Loved these longer styles since I first saw them, but most are very uncomfortable, ride up or leave very obvious extra lumps and bumps. As someone's else said, this does roll up on the tighter hooks but you don't suffer by feeling it or having it show underneath fitted tops - because the lace is so fine. It's not a full width band - the lace lies over the main band. So it's your usual decent 2-3 hook strong band with pretty lace overlayed loosely. Yet it sits beautifully when you smooth it out. Am in love.
Only worry is lace looks slightly delicate and am not sure how long it will hold up under everyday use. It already seems bubbled a little after 2 days wear. Hardly noticable though. Then again, maybe this is normal for lace?
Size is good. As a guide I am a 34DD currently for this and Freya deco's (my historic staple). I am slowly loosing weight... and I love this bra so much I am aching to buy the band/cup size down so I have this when I'm smaller... I would hate for something this wonderful not to be available later on! In fact, this is why I'm on the website... I don't usually leave reviews but I wanted to feedback and promote this bra.
If only I had a boyfriend to show it to...
