Comfortable
These initially appeared to run small, but after wearing them for a little while I was surprised how much they stretched to fit my curves. They stayed comfortable all day and sprung back into shape in the wash, and so far have held up well for washing. They are quite low-rise, which is good under certain clothes but may not appeal to everyone. Overall though they are soft and comfortable, and the lace is soft and very pretty. They are also quite flat under clothes. Very cute and comfortable.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

No good for larger busts
These are incredibly adorable, but if you wear anything larger than a B cup, not particularly flattering. They are quite low-cut in the sides, and triangle shape pushes the breast upwards but not inwards, so they can create an awkward shape. The band rides up a little in the back too when there is extra pull on the straps. Otherwise though, these are very soft and comfortable, and the lace is gorgeous. They'd be appropriate for sleeping in and would be ideal for casual wear for smaller busts, but they are not flattering on a larger chest.

Surprisingly supportive
I have a narrow band size (30-32) and a large cup size (D-DD) so I wasn't sure this would be a good fit, but after some indecision I decided to get the S/M. I am glad I did - the mesh cups are soft and stretchy and accomodated my bust easily. I was impressed by how supportive this bralet actually was. Unlike some triangle-style bralets, the comparatively high cut in the sides on this bralet mean it shapes a little and doesn't squish your chest oddly. I was also impressed by how firm the band was - even though most of the support comes from the straps, it did not ride up in the back at all and stayed comfortable all day. Obviously this isn't as supportive as an underwire bra or as shaping as a padded bra, but for women who like unpadded, wirefree bras, this one has nice shaping action and will hold all your stuff in and make it look natural but nice. The straps are very thin though, and there is some drag on them after a few hours' wear.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Very well cut
I wasn't sure if this would end up a shapeless sack or too short to wear since I am tall (5'11) but I sized down from the model and ordered this in an XS. I was impressed by how well cut it is - it drapes well and hangs in a very flattering way, and the length is no problem. It is incredibly soft but very thin, so nude underwear and probably a slip for lighter colours is necessary. I am looking forward to wearing this in the Australian summer, as it's a very versatile basic piece, and you can tell the quality by looking at it. Not disappointed and hoping to get more in other colours.

Very comfy
CK briefs have a "contemporary fit", meaning they run small, so even though I'm a US 2 I have learned to size up. I have these in Medium and they're perfect. Good coverage and fairly smooth under clothes and the microfibre is incredibly soft. They hold up well in the wash, too. Good quality, comfortable everyday underwear for the price. One star off because they do run small.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Favourite bralet ever
I am constantly looking for good unpadded, wire-free bras and this is a perennial favourite. I have a small band size (30-32) and a large cup size (D-DD) but I wear this in a Medium and it is tight enough in the band while the cups easily accomodate my bust. The hidden elastic in the bustline is the best feature - it holds your breasts surprisingly firmly and also has some shaping action. This is the best unpadded, wirefree bra I have for giving my breasts a "natural" shape while still providing some support. It's very comfortable and is great for days when you don't need the support or shaping of an underwire or padded bra, and the lace is gorgeous. Ideal for women who don't want or need a lot of shaping but want something pretty with a bit of added support, or for sleeping in. The straps are also very soft and don't drag at all even after a whole day.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
