Calvin Klein 2892 gives nice cleavage and lift, and it is great that is it both seamless and tagless. I do wish the straps were a tiny bit wider for better support, because at just 3/8" wide, they feel a little thin. The lace gets itchy after wearing for a long time, so this is not really an all-day bra. I bought it for special occasions and am happy with it.
This bra is a push-up. It has graduated foam with "inner cookies" on the sides to create cleavage. The cups are small for me (I believe I should be wearing the 32E) but I am keeping it for when I want cleavage as some clothes can hide the quadboob pretty well. The center gore is odd: it's not very wide on top but it flares more than usual (it's 6 cm wide at the bottom).
The inner part of the cups is really soft and I am now wearing it on my sensitive/itchy skin days even though the fit is not too good.
Finally a bra that actually fits! Like many I'd worn the wrong size for years, so I followed Bratabase's measurements and recommendations and order this bra based on those. For reference my sizes are 30DD/E and 32DD/E and I am 5'6'' with bottom heavy breasts. This bra, while not the fanciest, is very comfortable and feels really silky-smooth on my skin. It is able to properly support my breasts and doesn't leaving gaping or wrinkles at the top like my other ill-fiting bras do.
I'm truly a 26DD, but Calvin Klein doesn't make 28 band sizes, so I got my sister size of 30C. It actually fits really well, the band is a little tight for a 30 and doesn't stretch too much. The underwire doesn't come up very far in the front which is good for me because otherwise it presses against my sternum. The lace at the top doesn't show very much through tight shirts, and doesn't itch! The bra is very comfortable and the cups give great support. The only problem for me would be that the top edge of the bra doesn't lay flat against my breast tissue, but i'm pretty sure that's more of a personal fit issue since i'm fuller on bottom. But this bra fits better than most others i've worn in that regard, so i'm not really going to dock off any points for that.
I have had a bra in this exact same model for several years, size 30D, which fit more or less wonderful except for the cups being a tiny bit too small for all but my smallest days, so I decided to finally get a 30DD and see if that worked better. For reference, I am very close set, slightly FoT, moderately wide root, with immediate projection. I don't know if it is just this colorway or a change in how they're doing the model over time, but the 30DD fits me in all ways smaller than the 30D does. The band is two inches smaller and hurts ...without an extender, the straps have to be lengthened the entire way just to loosen the cups enough to slightly fit my breasts in, the padding is thicker than the older version and leaves even less space in the cups despite half an inch more of cup depth otherwise, and the resulting quad boob, particularly on my larger breast, is ridiculous. I tried to give it time to stretch a little since the other one fit so well, but after three months the only change was the inability to return it. I would guess that this bra might fit a 28DD or even 28D great, but don't bother if you're a true 30.
Pros: gore is low and narrow, good for close set breasts, upper lace can hide a tiny amount of fit issues good wing height Cons: band too small cups too small, too closed on top straps too wide too much padding how about some colorways for more varieties of skin tones, eh CK?

A great t-shirt bra. Medium-width wires, comfortable band, and easily-adjustable straps. Wasn't a good shape for me as it was too closed on the top. Would suit average-projection or slightly projected shapes better. Fit is pretty true to size.
