This bra is extremely comfortable. It's a fairly tight 32 band, which means that I, with my size 30 back, can wear it with proper support on the tightest hooks. The cups seem to be true to size.
It 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.
The cups provide support chiefly at the sides. 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 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 design gives great cleavage, but compared to the 9341, it's a great deal more compact and less dramatic.
Though I think it actually predates the Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Bra (9341), this design and cut is much better for me. The cups are lower cut, especially in the armpit, and make the bra more wearable on a smaller frame like my own. It also doesn't amplify my assets so much that I gain a dress size. Though this does mean that the cleavage provided is slightly less intense, I'm fine with trading that for this more comfortable, wearable alternative.
This is a good bra, and a great strapless. It does the job I want it to do, it is comfortable, and I do not need to adjust it.
