Pros: this bra is beautifully designed, and surprisingly soft and comfortable to wear. The powermesh band conforms snugly to the body without digging in, and the cups are lined in soft material. It gives uplift and a supported, rounded shape.
Unfortunately, the bra is too wide-set for me, though I can still wear it. The straps are too wide for my shoulders by about two inches - they are literally almost as wide as my shoulders themselves, and I don't have small or narrow shoulders. This creates some empty space at the upper, outer edges of the cup. They also dig in to my underarm.
The sides of the cup, just before the wires, also have some empty space, even though the bra cuts into my breast tissue in the center and creates some of the dreaded quadraboob. The wires are for wider, shallower breasts.
In short, the bra is attractive, wearable and mostly comfortable, but not a good match for my body type.

I liked this bra, great lift and style. I have gone down a few cup sizes and it no longer fits.

Beautiful bra, a cup size too small, very wide shallow cups so a bit of an orange in a glass effect, but otherwise great, supported fit.

My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.
This review is for the purple/ivory colorway.
I have loved this bra from afar since it first came out because it is utterly the cutest bra I've ever seen, but I believed that half-cup and balconettes just wouldn't work for me. Since finding my new 32F - Fauve » Bronte Padded Longline Bra (0331) to be one of the best fitting bras I've ever worn, when I found some on clearance I decided to give it a shot. As per sizing recommendations, I went down a band size from my usual ... 30 and was going to try up 1 or 2 cups (from a usual FF), but those sizes were sold out so I went with the next best thing to give myself a starting point.
The advice about the band was absolutely correct. The 28 fits great! It is very comfy and stretches just right and I have no complaints. If you want one (and can still find it), definitely order down a band.
The center gore is too tall for me, but so is almost every non-plunge bra on earth (and even then some). It definitely makes itself felt, though, and that is just within a minute of trying it on.
These cups are HUGE on me. I knew it was likely to be too big because it was a HH and not a GG or H as per the size recommendation, but I am positively swimming in them: They don't just "wrinkle, can't quite fill it", they stand away from my breast and the top edge gapes like crazy - it's actually better without the straps on, because my arm is not then in the way and squishing the cup - and the wires are too wide and sit beyond my super-wide breast root under my arm by at least half an inch. I have read that this is a bra made with shallower/moderately projected cups, so since I am shallow perhaps I don't need to size up at all? I hope that will fix the straps problem, too. I would love to try a 28G or perhaps even a 28FF to see if it would work better, but I'll have to find them first, I guess.
In person, it is still one of the prettiest and most squee-worthy bras I've ever seen. The double-ribbon bows and the scalloped lace and the woven satin ribbon details are luscious and I want to stare at it all day long. I will totally put up with the discomfort of the center gore in order to simply have it on, just as soon as I can get the rest of the fit right. Anyone got a 28GG they want to share?

size down because straps are too wide for petite ladies? i feel like this was designed with bigger backed women in mind, but it might work for different body types? Almost nothing agrees with my boobs anyway.

This is a lovely bra, I generally take a 30 band and this one fits me so it might run big. The cups are not my size though, they are very much too large on me, I got it on sale as an experiment so I was expecting the fit to be off some, unfortunately it is too big for me to wear.The straps adjust all the way which is wonderful!

Nice quality, but guessed my size incorrectly. Cups are a bit tall for me, but I'm still interested in trying my correct size.

This is just plain too big, so it has all the fit issues that come with that. Empty space on the top, cups too wide, straps too far apart. I have the Thrill Me in 28H and it's my best-fitting bra, so I'm hoping this in a cup size down will fit the same as the Thrill Me. My usual size is 30G

Definitely size up in the cup for this bra. I bought the 28HH because I'd purchased the Romance on a whim in a 28H while figuring out my size. It fit me just fine then, so I figured I should size up in the cup for a moulded. That probably doesn't make much sense, but it was a good choice because the 28HH fits me pretty well. It's not perfect, and maybe a 28J would be a better fit, but this is pretty good. Only a bit of spillage over the top which I can fix fairly easily. The band on this is a bit big, and I ... could go to a 26 if it existed in CK bras, but it doesn't. I could wear it comfortably on the second set of hooks the day it arrived. The one thing I don't really love is the height of the wire/wing on the side. It goes pretty far up and sometimes pokes me. It doesn't hurt, it just feels weird and more constricted than my other bras. It's a much nicer bra than I expected based on the pictures online, so that was a plus.

This is a beautiful bra, but way too big. This is two cup sizes up from my 'standard' size. I definitely need to size down a cup or two.
I usually wear a 30 band, and the rumours that the bands run large is very much true. I could do this one up on the middle hook straight away.
Even in the wrong size, the uplift and shape is amazing!
