Whoa! This bra is TIGHT! I almost considered a 32 band. So I measure 27 and 33/34. I am a 28-band comfortably (I like them tight) and something like an E or F depending on the brand. I got a 30E but if they'd had a 30F I probably would have fit better (no quadboob) and it would have had more room for my breast tissue in the middle. I have very wide, round breasts with no space at all in the middle, so I am forced to wear plunge bras. I was happy to find that this bra has a very tiny gore and does not stab ... me at all. The cups are padded, spongy and have the slightest amount of push-up padding at the bottom and about halfway up the cup, even in the E cup I purchased, which is nice except I needed a bigger cup size to avoid quadboobing but it was not available. So this bra could have been a t-shirt type bra for me but because of the quadboobing it is now a "sexy bra." But honestly, I quadboob most of the time just because of how my tissue is set in the center and because I must wear plunges. So not everyone will have that issue.
I definitely recommend at least going a cup and band size up. I was expecting to fit in the 30dd because that's my usual sister size but NOPE! The underwire is kind of pokey at first but if you get the bra on and bend it to the curve of your ribs, you'll be fine.
I am able to wear it on the loosest hook, and the loosest on the 32 band wasn't loose either. However, the straps are not fully adjustable and that is what made me not choose the 32-band. The straps only adjust halfway and I have to start with them fully tightened. The front of the straps is cool looking, though, and the back can be criss-crossed for a racerback style. The lace laying over the cup is very pretty and the 20 or so bras I was browsing all looked like their lace was in good condition. The black version of this bra fit me the same and also looked to be of good quality.
