Bought from allybean! Thanks Allybean!!
The. Best. Bra. Ever!! Barely even needed to S+S because it just fit that perfectly, haven't worn it all day but I'm expecting it to be as comfortable as any bra could be. Feels like it was made specifically for me!

I got this bra from AllyBean (thanks!). Unfortunately, the Jasmine wasn't a great match for me. I need a lot more immediate projection at the wire to avoid pain on my ribs. (https://imgur.com/a/jSQ7YOj)
Other than that, here are some items of note. I was surprised at how short the straps are; long enough but but barely (I'm short). This gave a HARD tack, left marks on my sternum. I also would have had to alter the gore to overlap the wires but that's not the Jasmine's fault. The side wings are nice and low!! I wonder if I need a more supportive cradle. Whenever I reached for something I felt my boobs were going to jiggle right off the planet.

I already have Jasmine in 30GG (grey Animal print - slightly small) and 30H (Ricamo floral print). Like many people here, I love this style for the stretch lace which means full on top friendly!
This old colourway I really loved - it's like an impressionist flower painting! - but was no longer available anywhere. Then someone sold it brand new with tags on EBay, in 32GG.. I couldn't resist!
Why this size?
Because my 30GG was a bit too small, and sizing up to 30H hadn't turned out perfectly either. Then I thought, because the 30's were still quite snug in the band, could 32GG be the solution? ... (And of course yay for this colour suddenly being thrown into my lap)
Well, the fit is not great on me. I should have predicted how sizing up in the band would also mean a 'wider' bra, meant for someone with a larger frame - even in my own size I always have issues with chafing straps in my armpits :/
So that's definitely an issue with this 32GG.
On the bright side, I do fill out the bottom of the cups better. In my 30GG & H there's a bit of an orange in a glass effect because apparently I need more immediate projection? Well, this 32GG gives me more room there. However this also means that on my smaller breast, I have some wrinkling near the apex (visible in front picture). Shouldn't happen in Jasmine because she's stretchy. Also as you can see in pictures, on me this has a bit more coverage than Jasmine is meant to have. So the cups are a bit too big (and seem bigger than my 30H, even though they're sister sizes).
As for the band, surprisingly it fit pretty well on the loosest hook. Might have to move down soon though, but that makes sense as I normally mostly wear a 30 band.
All in all, this bra is wearable but not too comfy. Love the print & look, but not sure if I can make it work with these fit issues. How I wish bra manufacturers did something about their strap placement / wideness - I know I'm not the only one who needs more centered straps!
Edit: passed this on to a friend, suited her better!

Measured on tightest hook: Buy narrower wire, band, and closer set strap,

Great bra for full on top boobs. Very similar shaping and fit as the Panache Envy, though I found Jasmine to be a bit more snug in the band, at least when brand new. Not enough to go up a band size and nothing an extender can't fix for the first few wears. Stretch lace on the top of the cups is great for full on top boobs, as well as asymmetry. I also think the seams aren't as thick as the Envy. One of my new favorite bras. Side note: the panties seem to run a bit small. I usually take a large in Freya, Fantasie and most other brands I've tried. The panties (the shorts style, not the thong) were a bit more snug than I'm used to, but wearable .

Much better fit than the 32h. There might be a bit extra fabric under the cup, but it doesn't affect the fit. Lace on top is very accommodating to different size breasts. This blue color is beautiful! Lace and seams are generally hidden under clothes.

The fit on this is incredibly similar to the Cleo Marcie. I'd be hard pressed to really mark a difference between them -- except the Jasmine has THREE hooks in the back instead of two, so I automatically love it a little more. The fit's great: makes me happy. The bra's adorable: makes me very happy.

This bra creates a nice round shape and fits perfectly in the cups and band when I put it on. The band seems larger than most other 32s I've ever tried, but the largest set of hooks is fine - not too loose. However, the thing rides down like you wouldn't believe. I suspect that it's that the cup is just a bit too shallow in the bottom (which I'm sure is what contributes to that rounded shape I love) - the measurements are really similar to another bra (the Prima Donna Madison), but something about the cut of the cups makes this one not fit quite as well. But oh, the shape. I keep trying it on to see if I can figure out a way to get it to not ride down, but so far I've been unsuccessful - and then I have some flying out of the top of the cup, which is not a good look. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

I exchanged my 32H for a 32GG on here and this fits better since the wires aren't in my armpits. I've only worn this a few times so far and right now it's the time of the month when my breasts are larger than usual, so it's a bit too small in the cups, but it should fit well the rest of the time. The band on this one is a bit looser than the 32H I had though, so I'm wearing it on the tightest hooks. Hopefully the band stays as firm as it is currently so I can get a lot of wear out of this.

I was a little bit disappointed, bra is nice and everything but I think it's not giving my boobs Cleo lifthttps://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> It feels like fabric/or cut are struggling with weight of boobs.
I was sure bra fits me 100% but after few ties I know I need 32h.
