This bra suprised me. Plunge styles are often a fail on me but this is a great fit. It's a *very* comfy bra to wear. In fact I liked it so much I bought a couple of them. I get a bit of quad boob on my bigger side after scooping but if I give the girls a bit of a jiggle everything settles into the cup nicely.
The moulding is a little thicker than I would like but I can live with it. They look smooth under t-shirts and the bra is often advertised as a t-shirt bra, but they all come in bright colour combos so will be very visible under light coloured shirts. Ok if you are doing the underwear as outerwear thing I guess!
I'm going to have to revise this review, after several weeks I found that this bra just didn't wear well and some minor issues became a very big problem because of it. The band felt stretchier than normal in this bra and I should have tried the 28 instead. As soon as the bra started to stretch I had massive quadboobs and the center gore was pulling away from my chest. Bringing the bra in to a tighter hook brought the gore back in but there is just no escaping the quadboob problem. My measurements haven't changed so I think the band starting to stretch just highlighted the fact that the fit wasn't quite right to begin with.
I now think a size 28 e or f would probably be closer to the right size for me but I've just decided not to bother as I think in a larger cup I am going to have way too much bra in the underarm area and this is just the wrong style of bra for me. When I compare this to my Panache porcelain which is also a moulded bra I can see that the Jude has a much flatter, shallower cup - which is generally what I need but in this case it seems to be too much of a good thing. The Jude is moulded from a much thicker foam which is also probably contributing to the problem as it seems like there is less room in the bra as a result.
