Silent Assembly
Zia Contour Plunge Bra32DDYES
This bra does not have underwire, and uses a memory foam instead.

The memory foam is incorporated into the cup so it looks as if your breasts are lower set. Does not lift the breast tissue up to round the top as much as my other bras, though the cup doesn't cut into any of the tissue, either.

Pressure on shoulder straps, straps are also too wide

Affinitas ParfaitTess Unlined Wire Bra, Ivory30EYES
A little bit of wrinkling forms a point at the bust. Lace would cut in but it sits because it is lace.

Inner wires dig in to sternum.
