This is the Sculptresse version of the Panache 5021, and the fit is more or less identical. It offers the same great coverage and runs a bit snug in the band, just like the 5021, so if you're between band sizes you should go with the larger size.
The biggest difference between this style and the 5021 is the lack of foam padding in the cups. This makes the 9441 a lifesaver for ladies with full breasts or short torsos because the absence of the foam padding (especially at the top) keeps the bra from gapping away. Instead, it hugs completely and tightly across the top of the breast. For strap sticklers, note that the racerback on the 9441 seems to be attached a bit higher than on the 5021, but consequently offers more strap adjustment.
All in all, this is a very comfortable bra that will benefit the bustier among us who are looking for a great workout bra.
