Identical review for 3 sizes of the same bra. Find 30FF here: and 30G here:

I wondered why Lepel brand bras always seemed to be in-stock... so I took a chance and ordered a few sizes. Reviews I'd read were scant.

Since I'm on average a 30G in padded bras I started there. Some reviews suggested the cups may be too large/small so I decided to try the 30FF and a 32G as well. (I knew 32G cups would be larger--more like 30GG but the band would be looser).

Based on the design I anticipated this cup style as having vertical seams covered with satiny fabric. When I opened the delivery I was sad to see what I thought were really bizarre seams underneath. It's actually very similar to those of many Panache Superbra styles like Ariza, Andorra or Melody which all have a horizontal line that curves across the breast with a single vertical line on the bottom part of the cup. Personally, I think it makes boobs look like blinking eyes, which is kinda creepy. Either way it's not something that helps my shape and so the main reason I cannot stand to look at those types of bras. And this combined with the padded material certainly does NOTHING to flatter such a large cup (at least not on me).

Both 30FF + 30G were awkward shaped and too small in cup size to consider. I really wanted to make the 32G work because my breasts actually were closer to filling the cups properly... the terrible shape just did nothing for support. The 32-band was far too big but so were both of the 30-bands. The center gore pulled away from all 3 bras. There was side boob and more spillage on all 3 bras. The quality of all 3 bras was so sub par and uncomfortable I did not want to put them back on to take pictures ...but I did. As pretty as the design is it felt like being back in my old 34D US-sized bra. I couldn't wait to get them sent back for my refund.

After all of this I really wonder how Lepel stay in business. Are there really women out there who fit properly into this brand's styles? If so, do they really stay so quiet? If there are in fact ladies out there who proudly wear Lepel in F+ cup sizes I wish they would review them more often so other women (like me) had some idea what we were getting into!

Purchased & Returned Early-December '11 from Asos.
