My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.
This review is for the blush-nude colorway.
Holy wow, is this bra small. The 30G I bought new on ebay must fit a more typical 26 or 24, because I can't see how it would even fit someone at a 28, much less me. I wear 30s (and 32s in bands that run small), but this is ridiculous.
I honestly don't know how it fits, other than the cups are too small to be a 30G (nor a possible 30F or 32G, US) because I held them up to my boobs to check; it might ... have something to do with the 2 (!) sets of non-removable pushup pads (one on the bottom and one on the side). Also, I can only barely fasten it around my 26" waist, and that is risking some serious seam bursting - it definitely can't go any higher.
Update: I compared it to my new 28GG - Curvy Kate » Flaunt Bra (CK106) to see how much smaller it is, and you can see it in the photos - supposedly, a 28GG and a 30G should be fairly similar if you line up the underwires, but the Parisa is smaller by at least a cup or two. My guess is that it's about a 30F, so combined with the tiny band I would postulate an actual size of 26G, or even a 24GG.
As far as I can tell, the shape of the cup looks like it would be good for shallow and/or FOB boobs, because the apex seems high, but it's really hard to tell. Above the apex the cup is very short, so it probably wouldn't cut into tall breast roots.
There is a little bit of a dimple on the outside of the cup where the pushup cookies meet, but I don't think it's too terribly obvious. I like that it has 4 hooks, and it is a lovely plunge bra that seems to be well-constructed. Parisa's nude shade is also pinkish, which makes it just a little bit blush, which is pretty. On the whole, though? Good grief.
I asked a friend who is teeny to try it on. She wears 28s when she can find them but ought to be in 24 bands and said that it was a great, comfortable fit.

Holy jesus this bra is small. If I thought my Japanese sized bras were too small, well this is EVEN smaller, if you can imagine that. The Japanese ones, I can at least close. Run away from this bra unless you're truly smaller than 28, or if you have extenders up the wazoo.
It's very well made. Everything is smooth and silky, and if I could wear it, I bet it would be comfortable. Plunge and narrow gores are good for my close set breasts. Pushup padding adds a size, if you're into that.
The padding is heavy, so it cuts the cup size down. The cups seem to be the equivalent of 28E cups? The straps are also very wide-set.
The band is way too freaking small. It only stretches up to 26, and it is very firm. I'm between 28 and 30. It doesn't even fit my sis who has a 27 ribcage. WTF was Parisa smoking when they labeled this a 30 band?

Sizing nightmare!!! I can't even fasten the supposed 30F without a 4-inch extender, and I have a 28-inch ribcage (I wear 30-32 G-GGs for comfort). The cups are about the size of my old 38C bras and very heavily padded. I don't know what happened here, but it's either mislabeled or I've been duped.
Quality-wise, it's actually very nice. The fabric is smooth, the padding would probably give a good push-up effect if I could afford it (i.e. if I fit into the cups) and there's nothing on it that could be remotely itchy. I'm just massively confused as to how something with a 26-inch stretched band could be labeled as a 30.

This bra runs incredibly small! I can barely close it on the last set of hooks!

This bra is small.
I bought it thinking it's be a good push up but when I got the bra... It barely stretched so there was no way to get it on. With almost a full band extender in place, the cups were even, wide and too small for me.
I would suggest this for someone who is wide rooted, fairly shadow and measures at a 26F/FF or 24FF/G because it's so small! It feels very well made and is a crazy push up, I'd love to keep it, but I it's just not a match for me.

This bra is a mess.
I actually thought I purchased the 30DDD but accidentally got the 30G THAT is how similar they look.
This is definitely not a 30G. It measures like I'd imagine a 26FF maybe. Possibly 26F.
Though if I understand correctly Parisa is a US brand? Perhaps this is equivalent to UK 30F? Or at least supposed to be. The band is definitely 24-26. So I guess 26G ish.
I bought it at Burlington Coat Factory. I knew the band was way too small -it's like a 24 or 26. I planned to use an extender with it and try it on at home. So I did.
The cups are ... somewhat small, but I think that has a lot to do with the fact that the gore is like miles apart. The cups therefore begin at a ridiculous spot on my boobs and make me spill. Then there's extra cup on the sides because they are just too wide apart
The material is very nice and comfortable, but there's a lot of padding. Would give a light push up if my boobs were actually able to be fully in the cups.
ALSO considering the 30DDD and G are so similar in cups, just a forewarning, it appears the higher you go, the smaller the cup stays.
Needless to say, I probably either won't be keeping this or the gore distance is being altered.
