Close to perfection! This bra is my best fitting bra for now. The wires are wide enough for me, no quad-boob, slight wrinkling on my smallest boob. The band is a little big for a 32, I fasten it in the middle hood instead of the first. The design is a classic 4-part cup with side support similar to 30G - Panache » Andorra Full Cup Bra (5675)
Pros: -Amazing fabric, soft like silk but still firm and supportive. Not strech -Wires quite wide -Straps are fully adjustable, they are soft and quite pretty -The bra looks nice, classic. Its nice to have a bra that is not made of lace ...or «spacer» molded. -The elastics (straps, band) do not cut into the skin (great for my sensitive skin!) -Good projection, quite deep cups. I would say the projection is a little bit less than 32G - Panache » Jasmine Balconnet Bra (6951). -Good side support, I feel like my brest stand in fron of my chest, not on the sides. this gives a slight minimizing effect.
Cons -Straps might be too wide for women with sloped shoulders. Even if they are wide, the fabric does not cut in my underarm -Good coverage, not the best bra for showing cleavage -The shape is a little bit pointy, but I've learnt to appreciate it -The seams are thin, but will show under a tigh ou light coloured t-shirt.

edit: this bra no longer fits, and the cups have always been way too wide.
I love this bra.
The good: - Side support gives awesome projection. - No bouncing, even when e.g. running down stairs, shaking cocktails, jumping up and down. - The straps don't sit extremely wide on my shoulders. I can actually wear this bra under a tank top! Plus the straps are thick and comfortable.
The bad: - The top edge of the full coverage cup can be a little snug for me, and I'm even/slightly full on bottom, so beware if you're full on top. - This is more a note than a bad thing. The underwire is really wide; I think this is because of the side support thing. So while the far side of the wire won't sit at the root of your breast, it's not uncomfortable and and your boobs don't fall into the side part of the cup or anything.
I bought this because I've been recommended the Fantasie side support bras a few times..and it was also on sale. It's a miss, though.
Band was a bit snugger than I had expected; still a loose 36 though.
Cups are wide and kind of shallow. Gore didn't even come close to tacking. I'm actually not sure what shape this bra is really meant for. I got a weird upside-down 7 shape in it, the bottom managed to not have enough space while looking almost flatly horizontal (how?), I had in-cup quadding under the lace, and yet the lace still gapped. Very strange, I've never had a bra fit like this before.
The pattern is cute (I like the pale pink with grey-brown pinstripes), and the material is nice and soft; very lightweight while not being sheer. It would be a great summer bra...if it fit.
According to the fit assessment here, this bra fits me pretty well. And that's true in most ways. In general, this is a fairly comfortable bra, especially for hot weather - it's very light and breathable,
That said, the wires in this bra feel very stiff to me, and the side panels seem to give me a strange, segmented shape, that puffs out a bit at the sides. I can make either cup fit at my IMF, but I can't seem to make both of them fit at the same time. It seems like that could be related to my being pretty splayed, but it isn't ...something I'm experiencing in other bras. It may be more related to the gore, which is a bit too high and a bit too wide, but not so much that it is painful. It does seem to have room for my immediate projection, and doesn't usually get pushed down over the course of the day unless I am doing something like gardening that involves constant bending over.
I still haven't nailed down all the aspects of my shape, but the top of the cup fits relatively smoothly (again, most of the month), which is not easy for me to find in a bra without stretch lace.
I like the low height on the side, but the stiff wires don't compensate well for the fact that one of my boobs in not so much bigger than the other, but wider, so the stiff wire/low height can poke a bit if I don't have it adjusted just right during peak boob times. I think a softer wire would pretty much solve this problem for me, but since it isn't a problem all of the time, and I feel pretty good wearing it, I'm okay saying this bra fits.

I loved this bra. It had the shape I have been wanting (slightly pointy 'rocket' or 'bullet' bra shaped) without being too pointy. It had the side support I wanted, but the straps were just to long for my short frame. I couldn't get them to tighten up enough to get the lift that I wanted and it made my breasts point down to the ground instead of outwards. After wearing it only once, I decided I couldn't wear it any more.
This bra is very strange for me. I think its partly because its made for longer, less round boobs? The shape is pointier than I like, but even stranger, there's a weird shape on the side. I guess its the 'side support panel' - but its like it flattens out my boob on the side? Like there's a cone shape and then a sudden change of angle in the part that holds the side boob. There's even a slight indent at the seam. Hubby hated the color, too
Bought for my mum. Fits her well. She's got soft, close-set breasts and average, maybe slightly narrow roots for her size. There's only some wrinkling at the top edge, but it doesn't affect the fit or support, and a size down is too small. On me (usually 30G) it's a total disaster, obviously.
I have been to multiple bra fitters and the last one I went to uses this bra to measure you and when the pricey bra they sold me started flipping I went back and tried this. The wire poked through on me last year so I bought this one last September. The wire poked through the gore twice and the right underwire broke in half so now this bra is more thread than bra. I am currently looking to find a better fitting one because I don't like how the lois fits.
