    About this Bra

    Purchasing:
    * Paid $60 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns (not Amazon Wardrobe)
    * Available in neutrals plus many fun colors.

    Band:
    * Two layers of stretch mesh.
    * Elastic at top of band.
    * Wing support: medium firm seaming
    * Continuous band - wires lower than wings.
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.

    Straps:
    * smooth, non-stretch satin
    * soft (don’t stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * leotard back
    * CENTER PULL

    Cups:
    * 2-seam (3-piece) half cup
    * unpadded, flexible underwire
    * All pieces constructed of non-stretch mesh with a partial overlay of non-stretch lace.
    * Soft cups (no molding or padding).

    Fit

    About me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * ... wide-set (3 fingers width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares

    Band:
    * length: stays in place with wear
    * wings: too short
    * no axillary skin spillage

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine.

    Cup:
    * Gives breasts a wide, projected, conical shape.
    * Wires too narrow (not even close).
    * Top of cup: smooth line.
    * Bottom of cup: wrinkles.
    * Elastic on outer edge of cup rolls and cuts into tail of Spence.

    Straps:
    * not too far apart
    * adjust short enough

    Fit Under Clothing:
    * Seams visible through thin T-shirt. (Not as smooth as the 32E)
    * Visible under v-neck.
    * Visible in armholes of sleeveless shirt.

    Assessment and Plan:
    * Wires way too narrow, yet somehow breasts look wide. Cuts into tail of Spence.
    * Try one cup size up (UK 32E, Wacoal 32DDD).

    Used to fit

    I have nothing but postitive things to say about this bra. Well, i guess one thing to mention is that it does have a bit of a pointy look that can be noticable under clothing, so maybe if you're conscious of that this isn't the bra for you.

    This is my go-to work bra. The coverage is wonderful and it has deep, roomy cups. I feel held in and "locked and loaded"--I'm not worrying about needing adjust my bust at all. It gives great projection and uplift. It stays comfortable throughout my day. The wires don't stab or poke anywhere and the sides are high enough to hold ... everything in without being uncomfortable under my arms.

    I would really recommend this to anyone looking to realign migrated breast tissue, or anyone looking for modest coverage, or just a good, sturdy, reliable bra.

    By the way, the band is a bit tight, I'm usually a 30 and this works for me. It stretches to 31. If you're closer to a 32 ribcage you may want to have an extender on hand.
