In Ivory. I measure approx 28HH; round, evenly Full-on-Bottom and Top, close-set and possibly a tall root as well,
Band: It is too large for me, rising at the back. I like how thick the band and hooks are, however, and it is very comfortable in that regard.
Cups: Too small for my larger left side with gore jutting out and a lot of tissue spillage at loose lacey top part when gore is pushed flush to my sternum.
Wires and Gore: Are wide (as can be seen by the empty fabric on my right side and creasing below cup), typical in this size range but is one of the ... better ones from my recent try-buys = Bravissimo’s range Alana + Thea and Cleo’s Marcie, Lily, Millie + Lucy. Gore is like a Cleo Marcie bra, it is very narrow and stabs into my chest as there is no fabric between the wires to allow the gores to curve off of my breast, thus a little uncomfortable.
Cup Fit: Lace seems to be very stretchy one me compared to Cleo Millie and Lily's and is a bit gaping where the strap and cup meet on my right; the left seems fine; not sure how this will be affected when I try the 28J.
Construction/Quality: I love the elasticated part of the wing (see image) and the lace is very soft and double-lined (print on front, thin mesh behind), its extremely pretty and of great quality as well.V ery pretty material, love the lacing detail on the straps and on the wings. I think a different kind of bow would be prettier than the lace at the gore although I like that they tried something different and it could easily be removed.
Comfort/Profile: Find it comfortable to wear and I like the profile shape as – like a lot of reviews – gives a lovely round shape and it’s so rare to find something as girly and lacey as this in my size. Will be returning it for a 28J.
