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!
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.

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.

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.

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 is really comfortable!
This just might fit!
Wow, they weren't kidding when they said the band is very stretchy.
Of course, it got more complicated from there. I love the detail of the split strap near the cup. I think it's adorable and downplays my annoyingly prominent tail of spence. I feel like this bra is really cute, in a sweet sort of way.
When I first put it on, I get quadboob, but as I wear it, this settles down. Since the shallow cups are very lightly padded, they give some shape and I don't have the kind of issues with my soft boobs that I get ... with unlined. I find that a little poking and tucking (very minimal) helps the fit look right for me. Cups are pretty soft and a bit stretchy, so they're rather forgiving but also not as supportive as some other bras. The wires are flexible and fit well under my arm and around my boobs, but I could probably use a higher gore.
The gore is actually quite comfortable and sits flush against me. If I lie on my side, I do spill out of the cups, but not as bad as I did with the padded pushups in a too-big band that I used to wear!
Being so shallow, as expected it doesn't give much forward projection, but it does give me a nice rounded shape, for the most part. From the side, my breasts look quite small, with and without clothing on....but I suppose that's because they are.
After wearing this for several hours, I have noticed a few things. Probably because the band is so stretchy, eventually my boobs settle way down. I start getting a little quadding towards the gore and a bit more gaping in the cup-meets-strap area. Also....this band is so scratchy in the back...it is driving me crazy. I am really sensitive to fabrics, so this isn't all that shocking, except that it is so opposite of my first reaction about how comfortable this bra is. (It still is....in everyplace but the back strap.) I am going to wash it and see if it softens up a little bit.
It's also worth noting that the vertical seams will show some under thin, soft fabric shirts. The top of the diagonal seam is a little weird. It almost appears that the one I got is irregular. The lace kind of bunches up there, as if it wasn't trimmed enough after the bra was assembled. (I trimmed it slightly and it is a little better, but still not resolved.) On one cup, this makes the lace flip out in that area. The light padding is sewn to the lace mostly just along the underwire and in a couple of places along the top of the cup.....the end of the diagonal seam being one of the points of stitching.
Overall impression: This is a cute bra and is good for shallow, wide, relatively wide set roots. For now, I am keeping it, because this is one of the best fits I've found and it's actually wearable. I am surprised at the quality though...I would expect more from Betsey Johnson (although I have never tried their bras before, they do make a lot of high quality products. Or, at least, I thought so from their price tags!) There is actually a very cheap feel to the construction. The very stretchy band and straps make it obvious that this is not going to hold up for very long. The way the lining and lace is and is not stitched together, and the awkward tops of the diagonal seam, also make me feel the quality is questionable. I definitely would not pay full price for this, but the $14 I spent on eBay was worth it.

This fits really well on my shallow 28DD breasts in a 30D. I Have it in two colour ways though, which seem to have slightly different fits. The gun metal one feels smaller to me than the cream one, which fits me the best. I don't know how much variation there is across other colours in the range. If you are looking for a shallow friendly bra I'd say this one is a good one to try!

Just too small for me. Very cute bra. Light periwinkle lace over black. Seamed molded cup.

Nice comfortable bra, but I wish there was more oomph? It is lined for modesty but doesn't help much with shape and the vertical seems are obvious under a slub shirt, although I realize they are what help a bra lay well with shallow breasts. I do think that the gore is too wide for me, the wire sits on my tissue instead of beside it. I do like the wide set straps. I think if the cup were shorter I think I wouldn't be seeing the wrinkling due to my own apex being more splayed that the bra's, and there is some wrinkling side and bottom ... in the smaller of the two in the 30d, but it feels more comfortable than the 30c (which is supposed to be my 'sister size' for 28d) in order to fit my larger breast to prevent it from pulling my bra out of position. I wish the band was tighter, I can get a whole hand under the band on the tightest hook, which means I can't tighten up the straps as much as I'd like before it slips over the smaller's tissue.
I love how wide set the straps are, it gets all the breast tissue right to my armpit that I have with my wide and tall root breasts.
First bra I've tried outside TLBC venture, and I am pleased enough that I would keep it if nothing else works, but I will keep looking, as well.

A nice bra, it fits well but not a favorite. The wings are short for my taste but not a fit problem, the band is very stretchy (but also not a serious fit problem), and the color I ordered is hideous O.o I don't think I'll keep it.

Either my breasts are getting bigger or Betsey Johnson is cutting its bras smaller. I'm inclined to think it's the latter, based on some of the measurements between my older 30D - Betsey Johnson Intimates » Eyelet Lace Demi Cup (723325) and the newer ones. It just means that I now need to size up a cup to 30DD especially during my period.
