About me: center full and close set, full on bottom with tall, gradually sloping roots that make me functionally even in some ways, narrow, projected
This bra is BEAUTIFUL. THe photos don't do it justice. It's a beautiful green (I don't know the correct color word) satin bra with a beige lace overlay. It has green and beige satin bows with pearl embellishments.
As for the cups, they are too wide for me, but the straps aren't too wide-set and there's adequate room at the gore and at the wire for me. The straps themselves are quite wide and soft and the band is ... comfortable to me. The height of the cups works for me, as well, which can be a struggle for me as I have a very short torso.
All in all, even though I had to size up for depth, I find this bra comfortable and supportive - my shoulders, back and neck don't hurt, which is what happens when I am wearing a poorly fitting bra, and my clavicles don't hurt, which is what happens when I don't wear a bra. I'd say it's on par with my favorite bra, a Comexim 3HC (65H), in terms of support and wearability.

This review is for the 30F green colourway. I bought this bra new for a decent price online along with the 30F - Fauve » Dominique Padded Half Cup Bra (0301) . I searched for this because I think it's so beautiful and unique. There's something about green lingerie that just makes me feel good. There is a soft cream lace overaly on top of a shimmery satin light-green cup. There are tiny green and cream bows on each strap, and on the gore, with little beads. The straps are covered with the same shiny green satin, and there are lace details along the entire band ... of the bra. It looks very well made to me. I usually fit 30F unlined, and 30FF (most). I find this bra fairly deep and narrow, which works for me. I could use a little more depth right next to the underwire, because it does push down out of my IMF, but I don't think it affects the fit or comfort too much. The band fits snugly and isn't too stretchy (less stetchy than the dominique). It is a 4 part half cup, and it's not too tall for my short roots. It brings everything up and centre, and rounds out my shape for a nice profile under a shirt. The seams do show under thin t-shirts, but it's fine under thicker tees and sweaters. The only complaint I have is that the gore is a bit wider and harder at the top than I like, and it causes a bit of soreness by the end of the day, so I may try gently bending this a tiny bit. Other than that, it stays put and feels great on.
EDIT to add: I realized that the wires are not wide on me, but the skin imprint looks a tad wide when I take it off because it's not sitting in my IMF. The wires aren't bothering me anymore after the first wear, so I have not bent them.

Such a gorgeous bra! I generally go for function over beauty in my bras, but I couldn't resist this one. Beautiful lace in a unique pattern over silky green fabric. A unique and elegant style. Its too big on me in this size, with gaping at the top of the cups. I think a 30E would fit perfectly, and I dearly hope I can find one since this bra is discontinued. Even with the size off, the bra is very comfortable, with the wires being the perfect width and firm but not too firm.

My shape is teardrop, with breast tissue spread out over my ribcage and all the features (and problems) shallow breasts have - tall roots to within two fingerwidths of my collarbone, wide roots wrapping around my ribcage, and firm unyielding tissue - with a lot more projection, as well as close-set and almost touching in the middle. The tail of my breast root is shaped like the Nike symbol and stretches back past my armpit.
This review is for the Willow colorway.
Shimmery! That is the best word for this bra. It is one of most gorgeous bras I have ever owned and is on par with my ... class="mentioned-item">30F - Fauve » Marla Padded Half Cup Bra (0291) in terms of sparkle. My potato camera does not capture the color or the effect with any justice. The combination of shimmery sage green satin and ivory lace, not to mention the embellished straps and beaded bow details at the base of the straps and the center gore, makes me feel like I'm wearing a priceless antique! I almost never get matching knickers, but now I absolutely cannot wait to get them!
The gore tacks and is comfy! Hooray! This is a constant problem for me, and always a big IF when I order a bra online. However, since I am US-based and Fauve is now out of business, I didn't really have a choice. The gore on my 30F - Fauve » Maya Padded Half Cup (0271) was one that just didn't work out, for instance, but this time it was my birthday, and I have been eyeing this one for a long, long time because of its 30s look, so I took a chance and got lucky!
I fill out the bottom of the cup on this one! Hooray! Fauve half-cups are more forgiving on me than most, and this one is even better than the rest of the ones I have.
The photos make it seem like the top of the cup wrinkles (like it's gaping), but it is much less than it appears. That is to say, all my half-cups gape on me a little, especially if I slouch, but in this case, there is a crease in the fabric on the left cup from its postal journey, and the super shiny satin exaggerates and highlights the smallest of anomalies in the cup fit.
The wires are aaaaalmost wide enough. Still too steep of a curve, but since it's comfy and I have yet to find a bra that can truly accommodate the shape of my roots, I don't mind. I do like that there seems to be a little room on the sides of the cup, though, since I have a lot of side boob and I definitely fill it out!
The straps are lovely. Lots of ladies don't like embellished straps because they're harder to move the sliders on, but I like them too much and I will put up with it so that I can wear this delicious bra. They are wide and comfy and easily extend long enough for me without worrying about having to take them in someday.
The band is perfect. I am amazed because the back panels are powermesh, and powermesh always bulges even when you have the right size because of the difference in stretchiness between it and the elastic at the edges, but this one really doesn't. It's firm but great on the loosest hook, and I think it will last a long time.
On the subject of how stinkin' pretty it is, this is the bra, out of the dozens that I have owned, that finally inspired my fiance to mention that he doesn't think it's fair for me to keep buying such lovely things when no one else gets to see and appreciate them, so I guess the Coco is going to be paraded around the house a bit!
My only complaint is that sage green is not the best color on me. It's a silly thing, considering I knew that and bought the bra anyway, but it means I want the pearl pink colorway about ten times more now, and it is so much harder to find. Plus, can you blame me for wanting to look as nice in it as it looks by itself? Excuse me while I go ogle it some more.
