I think this bra would work better for smaller breasts (smaller than an H cup---maybe a D or lower). This is a balconette, so I expected more exposure (in fact, I was hoping for it!), but the mesh on the demi cups is so soft that it doesn't provide much in the way of containment. So my breasts were bulgy in the areas under the mesh, which looks weird from the sides, and with the bulging, that pulls the underwire away from the chest a little bit. Another problem related to this is that there are no images of how the style changes in the larger sizes. The underwire comes up much higher, and the arm and back straps much wider. This is to be expected, but it makes for a less attractive bra.
I do think the straps were very comfortable, however, and the fabric was pretty soft. I do think this compromises the support, but it has a nice feel.
This bra is not nearly as good a fit as the Panache Tango II (style 3251), which is not as pretty but offers more support.
