How exciting! Hopefully this helps out some of you!

I couldn't find a 30A to try out (which I know is not my size but I would be able to compare it with my experience with 32A and my true size) to let you know how they fit but there were tons of 30B's and 30C's for those who are needing that size!

Yay!

La Senza is such a great brand! :]
For anyone checking this thread, I would say that some of their bras run small too! Definitely worth checking out if you are visiting Canada!!

I am a 32A but I am SMALLER than Victoria's Secret or Calvin Klein, even Xhilaration (a junior's brand at Target) but La Senza bras fit me wonderfully!!

*Hyperventilates* This is so EXCITING! I found a couple 30A's in the Perfectly Me category (The Perfectly Me lace bras with removable padding ALREADY run small btw - I'm a 30A/28B and I own six or seven of the lace Perfectly Me's in 32A because they're the best-fitting non-TLBC bras I've ever found. The 32A's of the Perfectly Me on the smallest hook fit a lot like TLBC Lucia in 30A, with just the tiniest of cup gap).

I found it easier to search for 30A's in the search bar, since it doesn't look like they're being offered for all categories of bra:

(Only Perfectly Me and Hello Sugar right now)

I just sent an email to La Senza thanking them for the 30-bands :D

Thank you guys (bluevalentine, theotherpocket, lalaalove) for joining the conversation and providing the additonal info! I know that before I officially joined this forum, the random tidbits of info like that which people were writing was a goldmine of info re: sizing tips across brands, etc., especially for shopping online!

And I share in your excitement!!!

Update: I got my hands on a 30A to try on at a La Senza store today and unfortunately I have to report that it is too big for a 22" underbust for everyone's reference! I love La Senza still though and plan to send them a thank you as per lalaalove's lead!

Warmest wishes, all!

The 30 band sizes online are for test purposes only. Everyone, PLEASE email La Senza and tell them what you think!

Also, they are not at every store to try on.

Update:

I stopped by the Eaton Centre today to check out some bras. Another SA confirmed that the 30-bands were a test, but that they have been "very successful", and she doesn't see them discontinuing the size. At the Eaton Centre location, 30-bands are available both to try on in the back, and also for purchase. Currently, 30-bands are available in 3 styles: the lace Perfectly Me, a double pushup, and a convertible double pushup.

The Perfectly Me fit me pretty well in terms of lift, cup, ect. The cup of the 30A is noticeably smaller than the cup of a 32A. The band fits true to size (similar to the 30-band on TLBC Sasha), which means that although it's a new bra, I'd have to wear this on the tightest hook. I walked away with 2 of these.

Both double pushups from the Hello Sugar line had a tighter band compared to the Perfectly Me - tighter than a 30 band in TLBC Sasha, but not as tight as a 28 Sasha. They both gaped a little on me at the cup, and suddenly going up 2 cup sizes was... Strange, especially on my small frame. It just looked silly, but still a much better fit than Aerie's smallest double pushup size, which is a 33AA and looks like a bra strapped to a plank.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with the 30-bands. The Perfectly Me's came in a pretty good selection of colours. All 30A's fit true to size, even if the double push ups looked silly on me. I'm looking forward to seeing more 30-bands from La Senza in the future - although the fit isn't perfect (I'm still on the tightest hook), they are a very cute and affordable alternative to specialty stores.

Sounds great, but my issue with La Senza is that their re-branding makes the stores look like clubs. This might appeal to someone who is, say, between 17 and 25, but not necessarily someone over 30. I can't walk in there without getting a headache!
