I have this bra in 28FF, which is two sizes too small. I had heard it was a good idea to size down a cup size from the reviews on Amazon.com, and then my boobs went up a cup size between ordering the bra and its arrival. Keeping it because I need a sports bra asap and I'll just have to make do with altering the wires until I can afford another. (It's much more comfortable with the wires adjusted, but still not ideal.)
I don't believe it's necessary to size down; the bra seems true to size (way too small for me) and if anything I might recommend sizing up in the band. I can fasten it, but it's almost too tight on my 27.5 inch ribcage.
I notice much less bounce when I use the j-hook to turn it into a racer back. Not sure if that's because it doesn't fit properly or if everyone would have that issue.
Otherwise, the construction of the bra is very good, and the wires are padded enough that I can't really feel them. And it gives me a nice shape under my tank tops without any seams showing.
I'd really like to try this bra in my proper size once I have more room in my budget!
