This bra is one of the most beautiful bras that I own, is deep purple/aubergine (is not a brownish purple, is aubergine!), with pink, silver and golden embroidery, really really pretty.
Cup depth and width are average, I'm mean not too shallow not too deep and the underwires are quite average at 5.2", still a little too wide for me. But my bigger issues with this bra were the gore width and height, way too tall and wide and the underwires were too hard and rounded.
I performed some bra surgery and now fit me, more or less, changed the underwires for a pair from an old plunge, less ... rounded and more narrow, now the cup width is 5" and the cup depth 8.5", was 8.3 before; reduced the gore height and width and crossed the underwires at the top, now the width is a little more that 1/2" and the height 2", is not a drastic change but fit me better. I tought that I will need to reduce the band legth too but was not necessary, the band is in the small side for a 30 band.
The cups are quite invisible under clothing, in spite of the embroidery and lace, nice open cups, low coverage but not so much (I prefer more low coverage), the band is stretchy and not very firm, straps are very comfy and not wide set at all (compared with EM or Cleo for example).
The lace at borders is quite harsh, I tolerate it in the cups but at bottom of the band is too much, wore the bra yesterday and I still have a rash where the embroidery lace border touched my skin. I will remove it the border trim, probably the bra will look less pretty but more wearable.
