I'm in my late 30's and the Alysa is the first bra I've found that has fit. My band size has always been larger than what was measured - turns out that I have an "inverted triangle" body shape. This bra smooths my angles and the padding gives a nice shape to T-shirts and dressier tops: no more looking like a broad-shouldered man.
As the other reviewers have said, it is extremely comfortable and well-made; I'll never go back to a non-microfiber bra. Also, as a comparison, I've tried the Dahlia in 38AA and the Alysa is very similar comfort-wise. NB: Though the Dahlia cups were too large, I think I prefer its style more.
Both nude and slate are very pretty, the only thing that could be wished for is more color variety.
Overall, I'm just stoked that I don't have to wear generic-sized bralettes or sports bras anymore. Thank you, Lula Lu, for designing such a wonderful bra.
