    65D

    Didn't fit

    First thing's first, the 65D is actually equivalent to a US/UK 28D, not a 30D, according to this company's sizing charts. Ampere offers a Home Try-On Program, where you can receive extra bras in sizes they choose based on your initial pick, and send back the ones that didn't fit without any extra hassle. My underbust measurement is about 26", so I ordered a 65C and sent an email to them requesting mostly 65/28 bands (since they don't stock smaller bands than 65). They kindly responded and sent me a 65B, 65C, 65D, and 70B, so I've had the chance to try each of these sizes (hence my ... repetitious reviews)!

    As noted, my band size should probably be around a 26, but even still, the 65/28 band works alright for me. It's not as tight in comparison to a 28 band from The Little Bra Company, but it stays up fine regardless of the straps. The cups are too big for me, so I can't elaborate too much on the specifics of the fit to actually be useful.

    Regarding the bra itself, it comes up fairly high under the arm. The straps are attached at fairly wide points, so watch out if you have particularly narrow shoulders; mine aren't at all broad and it still just works for me, but that's something to note. The elastic of the straps is nice and wide, so it won't cut into your shoulders. The cups are unpadded.

    I'm really pleased with the construction of this bra. It's lovely to look at, and feels very well-made. The silk lining is nice, and I like the gold leaf embroidery against the black lace. Just do note that because of the textured lace and edging, it might look a little weird under some shirts, as most fancier bras will.

    If you're like me and have trouble finding your size at physical stores, I recommend giving Ampere a try if possible, especially if you're also still unsure what a good fit might be like for you.

    65B

    Fits

    First thing's first, the 65B is actually equivalent to a US/UK 28B, not a 30B, according to this company's sizing charts. Ampere offers a Home Try-On Program, where you can receive extra bras in sizes they choose based on your initial pick, and send back the ones that didn't fit without any extra hassle. My underbust measurement is about 26", so I ordered a 65C and sent an email to them requesting mostly 65/28 bands (since they don't stock smaller bands than 65). They kindly responded and sent me a 65B, 65C, 65D, and 70B, so I've had the chance to try each of these sizes (hence my ... repetitious reviews)!

    The 65B and 65C are closer to sizes that work for me. As noted, my band size should probably be around a 26, but even still, the 65/28 band is alright for me. It's not as tight in comparison to a 28 band from The Little Bra Company, but it stays up fine regardless of the straps. This bra seems more ideal for narrow-set people. The underwires don't really cut off my breast tissue, but they seem a little narrow for me. I have more of a problem with the cup separation in the 65C, but it, too, is on the narrow side. There's still a little gapping at the very top of the cup (although part of that is just the eyelash lace, not the cup itself), but I wouldn't say a 65A would work (not that they make those). I think it's more just the shape of my breasts, possibly too shallow. If the cups didn't come up quite so high, they'd fit almost perfectly. As it is, the gapping is small enough that I don't think it's a huge issue.

    Regarding the bra itself, it comes up fairly high under the arm. The straps are attached at fairly wide points, so watch out if you have particularly narrow shoulders; mine aren't at all broad and it still just works for me, but that's something to note. The elastic of the straps is nice and wide, so it won't cut into your shoulders. The cups are unpadded.

    I'm really pleased with the construction of this bra. It's lovely to look at, and feels very well-made. The silk lining is nice, and I like the gold leaf embroidery against the black lace. Just do note that because of the textured lace and edging, it might look a little weird under some shirts, as most fancier bras will. Some t-shirts work; some don't. I do like the shape it gives me, even though it doesn't have padding.

    If you're like me and have trouble finding your size at physical stores, I recommend giving Ampere a try if possible, especially if you're also still unsure what a good fit might be like for you.

    70B

    Didn't fit

    First thing's first, the 70B is actually equivalent to a US/UK 30B, not a 32B, according to this company's sizing charts. Ampere offers a Home Try-On Program, where you can receive extra bras in sizes they choose based on your initial pick, and send back the ones that didn't fit without any extra hassle. My underbust measurement is about 26", so I ordered a 65C and sent an email to them requesting mostly 65/28 bands (since they don't stock smaller bands than 65). They kindly responded and sent me a 65B, 65C, 65D, and 70B, so I've had the chance to try each of these sizes (hence my ... repetitious reviews)!

    The 70B/30B is definitely too big in the band for me. As a brand new bra, all but the tightest hook won't stay up around my ribcage, and even the tightest closure slips a little when I breathe. So the fit's just not going to be right for me, here.

    Regarding the bra itself, it comes up fairly high under the arm. The straps are attached at fairly wide points, so watch out if you have particularly narrow shoulders; mine aren't at all broad and it still just works for me, but that's something to note. The elastic of the straps is nice and wide, so it won't cut into your shoulders. The cups are unpadded.

    I'm really pleased with the construction of this bra. It's lovely to look at, and feels very well-made. The silk lining is nice, and I like the gold leaf embroidery against the black lace. Just do note that because of the textured lace and edging, it might look a little weird under some shirts, as most fancier bras will.

    If you're like me and have trouble finding your size at physical stores, I recommend giving Ampere a try if possible, especially if you're also still unsure what a good fit might be like for you. For instance, even though the 70/30 band was too big for me, I like knowing what specifically is wrong with the fit.

    65C

    Didn't fit

    First thing's first, the 65C is actually equivalent to a US/UK 28C, not a 30C, according to this company's sizing charts. Ampere offers a Home Try-On Program, where you can receive extra bras in sizes they choose based on your initial pick, and send back the ones that didn't fit without any extra hassle.

It's not as tight in comparison to a 28 band from The Little Bra Company, but it stays up fine regardless of the straps. This bra seems more ideal for narrow-set people. The underwires don't really cut off my breast tissue, but they seem a little narrow for me, and the gore is narrower than I'd like, which leaves that side of the cups a little empty. I don't have enough tissue to fill out the top of the cups without gapping. I think my breasts are on the shallow side, so that may be why.

    Regarding the bra itself, it comes up fairly high under the arm. The straps are attached at fairly wide points, so watch out if you have particularly narrow shoulders; mine aren't at all broad and it still just works for me, but that's something to note.
