Used to fit

This band is very tight, but does have enough stretch to it that I'm not quite suffocating. I know that the band will stretch more with time; as of yet I've only had the bra for two months. It's already a lot less terrible than it was initially. I heartily suggest a Miss Mandalay 30 for the 28-back crowd. (It fits me with an extender.)

The cups fit my smaller breast perfectly, but there's a bit of cutting in on my larger one. This bra is really made for someone with no upper fullness at all. This bra displays it oddly, though: The inflexible ribbon at the top of the cup flares away from my breast instead of feebly attempting to conform to it as does on the breast it actually fits. I really feel like it's a strange design flaw, almost. I barely notice it at this point. I've had luck counteracting the ill aesthetic effects of the ribbon by playing around with strap tightness.

A very welcome difference in the fit of this bra compared to 32-band Miss Mandalays is that the wires fit me perfectly. There was no need for any bending where the wires met my underbust, or under my armpits. Short people, take note.

The shape this bra gives is comparable to a Miss Mandalay Paige: a rounded and natural shape.

I also had the same issue that Undiegamer had with her black Paris ( The top ribbon on the right cup began to fray away from the right side of the cup. As I bought this bra secondhand, I couldn't contact a manufacturer or anything, so I just stitched it up myself. Given the design flaws of this bra, I wouldn't recommend getting it full price in this color.
