Well, it arrived! Beautiful bra, just as lovely as I thought it would be.
First of all - all those reviews the band runs tight? Not applicable to this one! I can easily hook it on the middle hooks, could do the tightest. The tag reads a 30, but to me it feels and measures like the 32's from this style. In my case, I could have done a 28. I do like the 3 hook closure and how wide the band is all around. *update* - I measured my ribcage a bit wrongly, oops. No wonder it's too big.
Cups - ... oh, so very strange. I have major gapping on my smaller breast. My left and larger breast fills out the cups, at least to the point where I don't think I could have gone down a cup size. My boobs aren't THAT much different, and usually I don't have this much of a problem with my smaller one. But you will see in my pictures once they are approved, how I have so much empty space on my right side the cup wants to fold over on itself https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":-(" />
Gore - comfortable, and I was worried about that. The last time I had this tall of a gore it was painful.
Wires - I measured 5.5"
Otherwise - the cups are pretty tall on the sides. The wire doesn't poke my underarms but the side of the cups at the top wants to rub on it. I will have to wear this one a couple of times to decide if it is a keeper or not. It's not the magical perfect bra I'm constantly searching for, but I've definitely worn worse.
*Update* - I returned it. Can't do the armpit murder https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":-(" />. Too shallow. Too wide. Story of my life.

I wanted to try out Charlotte for a long time and now I had the chance. I got this bra pretty used, but it still fits decently. The colour is pretty darn great and I like the shape it gives me.

I own this bra in 2 different colors: this pink one and a bronze one. I am completely and utterly positive that they are the exact same size and that the only difference is the color. Interestingly, though, this pink bra has 3 hooks, while the bronze has 2; the bronze comes up much higher in the cups, while the pink is almost like a balconette; and the pink fits MUCH smaller than the bronze. The pink 30FF gives my ~28FF boobs quad boob when I thoroughly scoop and swoop, and I only fill about 3/4 of the cup of the bronze one — I gap heavily on ... top. The bronze cuts into my armpits, as does the pink, but the bronze seems to come up much higher so it’s worse.
Well, beyond the extremely weird sizing discrepancy between two bras in the same size, here goes my review of the pink one. It’s a 30 band, but it’s plenty tight on the loosest hook, and I have about a 26.5” snug underbust. It’s not very comfortable because I find the seams a little scratchy and it straight up refuses to sit in my IMF. I can move it up to sit in my IMF, but it’ll just keep slipping down and it’s also super uncomfortable that way. I think the shape is too shallow for me. Because the cups are a little small, the gore doesn’t sit flat, though I don’t have comfort issues there. The straps are wide-set for my frame but not as much so as other bras I have — they don’t slip down much.
I’d recommend this bra for someone on the shallow end of the spectrum, and I’d be sure to buy/order it from somewhere with free returns; I’m not sure if this sizing discrepancy continues across sizes or across different colors than the two bras I have, but it’s worth being cautious.

Pros: Pretty, comfortable, stretchy straps that don't hurt your shoulders
Cons: Shape is wrong for me

I am so happy to have found this bra. In terms of shape, it's the best fitting bra I've found. It feels like it automatically adjusts to my movements and was made for my size. Hooray!
The only issue I have with this bra is the seaming - it's going to be a little difficult finding things I can wear over it without layering, but it's still a gorgeous bra. I would absolutely recommend this bra if you're searching for a 3-part half cup bra that isn't from Poland.

I definitely got much too large of a size. The band runs slightly on the smaller side, while the cups are quite separated and large. This doesn't tack at all with close-set boobs. The padded cups feel nice, though the straps are much too far apart.

I love the Charlotte! Love! This is my best fitting bra so far I think, and while I generally prefer unlined bras the support and shape of this one has been just unbeatable. Plus it dyes really nicely. I love the Dusky Pink color of this bra, (I found the high waist panty runs large in this color though) it could almost pass for a neutral if it didn't have the black,of course then it wouldn't look so nice. I have found that the straps get a bit of fraying at the connection points after several wears though this does not affect the fit or sturdiness of the bra.

I finally found a bra that fits well without any alterations! I love,love, love the fully adjustable straps, I have never had to not alter the straps on a bra before, ever. I do get a tiny amount of quadding on my larger breast if I have been moving around a lot and bending over, but I can adjust the overflow back in easily. I love the firm band on this, it stretches just enough to stay up and it really holds things in place. The sturdy underwire is wonderful too, I love how strong it feels! I love the aesthetics of this bra too,using the matte backside of the satin to contast and add interest on the cups is simply a great idea! I just really love this bra overall; it's a great price, comes in pretty colors, fits well right out of the bag, is very comfortable, has lovely complimentary pieces (don't get me started on them)and is quite easily dyeable (more on this to come). Yay for Charlotte!

I knew it was going to be too small but it was cheap and I wanted to try it so I got it anyway.
No surprise here, it is too small on my large breast by, easily, two or three cups. Though what was a surprise to me is that, from what I can tell so far, it actually fits my smaller one. Granted, I think the wires are too wide on my small one, but they are seemingly perfect on my large. That's just how this works, of course. So that means that if I go up in cup, the wires will just ... get too wide. Very sad.
My breasts are even, narrow, and projected. If I don't scoop my large one 'fits'. No amount of adjusting will fit all that tissue in there after scooping though. It's a comical look really, especially with a shirt on top. There's like a large bump, then a flat area, then a bump again.
The band is just plain delicious. It's nice and firm and fits fantastically and I love it and I wish more companies would make three hooks standard on bras under GG. My BTT is around 27, snug is around 28/29, loose is usually around 30, so solid 30s will probably prefer to size up in band with this bra.
The straps are jussst at the edge near my armpit. If they were anymore further I can foresee them being an uncomfortable problem. And, as you might remember from a few paragraphs ago, the cups are too small, so by sizing up to get them to fit, luck would have it that the straps start under my armpits.

I always wanted to try this bra and finally got my hands on one. I chose a 30FF because I heard it runs rather small.
It seemed ok when I tried it on but after wearing it for a day or so I know it's not the bra for me. The straps dig into my armpits which is a problem other girls had too. The cups don't seem very far apart but I had empty space on the side and my boobs seemed to come out of the top.
I don't know if I need a larger cup or if the shape doesn't seem to work on me. It gave me a shape like an upside down 7 (which I hate!) and I had quadboob. I don't consider myself full on top but bras with open tops always seem to work.
The bra itself is a great construction. It has 3 hooks and the band is quite firm. It has extra boning on the side and 3-part cup. It's a lovely bra but just not for me.
