I ordered this bra after I couldn't decide on the fit of the 28DD - ideally I'd have liked to try the 28E, but wasnt able to find one for a good price. Predictably enough, this bra is just as beautiful as the other: silky fabric on the cups and delicate lace at the top. I'm not a fan of brown clothing generally but this is a pretty pink-brown colour, and I love the little jewel at the gore.
This size fits me quite well in the cup, better in that respect than the 28DD. In the smaller size I felt that the cup gave a somewhat flattened shape and it seemed to be too shallow at the bottom, sitting a little bit too low on my ribcage. This bra is quite a bit deeper and the shape from the side is more rounded. I was pleased to find that the wires aren't much wider at all in this size, as I was a bit worried they'd suddenly get ginormous. I don't get quite as much cleavage above the top of the cups as I do in the smaller size, but overall I prefer the shape.
The main problem I had in this size was the band being a bit too big. To get a nice shape in the Rhea I find the band needs to be fairly firm to prevent gapping, and to make sure that all your breast tissue is lifted upwards to create cleavage (all the more so because the band doesn't have much stretchiness). With this size that meant wearing it on the tightest hook straight away, whereas a band size down I could wear it on the loosest hook. It was also quite noticeable that the straps are set more widely in this bra than on the 28 band, wearable but still wider than I prefer (and strap width isn't something I usually have a problem with). So while both this and the 28DD sort of fit, I think I'd get my best fit in a 28E, if I can ever find it in that size for less than a squillion dollars.
