I wasn't sure about ordering this bra, because I didn't like the vertical stripes, but it's much more beautiful than I thought. Weirdly enough the 30E cup works for me, although it's slightly on the larger side. In Parfait plunge bras, 30DD is way too big for me.
The shape of this bra is great for me: on the wider side (although they're probably still sitting on breast tissue), but shallow (I have very wide, very shallow tissue, but a lot of center fullness). I have tall roots and these cups are tall, which is great for support, but I do feel them in my armpits so I'd have preferred narrower straps. The band is rather tight, although the measurements don't show it, it feels much tighter than the band of my Casey, which is about the same length, but more comfortable. The problem I have with this bra is that the wires are very hard and poke in my sternum. Compared to the Parfait Casey plunge, of which the wires don't bother me at all, the wires are much less flexible. I've tried to bend them and it's a little better now, but it's doesn't feel great. The gore is also way too wide for me. I'm getting tired of altering bras, so I'm returning this. Such a pity, because this truly is a beauty.
