    28DD

    Didn't fit

    When I first started my bra journey I tried this bra in 28D even though I measured at 28DD. I tried it because it's so beautiful I couldn't pass it up and because I was going through a bit of sticker shock with the size I should be wearing vs. what I was wearing.

    Fast forward to now and I have gained boobage and need 28E in most bras.... so of course I find on in 28DD.
    Still can't pass it up because I knew how pretty it was in person and when I tried it on before the fit issues seemed to be related to the cup ... size and not a shape problem.
    I tried it on last night... same outcome as before. It's a gorgeous bra and I love it, but it is just too small in the cups for me. I quad like nobody's business!
    I still really love this bra and would take it in a 28E/F if I can find someone selling it. My shape is even and projected, so someone in that shape, who measures at around a 28DD would really like this bra!

    28FF

    Didn't fit

    This bra was the first non matrix sized bra I ever tried... in 28DD. It was too small for me then and this one is too big for me now. I love love love how it looks and have been searching for a 28F since I found out it was being discontinued. I decided to try one size up because I want this bra to work for me soo bad! Turns out 28F *should* be the right size for me and I could probably go for a 30E as well. Bummer.
    Unfortunately, I think this bra will be unattainable since the straps were a tiny bit too wide, the cups a tiny bit too tall (and overall about half a cup size too big), and the gore kind of poked me.
    Other than those things though: Ermergd I love this bra! It's soo beautiful and elegant and well made and I wish it worked for me.

    • Oh, that's too bad, since it's a beauty! <3

    • I got one in a 30E awhile back in a grab bag from breakoutbras.com

    • Ah, yeah... Oh well, I'll love it from afar. Super lucky amandafire ! I'm always nervous about those things!

    28E

    Didn't fit

    The Medina is beautiful and luxurious-looking (pictures don’t do it justice), and it is made of a lovely silky fabric that feels very pleasant against the skin. I really wanted it to work, but sadly it was a bit too shallow for me in 28E. Since it is so open on top, I didn’t get quadboob, I was just spilling out of either the top or the sides, depending on whether or not I swooped and scooped. That doesn’t mean it is a shallow bra – I’d say it has about average projection. It probably would have worked in a size up, but unfortunately the 28Fs were sold ... out by the time I returned this one. Too bad, because other than the projection issue, the cups seemed like a good shape for me; I liked that the apex is higher than on some of the Masquerade halfcups I’ve tried.

    The band is initially on the firm side for a 28 band, but judging from my experience with other Masquerade bras, it would probably stretch over time. The wires are exactly the same width as other non-plunge Masquerade bras in 28E (fairly narrow). I think it might work for those who find a good fit in the Curvy Kate Ritzy, at least in the smaller cup volumes, as I experienced similar fit issues in these two bras.

    This bra doesn't work well for FOB. It's very open on top and shallow in the bottom. However the bra material is super comfy! I would recommend it for someone with a different shape

    28D

    Fits

    This bra is one of my new favorites for fit, particularly on the smaller end of my cycle (I needed a bra or two to take care of those days, so I'm thrilled to have found something). I'm a fan of quite firm bands, which this definitely is. I'm relatively average projected and slightly full on bottom, and gives great shape and lift. Unfortunately, the colors of the fabric aren't the best for my skin tone (being very, very pale is a major drawback at times), but that's not a major issue for me at all.

    This bra runs small. It has wide straps that didn't extend long enough for it to fit me. The band isn't very stretchy and it needs slightly more projection than I have to offer. It might be good for someone 'slightly shallow' or even projection. The bra is soft and comfortable though!

    The band is pretty firm. The cups look to be good for shallow busts. They are open on top and there are no horizontal seams.
    I'm having a similar problem as Karen or Maddie with this one, so I think it may work well for those who can wear Maddie.

    30E

    Fits

    This bra fits me well, but the top edge of the cup is thick and doesn't lay totally flat. The edge design is very visible under T-shirts, so unfortunately I can't keep this.

    This bra was the first bra I ever bought post /r/abrathatfits. I am in love with the colorway and have tried it in at least 3 sizes now. I may have to admit defeat. The cups are just to tall for me.

    30GG

    Didn't fit

    When I first purchased this bra I was able to close the band but it was extremely tight and there was too much tension on the hook and eyes. After months of wearing it with and extender I can now wear it comfortably without it, for reference my ribcage measurement is 31 inches. I find the band to be firm and while it's comfortable to me, if you prefer a softer "forgettable" band this isn't for you.
    The cups were a perfect fit for my FOT breasts. They are very open yet they have a slight inward curve at the top but this does not cause quadding on my ... upper fullness. Instead the cup design makes me feel secured while still giving me a slight cakes on a plate look. I wouldn't call the bottom shallow since it has more immediate projection than my Rhea. The straps are half-adjustable which is my favorite type. The high gore technically isn't the best for my close set, center full breasts but it's not a problem for me. The gore tacks but my beasts cause the wire to fold out a bit. I love this bra and it's my go to bra when I want the look of the Rhea but need to feel more locked down.
