Yay! It fits! I've been lusting after Charlotte for pretty much the whole time I've known about proper bra fit. I discovered her on Large Cup Lingerie and must have gazed longingly at her various shades for far longer than is healthy. I read many reviews, which highlighted her good points (beautiful design, wide band) and some recurring issues (tall cups, stabby painful gore, too long wires) so knew what I was getting into when I ordered the peach version when LCL had a 20% off promo. When it arrived, I popped her on and heard an angelic cheering sound - SHE FIT PERFECTLY! I was worried ... the band may be too tight as often people say she runs small - but my usual 30 band is perfect. Fairly wide which I love, and fairly wide straps also, a la my usual Decos. Cups are very plunge shaped, but shallow enough to accommodate my not-hugely-projected boobs.
Whilst the fit was spot on, I wasn't enamoured with the colour so much in person - so swapped for the brand new to market Purple Wine and SOOO glad I did! It is stunning, a perfect jewel tone. The cups of this one seem a tad deeper than the peach one, but it may be my imagination (or maybe having the straps longer thus giving the illusion of being deeper). I wore it out today for the first time, and so far, so comfortable. No digging anywhere. The cups are a decent height for me (again I was concerned they'd be too high as I'm fairly short) - anyone who finds Deco cup height ok should be fine with Charlotte I'd imagine, they seem fairly comparable. Wires are wider than Deco though I'd say, not a problem for me but may not suit anyone who needs narrower wires than I.
I'm delighted!! Especially with matching high waist knickers in a Large (I'm UK 12/Medium in all other pants, but these run small, size up I'd advise!).
I'm tempted to get a pair of the little pants too....! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":-D" />

Love this bra! Fits snug around rib cage, gore can put pressure on sternum but gets better with wear. Would possibly buy one cup up next time as the cup is barely too small

This bra fits okay if I stand up straight, but gapes horribly if I move my arms anywhere. I think the cups are just taller at the outside by the strap than is ideal for me, and since the straps are so wide my arms push on them and adjust the fit of the cup. The cups are also too shallow at the bottom so I have to be careful the wires don't sit too low. It's such a pretty bra though. I also tried the 32E since I heard it runs small in band and cup, and while that cup isn't actually really too ... large and the band is still tight enough it exacerbates the gapping problem if I move. I do think that while this 30 band is firm, because it's a wider band it is still quite comfortable. I find the volume in the 30E acceptable as well, no quadboobing, so for me I find that my normal size fits. I think the bigger cup on the 32E just offers more coverage while still fitting, so possibly I could go down to a 30DD and get some more exposure without awful quadding.

I've been wanting to try the Charlotte for months and was so glad to find it on the listings for a great price so I could finally get my hands on it. I had heard the band runs tight tho I was skeptical that the 30 would work for me since I take a 28 in unpadded Cleos which are also known to run tight, but the 30 really is perfectly fine. The cups also run small, so basically this 30E is more like a 28E. It's very comfortable, gives a great shape, and I love the almost pin-up inspired design. I highly recommend this one!

Ordered this bra before I knew it ran small.. Definitely fits closer to a 28E in my opinion, so it's very unwearable for me. It's gorgeous, though, and I think if I had ordered it in a couple sizes higher I would have been quite happy with it.

I ordered this along with a 30DD because the website said it was running small by one cup size. This was a better fit in the cups but the straps were now uncomfortable, too close to my underarms. I also found the padding to be thicker than I care for and the seams were noticeable under clothing.

Beautiful bra, but I decided to go 1 and half cups up from my "normal" size (28DD/E) and it ended up being too big https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
I don't feel like the band is actually like a 28.. It stretches to 31 inches, and that's about the size of a 30. Perhaps they updated it be more accurately sized?
I will be exchanging this for a 30DD and be reviewing that one more in depth!

An absolutely gorgeous bra, but didn't fit me in this size. Cups do run small.
