As a 28HH/J (UK), I need to order bras with narrow wires and in a plunge style (close-set in shape) so ordered the Basic in a 60L, a size which was recommended to me. Unfortunately, the bra is too small for me. This could be a size issue, though I have heard from some others with the Basic that the cup runs slightly smaller than their other bras. I think I need a cup or two up in this bra, with quadboobing at the gore area and painful wire marks on breast tissue.
My breasts seemed to put outwards as well, though this may be the size and not necessarily shape. I was also disappointed that in the large cup sizes the bra style is not as pretty as the photo suggests.
Good = Does have narrow wires; would make a good day-to-day bra
Bad = Straps too wide, which I've found common in most bras in my size

I got this one to use as an everyday, practical, workhorse bra. I hoped the modifications would make it perfect, and the fit is pretty good, but not perfect. Cups are still wider than I need and the straps are still widely placed and in my armpits a little. The overall cup size is good but there still isn't quite enough projection above the wire so the wires sit about 3/4 inch below my IMF. Compared to my Yellow Bird which I ordered in the same size with the same modifications, it fits similarly but the cups seem a smidge shorter (which is a good thing) and the band is tighter. I can barely get it to stretch to 25". The overall comfort is pretty good except for it eating my armpits and pushing into my ribs as it rides down. Overall, this bra looks good and gives me that 'locked and loaded' feeling that I like.

Excellent bra, however it gives me an "orange in glass", slight quad boob on the top & not quite wide enough on side. Might need to order a cup size up, but is still fairly comfortable because the straps shorten nicely & cup doesn't come up too
high under arms and poke.Will keep it as I am losing weight & most likely it will work later. It is new so don't know how it stretches out yet.
Update: even though I have lost some weight, the cups are way too small!!!
