The side panel is high - not recommended for petite women under 5'4"."
Curvy Couture Response: It sounds like the band might have been too tight as you're spilling out - in addition to not enough cup capacity if it's cutting into you. We suggest going up a cup and band size to have a more comfortable and supportive fit.

Curvy Couture Response: The underwire of this style is wrapped inside through a channeling – this was designed to be hidden, so there should not be any issues with the wire poking out at all. You might be experiencing the wire channel floating and sometimes you might have to reposition it to put the bra on. Rotate the cover fabric over the underwire toward the pad; this should eliminate the feel of the underwire. This style has cushioned comfort straps that also cross back, if they are too short we suggest crossing the straps back and tightening them thereafter. If this does not work for you, we suggest trying Curvy Couture Tulip Strappy Lace Push Up Bra 1267 for a nice gradual lift. Not entirely similar to the actual push up you get from the Dream Lift, but it’s the closest style we have, performance wise.
