My shape is low set, short and narrow rooted, and soft.
I found this bra on ebay for a decent price, so I decided to give it a try. I like half cups and this one came in a 28 band, which I've been trying some of lately since my ribcage/breast size shrunk recently. I got the raspberry colour because that was the only option, though I'm not actually a huge fan of pink.
This bra reminds me of 28FF - Cleo » Juna Balconnet Bra (6461) but perhaps not as soft feeling.... It is a three part lined half cup with a lace overlapy and a ... lace trim along the top of the cup. When I measured, I didn't include the lace in the cup height. Although the bra itself fits, and even bubbles with a fresh scoop and swoop, the lace floats a bit when I move around. I'd prefer this bra without the lace trim, so I might even try to cut if off if I get crafty enough. There is a similar lace trim along the straps which is pretty. However, the straps themselves are super thin for my liking. The band is fairly firm, without too much extra stretch. There's a little pleated looking bow on the gore. Three sets of clasps with 2 hooks each. The left cup under the underwire curls up, even when I'm not wearing it. I'm not sure if this is from them storing it or what, but it's a minor irritation aesthetically.
The cups are too wide for me, and so the wires don't sit up nicely in my IMF, but run about a cm under it all the way around to the sides. The shape is a tiny bit flattening but still rounded. The cups don't really bring things to the centre (maybe because they aren't super narrow and the gore is a bit wider). The wings are too low for me too, so when my arms are down, I see some side boob/fat that looks like it's not being completely contained. It's not that this cup is super shallow, because I think it's typical for a 28FF depth, but I think it may not have a ton of depth right at the underwire?
Overall this bra is okay. For the price, I'll probably keep it and wear it, even though it's not a perfect fit.
