Edit 2022: This baby is old and kind of stretched out by now. The wires are stiff for sure, and after a long day they do make my ribs a little sore. I'd say this bra fits me well most of the time. I've gained a little bit of weight, the shoulder straps are starting to slip more easily, so it's a little bit too small now.
I feel like this bra is smaller than other bras that I own. Though I'm measured 30E with the ABTF calculator, the 32 band does actually feel snug enough to prevent a ton of ride up, and I do need a 32E to not have the horrendous quad boob in a 30E. The underwires are wide enough. Just kinda sad that Wacoal doesn't make it in 30F.

The only reason I got this was because I was obsessed with how pretty it was! I didn't know a lot about my breast shape when I bought this, and it was totally a shot in the dark. To my surprise, it was one of the best-fitting bras I've ever tried. My boobs are round, close-set, somewhat narrow-rooted, even fullness, average to slightly projected. The material is excellent quality and doesn't feel too delicate to handle. I love how plush the cups are, and the lace is lovely. DDD sizes have three thin straps instead of two. I only wish the cup was made of three vertical panels ... instead of two, which would have reduced the prominent vertical seam. But it doesn't look too bad under clothes.
Sizing: The band runs very small -- make sure to sister size up one. I knew this beforehand, so I bought 32DDD when my measured size is 30G. The wire is definitely on the narrow side. Immediate projection is good, but if you're overall very projected you should get a cup size up. The straps are unusually short, but shouldn't be a problem for most people. I have a long torso and my boobs are kind of low-set. I don't usually have to pull out the straps all the way but I did for this one.

I really wanted to love this bra, but I just can't do balconette bras - they dig into my sternum and it's just too uncomfortable for me. This one was the closest I've come to being totally comfortable in one, though, and it was very cute.
Edited to add: I ended up keeping this as I discovered I could push the wires down in front and that got rid of most of the discomfort

This bra is so super cute and sort of fits for brief wear (e.g., bedroom use), but is a definite shape mismatch when worn all day as it lacks the immediate projection my FOB breasts need. Instead, my breasts fold over within the cup and the wires slide down out of my IMF. The black lace overlay over the bottom blush fabric is sexy, and little bow at the gore and triple strap details are really pretty too. Coordinates really nicely with your basic wide-side black lace thong, although matching panties are available (another reason I'm deeply sad it does not fit). The micro-fishnet overlay continuing around the band adds a sexy, but not in-your-face element. Additionally, the inner cup facing is super soft and comfortable. I wish I could keep this because I love the style, but I'm letting it go as I continue to search for a similar Comexim that is a better fit.

Instead, my breasts fold over within the cup and the wires slide down out of my IMF. The ivory lace overlay over the bottom blush fabric is really gorgeous, and little bow at the gore and triple strap details are really pretty too.

I wish I could keep this because I love the style, but I'm letting it go in favor of a similar Comexim style that is both beautiful and fits well.

This is the first bra in my correct size (was wearing a 34B) that felt right when I put it on. It's very comfortable, and very pretty. I like that it is lined because I'm not a big fan of visible nipples. The lace is smooth enough that I could wear it under most of my knit tops without it showing, but probably not t-shirts.

Because this band was too big, the straps left deep, painful indentations on my shoulders within five minutes of wear. This was one of the first bras I purchased from Amazon and I returned it before measuring. Perfect for shallow, wide breasts but won't allow projected breasts to sit at the wire.

I've been looking online at the Ciao Bella in blue and really wanting to try it on. My local Dillard's had this in a few different colors but didn't have a 32DDD for me to try on in blue. I ended up trying on the Cappucino color which I'm not a fan of, but the fit was pretty good. The gore was a little high on this one, but everything felt fairly comfortable. This bra felt a little stiff in it's construction and the lace looked a little lumpy under clothing. I ended up deciding not to get this one, even though it fit well. It just didn't wow me.
The one positive from this was that, after trying on several bras that worked for shallow breasts I was able to finally narrow down my size. The 32DDD fits me much better than the 32DD in most styles.

The rosin color (gold stitching over black lace) is very cute, and the construction of the bra itself is very comfortable! This is my first time trying a B.tempt'd bra so I was surprised by how soft the cup lining was, and the comfort of the band. There is a seam that runs up the inside of the cup, very close to if not directly over where the nipple sits - this didn't bother me at all, but people with sensitive nipples might want to be wary of this bra.
Fit-wise, I'm closer to a 30 band so it's no surprise that this rides up a tiny bit on ... me. The gore doesn't tack and I get a little bit of quadboob - I'm heavy on the bottom and slightly projected, so this may fit better for people with shallow breasts, or I'm just wearing the wrong size.
After wearing it all day, it's certainly comfortable. The quadboobing made me worried I was going to fall out of it, but through jumping around and bending over everything stayed. Not a perfect fit, but still a decent bra for its price.

This is the first bra I've ever owned that has made me feel pretty and actually almost fits. I have very tall roots that it accommodates quite well with its half-cup shape. The mesh wings are very stretchy but I'm still on the first hooks. The one thing I really hate are the straps. It's this weird satin feeling fabric split into three small straps that don't stick very well to the shoulder. I would also prefer two vertical seams in the cup as opposed to the one it has right on top of my nipple, but it's not the worst.
