Well, to my (kind of) amazement, this is my first Feathers bra to fit perfectly.
I recently went down about a cup or so, and I just had a feeling that a 32C would fit over a 32D. Luckily someone ended up listing this as a give away, because I've wanted to try another but I haven't wanted to risk spending the price that they retail for just to try one.
It also isn't feasible for me to just take a trip over to Nordstrom again just to size myself, as I've moved out into the boonies and I don't have my car/a parking spot at my new place. So, I'm super thankful that this popped up, and that it actually worked!

I did not want another 30 band in this, regardless of having tried a 32DD with a crazy big band that rode up; the 30 bands in these bras have been really uncomfortable for me. One even measured about 27-28" in a 30 band. In this one, I don't have any issues with the band riding up or digging in. I also don't have any of my previous issues with cup puckering on top or bottom. This bra has a width that actually works for me though, and the depth does also. I suspect that as the sizes increase, the bra gets more wide and shallow? Either that or I am becoming just a little more shallow.

As for the cup separation, it is still mildly too separate for my boobs, but not to the extent that it makes me quad at all. I am considering trying to sew it up to make the cups closer and give me an even better fit, but as of now, it doesn't bother me too much.
After trying on the Claudette Dessous in 30E, I did notice that I have lost a little bit of center tissue, so this could also explain why the cup separation isn't as problematic as I'm used to.

So about the bra, it has fully adjustable straps, a lace band, about 1.4" cup separation, 5.2" cup width, and I believe about 7.2" cup depth. The width and depth seem perfectly fine to me" alt="o_O" /> This about matches my best fitting bras, which have 5-5.3" width and 7.3" depth, except they are very centered.
I'm happy, considering I've wanted this bra to work for so long.
The cups give a nice, rounded shape, and the mesh "sling" overlay on the cups is very comfortable where it hits on top.
I've been wanting a nice fitting black bra for a while, so I'm happy =)

After wearing twice I realized that the separation did start to make me quad throughout the day." alt=":(" /> Ahh what a shame. I love the Feathers bra so much. I guess this is just another Claudette Dessous for me.
Maybe one day a narrow, close set, projected Feathers bra will be made. One can dream.

Edit 2:
Just wanted to note that I altered the gore to make the wires overlap.
The bra actually fits MUCH better now, but I feel a bit insecure about my bigger, left side having so little coverage.
Think I ought to try this in a 32D or 30DD and alter the gore again, but for now this is the only thingcompatible with my lower tops.
I think, because of the shape and consistency of my breasts, I may just be compatible with various types of bras (shallow and narrow or projected and narrow), though obviously projected and narrow are closer to my original shape.
The Feathers in this size isn't wide like the others I've tried (30DDD,32DD), so keep that in mind

    Glad you found what you were looking for! This was my first bra I got after I learned my correct size. I think you're right in that it does get wide and shallow as you size up. I have it in 30E, and it's pretty wide and shallow. I need to list it on here as I don't wear it anymore. Even in the wrong fit it was super comfy, I recommend it highly! Looks great on you :)

    I'm glad this worked out for you. I am wide and shallow and although on paper this bra should fit doesn't. I so want a Natori Feathers bra to fit, I keep trying them on when I can find them saying, "maybe this time it will fit".

  • Flutershie Thank you! And yeah, I had the 30E as well and I loved it. Such a nice bra :)

    @thelittleone Thank you :) Aw, yeah I understand that. I'm not supposed to work well with shallow + wide bras, but I wanted this and Chantelle C Chic to work so badly for so long :(
    I'm glad I finally found something that works in this, but I don't think I'll ever have luck with the Chantelle.
    Good luck in your search for one though! It's a tricky bra IMO
