I love the Fiona. Parfait makes some of my favorite bras, but this one really hit all of my buttons. I love the high cup, the wide textured straps, the generously tall band, and the shaping. The foam cups give a smooth line without a push-up effect, and the quality feels impressively good. I have owned Fionas in nearly every color possible, and started buying them at a 28E about four years ago. I transitioned to a 30D, then went to a 30DD/30E after gaining some weight. I have even fullness (maybe slight bottom weight), widely spaced breasts with wide roots. This bra is sort of my "gold standard" for fit. Every time I try a new bra, I compare it to the way the Fiona fits. This isn't the most elegantly shaped bra, and it definitely doesn't diminish the appearance of breast tissue. I find that I tend to look slightly bigger than I am when I wear one with typical clothing. However, the overall effect is basically perfect. Highly recommended.

On me this winds up being a full cup bra rather than a usual balconette shape. The cups are very, very tall. They don't feel too deep, or too wide, they just come up really high on my very short torso. The tall sides keep tissue in the cups, which is great, but the straps don't adjust short enough for me. I'll have to alter them, somehow. They are made of a rubbery type of material that has wedges in it. The wedges are great for keeping the straps from slipping and losing the right length, but since the straps don't adjust ... short enough the wedged part just adds extra bulk on my frame. Fiona is a sturdy, comfortable bra. I thought the cups would be more "half-cups"; like Ewa Michalak styles. Actually, Fiona is quite similar to Cleo Juna, but Fiona has much taller sides. It's a tall-cupped t-shirt bra with stretchy elegant lace on the cups. Like all Parfaits, it seriously has to be "broken in" and it doesn't start to feel quite right until it's been worn and washed several times. The bra is a perfectly suitable everyday bra and it costs much less than the European brands I love so much. I won't be re-purchasing this particular model though.
