Used to fit

I LOVE this bra, unfortunately it is a little too small for me in the cup. I'll be getting another Freya bra (not the Lyla, but the Patsy) in a 28GG soon and I'll see if that fits better. I own this in Amethyst in a 28G as well, and Noir in a 28FF, but none fit me perfect in the cups. I don't care though, this is really such a fantastic bra, I just don't scoop and swoop all the way and its fine. The quadboob isn't that noticeable anyways even if I do scoop and swoop all the way. I had to bend the wires in order to make them comfortable enough to wear though, otherwise the part of the wire under the bottom of my breasts would dig into my ribs, this is probably more because I have very curved ribs than because there is something wrong with the bra. Other things are that there is a single tiny wrinkle in the bottom of the cup, and the gore might be like two millimeters too wide, but they were so minor that I didn't bother to mark them as fit issues. The band fits perfectly, really tight.

edit: No longer too small for me in the cup, may be slightly too big. My measurements around my breasts (not breast perimeter, but circumference around my body) haven't really changed much at all but my breast perimeter has shrunk I don't know how one could change and not the other so its a little confusing. I was also certain that switching birth control would make them grow, not shrink, kind of bummed. The 28GG Patsy fit HORRIBLY. Way too big in the cup and the wires were way too wide, I regret not entering it into bratabase, really sorry about that, but I returned it the day after getting it without thinking because it was really such a bad fit I just wanted to get rid of it and buy something else. The 28FF fits me almost perfectly now, wires pretty darn close to where they should be and I don't get quadboob. No wrinkling in the cup either. If I don't adjust the cup frequently I still get a little but of armpit bulge though and for that reason I prefer the 28Gs. I don't think the armpit bulge is escaped breast tissue so I don't think it is because the cup is too small, I think its just that the cup is shorter. Its really not very bad, I just can't stand the look of having elastic cut into my armpit, even though I'm sure most people wouldn't notice. The 28Gs still have that tiny wrinkle in the bottom and I think the wires may have distorted slightly and are wider now which is unfortunate in some aspects but I wonder if that is allowing me to keep wearing the bra, I imagine if the wires were narrower and the cup wasn't being pulled as flat I might not fill out the top all the way. I got another Lyla in a 30FF because it was cheap but I cannot fill out the top of the cup at all, I'm guessing because the wires are not getting distorted. Some positives: the band is still comfortable on the loosest hooks =) It has been I think four months since I got it and it is holding up really well, I'm more worried about the underwires popping out of their casing than the band stretching out.
