My second HG bra! If only the nude color was cheaper... Like the Portia, it has elastic sewn into the top of the cups to keep it from overflowing and gaping. The embroidery seems cheap and shiny and is already starting to fuzz up. But it fits! Close set and full on top with projection. Gives a natural rounded shape.

Short, projected, center full, even, slightly narrow, close set breasts....
Narrow and projected breasts: this 30FF has a 5.5" cup width and 11" of projection. This is one projected cup! And, the immediate projection is second only to Gorsenia and Comexim (unlined only). Obtaining this amount of projection in every other brand I've tried resulted in a "too tall" cup height. There are wrinkles in my narrower breast's cup, because the gore is not flat. The gore is too wide.
The 30F Dreamcatcher fit better in the top of the cup, but my slightly narrow breasts required more cup width. And, the yellow fizz colorway is softer, but that is ... due to several months of frequent handwashing by its previous owner. The black colorway is stiff. However, a soak in vinegar/water may remedy this issue. The fit is so good, I will tolerate the stiff fabric. How I would love Curvy Kate to improve the texture of this fabric. Ellace and Florence are soft, but Dreamcatcher is stiff.
Whereas Portia holds the breasts closer to the body, Dreamcatcher allows significantly more center and immediate projection. These are the characteristics that endear me to Dreamcatcher. My breasts are happy in this bra...until I sit. The cup painfully collapses. My breasts become torpedoes when I drive/sit, and I need the immediate and center projection only Gorsenia provides.
Dimensionally, Dreamcatcher is remarkably similar to Madagascar. However, Madagascar is...uncomfortable for me. I attribute this to Madagascar having less center projection and slightly less immediate projection. However, both bras receive strong recommendations from me. If you need more center projection, choose Dreamcatcher. More center projection is available in these CK bras: http://www.bratabase.com/list/glk/ And, if these are not center projected enough, Gorsenia unlined balconettes are the most center projected bras I've encountered.
With one reservation (the fabric), I recommend this bra for narrow, projected breasts. The fabric may be lamentable, but you, like me, may find the fit overcomes all fabric concerns. I'm armed with Eucalan and vinegar... https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />

My Stats: FOB, projected, close set, firm and dense tissue.
Size: Normally 28FF, got this in a 30FF. I got this in a grab bag from Breakout Bras. They accidentally sent me a 30FF instead of a 28FF. They were nice enough to send me the correct size.
Appearance: orangey balconette with green bow details. There are circular wheel looking embroidery throughout the cups.
Cups: decently projected cups and good length wires. Not too projected and not too shallow. The bottom half of the cup is a double layer and the part above the seam in single layer. Since this bra is in a cup size larger than what I normally take, there is some wrinkling on my smaller side and just a bit on my larger side.
Band: firm band, good support.
Gore: gore is of mid height and tacks
Straps: regular distance apart
Shape Under Clothing: a more natural and peaked shape which I'm not really into.

Projected, slightly narrow, even, close set, center-full breasts....
I still adore the Dreamcatcher, but this model had a wider gore than the 30FF Black model I received a few days ago. I need the most narrow gore I can find. Here is a link to the 30FF Black review: http://www.bratabase.com/bra/di8lj/

This is an almost perfect bra for me, and it's so close that it is frustrating! The center gore is just too high. The underwires are slightly poking into my breast tissue. I may have to let this one go https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

I really like this bra, but there are some wrinkles around the nipple in my smaller boob! Does this matter too much?
