I would tell a friend:
-The band fits perfectly in a 28.
-It is beautiful.
-The cups are filled completely, no quadboob, no hollow underboob, etc.
-The cups run small. I'm normally a 28ff, and had to up to a g.
-The straps are set pretty far apart, which isn't a problem for me really as I have broader shoulders.
-There is just a SLIGHT discomfort of the cup against my armpit/breast tissue. It seems to be cut high, but it may just be that I'm getting used to larger cupped breasts after finding ones with the proper band and cup size.
All in all it is a lovely look when on, but I wouldn't recommend to an especially narrow shouldered friend, or a petite friend if the cups are cut high on me, and I am "normal" height.

When I first tried on this bra, the top part of the gore poked into my chest a little bit, but I bent them out a little bit and it is no longer a problem. This bra fits so well! The only little things about it that could be considered bad it that if my shoulders aren't pulled back (ie if I slump over a little bit), there is the tiniest bit of gaping on my smaller breast. Also, when I adjust the straps to fit tightly enough, they sit nearly on my collarbone. This isn't really a big deal for me though, as ... it's not uncomfortable-- I can hardly tell. The band stretches perfectly, it's not too tight nor too loose. The underwires, so far at least, do not dig into my ribs as previous bras I've had did, it sits right under my inframammary fold. My breasts are pretty self-supporting so they don't 'conform' very well to bras that are too wide or too shallow or long, and this bra holds them very well without any squeezing in the wrong places. It also gives my the very tiniest amount of cleavage!
As far as fitting under clothes, you can't see the lines under dark clothes or the line at the top of the cup. It gives a very projected shape, nice and rounded, however slightly more pointed then my Tiffany bandeau, which is possibly the roundest bra I've ever come across.
Update: After having this bra for about 3 weeks and wearing it on the first hook, I decided to try it on the second hook, and voilà! Gapping issue at the top of the cups solved.

This bra is just beautiful!
For once the wires were not poking the side of my boobs, this time the pain comes from the centre gore which is way to high for me, digging in the sternum.
I might try to shorten it (if I have time and patience).
Other point I have noticed is that it makes a nice round shape under clothing, but pointy on the right side... a bit odd.. I'll be investigating..
I will try to review a bit longer once I know a bit more.

I love this bra! for some reason, all of Parfait's bras that I've tried work really well with my breast shape, and this one is no exception. While it didn't really work as a "push-up" in my case, it did provide excellent support and comfort.

Wrong shape for me. I'm quadboobing even though I sized up as recommended. The strap are very wide-set and cut into my armpits.

I got this bra from another user. This is a very sturdy, well-constructed bra! That being said, it fit very tight. I normally fit comfortably in a 28G, sometimes even having to downsize a cup and going with a FF. But this bra seems to run small in both the cup and the band. It felt more like a 26, which I really don't mind (since I am 27"). But the band isn't all that stretchy. I do like that it has 3 hooks and eyes! This is actually my FIRST bra that had more than 2, which is somewhat surprising in the DD+ range. But I think ... this bra might soften up a bit after a wash or two, and it just might need to be broken in a little. I did get some quad boob and the gore was a little too high for me, causing the wires to dig into my sternum. This def isn't your everyday, practical type of t-shirt bra. But it is very cute, and makes a nice addition to my "bedroom only" collection It gives a nice lift and the padding isn't thick at all, more of cushioned lining. I would def recommend sizing up in this bra, both in the cup and the band. I could probably do a 30G in this.

1) This bra is very, very comfortable in the band and wires, but it is waaay too shallow in the cup, causing major quad-boob. I'm not sure a larger cup will solve my problem or not.
2) Very well-constructed! Solid seaming, and beautiful fabric and detail.

Love, love, love this bra! It's so right for my shape in so many ways:
Wires are just wide enough. Could be a tad wider, BUT the nice boning on the wings adds side support, so I'm good
Sides of cup come up nice and high, encompassing all of my side boob.
Side slings gather said side boob and gently coax it to the front.
Three hooks do a much better job of smoothing back fat than two hooks do. Additionally, the wings are nice and wide.
It just feels so supportive and comfortable!
It is gorgeous!
I feel sexy in it. It's got a burlesque, boudoir, pin-uppy vibe that I just love!
It's very inexpensive considering the quality of the bra.
Now I want it in all of the colors
The only downside: I live in the South, and it does show under thin t-shirts and dresses. I wouldn't exactly call it a t-shirt bra.
