I've wanted this bra since I first got sized as a 32DD when I was 16. I remember seeing it at Nordstrom and just pining for it, despite the $60+ price tag and its impracticability. In the past, I've tried the bra in a 32E, which fit in the cup, so when I found out (a couple years late!) that the bra was available in a 30 band I ordered right away. At first I got a 30FF because 1) I had tried the 32E when I was like 17 and figured my boobs had grown a bit and 2) I'd read that Elle Macpherson runs small in ... the cups--but the 30FF was definitely too big for me.
First off, the bra is gorgeous. It's so delicate and old-fashioned. My only qualm is that it's not very supportive: the shape it gives is natural almost to the point of droopiness. I'm sure it'll do for looser-fitting tops, however. I've not yet worn it for a full day, but it seems reasonably comfortable, especially given its material. I normally wear 28 band; this 30 stretches to 30" max, so it's refreshingly true to size (certainly smaller than some Freya 28s that I've bought recently!). I can wear it on the second hook and it's adequately supportive. I also really like that the band has three hooks.
If you fit the size range and are looking for a beautiful but slightly impractical bra, would definitely recommend this one.
