This is THE best wireless bra ever created! It's my one and only everyday bra. I ordered the XS in black. My normal cup size is 30FF UK or 30H U.S. This bra does everything a wired bra does. It supports with fabric "underwire" slings and has side slings. The slings are thick, which in turn supports very well just like an underwire. It rounds me, separates me, has the criss cross function with the straps, and is v-cut so it won't peek out of shirts. This is exactly like a wired bra. I'm amazed. I get all the support and roundness of a wired bra, but without the pain of wires. Wires all seem to dig in to me and hurt my ribs. I wear it with the criss cross option. I love this wireless bra. No pain! This is the best bra I have ever tried and that includes wired bras. Do not stop making it!!! I will be buying more colors! More color varieties would be nice too.
Cake seems to have remedied the problem I experience in most woven, wireless bras: there is support for 30Gs and the cup doesn't collapse.
Like many wireless bras and bralettes, Sugar Candy is shallow near the gore. I quad a bit, but it doesn't show under thin knits. The quadding worsens after a few minutes of wear as my breast move toward the center. There is excess fabric in the outer portion of the cup that I want to shift near the gore. And, my breasts are pushed further east/west than they naturally prefer. The lift is exceptional; especially when one considers this has no wire. The heavy ...lifting is performed by layers of material folded along the base of the cup. This is more comfortable than a wire for me, but does feel strange. There is some bulk under each cup from the folded layers.
There is definitely space for immediate projection. However, there is no rounding after the lift; the result looks like torpedos. Grimace. But, under a thin knit, the cup is smooth. The Panache Alisha nursing bra was strangely lumpy. Surprisingly, I'm more likely to wear the 30GG Panache Alisha because the shape is more rounded and there are not multiple folds of fabric uncomfortably positioned under each breast.
Straps are fully adjustable and supportive. Band has 3x6 fasteners. The cup material doesn't stretch much. The band is fantastically supportive on my 28" underbust. However, I do wonder how long the 90% nylon/10% spandex will remain supportive. Supporting nursing mothers is a full-time job.
However, I doubt these folded layers would hold substantially larger breasts. It will be interesting to read what other users experience. Certainly, my breasts are well-supported, but I'm on the smaller side of the scale. Because the band does the heavy lifting, ordering the proper size may result in support for larger breasts. This band is supportive on my 28" underbust. I'm grateful!
Nylon dries quickly when wet. And, although I prefer cotton, the nylon may be a good fabric for leaking breasts and perspiration. Once the temperatures soar over 100 degrees F, I'll know more about the bra's drying and wicking properties.
Sadly, I don't think this bra is worth $60 USD. However, it does provide more support than any other wireless bra I've tried. That is definitely worth something https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> Sincere apologies for returning this before adding measurements. Oops.

This is such an interesting bra. I can't judge the fit well because it's quite a bit too small for me. I normally wear a 38JJ UK.
The inside has two supports made of doubled over fabric: one vertical and one horizontal at the band. They cross over on the side at the wing. This is designed to lift the breasts and push them to the center. It also pushes them from the center so they don't touch.
The band is nice and wide. The straps could be wider in this size. They cut in.
This bra just isn't supportive in my size sadly. It's only intended to go up to a 38HH according to the size chart. That seems likely. I think it could go up to 44G in sister sizing as the band stretches up to 44.5 inches. As long as you're not pregnant or nursing that is.
The fabric is so soft and comfortable. The printed label is a nice touch.
My shape: Projected, narrow, shorter roots, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue. Cleo Lily fits me best.
I'm currently a 30G, and I really struggled with whether to get a XS or S in this bra. The chart on the box does suggest an XS for a 30G, but I decided to try a S after reading reviews. The cups fit decently, but I can easily fasten the band on the 4th column of hooks (there are 6 total). I might be able to get away with a XS, but my breasts are already a little squished in the S cups (but not uncomfortably so).
I have a feeling I'll be returning this bra because I'd rather not pay full price for it, but it is soft and does seem to be well made.
Note: the style number on the tag is 28-8005-06. I'm not sure how it differs from 28-8005-07.
I wear a 28H and the small is a good fit for me. This is the most comfortable bra I’ve ever worn and the only non-underwire bra that’s actually worked for me. It’s so comfortable that I actually want to put it on, even just around the house. It’s more comfortable than no bra at all! The fabric is high quality and very soft, and the amount of stretch is not only very forgiving of a wide size range but especially good for asymmetry or other fit issues. It actually does lift and separate, rather than just squashing the boobs inwards and downwards like all other soft bras I’ve tried. This bra is basically a miracle. It does look very torpedo-y by itself but the shape isn’t super bad under clothing. It’s definitely not a round shape but it looks fine and it’s worth it for the amazing comfort. It does show nipplage through thin shirts, though.
