    I'm been wearing 28FF/G lately and after hearing that this bra runs small in both the band and cup, got it in the 30G. I'm glad that I did, because even sizing up, the band was still very snug on me. The cups fit well, but I'm starting to think that my breasts prefer plunge bras over anything balconette since they are so close together. I mean, the center gore comes up really high on me, but it's still comfortable. The shape that this bra gives is very naturally rounded and gives you a nice amount of lift as well. It's a sexy bra, but the seams show under thin shirts. I'll mostly be wearing this with sweaters as a result.

    I want to like the Charlotte so bad. It looks amazing and gives a great shape, but the fit it just...off. This bra is tricky to fit. The cups run about 1-2 sizes too small and the band is pretty loose for 30. The upper portion of the cup cuts into my breast tissue in an odd manner as well and had it not been for this, I could have forgave a lot of sins with this bra. I may have to sell this bra.

    I love this brand because so many of their bras run tight in the band. This bra is in a 30 but it runs more like a much smaller band. It fits nice and firm on my 26" ribcage, stretching to 26.5" when pulled tight. I wish that Affinitas would bump up their size range because unfortunately the 30G does not fit at all. I'd love to wear it and may still any way.

    The band stays nice and tight through several wears before washing. The seams of the 3 part cups are partially hidden by the black ribbon detailing. The side panel gives kind of a pull together even though this bra is listed as a push up.

    I absolutely LOVE the look of this bra, so when I seen it on Ebay for a decent price, although they only had it in a 30G I had to get it! I figured that buying a 30G couldn't be to far off my size (I was SO wrong), as I read a review on Bratabase stating it was more like a 28G.

    Band-
    The band is absolutely perfect on me, so comfortable, I have never worn a more comfortable firm band! My ribcage measures 70cm tight and 73 loose, and this band is 75cm stretched... so I will be looking for bras with similar band measurements!

    Gore-
    Again, the best gore I have found. I usually suffer from gores really rubbing me, but this one sat firmly against my sternum and did not move at all!

    Wire-
    The wire wasn't at all uncomfortable despite being the wrong shape (I ... say wrong shape instead of too long etc as it came up to a nice height, and enclose all of my breast tissue, but at the lower outside it didn't follow my breast tissue and went quite low before curving in).

    Cups-
    The cups came up far to high under my arms and rubbed my armpits, but this could be due to the cup size being too big. I couldn't fill the bottom of the cup despite how far I pulled the bra up so it just must have been to shallow for my breasts (I assume they are slightly bottom heavy, but they spread over a lot of my chest and are sort of shallow and firm at the top so I'm not sure if I'd suit full on top or full on bottom style bras). The cups sat smoothly on my chest if I had correct posture, however if I twisted my body or slouched at all they would gape, mostly near the armpits.

    Straps-
    I found that they were very far apart for a small band and uncomfortably dug into my armpits. I also think the wide-set straps contributed to the gaping of the cups as when I moved, my arms pushed the straps forward, pushing the cups forward.

    • Stiff bras usually gape when you slouch. At least on me.

    This is a great bra, I just didn't get it in quite the right size. I think one cup size up would have been better. Just a hint of quad-boob.

    I actually only tried this bra on in the store, so no measurements. But it definitely fit me in the ribcage and really almost fit in the cups! I am SO sad that it doesn't go into a GG, because that's what I truly needed.

    I was really shocked at the band size of this bra. It's labelled as a 30G, and I purchased it from another Bratabase user who says it fits more like a 28FF. The band is *STILL* crazy tight, and I can just baaarely stretch it enough to clasp on my 28.5" ribcage. It's extremely tight and I have trouble breathing. Other than that, the cups are quite shallow for my FOB-boobs so I get "Orange in a glass" syndrome, with wrinkling on the bottom. The wires also come up quite high and cut into my armpits.

    The sternum lays nice and flat, and the cups do curve along the top of my breasts nicely, but there is the issue with a strange "S" curve when my shoulders are not positioned in perfect posture. Overall, I feel like the cup ... is a size too big, and the band is too small. Probably best for someone with an even narrower ribcage and shallow breasts. I do adore the look of this bra, and found the material quite nice. The potential is there! But unfortunately, it just did not work for my shape.

    This bra was not suited to me at all, actually it was a disaster with my FOB, slightly projected, and narrow shape. It's a shame because it's so gorgeous! Don't kid yourself though - if you're a similar shape to mine, it probably won't work out so well.

    Pros

    Looks great
    Wide Straps and band
    Creates nice cleavage

    Cons

    Quite shallow (especially towards the bottom)
    Quite wide wires
    Strap placement is very wide
    Mesh on band makes my back look like a sausage, also has a tendency to stretch

    *This bra was purchased after the sizing adjustment*

    This bra runs extremely small.

    I purchased this 30G from another bratabase member because she wrote that the bra ran small and was closer to 28G than the 30G on the label. Since I wear either a 28G or a 30FF, I figured I'd give it a whirl.

    While the bra is sturdy and lovely to look at, I am getting severe quad-boob in it.

    As for the band, it feels almost as tight as my Panache 28-bands (according to my measurements, the difference is about 3 cm stretched).

    Overall, while I feel supported and sexy, the quad boob I'm getting is too severe to make this a keeper. I'd say this bra is better for a 28FF and probably not for someone FOT, as the seams on top of the cup are a firm and will probably cut into your breast.

    I'm a little perplexed at how they managed to come up with this sizing.

    Color: Peach

    30G is the same size that fits me in the Parfait By Affinitas Charlotte Balconet Bra (6931) (one cup size up from my current starting-point size of 30FF). In this version? No! Should have gone with my usual 30FF.

    Cups: The wires are on the wider side, although not the widest I've worn; the cups are reasonably deep and fairly open at the top (especially compared to the shallower, more closed 6931). Both wires and wings are quite tall under the arms; excellent for corralling sideboob and giving smooth lines under the arms and on the back. (Not a good choice for those with narrow roots, high roots or short torsos.)

    Not a lot of room at the bottom of the cups for immediate projection. I suspect that, on me, the bottoms of the cups would crease with wear.

    I'd try your usual cup ... size first in this bra; perhaps one size up if you're very FOT. (I have even fullness.)

    Band: I found the wide band nicely firm, on the snugger side of 30 but not a full band size small.

    Unless you have a strong preference/need for bands on the looser side, I'd give your regular band size a try first.
