This bra initially seemed like it fit, but unfortunately the band is just too big for me and the cups are too small. It seemed workable at first, but it looks like Natori doesn’t make this bra in a shape and size that would fit me anymore.

This bra is theoretically identical to one I have in another colorway (passionfruit) but runs noticeably smaller in the cups. As a result, this one causes slight quadding where the other fit perfectly.

If I raise this high enough to be in my imf, the upper fabric is literally in my armpit. Not recommended for short-statured people.

This is an unlined lace/mesh plunge bra.
About me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
* average projection
* wide-set (3 fingers width of space between breasts)
* very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
* short roots
* even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
* mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
* conical shape (but will squish to round)
* full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
* petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
* Strap separation: good
* Straps adjust short enough: yes
* ... Band length: slightly tight
* Band Height: borderline short (tiny axillary skin spillage)
* Cup fit: BAD. Wide-set, triangular cups that barely covered the nipple. This shape would be good for wide-set breasts with nipples point out to the sides, but NOT my wide-set breasts that point forward. Nipples popped out during scoop & sweep. I could tuck them back in, but am afraid they would escape with activity. Cup smooth along top line (really the middle edge of the cup since the "top" line is nearly vertical). Bottom filled nicely. Gave nice shape to breasts.
* Gore fit: Really good.
* Wire length: GOOD (This is a toughy for me. I need long wires for wide-set breast tissue but am petite so many long wires poke into the armpit.)
* Cup width: Good. Wider than most. (Most cups aren't wide enough.)
* The lace on the band was scratchy, not soft, even kinda itchy. I have sensitive skin, but rarely have an issue with bra bands. I am careful with detergents & cosmetics but don't worry about fabrics so this was a surprise. (It's probably been 20 years since the last time I tried on an itchy bra.)

This is one of my tried-and-true go-to bras! I've purchased it multiple times throughout the years in various sizes and colors because it works so well for me. The low gore, wide underwires, soft fabrics, and fully adjustable straps are all positives. Even through the cup's padding is quite thin, I've found that it provides good nipple coverage. The shape is somewhat shallow and wide, which may be issues for people with a narrower or more projected shape.
The 32DD doesn't fit as well now as it did when I bought it, but that's due to weight fluctuation, and isn't an issue with the bra itself. At present, the top of the cups gap more than I'd like, but the lace/mesh overlay does help to disguise that.

I can't help but come back to this bra again. I think it's a bit shallow for me, but not bad overall.
It's comfier than anything else I own, light weight, creates a nice shape, and the lower coverage makes it one of my more sexy bras. So easy to wear.
This red one has a larger band, but I've been dying for a red bra so I'm going to wear it on the middle and then tightest hooks for awhile.

A very comfortable bra! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
This is the first Natori bra I got and I had to guess the size. I sister sized from my usual 28F. Unfortunately the cups are tad too small for me, I have quadboob. It is not that noticeable though, because of the outer stretchy mesh fabric. I think 32DDD cups would be spot on. The band is obviously too big for me, rides up, but I think the band runs small in general. I think it fits more like 30, not 32 (compared to UK bras, Panache, Freya, Mimi Holliday, etc).
What I like is that the cups ... are wide enough and shallow enough. I have shallow boobs, tall + wide roots. Plus it feels very comfortable when wearing.
ETA. I just wanted add that this bra has become one of my favourites! The quadboobing disappears when I wear the bra but due to strong wires, boobs stay in place. I guess the stretch lace is so forviging? So if I was to purchase another one, I could probably stay in the same size and not go up a cup.

Love this bra! My absolute favorite for fit.

I just received this in the purple color, a band up and cup down.
In the 30DDD I have an issue with the cups puckering, as the band has little give (barely any stretchy material, mostly non stretchy lace) measures about 27".
This band seems a lot better, and my issue with the puckering is gone.
This model fits my shape nicely, I like the sling-like cups. It is somewhat wide and shallow, but I don't have much of an issue with this model as I do with other wide/shallow bras, for whatever reason.
I don't have the issue in the 32 band like I do with the 30 where I scoop ... and swoop and quad but still pucker on top and bottom, which is nice.
In my experience with this bra, you should probably go up a band and down a cup.
As I mentioned, the cups are a little shallow and wires semi wide, but I have very narrow boobs, so I think this is intended for average roots and a bit of shallowness.
I'm very projected in the center and shallow on top, with soft tissue, so my tissue is mostly pushed down in this and distributed throughout the top and bottom of the bra. I'm assuming that's why it works for me.
If you have firmer tissue and need projection, consider going up a cup (or if you go up a band, stick with your usual cup instead of going down.
I don't have any problems with the cup separation either, which is unusual for me in plunge styles. This one doesn't taper off as much to the sides as I've experienced with many other plunges.
If you need straight, up front cups with little separation, but want a plunge, this should work.
Even if your boobs appear somewhat separate like mine, watch for tissue being distributed there after being lifted if you're not too perky-I need under 1" separation, preferably wires touching.
This bra's somewhat sling cups has also been nice for my tall, shallow roots, and doesn't cut in. If you have tall roots that project out more, I'd assume you may have issues with cutting in, especially soft tissue.
I also have lower set boobs and don't have any problems with strap length with this bra. I don't normally, but I guess I just luck out with straps.
The appearance of this bra under shirts is also one of mg favorites.
Very rounded and perky looking, but not semi artificial looking like the Decos.
I personally like the Deco shape, but for those who want padded bras with a more natural look than the Deco, I find this really nice. It gives a somewhat teardrop, perky look on me.
And as mentioned, this band had very little to no stretch. The lace band is very tough, not stretchy, so consider going up a band unless you're losing weight and have extenders or something https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":p" />
Edit: I noticed that the band rides up jusy slightly in this. Ah. Can't win.
Also, the cups pucker AND quad when scooped. I believe it's because the wires are just too wide for me in this and the actual cups have little coverage(NOT the mesh).
It's not noticeable under shirts, but it's not a perfect fit.
I'm only keeping this/ going to wear it and probably purchase a black because this model is my boyfriend's favorite, it's not major, and it's still comfortable.
For fit though, not spot on.

My first well fitting bra. I fit just as well in the 30 DDD, but band was a bit tight. I chose the 32DD but I can wear it on the middle or tightest hooks so I hope it doesn't stretch too quickly. I learned Demi's fit better than full cups. It is so pretty with the sheer part on the tops of the cups.
