    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.

    The cup width is too narrow for my breasts, and the cup size is too small, especially if I use the removable pads. Without the pads it's passable, but not ideal.

    The TLBC Nicole in 28C has a band that runs either true to size or slightly large/stretchy. The cups have more volume and projection than than the Lucia in 30C. The Lucia fits well for shallow and wide-set breasts. If the Lucia doesn't work for you, the Nicole might work if your breasts are more protruded. The cups have too much volume for me and gap quite a bit, but my ideal size is between 26D/DD. Also the wires are more narrow than the Lucia in 30C and actually cut into my side breast tissue.

    You can tell the Nicole is larger than The Little Bra Company's Lucia in cup and band. Band fits as recommended. Feels like the bra wraps your chest like a tight blanket. Not ready yet to say it’s comfortable because the band is still restrictive. Photos shown with and without insertable pads. My breast do not fully fill the cups, though I worry a 28B or 30B would result in quad boobs. Bra doesn't fit properly without pads.
