Although the fabric is sturdy at the sides, it still stretches quite a bit in the back. I guess they designed it this way for a hugging fit, however I found that in my case it meant that the band lacked support. Also in order for the cups to sit close to my breasts I had to tighten the shoulder straps way up. Usually I wear 30H in Freya bras, but for this style the fit was different. I feel like I could have definitely gone down a size in the band as well as the cup.
When put on at the tightest possible fit, I did find the band comfortable, and I could see how the cup could give my breasts a nice shape. So, maybe my fitting issues are mainly due to the sizing. I would recommend to fit this bra instore if you can. However, since I live overseas, I will return this and leave it at that.
