*Updated review: It's just soooo dang wide. The more I wore it, the more I realized the whole neckline and design of the plunge just doesn't work out with my inner fullness. Like the inside edge of the cup barely covers my nipple on my bigger breast. But I don't quadboob, and I don't think a bigger size would solve it. I think the wires would definitely be too big in a 30G. The bottom of the cups is too shallow for me. Plus the band is too loose now, and with the straps barely adjusting long enough for me, it ... likes to ride up.*
Oh, I'm in looooove. What a beautiful bra!
Band: I can close it on the tightest hook, but I'm a bit worried about the durability of the satin band, so I'm closing it on the middle hook for now. Hopefully it doesn't snag or run. Feels snug enough for now, and it doesn't stretch too much so hopefully because of the satin it won't stretch out excessively.
Cups: Wide - 6.1" - the gore tacks nicely. I get great lift and they're tall enough to enclose everything on the sides without digging into my armpits. Open on the top, no quadding. Designed for wide rooted, wide set, shallow boobs. The lace detail is gorgeous. They are cotton lined for comfort and lightly padded but not enough to add to my size.
Straps: Not fully adjustable unfortunately. I have them as loose as they can go, which thankfully is just barely long enough for me.
The lace detail covers the vertical seam, but I probably won't wear this as a thin tee shirt bra. I don't wear a lot of thin shirts without a cami underneath them anyways.

I am really suprised how this bra fits me. It is close in cut to 32E - Panache » Zara (5086), but fits me lovely and I don't have any problems with scooping and swooping. I really like the long straps!

This bra works well for my shallow boobs. The shape is really nice, rounded but in a natural way, and overall it is my favorite bra. Cleavage is impressive but not overwhelming.
The satin-covered straps are very comfortable and the band is firm. I felt it was true to size. The lace overlay pulled the edge of the cup outward somewhat (it is only sewn down at 2 points along the edge) but I remedied that with a couple of added stitches to tack it down.
Definitely a fan of the Masquerade line now because of this bra!

I bought this bra after finding out that Masquerade had gone out of business. It's a very pretty mineral blue color, with delicate embroidery and lovely lacey mesh flower petals obscuring the straight edge at the top of the cup (which helps keep it from showing under clothes).
Unfortunately, this one is too loose in the band. I'm not sure if they start out more snug and this one just relaxed with wear, or if I would need a 28 which was never manufactured, but it is just a hair too loose on the third set of hooks, and definitely shifts on the first set. I will probably try ... and take it in since there's no smaller size available anymore.
I think it's a little shallow in the cups, too, because I get a little of the orange-in-a-glass effect with the crumpling at the bottom of the cup. Because it's too loose in the band, the cups also don't support as well as they might otherwise. You can see in the photos how there is space between the cup and the breast from some angles, so they just aren't quite doing their job. I think, if the band were tighter, the F cups would be just right as far as volume is concerned. The gore is wonderfully low and tacks perfectly well.
You can't really tell in the side shots, but the curve of the underwire is just a little too steep for the shape of my root, but this is a super common problem for me, and if I can't feel the pressure, I usually ignore it. In this case the bra is perfectly comfortable, aside from the little shifting of the band.

This bra gives a round shape and an alarming amount of cleavage. The colour is a lovely desaturated light cyan. It's got mesh and lace over the cups while the wings and straps have a sheen. It's very simple and elegant in appearance.
I didn't own it brand new, and it appears to have little life left. The band has stretched out so there are permanent wrinkles along the wings and the gore. Sometimes the cups go wide and I have to adjust the shape.
The cups are too wide for me, and also too high. Plunge styles are higher by default I suppose, but this one kind of rubs against my armpits.
