Please see 30GG review in comparison, here: http://bra.pe/MxC/.
Initially anticipated this style to fit exactly as the Cleo Sasha: http://bra.pe/MqA/ because the style is exactly the same from the printed mesh balcony construction down to the bow and lace detail. The one major difference is sizing! I first ordered 30GG expecting it to be perfect but it is actually made too big. In comparison, I wore the Sasha about a day before Alexa arrived so I know the cups are made larger. So, I also ordered this 30G.
Although there is a bit of a material issue in the cup, the ... 30G fits slightly better. Overall, the 30-band fits well, the material is excellent, comfortable, and most importantly there is no gaping or wrinkling. The only funny thing is how the 3-part seam is sewn together. It's not exactly "wrinkling" but there is an obvious pucker from the seam. I hope this will dissipate with a few washings. The center gore almost sits flat on my sternum but floats about .5cm away and I am forced to allow it because I really want to like this bra. Again, although I'm pretty disappointed there is a big fit difference between what could have been identical fitting season-to-season styles I am aware this is somewhat commonly occurring. Sure, disappointing for a non-UK customer who has to wait weeks for delivery let alone CANNOT try this style on in ANY mortar store. The 30G is the best fitting size between these two.
Stay tuned for photos for comparison.
