Immediately drawn to the style and look of this bra; it's so pretty! I had originally purchased the 32D and then found this 32C on sale. This one turned out to fit better. Because the 32C fits so snug and the 32D is only about a centimeter wider/deeper, I'm actually considering keeping the 32D for when my breasts grow during my period.
I'm 28.5" underbust but DKNY doesn't seem to have 30 bands so I had to settle. The loosest hook is comfortable and the middle hook is fairly snug. The tightest hook is doable but then the cup cuts into my larger breast.
The cups are soft so they ... don't offer much shape for me. Even so, they fit my breasts perfectly; I've got short, conical, somewhat shallow boobs. No gapping in these cups when I bend over, which is something that doesn't happen often. The bra straps are fairly separated with this balconette style. Works for my broad shoulders.
My breasts are quite separated and I find the underwire width is great for me. They may be a bit too long though, coming up a bit high on my sternum. I do get some armpit rolls on the sides but it's nothing too noticeable.
The greatest flaw of this bra concerns the straps toward the front of it; seems they used some glue or paste to overlay the edges that wrap through a decorative hoop. It makes the edge of this particular area sharp and irritating. Since the straps are close to the armpit, it scratches whenever you move your arm. May be contacting a friend to help me re-sew it. Until then, it'll have to be stashed away in my drawer. Quite the bummer since it's such a cute bra.
EDIT: Was able to fix the scratchy piece by filing it down with a nail file.
