This is a really pretty bra and the colour I bought (aqua) is really fantastic. It's in a balconette style so the cups don't come up too far, and it has embroidery on the tops of the cups.
I find the cups give a really nice rounded shape. There's a bit of gaping on my smaller side, but that's what happens when one side is smaller. Otherwise it fits really well. The band is nice and snug, the wires don't dig in, and there's no cutting in from the cups!
The thing I didn't like was that I found the cups itchy initially, ... but it went away after a few washes.
I found the cups to be nice and wide, but a bit shallow. I sometimes find bras that have wide cups, but they're also too deep. If you are wide, but your breasts don't stick out too much (sorry, can't find an elegant way to say this), this bra might work for you. This is one of my favourite bras now https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Update: I bought this bra in late November 2010. It's March 21, 2011 and I'm now having to wear it on the second hook.

Edit Aug. 22: I had the opportunity to try the Lucy again in a 30FF and 30G in a shop. The 30F I reviewed here was definitely too small for me. I was thrown by the fact that the quadraboob manifested in the softer lace section rather than over the top of the cups. Watch out for that!
Sadly, I didn't walk away with a new Lucy. I have about half a cup size difference between my breasts, and I found that this bra really exacerbated the unevenness in a way that no amount of strap fiddling could banish. I think this ... is because I'm between sizes, and because of the low point of attachment of the lace to the cup.
Original review: This is a beautiful bra, but unfortunately it doesn't work for me. The deal breaker for me is the way in which the lace section joins the cup. My breasts - on both sides - bulge into the lace, creating a peculiar quad-boob style effect that is quite visible under clothing. I will be (reluctantly) returning it.
The band is tighter than most 30's I've tried, but as I'm a small 30, it's still very comfortable for me. The cup is a touch small; it fits my smaller side perfectly but there's just the slightest bulge over the lace on my larger side. The overall shape is lovely; rounded but not minimized, and it doesn't look wide at all from the front.

Like this bra so much. The gore is not quite tack, but otherwise it fits well.

With this bra, I have confirmation that my breasts are narrow. This is the first bra I've worn that allows enough immediate projection that I don't find boob squished into my armpit and out the top of the cup. I could use a bit more immediate projection and narrower wires: a dramatic change from Natori Feathers! However, I will never wear this bra. As a minimalist, I want a few comfortable, concealing, supportive bras in my arsenal. The lovely polka dots, seams, and my nipples are visible. Most offensive are the wires; comfort is paramount. Goodbye 30F, Lucy.
The 30FF is much more comfortable! Thankfully, I ordered both the 30F and 30FF or I would have NEVER revisited Lucy. Oh, the importance of a well-fitting bra!! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />

Does not fit me; bought for a friend. Very firm band.

I got the white colorway first and loved it. I'd never been a fan of unlined bras but the Lucy is great. The pink is even more beautiful but the cups are too big.

I have the white colorway and the cups on the pink seem bigger.

Fantastic fit! I'm sold on unlined bras. Fits like a dream.

Perhaps a tighter band size (28F) would help with the slight wrinkling of the top of the cups. The half-mesh top is not an incredibly flattering style (creates a pucker line), but it fits ok.
