My shape (as I've figured it out so far): average root width, tall roots, projected, even fullness, very soft breasts.
How this bra fits me: I bought this bra as I have the same one in a 28E and the wires are a touch too narrow for my larger breast, meaning the cup shifts down throughout the day. Overall I find this bra (28E and F) pretty good for my shape. This particular one - F - wants a smidge more apex projection than I have - there is about 3mm of space at the cup's apex on my larger breast. Tightening the strap up does sort that out ... by reducing the cup's volume, but also then cuts into my tall roots. The size is not much off, so I am keeping this one for the week leading up to my period, when I typically increase by half a cup to a cup size.
The material of the bra is excellent. Freya plunge balconies are, by and large, a terrible shape mismatch for me - they are far too structured overall and closed at the top. My tissue sinks into all the space at the bottom while the apex remains completely empty. This one is the exception - the material somehow manages to be both forgiving and not stretchy. I feel supported and lifted and secure (again, a feat with my squishy boobs!) but the cup follows *my* shape, rather than imposing its own.
The band is very soft, as are the wires. I wish the band were firmer - in my size range a giving band is usually not too much of a problem, but I think that my soft breasts need wires and a band that will not budge, so that the cup stays in place. Otherwise my breasts shift about and sink into any empty space they find. I am wearing this one on the loosest hook, but may see about shortening the band overall to improve its support for me.
