I have the Harmony in chocolate brown and it's very smooth, silky and generally very beautiful. It also covers my nipples (a BIG plus! I have a problem with most bras with sheer upper parts giving me nip slip) and the band is probably the best-fitting bra band I have ever tried on, meaning that it would be a slightly snug 28. It was even a little *too* snug at the end of the day. The bra fits like second skin and only gapes a little when I breathe out (the sheer part at the top is quite stretchy). The straps are semi-adjustable but adjust long enough.
I ... think the cups run a bit too large.
The underwires are quite wide and end up in my armpits, and even though they don't poke, the edges of the bra rub in. It gets a little better after a few days' worth of wearing, but not much. I'm hoping that the bra will "break in" after a while.
The center gore is rather wide. At first I though it was okay, as it doesn't go up too high, but then I narrowed it by sewing it together - lo and behold, the gore suddenly settled between my boobs properly. So, this bra is better for people with breasts further apart.
The support is AMAZING. Truly awesome. I can run around, jump, bend forward, wiggle around, just about anything, and the boobs stay in place, strapped in tightly and comfortably. The uplift and shape is okay, not the best ever, but manageable, making this my no. 1 everyday basic (next to the Freya Pollyanna).
My main problem with the Harmony is how it looks on me without clothes on. The first thing I thought after looking in the mirror was "Wow, I forgot how huge my boobs can look." It's not as if the Harmony pushed the breasts up or anything, but after wearing a lot of bras which minimised the look of my chest (I'm looking at you, Rococo Charm! and you, Panache Confetti!), the arrival of a dark brown balconette which covered more than half of my boobs was a bit of a shock. I felt rather self-conscious in it, but after wearing it all day and realizing how comfortable it was, this slight drawback was forgiven.
If I were to buy this bra again, I'd probably choose a nude version for everyday wear. I'd also try a 28H on, just to be spared the nagging feeling on "what if" https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
EDIT: Okay, this definitely needs to be worn under at least one stretchy/tight-ish layer - the lace shows through and bunches under looser clothing, creatine a very visible line https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
