    Hasn't set fit

    This is a good supportive bra with wider side goring so you don't get as much "back fat" spilling over. Does a good job of supporting my boobs and making them look perkier than they are. Points boobs up and forward but not as much up and forward as a Freya plunge bra. But if you have really full breasts the tops of the cups are going to dig into your boobs. My breasts are a little less firm and less full than they used to be (I'm 48) so this bra fits. Would have given my younger boobs a quadraboob. Also I've worn it twice and the band is really stretching out. Makes me think I should have gotten a 32DDD instead of 34DD. Would give it an 8 out of 10 for comfort. Back strap seems a little itchy after wearing for a few hours. Cups very comfortable.

    Black with ivory colorway

    About this Bra

    Purchasing:
    * $60 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns or Amazon Wardrobe.
    * Available in neutrals plus many fun colors.

    Band:
    * Two layers of stretch mesh.
    * Elastic at top of band.
    * Wing support: soft boning
    * 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: way too big
    * wings: too short, boobs escape
    * Breast is pushing wire away from body.
    * no axillary skin spillage

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine. High, but comfortable.

    Cup:
    * Way too big. Can fit my fist into the upper cup.
    * Wires very, very narrow.
    * Top of cup wrinkles.
    * Bottom of cup wrinkles.
    * Doesn’t cut into tail of Spence.


    Straps:
    * not too far apart
    * adjust short enough

    Assessment and Plan:
    * Don’t mind the pointy shape, but wires are way too narrow and band too big. Trying other sizes (32DD, 32DDD, and 34D) haven’t helped.
    * Need a 30-band, which is not made. Even then, probably too projected.

    This bra is very comfortable. I usually hate full cup bras but I love the way this one looks and feels at that top part going into the straps. The band is very stretchy though. I got the 34 at first because it felt properly snug, but after a few wears I noticed it was riding up and stretching out a bit.
