    Fits

    This is still my best fitting bra even after about 5-6kg of weight gain (hoping to lose some of it this year)! I would class myself as having an even shape (halfway between FOB and FOT) but my boobs tend to behave more like FOT due to an extremely tall root - I have breast tissue up to the outer edge of my collarbone. This bra does a great job at accommodating this. Just about everything else I own at the moment cuts in or flattens me on top, but the Rhea doesn't. Even when I pull my shoulders back as far as I can ... go, the cup doesn't cut in at all on my larger side because it's just that open on top. I have some pretty noticeable asymmetry as well (between half and one cup size difference - the bigger boob is just a hair too big for 32HH/30J, the smaller can fit pretty neatly in 32H/30HH with only slight overspill). This is easy to accommodate in the Rhea - my shoulders are sized such that I can just wear the straps shorter on the smaller side and this takes care of any gapping.

    The appearance of the Rhea is lovely, I hope it gets introduced again in the new Panache Black line! Aside from giving great 'tavern wench' cleavage, it's very comfy - the cups are lined with a cotton t-shirt type material. The antique colourway could also work as a skin tone for someone a bit darker than me. There are only two things I'd change about this bra - the centre gore and the band. I have extremely close-set breasts - it's very rare for a gore to tack firmly on me - and the gore on this Rhea is probably the narrowest of any bra I've tried, but it still doesn't rest flush against my sternum. It's very close, though! I think it would fit perfectly if the gore was just a centimetre or too lower - it finishes right at the spot where there is no space between my boobs at all. The band stays in place with wear, but feels too thin - I'd definitely appreciate the support of a 3-hook band. It doesn't have much in the way of give either, but that's just as well for me as I've been preferring 30-ish bands lately and Masquerade never made this in a 30HH.

    For anyone thinking of snapping up one of these while they're still floating around, my advice would be to go for your larger size if you're between two band sizes, or if you prefer a looser band. The cup felt true to size to me, and I think you could also get away with a smaller one if you're FOT and between sizes.

    Didn't fit

    I really want this bra to fit but it just doesn't work with my breast shape - my boobs start at my collarbone, I think they are average on the top, firm and bottom heavy with lots of projection. The cups are too open at the top and I don't fill the bottom of the cup even though I have a lot of projection. Sizing up doesn't work.

    I find similar styles in other brands don't work for me either e.g. Curvy Kate Thrill me & Tease Me. I tried going up by 2 cup sizes. Unfortunately these styles don't work with my breast shape :-(
