Summary: tight band, narrow cups, short straps, nice material
I'm usually a 30D/DD with close-set, slightly FoT breasts.
I bought this in 30E because it appeared to be cut identically to the Just Peachy Lace Non-Padded Bra that runs very small. This seems to mostly bear out, as my larger breast fits incredibly well at my smallest time of the month. However, my smaller breast would definitely rather a cup size down both for depth and height of the cup. The band also runs quite tight. At my best I was able to stretch it to 28.5", so I hope the elastic relaxes quickly. I would ... recommend most going one band size up and one cup size up.
Shape-wise, the wires are vertical (U-shaped) and narrow. The cup interior is well rounded and avoids the pointy problem of many un-padded bras. The elastic on the top edge of the upper lace will cut into very FoT breasts but is suited to FoB or even shapes.
The straps are definitely set wider than I would expect for such a tight band, and more surprisingly are very, very short. I am a petite person with a short torso who usually has to shorten straps nearly as much as they can go, but these I had to lengthen to their absolute maximum for a proper fit.
The material is very soft and though the gore comes up quite high and just a little wider than my close-set breasts like, the wires can be pushed down about half an inch in the center and the problem goes away.
I adore the colorway I got (blue/duck egg). It looks sumptuous in person and almost as good in the photo.
All in all, I will be keeping this bra and just altering the cup to fit my smaller breast.

is the lace at the top of the cups stretchy lace with that elastic you mentioned? or just regular lace with that elastic sewn on?
moriko the lace is stretchy.
I saw your pic thumbnails and was immedialtely like, woah boob twin. 28dd close set, even/FOT, shallow, tall roots checking in.
yogurt You should definitely start looking into Comexims, then. They are basically the only thing I am looking to get in the future now, or else just start making my bras myself. Nothing else feels the same and I can't get over how wonderful the overlapped underwires are at dead center for reducing gore width.
Gorgeous color on you, and nice fit!
