I have tried a few different Empreinte Bra Styles. I find the Kaela is a great easy day bra. However the Melody padded is the big sister to the melody soft cup. It is a moulded cup that, for me, is the perfect natural rounded shape to be worn with a jersey dress or thin tee shirt when you want to be more discreet. The band doesn't really stretch out much and the 30 is the smallest back size. I normally take a 30 F in Freya styles so in this band I have to hook the 2nd set of hooks. It runs a comfortable not a tight 30. The cup is larger than Freya in a firm cup style and I find an E was just right. Normally I might where and F or even a FF in a moulded style to not get the dreaded muffin top breast issue. None of that issue with this style. The straps are wider set but not as much as a cleo or panache style. Comfortably wide I would say. The straps are a bit wider maybe an inch, but amazingly comfortable and of a soft satin finish fabric. The cups are covered with a lace overlay that looks pretty and feminine. Not at all like the traditional nude Tee shirt styles we see everywhere. The girls sit forward facing and a fingers width apart at the center gore. The cups are deep so a fuller breast or ones with implants will do well. The gore is very very flush BTW, so much more than any other moulded cup I have ever tried. At first I thought it was not right and would be uncomfortable and even leave a mark at days end, but it did not. I actually find it incredibly supportive.Yes, It is pricey but it is so well made you will not regret spending what 3 other bras might cost on just this one. I have retired all the others I owned and have dedicated my moulded cup to this one alone. I would rather have quality over quantity. aline from Los Angeles CA USA

Before I could even get the bra hooked, the underwires in the middle were poking into my chest. I thought perhaps once I got the bra on and in place properly, they would settle where they are supposed to. I had the bra on less than 3 minutes when I had to take it off. My breast bone still hurt after it was off for 6 minutes. This bra is going back. Based on the other comments about this, I can only assume there is a flaw in the construction of this particular bra, but am not willing to try another. Jodi from Dallas/TX/USA

An exceptionally well-made bra. I bought this bra 4 years ago, then just bought a second. I compared the two, just to see how the older one had fared in 4 years. Virtually no difference. A good example of "you get what you pay for". My favorite bra of all time. GB from Gardiner, ME, UsSA

I ordered my usual size 32DDD. Empriente is superior quality, however, the sizing for Empriente is significantly different. I needed to go down a band size and a cup size. My Empriente size is a 30E. Others have alluded to this problem. I hope this helps anyone else who orders Empriente. That being said, I was very impressed with the service from this company for its information on the website, the promptness of service and clear instructions for returns. I will order from this site again. RHT from Canada

Best bra I have ever put on! The girls are where they should be...like getting a lift. I'm always a 32, this bra I'm on the last hook. Ordering a 30 next time. Spend the money...you won't regret it! Katie from Atlanta, Ga

I waited until I had owned this item for more than 6 months specifically b/c I wanted to see how long this would last. It fits as well now as it did when I first purchased it. I also didn't want to spend this much on a bra, but I definitely got what I paid for. It fits well, offers incredible support and shape (!!), and is comfortable. Cam from Indianapolis, IN

This is the 7th bra of this style I have ordered. Due to cost I must gradually work up to making it my every day bra. The comfort is far better than I would have expected for a moulded cup. It holds the shape of cup and strap very well. Be very carful in the laundry. wlw from Washington DC

This is the 5th bra of this style I have purchased. I continue to give it high marks for support and comfort, but it is very difficult to launder. I searched for and found a lingere bag/cage that would protect it from crushing in the wash (as the garment does not bounce back well) and would also fit large cup sizes. Hand washing does not work for me as I like a very thorough wash and rinse. wlw from Washington DC

Great bra with wonderful support. Looks beautiful as well. I had to size down--I normal wear a 30F but was swimming in the cups with this bra. 30E fits great and I just bought 2 more. Definitely worth the price. motryja from barrington

bra seems to fit well around ribcage but the cup was much too big. I am a pretty consistent size 30F and there's a good 1" gap between the bra and my skin in the front with this bra. Am exchanging it for a cup size smaller and hopefully this will work. mcm from barringotn, ri

Superb fit and performance. It was such an improvement over previous bras I was asked if I lost weight. I would not have believed there was a bra I could wear for more than a half day without the straps stretching out. The cups are smooth under clothing. Although hesitant to spend this much money, I have just purchased two more. wlw from washington dc

I really wanted to love this bra, especially after trying the lace-no padded sister Melody version BUT the straps were not long enough for me. The sister version of the bra 0786 (melody lace) fit fine and had straps that were long enough (with them all the way let out), but this one, I had the straps all the way let out and it was too tight. I tried sizing up from a 36F to a 38E, but they were still to tight. So this bra may not work well for tall girls. BUT I LOVED the way this bra looked in the front and back. Made my breasts look wonderful and would have been worth the $$$$ if the straps fit. So I returned it. Jessica from Houston TX

I liked the first one so much I bought 2 more! Definitely worth the cost. They fit great. No sliding straps and the underwire doesn't poke into you. I don't think I have been this happy with a bra purchase ever! Anne from Spring City/PA/USA

This was an "almost perfect" bra for me. On the plus side, there is no show through (very modest), it has a great lift and shape. I would have spent the money except that, on my frame the straps were a tad bit wide. I tend to be on the borderline of petite and this bra may be made for a larger shoulder frame. I was very tempted, but fit and comfort have to be perfect for me, and it wasn't. I would encourage trying it for yourself, though. Anon from NY, NY

This is an amazing bra. I have silicone implants and must have a contour bra because of show through. Have had real difficulty finding bras that are comfortable and that fit both breasts well since one is slightly capsulated, therefore sitting a bit higher and fuller. I usually wear full coverage contour but this Empreinte is comfortable and lower cut. The straps are set wide yet never fall off my shoulders. The cups are close together bringing you very "front and center" - I usually prefer 2 fingers separation between underwires on my breastbone - but this bra enhances my silhouette wonderfully. It is pricey but the quality, fit and comfort make it worth the extra. I have tried most of the contour brands from HerRoom in my size and this bra is the most impressive. Delphine from Bostob MA
