This bra is beautiful! It's got a really unique neckline that I've never really seen before on a bra, but that is more forgiving and makes for a really flattering, comfortable fit. Definitely worth the cheaper price tag.
The band is tighter, if you're struggling to figure out your size, I recommend you size down. Also, I'm constantly having trouble with the cups being too wide (especially in the otherwise excellent Panache brands), but these Lulu Tout bras are more narrow and beautifully fit my narrower, deep breasts. The overall shape is more pointy than I tend to get in Panache styles, but adjusting the straps fixes this to where it's not noticeable under clothes, as long as you wear tops/dresses that are loose enough and thick enough over your breasts that you can't see the embroidery (aka if you couldn't tell from figleaves' photos, this bra obviously won't work with cheap/sheer/tight tops or anything that'll normally require the molded cup t-shirt bras. I tried it under a slightly thicker jersey dress from Ross and it looked fine).
I loved this bra so much, but I needed two new bras. Since I couldn't find anything else on figleaves' website that fit this price range and looked as gorgeous, I ended up buying two bras in sister sizes. This specific review is for the Electric Blue in the larger band (32GG), but I also bought a black one in 30H. With an extender on the black one, both work fine. And honestly, both colors are beautiful. The deep dark blue with the beautiful turquoise stitching is vibrant and gives off a playfully sexy mermaid vibe, while the black is more subtle, slimming, and classicly sexy. Both have several sheer layers that make the overall effect only slightly opaque. It really was beautifully designed.
My only real gripe about this bra is the sound. The cheap plastic "hardware" that connects the straps to the bra was where the inexpensive price point really shows: every time I move, the bra creaks. At first I thought this was because the band was too tight, but I'm pretty sure it's the cheap hardware. In any case, it might be embarrassing in the wrong situation, and it's making me a little nervous that the whole thing is eventually going to snap. I'm going to have to wear it around the house a few times before I can trust it out in public.
