Well, this is an adorable little offering from Figleaves without a lot of information on here so I'll do my best.
I got this off r/braswap. Visually it's very cute, in an understated way. It's a soft gray-with-a-hint-of-purple color, with a zebra pattern on the outside of the cups, bright pink lining on the inside, and a pink bow at the gore. It also has a soft lace trim at the top of the cups. The zebra stripes are metallic and the pink lining shows through just a little bit to give a sweet dual-color appearance without screaming "I'm lined in PINK!!" The entire ... bra is very soft to the touch, even the straps.
On to the fit part:
UPDATE: So by the end of day 1, I've decided this thing is just too big. Maybe there's a way to pinch in & stitch some of the fabric and make it a bit more supportive. With 4.9" wires, I probably don't need 10.1" of depth. It's sorely lacking in lift and support, it's basically a bralette with underwires. Comfortable, but not exactly functional or flattering. The tall wires do not, however, poke me anywhere.
The band: This is a 30 band that stretches to 28.75" - I have it hooked on the middle hooks. I'm a true 28-band at 27.75" UB. True 30's should be okay, small 28's will find it too loose. If you're between 30-32 bands, get a 32.
The cups: This is the narrowest, most projected unlined cup I've found yet - so all you narrow/projected ladies better listen up! My wires measured 4.9" - this is the first sub-5.0 bra I've ever tried and answers my "how narrow can I really go" question. The wires perfectly follow my root, however they are longer and the wings are taller than Comexim or Cleo Lily, so it remains to be seen whether they poke the tiny extension of tissue I have towards my armpit. Right now, they are super comfortable. They are very U shaped and aren't overly flexible. The bottom of the U may be a tad too deep for the bottom of my root, and as a result I think I loose a little bit of potential lift and support. The apex of the bra seems quite high, and the deepest depth I got was 10.1". The cups give a very natural, almost pointy look that I'm undecided on. I think this is a bra (at least for me) for lounging around the house or throwing a big tee shirt over on lazy days when I need to wash my Cleo Lily lol. This isn't the bra to go for if you're wanting to wow everyone with your perfectly rounded apple-boobs. The cups are closed off on top but they're also stretchy. They work well with my even-to-FOB boobs, but more FOT shapes will likely have trouble.
It fits my bigger breast perfectly, and wrinkles somewhat on my smaller one. I guess I'll know by the end of the day if it stays comfortable, and it remains to be seen whether it's the kind of bra I'll repeatedly find myself picking out of my closet.
Will get pics up in a bit.
