Though I haven't reviewed them on here, my current best fitting bras are @Cleo meg is 30G (with an extender-- slightly too big in cup) and @Cleo melissa in 32FF (slightly too small in cup). There's also my Bravissimo @Starburst that fits well in 28H (except that I need an extender). I consider myself a small-ish 30GG. I've been trying to figure out my Comexim size for a while, and I thought this was a good guess after trying on a Green Velvet in 70HH that was MUCH too big (at least two cups)-- as a smaller cup didn't make sense based ... on conversions I looked at.
This slightly too small in the cup, and the wires are a little too narrow-- the just reach my rib-cage, and don't extend past at all (and I do have a small amount of breast tissue along the side that I can see is not fitting into the cups). The cups are a bit too tall. I think the size I need is a 65J with lower cups-- but it's possible that a 70HH would also work (I think Green Velvet may run large).
Compared to other plunge bras, I found the separation between cups perfect, and the gore height nice and comfortable-- enough to make it feel supportive, but low enough that it certainly wouldn't show under most shirts. I do have some minimal quad-boob because it's slightly too small for me, but I can reduce this by loosing the straps. And I WANT TO, because this bra is very comfortable, and it's GORGEOUS and feels well made. The band is a true 30 band-- it stretches just to 30 inches, and is comfortable on the loosest hook. The fabric inside the cups is smooth and comfortable, and though the strap isn't very stretchy and is fairly tight, it feels really comfortable. The strap placement is also excellent for my fairly narrow shoulders.
The cleavage is really intense, but I think that's because it's too small in the cup-- which is good for me, because I prefer not to have too much crazy cleavage going on. I tried on a shirt briefly, and wasn't able to see seams at all... but due to the coloration of this bra, I'm sure it will show through thin or light colored shirts.
All in all, this bra seems to be fantastic so far, and I look forward to wearing it!
