Almost too loose, but on the tightest hooks it's ok. I will probably gain weight again soon, so it's not a problem.

My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.
This review is for the indigo colorway.
I received this bra gently used via a swap. It is in fantastic shape considering its used status, and it is GORGEOUS. The silvery thread in the embroidery really sparkles!
I love my 32F - Fauve » Bronte Padded Longline Bra (0331) , so I have been looking for more of Fauve's vertical seam half-cups in 30FF (my normal size). This one seems to fit fairly similarly, in spite of being a cup size smaller and having a smaller band for less tension distribution.
It is very open on top. If my breast tissue wasn't so firm, I might have some problems with bouncing out! Since my boobs are pretty self-supporting, though, it's great and perfect for some open necklines.
The band is also much firmer than the 30F - Fauve » Maya Padded Half Cup (0271) and doesn't seem as stretchy, so in spite of the fact that it's been worn a few times the band feels like new.
The cups are a little on the small side, but they also cut into my breast tissue under my arms because the angle of the cups doesn't follow the angle of my super-wide breast roots, which are very shallow and point back toward my shoulder blades, while the underwires are very round with a steep outer curve, but since it's not really noticeable or uncomfortable when I'm wearing it, I don't know if I'll bother sizing up to a 30FF. The wings are tall enough to keep all the side-boob in, regardless.
I also love the ruching on the straps. Strap details are always great, and this just adds to the niceness of this bra. There are lovely embellishments on the band, too! It seems I am doomed to find all my best-fitting, most beautiful bras right as they are discontinued, so I will never be able to get all the sister sizes and colorways and matching underoos and everything that I want. Ho hum.

The tail of breast tissue under my arms is not encased, but it isn't uncomfortable and doesn't affect the great support from this bra.
