I only tried on the Prima Donna Divine in a local lingerie shop. I didn't buy it because the gore is much too high for comfort. However, its profile reminded me of my Cleo Marcie super round shape! The tag said it was 30F. I'll go back to check it's equivalent to Bratabase's 65F. Perhaps I'll get to take more measurements. The 9" cup depth was the main thing I wanted people to know about this size.
Because the cup material is a semi-sheer floral weave, it could've worked as a nude for me despite the non-flesh pink color. The color resembles the pale pink Bratabase uses. The only ... seams were two darts, one vertical starting from the underwire, and the other horizontally from the gore. With the straps shortened all the way, the slightly bigger breast achieved a perfect Cleo roundness, without Marcie's slight in-cup bulging. The smaller breast experienced slight wrinkling above the wire and at the cup's upper edge, but I'm pretty sure I could've smoothed those out if I'd forced the adjuster over the embroidered front part of the strap. I may try this if I go back to the store.
I also wanted to praise Charmelle 28 in Palo Alto, California, for having a 30F in stock. They have few 30 bands in what I consider the serious bra brands. If I didn't find non-plunge gores so painful, I'd buy this in a second. I'd love a comfy, easy-to-pack sheer bra in a nude-for-me that obscures my nipples.
I'll update this review if I try this bra on again.
