From reading other reviews, it seems the opinions may have a lot to do with the buyer's age? I am 40 years old, wear a 32D, and my skin has never been "strong," I am not looking for a push-up bra but would like to find something that's unlined, supportive and actually a little pretty, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg (which is what I've been paying until now). I also have wide-set breasts. It's darn near impossible to find a tall center gore on an affordable bra, but this one is great! The gore itself is 3.5", but since the center is a little raised, it's actually 4" from the bottom of the cups. I also love the open triangle and lace details on the gore, actually makes a tall gore sexy! The lace on this bra does not stretch, so it does give good, natural support, and for me it's true to size. However, if you have very strong skin or breasts that are very full on top, maybe if you're under the age of 26, this might not be the bra for you. At a 32D there are 2 rows of hooks & eyes, and the strap is 1/2 inch wide and non-stretch, so it feels plenty supportive for me. Band size is true to size; the weight of my breasts is being held mostly by the band and just a little bit by the straps. I don't think this bra will last me as long as one that costs 3 times the price, but I do think it's great quality for the price point and it will probably last a while.
