For my breast shape - wide root, fairly shallow on top with most tissue at the base, this is the perfect bra - I love it! As it is a half-cup there is no gapping at the top which is what happens with balconnet styles on me.

Having worn a 34B for years, sometimes 32B/A or 34A, and even 36A, depending on what was available in the style I liked, I read a few articles online which prompted me to measure myself whereupon I realised I had been wearing the wrong size for years. Based on my new findings I ordered a Cleo Zia along with a couple of other similar balconnet bras from Bravissimo in 32D. The fit wasn't perfect so I went to the store where I decided to have a proper fitting - the assistant took one look at the Zia and told me it was too small. Based on my shape she recommended Freya Patsy amongst others and I can truthfully say it is the most comfortable, best-fitting bra I have ever owned - I now have it in three colourways. I tried 32DD first but the band was too big and I now wear 30E in different brands, @Cleo and @Lepel, and, as long as it's a style which suits me, find that this is right for me.
