The recommendations page on Bratabase had this bra as a good match for me, though it recommended the 30E size instead of the 32DD that I ended up getting. I absolutely fell in love with this bra's retro look and bold colors, but I was really hesitant to order it. After looking at all the reviews and pictures on here for this bra, it seems to fit only a small number of people well. I'm really glad that I took the chance and ordered it anyway, because it fits surprisingly well for me.
I did have to bend the tips of the wires out a little ... at the gore, as they were a little bit uncomfortable. After I did that the gore was fine. I'm really, really glad that I did not size down in the band even though from the measurements it looks like this band should be slightly loose. The band is actually extremely firm and doesn't stretch as much as I thought it would. While it does stretch to 32", it's wide and very strong. I can wear it on the loosest hook, but find it more comfortable to wear it with a strap extender to give me a little more play in the band while it breaks in.
I did notice that after wearing this bra for about 8 hours, it left some red marks on my skin where the band and the side boning were. They faded quickly, but I've never had a bra leave marks on me before. I'm chalking it up to how wide and firm the band is. This bra isn't uncomfortable to wear, but I'm much more aware of it while on than any of the other bras I own.
This bra really "locks and loads" my breasts up high and front and center! I feel really trussed up, but not in an uncomfortable way. It looks great under shirts, but the center and middle seams do show through a little under thinner material. It was such a hit with my husband that I ordered this bra in two more colorways (hot pink and purple). Can't wait to see how those look.

This is a molded cup, underwire bra. The band extends below the cup more than most (trying to hint at the look of a longline bra, but not nearly that low). This was very flattering (holds in loose bits of skin & flab without looking dowdy) and comfy.
I really, really wanted this bra to fit because it is super cute and sexy, but it didn't. It is gorgeous in the purple. (Also tried the sister size of 34D which fixed many issues but made one much worse. Reviewed separately.)
* Strap separation was too wide. No amount of adjustment would ... keep them from slipping because of they laid on the highest point of my shoulder. I seriously considered keeping this bra and using a X-back style strap connector, but that seemed silly.
* Band length was a bit short (the 34 band was a better fit).
* Wing height was borderline short. (Tiny underarm spillage.)
* Cup gapped at center edge.
* Gore: good
* Wire length: GOOD (This is a toughy for me. I need long wires for wide-set breast tissue but am petite so many long wires poke into the armpit.)
* Cup width: Wider than most, so not bad (This is good since most cups aren't wide enough.)
About me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
* average projection
* wide-set (3 fingers width of space between breasts)
* very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
* short roots
* even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
* mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
* conical shape (but will squish to round)
* full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
* petite (5'3") so have narrow frame

I am tall, with low, wide, shallow, widely spaced, FOB breasts and a promient sternum. I am between a 32 and 34 in band size, so this fits well with a bra extender, which I'm happy with. This bra gives a nice projected shape to my shallow breasts, but the cut of the bra shows under most of my clothing. This is the ONLY bra I own whose straps do not have to be completely extended!

This bra is beautiful, and fit, for the most part. I had a little quadboob in the 32D, while in the 32DD I felt like I was a little shy of filling the top of the cup. The foam padding of the cup kind of compensated. The straps are wide set, but not problematic. It looked gorgeous on its own, but the close set apex projection was more apparent under clothing, and I am not sure it is the right shape for my preferences. I felt a little pointy. I was torn, but ultimately decided to exchange to try something else.

This bra is a little too wide in the gore for me at the top. Lightly padded, seamed bra, with no push-up padding. Snug band. Full coverage on me.
When i tried this bra in a 32D and 32DD, the height of the cup was the biggest difference. also the apex was in a higher place in the larger size.

The underwires of this bra come just shy of sitting on my outer breast tissue, but it still feels comfortable. The fabric and construction of this bra are a little stiff and the band is snug. It gives me a very lifted and centered shape under shirts, which I like. I already had this bra in red and I liked it so much that I got the wild pink and wine purple colorways as well. There is a very slight amount of gaping at the top outer edge of the cup when I extend my arm forward, but it is minimal. I also tried on the 32DDD in both the wild pink and the wine purple, so see my other review for comparisons.

This bra fits me very well and gives me quite a lot of lift. The construction is a bit stiff, but not uncomfortable. The band does not seem to be quite as tight as the red version of this bra in 32DD. The underwires are just shy of sitting on the outside breast tissue, but they feel OK (I'm shallow breasted, with wide roots). There is a slight bit of gaping on the outer top edge of the cup when I extend my arm forward, but it is very minor compared to the gaping that I got in the 32DDD. Love the dark purple color. I'm definitely keeping this one.

love love love....first bra I am going to keep because it actually fits, doesn't minimize my size, looks great and makes me feel great. A little bit of a pointer shape than I am use to but not in a bad way.
