    I love this bra! I think it is much prettier than it looked online and so flattering on me (which is extremely unusual)! I'm dealing with wide-set, average to wide short roots, upper deflation with some lower projection, very soft. I think this bra is actually the best fit I have found, so far and it is definitely my current favorite! YAY!!!

    The flexible, soft cups seem to be somewhat uniquely shaped and it works well for me (but I can see why it wouldn't work for everyone.) I think I generally fit more like a 28DD/30D, but in this model, the 30DD is where it's at. It's ... slightly big, as I have a tiny bit of gaping at the top edge of the cup, but it honestly quite minimal and the lace trim helps hide it. It still looks and feels beautiful.

    I want to say the cups run somewhat small, except they are kind of stretchy and I think that it would actually fit true to size if it is the right shape for you. It is not quite as shallow as I thought from the pictures. It actually gives me more forward projection than I expected and a nice lifted, rounded shape. The wings are tall enough to give me the side support I need and the lightly padded cups provide shaping without being too rigid. The band feels true to size. Although a little bit squeaky, the cups and band are so comfortable!

    The thin double straps are pretty and feel OK on me, but I can see how they might not be comfortable for people with heavier breasts. (I don't know if they are wider on larger sizes). They don't have any stretch so they do dig in to my shoulders a little. They are also unusually short. While they fit my 5'1 frame, I have to make them almost as long as they can go. The gore is on the wider side (around 1 inch width), so it's going to better fit people with some space between their boobs.

    It is worth noting that the 30D, which I also tried in the same colorway, seems like almost a different bra. Something about it seems disproportionate to me. I need short cups, but those were way too short. The cups were definitely too small and gave me serious quad boob, so while I think the DD might be true to size, I think the D runs small. Which is odd. The wings weren't high enough. If I had tried the 30D first, I never would have tried a different size, because it really was that different and I didn't like it at all, even before I put it on. In contrast, I fell in love with the 30DD as soon as I opened the package!

      Looks great, love the color!

    • I love the color! It looks great!!
      I had some weird issue with the sizing too- I tried on a 30C in red and got major quadboob, so I went to a 30D in black and it was much too large for me. I wonder if a 30D in red would fit me better? I love this bra - it's so pretty. I really hope that I can find a size that fits. Maybe I need a 28D?

    I have a better idea of what shape my breasts are now. I've been told they're set close together, so this bra digs into my sternum and the edges of my root. I fill out the bottom of the cup, my breasts are slightly pointy, so I can't completely fill the depth of the cup and there a gap along the top, even when I scoop and swoop.

    30dd fits my 29" ribcage perfectly, cup depth and wore width are perfect, I did have to move the wires outwards to make sure my breast tissue was fully encased in the cup, gore tacks, doesn't dig in. I did notice my right boob is slightly smaller then my left , so I'll be adding a tiny bit of extra padding. Over all great lift almost rounds my boobs out up top the way no other bra could. Shallow up top with slight bottom fullness and slight protection, also I have slight inner fullness, seriously loves how it rounds my upper portion out and evens the overall roundness it's great

    My first (almost) well fitting bra! This one encloses my breasts perfectly and there's almost no gaping on top, so absolutely perfect for me shallow, FoB, wide root breasts. Only small complaint on the fit is that the straps fall every now and then (though not nearly as bad as with the 32C, so I'm happy!).

    As for the bra itself, I love how soft and comfortable it is. It is also very pretty in the black, red and golden color.

    For reference, I am petite (5'1"), with some asymmetry due to mildly tuberous breasts, east-west, and somewhat shallow breast tissue.

    I got this particular color bra as my "nude" color. I have very cool, rosy pink undertones and I find that even nude colored bras made for Caucasian women always have a warm undertone to them. This pale pink color does not show through under any light or pastel colored outfits that I wear.

    But oh wow, this bra makes me so pointy looking. I wear this bra with looser fitting outfits vs. a bodycon dress.

    This Ciao Bella fits as expected compared to my other 30DDs. Unlike the Fairy Tale colorway I picked up around the same time, this one fits me as expected with no obvious fit problems. However, right now I am between 30DD and 30DDD, and I would say that 30DDD is more of a correct technical fit for my larger side while 30DD fits my smaller side.

    This Ciao Bella fits as expected compared to my other 30DDs, with the exception that the band runs a little more snug. In practice, I don't notice much difference between this band and other bands. Unlike the Fairy Tale colorway I picked up around the same time, this one fits me as expected with no obvious fit problems. However, right now I am between 30DD and 30DDD, and I would say that 30DDD is more of a correct technical fit for my larger side while 30DD fits my smaller side.
