A tiny bit of gaping at top edge of cup. Overall, looks great.

I love this bra! I think it is much prettier than it looked online and so flattering on me (which is extremely unusual)! I'm dealing with wide-set, average to wide short roots, upper deflation with some lower projection, very soft. I think this bra is actually the best fit I have found, so far and it is definitely my current favorite! YAY!!!
The flexible, soft cups seem to be somewhat uniquely shaped and it works well for me (but I can see why it wouldn't work for everyone.) I think I generally fit more like a 28DD/30D, but in this model, the 30DD is where it's at. It's slightly big, as I have a tiny bit of gaping at the top edge of the cup, but it honestly quite minimal and the lace trim helps hide it. It still looks and feels beautiful.
I want to say the cups run somewhat small, except they are kind of stretchy and I think that it would actually fit true to size if it is the right shape for you. It is not quite as shallow as I thought from the pictures. It actually gives me more forward projection than I expected and a nice lifted, rounded shape. The wings are tall enough to give me the side support I need and the lightly padded cups provide shaping without being too rigid. The band feels true to size. Although a little bit squeaky, the cups and band are so comfortable!
The thin double straps are pretty and feel OK on me, but I can see how they might not be comfortable for people with heavier breasts. (I don't know if they are wider on larger sizes). They don't have any stretch so they do dig in to my shoulders a little. They are also unusually short. While they fit my 5'1 frame, I have to make them almost as long as they can go. The gore is on the wider side (around 1 inch width), so it's going to better fit people with some space between their boobs.
It is worth noting that the 30D, which I also tried in the same colorway, seems like almost a different bra. Something about it seems disproportionate to me. I need short cups, but those were way too short. The cups were definitely too small and gave me serious quad boob, so while I think the DD might be true to size, I think the D runs small. Which is odd. The wings weren't high enough. If I had tried the 30D first, I never would have tried a different size, because it really was that different and I didn't like it at all, even before I put it on. In contrast, I fell in love with the 30DD as soon as I opened the package!
