I had to go up a band size in this bra, and ended up ordering 4 of the same size in multiple orders before finding one which was not faulty. The faults included stitching defects on the band which made it very itchy and uncomfortable, very baggy stretch lace on one which made it a completely different size to the others, and a stitch defect in the cup of another. In the end I picked the best one out of the 4 I had ordered, but the band is still quite itchy, even though all the stitching etc. looks okay. When I first tried it on the shape was flattering, (which is why I kept trying to get one which wasn't faulty) - an upfront shape which is quite rounded. As the day goes on the shape becomes worse and ends up looking like my boobs are being pushed in to the centre and more pointed instead, which is not so flattering. My boobs stay in the cups fine when the shape changes throughout the day so I don't think this is a sizing issue. I end up readjusting quite often to try and maintain a decent shape. Overall this bra is okay, but I wouldn't buy it again and am looking for an alternative.
