Given how gorgeous and roomy they appeared I'd bought a few Norahs in a recent sale, as it wasn't clear whether this style would run shallower in lower cup letters/taller in higher cup lettering.
Shape, cup width, and depth are similar to Josephine in 30G, but cup height and wire run taller and narrower than the (non-side support) Kate in 32G which is an inch deeper & has a marvelously full, projected fit. Now don't get it twisted- what I'm about to say definiitely does not negate the extra large sizing reputation this brand brings to the table. This specific kind of shape runs just slightly shallower than the fullcups and appears to be made to reign in and scoop up the breast vertically. It performs fantastically for my too-full fit needs, and the only mild complaint I can muster is over it's height (hardly a problem when everything is so off in most every brand out here).
Gore is not as narrow as either Josephine or Kate; however it's much closer than the Jazz's gore which runs an inch shorter. So while this is a good option for evenly full shapes, perhaps not perfect for close set who rely on Gorsenia or Comexim levels of scant clearance.
The fine net and embroidery on this bra are surprisingly supportive for something this light; there isn't much mechanical ease/give to speak of but you can get about .5-.75 'breathing room' depending on how much scoopage one feels like neglecting. The gore and wing are also made with a fine net with a medium weight stretch lace overlay: in the wing's case this terminates with an elastic seam filled with a cheap plastic bone. Surely the first half dozen wears this will be less of an issue but depending on how the band breaks in, YMMV with this feature.
Despite being technically large enough, I don't think I will be keeping this size as the band is much too wide/loose for regular wear without taking it in.
