30F/FF tall and narrow root, average projection, splayed, full on top
Fauve bras are the right mix of sexy and elegant, making one of my absolute favorite brands. The Lucia is a gorgeous deep ruby color with black embroidery and trim. It gives perfect cakes on a plate cleavage and an upfront rounded profile.
I feel my only complaint would be how loose their bands are. Even though it's a 30 I need to put it on the tightest hook or the wires will slide down in front and the band will rise in the back. The decoration on the front of the straps is also not to my taste. In my opinion, ones that are simple black or the same ruby of the bra would look nicer.

Of all the Fauve Padded Half Cups I've tried (which is a bunch*), this is one of the ones that works the least for me. It's shorter, shallower, and wider-gored than its compatriots, and I'm full on top, projected, and close-set, so it's bad a match. It's pretty open on top, which is nice, but because it lacks height, I tend to fall out of the top. On the plus side, the band is nice and firm, not as stretchy as some of the others can be.
Straps note -- the actual strappy part of the straps is about 3/4", but the straps have lace on both sides ... which extends to about 1.5" at widest, so take note if you plan on wearing it with strappy tops.
*Here is how well they fit me, from best to worst. Better fits are deeper and/or more open on top.

First Fauve I've had and I love it. I just wish the cups weren't that separate.

This review is for the Ruby colorway, which has accents in chocolate brown. The blue Lucia, which has black accents, fits noticeably bigger in the cups than the Ruby colorway. Oddly enough, the center gore of the Ruby is also noticeably shorter than the blue Lucia's.
This lovely bra fits as a 30F Fauve padded half cup should. It fits like these other Fauve 30F half cup bras:
Evangeline in black, Evangeline in Biscuit (clear, golden beige), and Evangeline in red
Emmanuelle in blue/black
Maya in Butterscotch (clear, golden beige)
Chloe in teal, Chloe in blue, and Chloe in black
Veronique in magenta
Marla in blue, Marla in purple
I think you can understand why I ... was so annoyed that the 30F blue Fauve Lucia was not cut to the same depth as all those others.
To return to this ruby Fauve Lucia, it feels luxurious, as you would expect from Fauve. It gives dramatic, cakes on a plate cleavage. It has striking embroidery and trims. The Lucia model has an embroidered bow, placed asymmetrically on the left cup only, where it meets the strap.
The straps are partially adjustable. They continued the satin material and trims up the front of the straps. I'm petite, with somewhat high set breasts, but the straps shortened short enough for me. Each cup has two vertical seams.
The chocolate brown embroidery and trims are a dark chocolate color. So a high end milk chocolate, which has about 60% cocoa, also resembles this color. This color does NOT resemble Hersheys milk chocolate. I'm not judging you if that's what you like; I'm just pointing out how dark this brown accent color is.

I was SO excited to get the blue Fauve Lucia Padded Half Cup in 30F because it was a past season color, and I already had about ten Fauve half cup bras, padded and unpadded, that fit perfectly. I also knew this satin fabric was silky to the touch and gorgeous, because I already owned the Ruby color.
This does not fit! The cups are decidedly larger than all the other Fauve half cup bras I already had. I later discovered the 30F Fauve Pearl Padded Half Cup also runs big in the cups. But first, let me point out that this blue colorway is noticeably bigger in the ... cups than the Ruby colorway! Argh. The blue Lucia Half Cup Bra is also bigger than these ten Fauve bras in the same 30F size:
Evangeline in black, beige, and red
Emmanuelle in blue
Maya in beige
Chloe in teal, blue, and black
Veronique in magenta
Marla in blue
That's TEN other Fauve half cup bras that fit and this stupid blue Lucia that doesn't.
It is gorgeous, though, and the matching briefs are also gorgeous.
