Didn't fit

After reading the reviews here, I opted to go for a bra that would be one cupsize smaller than my usual size - 28H. And it really fits! I get a teeny weeny bit of quadraboob when I breathe in deeply, but otherwise the top of the bra sits flat against the top of my boob and sometimes it even feels a bit empty.

The front-on shape I get from it is splendid - the bra really puts your boobs out there and all of a sudden, I looked much narrower in the chest area than I usually do, which was a definite plus. The side-view is, however, not really that awesome. The shape is a but odd, even though I decided I kind of liked it after a while. But I have to choose my shirts carefully, which isn't the case with my favourite bras.

This is also the first-ever bra in which I've experienced a puckering - I just don't fill in the top front part of the bra properly, even though the top ribbon, only a few centimetres further back, sits firmly on my boob-tissue and cuts in when I breathe in deeply.

All in all, the Meg is truly a beautiful, firm and well-made bra, but its shape is (at least for me) so odd that I can't squeeze myself into the cups. I am keeping this one, but will probably not be buying bras of this cut in the future.

--- EDIT ---

I've had the Meg for a year and I have grown to like it a lot! It makes my boobs look perky and pushes them forward - also, for some odd reason, they actually look smaller.

The puckering hasn't gone away, but I hardly notice it anymore. Also, it must be something about Meg specifically, not the other bras in this shape, because I've recently tried on a Zia, which, in my opinion, is of a similar cut, and there was no puckering at all.
