My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.
This bra is so pretty. While I am not especially a peacock fan, I do love the beautiful blues in the color range, and the Flaunt showcases this one beautifully. The black lace is woven like feathers! I could only see the green embroidered eyes in the photos online, so this was a nice surprise.
I exchanged my 28GG - Curvy Kate » Flaunt Bra (CK106) for this size (and paid a small fortune to do so), and I have to say it fits much better. The band is still adequately stretchy ... in a 28 and fits really well, although it seems to have the same problem I have noticed in lots of bras with powernet bands, which is that they bulge a little (due to the dissimilar stretchiness of the mesh and the elastic) even in the correct size. The straps are also still too far apart, but they are not as bad as in the 28GG.
If the cups run true in this model, I actually sized down from the 30FF I tend to default to in other brands, and in spite of everyone's advice to size up because of its shallowness, it works pretty well! The bottom of the cup is still too shallow for me, but the bra doesn't slide down that much, and the unexpected bonus is that I get a little bit of a boost from it!
The wires are a teensy bit too narrow for my roots, but sizing up wouldn't help because it's more of an angle problem I have than anything (they look like the Nike logo under my arms). The plunge is lovely and low, though, and the gore tacks nicely.
