This bra runs about half a cup big, so those in between sizes may find a better fit in their smaller cup. I'm usually spot on for Brav's 30JJs, so I have a little bit of wrinkling, but not enough to need a 30J. It gives a very uplifted shape with a high apex - it is somewhat pointy in my size, but still rounder than the Dotty Spot or Alana. Quite east-west and separated - it looks a bit wider from the front than the Alana. The wires are pretty standard for Bravissimo, which is relatively narrow for a high-end cup. The band feels like a fairly firm 30, and is made of a comfortable stretchy material. I loooove the emerald colour with black lace overlay, I just wish it didn't have the extra lining, it makes it quite a bit less delicate looking.
So I would recommend to get this bra a cup size bigger than you usual Cleo/Panache size. It offers more coverage than for example Cleo balconettes but feels also much more supportive. The lace on top of the cups is NOT stretchy. So keep this into account. In a too small size it might cut in. Band runs remotely tight, so get your usual band size. Shoulder straps are not fully adjustable.
What I like about it: -Stable construction -Good coverage (fabric comes higher than average Cleo Balconette) -Makes you feel supported and secure (boobs of steel) -Wires do not come too high under the arms -It comes in different pretty colours up to K-Cup
What I dislike ...about it: -Shoulder straps roll themselves inward and cut in badly https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> -The upper section of the cup is quite big so in the “J-Cup and Up size range” it might look different than on the bravissimo models - the wires are quite stiff (which is good for support, but bad when you have to bend them to fit your shape) - is a bit uncomfy at first, needs some time to break in
Comfort: 3 (-2 for shoulder straps – they are from hell!) Appearance: 4 (-1 because it looks actually better on the pictures) Quality: 4.5 (maybe I have to add something here after owning it for a while…)
Overall I give it a 4 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
