This bra is pretty much the exact same fit as my Le Mystere Tisha (955) size 30D, but with much more style and far prettier colors. It gives the same lift but it is much more comfortable; it is made of soft shimmery fabric with lightweight soft foam lining. It is not padded per se, just foam lined to prevent show-through -- all the lift comes from the shape and the fact that the cups are ever so slightly on the shallow side.
As for the band, I really need a 28 (my ribcage currently measures 26 in.) in most bras, but I ... can wear this one on the tightest hook, and I can always take it in if I feel like it. The center front of the band is arched upwards, which helps make the bra more comfortable. The straps are partially adjustable, with rigid "twinned" straps in front.
This bra gives a nice rounded shape but one does lose some projection, as is the case with most t-shirt bras. The quality seems standard. Since it's brand new I can't comment on its longevity.
I love the bright pastel colors that are currently offered in this style. What I'm not so crazy about is the antique colored lace -- it works with the cream, beige, and black colors but not with the pastels. With some contrast colored lace, this bra would be a total knockout. Even so, this bra was a pleasant surprise. I didn't expect to like it but I saw it for a great price and took a chance, and I think I'm going to keep it.
