This is the most beautiful bra I own. The lace and satin are very high quality. The lace is a bit thick but doesn't show under most clothing. I love the shape the cups give my breast, pressed in and up for AMAZING cleavage! The band runs tight but has enough stretch to be comfortable. This is my go to for a fancy, sexy night out!

This bra is wide and shallow.

My third Rhea, this time in the Bravissimo-exclusive duck egg blue... which is maybe my favorite! The fit is pretty much identical to my Antique and Pink/Champagne colorways also in 30FF. Like my other Rheas, this is not an excellent technical fit, but is extraordinarily beautiful aesthetically, comfortable, and my favorite option for subtle cakes-on-a-plate cleavage beneath a low and broad neckline

I already own and love the Antique colorway in the same size, so I was incredibly happy to come across this long-discontinued one, which has an ivory satin background with dusty lilac-pink lace trim... it's girlie but still very regal looking. It's the sort of bra I would've dreamed about having as a little girl Honestly, I'd love to have all the colorways of Rhea as I think they're all so gorgeous, if only Masquerade was still in business! I just love the luxurious-looking details and find that the fit of this one is pretty identical to that of my original one, except that the band in this colorway is not quite as firm. The shape is lovely... rounded but quite minimized, awesome under a wide and square neckline. The only drawback of this bra is that the lace shows through any sort of thin knit, so that unfortunately limits the clothing it can be worn with.

Admittedly, aside from being open on top, this bra is not ideal for my shape. It is very shallow, which causes the gore ever so slightly and the bra to slide downwards a little throughout the day. The straps are quite wide-set, which may be problematic for those with narrow shoulders.
Nevertheless, I absolutely LOVE this bra, even after discovering Ewa Michalak's CHP cut, which is far more suitable for my shape and projection. Rhea was one of the first bras I got after learning my correct size, and is truly the epitome of what I look for in lingerie! It is incomparably beautiful and sumptuous-looking... dusky lilac-taupe satin, ... vertical seams ending in thick lace, and a delicate ribbon bow and rhinestone pendant at the center gore. The materials are definitely evocative of something from the Italian Renaissance, if not some other historical aesthetic! The cup construction is extremely uplifting and keeps your bust close to your chest to create a beautiful cakes on a plate cleavage. I find that it's a wonderful piece practical for both bedroom and everyday wear. Every time I wear it, it makes me so happy to know I have something so lovely beneath my clothes!

I adore this bra, and this was definitely not the right size when I bought it, but I fell in love with the ivory/pink colourway after it was discontinued and snapped this up when it was listed on here and just stared at it in my drawer.
Through some fortuitous size fluctuations, this fits pretty well now, though I really wish that there was a bit more immediate projection at the base of the cup. The shape I get from this is very round pushed-up cleavage on top, but a little boxy from the side. This only looks good under a certain type of neckline, which is a shame since this bra is so pretty.

The antique colourway is a truly beautiful colour: I expected a sort of shiny beige, which it is, but it also has a lilac underhue. Much more beautiful than the photos suggest.
Unfortunately, this bra just is not made for my shape.
There is nowhere near enough immediate projection for me. The bottom half of the cups are incredibly shallow, I presume by intention because the bra is designed, after all, to push everything up. (And boy does it deliver.) I'm getting some crumpling in the base of the cup -- oddly, it's on my smaller side. Perhaps because on my larger side there's simply so much tissue crammed ... into the cup it supports the cup shape even though I'm not quite filling out the bottom.
I'm getting quite a blocky profile in this one, which is indication the cup size is too small for me; however the cup is so open on the top that what would be quadboob on any other bra is just cakes on a platter cleavage. The top edge of the cup is quite stiff and stands upright on me; I'm wondering if it's actually a result of the blocky profile and would lay flatter in the 30G. But I think the gaping along the top is also due in part to strap placement: they attach too far to the side of the cups for my frame.
Very snug band on this bra: I'm normally quite happy in a 30 band in Masquerade but am using an extender for an extra column of hooks to start with.
Very high gore, which doesn't sit well with my inner fullness and close-set breasts.
I had tried to talk myself out of the Delphi, but this bra has just convinced me all over again that I do want to try it.

This bra fits okay. As a petite person, the straps are a tiny bit too wide. The straps adjust enough for me though. It also gives me slight quadriboob and a squarish shape - not really noticeable under clothes though.

This bra is 2 cup sizes too small for me, so it's hard to give an accurate review on fit. The straps are partially adjustable, fairly narrow, have smooth edges and don't stretch a lot, which is nice. The band is similar, but a narrow band that doesn't stretch a lot isn't that nice. It's a gorgeous, elegant bra, and feels very high quality.

I picked this up from eBay because I had heard it was amazing for shallow/full on top breasts. I got it in 30FF in hopes that it would have a gore that is closer together, which would be more comfortable.
Good quality; nice materials
Surprisingly close to a neutral underneath clothing - I wore it under a creme and grey top and it didn't show
Good for shallow/full on top breasts
Wonderful globe like breast shape
Half adjustable straps - they fall off easily.
The lace is a little stiff -it kind of gapes
Gore is too wide and pokes into my breast tissue
Wires are not quite wide enough on the sides for me- they cut in a little bit
