oof ouch owie my sternum!!!!
STRAPS; i don't know if it's the very very silky fabric used for the straps, my bad posture, or WHAT but if they DON'T feel like they're digging in at the tops they're falling off. they're too far apart also again, digging RIGHT into my armpit even more than my first 30dd, starting to think i just have narrow shoulders >_<
UNDERWIRES; the outer edges do technically go onto my breast tissue unless i JUST scoop and swooped (my boobs tend to swim in this bra, more in cups section), but for some reason it's not uncomfortable at all? so i think it's wide enough ... it's just all the OTHER issues that get in the way? could afford to be very slightly wider though, the bottom underwire is fine no issues past me not knowing where to put my bra, the GORE. HOO BOY. i fold up toilet paper to put in the gore to cushion it's so uncomfortable. if i didn't know i can't handle tall gores before i know now!!!! also the gore is wide enough it goes on my breast tissue but again, it doesn't hurt? or if it does i can't tell over how much the underwire is attacking my sternum lol
CUP; not sure? i'm almost certain it's too projected for me, right after scoop and swooping and with shoulders back/sticking chest out my bigger boob fits it just about perfectly with only some gapping right next to the gore and not filling the very bottom at all, my smaller boob doesnt.... take into it as much as my bigger one does? if i slouch EVEN SLIGHTLY/am not sticking my chest out there's gaping at the top on both, if i have my normal posture you could see my nipples if the top wasnt so closed. i think this cup is ultimately just too tall for me and too projected(??? i can fill it when i'm sticking my chest out fine and the weird vertical-pointiness fits my poofy nipples well i guess? but bras are probably not supposed to be sized to your nipple so). also yeah if you're looking for a rounded soft appearance this isn't the bra for you it makes my boobs look perky and bigger as a result of that but the lacy fabric on the outside isn't sewn to the padding and has a big vertical seam right over the nipple that sticks out a good amount and makes your boobs look pointy/kinda like you arent wearing a bra (or at least not a padded one), so that's interesting. not really a problem for me as i like a pointier boob look but i'm not sure i like it when mixed with perkiness
BAND; too loose! i decided to try a bra in the "fits 30 inch ribcage" section, this one is 30.2 which sounded perfect cause i'm bony so a looser band sounds good... but my snug underbust is 29.5 inches. on loosest hook if i pull my arms up it goes on my boobs not a lot but like, a centimeter or two higher than i'd usually put it, it feels like my boobs are falling through/not being supported even if i dont do that, it's to the point when i want actual support i go to the middle hook (it has 3) and then it's pretty okay? it still feels a little roomy for my boobs in the cup which is probably due to the tallness and when i pull my arms up it still goes up Slightly, but it's okay, not uncomfortable either at least comfortable compared to the Gore Of Death. with the backwards-and-upside-down trick on loosest hook it is falling down LOADS in the back AND uncomfortable/chafing? middle hook stays in place better but it's hard to tell anything else cause of the chafing(?) and also oof ouch owie the squeezing.
WHAT I LEARNED; tall gores are unbearable for me, maybe 29.5-30 inches exactly is a better band measurement for me, non-shallow bras are gonna make me sad, i love padding!!! please hide my nipples thank you!!! i need shorter/opener bras in general, underwire might just always be uncomfortable for me?? impulse buying the first bra i see on sale is...a learning experience for sure, but i want /comfortable/ bras now. don't try to put on a brand new bra with even slightly wet nails lol!!

This bra has a band that feels tighter than others, probably because it stretches less. The cup size works well because it is more of a half cup so covers my bottom nicely without gapping too much on top. This was the bra that made me realize I am very FOB. One downside is I can really feel the band constricting my ribcage. I have only worn it 3-4 times so maybe I can either get used to this kind of fit or get a non-stretchy bra extender. It is not my most comfortable bra but I love the way it makes me feel and I love the lace.

I liked how this bra doesn't have much coverage at the top, but the lace shows under shirts and the bra is not smooth. Wires are too narrow for me and it just was not the most comfortable bra.

I am a shallow 30D with close set breasts, fuller on top than on bottom.
I knew getting this bra that the band was likely to be too wide for proper support, but this bra was reputed to run small in the cup and I couldn't find a 30DD cheaper than retail price, so I went for it anyway. It was pre-owned and showed it, so I had to bend the wires back into shape and cut off the destroyed center bow, but otherwise in good condition. The cup volume fits perfectly and the wing height is great, but unfortunately for me when I read all the ... reviews that said the gore was 1" wide, I didn't make note of the height of that gore. All of my other 1" width gores fit fine for my close breasts, but those are plunge bras. In a balconette with a high gore, I clearly need it even closer, because the wire sits on my breasts at the front and the center seam slides slightly to the left (although that much may also just be a small manufacturing error). For now, at least, the problem isn't irritating my skin and I don't have a lot of alternatives, so I'll keep it until I can get something better.
Positives: bra is soft, the lace disappears under clothes, and the shape and style is flattering.
Negatives: too much cup separation, straps a little too wide, band too stretchy for solid support.

I really like this bra because of the way it looks and its overall fit. I'm used to wrinkling in my cups because of my wide, shallow boobs, so the little bit of wrinkling at the top didn't bother me so much because it felt so comfortable. However, I'm returning it because those vertical lines on the outside look stupid under shirts.

I absolutely love this bra. I put it on and it fit 99% perfect. My only thing with it was that I have to use the middle hooks because the band is so stretchy, so I might try a 30DD (instead of the 32D), to see if that helps. The fabric on the inside is super smooth, and although there's a seam there, it didn't bother me at all. The cups are one color, and the lace overlay is a different color. Same deal with the band; sheer blue behind cappuccino lattice/netted fabric.
Every part of this bra was comfortable, for me personally.

My breasts are shallow (as in my breast tissue starts up high, not that my breasts have no projection) with narrow roots. The vertical seams and almost horizontal top of the cup are a really good fit for the shallowness, but the wires are too wide for my freakishly narrow roots.
It is a comfortable bra, though the band doesn't seem to have a lot of give when it's new. It has softened up quite a bit. The lace and heavy seams makes it not so great under sheer shirts, but it's not as noticeable as I thought it would be. How much do I like this bra? I ... had this bra, migrated out of it, bought a 32DD, migrated out of it, and now I have a 30DDD. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I wore this bra in a rotation of 2-3 other bras for about 1 month before tissue migration moved me onto a bigger cup. It was always washed by hand with Forever New and air dried. It's in great condition, barely worn. The only "damage" to it is very, very light brown spots on the underside of the cups where they rested against my antique dresser. I took pics of these spots, but they didn't really show up in the photo.

It's really pretty and comfortable, and gives me a nice shape. It fits well after "scooping and swooping" but sometimes needs re-fitting a couple of times throughout the day, though I pretty much expect that with any bra, since I have conical breasts with very little fullness on top or bottom. The vivid colors are great, and the lace isn't too textured to wear under a t-shirt, though the vertical seam is slightly visible through thinner fabrics. The straps don't have a lot of adjustment, but there's enough for me. The band fits well, and is comparable to the band fit in other bras I own in the same band size in other brands/styles.
