I thought that sizing up would make things better. They didn't. This bra is still very shallow and cuts into my tall roots. If you're very shallow, don't have much immediate projection, and have short roots, this may be for you.
This bra is great for wide breasted girls. The cups are actually separated a good amount (1cm wire to wire). Nice simple aesthetic too. Very soft and smooth and comfortable. Except for one issue that drives me MAD. The elastic used along the top and bottom of the band is round, causing you to perpetually feel like this bra has rolled up on itself and try to straighten/smooth it out!
I just purchased this bra. My first assessment is that this bra fits good and comfortably.
The band fits snug, holding the bra in place while raising my arms and moving around. The wires sit nicely against my chest. I have not experienced any trouble with them digging into my chest yet. There is some quad boob effect on my left breast, due to its slightly larger size. However, the cup creates a nearly smooth line on my right breast. I was not able to fill the cup with either breast when going up a cup size, so I settled for this fit. The fabric is super soft and comfy.
I used to totally love Betsey Johnson bras as it's one of the few US department store brands that carries a TTS 30 band. I've tried many of the styles, but in the past always purchased a 30C. In retrospect, all of these bras were too small for me, and actually after scooping properly, I've found that 30D is a bit small as well. I should probably try a 30DD if I see it around, but unfortunately it wasn't available when I placed this order.
I didn't realize it originally, but this particular style is on the shallow side and fits noticeably shallow. I own ...this in 30C in two colors and this is my first purchase of the 30D. Immediately even before scooping, there's some overflow on my larger side, and once I'm fully scooped, both sides show this effect (however this is not severe enough to be considered problematic and I seriously doubt that I could fill a whole cup size larger. If only this came in 30D+!). My side profile is also not as projected as I would like, but it's acceptable.
This style is also a partial band, which tends to cause problems on my bony ribcage. Without a stable cradle, the underwires on many styles will end up digging into my ribcage. This bra is also a little bit uncomfortable, but it's tolerable. I wish it were a full band though. Heck, I wish it were just properly styled like one of my UK bras--full band, wide elastic, wide straps, and a little more projection!
For the time being, I'll probably keep this bra as it is the best fitting t-shirt bra I've come across (Cleo Maddie fits me perfectly, but the straps are wide set so they are not really as versatile as a regular t-shirt bra; Cleo Koko Plunge fits pretty well but the band on the 30D runs large and 28E is far too tight). It's a plain and simple molded t-shirt bra with a J hook, so sometimes utility wins out over beauty. The little rose gold rose charm at the center gore is a nice touch though!

I've always been attracted to this graphic color and print, finally ended up getting one.
The band is pretty firm. There is a empty space at the bottoms of the cups for me due to it being shallower. I might have tried to make it work anyway in the past, but my bra wardrobe is pretty complete right now. A really beautiful bra overall!
First off let me say that I was a girl who thought her one true size was 34B for like... ever. I never went and bothered getting professionally fitted until later in life and have since been sized correctly and now LOVE bras. Anywho, now that I know I’m a 30DD/DDD, bras are way more comfortable and fun! This bra is a great find for those with shallow breasts with a lot of tissue, like mine! It’s a lovely everyday bra that doesn’t make me want to take it off first thing after work!
