This bra is very pretty and fairly supportive, but it gave me a very pointy shape. I know this isn't the case for everyone, but it is something to be aware of. Before you decide to keep it, be sure to look at yourself from the side, and in a shirt. If how it looks under a shirt isn't a concern, or if you don't mind a pointy shape, you should get yourself an Arabella without hesitation. If these are concerns, you should probably try one anyway. It is a beautiful bra worth trying on. I wanted to love to so much that I kept putting it on hoping it would suite me better.
In the end, I returned it. I could have kept it as a " wear about the house" bra, but the single layer of mesh isn't quite as supportive as the double layer in bras like the Cleo Lucy, and it wasn't as soft either. I think the thick seems on such thin fabric might be partially responsible for the shape issue. The embroidery is fairly heavy and shows through as well. There are enough pretty and functional bras that I couldn't justify keeping one that was just pretty.
It is worth a try, but certainly not perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Has the band size increased on this bra?

I am a 32D. Up until @ a year ago the band on this bra was very snug, and I could wear it on the outermost hooks and have the perfect fit, and gradually move to the middle and then innermost row of hooks as the band stretched over time. The last few of these I ordered, I have to wear on the innermost hooks in order to get the same fit, which doesn't allow for the band stretching over time. If I were to order a smaller band size, should I order one cup larger or do I keep the same cup size? Thanks so much!
Go down a band size, and up a cup size to maintain the same volume.

Should the center be touching the center of my chest?

I ordered a 36G and I notice that the center of the bra doesnt sit against my chest like other bras. I did however notice in the description pictures that the bra sits on the chest of the smaller framed women but the full figure female's bra doesn't sit flat in the center of her chest.

Is this a bra that when you are full figure you shouldn't expect it to rest on the center of the chest? I'm not full figured but my breasts are large hence the size G cup!

Otherwise the bra seems to fit very well and is pretty comfortable compared to others once you break it in.

Thanks in advance!
The center gore of a well fitting bra will always sit against your body, it's one of the signs that it fits... or doesn't. If you aren't full figured, you probably aren't a 36 band size. (You shouldn't add to your underbust measurement to get your band size.) The center gore might be protruding because the cups are too small, the band is too big, or both.

You might want to check out brands like Freya, Panache, and Curvy Kate which have better sizing options. They are uk sizes, so check out the size charts.

I tried to make this bra fit before I realized that everything I knew about sizing was wrong. I wear a UK 34G ( generally), which is a US 34I. My chest is not remotely huge, as conventional wisdom ( in the US at least) would have you believe. :)
