The Persia bra has a stretch satin covered band and center gore. I have it in the colour Damson which is a burgandy, dark maroon colour.
The band is stretchy but somewhat restrictive. I usually wear a size 28 band in Cleo and Freya but in Masquerade's satin bands I find that, although easy to fasten in a 28, they can feel a bit uncomfortable when I breath deeply.
The 28GG was a great fit in the cup (and leans towards large rather than small) but I found that the sister size 30G was a better back size for me.
The Persia style is a balcony bra with quite a square neckline and it sits quite high up in the center gore and has quite a bit of coverage at the top of the bra - in between a full cup bra and a balcony bra. I adore this shape on and it's very flattering I think.
