This review is for the neon pink/black colorway, which is one of the oldest (from 2012 I believe). I have heard that this bra has changed substantially since then, so keep that in mind with this review!
I got this bra from the Claudette encore sale (because $10!) and was not at all prepared to love it as much as I did! The 30FF ran TTS on me. I fill the cups well and actually like how tall they are--somehow they are stretchy enough to not cut in to my taller roots. It also gives me one of the best shapes I've ever gotten in an unlined bra--very round, but also somewhat natural, minimized, and relaxed. Since it is super sheer, frankly, it makes it look like I have just really beautiful boobs, haha. I have soft tissue and a slightly conical shape, so getting a shape that is both round and natural is hard to do!
The wires on this bra are narrow and U-shaped. I am average width and this was fine.
A note about consistency between bras, however. I ordered a 30FF and 30G in the exact same colorway, and in terms of the cup, the 30FF (my usual size) was the right one. 30G had wrinkling and empty space. However, on the 30FF the band is very stretchy (I got it to 33 inches). On the 30G, however, it was quite tight--I had to stretch as much as I could to get it just to 30! This makes me wonder if a) the 30FF had been tried on a lot, or returned, or something, and b) if this means that the mesh used in this bra stretches out SUPER quickly. The fabric on the 30FF was also very comfortable, whereas the 30G was really scratchy--again, making me wonder if the 30FF had gotten more use? I guess the good news is that it seems the fabric gets softer/more comfortable over time.
Still, I love this bra and want to snag some of the older colorways while I can, since I suspect the newer fit won't work as well on me. Due to the seeming inconsistencies among bras with the same band size and color, I'm not sure I'd ever consider it worth it to buy a Dessous for the full price.
