LOVE the fit of the Lepel bras! Super comfy, nice shape. Just wish they had some slightly more fashionable, not-lacy styles. Also wish they made a 28 band. The 30 fits, but once it stretches out it will only *just* fit.
Compared to the Fiore Balconette, the Fiore Plunge has:
- longer band
- shorter gore
- lower-cut sides
- shorter underwire
- lace detail on the straps comes to the same height
- no lace trim on the bottom band.

I tried this bra at the beginning of my bra journey and I did not like it then. The wires are too wide, the shape is rather pointy and somewhat minimized looking from the side.
Some years later these points are still true but adding the cookies to the bra plus an additional set of EM cookies makes this bra my best Pushup option for cleavage. It is still somewhat minimized but choosing the smaller size plus putting lots of pushup cookie in it makes the shape rounded and my breasts are shaped up-center better than any Ewa could do. Additionally the bra is super comfy for long days of wear.

This is my most favourite bra. The band fits perfect on the first hook and it doesn't move a bit over day. It is so comfy that I sometimes forget about it. The cup is padded but smooth so that little fitting issues are invisible. I used to wear that bra in 30C but the wire startet to poke my breast though the cup seemed proper. A consultant gave me the advise to try on 30D and the cup seemes to be the same ecxept of the wire width. Now I don't have any issues with this bra and wear it the most time.
The bra is very good for women who need wide wires and shallow cups.

This bra was too shallow for me, and the band was too stretchy. I made a reversible band alteration and found it to only make it seem too small and much too shallow for me.

This is my first well-fitting bra after I found out that my old 32Bs are way wrong for me. I had read that it was good for shallow breasts, and I agree with that. Mine fill the cup out well. I also have wide roots, and the underwire is a great width for me. I wear it on the middle hook because the band rides up a bit on the loosest one. I probably could have used a 28, but it's definitely wearable. However, the straps are too wide for me and get uncomfortable. I'm sure I'll have that problem with a lot of bras though.
It's a ... pretty bra. I have the mint green version. I would have preferred another color, but I found this one cheap on ebay so it doesn't matter to me that much. The lace and seems are sort of visible under tight clothing, but not enough for me to not wear it that way. Overall, it's a good fit for me, especially compared to my old ones!
I have realized that this bra is definitely too small for me. Probably just too shallow. Swooping and scooping pulls my boobs right out of the middle of the bra, and I have to tuck them back in. I'll keep wearing it because the lace along the top hides quadboobing pretty well.

This is a very comfortable bra for me. The straps stay up. The construction is sturdy. It's a very nice-looking bra: is both a pretty bra and is flattering for my breasts.
The bra comes with small inserts/cookies that you can remove if you wish, but I just wear them all the time. There's enough room in there that you can insert more/larger cookies for some va-va-voom.

My best fit ever.

I'm waffling whether to mark this as fits or not on Bratabase. I've decided to keep it, so I'll leave it on "fits" for now.
This band. Is a perfect fit. So great. When I measured it, it was decently true to size (stretched it to 31") but the band itself is quite firm, enough for me to wear it on the loosest hook without the band riding up in the way too-large bands do. It's so great! It disappears on my chest and is stretchy enough to not compress me at all when I take a deep breathe. It's clearly capable to stretching larger than my 27.5" ribcage, ... but the stretch is firm enough that I don't need to use tighter hooks (or worse, alter it). *dances*
The cups, though... I don't quiiiiite fill it out at the seam where my nipple is. But the seam, the apex of the cup, matches mine, so it's a great match there. But it's just a tiny too deep there, and only there, which baffles me because the depth of this cup is 7", same as my Betsey Johnson Eyelet Lace, which fits me perfectly. The removable padding makes it a tiny bit worse because my breasts will push the bra away from me. It seems to be mostly due to the odd shape at the seam (a bit too pointy and slightly indented right above it) which will hopefully go away with wear and wash (which I've heard happens).
I have the black/red colorway, which is soooo pretty. The lace at the edges don't bother me at all. They're quite comfortable. The wires are wide, maybe a smidgen too wide for me, but overally really great. The straps are fully adjustable and quite comfortable, except that the buckle sits right on my shoulder blade. It's slightly awkward, but not uncomfortable.
If it weren't for the pointy seam issue, this would be my new favorite bra.

Overall, I love this bra. I fill the cups perfectly with the padding, and there's removable padding that'll be very useful with my hormonal boob-size fluctuations. The band fits nicely on the first hook right out of the box (I imagine I'll need to tighten it sooner because of this, but at least I won't suffer the first 5 wears).
Although the center gore isn't perfectly flat, it's very very close, and it doesn't move when I do (I seem to be between cup sizes currently). The straps are a nice width and can adjust about ¾ the total length, stopping where the lace starts. Additionally, they're set ... close enough together in the back that they don't slip down even on my small frame. The only issue is that the top of the outer cup is too wideset, so it cuts in a little on my armpit area. Perhaps the cups themselves are actually too wide. I like it enough either way.
Finally, the lace design is lovely, and I like that there's a smooth inside so I don't have the design pressing into my skin. The triangle lace portion is a little weird, but it doesn't bother me and I imagine it'd be easy to remove if one so desired.
