I'll write a full review later. For now, I want to say that my average projection boobs find this molded cup bra to have surprising projection. The cups are mercifully low coverage for a UK bra. The wire width is average, comparable to that of my 65F Ewa Michalak 3D bras. The gore is on the low side for a plunge. Not all plunges, I've found, have what I consider to be plunge gores.
In the same Nordstrom visit, I tried the Chantelle Festivite Plunge Bra, whose gore and coverage strongly resembles the Passionata Brooklyn's. They're owned by the same company. Nordstrom only had my 32E UK sister ... size in Festivite. The 32E Chantelle Festivite on the tightest hooks had slight cutting in at the center gore area and wider wires than the 30F UK Brooklyn. I hope to do a direct 30F to 30F comparison someday. The Festivite has noticeably lower coverage than, say, C Chic Plunge.
The projection and coverage of Passionata Brooklyn in 30F in the Light Nude color resemble those of my 65F Ewa Michalak 3D bras, though Ewa's cups are more horizontal and Brooklyn's are more vertical. Brooklyn doesn't have any bra band parts that scratch me. The scratchiness of Ewa Michalak hook and eye sections is a pet peeve. Brooklyn is much lower coverage than Freya Deco, btw.
I would like to thank hourglassy.com for its Curve coverage, which made me aware of Passionata's molded T-shirt bra, Brooklyn. I saw the very plunge-y gore, discovered my local Nordstrom had a few, and got to try it on in person.
Beware retailers' sizing. The Nordstrom associate didn't understand US versus UK sizing. She tried to hand me a 30DDD, which is equivalent to UK 30E. She also didn't know this Nordstrom carries L'Agent or has some sexy high waist briefs. Nordstrom bra staff knowledge is hit-or-miss. A sales associate may learn from a Bratabaser on occasion!
