When this bra first arrived in the mail I tried it on and did not like the fit.
My smaller breast had a huge gap in the fabric, but since my breasts are so unequal lately, this was to be expected. My larger breast also had a gap in the fabric, so I put it away and ordered the 28DD.
The 28E does have a decent band. I am a smaller 28 band so I really appreciate the tighter bands.
The other day I went to try this bra on again, and the larger breast fit magnificently. The top actually looked like it had been painted on, and ... I had amazing support. TMI: It was just before my period so perhaps my breasts do swell / shrink a significant amount during my cycle.
The other breast looked horrible. This bra emphasises the volume difference the most of any of my bras, and I played around with all of my pads to try to compensate, and tried to shorten the strap, but I could not get the fabric to lay flat across my breast on the smaller breast. It was not noticeable through a shirt, but I wanted the same amazing look on both sides. (I hate having to always say, "it's not noticeable through my clothes". For once I want a bra that looks great when I'm naked and great when I'm wearing clothes, and has no problems that I am overlooking. This is a problem with me more so than the bra, but it's sill not perfect for me.)
I really liked half of this bra (the side that fit my larger breast). The band was decently tight, no need to size down for those who have that option.
The straps don't fully adjust, but this wasn't a problem for me. Even the small boob where I shorten the strap considerably I didn't have it all the way (when it was all the way tight it hurt my shoulder too much).
I have a good colour of skin for this bra, it really looked like it was showing my skin through.
I hope I can make an adjustment to the one side and get it to work exactly.

The Masquerade Persia is my favorite bra. I have it in sapphire, and I loved it so much I bought another one in black. I've heard that with some bras the black runs smaller than other colorways, but that is not the case here; the two fit exactly the same. I will say that the band on my first Persia started out quite firm for a 28 band but stretched pretty fast, which is the only downside of the bra. Otherwise I love everything about it. To repeat the relevant portions of my original review: Like most other Masquerade bras of the same size, the Persia has average-to-narrow ... wires. It has a decent amount of projection, and unlike some projected bras, the projection is not just at the apex, but all over. It allows enough room for my center fullness, but isn’t lacking in space on the outside or bottom either. For me, this is the bra that is so perfect for my shape, and therefore so comfortable, that I can forget I’m wearing a bra. And it’s gorgeous too!

The Masquerade Persia is the closest thing I’ve found to my ideal bra. For me, this is the bra that is so perfect for my shape, and therefore so comfortable, that I can forget I’m wearing a bra. And it’s gorgeous too! Like most other Masquerade bras of the same size, the Persia has average-to-narrow wires. It has a decent amount of projection, and unlike some projected bras, the projection is not just at the apex, but all over. It allows enough room for my center fullness, but isn’t lacking in space on the outside or bottom either (I have even and center fullness, but I’m really kind of full-all-over). The band was initially extremely tight for a 28 band, but it has stretched, and that is the only thing that worries me a little, since I actually need a 26 band. But overall it’s amazing, I love it, and I’m thinking of buying another one.

This bra is stunning, high quality and has nice luxurious touches like the little tassle at the front, the satin, sapphire material, pretty lace which also goes up the front of the straps. I go between 28E and 28F and decided to goes for the E. It seems to fit perfectly.
I'm just slightly concerned about a bit of creasing on the bottom, it's not much but should I be concerned or does it look like it fits? It's feels fine, no quad boob and isn't too tight or loose. Don't know what I'm going to wear over the top of it as it's lacy. Although the lace isn't that prominent so I I think it will be too lumpy.
The nude material is a strange touch though. I think it's pointless, I mean why would you be concerned about a bit of boob or nipple showing? I'm considering taking it out. Has anyone tried to do that?
