Nice looking bra, good quality. Just not the right shape for me. The wire on the side is too short so my tissue migrates to the armpits and spills. The cups are too small so there's quadding in the center top.

EDIT: im looking at selling this, as its unwearable due to shape and gore issues. i dont think its right for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Bought this from a Facebook swap group with the knowledge that the purple version runs small. The previous owner says she wore it once or twice, so its basically still completely new. Ive been after a 34FF for a while, after i tried on a 32FF with an extender and found it looked pretty good. This bra still has issues that bother me, but its overall probably the best fit I've found so far on my fitting journey. Hopefully ... i can find a bra similar, but without the cons of Andorra.
**this purple color is gorgeous! very deep plum, i love it.
**the band feels snug but not painful.
**i think the wires are finally the right width.
**The stretch lace is forgiving of my different sized breasts, and i experience no quad boob or gaping- yay!
**the gore is HORRID. its not as bad as Cleos, where when i bend or sit it feels like I'm being impaled, but the top half of the gore presses so hard into me that i have a really deep indent and i cant stand to actually wear it for more than a few minutes because of it. maybe it will soften up with time and wear?
**The "sling" inside the up does its job on the larger left side, but on the smaller right side, it leaves a weird indent in the side of my breast. i have to tighten the strap more on that side, and i've seen other reviews that say tightening the straps too much will pull on the sling and do this. it seems like a crappy design feature that you cant have the straps where the need to be to even out breast sizes, and its not as though i am pulling the strap very tight- its a smidgen more.
**the lace at the bottom of the band rolls, which wont be terrible as long as it rolls out and not under. if it rolls under, i imagine painful pinching will occur. the lace at the top of the cups rolls a little here and there too, probably because it's elastic. Not a deal breaker for me, but may be for others.
**the shape is more "retro". Not hugely pointed, but not really something i think i like. It's very similar to my naked shape and makes me uncomfortable. On my smaller side its more extreme. If i had no other choice, i might get used to it, but id prefer to find something rounder.
**The horizontal seams show through my lightweight t shirts, and the full cup style means i cant wear this with even a slight v-neck. this is nitpicky, but worth mentioning.
**I dont feel very supported in this. Sitting still, i feel lifted, but moving around not so much. i agree with other reviews that i wouldn't want to wear this on a day i might need to catch a bus!

Fits true to size. The band was a bit tight when I first got it, but I've lost some weight and it fits well now. Cups fit perfect when first bought, now they are wrinkling a bit. I find that the lace detail can be a bit scratchy if you're not wearing a shirt and it starts to rub up on your arms.

This is a beautiful lacy bra that gives good support and lift. Front projection, nice shape to the breast.

Pleasantly surprised! When I felt the material, I thought it would be too soft to wrangle the girls, but it manages. The band felt a little pinchy after a day of wear, but no moreso than any other new bra would. The shape is nice - I prefer to be hauled up a little higher, but the shape is good and the lace is so light and breathable.
Definitely order your sister-size up a band, and perhaps consider going down a cup size too. I measure 32FF, but after reading reviews I went with this. I think that the 34FF cups are just ok, perhaps a little borderline large. I want to try a 34F just to see if I can tweak a great fit into perfection.

This bra is about two cup sizes small. I would prob Need a 34 GG, possibly a G. Band felt true to size

Perfect fit, very comfortable. I had tried the 34F and it was a tad small after the swoop and scoop. Nice lift and cup separation. The band is snug but stretchy; I'll wear extenders until it loosens up. The gore and wires at the side dig in a bit, but its manageable.

I loved this bra while it still fit me well - it's a little too big now. The lace is gorgeous, and I adore the spice color, as it's the perfect shade of red. This bra has the most comfortable cups, and I never have to reach in to adjust my boobs. The only con is that the underwire at the center gore pokes into my sternum a little, which is uncomfortable at times.

I really like the design and quality of the bra, but unfortunately it is waaaaaaay too small for me. Even though it's my base size, it's almost impossible to wear the thing without it digging in to me and leaving marks after only a few minutes. And the underwire keeps digging into my sternum because it's too high and seems to want to drill through the bone. It's a shame, really, because it's a fantastic bra if it fits you correctly!

Overall this is a close fit and the only other bra that's come close is the Panache Fern.
Any complaints I have about this bra are minor. The gore tacks but slightly digs in. The wire under the armpit does poke a little. The band also is a hair too tight. I would suggest going up a size if you don't like tight bands.
I'm pretty happy with this bra and love the way my breasts look in it. I'm so happy to finally have two bras that come so close to fitting!
