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. Read more 196 more words
Very disappointed in this bra. I so wanted this to work. There was not much lift, the cup forced everything flat against my chest and the seams wrinkled up in the strangest way. The quality is good, and it is a very pretty bra, just not for my shape.
The band is quite tight. However, I'm planning to wear it with an extender to extend the life of the bra. There is just the slightest quad boob with the right cup, but that's usual for me since my right breast is half a cup to a cup bigger than the left. It's comfortable, pretty, and shapely. The lace might present a challenge in terms of what to wear with the bra, but otherwise it's a bra that makes you feel sexy.
I believe this bra is defective/mislabeled -- the tag says 32 gg but I'd say more like a tight 30gg. I cannot close the bra without an extender, and it's at least 2 cup sizes small on me. I own a 32gg masquerade Delphi, and have no problems.
The bra is gorgeous, and other than clearly not being the size it claims to be, there are no defects. I may try to reorder another 32GG to see if I actually get one this time https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
