I so would like this bra to work for me. It's gorgeous. The center gore kills me. I've bent the wires away from my sternum, which helped somewhat. The band feels much tighter than a 30. The straps are also too far apart and dig into my arm pits. I'd be willing to give this another go in 32 band, just because I love the style. Currently, I can wear this bra for about 20 minutes before I say enough. Another thing worth mentioning is that the cups seem rather tall-great if you have tall roots, but alas, I do not.

I believe some of the scaling issues on this bra have improved in newer colorways. This is the Dusty Rose which I got in a swap for a red 30D. It comes up incredibly wide, shallow, and closed on top. The outer edge of the cup rests all the way up in my armpit and chafes badly. I also get a lot of quadding because the cup is so closed and flat. I have a red Charlotte in 32DD which is scaled much better. I will probably get rid of this bra at some point since I only wear it when all of my other bras are dirty.

Bought this in Floral Shimmer. The cups run a little big. I have empty space in the cup above the horizontal seam. It's not really noticable in pics since the cups are moulded. Debating if a cupsize down will cause a quadboob effect. Gore tacks but it's definitely too high for my comfort and a smidge too wide. The channels have about 3/4 inch beyond the length of the wire for some maneuvering.

The cups are much too small for me in this size, but the projection/depth is impressive! The gore is nice and narrow, the band is snug, & the wires aren't too wide. The decorations, though, make this bra very difficult to disguise under fitted tops; it's cute but somewhat impractical.
I really hope to try this in a 30FF some day!

I wasn't sure about ordering this bra, because I didn't like the vertical stripes, but it's much more beautiful than I thought. Weirdly enough the 30E cup works for me, although it's slightly on the larger side. In Parfait plunge bras, 30DD is way too big for me.
The shape of this bra is great for me: on the wider side (although they're probably still sitting on breast tissue), but shallow (I have very wide, very shallow tissue, but a lot of center fullness). I have tall roots and these cups are tall, which is great for support, but I do feel them in my armpits so I'd ... have preferred narrower straps. The band is rather tight, although the measurements don't show it, it feels much tighter than the band of my Casey, which is about the same length, but more comfortable. The problem I have with this bra is that the wires are very hard and poke in my sternum. Compared to the Parfait Casey plunge, of which the wires don't bother me at all, the wires are much less flexible. I've tried to bend them and it's a little better now, but it's doesn't feel great. The gore is also way too wide for me. I'm getting tired of altering bras, so I'm returning this. Such a pity, because this truly is a beauty.

I ordered this online after trying one on in Kohls that was a 32F, I wasn't entirely sure what size to get, but I found it for quite a bargain $24 plus 2 pairs of matching panties on ebay. I took a guess on my size and went with the 30E I thought about a 32DD, but it was out of stock. The 30E fits pretty well though it is a bit too tight, but should be fine after a few wears. Overall I am quite please with this bra and it does fit so I'm happy about that. It does show under tshirts though so I probably won't wear it as much as I would like.

Super padded bra. I don't mind too much and it is comfortable, but the amount of padding is borderline absurd. I feel like I can wear this bra comfortable in 3 different sizes (I feel the same way about Juna).

I love the fit of this bra! The band is VERY firm, but I think it's true to size. The only real issue I have with it is that the straps are too far apart. If I wanted to get super picky, the upper line of he cut cuts into my high root just a tiny bit.

I can see why so many people are fans of the Charlotte Padded bra made by Parfait by Affinititas. Tbe retro design gives me a very forward projection. It's definitely a turn on for my boyfriend. Despite the forward thrust the bra provides, my boobs feel a little unsupported at the bottom of the cups. I think most of the support comes from the side of the cup where a wide piece of fabric connects the cup to the band. That fabric pushes my breasts closer together and prevents east west migration which is usually a problem for me. As a result I have fantastic cleavage and my ... breasts look full and front and center. The only problem is that my breasts are closer together than normal and the the center gore doesn't lie flat agaist my sternum as with most other bras. It's not uncomfortable this way at all, but I think some support and upward lift of the breasts is sacrificed. If the gore can't sit flat against my sternum as the rest of the band does around my back, the band as a whole loses it's stability. As a result, my breasts tend to fall down into the cups as the day goes on and feel less supported.
This is truly a minor problem for me though. The overall shape and look this bra gives is really pretty. The support is also phenomenal on the sides of my chest where my breasts tend to migrate. What I like most about this bra is its retro design. It's very pin up girl style. I've always liked that aesthetic and will definitely be keeping my eye out for other similar Affinitas designs.
