    30HH

    Fits

    Just a perfect fit for me. The band feels the same in 30HH as it does in my Totally Tartan and Hello Dollie in 28J and Flourish in 28HH. Cups are pretty closed on top, but I'm really short-rooted, so that's not a problem. Boobs are resting in the cups in the most natural way and there is a wonderful amount of uplift at the same time. I feel perky and supported in it. Definitely love the bra!

    Hasn't set fit

    38J, Gore sticks out too far, I was able to put it on the tightest hook. Cups are too small. I measured the gore as being 4.25" high, and the cup separation as 1" wide.

    • Could you please add the measurements you mentioned to the bra's measurements? That way they can be used by others and incorporated into the system. thanks.

    30HH

    Didn't fit

    This bra fits very well! I have deep breasts with a lot of projection, and I often have trouble finding bras with enough space at the bottom. This bra has some minimal folding over at the bottom, which goes away with adjusting. I also like the thick straps and wide band, although the straps on this bra are a bit wide-set for me! The wings are also a bit high.
    My biggest problem with this bra is the shape it gives. While some will like the swooped-up, almost pointy shape, I cannot stand it. This bra is also not very pretty (although granted, it is a beige, full-cup bra), and makes me feel much more matronly when I put it on (I'm only 17!)
    This bra is very comfortable, and some people will like the shape much more than I. However, it's not for me at all.

    This is a pretty bra with dainty lightweight mesh.

    I accidentally ordered the wrong size. I would be nervous to try this again in a better size because the gore is wide, does not work at all on my close set breasts, they literally pushed the cups to overlap the gore on their own.

    Even though the cups are too small for me, it is great for support. Straps are thick, band is comfortable and material is breathable. Band is perfect fit.

    30GG

    Didn't fit

    I got this pre-owned, but it's in good condition, which speaks well of its durability. It's a middle of the road bra for me. Not the best fit, but not the worst! The cups are too wide and gap a little on the top outside because I'm so center-full, and the gore is too wide, but there's enough depth at all points (apex/wire/top) which is my main concern. The construction is two layers of mesh which are semitransparent. It's cute looking, but only moderately comfortable (a finer, softer mesh would be ideal, but this is workable).

    Didn't fit

    This bra band fits comfortably snug, and the cup size is a little large. The wires are too wide for my frame and almost rest on my shoulder blades in the back. The gore is also too wide for me (which is too common, unfortunately) and constantly crosses. I bet this would be supportive and comfortable in the correct size.

    28H

    Didn't fit

    When I was thinner these were my #1 bras. They're far too tight for me now, and they were always a bit too wide in the wire for me, but otherwise the cups fit well and were very supportive.

    There is a piece of flexible boning in the band (4.25" high) and there is about half an inch between it and the wire at the top of the band. It marks the end of the lace construction and the more elastic back of the band.

    I loved these bras once, hence why I have 2 completely unworn ones (I went crazy during a HerRoom sale and bought half a dozen at once).

    If they fit they will support you really well, without being bulky. I always thought they were very pretty, and the seams on the lace were fairly unobtrusive under clothing.

    28H

    Didn't fit

    The wires on this size (28H) were too wide for me (as in too wide to be wearable/comfortable), and not sure if it's the too-wide wires, a side effect of having a v-shaped and rounded torso, or if 28H is more shallow than 28GG (or I got a dud in one of the two sizes, which is throwing off my reviews). Despite that this should be the better size...there's not enough immediate projection in bottom of the cup, especially for my smaller (but more projected) side. Where it's cutting in is actually painful. If I knew bending the wires to make them follow my torso ... would fix the issues at the bottom of the cups, I might have kept it.

    The puckering is just from a shape incompatibility, I think, and seems to be a pretty common issue. There isn't as much extra space there as it looks, and the 28GG (which was clearly at least a little too small in the cup!) also puckered in the same spot. I think the cups are just too tall for my short (vertically) breasts. Gem may also be cut or fit a tad big in the cups, as I know I've seen mentioned. Not a lot, but if you're in-between, you might consider sizing down--do look at measurements, though. The band also lives up to reviews as running a band-size big, and why I tried 28 bands.

    So far, Cleo Kali in 30GG has been my 'best' fit, although it's meant more for FOB shapes and I'm more even (which is one reason I tried this bra--Gem is supposedly geared more toward even/FOT). Shape-wise, if it helps others, my breasts are wide set, splayed with outer fullness, and again seem to be more 'even' as far as a bra is concerned.

    Poor fit, band feels loose and stretches out 3 inches on loosest setting, 36 band stretches easily to 40inches.
