Ordered this because I know to size up a cup from my 30G in Fantasie/Freya when going to Panache/Cleo/Harlequin, and they don't do GG cups in Cleo/Harlequin. Figured if it fit decently on the tightest hook I'd take it to my seamstress to take in the wings, because I just loved the print.
Unfortunately, there's absolutely no way for me to make this fit. The straps seem to want to be a good 2 inches farther to either side than my shoulders. When I drag them up onto my shoulders, the cup gets very odd, with spillage although there's no quad-boob effect. When I hold them out to the sides, where the line of the strap and cup naturally falls, the top edge of the padded segment cuts in a bit, while the lace can't be filled completely (most likely the latter is due to the fact that my breasts fail to continue out to the strap, i.e. past my body). The wires come up into my armpits more than I'd like, and I think they would chafe a bit if I could actually wear it.
Although the print is cute, it's just that: a print, and the fabric seems very thin and cheap. Whatever they used for it, it's a single layer in the back/wings, and I feel like it wouldn't be very supportive, and you could easily go down a band size if you wanted to own this. For me, this would mean I'd need a 28H (with any luck, the straps wouldn't be falling off my shoulders then), but although it does go down to a 28 band, it only goes up to a G cup.
Returning this one.
