I have shallow breasts with a wide root and usually have trouble filling out Freyas (especially at the tops of the cups) as the cups generally seem to be narrower and to project more in the front. I was surprised when I tried this on and found it to fit me perfectly. It has shallow cups and the wire is long enough that I don't feel like my breasts are escaping out the sides. The fit actually reminds me so much of my Cleos that I was surprised when I got this home and realized it was a Freya. So if you like @Cleo Juna and @Cleo Lucy, then you'll probably like Flourish.
The band is very stretchy and super comfortable. I actually had to start wearing it on the second set of hooks, but the wider band still makes me feel quite secure and supported.
The material is soft and I love the thin amount of padding. I hate cookies and lots of padding since they force an odd, fake shape under shirts. But I have pretty 'active' nipples and prefer a wee bit of padding for modesty.
Aesthetically speaking, the bra is gorgeous. It looks great under clothes, but it's so pretty that (if you're feeling a bit bold), it also looks cute peeking out slightly from low-cut tops.
The only issue is that if you have a bit of a belly and a tendency to slouch, you might have to adjust the lacy bits of the band as they can roll up. But even then, the bra doesn't feel uncomfortable. Overall, highly recommended!
