I bought this bra to replace the Jeanie in 30F which was too big for me. Size wise, this fits much better in the cups and the band is nice and firm, and I feel well supported and it gives a nice rounded shape. It's a basic bra but the lace makes it a little nicer. The colour I have is "European Nude" which was darker than what I was expecting, but is otherwise fine.
The cups are stiffer than the Jeanie. The tags on the back band are pretty scratchy, although it'll probably soften up over time. The shoulder straps feel like they ... have sharper edges than the ones on the Jeanie as well. I like the way this bra looks, but looks aside, next time I'd go back to the Jeanie just because it was more comfortable.
Update: The top edges of the cup have a tendency to turn out in time. I don't know if it's because the outer fabric has shrunk, but it's kind of annoying.
Update 2: The top edges have curled so much that I had considered this unwearable and was about to toss it. I cut a long slit on the fabric along the top edge of the cups just to see if it made a difference and it totally restored the shape! In the photo you can see the amount the outer fabric has shrunk (I didn't cut any fabric away). Not sure if I would wear this as is under a t-shirt, but under a white sweater it looks completely fine.

I find this bra to be very similar to the 30E Parfait By Affinitas Jeanie. It's almost the perfect molded plunge for my shallow, wide rooted boobs.
The cups fit well, without the usual quadboob on top. It may be my imagination, but the shape of the Casey is not quite as good for me as the Jeanie, though they are very similar.
Sadly, just like the Jeanie, the straps too far apart. They sit in my armpits, causing the cups to gap if I bring my shoulders too far forward.

I like this bra, despite the nude-for-me being too greenish-gray beige. I prefer beige that is clear with pink or peach undertones. My gripe with this bra is the cup edges are too thick or tilt out so they show under thin, clingy t-shirts. I rarely wear clingy t-shirts, but when I do, I don't want obvious bra cup lines. The center gore is a true plunge. I need very low gores because of my lack of space between the boobs. The cups aren't too high coverage. The straps aren't insanely wide-set, like those of certain Polish bras. The straps aren't too skinny, so they don't chafe. The bra is comfortable. The usefulness of a seamless, plunge, molded cup bra is almost canceled out for me by the obviousness of the cup edges under my favorite gray t-shirt.

This Fuchsia Rose color fits as well as my other Parfait by Affinitas Casey in 30E, which is in the original beige with an odd greenish tint. I don't know what they called that original beige color. It preceded the tan one they're calling European Nude. Anyway, the band on the 30E Parfait by Affinitas Casey in Fuchsia Rose stretches to only 28" for me. I am a reformed overstretcher. Now when I do my tedious measuring, I make sure not to distort the wires.
I hope this bra will stretch a bit with wear. The color is amazing. It's exactly the kind of deep pink I like best. ... This one edges slightly toward violet. The color is clear, deep pink--not coral, not red--but avoids any appearance of neon fluorescence. I just realized the buttons on Bratabase that are deep pink, like "Save changes" or "Edit this bra" or "Log out" are very similar to this Fuchsia Rose color. What a coincidence!
I just realized another thing. The name Parfait by Affinitas chose for this bra, Fuchsia Rose, is PERFECT. It's exactly fuchsia infused rose. Fuchsia is a purely cool toned, electric pink. Mix rose in there, and it has a hint of warmth, of spring's weak yellow rays on winter's coldness For once the color name of a bra is accurate! I'm going to have to write them. After the disastrous naming of the color European Nude, I'm sure they need bucking up. If my photos don't capture the color adequately, I'll reshoot them.
I'm mostly wearing my Ewa Michalak 3Ds, but so many of them have sharp edges. This is inexcusable in a bra. So I alternate with my Parfait by Affinitas Casey and Masquerade Tiffany Plunges. In my EM 3Ds, I wear 65F, roughly equivalent to 30F in UK sizes. My Masquerade Tiffany Plunges are 28FF and 30F. The Parfait by Affinitas Casey is somewhat deeper in the cups, especially toward the center gore, so I can size down in the cups.

I found the band of this bra very comfortable but the cups were not right for my shape (FOB, slightly projected). I have gapping on the top and near the gore. The lace part where the cups meet my underarm was rubbing a bit and I could imagine it might get irritating throughout the day

I guess I was hoping for a Deco alternative (Deco isn't a great fit for me). It is more of a Deco clone and fit issues I have with Deco are the same here. Cups gape in the center a bit, cups are too high on outer sides. It fits fine in a way and looks OK under clothes, but it isn't my perfect T-shirt bra that seems to only exist in my head. Meh.

This bra is lovely; comfy and give me a pretty nice shape. Unfortunately, with my shape (FOB) I need to go down a cup size, as I experience some gaping at the top. Also, the band is a true 30, and was almost too loose for my taste. (I measure at 28 in the bra calculator but sized up for comfort). I wish it fit me, because it is so comfortable!

I guess I really only needed to make the band tighter on my 30F; I end up quadboobing in a 30E. This is a really comfortable bra, even if the wires are too wide for me.

After recent weight loss, I desperately needed a new bra. I'm so glad I went to a shop instead of just ordering [one of those other molded plunge bras] online! Not only is this one significantly less expensive, but it also fits me better. I did have to knock points off for quality and comfort because one corner of the bra was poking me, but I filed it down a little with a nail file, and it's no longer an issue. As others have noted, the bands on Parfait bras do seem to run a little tighter than other brands, which is a good thing in my opinion!
