    I have this in "berry"/dark fuschia. This bra gives the most uplift and COAP effect Ive ever had with a bra, helped by the fact that this is one if not two cup sizes too small on me and shallow.

    I also own the ritzy babydoll in the black+blush colourway in the same size and it, for some reason, is slightly slightly roomier. This bra is slightly narrower, shorter, shallower, and overall smaller depth-wise in the cups (very slightly, but when all the dimension reductions are compouded it makes a big difference) than the babydoll. This bra's band seems the same as the babydoll's band, but a little ... firmer, most likely just due to it being new.

    The cups are open on top so this bra visually appears to fit me since I don't quad. But I would not wear this out as half of my chest is out of the cups so the support isn't ideal (although that uplift...). The wires are firm so when the band is stretched it doesn't distend the wires. If you've tried Tease Me, this similarly shaped but more wearable and less crazy shallow.

    I recommend this to FOT, but consider sizing up in cups (unless you plan to purchase as a boudoir item).

    Me: tall roots reaching collarbone, very close-set (touching), average to narrow width, shallow, splayed east-west, FOT or even (unsure), centre-full horizontally. Measurements: 26" snug UB and 34" leaning bust.

    The bra is very narrow and cups are short, the back is larger than I'd like it to be. The size is too small, but the cups gape due to their shape and too separated straps.

    Is this bra best for someone who is upper full? 'Cause I can't fill it. I would consider myself to have even fullness (but shallow tall roots), and I thought that might mean I can wear something for upper fullness or bottom fullness? (I guess I was wrong, haha) The cups gape at the top a bit, they don't lie flush against my skin, instead they just go straight up a bit. It's worse on my left side (which is weird as that one's bigger, I guess it's wider but less upper full?) and is almost passable on my right side. The width is actually ok at 4.8, ... and is better than the andorra full cup I have (4.9) but I feel prehaps I could need something a little narrower as I have issues with there being some empty space at the bottom outer edges of the cup, like with the andorra (or maybe it's a projection issue and I should try something deeper than 8.1?). Despite what I put on the andorra (I should edit that somehow) I think I need something around the 8.1-8.3 depth range, as I filled out the andorra (tissue migrated into place quick), but I had to get this as it was my only option of a padded bra that doesn't involve the hassle of buying from another country. I think I'll keep this and pray tissue migrates and makes me magically fill the top becuase I don't like returning stuff :P (Why does all the stuff that has the right depth and reasonable width have too wide gores/no padding or lining/has to be bought from another country?) Other than those issues, very nice and comfy. Just wish it fit a bit better. With the amount of options I have that would theoretically fit (and aren't from EM, Comexim, or wellfitting, don't have the money for those), I'm almost tempted to try some of the bras in my size that have no measurements, but I don't want to return things. >.<

    Edit: no, past me, it is much too wide. You stop that.

    • Yes, one does need a very FOT shape for this bra. If your shape is shallow and tall rooted, try the Soda Pop. It's almost the same as the Ritzy but you don't need to be super FOT to fit into it. My shape is also shallow and tall rooted. I recommend also looking at the Desire, Roxie, and Flaunt.

    • Thank you so much for the suggestions! :) btw, I don't know if I worded that weird, but I'd say I'm projected, but with shallow tall roots, if that makes any sense. I have a gradual slope down from my collar bones but I stick out a decent amount, so I guess that might be partly why this doesn't fit so well :P Thanks for the help, I'll look into those, I was actually just looking at the soda pop, but I was hoping it's offered in colours other than pink! :D Cheers~

    • One cannot have an overall projected and shallow shape at the same time. Do you mean to say that the top portions of your breasts are shallow but you have quite a bit of immediate projection?

    • Yeah, thats what I mean :) it starts shallow/less projected at the very top by my collar bones, but it slopes down, and at the bottom I'm projected with even fullness.

    • Had a look at the others you suggested, the soda pop looks good, but the others wouldn't work depth/width wise >.< to get the sizes with the right depth, the wires would be way too wide, which is a shame. Thanks for the help :)

    • Um...your description does not fit the definition of "shallow with even fullness".

      If you're saying that you have tall roots, and the top portions of your breasts are shallow and the bottom portions of your breasts are projected, then it means that your shape is tall rooted, FOB, with immediate projection and average overall projection.

    • ***edit***

      I meant to say that your description doesn't sound like projected with even fullness.

    • Oh ok :/ I did those tests to see what type of fullness I have, and it seems I'm even (or maybe a even tiny bit FOT) with tissue that just reaches my collar bones, and the even fullness bras i've tried seem to fit me great (not trying to argue with you, just trying to explain better :) ) How do I explain..the area directly above and below my nipples seem to be projected (judging by how I need narrow/very narrow width but deep/very deep cups for my size) and seem to have even fullness, but theres maybe an inch or two of extra tissue above that doesn't stick out, which made me think 'shallow tall roots, but projected' or maybe that tissue is normal and I have normal roots? I read the term projected with tall shallow roots on reddit and thought that sounded like me, now I'm a little confused, haha I guess I should try on some bras for FOB fullness when I have thet chance to check :) (thanks for putting up with my confusion!) It's a shame I can't draw a picture to make this easier :P kind of like this when standing up without a bra, sorry for the crude drawing xD it looks kinda FOT standing, but it's like even fullness leaning

    • Aaand it didn't word *sigh*

    • Your latest description is making it sound like you have a lot of projection at the apex, but you still have tall roots. Regardless of whether you describe your shape as having apex projection or immediate projection, I would not classify your shape as being shallow at all. Your shape is either tall rooted with apex projection and neither FOT nor FOB. OR...your shape is tall rooted with immediate projection and FOB.

    • Noob question, what is immediete projection? Apex is straight out from the nipple, right? And I think the first one sounds accurate :) I drew a picture, but my ipad won't let me paste it on here for some reason...Once again, thanks for the help, means a lot :)
      So does shallow roots not make sense because shallow is supposed to refer to the amout of apex/immediate projection, rather than where the tissue starts?

    • If your shape were shallow, you would not have much projection anywhere. Hence, your shape is not shallow.

      Shallow = very little projection anywhere

      Immediate projection = lots of projection at the inframammary fold area.

      So now it sounds like your shape is tall rooted, with apex projection, neither FOT nor FOB.

    • Gotcha, I understand now, and I agree :) Thank you!

    This is the most beautiful bra that I have ever seen. I liked it so much that I hunted down the right size, 28E, from the UK, and in the black/blush color that I liked so much.

    There's too much space near the gore, no amount of swooshing and scoping is going to help me out there because I have *nothing* there. If you had even *something* there, it would probably fit you just fine, but I have near a whole hand worth of space between my boobs.

    It is also amazing in quality, and just feels really, really nice. It has thick straps as well.

    I really like this bra because it is my first and only padded balcony bra I have in my size so far. Am hunting for some more but they either do not come in my size or is overly moulded.

    I like the support it gives and amount of padding. The design is really pretty, and the material feels good. However, because of its design, I find it difficult to wear under tight tops because the bra patterns shows through the top.
