This is a very substantial bra, but it fits nicely, shapes well, and now that it's broken it, it doesn't hurt. It's sturdy and stiff, which is what I like in a molded bra. I'm not sure yet if I'd want to lounge in it, but it's a very good work bra and tames my chest well.
The band fits true to my measured chest (I measure 31" and wear a 32" band in this style) and holds my breasts right where I want them. I look neither huge nor squished, though there is a very, very mild quadboob effect if I'm not sitting in it right.
I have marked it for scratchy fabric because it is a trifle scratchy in the straps. I expect that will calm down with time. The bottom edge of the band has a rippled edge, but thankfully it's soft and doesn't saw against the skin like some edgings I could mention. The sides and band feel very substantial and durable, and the side boning provides good shaping.
I'm happy, and I'm a picky bra buyer.
