    The band on this is waaaaay too loose, it fits like a 30 band. Band runs more true to size in the black colorway. Cups were too small for me, so there were some in-cup quadding despite the stretch lace, the wires were too short on the sides, and the cups weren't tall enough. This also causes wrinkles on the outer fabric of the cup. Because of its stretch lace it works well for fuller-on-top breasts or breasts with tall roots. The gore was too high and wide for my super close-set boobs so it was rather uncomfortable. Not a fan of the appearance - don't really like polka dots and the color combination isn't exactly very appealing. But functionally speaking it's good quality.

    Blue/Teal colorway

    Almost perfect for my narrow, projected, short roots. I love the pink and black, and it's very comfortable. However, it's not quite projected enough for me, which causes the lace to fold, but I think a 28F might be slightly too large. Alas.

    Update: 28F is projected enough, but can't quite fill out the top of the lace section. Could take in the lace a tiny bit, unsure if I really want to keep it.

    Used to fit

    When I first bought it, it was uncomfortable because the gore dug in at the top. Also, the edge of the wire would dig into the side of my breast, but this isn't as much of a bother anymore. One side of the gore rests slightly on breast tissue (I am splayed), and it feels fine now. The stretch lace seems like it would be more forgiving of FOT breasts than the Lily (I wear Lily in 28F and the top area doesn't have any give). I feel like it wouldn't be as supportive on heavier breasts. I notice myself bouncing more in this bra. I would recommend ... this bra to someone with narrow roots, even breasts, and projection. On days when my tissue is less firm on top, the lace wrinkles a bit where it meets the cup.

    My biggest annoyance about the Hettie is the creaky straps. After three months of owning this bra, this bra won't shut up! Whenever I move my arms, the straps creak uuugh. It's just annoying when I'm in a quiet room lol.

    I also have the matching panties in size small. They look great with the bra, but I kinda wonder if I should've gotten an xs because the fabric bunches up a bit in the front. It looks more like a high waisted style, but I'm betting my butt is too big for the xs anyway.
