Used to fit
I had to try several versions of the Lucy before I finally found my size at 32HH in this bra, but now that I've found it, I really like it! The wires are a bit wide, so it scoops up everything on the sides, but then is shapes it forward and lifts in to a round profile. I used to wear only molded or padded bras, and more recently started to try to find soft cup bras I like. I have several, but this is by far my favorite so far.
The straps are comfortable, and the bright yellow color is fun and youthful. It's very thin material but feels sturdy. If I breathe in deeply and push forward a bit, then I get a tiny amount of quadraboob at the top of the cup because the material is not stretchy, but having tried cup sizes both larger with gaps at the top and smaller when I bubbles out, this is certainly the closest size for me.
(Maybe that's how soft bras are supposed to fit? Mostly fine across the top edge, but slight cut in when you very deeply inhale? My other brand, frequently worn soft cup does this as well, but next size up was also way too big, so I assumed that's how it works.)
I wear it under my dark tank tops and t-shirts and don't really notice the seams, and the lace detailing also hides underclothing neatly.
I modified this bra to take in the center gore to put the underwires directly next to each other and rotate the cups in slightly. It fits better in the sternum, though the wires are still a bit tall for me, since my breasts are so close set together. There's still a bit of cutting in across the top when I move, as the lace doesn't stretch at all. (can't take measurements sicne I forgot to take them before I sewed it smaller. D'oh.)
