Hallelujah, I've found my holy grail everyday wear bra!!! Thank you sooo much reddit and bratabase - I'm forever indebted to you!!!
I have shallow, FOB, wide-set breasts and for years wore 34B bras. Then I got fitted at Victoria's Secret and life improved when I started wearing 32C, but even so, I still had that horrible gaping problem often enough that I started researching online and discovered that I'm actually a 30C/30D!!! I got fitted in a wonderful boutique lingerie store where the sales associate suggested that I try the Natori Feathers bra, and I couldn't believe that a plunge bra with such light padding gave me SO ... MUCH cleavage and it didn't gape at all!! The 30C fit ok, but gave me slight quadboob after it settled from scooping/swooping. The 30D fits better, but when my body is in certain positions, it does accentuate my armpit fat (I'm not sure what's the proper term for that) a bit with the first few wears. Regardless, I'll gladly accept that problem since it stretches out over time and because everything else about this bra is amazing!! I bought a few of them for super cheap on eBay and they are the bras I wear the most.
I just wish that there was a push-up strapless version of this bra so I could wear with my low-cut/strapless outfits. The only other problem is finding my right size in other brands since I have been using this as my benchmark and it tends to run a bit small. I've been dying to get a freya moulded cup bra, and I've been debating whether to try 28DD or 28D. Any advice is gladly welcome!

I tried this in 30D because 30C was just a bit too shallow for me. The cup is overall too big in this size, but it is still just the smallest bit too shallow, despite all the gaps I have inside the cup and the wrinkling mesh I get at the top. 30C is a much better fit for me, but not quite the right shape I'm afraid.
Feathers is ideal for very broad and shallow breasts.
As a note, the lace detailing on this nude 30D is very different from the graphite 30C. So, the style does vary.

Ah, the Natori Feathers. Wide and shallow, they said, and wide and shallow it was. This bra is soooo wide. There's like, a full inch between the wire and my IMF. I don't particularly mind wide wires actually, and these are quite comfy and feel secure, but the cups being all the way out there makes boob-in-cup placement a tad difficult. This problem is only exacerbated by the fact that horizontal apexes of the cups are really far apart (even though the gore isn't particularly wide). The bra's shallowness in terms of immediate projection and at the apex aren't problematic, but what is a problem is how much ... it cuts in in the center - I don't consider myself to have a lot of center fullness, just close together boobs, and the Feathers does nothing to contain them. My breasts are firm enough that spilling isn't an issue, but, the quadding bothers me, even though you can't see it in pictures.(Edit: the underwires float near the gore, which I suppose is due to the shallowness. auuhgh.)
I do appreciate that the sides of the cups (not the wings) come up really high because I don't mind my armpit running into the bra once in a while in return for the bra not sliding back and forth over my ToS & neighboring tissue.
Well, aesthetics. I'm really fan of this look, so it's a shame it doesn't fit me that well. The feathery part is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the way it runs along the band. That being said, the band feels really delicate when I put it on, so I might appreciate a bit more heft in that department. The hardware is gold (colored), very pretty.

Since the 30C was too small in this bra and I was quadding out of it, I got the 30D. The 30D has its own issues. While I like the tallness of the cups, the cups were too broad and too close together spaced for my far apart spaced breasts. What I really want is a bra with the wire breadth of the 30C and the projection of the 30D, and with cups that are further apart. I got empty fabric on the inner sides of the cups, which is a common problem for people who are wearing too broad cupped bras and have far apart spaced breasts.

This bra is super comfortable - I hesitate to say "excellent" comfort because I haven't had a bra that fits me well before - so I'm not sure what it's supposed to feel like.
I love that the band is super stretchy - I don't like being squeezed, and the cups are very comfortable. I do notice that the lace overlay wrinkles a bit on the right side - see photo - but other than that it seems fine, and it doesn't seem to show underneath my clothes. Even though the lace wrinkles on the right side a bit, I fill out the bottom of the cups well. (I get wrinkling on the other cup - left cup with the Betsey Johnson Intimates Stocking Stripe Lightly Lined Demi Bra (723803) which I'll post picture of/review soon.
The top of the gore sits against my sternum comfortably, but the lace at the bottom doesn't - does that mean that this doesn't fit me correctly? Or perhaps it's because I'm very small? Help help me, please!

