Such a cute bra! I love it. This was one I was able to try on in a store in a 30dd and a 30e.
*I think* my usual bra size is 28e/f, but this bra style only goes down to 30. Also, the band is VERY tight. If you normally wear a 30 band, I suggest going up to a 32. So, as a 28 band, I was able to wear the 30 band in this brand. This is tighter than my sole 28e bra (a Curvy Kate bra), so I am very pleased with this one's fit because I knew beforehand how Parfait sizing works! Just be ... careful ordering online! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
You may want to get one cup size up AND a band size up. The top of this bra is tight to hold you in, which I like because I'm not full on top.
I have very close-set breasts, so the center gore comes up too high and starts to poke and separate my breast tissue, which is just not good. In the center of the bra is a double bow and cameo decoration.
The straps are skinny and cute with pinstripes and lace like that on the bra cups and band. They are half-way adjustable and not what I would call stretchy (good!).
I think everything fills out right if I ignore the stabbing the gore. There is no gapping and everything lies flat where it should (besides the very top of the gore, of course) and I get some cute cleavage if I pull the bra down far and tuck everything in well.
I probably still need to push the underwire around a bit to make it comfortable for my bony ribcage, but it was comfortable for about 5 hrs until I started laying around on the couch on my laptop. So the bra is probably too tight for slouchy 'relaxation' poses but fine if you maintain an upright posture or lay flat.
Would I recommend it? Yes if you have more separated breasts. Got the bra for $23 and the panty for $10. Panty also runs tight, in case you were wondering. I could've gotten away with a S instead of XS.
