I sized up to a 34JJ because I've found CK's unlined balconies to run a bit small. I do have some wrinkling on the outside of the cup and at the very top of the lace, but I'm not sure I could go down a cup.
This bra is really well made and comfy. All the material on the bra is very soft. As usual with CK's larger cup sizes, I wish the straps were wider and scaled to a larger, heavier breast. These bothered me less than CK's straps usually do, though.
Again: super comfy. I tried really hard to convince myself to keep this bra, but I ... just can't justify it when it gives me such an obvious bubble/quadboob where the lace meets the laminate cup. There's only a very thin piece of elastic at the top of the stretch lace which is the usual culprit for this kind of quadboob issue, but I guess I can't tolerate anything there. The only unlined bras that don't give me this effect at all are Panache Envy and Clara. This bra is constructed very similarly to those two, with the exception of the elastic and side support on Envy/Clara. I'm really tempted to keep this one and see if I can't remove the piece of elastic.

I don't know why I love this bra so much. It just fascinates me with its suuuuper lightweight mesh, and its lace that goes on forever, and its little jaunty, curvy, turned-up "nose" it makes. But I can't keep it. It is just soo bouncy there is nowhere I could wear it but for my own pleasure in my own house. The side appearance isn't as good, either - very projected with a blunt, rounded shape - like a blimp. And it's not very good at hiding your nipples, much to my daughter's horror when I tried it on. (;
But I do love the light feeling. When you pick it up, it's like a piece of fairy lace. I'm thinking if I tried a smaller cup, it would giver better coverage and support. Maybe. But I also heard - maybe here on bratabase? - that they are going to be putting out a version with non-stretch lace? Maybe I could try again in the fall.

This is a very good bra for breasts with lots of immediate projection, and it works for my slightly FOB, narrow-rooted breasts. The wires do not dig into my armpits, and it seems pretty true to size. However, the stretch lace is very, very soft and stretchy, to the point where it gives me in-cup quad-boob at the seam between the power mesh and the stretch lace. This is not a good bra for soft breasts. On me, the fit is almost identical to the 34J I tried on, but the 34JJ is both a) slightly more comfortable and b) has worse in-cup quadding.
