    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.

    This bra was love on the second (or third) try. When I found my proper size in three or four years ago I tried this bra and it fitted. For ages I have not noticed this bra, I was very deep in my journey into polish bra styles.
    Then I was able to visit a shop carrying this bra during my last vacation and this time I bought the bra.
    It fits well on my rather high set full on bottom breasts and even if it is the standard for shallow breasts I do not notice that it gives my breasts a shallow shape. It shows less cleavage than my polish bras but in the side view I prefer this look before my polish bras.
    Another bonus are the straps. I do not need lots of support from them, so I really like the thin straps which give the bra a less massive look.
    On the downside the bra is making some noises when worn but I thin this will pass by with wearing and washing the bra

    This is the first bra I purchased in my true size and it fit's wonderfully. After all the research I've done about my breast size and shape this truly is the best bra style for me. As far as comfort I think I still need to get used to the tighter band.My only complaint would be that the straps don't adjust long enough. I have to loosen them nearly all the way. Otherwise it's a wonderful fit.

    One of my favourite bras to not worry about. Since it's a continuity and rather inexpensive I don't worry about damaging it. I can also forget I have it on. Cooking? Cleaning? Facing a diabolical villain? No problem. Well, the villain might be. I have noticed with constant physical labour (usually stretching or reaching up a lot) the band can shift around, otherwise it usually stays in place. Speaking of the band, this absolutely seems like a 30 band. It will happily and comfortably stretch to 30. But the mesh won't ride up on regular days on me. It is reasonably loose on me, though, again it stays ... in place.

    The cups are rather open on top, a personal plus for me with how much my breasts change depending on the day. It seems to be small on my bigger side though. The cups have enough projection for me. Doesn't do a lot for uplift and the attractive split straps are too wide for me. Maybe I I just don't get any uplift due to the loose-ish band? The wires are a bit wide for me, maybe a couple fingers, but creates no fit or layering problems.

    The wires can be creaky, sometimes I hear them flexing. They're also soft wires. Also while measuring I noticed that the wire channel has about 3/4" of just empty space at the end of the wire (next to the wing). I don't feel the wires shift around in the channel.

    The outer mesh and lace-y fabric on the cups isn't friendly towards most thinner shirts or most tank tops and will show through.

    Fits almost perfectly but I just can't do underwires. Removing the wires and taking a dart out of the gore to compensate for the resulting non-tacking looks promising though.

    mm ok? the wire seems to stay in my IMF, at least below the boob. On the outer sides, it isn't wide enough so the wire leaves marks on my breast. In the center, the gore tacks but was pushed off center by my larger boob. I think we can blame the overall wire width for that.

    looks a bit small visually?

    Having previously gotten the 32D and found it nearly perfect in all but the too large band, I finally bought the 30DD and am much happier. The band is just right for me, the cups still fit exactly with a very pleasantly open cup for FOT breasts, and the back of the band is a little wider in the 30DD, so it provides fractionally more support. It continues to be very soft, with soft wires, so the fact the gore is too wide for my close-set breasts is actually a negligible gripe that I can't even feel. I am going to remove the center bow, but I figured I would leave it in for the pictures this time.
    There is still the matter of the center seam of these bras showing very visibly under thin shirts, but personally if I like a bra, I don't care if someone can tell I'm wearing one.
