I have very shallow, very wide breasts that are slightly tubular/conical in shape.
This is a pretty bra. It's not outrageously complicated or bridal, but it's not boring, either. Some lace adorns the cups, but it's sturdy and non-intrusive. Indeed, the overall construction of this bra seems to be pretty good. No loose threads or itchy spots.
The band is stretchy, much stretchier than one would expect from a strapless. I have a 29" ribcage, and I can pull the bra back about 3-4" from my back on the tightest setting. If you want to get this bra, you might consider going *down* a ... band size.
The cups, however, are too deep for me, and they curve inwards too far on the top. However, it's not nearly as horrendous as most of the other strapless bras I've tried on lately. The cup width is good for me (but probably wider than an average bra). The cups are probably average as far as depth goes; unfortunately, I need something that is shallower than normal.
Because the cups are too deep and that Lepel doesn't carry sub-30 band bras, I will have to call this one a no-go for me. I do think that it would work wonderfully for someone else, though, someone whose root is wide but has more projection than I.
