    *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.

      What a beauty!!! Congrats on the fit, it sure looks good!

      This is one of the bras I have on my wishlist! You said it is somewhat shallow and that worries me!

      I've gathered the measurement infos of my best fitting bras atm, and I got a range of:

      cup width: 5.3-5.4 (even though I have a Panache Tango as 28G with 5.8 that actually fits: http://www.bratabase.com/browse/panache/tango-classic-plunge-4806/28G/)

      cup depth: 8.4 - 9.3 (the referred Panache Tango is actually 9.8 and it fits!)

      Judging from that, Alice will probably be too wide for my shape! What a bummer!

      I would say it is somewhat shallow, yes. It is wide for sure though. Mine measures 6.1" which is slightly wider than some of the other 30F measurements entered, but still quite a bit wider than your preferred width excluding your Tango. The depth agrees though. It really is a beauty. I gave in and closed it on the tightest hook, if the band stretches it's one I'm willing to alter down to make the bra last.

    • lcl0706 yeah, it will probably have the same problem as my Cleo Neve!

      Yeah, I think you should keep it and alter it when needed!

    • 1

      Yeah, if the Neve doesn't work for you, this won't. Incidentally, I have a Neve arriving tomorrow hehe

    • lcl0706 good luck on that! :)

      I'm currently looking for a strapless bra...can't find the perfect one!

    • 1

      I'm itching to get my hands on a Neve strapless, but waiting to see how my regular Neve fits first. I also would like a nude color strapless, I need to list my 28F deco strapless and get a 28FF but can't find one anywhere and haven't wanted to get rid of the only strapless I own that is passable. Both of those are wide shallow strapless bras so that probably doesn't help you haha. I'm just waiting for a few more things to sell before I drop $60-$70 on the Neve strapless - and finding that one in a 28 band anywhere is proving quite difficult. I see many 30 band alterations in my future :-S

      lcl0706 Oh, I was hopeful deco strapless would work for me! :( But 5.8 is probably way too much!

      I found this listing on ebay, with one 28FF deco strapless: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121625489117?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

      Wow, that's a good deal! Tempting! The Rhea probably wouldn't work for me but the other 2 should. That's kinda worth it just for the Freya.

      myfashioninsider have you looked at either the Panache Evie strapless or the Fantasie smoothing strapless? I can't remember your band size, but Fantasie's smoothing strapless only goes down to 30. I've owned & sold one - cups runs big, my 30F I sold swallowed me up. But it does its job well, if you can get over how utilitarian it looks. The 30E is 5.4W x 8.9D according to BTB.

      The Evie strapless seems to be narrower than the Porcelain strapless but there's not a full measurement table on BTB.

    • lcl0706 I was eyeing a 30E fantasia smoothing strapless at ebay, but I saw reviews and they were disappointing! Also, didn't like the shiny finishing...

      I'm trying to decide if I should order a Pour Moi strapless in 30F. I've only seen the measurements of the 30G and there aren't much reviews... But it's really cheap, so I'm tempted to give it a go!

      As for Evie, tried it once and, back then, didn't like how it fit!

      myfashioninsider Ill have to look up the Pour Moi. My fantasie wasn't that shiny, not overly shiny. I think it would have definitely served its purpose had it not been too big. My main complaint was the gore. It was so high it was painful, but I don't know if that was because the whole thing was so big on me.

    • lcl0706 Strapless bras are so difficult :/ baaah

    • Because they're all wider in the cups and shallower than regular bras. Good for me. Not good for most people.

    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.

    • It's too loose on the tightest hooks?

    • Yep. I have pictures of it on the loosest and tightest set of hooks, and it is too loose on both.

    • That sucks! I didn't wear it very much - it was too loose on the tightest setting for me pretty much from the start. I don't think those satin bands stretch much. Can you alter it? Otherwise it looks pretty nice on you!

    • I think you and I just must need something smaller than a Masquerade 30, that's all! I am definitely going to alter it, though, especially because with less stretchiness to worry about, there won't be any uneven tension with my imperfect hand stitching later on.

    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.
