I have very shallow, very wide breasts that are slightly conical/tubular in shape.
Many reviews here and elsewhere suggest going up a cup size in this bra, and I'm glad I did. The 30D would have been ridiculous. But the 30DD seems simultaneously giant and just right. I think it feels that way because when I shove all of my breast tissue into the cup, it seems to fit very well. But due to the ridiculous amount of pushup in the bra and my natural breast shape, my tissue all falls out the sides pretty quickly, and the cup starts gapping like mad.
The top of ... the cup, where it meets the strap, is too tall for me and cuts in very uncomfortably at the front of my armpits. The gore is very flimsy, and for whatever reason distorted pretty badly for me. The gore wanted to yaw inwards at the top, making the inside tips of the underwires touch and even overlap one another.
The overall construction was pretty good. The bra seems like a very sturdy bra; the band was stiff but not too stiff. At a 29" ribcage, I set it on the loosest hook and that seemed perfect. The straps are nice and wide, which is something I don't see very often in my size range.
To sum up, I'm not sure what kind of person this bra is made for. There's a ton of padding at the bottom of the bra to give your breasts quite a bit of boost, but then the tops of the cups curve inwards a bit and seem to be cutting into the breast tissue on most everyone. This theoretical person would need to have a longer torso than I, and/or lower-set breasts. But if you want to try it, go up a cup volume, and consider going up a band size.
