To start, I'm in the process of resizing and refitting a correct size. I used to be a 32A and am debating between 28D/30C and 28C/30B. The following bra is a 28C which I have concluded is just about right except just a tad cup too small. If this bra came in a 28D it would work perfectly.
I bought this particular style because I was in between choosing a 28/30 band size and the description of this bra said the band was "stretchier" than other TLBC models so I should consider choosing my actual bra size. They only go up to C cups so I decided to try ... the 28C, assuming the 30C would be too big in the band.
The band fits extremely well and I'm happy to say I can fit it on any of the hooks, however the band is very STRETCHY so that I can fit a hand but it doesn't seem to ride up at all. The color is a little darker (medium mauve) than is shown on the website.
I tried the Yvonne model, in which the cups were WAY too small (see other review I have), but because I was in between cups and bands, the way the lace on these cups are structured, I think I am just able to get away with wearing this size without spillage or quad-boob over the top after the scoop & swoop. These cups seem to be a little deeper than the Yvonne 28C.
If these came in a 28D I would be ecstatic. I think the 30C's band might be too big if I try it given the stretchiness of this 28 band already.
This bra is absolutely cute! Unfortunately I can't wear any thin smooth t's or tank tops given the textured lace and bow details peeking outside of some of my inch-strap tanks...great for a shoulder-covering dress with lots of structure.
