This is a gorgeous, moulded, demi-cut bra. The multi-layered bow and victorian charm are a classy touch.
The band is tight for a 30, which is nice. The 30F only has two hooks (when you go up to a FF there are 3!). The straps keep the pinstripe look going, but it is not as decorative as the thicker straps of the 30FF. The downside to the pinstriped straps means they are only halfway adjustable. While I normally have to do some serious strap adjustment, I didn't in this bra, so the partially-adjustable straps weren't a problem.
The cup is shallow in the center, like most Parfait's ... I've tried. That being said, the gore does tack despite my quadboobing. However, there is some serious shape incompatibility. My center heavy boobs get pushed up and out by this bra, causing a bit of an east-west appearance. On me, the apex of the bra is out to the sides (I swear I look like a box when I look down on it - flat from the front all the way out to the seam, then straight back to my sides). A friend tried it on though (shallower, more FOT boobs, not center heavy at all) and she looked stunning in it despite it being a size too big. No weird apex stuff at all. I get cleavage in this bra. Not deco cleavage, and not squished up cakes on a plate cleavage, but classy, gently rounded top and center cleavage (ignore the quadboob). The lace on the top of the cups will show through a thin shirt.
Despite the shape incompatibility, I love this bra. The pinstripes make me feel like a classy, sexy 1920's gangster. I seriously wish I could wear it as a top. Every time I put it on I feel like I need a fedora and a martini. If only it fit my boobs better!

Pretty pinstripe with a neat little bow and pendant (mother-of-pearl facsimile). The bra seems decently made, but wow, the band is tight! I couldn't fasten it without an extender; definitely more like a true 28 than a 30. The cups were decently deep at the bottom, but I still get square boob from the top view (not uncommon, since the Parfait gores tend to be too wide on me anyhow). Not too shabby, otherwise. Cups are nice and narrow, band is firm. The straps are a little thin and wide-set for my liking, but they'd be easy to move. I will be looking for this in a bigger band size.

Too small in the cup for me, the gore does not tack, but it is really pretty so I kept it anyways, I love black/white color combos, I have a few bras that are black and white =) The little charm on the gore is a super cute detail too. The apex of the cups point a little east/west on me and the front part is kind of flat so looking down my bust line looks kind of like a rectangle but the shape does not look odd from other angles. I'm not sure if this shape is just the nature of the bra or if it ... is because I am wearing it in a too small size. It is a molded cup but the outer fabric does have a seam going up the cup, I don't think the seam would be noticeable under thin shirts as it is small and lays very flat but the fabric also has a section of lace along the top edge and I think that would be visible under tight fitting tops, so it is not a smooth cup bra despite being molded. The straps are kind of thin and can dig in a little bit (not painfully though) but the band is nice nd firm and supportive.

I love love love this bra. It's beautiful, soft, smooth, and it provides a nice uplifted and round shape. As a word of precaution, the band is very firm and not stretchy. When I first got it, it was too tight, but now that I've had some tissue migration, it fits my ~28.5" ribcage perfectly.
