I got this bra used on eBay. It's in great shape and I don't think it was heavily worn. A lot of people talk about how unflattering this particular bra is and while I agree that it doesn't give me a shape I'd care to show off, it does fit better than unlined bras usually fit me (in the respect that it doesn't cause deep and obvious creases where the seams are). I don't know my actual size yet (due to deflation, it is becoming clear that I need something a bit smaller than what my measurement put me in), but these DD cups are definitely too big ... on me. I get a ton of gaping along the top when I lean even slightly forward. Even though it doesn't look particularly sexy, it actually feels pretty good on and I have been wearing it around the house to get used to a bra with wider wires and a tighter band.
The material of the cups is a non stretchy mesh. The shiny embroidery is actually kind of delicate and pretty. The nude colorway is a pretty good match on my very fair skin. It feels like a well-made bra. I like the way the wing area pulls in my often neglected side tissue and the armpit side of the underwire is a comfortable height for me. I do get a little bit of stabbing with the low gore, but this seems to be a problem in all of the bras I have tried so far and I am beginning to suspect it has less to do with the gore itself than it does with how other parts of the bra are fitting. (It happens regardless of gore height.)
The 30 band is quite stretchy, but feels snug enough. (I just looked at the pictures I had my partner take from the back and I was shocked to see how tight it appears. And that I apparently have previously undetected back fat. I'm slim but out of shape. I don't know if it looks so tight because I've been wearing it all day or what. It DEFINITELY does not feel like it fits as tight as it looks.)
I need a lot of support and this does actually pull my boobs up to where I think they ought to be and allows them to have a natural looking slope. I will probably try it in a 30D, just to see, since right now I am trying so hard to figure out my actual size in something that fits.
