I was super excited to get this bra after I got the 30FF - Panache Black » Odette Sweetheart Moulded Bra (7851) . The Odette fit me almost perfect, so the fact that this was a liiiittle bit off disappointed me a bit. It's a bit taller so there's a little gape on top for me when I move, but it's not much of a problem. It's extremely smooth so it's invisible under clothing. The scalloped lace on the band and straps is very nice and makes it look much more interesting than a plain molded bra. The band is definitely very stretchy, I'm usually a ... 32 and this 30 fits right. I would recommend sister sizing down. Upon first wear, it was quite comfortable, but under the band in the front my skin was starting to get quite red, so I imagine there's a little less immediate projection than the Odette and this would start to get uncomfortable in that area if I wore it longer. The color is quite light beige. Overall, if you're in need of a projected molded bra, I would recommend the Odette over this one for the shape, but if you need plain beige I would say this is the best in that color that's out there.

I'm around a 32FF in Cleo.
I sized down as the 32 band was too stretchy. I would recommend sizing down in the band if you're between sizes.
Sadly I'm between sizes in this bra. The 30FF is a tiny bit too small in the cups, and the 30G is too big in the cups. I can make the 30FF work if I just don't scoop and swoop super vigorously on my larger breast.
But that isn't the main issue...
This bra seriously breaks my heart. It would be the perfect seamless bra for me (the only one I've found that's projected and narrow ... enough), except for the straps.
I don't think they're too short. I do have them as long as they'll go, but they're not really cutting in. It's just the placement of the adjustment hardware is in the worst spot for me. These straps are only half adjustable (UGH), so the adjusters rest on spots that are painful. I don't know if they're resting on bone or what, but they really hurt.
I really hate to return this bra. It's so nearly perfect, but it's just too painful to wear.
I'll probably try and track down the old Masquerade version to see if it fits any different.
