This bra is true to size, and fits well in the band and cup. it gives me the same shape and size as a wired bra, which is amazing. the 42D has a secure 4 hook closure. the straps are not super wide, and they line up perfectly with my foxy camis from another store. unfortunately, the straps slide down no matter what length i adjusted them to. i suspect this is because the front half of the strap is not elastic. what a disappointment because otherwise i loved this bra. i had to return it.
