This is the first bra I've ever tried that actually fits me perfectly. The band is nice and snug at the loosest hook, the wires encircle my breasts comfortably as they should , the cups are well filled out without wrinkling, spilling or cutting in anywhere, the shape they give me is natural but nice and rounded and not too East-West for a change, in short: everything is perfect!
A handsome full-cup bra made out of black stretch lace partly underlined with a sheer, very smooth, non-stretch mesh. The whole appearance is quite delicate and subtly sheer. The 'side support slings' on the inside of the cups ... are made out the same smooth, sheer mesh material that is folded double so there's no rough, bumpy or overlocked edge touching the breasts.
As said, the fit of this bra is the best I've ever had of any bra. The band closes snugly without feeling constricting at the loosest hook, a very first for me. The centre gore stays lies nice and flat. The underwires are suitably wide (but not overly so) and they feel very comfortable. Apparently, a correctly fitting band DOES make all the difference
The cups give me a good shape, nothing dramatic, but I'm very happy with it. It's definitely the best I've ever had from a non-padded bra: supported and nicely rounded. I particularly like how my breasts are finally facing FORWARD, instead of their usual East-West. The stretch lace at the top of the cups is forgiving and does not cut in. Although I haven't worn it for very long yet, I feel can comfortably wear this bra despite my fluctuating size (breastfeeding).
The only thing to watch out for in this bra is to not tighten the straps too much. Pull them too tight ant the 'side support sling' will cause a slightly odd shape in the cups: a kind of indentation at the edge of the sling. My 'pear-shaped' breasts (relatively wide base topped with a puffy areola) actually HAVE an indentation at that point naturally so maybe this is something that isn't very noticeable in other breast shapes, but I though I'd mention it anyway.
On me it is indeed a very full cup. I like the look and I'm not concerned with the lace showing under low-cut shirts as it's definitely pretty enough and I prefer seeing lace over cleavage anyway, but if that is not your thing then this is maybe not the bra for you. The bra is pretty and delicate and I just cannot believe how lovely and round my breasts look in it!
My favourite bra ever! Okay, so I haven't been around in the proper bra size world for that long as this is only my first 'real' bra, but it certainly is a good start
Edited To Add:
I have now also added drop-cup nursing clasps to this bra which makes it even more perfect.

I love love love this bra BUT goddamn, it's pointy!
It fits almost perfectly, just the tiniest amount of wrinkling in the nipple area, but only when I'm not standing straight up. It's just super pointy.
The side support paneling is super, comforting? Same with the tightness of the band. It's hard to describe how amazing this bra feels. Putting it on was almost like a relief! I love the color and the fabric is PERFECT. Seriously, I don't want to take it off. Ever.
ARGH! Why is it sooooo pointy? I am so torn on this bra. I LOVE IT, but I don't like how pointy it is. I tried it with a bunch of t-shirts and just can't do it. I don't mind regular pointy, but this is like WHOA pointy. It's also juuuust too small for me to add some nipple covers to try and even it out.
I guess I could try it in 28FF? Not sure though.

I have very cone-like projection to begin with, and this bra just seems to emphasize that. There isn't enough projection in the bottom of the cup for me. The lace on top cuts into and flattens my tissue. So sad. This bra is gorgeous, especially in the bluebell shade.

At first it felt a little loose but comfortable, but soon felt unsuportive and squashed.

Band was so tight and straps were so short that upon trying it on for the first time I pulled a muscle in my back. I got somewhat used to it (without any damage) and moved the straps to be the longest. It's very beautiful but I'll be looking for a slightly bigger one -- maybe a 30F.
This was a strong recommendation from the bra recommendation engine.

I am even fullness and average on the shallow/projected scale with wideish roots. The wires don't go out far enough for me, but it's not too much of an issue. Other than that this bra fits well and is very pretty. The lace does a decent job at containing nipples.

A few months ago I tried this bra from Amazon. It fit perfectly except that it was too pointy for me, so I returned it. Once I returned it, I regretted returning it and have been on the look-out for another one that wasn't orange, red, or pink.
This one came in the mail today and I couldn't be happier!
It feels like a breast hug, not a bra. It fits me perfectly and it's totally not as pointy as I thought it was. It's actually not even very pointy at all. The only tiny complaint I have is that the fabric is a tad itchy. Nothing bad, just noticeable. I'll probably soak it in conditioner a couple times and see if that fixes it. It's not even something I'll care about if it doesn't change because it's seriously the most perfect bra for my boobs.
The Panache Andorra would make my boobs smile, you know, if they could.

This is the second bra I have in this model. I feel more secure in this bra than any other model. It does minimize the boobs a bit and makes them a bit pointy, but it lifts well and holds them in. Very tight, secure band that keeps it's firmness. Firmer, heavier tissue may fill out the bra more and make it less pointy, as the material is pretty stretchy.

I should have got this in 28FF - it's definitely too small, but the stretchy lace makes it wearable. It's a tiny bit too shallow for me, but just a bit. The side support panels seem to help prevent the extra space I usually have at the outside of cups. The gore is digging in a bit - I think it would be more comfortable if it was higher.
This gives a "green" shape (bit pointy, ski-slope effect). I like it fine.
The straps are set narrow enough for me, hurray!
I thought the color was going to be closer to coral, but got it anyway because it was a good sale. It is a gorgeous bright pink.
ETA: After bending the gore, this fits really well. Apparently this is just a modification I will have to do for gores of this height.

Pros: This bra offers fantastic side support. The bra in general offers fantastic support, so much that I feel myself standing straighter. In fact, I'd say the bra forces better posture on my part. I guess this is what it feels like to have the bra support the breasts instead of my shoulders and back doing the work.
Cons: I really wanted to like this bra. However, it lends a somewhat conical profile to my breasts. The apex of the bra and of my breasts align perfectly so that, beneath clothing, I end up with Howard Hughes/sweater girl look. I suspect that my breasts do not project enough or ... that I simply don't have enough volume. It does look more rounded if I wear a half-cup insert. When I went down a cup to the sister size 30DD, the smaller cup generated a slight quad-boob effect at the same time as an even more pronounced bullet bra look. The lace could be a bit better made. It is fraying a little bit already. And it gets itchy as the day goes on.
Because the bra provides such great support, I'm not willing to part with this bra. Although I won't be able to wear it with my usual t-shirts, it's a great bra to wear at home lounging around or underneath something that's less form-fitting. So, yes, I'm keeping it and will likely get another one when this needs to be replaced.
