Bought several of these on final sale in different sizes and colors, to see whether any of them would work for me. Trying them all on has confirmed that this type of bra does not suit my soft, slightly pendulous breasts at all. I can see why they would be popular with women who have firmer breasts however because this bra is very sexy and fun. I just wanted to comment that my measurements are for the mauve/black colorway, which seems to have a MUCH stretchier band that the other 32" Dessous I reviewed (the "True Blue" colorway, which I believe is a newer color).

The cups on this are obviously too small for me, especially on my larger breast. I'm getting quadboob on both sides and a ton of tissue pushed into my armpit on my left side. The band is great, in my opinion. When I first looked at it in the packaging I thought it looked way too small, but it has a good amount of stretch. Normally I'd find that much stretch to be somewhat of a problem but because of the 3 hook closure it actually feels very firm and supportive.
I have pretty soft breasts that tend to sink down to the bottom of bras (even though ... I have pretty even fullness, I think) so I was somewhat skeptical of this bra because it looks so sheer and flimsy. The fabric is actually stiffer than it looks and because it's a pretty full cup coverage I was pleasantly surprised by how supportive it actually is.
This bra is gorgeous. And it seems very comfortable, even in the wrong size. I only had it on for a short time, though, so I might not be the best judge of that. The quality seems great, too, but again, I have no idea how well it holds up.

I love the idea of this bra, so sexy and fun! It fits well enough that I could keep it for when I'm not planning on wearing clothes, haha, but with a short on my bigger breast quads enough to be noticeable. I also feel like it doesn't lift and makes my shape kind of wide. Also the bow feel off the first time I tried it on so...quality???

I got this gently used at a bargain price from another Bratabase user. It's generally adviced to size up a cup, but I find this sister size to mine (UK 30G) fits great - a larger cup and I would have been swimming in fabric. The wire width is almost perfect, the centered straps is a welcome change from wide-set balconette straps, and while it doesn't feel like the highest quality bra, it is wonderfully comfortable. The band is rather stretchy so I wear it on the tightest set of hooks - a 30G would be perfect. It gives an uplifted, rounded teardrop shape - a little like the unpadded plunge balcony cut from Freya - but slightly more soft and spherical. The Papaya colourway with khaki details is simple and edgy but gorgeous. I have a feeling I'll be using this a lot in the warmer months when less (bra) is more.

Somewhat tall and deep for me in this size so I can't give an optimal review of the comfort or how the shape fits me (I probably would need a 32F). However, even in this too-large size the cups do give a rounded, minimized and compact shape that I think many people would find very appealing.
Due to the oversized cups, this moves around on me more than I'd like, but it is still comfortable.
The design is simple but attractive and the sheer mesh and colorways are original touches in this size range. Fabrics seem to be on the cheaper side--mesh is not as fine or silky as what you will find on a higher-end bra.
Band is cut smallish for a 32, though it is also very stretchy, I find.
Finishes are a bit sloppy, but nothing that can be seen when the bra is worn.
