Shallow boob heaven!! This is tied for the BEST-fitting bra I own (along with Masquerade Alice, also 30DD), and I have tried a dozen styles so far. This is by far the best-suited to my shallow, wide-rooted boobs. I love it so much, I got 2 of them!
I wouldn't mind if the wires were a *hair* wider, but the shape (open on top, 2 vertical seams) is ideal for my shallow boobs. I love that it has a relatively short (5.5 cm) gore, too.
This would work for someone needing a 28E or F, as the band is short for a 30 (unstretched, it's barely longer than my 28F ...Cleo Marcie, and shorter than my 28F Freya Just Flew In).
It has a soft, thin nude-colored foam lining (with 2 vertical seams), covered with lace. When I modeled my first one for my boyfriend, he said "wow, it's beautiful!"
Others on reddit/r/abrathatfits have mentioned that the lace is itchy, but I haven't had that experience at all. It feels like I'm wearing nothing - angels on my boobs, for sure. Read more 71 more words
Wide, very shallow tall root boob heaven. These fit my very shallow, wide and tall root shape perfectly! I have never had a bra with cups this shape fit so well. The lace lies perfectly against my chest without gaps, wrinkles, or any other indications of an ill fit. I love this bra so much that I bought another one in Snow.
The straps seem to stretch easily but I know that I can make them a little tighter, so it's an easy fix. The band stretches easily too, and I love it because I don't like to be squeezed.
The only things that is a little off for ...me is the width of the cups. I am going to alter it so that the wires touch at the center like the Natori Feathers. My breasts are very close together and the wires sit on my tissue a little bit, so once I alter the bra it will be absolutely perfect.
I am so excited that I finally have 2 bras that fit - this one and Natori Feathers in 30D!
I'm currently favoring - holy smokes I have a bra that fits!! - versus what I look like in a shirt. Since I've found bras that fit, I think that I look better in my clothes in general. Next I would like to find a nice push up bra and I really need a strapless bra for a wedding this summer. Recommendations welcome!
EDIT: 8/3/16 - after wearing it for a work day I have found that the gore is too high - it irritates my sternum. It is fine to wear and I love it because it fits just about perfect for me, but after about 10 hours the gore starts to irritate my sternum. I wonder if this will abate once I alter the wires to touch in front? I'll update as necessary. Read more 207 more words
It is as wide and shallow as I've found. My only gripe is that the wires don't feel like they come up high enough on the sides, and the band feels thin and weak - I wish it had side support panels, those make me feel tucked in.
This bra fits like it was made for me. Well, the cups are. The band is too stretchy.
The cups follow the curve of my breasts pretty much perfectly. Width is good, no gaps, no weird lines. The straps adjust short enough. They're not fully adjustable, but they are more adjustable than other half-adjustable straps I've seen.
The band, when brand new, was true to size, stretching to 30 inches flat. After a day of wear (at the tightest hook), they've stretched to way more than that, clearly, as the band was riding up. This is also due to the fact that the elastics in the band are THIN. Normally elastics are 3/8" (1/2" for thicker ones) but these are 1/4". They're stretchy and look like they'd stretch out pretty fast.
The lace is comfortable, not scratchy at all. Strap width is good too- they don't dig into armpits.
The bra is pretty comfortable, but the lace cover and seams show up under clothing. Also, even though it is lined/lightly padded, my nipple outline shows through shirts, giving me "headlights", which I don't like. The cup fits fine, but the band is too large - I'm really more of a 28 band, but that is impossible to find in stores here, and I was desperate. It might be the too loose band, but I don't think this bra does anything for me shape wise. My breasts just kind of sit in the cup, whereas in the freya longline I own, my breasts are lifted up, and the side support pulls the in.
I feel like the lace won't wear well. There is a bit of fraying already along the seams at the top. I imagine it will only get worse, as it looks like it may snag easily.
In summary: comfy, kind of cute, but not a favorite.
I'm kind of in love with this bra. The lace overlay is so, so pretty and the molded cups look and feel like they were custom-made for me. A couple of issues though: the band is really stretchy, and I can already tell it's going to stretch out too long after some wear. Also, the vertical seams on the cups show though thin shirts, so this is best worn under a thicker material top or a sweater.
After feeling a bit sorry to let this style go at my first try (30D - Betsey Johnson Intimates » Eyelet Lace Demi Bra (723325), I found another one in my size for cheap and decided to give it another go. As I remembered, it's super comfy. The band is so stretchy! The cups fit well and produce that nice mounded-hills look I like under buttoned blouses. Still not good for under tight t-shirts -- the lace shows through. The pink bows look okay enough in a picture, I guess, but on my actual body they left me feeling like Little ...Bo Peep. So I cut them off, and I like the look much better.
For about three months this was my favorite regular-wear bra. Then, to my horror, I saw that the elastic in the mesh at the sides of the bra has started to decay -- little pale dots of elastic thread are starting to appear all over the black mesh, like an evil and slightly sticky dust. I still like the fit and shape of the bra, but it's very disappointing to see the material breaking down so soon. By contrast, I have a couple of Natori @Feathers that have seen heavy use over the last five years, and although the colors have faded a little they show nothing like this kind of structural failure.

Background first: I have wide set, shallow, slightly splayed boobs; tall roots but soft and deflated, so my braless shape is full on bottom. The left side is about half a size larger than the right, but it's also more deflated and concave on top when unsupported.
First reactions: this bra is sooo comfy! The band is soft and super stretchy, as other reviewers have mentioned. I am impressed at how well the cups fit me. All my usual failure points check out: the wires are wide enough, the cups are shallow and open enough, the line at the top of the cups is nice ...and smooth on both sides. The overall silhouette is pretty good, a nice mounded-hills look with no quadboob. And it's very comfortable. Did I mention the band? How stretchy it is? Super stretchy! On a strapless this would never do, but for everyday wear I think this bra would feel great.
My quibbles are comparatively minor. The silhouette is flatter than ideal for me -- this bra minimizes what little forward projection I have. Also, the Suzy Snow colorway looks great on screen, but in real life the bow decorations are much more intense than I had expected, more of a bright coral than a mild pink. This would also not be a bra for under tight t-shirts: the seams and lace texture show through. Those aren't problems with the bra per se, just ways it doesn't match my tastes.

This bra was actually quite comfortable, but the underwires are too wide on the sides. Because i don't totally fill out the bra on the sides, the side wrinkle up. The side wrinkling isn't noticeable under a shirt, but it seems to make me look flatter.
