I wanted to love this bra SO badly. 4 hours in to wearing this strapless I am thinking of going braless at my desk at work...but I can't cause its a professional office setting. I am being squeezed to pieces, and this it the same size as 4 other Lively bras that I own and love, and which fit really well. When I first put it on I noticed two things, the band was snug - but hey it has to do all the work without straps so I thought that was a good thing - and the cups cut into the top of my breasts a bit . Ultimately, I think that this bra runs slightly smaller than the other bras in the same sizes. Like an overly hopeful idiot I took the tags off after wearing it in the house for a hour cause it seemed like it would work but I am now completely distracted by the tight squeeze. Hopefully it will loosen slightly as I wear it over time to be better. Like one review I just read, I wish I had been able to try on in store to get my perfect strapless size (since it appears to be different from the other bras they carry) - I'm guessing I should have gone up both one cup size and one band size. It got 3 starts because the Toasted Almond color is perfect camouflage against my skin tone, the fabric is super soft and silky, and I like the 4-closure at the back because it does cut down on the back rolls that we all get. For reference I am 5' 10", 165, and 34D, and I am wearing on the loosest set of clasps. Basically I can see where this would be a great strapless but this specific one is just not perfect for me. Sigh.
