This is a very shallow bra, with rather wide underwires. The underwires don't exactly have the shape I need (they form a too deep U, I think), so it's somehow uncomfortable and I can't wear it for very long amounts of time. The bra's made out of transparent mesh and there's a non-transparent side support panel made out something that feels like padded bras. The straps and the band have some lace at the borders which is a little hard and not too comfortable.
The cups were somehow wrinkly, so I altered it a little (sewed parts of the mesh to the side support panel). Now it doesn't wrinkle anymore and it looks really well.
Beautiful bra! The cups are too shallow at the apex for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I imagine one the right person this gives cake on a plate or a rounded shape. I took a risk because it's a cup size smaller than I usually wear but with an open cup and being on the very bottom edge of the depth I normally require and so pretty I wanted to try it. Sad it didn't work out. band felt firm but not a size smaller though I would only recommend it to someone on the small end of 30 or add an extender.
The oversized bow somehow seems right in person and the whole bra looks delicate and petite which is harder to pull off in my size for most companies.
I have a wide root and shallow boobs. I do need flat cups but not extraordinary wide wires. I almost don't have any volume on top. I usually wear this bra when my boobs are smaller during the first weeks after my mestruation.
The band runs really tight I can only fasten it at the last hook. The cups are shallow and very open on top. The wires are wide and perfectly fit me even though I sized down due to my breast size changes. First the material is a little scratchy but it gets softer after washing it.
The Esprit is a beautiful unpadded halfcup bra with side support sling. The cups are true to size and very open on top, and have wide wires (great for wide root shallow boobs!) The band runs tight. I usually wear a 30 band (29" loose underbust), but I went for a 32 band in the Esprit and it fits well.
There are two downsides: 1) The side support sling. It's made of foam padding and cut into my breast tissue. This gave me weird bulges and an odd shape. 2) The fact that the closure only has 3x1 hook (not 3x2 as most bras), so there is a lot of strain on the closure and the band is not very stable especially in the larger cup sizes.

The wires were too narrow and cut into breast tissue.
This bra is almost a fit disaster. But I love it anyway. I am still okay with cramming my boobs back in and creating a boobular look, and this bra is just sexy. I love the sheer lace, and the lift this creates. This bra is so rare online that I really have no choice but to keep this size or not have this bra. Maybe someone out there has a 32E though? I think this bra is very tight as well. I have to stretch it a lot to fasten it.
As I already had it in 30DD, I knew it will be perfect again, now that my size is smaller, and I was right! perfect fit again, very open at the cup, allows my boobs to change their size over the month and still fit! Also, it is very beautiful, petite white bras are hard to find!
This bra has very, very wide wires, which is good for me. It's not very comfortable though. The fabric is a little scratchy. This bra was too big for me, and it didn't fit in 30E either. The center gore was too prominent for me. I didn't try bending it, but it poked into my sternum quite painfully. I think for me the wires were too straight (and not body-shaped), because after half an hour of wearing, it hurt too much to continue wearing it.
So, I generally think this bra is very pretty. I don't think it's the right shape for me though. I find when I put it on, there is some space at the bottom of the cups and my breasts are bulging over the top of the cups. No matter how I try to position it, I cannot get my breasts properly into the cups. I think it's true to size, but it's a bad cut for me.
