    My shape is soft, lower set, narrow and short rooted, even to FOB, with some centre fullness. I usually wear 30FF padded, so this is a sister size equivaalent to a 30F in volume. The band is obviously too long, but that can be tailored to a 29", which I like. The volume is a bit small for me, as I get some bubbling with a scoop and swoop, but because it's wide without underwires, and the band is looser, things settle in after a bit of wearing.

    This is a super comfortable padded bra. The material is like a soft washed cotton, and it just feels amazing on the skin. No rubbing, chaffing, cutting, or anything else. I've been after an unwired bra for a while, and I think I'll get a lot of wear out of this one because it's a great 'lounging' / 'errand' bra. The shape it creates is nice and round, and I think with a band alteration, it will also offer nice support.

    • Not ideal for us center-full wearers, but workable. Looks great, and I hope it remains comfortable for a long time :-)

    Even though Nordstrom didn't have a 30F or even 32E for me to try on, it turns out the 34DD on the tightest hooks fits well. The shape is great for a wireless bra. The Wacoal How Perfect bra provides less lift than my Ewa Michalak 3D underwired bras, of course, but I'm quite happy with the Wacoal's profile, which is rounded. It's fuller and more rounded below the nipple and less cakes-on-a-plate above the nipple than I get from my underwired bras. By comparison, my Natori Yogi wireless moulded bra's shape is uninspiring from the side, less rounded and less perky.

    From the front, the How Perfect kind ... of makes the bust look fuller, but not every bra has to make my upper body look slimmer. The cloud-like softness of the cups and the smoothness of the band make up for the maximizing shape. The texture of the entire bra is soft and comforting.

    I saw a 30DDD in this bra in the navy color at Nordstrom Rack a couple days ago. The band was so tight, I couldn't fasten it. I'm going to exchange this 34DD for a 32DDD from Love4Pollinators. I expect the 32 band will fit like a 30 band in most other bras.

    Projected, slightly narrow, omega shaped, short roots, center full, close set breasts...

    Describe the bra with one word: minimalistic. Simple, sleek, soft, supportive are appropriate, too.

    This is another bra for which I owe double thanks to learningaboutbras. Not only did she find this bra and recommend it, but also she exchanged her 34DD for my, previously owned, 32DDD. Thank you. Thank you, @learningaboutbras.!! Although my underbust measures 28", this 34DD is both supportive and comfortable. The additional band length prevents the cup collapse I experienced in the 32DDD. Size up in the band.

    When I need to feel more supported and less like I'm floating on a ... cloud, this is the bra I wear. In a stressful community meeting, this bra didn't move. Not once did I think about this bra. No escapees. No adjusting. No straps falling down.

    The fabric has a nap which first caused me alarm. However, after wearing it, I prefer this fabric because it gently holds fabric in place. Once positioned, it acts almost like lingerie tape. Helpful.

    This bra and Bali 3488 are staples in my brarobe. Again, thank you learningaboutbras!!

    EDIT: The shape under a fitted t-shirt, for me, is perfectly round. I'm thrilled this shape can be accomplished without wires :-) :-)
