Okay, I am short, busty and short-waisted. (5'3", 110 lbs, a 32/34 C or D) I don't think I have ever had a top of this sort that did NOT need the straps shortened in order for the bust support to work. Which I need -- I'm almost 47 years old. 'Nuff said. Aside from the fact that I have to painstakingly shorten the straps and I am not a good sewer (I wore it once for yoga and heck, it would have made a great PlayBoy photo shoot -- cleavage a-plenty) this top has all the right stuff: the shirring is lovely; the band beneath the bust adds excellent support, I got the orchid color and it is beautiful. Soft and comfortable. I got the small (I don't like to order XS even when I think it will be more supportive in the chest because then it gets skin tight, which I don't like.) I think the key to the nice look is that the shirring is not purely decorative -- it actually serves to SEPARATE the breasts a bit -- why all athletic top makers do not understand the importance of separation is beyond me. You can send a man to the moon but cannot construct a soft inner bra that lifts and separates? It is laughable, but sad for those of us who need it. Is there anything worse than buying an expensive sport top with a "built-in shelf bra" and then have to wear a sports bra under it? The discomfort is severe. Overall, I could never wear this top for anything but yoga, but that is what I do most of. Yum!
