So I've been waiting close to 4 years to get this bra. I had heard that there were issues with scaling in the large cup + large band sizes, but large cup + small band sizes should be okay. When I got this in the mail and took the bra out, analyzed the construction of it I just knew that the initial fit was probably going to be a dumpster fire without alterations. Luckily I had only spent $7 on this otherwise I would have sent it back. I got my original recommended size of 30JJ and purchased an extender as Id rather have something thats a bit ... too tight stretch over time and become wearable, rather than something too large. I now realize I probably should've gotten 32JJ anyways due to quadding and a floating gore after alterations because Im pretty sure this style doesn't come in 30K. The cups are insanely open on top with an equal amount of space at the apex but close to zero room at the wires. This left me with my breasts sitting in the lower portions of the cup and filling it out semi decently with a tent on top, there was so much fabric that it was literally up to my collar bones while also leaving me with a boob fold and floating gore, something I also experienced in CK Ellace. After taking in the upper section of the cups I was left with a bra that's actually functional, I do plan on lowering the armpit and moving the straps in a smidge. The cups also might be a size small because Im getting the tiniest amount of quadding. The gore and wing height are something that I appreciate and find comfortable. I dont think I could justify paying full price for this due to how awful the scaling is in the larger cup sizes and having to perform alterations to get it to work. I feel like sizing down would've just made the issues I was already experiencing, much worse.
