I have had this bra for a few months now, and have struggled with reviewing it.
The bra contains no underwire, and instead employs patented plastic "hands" that lift and hold the breasts. The band sits on the mid to upper ribs, a great deal lower than that of a more conventional bra, and is lined with silicone that keeps the bra from slipping. There is no center gore in the traditional sense, and what it does have does not sit on the sternum, but it's not meant to. It is a highly effective, highly nonstandard fit. It is also shockingly comfortable once you get used to it, more ... so than some of the wired bras that I have bought and tried. I could have done with a 30G, since I now wear the bra on the tightest setting and it has stretched. Even so, the bra still works perfectly.
The cups provide support chiefly at the sides, which come up quite high on my small frame. There is no coverage on the inner sides of the breasts. While I'm sure that this design allows the bra to work well for plunging necklines, I don't wear many of those. The high sides sometimes show if sleeveless clothing sloughs past the very top of my armpits.
The bra offers a shape that I have not experienced before. The overall effect is amplifying, pushing the breasts a bit together and projecting them outward. This can be a problem for those with larger breasts, especially if you factor in a small back size. Consider a strapless dress. My dress size, con-breasts, is a 6. With a different, normal bra, it may come to an 8. This bra, however, pushes that size even further, to a 10 or 12, to accommodate my amplified cleavage properly.
This is a good bra. It does the job I want it to do, it is comfortable, and I do not need to adjust it.
It has even held up after going through the washing machine. I would buy it again, and recommend it, but would also like any prospective buyer to have all the facts.
