Goddess Alice Full Cup Underwire Bra
Comes in hard-to-find combo of small band/large cup
My favorite bra! It's one of the few I can find in my size: relatively small band but a big cup. Other features: good support, complete coverage, wide straps that don't dig into my shoulders; good separation yet not cone-like, stitching lines do not show through on my blouses and t-shirts, AND adequate side support to prevent expansive sideways migration. All at a fair price. If this one is too modest for you, another small band/large cup bra is the Fantasie FL2182. It's beautiful, but provides less coverage at the top of the breast (if you don't mind revealing your assets when you bend over, you might like it!) It's also more expensive, and the diagonal lines crossing the cups show through on some clothes.

large cup size works well
This bra is supportive, strong, and well-designed.

support is necessary
I chose this product because of the underwire, I've found that wireless bras in my cup size are pointless after a regular laundering they lose all their lift. In my opinion the larger your cup size, the more support is necessary, give me underwires, stays & pulleys if you got 'em.

Runs very large in the cup
Compared to other Goddess bras, this runs somewhat tight in the band (stretches out to "normal" quickly) and VERY large in the cup. Normally 34K in Goddess; I had to buy this in 34I.
This is a great bra if you have more breast volume on top. If you often find yourself in a situation where you put on a well-fitting bra in the a.m,, yet a couple of hours later you look like you have four breasts - Alice is made for you. If your tissue seems to escape at the underwire end - then Alice won't work (try Keira or Kayla instead).
One note - the "lace" on the cups of this bra is not suitable for delicate knits (will cause fraying)

Very comfortable and supportive
I loved this bra from the minute I put it on. It was very comfortable and supportive. Being pregnant and constantly having to try new brands I was very pleased with this bra. I ordered it in a 34I and it fit perfectly. I was able to wear it all day at work with no problem. Due to the weight of my chest other bras will stretch during the day causing the underwire to dig into my rib cage. This bra has never did that. Unfortunatley it is now too small and I am having to order a second in a 34K
