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!

This bra is now way too shallow. I need something with more projection.

update, see 30DD review
the forever perfect is nothing too fancy, but gets the job done. the band is too loose for me, and stretched out even more after long-term use. when i tighten the band to simulate a 26, the cup cuts into my larger boob. the larger boob is also where the bra shows under clothing. on my smaller boob - the one that fits - it does not show.
compared to other shallow molded bras like the cleo maddie, the shape of the forever perfect is more closed on top and fob. and the wires are much wider. i had been struggling to find a ... molded cup bra that fit (cleo maddie: too narrow, cleo juna: too fob), and when i found these, i bought lots of them and basically lived in them for the past year. these served me well. and they're cheap.
also, the quality is not on par with other high quality brands like panache; there's a lot of pilling on the cups and straps after a few months of use.
tl;dr, forever perfect is good if you have kind of shallow boobs and don't want to buy expensive molded cup bras

This bra is very soft to the touch. That was the first thing I noticed. As such, it is very comfortable to wear.
The cups are pretty shallow. I think they may be a tad too shallow for my shape, but it's a molded cup so you can't really tell. It does cut into my tall roots a bit. Interestingly, the padding is thicker over the nipple area than at the edges. You're not going to need nipple covers with these.
The band is quite stretchy (boy, I really have a talent for picking stretchy when I need firm) and the first day I was wearing it on the ... tightest hook. It was comfortably snug at that point, but I will have to alter it sooner rather than later.
The j-hook on the back can convert the bra into a racerback, and even better, you can move it to your satisfaction. I'm greatly pleased by this, since it gives the straps more room to adjust. I had an old ill-fitting bra with a j-hook, but it couldn't be moved, so I never used it since it attached too far up my back for me to be comfortable with it.
Update: I sewed a ribbon onto the bottom elastic and reduced the overall stretch to about 29.5ish inches. There was some pressure when deep breathes afterwards, and I could hear/feel the gore/wires creaking as they stretched, but it was pretty comfortable otherwise. I had to move the j-hooks up higher to adjust the straps to my liking, and now they're too high up for me to use, but that's ok. I was expecting that anyway.
Update 2: On a whim, I loosened the straps a bit and used the j-hook. It changed the fit of this bra from decent to great! Without the j-hooks, I could feel that there was space in the outsides of the cups, and the center/top cut in ever so slightly. In racerback mode, all those tiny fit issues are gone. The sides of the cup become super shallow and the cups no longer cut in. It holds me in place super well now. Before, I had consigned this bra to "not to buy again." Now it's the best fitting molded/t-shirt bra I own! Which is great because it comes in awesome colors I can again look forward to owning.

Like all t-shirt bras, this one runs shallow. It is the wrong size for me (30D; I wear 26F) and thus the band is too loose while the cups are too small.
That said, this is a really nice bra and I wish that it came in my real size. It is so soft and comfortable. I still wear it, even though it doesn't fit well, because it is so comfortable. Maybe someday Betsey Johnson will make 26 bands... sigh.
