I have shallow and wide boobs, and while this is an ~ok fit, I have tried on enough different styles to know this one is not worth keeping.
Pros: The band is quite firm for a 30. Most of the time, I have to wear 30s on the tightest hook when new - this one would fit someone who measures for a 28. Also, it is very pretty as a potential t-shirt bra, as it is smooth under clothes (though the yellow is more canary/mustard than I expected from the Nordstrom photo, which made it look more chartreuse).
The main reason I will not be keeping it is because the countoured cups slightly cut into my breast tissue, giving minor quad-boob. This is evident when the mesh/lace is pulled down. I am not terribly surprised, given that it's a moulded one-piece cup, and with my very shallow shape, I do best with cups that have 2 vertical seams.

This is the best fitting bra I've tried to date. I have it in three colors (nude, black, light pink) and I definitely will be getting more. I have shallow, wide-rooted breasts with fairly even distribution (some say I may be slightly full on top). I am glad that the band on this runs a little firm. My underbust is 28" snug and 27.5" tight; I haven't found a 28 band that wasn't painful for me so a firmer 30 band is favorable for me. I also have a rather bony sternum, so I really do enjoy the lower gore on this one.
I'm ... not sure if this bra runs small in the cup, as my overbust measures 34.5 inches. I also tried this bra in a 30D, which resulted in quadboobing (which wasn't noticeable until I moved the mesh overlay out of the way) and band distortion. The 30DD gives me none of those issues while still remaining supportive, comfortable, and pretty.
If I were to nitpick about something, I feel like the triangular overlay comes up higher than it was designed to. I think this has more to do with my build (petite, long torso, high set breasts) and not the bra itself. The pics I've added show some wrinkling of the cup. That's only the mesh overlay and I was able to pull it up to get rid of the wrinkle. Overall, I really like how this bra fits me!

This bra is a plunge style and not made for wide set shallow breasts. I bought it because it came in my band size of 30. Cups run small. I sized up to DD. still get side boob. I trued the DDD but experienced gaping at top of cup.

I was excited to get this bra. I found a boutique which is probably the only one like it in San Antonio. I'd been wanting it for so long but wasn't ready to spend the money til I found my perfect size. Then I ended up overpaying but I am happy to support local business. I was a little disappointed after wearing it a few times. I don't fill the bottom of the cups to well so there is some wrinkling. The band is quite tight. Maybe something I need to get used to after wearing the wrong size my whole life. The fabric near my armpit digs and chaffs when I reach over one arm to the other. It's not as comfy ad I expected. Otherwise it looks good and works. I probably won't buy another Natori bra though. Which sucks because I wanted to support this brand so dearly after learning about its history.

This bra model felt right, though not perfect, even in the incorrect sizes, so I knew I would eventually narrow it down to the right size. This just works for my small, shallow, widely spaced, wide roots shape. It is a good every day bra though the lace is not invisible under thin fabrics such as silk or fine gauge knits.

one of my favorite bras. Fits comfortably, and is perfect for plunge shirts/dresses. Only issue is that the lace easily shows through thin fabrics, and the lace on the straps goes up pretty high, so I can't wear this bra with tank-tops or wide cut shirts/dresses. Overall I would recommend!

This bra is so flattering! It lies flat against my skin, and is the first bra I've had that won't show up under thin t-shirts. It does run tight, but the salesperson told me that it should stretch out a little bit after a few wears. Otherwise, the bra is perfect!

This seems like it would be a great bra is you don't have too much 'migrated breast' in your armpits. As it is, it squeezes the armpit/sides up and out of the band, so I look like I'm popping out of the sides.

This bra is SO SOFT and SO COMFORTABLE, but this size is just wrong for me; have to look into a 30D.

Too shallow and wide. The 30DD fits better than the 30D as far as cup size goes, but it's still too shallow for my shape. The bottom of the cup wrinkles a lot and it just flattens me out overall. It gives a lot of cleavage. I'm not sure if it's supposed to give that much cleavage, maybe I should be wearing a 30E. Regardless, this bra is just incompatible with my narrow roots and projection. It's still pretty comfortable though, and it's smooth under clothing. The top edge of the cups where the straps meet always peek out of tank tops.. annoying. It was pretty itchy when I first bought it, but it's better now.
