This was one of my first ever Flirtelle bras, I ordered both this one (black/pink) and another Flirtelle divine in Strawberry/Cream (http://www.bratabase.com/chest/dhjta/). The only difference between them is the colour.
The fit is perfect on me and it's really comfortable. My nipples is for once positioned perfectly, even though that means some of it may show through the upper panel as it's really sheer. Usually they tend to be situated to much to the middle and too low, but this one was right on spot. The shape is much more forward focused than most other brands, which probably is what I need. The broidery is pretty and ... flat and with the thin mesh fabric the seams are actually flat enough to not show through most tight fitting tops.
First I thought it wouldn't be supportive enough, but it actually is. There is no stretch in the mesh in the cups, and the double layers in the buttom of the cups really adds to the support. The shape is really nice an round, and still with some lifting. The forwardness actually gives me an hint of cleavage and even though it covers a lot, the slightly lower center makes me able to wear even not so high cut t-shirts, something I've never been able to do with Freya...
The band is tight compared to most other brands, as Freya or Panache, but for me that's just really good since I'm quite small. If you're like me a small 28, maybe even a 26 this is great, but otherwise you might want to size up in the band. Even though this isn't a Curvy Kate bra, the fit is almost exactly the same as most Curvy Kate non-padded bras, so if those suit you, this one is great. However, compared to the Curvy showgirl collection this one is at least a band size smaller.
For me this brings me back to when I was small enough to be able to wear the sheer Freya Eleanors, but this one gives you better shape and support, but is just as delicate looking.
+ Tight band
+ A hint of cleavage
- The support might not be enough for JJ/K-cups
- Not for rocket boobs or too wide set
- The band size might be too tight
