My shape: teardrop set at average height, with super tall and super wide roots that give me all the shallow-boob fitting problems but with more projection, very close-set tissue in the middle, and firm tissue that fights back when squished or pushed out of shape
I got this bra in an exchange two days ago. It's very cute, the Hibiscus pink is lovely and bubble-gum-y, and the sheer lace is very sweet! I tend not to like the look of sheer top panels on cups aesthetically, but the construction of the cup here makes it look sort of like another layer underneath and makes it much nicer.
The cups are ... weird on this one, but I think all the weirdness is due to A) too big (by a size or two), and B) the wires are too steeply curved but too wide! I've never had cups that were really too wide for me before. NEVER. My roots reach almost to my shoulder blades, but the curve is shallow and flattened, like the Nike symbol; the very round curve of the wire here means that, even though there's empty fabric beneath the root, the two lines cross each other and the wires end up cutting off the tail of my root. If I size down, it will help fill the empty fabric in the cup, and if it's like most other bras [whose wires are simply too narrow for me, no matter what shape] I won't notice them resting on my roots, but it will definitely put the wires on top of breast tissue.
Also not helping is the placement of the straps, and the fact that the sides of the cup are too high - not the wings, but the cups. Holy armpits, batman! Half the issues with the top of the cup might just be that! The band is perfectly tight, though, so I don't think I could size down without an extender, and even then the adjustment might not be enough.
I do think that, at the end of the day, it might end up being too shallow for me. Even though the cups have a lot of empty fabric wrinkling and making other fit issues hard to see, after studying the photos I can tell that the wires really want to sit farther down my ribcage than they should be, even though the band is pretty snug.
Pro Tip: This bra probably has the itchiest band I have ever tried on. I hope it'll go away with a wash or two, but if nothing else, that demon tag would have to go! The elastic edging the band seems to have a unique stitch on it, which may be the culprit, or maybe it's just that the fabric and I don't get along, but whatever it is, we are not friends. The cups are fine, but watch out for your poor back!
If I find a spectacular deal on a 28F or 28FF, I will give it a shot, but otherwise I don't think the Liliana is worth investing the effort in troubleshooting when there are so many other brands and models out there that will probably work better for me.
