Cup height is 6.75in tall. Love this bra except it's still a little tall at the strap. But the space isn't obvious under shirts. The band is rather tight but I'm gonna try an extender and see if that helps. Overall I love this bra!!!!

I believe I'm the third owner of this bra; it's the Sophisticate cut and the first Anna Pardal I've tried! It's a deep, saturated cherry red with oriental-inspired lace overlay and trim, which looks exactly the same as the Comexim Geisha. The design is not overly decorated, finished only with matching red bows on the straps and gore, and black straps with a subtle glossy finish in the center. I think Sabine's charm lies in its elegant simplicity, which allows its beautiful, well-made materials to shine
I admit, I've hesitated to order directly from Anna Pardal before, noticing that many of her bras ... look extremely similar to Comexim's, which are much more affordable, and wondering whether the extra luxurious details were worth the cost differential. Now that AP has gone out of business and I've had the opportunity to try this one, I really do see the appeal! The inner lining of the band is silky soft, the cups are cut in perfect accordance with my breast shape, and the band is firm, stretching not much beyond 28". In fact I'd say that this 30GG fits band and cup volume wise more like a Comexim 60J, it definitely isn't a true to size 30. So, possibly consider sizing up if you're on the larger end of your usual band size. Sabine's very thin foam shapes the breasts into a flattering round shape without adding a lot of bulk or extra padding, in contrast to say Ewa Michalak's S cut, which gives a super projected look that can make me extra conscious of the size of my boobs and can only be worn under very fitted shirts to prevent the dreaded "boob tent" look.
The only thing that I dislike about this bra is that it exaggerates my tail of spence a bit, but that's much more the fault of my individual anatomy than the bra's. I think I could do with just a hint more immediate projection, but we'll see how Sabine fares with further wear

This is the Sophisticate Cut which includes reduced cup height, reduced gore height, and straps moved inward 2cm. Additionally, this gore has overlapping wires: swoon. Fortuitously, this bra does not swallow my very short roots. The cups are fantastically designed to lift and center. The straps are narrow enough to patiently sit on my shoulders without adjustment. The wings are high enough to contain all tissue and low enough to create complete comfort. The cups are expertly lined in cloud-like cotton. Anna Pardal bras have been thoroughly and thoughtfully designed! I will patiently wait for this level of comfort. However, like every other Comexim plunge I've tried, there is not enough immediate projection. I feel overstuffed into a too small space near the wire. With a heavy heart, I admit this piece of art and engineering does not fit. However, I will eagerly trade for an Anna Pardal 30GG Doyenne Half cup
