Soft and stretchy and cute enough to wear out as a top if that's something you're comfortable with. Based on other reviews (of this bralette in different colors) I choose to size up, as several people said it ran small. I don't think that's true. I'm 5 foot 2, somewhere between 200lbs and 215lbs and normally wear a 36H or 38G bra. I sized up and ordered this in a 3x. While it fits well enough it's definitely MUCH looser in the band than I'd like it to be. So only go up a size if you want a loose fit. A chart with the dimensions of the actual product would make ordering so much easier.
