    I would say this bra runs true to size in the band and cups.
    (The band stretches to 34", but it feels plenty firm to me.)

    I bought a 32FF, which has fully adjustable straps, and one layer of stretch lace at the top of the cups (larger sizes have half-adjustable straps and two layers of lace).

    I'm narrow, projected, and mostly even, and this bra works fairly well for me.
    I have quite soft tissue, and I get some in-cup quad in this bra (I do with the Lily as well).

    Some of the materials used do seem rather fragile. The lace is very soft and somewhat delicate, and I worry about it, and the thin fabric overlaying the cups, damaging easily.

    Comparing it to another bra with stretch lace, this bra does seem to give a slightly rounder shape than the Panache Jasmine.

    The Hettie feels nice and light; the cups have a soft, thin, and smooth lining and this same fabric comprises the band material. The cups and wings are covered with a fine mesh-like material with tiny holes in it. The lace at the tops of the cups seems flimsy and a little cheap to me - I'd need to be careful adjusting it to avoid putting my finger through it. Straps are ribbed and stretchy. I think they would be better if they were a little wider, say 3/4 inch instead of 1/2 inch, but I like wider straps in general. I have to adjust them almost to ... their full length and they feel too tight.

    The bra has quite good center projection and fairly good immediate projection at the wire, although for me the wire is still about 1/8 inch under my IMF. I don't think this would be a deal-breaker if the cups fit well otherwise, but it might get a little uncomfortable after several hours of wear. I can't fill out the cups at the top or at the center, so they are clearly too large. However, the wire fits well on the sides and encloses my breast tissue comfortably; it feels very secure but doesn't poke into my armpit, so I think the wire length is probably right.

    I like the shape that the Hettie gives me, but some may feel that it's too pointy. With the flimsy lace at the tops of the cups, I think there will be some jiggle. As for the gore, I have very close-set breasts so just about any gore bothers me. It's not actually sitting on breast tissue, but poking into it slightly. If this bra was available as a plunge, the shorter gore would be preferable.

    As for the color, I'm not a fan of white bras unless they are very lacy and decorative, and the Hettie in the white colorway is rather plain.-looking But this was the only color available in my size at herroom and I wanted to try it for size. The 32E I tried in purple was too small in the cups, and this 32FF is too big...so hopefully the 32F that I'm trying next will be the charm!

    The 30G of this fits me better even though the cup volume is supposed to be the same. I get a little in-cup quadding in the 32FF.

    I love this bra! The wires are a *tad* wide for me, but not so much that I feel any discomfort. I have relatively firm, evenly-full breasts, so the stretchy lace on the top works really well -- some bras with non-stretchy lace can cause me to quad, but the Hettie does not. I only wish this bra came in different colors!
