Oh how I wish this bra fit! Sadly, the line only goes up to a G cup. The material on this style has stretch to it, so I can squeak by but it really doesn't fit correctly and I ordered it when I was still adding 6 inches to my band size, so it is far too big. "Falling in Love" is the perfect name for this bra - swoon! Such a lovely bra, well-made, the softest fabric, great shape & support (it has side panels for additional support & shaping. The straps are slightly padded & the perfect width; I could wear this comfortably all day. They ...are half adjustable, which may present a problem for some but fit fine on me as they don't slip once adjusted. Sexy in the most elegant way. And I love that while it looks like gorgeous lingerie, it wears like a practical bra (as in you can wear it with just about anything - for all the lace & seaming, it is smooth enough wear under a t-shirt; cups are low enough to wear with fairly low cut tops but cut perfectly so there is no falling out or readjusting needed.)
Bravo, Fraulein Annie! Can't wait to see what the next offerings are from this line - hoping for expanded size range.
From the eyelash lace to the red stitching in the pink cups, this is a truly exquisite bra. The lace is soft, the fabric is silky and the finishing really shows that this was designed with care and attention to detail. The red & baby pink colour combination is unexpected, fun and beautiful.
Fräulein Annie works with a different sizing system than the one I am used to; besides, I saw a few 30-back girls saying the 32 fit, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Unfortunately the band is very very stretchy and I could fit a whole hand under it. I am usually a 28 or 30 band in Ewa Michalak.
Overall, I love the bra; if only they made smaller back sizes I wouldn't hesitate to buy one!
I ordered this bra (cinnamon/almond colourway) because it looked like a thing of beauty, and on that score it doesn't disappoint in the slightest!
The upper lace is incredibly soft, I almost can't feel it against my skin at all, and the lower part of the cup is made of a fabric with the most amazingly luxurious feel, outside and in.
Since there're no 30 bands, I ordered the 32F because I'd read the bands run firm enough to make it worth the risk. I wouldn't say the band on this runs firm though: it runs short, definitely, but it's quite stretchy. On the loosest hook the band feels ...a little too loose for my preference, but the gore tacks and it doesn't feel like it's going to ride up, so I guess it's just a matter of how quickly the band stretches out on me. Hopefully not too fast!
Unfortunately, I get a bit of a pointed shape with this one. I think it's partly because 32F is a sister size up for me, and partly to do with the cup construction: the straps can only really lift the outer section of the cup, and the low gore height and soft upper lace section means there's no lift at the gore. Would be fine for those with firm tissue, but my soft tissue needs a little more wrangling in that region. So while I feel I get a forward shape, it's not as perky as I'd like.
I'd say the cups run pretty true to size. The upper lace section is stretch lace, so it would be very forgiving on upper fullness. In fact, to get a rounded shape in this bra I suspect you need FOT breasts. And/or a firmer band: when I experimented with pressing the wires more firmly against my ribs to simulate a tighter band, I got a much better shape.
The underwires are very soft and flexible, some of the least firm wires I've ever encountered.
The soft lace and the low gore aren't enough to really hold on to/support my soft tissue inner fullness, so for those who like to feel they're not going to fall out of their bra and have inner upper fullness this one won't make a great everyday bra option.
It is breathtakingly pretty though!
*Edit: After another trial wear, I decided the band was too loose for me and that was the reason for the shape being off. To get the right band tension I needed to go straight to the tightest hooks. When I contacted the vendor about a return, they told me FA have recently starting making 30 bands (only in the cinnamon colour way at this stage), so it looks like they'll be expanding their range. I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for any 30 FA's from here on out.

Bravo, Fraulein Annie! Can't wait to see what the next offerings are from this line. Right now, this line only goes up to a G cup and now that I'm wearing the correct band size, I'm sized out.
