Bought this in a 30H first, the larger of my go-to sizes of 30GG and 30H, based on my experience with Flirtelle often running small. This model definitely runs small as I needed a 30HH and perhaps I even could get away with a 30J? Pleased with the fit of the 30HH though - not cutting in (FOT friendly), band is nice and snug, straps are not ridiculously wide set. Underwires are a bit wide but don't bother me. Slight orange in a glass - apparently I keep needing more projection :/ The fit under clothing is fine and I do wear this bra a lot.
Anyway, I also have this in purple, see my review on that one too: same size 30HH and while both fit, the purple has MUCH taller cups than this black Ellie. With the scalloped pointy bits on the top of the cups, this means the purple sometimes peeps out from under clothing. All in all I prefer the fit of the black!

Lovely bra, I've been wearing the black a lot.
Initially ordered a 30H (also black) but apparently it runs small. Then re bought the same bra in 30HH which fit well. Because I liked it I got the same size 30HH in purple - same brand, model, everything - but this had much taller cups! Difference is quite big (see pictures).
Both bras fit, but I prefer the less full coverage look of the black Ellie. The purple gives me some armpit chafing, too. So for people considering to buy this; keep in mind the black cups are lower than the purple!
About the type of bra or what breasts it would suit - I'm happy the cups are pretty open on top - no cutting in. Good for FOT or even fullness I would say. Wires are perhaps a bit wider than I need, but not uncomfortably so.
