This bra is a 30 band but like many Gossard 30 bands, would fit someone who needs a 28 band better. My snug underbust measurement is exactly 28" and I need a bit of wearing ease for my bras. Therefore, if you normally need a 28 band this is great for you. It is a classically shallow and broad wired bra.
I liked this "push up" bra in a 30DD, which is my usual Gossard size, however I could have used a little more room in the cups because of the bottom padding, so I ordered a 30E. This one does NOT have push-up padding! I was disappointed because that means the bra just acts like a t-shirt bra for me, and I don't totally fill out the bottom of the cups. Another difference is it has two hooks in three columns, but that's more of an improvement than a detriment. I do like the bra even though it is not a push-up bra like I had expected. So ...please be aware that the push-up padding is not available in cups after DD, it seems.
Like most Gossards, the 30 band is somewhat tighter than one would expect. My measurements are 27" & 33/34" and I like a tight fit. So if you're a true 30, it is not uncomfortably tight, I'd imagine, but you might like to size up a band.
This is a nice unlined and padded bra with removable straps (though you would not want to go strapless in this bra because it is not meant to be that way). I love that the straps are very thin, but take note that there is 6 or so inches of unadjustable strap. I usually have my bra straps pretty tight, but these still have room to be tightened so that is good for anyone who worries about that.
Gore is very low, just a little strap with basically no space between the cups. I like the color of the bra--a dark grey. It is a nice change from black.

I measure 27-33/34 and this bra fits wonderfully. The band runs very tight. I find 30DD cups just a tad small for me in Gossard bras but the 30Es I have tried were way too big, so I just stick to 30DD.
This bra is just what I've been looking for. It is UNLINED! It has very thin straps that can be criss-crossed and are hardly noticeable when wearing camisoles. The cups have push-up padding at the bottom and it does make this bra a bit more quad-booby than my other Gossards but it's a push-up plunge and that is not a problem at all if I am wearing a low-cut top.
This bra is very comfortable and sexy. I definitely recommend it (and other Gossards) for 28 and lower bands looking for plunge bras. I think if you are a real 30-band it may be uncomfortably tight but I can't know for sure.
