I got the Fuchsia Pink Fauve Aurelia Padded Half Cup Bra in 30F yesterday and decided almost immediately to return it. The top edge of the cups gapes. This is in contrast to the blue Fauve Emmanuelle Padded Half Cup Bra in 30F, which I have been wearing every third day since it arrived a couple weeks ago. The 30F Fauve Aurelia's band is noticeably looser than the 30F Emmanuelle's. I can't tell if this would affect how well the bra fits because the loose edges of the cups are totally distracting. I would consider exchanging for a 30E, hoping the underwire went far enough back on the ... sides, but the Aurelia's pink color is less vibrant than in product photos. In real life, the "Fuchsia Pink" is slightly muddied. The white, pink, and green embroidery and appliques are lovely.
Fauve's high quality is evident in the Aurelia's fit and finishes. Like the Emmanuelle, the Aurelia does not pinch or poke anywhere. The cups are lined in the same soft, smooth fabric, and the underwires seem to be well cushioned.
