I also have this bra (and several of it's "cousins") in 36E. The band on the 36E was obviously too big, so I altered it myself, and the cups were a touch on the small side. I am pretty sure I really needed a 34FF, but since that wasn't available, I decided to just see how bad of a fit the 34G was. Well...
The band length is perfect. I couldn't ask for a more perfect band tightness--it's the Goldilocks of bands. The cups however, were just plain wrong for me. I fill the bottom OK, but the top has unsightly wrinkles--more on my smaller side than my larger, ... but still. The center gore tacked--almost too good. It dug in quite painfully, which on other bras back before I realized that you actually *can* buy a true plunge, I used to solve by wadding up a cottonball or something else under the center gore to soften it. That cottonball trick didn't work on this bra. If it would have fit elsewhere, I might have tried to bend the wires out, but since it didn't, I left it alone.
The cups come up too high on the side. When you are petite, it's a fine line between too high and tolerable. For me, too high and too wide-set straps were another set of deal breakers. These wires feel like they wrapped clear around to my back, and I'm always amazed at how big of a jump it can be between cup sizes. Especially when you're messing around with sister sizing and they don't make exactly what you need.
A note: the fabric is scratchy until it's been washed 3 or 4 times. Or at least that was my experience with the other 2 Betty's I've owned. I'm still not completely sold on the whole mesh thing, but since I am not constantly thinking about it, obviously it's not bothering me that much.
