I found this on Amazon, and was very curious about it. Their write-up intrigued me. They give excellent details in the description. However, even though it's a European bra, they used the "Plus 4" method for measuring. Each size is specified on the website what measurements it will fit; a feature I've not seen on Amazon before.
So, strictly going by their recommendations I should have ordered a 34H. But I carry a lot of that measurement in my wide back and not as much in the actual breasts. So, I ignored their instructions and ordered the size I normally wear, US 32G. Glad I did! Now mind you, I prefer my band very snug, so if you don't, you may want to size up in the band. But it fit comfortably on the loosest hook, which will give me longer wear-ability as the band begins to stretch.

* So for starters, it's a 3 part stretch lace cup, with thin foam (lined with cotton) on both the bottom cradle and side sling. The foam has a very slight stretch to it, so it conforms well to your shape. The top third is single layer stretch lace, with a narrow 1/8" elastic inside the neckline edge. The lace is flat enough not to show under an ordinary top, and the seams will be minimal. But if it's a slinky knit, or very form fitting, the seams will definitely show.
* The color of the lace is a beautiful Robin's egg blue, over a neutral beige (which would show up much lighter on darker skin). A nice attention to detail - the lace is matched perfectly symmetrical, even on the cradle. The lace travels up the strap 2" where it's met by a dainty bow. It has another bow at the gore, where a beautiful charm hangs from it. Fully adjustable, non-convertible straps. Gold hardware on the straps and hooks.
* The front band (between the cups) is lace, lined and has no stretch. It has flexible boning under the arms, beyond which point the rest of the band is single layer stretch microfiber, with a U-shaped leotard back. Exposed elastic at the top & bottom of band. Has 2x3 hooks (I would have preferred 3x3, but that's a minor point IMO.)
* The gore is very narrow and fairly tall on my short torso. Curiously, when I lean forward to Swoop&Scoop, the gore pulls away; will not lay flat. But it does lay flat on my sternum while standing, and comfortable so I don't notice it's there.
* As for shape, it's nicely rounded. The cups pull the girls away from the sides while easily managing center fullness. Case in point, my 'natural' width between apexes is 7.5". This bra draws them slightly closer to 7", so it provides nice cleavage without looking awkward or fake. I also imagine this bra would do well for someone with an East/West shape. Over all, definitely more projected than shallow; a nice change from 90% of the bras out there.
* As for the decolletage edge, the stretch lace and elastic edge is best suited for Even to Slightly FoT, with average root height. Those who are Very FoT (or tall roots) would have a problem with the elastic on the lace edge, while those who are Very FoB would probably have some gaping.

* Even with only wearing a few times, the single layer band has already stretched out so that I need to wear it on the tightest set of hooks. It just didn't hold up like it should have!
* The tab that the hooks & eyes are mounted into is short, so if you wear it on the loosest set, it's GOING to be scratchy against your back!
* I also find the seams show a lot more than I thought they would, which is a pet peeve of mine. (I know it's a cultural thing, but I'd rather see prominent nipples anyday, over boobs covered with a whole bunch of seams!)

* You may notice in the pictures, I added a photo of their matching panty. For reference, I used Amazon's size chart to determine which size to get and so I ordered size 5-6 (the bra was also bought through Amazon). However once it arrived, the paper hang tag says US size 8, and the sewn-in tag says Medium. (I normally wear size US6 in panties, so I was really not sure how it would fit.) But it has a soft stretch to it, and seems to be comfy...and just enough cheekiness with the lace back to be quite sexy.
