A bra that (almost) fits! I probably should have gone with a 30 DD, but with an extender, this bra fits fantastically. As others have said, the wires at the gore dig (and my boobs are close together, so double ouch), but after I bent the wires away from my body, this bra fits like a dream. Fantastic for boobs on the shallower side.
Edit: I wore this with an extender for about a week, and the band stretched out enough to be comfortable for my 29 inch ribcage. Now officially a bra that fits!

This is a good basic bra. The lace does show through clothing a little bit. I wish the bra just didn't have any lace because this is an annoying feature. The cups are the perfect size for me, but the band is big. I have bras with a 30 band that are tighter than this one. It seemed tighter when I first bought it, but after only about a week it seemed to have started to stretch out. My ribcage measurement is 26, so now that the bra is broken in I've been wearing it with a Rixie clip, which I now have to move all the way ... to the strap because the band is so stretchy. I had to bend the center gore away a little bit since it was pretty uncomfortable in the beginning, but it's no longer uncomfortable. The underwire is not super comfortable either, it seems to be too far down, but maybe that's because the band isn't fitting very well anymore. When the band is tight enough from the clip, it's still uncomfortable because the underwire pushes against my ribs on the left side. Originally I was happy with this bra, but after owning it for a few months I'm not thrilled with it.

For something simple, this is a pretty great bra. After realizing I have been wearing the wrong bra size my entire life, this was the first bra I purchased in my real size. It fit almost perfectly. It looks great—it isn't too flashy, but doesn't look poorly designed either. The straps in the back swoop.
I have rather small shoulders and a small frame, so the straps were not a problem once I wrung them to their longest point. However, I could see someone larger than me having an issue with the straps being too small.
There was also an issue at first with the underwire being way too high and tight on the sternum, which irritated me for the first few days but I no longer notice it.
The lace is very thin and it will sometimes sink into the cups. However, this should not be a problem if you have round breasts (mine are much wider on the bottom).

I've seen this bra recommended so many times, so I had to try it out. The first thing I noticed is that the padding is a little stiffer and thicker than I'm used to--I'm from the land of cheap molded t-shirt bras. The band was really really tight when I first tried it on--I thought I bought the wrong size at first--but quickly stretched out. Now, at two wears, the band is loose enough that I can hook it on the tightest hook (though I keep it on the loosest). Hopefully this is not because my ribcage has some sort of magical bra-destroying power.
After wearing it all ... day, I had a few complaints, some of which might be because it's not quite broken in yet. The gore is much taller than I'm used to--again, I'm used to plunge t-shirt bras--and had a tendency to stab me in the sternum if I bent over. This probably would change over time, I'll stick a cotton ball under the stabbiest top part next time I wear it.
The next is that the outer edge of the wire bites into my ribs in a really annoying way. I'm not sure if I just have sensitive ribs--it doesn't seem off of the root of my breasts, much or if it's a fit issue?
The last is that the bra tends to unscoop and swoop itself over the course of the day. If I shift, a lot of breast tissue comes free of the cup and situates itself into the armpit or back area. I'm thinking this bra may be too shallow for me? Despite size, I'm not exactly what you'd call 'shallow'.
All in all, this bra is an okay, if mildly disappointing first development into owning bras that fit.

I tried this bra when a 30D was too loose in the band and too small in the cup. This bra was very tight in the band, but the cups were just slightly too big for me. Also, the gore came up high and was uncomfortable. If nothing else had been wrong with it, I would have just bent the wires back. I ended up returning this bra and not ordering any more Junas.

The black seems to be true to size. The only issue I had is that the gire dug into my sternum, but bending the wires slightly away from my body now makes is by far the most comfy bra I own. The lace doesn't lie flat, and it shouldn't when the bra fits correctly. If the lace lies flat, the cup is too small

Very soft fabric, but strong. It's a comfortable bra. Unfortunately the 28E is still to small in the cups, while I normally wear 28DD's

This bra should work, but it doesn't. The wires seem to be the right width and length but the outer apex towards the arms of the wire's curvature hurts against my ribs, and the gore becomes uncomfortable after some time. Not to mention the issue of the lace failing to lie flat.

This bra works great as a tshirt bra - the seams and lace aren't really visible under a shirt. The fabric is nice and smooth, and the bra is really comfortable.
I did have to go down a band size (and therefore up in the cup) from my usual size - the band is quite stretchy and I can easily fit in the 28.
The bra is definitely wide enough and shallow enough for my shape, but it is maybe verging on slightly too closed on top.
