I finally got my hands on the Le Mystere Sophia Lace Bra in 30D, which has been sold out on Nordstrom Rack for a while. If you've seen my other reviews, I bought a 30C a long time ago when that was closer to my size, recently tried my current normal sister size of 30DD and found it slightly too big, and decided to size down to 30D. Thankfully, this size worked out!

I think that this bra fits quite similarly to the Masquerade Alice, where I also had to size down to a 30D. Compared to Alice, the band is much more TTS (it is a snug 30), and the cups are a little shallower, but it doesn't feel too small as it is designed for FOT shapes and can accommodate more upper fullness. Both are plunge balconettes that give a bit of natural push up without padding and create a really nice rounded shape. Alice runs a full cup size big, but this seems to run about half a cup size big. If you are a fan of Alice, give this bra a try!

I had two problems in the 30DD/E that were remedied by sizing down--first, the 30DD/E is designed for a wider frame, so the outer edges of the cups are too high under my arms and cause gapping. Second, the bras I got in that size had this weird ridge at the bottom of the foam where it meets the wire, so there is no room for the wire to sit against the IMF. I didn't see this issue in my 30C or in this bra, so I think it's just a manufacturing inconsistency.

I'm glad I got this to work for me again, because the bra is super pretty, and I just love the way it looks. The outer cup is covered with a layer of floral jacquard lace with a slight crossdye effect. The cradle and band are also fully covered in lace. I like that the band is actually made from mesh topped with lace, and has a proper wide bottom edge elastic, so it's not one of those flimsy lace bands that so many brands love to make. While it's narrow, it actually feels firm and supportive! The straps are narrow, but they do get a bit wider as sizing goes up. The front of the straps is covered with textured picot edged ribbon, while the adjustable portion at the back is plain satin. Fully adjustable straps would have been better, but the length of these isn't too bad. The only decoration is a lace bow at the gore with a small teardrop crystal charm.
