The Luxe Heart is an older style that has been discontinued long ago and I got this bra in an exchange from another user here on Bratabase. It is based on the same balconette cut like Bravissimo Alana. In the Alana and it's related models I always had to size up at least 1-2 cup sizes compared to my UK size at a time. It also has not so much room in the upper cup. The upper part of the bra has additional lining in black so it looks nothing like the stock photo in large cups. (Meh It's always the same...)
The bra is definetly one of the most wearable bras I got lately. The cups have no gaping on top and almost no wrinkling on bottom. I say that cup depth here is right for me. The wires are a bit too wide for me like on all UK brands. What is interesting is that the wires are lower on the sides in this bra than for example in the same size on my 34K - Bravissimo » Georgia Bra (LN563). Also the cup on the Georgia bra is much taller than on Luxe Heart. Georgia is listed as full cup and Luxe Heart / Alana etc. are balconnetes. Since the cups are less tall and the wings are lower I don't get the cutting into the arms effect as much on this bra. I still think the straps are a bit too separate on this but it's not such a big issue. The shape under a top is very nice rounded from the side and not too east-west from the front. (far better than Panache Tango!)
I wore the bra for a full day and felt good in it. Then on the next day I wanted to wear it again (note that I have barely any bra that fits properly at the moment) and it felt less supportive and I felt that I need a tighter band. So I forced myself to wear Melrose and Tango in between since I know you should not wear your bra 2 days in a row. When I wore it again, I had to close it on the second set of hooks already to get enough support from the band. I felt pressure on the straps (red marks) and that it got less supportive over the day. It's not too bad by any means, but also not really good. I'm still glad I own this bra and it is wearable until I have some better bras.
