This bra is gorgeous! I love the color (dark blue with black lace), and the little dangly-thing at the gore is a welcome change from the usual bow. I'm really not a fan of bows and this makes me think about bellydancing. The double skinny straps in the front are a nice touch as well.
Fit-wise, holy crap this is a firm 30 band! I've been wavering between 30 and 28 bands depending on brand, and thank goodness I got a 30 in this one. It does feel pretty comfy (though slightly tight), and I'm hoping it will relax a little with wear. The gore tacks nicely without stabbing, ... and the wires are only slightly too narrow. I plan to try bending them just a tiny bit wider, but a heavy/ vigorous scoop & swoop from the armpits in seems to work just as well.
I've never tried a halfcup before, and looking at it off I'm surprised they were big enough to fit me, but they do. The padded part was a bit squished/ wrinkly from shipping, but I think it'll be ok after a while. The lace was slightly gappy at the top corners of each cup, almost like it wasn't sewn on quite straight, but maybe it's a slight shape incompatibility instead. Whatever it is, I just tacked down a tiny dart of it right next to each strap and now it lays flat, so I'm happy with it. (Disclaimer: I'm still breastfeeding and just put him down for a nap, so therefore a little empty. Cups might fit totally different in a couple hours.)
I've had it on for about 20 minutes now and everything is still comfy, so for now my verdict is: yay for another bra that seems to fit!
