MY SHAPE: Projected, center full, close-set, tall and narrow roots.
THE TAKEAWAY: This "semi-soft" bra has slightly stretchy lace with an elastic band along the top rim (warning, FOT shapes) and a pretty high gore which handles my center fullness admirably. Band is quite comfortable. Color and lace are gorgeous. Cups might be too big!
DETAILS: Half of the cup is very lightly padded, just enough for modesty concerns, and the other half is lace. Gorgeous, very deep cups might have you sizing down from your equivalent UK size. (I would be a 32FF/30G (30:8/30:9) in Panache/Cleo, and this 65I (30:9) might be too big for me.)
The color ... is a deep, slightly bluish green, and the pattern on the cups is really interesting to me -- pinstriped, almost, with soft ribbon, combined with floral lace. Straps are sturdy, a bit wide but not uncomfortably so on me, and the two hooks are interesting; they're wider-set than any other hooks I've seen, and this means you get a slightly wider and more supportive band than you'd usually expect with only two hooks.
I would, however, describe the band as pretty stretchy. (It's a typical mesh.) It could go wider than the 30" I've put here if I hard-stretched it, and that's something to keep in mind if you're interested in ordering this particular bra.
