Lookwise the bra is lovely, though the black lace along the bottom of the band can a bit itchy if it rolls under. Other than that it is quite comfortable - it seems to be a great bra for someone with shallow breasts and a narrow/medium root though, so on me the fit isn't too good (narrow root and lots of projection)
I'm probably going to take the band in a bit on this, because it fits me perfectly otherwise. The straps are a good distance apart an have a comfortable padding (like the other two masquerade models I've tried). The band seems a bit stretchier than the others, however. This is the largest size I've gotten yet, but it seems to be a good volume with two vertical seams, wires that are wide enough, and cups that are open at the top (really good for my shape).
The Georgiana - a classical halfcup shape with two vertical seams. This bra is perfect for wide root shallow boobs. The padding is thin - not like foam padding/lining - and doesn't add to your natural shape. The cups are sturdy and hold their shape even when the cup is empty. I noticed the material was quite stiff when the bra was new and the cup rim would show through clothing. They did soften up soon with wash and wear. The cups are quite shallow and open on top. The wires are wide and touch in the middle.
The wearing comfort of the Georgiana is amazing - it's one of the most comfy bras I own. The shape is also nice - slightly uplifted and rounded.
The band on the apple/raspberry colorway is quite stretchy, even for a 32 band (no problem as I am going to alter it to a 30E anyways).
I noticed that the band is firmer on the burnt orange one - it fits like a true 32 in my opinion. (It's too wide for me anyways, because I usually need 30 bands, but it's much less stretchy than the apple/raspberry colorway.)
/update: altered the band to a 30, so the bra is a 30E now and it fits me so well, I'm happy!
This bra is pretty much amazing for my shape! I traded a tempt me for it, and I wasn't sure if if would even fit, let alone look this great. Now it's one of my favorites.
Pros: -Great for shallow, medium root, close-together breasts -I get great cleavage -The fabric is so soft, very comfy -The design is beautiful in a simple way
Things to consider: -Shows through stretchy tops a bit (the top part with the lace) -Runs a little bit small (if you're in between sizes, go with the bigger one, otherwise it might not be an issue) -The top part can get itchy if the lace rolls underneath -The band might run a little big? I can't confirm this because I got mine used, and theoretically I should use a 28 band, even though I usually don't.
The Georgiana is a classic for breasts with a broad root and little projection. These bras also fit me very well, so I had to jump at the chance to get this (sadly discontinued) style. The bra is beautiful. I have it in the burnt orange colorway and it's just amazingly pretty, as Masquerade bras often are.
It gives me a lot of cleavage, unfortunately, the wires are too narrow for me, which is very noticeable after a bit of wearing. For now I love it too much to give it away though... Other than that, it's very comfortable, the straps are perfect and the band is really good, too.
