    Didn't fit

    Unfortunately, the band on this bra runs large. Which is really bad news for my 27" underbust.

    The Mia is a single vertical seam half cup/plunge hybrid. The cups are wide, shallow, and very open on top. The straps are not fully adjustable and also not too difficult to adjust, despite the edge decorations. The gore is quite low, and the cup separation is about average.

    The gore also boasts the biggest bow I've ever seen on a bra. It's three inches long. It's pretty, but honestly the length is rather ridiculous. It doesn't get in the way though, nor is it uncomfortable.

    The wings on the bra are very ... high. They aren't uncomfortable, but I think overall I prefer lower wings.

    The padding on the cups is quite stiff and holds its shape rather well. It's pretty shallow on the outside, but the high wings shouldn't have any problems holding breast tissue in. It's not necessary for me, as I have very little outer fullness.

    The cups fit me pretty well. They're almost perfect, but there's a tiny bit of gaping on my right breast, which is slightly smaller. Unforunately, I don't get any lift in this bra. I was hoping for a repeat of my 30D - Fauve » Celine Padded Half Cup (0111) . Too bad.

    The straps are pretty soft and decently stretchy. They do adjust short enough for me, but only just barely. I'd prefer fully adjustable straps, but this is acceptable. Strap width is about average for a half cup in this size range.

    Other details: the lace embroidery on the cups looks flowery. The hooks are the wide kind at 3/4" apart. This bra doesn't feel especially plushy, but it's well made and quite comfortable, not at all scratchy.

    Really, it's a shame about that band. Even on the tightest hooks, it rides up in the back. I'd be wearing it already if I didn't need to alter it first. I really like this bra.

    Update: I sewed some elastic onto the band, and wow, I do get a bit of lift in the cups! Interestingly, I almost get quadboob/fall out of the cups when I bend over. It doesn't happen when I stand up, because my breasts take a different shape when I bend over versus when I'm standing up straight. Now that the band fits, this bra is a great fit for me.

    36DD

    Fits

    My shape: soft, pendulous, full on bottom with tall shallow top, measure to 36

    This bra is gorgeously made, with no detail spared. The lace and ribbon is perfect. On me, it looks nice but it doesn't offer enough support. The band is firm. It feels more like a plunge than a half-cup based on the gore height and diagonal cup top.
