Benten's armor, nearly completed. Stretch pvc over wonderflex, with craft foam inside for comfort.
The top band is somewhat flexible, so it's not difficult to put on, but since the ends/cups curl inward they cling to my torso well. So in answer to all questions: it's actually in place pretty securely once on. I haven't had any wardrobe malfunctions, even while running around the convention all day and while marching in a parade. There is a hook on the inside of the left cup that attaches to the chain going across my chest--anchored to the right shoulder piece--which I use when I have to be especially active, but for photoshoots I prefer to leave it unhooked, since it's more accurate that way.
(I also do have measures in place just in case anything slips. More for my comfort than anything else.)
