. The band is also firmer than most VS 32's.
Projection is also there, but width included.. which is why I think this runs pretty big. The 32DD wrapped around under my armpits.

This bra is an absolutely tiny 32 and I love it that way! The long line is very comfortable, as are the cups. Unfortunately, the cups are just way too small for me. The underwire floats with the gore about an inch above where my breasts stop. The fabric is fairly firm. If this was my proper cup size it would be wonderful. I believe the cups on this run quite small so order up a size (or two)

I have wide, shallow breasts that are conical in shape, and I am fairly muscular.
I recently found a friend who can alter bras. She altered my B.tempt'd By Wacoal B.wow'd Push Up Bra (958187) from a loose 30D to a proper 28DD (I forgot how much of a difference that makes). This opened up a world of possibility to me.
Given my experiences, I'm surprised I walked into VS at all, let alone try on some bras. But this one was on sale, so I figured why not. Imagine my surprise when it ended up fitting surprisingly well.
The cups are very comfortable. They ... are wide enough for me, and are generally a good fit. There is a push-up pad in the bottom; I'd normally call it a large push-up pad if this were any other brand, but I know VS has some bras with larger ones. I'm realizing that my breasts are shaped so that they fit into American bras with push-up pads surprisingly well. There's a smooth curve across the top of the cup, it doesn't cut in or gap.
The band is really flimsy. It's very thin, and stretches quite a bit. However, it's a bit on the tight side for a 32 band. I'd say it's somewhere between a 30 and 32. The straps are kinda goofy, they're split all the way (you'll have to see the pictures when I get them up), but they're fully adjustable. The straps are perhaps just a smidgeon too wide, but I know that'll be fixed when I get the band shortened.

This was the first bra I got experimenting with different sizes. All my life I had been told I was a 34B, so I got this bra and it actually felt a lot better! Still not the right size, but a good step toward it.
It was pretty silky and comfortable. No tag, no frills, just silky smooth all around. The padding is pretty thick and it stretches out a lot. The underwires are pretty stiff and I'm noticing recently that the underwires are a bit uncomfortable, but I have had this bra a while.

This bra is a bad fit all around. I bought it used and the band is stretched out. Fits more like a 34 then a 32. The cups squish me and the straps don't adjust enough to give me any lift. Wearing a stretched out sports bra is more comfortable.

I still recommend this bra to ladies seeking out a lot of "oomph" and size for special occasions. However, the size range for this is extremely limited, but you can take in the band to any length because there are an infinite amount of hooks where you can hook your straps to in the back.
However, no way in heck is this bra worth the $50+ that it retails for...It's just not practical.

This bra isn't the correct size for me. It has stayed up when worn strapless, but I may have been pulling it back up at some point. I also have been wearing it on the tightest band since the beginning. It's not the best fit since the gore doesn't lie flat and the cups dig into my armpit fat.
