This bra is so beautiful in person! It’s a lovely smoky grey with delicate baby pink and white embroidery. The fabric is soft and not itchy. The cups are a three part, vertical seem cup with two layers of fabric. The inside of the cup is a monotone mesh with the outer fabric an embroidered mesh. The center gore, as well as the rocker of the bra consists of the same embroidered fabric with a small pink bow on the gore. The straps are a dark gray that coordinates with the gray mesh back band. The band on this bra is extremely stretchy! I definitely suggest sizing down. ... Even on the tightest set of hooks the bra felt loose, so the life of the bra wouldn’t last long. The back band had a 3x4 closure. Also be warned that the hardware that connects the straps to the back of the band squeak! The fit in the cup ran small for me, so I will be exchanging for a smaller band, bigger cup to see if I can get a better fit. This bra is just too beautiful to give up on.

This is a lovely bra that I ordered from Breakout Bras - my first order with them - they emailed me a 20% off coupon to entice me : ) It worked, lol.
However, I don't think this bra & me are meant to be as I'm having a hard time figuring out my sizing, and I plan on returning it for another bra : (
The problem with this bra is: I'm kind of in between band sizes 30 and 32. The band feels too loose in this particular bra (30GG/65J), maybe I'm just comparing it to the other Comexim bra I ordered (Basic Padded Plunge) where ... the band feels stronger. But if I were to "size down" any more in the band, that would put me at a 28 band, and I just think that would be too small (for example, today my "snug" band measurement is 29.5").
Also, the cups are a size too small - maybe they look okay in the picture, but to me = too small.
LadyNoName said with this bra to size one band down and three cups up; since my "normal" UK size is 30FF/G that would put me at 60K/L for the Onyks; that sounds to me like that probably is the right formula, however, another bratabase user review for this bra callie510 actually visited the Breakout Bras store and tried on the bras there, and said in her review that the 28 bands were all over the place, sooooo....after having to send this bra back, I'm just not sure that I would get something that is close to fitting. So, I plan to exchange it for a more "boring" and plain bra.
If I could go to the actual Breakout Bras store and try on the various 28 bands, etc., then I would probably take home this bra, this is the downside to internet shopping - not being able to try on many bras! Also, if I were to "size down" one band and "size up" three cups from 30G, that would put me at 60L, and for the basic padded plunge, I'm okay in 32G/70HH - to go all the way down to 60L for unpadded half-cup..that seems like an unlikely range for one person (maybe I'm just a skeptic!)
Anyway, I think this is a nice bra, I love colour, & other bratabase users have said this is a great fit, but this is a bra that I would like to be able to try on in multiple sizes.
TL; DR: A lovely bra, I just don't think it's meant to be b/c I live in Canada and I have to pay for the return shipping, and I don't want to have to send it back 3x.
