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.

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.

Well, it's too bad this one didn't work—it's very pretty and comfortable, though the band seems very stretchy to me and that's not my cup of tea. There's obvious orange-in-a-glass syndrome as well as a little bulging at the top of the cups. There's also the strange too-small-on-one-side thing, but as the bra is obviously not for me I'm not going to fret about it this time.
Again, too bad this is not available in, say, 28E—it's really comfy yet so pretty!

I wear this bra primarily when I'm bloated right around my period.
If I wear it any other time:
1. the cup is too big, especially in my smaller, left breast.
2. the center gore is just a tad too tall and perhaps too far apart. I imagine if I were to put a .25 inch dart in the gore, I wouldn't have the next problem.
3. the wire are too long/deep for me, leaving space between the edge of the breast tissue and the cup at the outer bottom but NOT at the top. I can pull up the cup but the pectoral muscles near the armpit keeps pushing them down.
I'll update the review when I next wear it for my bloated day.

This bra was extraordinarily comfortable - until a few hours in when even on the tightest hooks, it was no longer supportive and made my back and neck hurt. And it's doing that when it is brand new. I am sad because I love the shape (fairly wide and round) and it is so cute. I get slight gapping at the top, but so far I get that with everything. I love this enough that I might try modifying it to make it wearable for a whole day.
ETA: Now that I have modified the band - I can tell the cup is too small. I will list it for cheap once I neaten up the stitching.

The band is very stretchy. I have to wear it on the tightest hooks and it's still not tight enough. I have pain under my right armpit if I wear this bra all day. Otherwise comfortable.

This bra fits me the best, it's pretty, band is fairly tight for a 30 but not quite tight enough for 26/28 band ladies. It is a three part balconette bra with lace detailing and so it does show under thin or tight shirts. I usually wear a cami to counteract that. Also, the straps aren't fully adjustable so that's no good but other than that, I really like this bra. It's just not the most versatile due to its texture. I actually cut the top bows off of mine so that they wouldn't be showing through my shirts all the time.

Too small on me in the cup since I'm 28FF or 28G. Band's a little loose, too. Lovely bra though, for the right girl.

Other than the under wires digging into my sternum this is a pretty great bra. After wearing it for a couple of hours it does seem like the straps on the right side may be set a little wide because I can feel them in my armpit.
