Despite getting a small but distinct amount of quadboob with this bra, I'm going to keep it. One, because I don't think it's enough to warrant a full cup size change (like the CK Lottie, which gave mild quadboob, but had me swimming in the cups when I went up a size), and two, because the lace on this bra does an excellent job of disguising said quadboob. I will, nevertheless, order a 30G just in case. As for the band, although it would definitely be better in a 28 band (which Lepel doesn't currently make) and it does ride up somewhat in the back, it feels tighter ... than some of my more stretchy 28 band bras (CK showgirl bras, I'm looking at you) and the band moves less than those bras do when I raise my arms or jump up and down.
Personally, I find that this is, as recommended, a great bra for shallow, full-on-bottom breasts. The shape of the bra seems like it was designed with me in mind. I usually prefer a more rounded shape, but I like the shape here, too. It's rounded but isn't quite as circular as some bras, more rounded at the bottom and a bit more diagonally flattened on the upper portion, if that makes any sense. Not pointy, by any means, if you're concerned about that.
I have a long torso and still noticed that this bra comes up really high under the arms. It's not enough to bother me (it actually makes me feel quite "secure" in the bra), but I could see it being uncomfortable if you were more sensitive to that sort of thing, or had a shorter torso or high-set breasts. If I could change one thing on this bra (other than expanding down to sub-30 bands), it would be replacing the double hooks with triple hooks. I don't think that double hooks are adequate at this size, though obviously some bra makers disagree.
