I am a fairly even and projected breast shape. I have average-to-narrow roots with a slight omega shape. My best fitting bra is a Cleo Lily in 28GG, though I think a 30G would be more comfortable in terms of band length.
I think this bra would be good for someone with wide and somewhat shallow breasts - even they, for whom the shape would be a match, may want to look into sizing up a cup size or so, however.
Normally, I wear a 30G or 30FF, so the cups on this bra DEFINITELY run pretty small. It's two-three cup sizes up from what I normally wear, as ... well as a band size up. I fill the cups out fairly nicely, though the top fabric on the cup, above the seam, seems really loose.* The seam lies flat, but the soft fabric does not.
*(I just tried it on again, and I seem to fill out that fabric very nicely when I'm nearing my period and my breasts are a bit larger.)
The wires here are pretty wide. My ideal wire width is found in the Lily, which encompasses me perfectly. These wires extend under my arm pits and I have a bit of loose fabric due to it.
The wings are also a bit high for me, however, I think this is mostly because of how far back the wires go. If the ACTUAL wings rather than the wires were hitting my sides properly, I don't think I'd have an issue.
As far as aesthetics and build materials, this is a very pretty and high quality bra. The fabric used in the cups is luxuriously soft, and the lace decoration is also gorgeous. It has a "classic" quality to it that's rather timeless without feeling like it's an old lady's idea of attractive.