I fill out this bra well, and the band at 30 runs small enough for me to use the middle set of hooks despite fitting into a 28. The plunge on this gives me fantastic cleavage. I prefer demi or otherwise half cups, but these can get too low for me when my breasts are at their biggest and I have to adjust the mesh outer portion to cover myself a little higher. The inner portion of the cups stays just covering my nipple. On smaller days, it fits better.
Despite apparently being slightly too large for these cups (I think they may run a tish small), they do ... not cut in at the top edges because the fabric making the cups is very stretchy and the lace softens the edge. The lace is very pretty and makes my breasts look very nice, but it does show through on thinner shirts.
The bra as a whole is very lightweight and good for use in the summer time, which makes it a bummer that it shows through sometimes. I save it for my polo shirts and wear it often. I've had it for a few months now and it hasn't show any signs of wear.

I love this bra! Finally - a bra that fits!! This fits my very shallow, outer fullness, tall and wide rooted, close together breasts well. I ended up getting it in 'marigold' because it was less expensive than other colors, so I don't love it, but it's a great fit. I love that I can wear plunging necklines too - which I've never been able to do before. And I love that it gives me a little bit of cleavage - tahdah! This is the first bra I've gotten that fits, so I'm have a big moment - obviously.
The band is a bit tight when I first ... put it on but it got comfortable enough after a couple of hours of wear. I have a prominent ToS and this bra covers it! I've able to scoop and swoop all in and everything stays in place. The wire also sits comfortably in my IMF too.
I've abandoned all of my old bras - I'm probably doing to donate all of them, like 15 of them, to the DAV thrift store. My old bras were 34A and 32B. So glad that I don't have to deal with wearing those uncomfortable things ever again. I am so happy that I finally have a comfy bra that fits!

I can't figure this one out. I think I'm swooping/scooping as if I am wearing the similarly-shaped Lucia from The Little Bra Company, but that one is a push-up padded plunge. This one is a molded-lined shallow cup. So I end up scooping all my boob right out of the cup! But once I let it settle back into the cup properly, it seems to fit okay, with just maybe a little bit of space in the center-bottom? I'm torn. If this were a $20-$30 dollar bra, I'd keep it. But for almost $70, it's just not quite a good enough fit. Maybe an ebay purchase for me. It's pretty, comes in many pretty colors, and does look smooth under t-shirts.

Both of my "good fit" bras dig into my sternum. I solved this by putting a little padding under the tops of the wires, right in the center. I wonder if this has something to do with the way my body is shaped. I tried bending the wires and that didn't help at all. It's not the ideal solution, but in the short term, until I figure it out, I can live with it.

I really wanted to love this bra, but it just didn't live up to its first impression. I really should have looked up Bratabase reviews first, because I would have known about the cup and band sizes running small. I could just barely fasten the bra on the loosest hook, and got slight quadboob when I swooped and scooped. Despite that I was this close to immediately buying another in a different size, because the fit was nearly perfect, as close as I've gotten so far. The quadding wasn't severe, pretty much undetectible unless I pulled the lace back to expose the cup, and the band was ... fine with an extender. Ah, if only those were the only issues.
Unfortunately enough more serious problems cropped up. My left armpit chafed red from where the top of the cup and the strap dug in, and the band got progressively scratchier the longer I kept it on. I suspect it's my scoliosis that had only my left side chafing.
In any case, the mildly off fit was absolutely negligible (especially as I had intent to purchase the same model in a different size) but the chafing was absolutely not. I'd rather not form calluses under my armpit, thanks.
+Update: Soaked in Eucalan for a few hours and now it... works..? Kind of? The band tightness is still present and it shifts down with extended wear, but the material doesn't scratch anymore.
