I ordered several of the Dessous bras on final sale, not sure what size I'd need. But they were cheap, so I ordered a "variety pack"...ha! Didn't realize that the Sucre was a different cut that the full cup Dessous until I tried them all on. As other reviews have mentioned, it has ridiculously tall cups. It is more of a plunge but WOW, there is a lot of excess fabric by the straps. Because the fabric is sheer, you can see exactly what is happening inside the cup. In the case of my soft boobs which tend to just settle into the bottom of a bra, it ... isn't a pretty picture. With this style, I get major quadding near the gore but the tops of the cups by the strap are completely empty. As a result, the cups are super wrinkly (the contents are too). I intended to use this as a boudoir bra but I'm not sure it's even going to work for that.
Also, the band was much stretchier than I anticipated. I wear either a 30 or 32, depending on brand. I mostly wear 30 bands in super-stretchy Freya and everything else I wear 32s. I could have ordered this in a 30 for sure. On the tightest hooks, I can pull this band several inches away from my back. I have a mauve/black full-cup Dessous in the same size and it is about an inch shorter when stretched. Just an fyi...
