Didn't fit

I just don't know what it is with this bra. When I got it, I was surprised that it was kinda decent fit. (I had no luck with Freya in the past) So I assumed they stepped up their game and improved bras in GG+ range. I have now worn this bra now a few times and it gets worse and worse.

So first few words on when it was decent: so wires are right in the middle or very sturdy and very flexible, average and supportive enough for large size. The cups are rather tall and roomy on top. The lace band at the edge of the cups is stretchy so they won't cut in.
The band is rather stretchy but did fit me well at first and felt true to size for a 32 band.

What has changed: recently the band felt just a bit loose and the bra felt less supportive. Keep in mind I only worn it like 5 times since I got it in January 2021. So I doubt it has already stretched out. The cups feel okay when I put it on. But after like 4-5 hours of wear the bra get more and more unspportive, there is strain on shoulder straps and the cup shape starts to look droppy. I don't understand this. I did not do anything --- not as if my boobs shrinked in few hours. So the top section kinda looks like it's too tall and not entierly filled which I cannot understan as I have very full on top boobs. Bras cut in on my boobs I don't get gaping!
So I wonder if the materials of this bra are just weak and wear out very quickly?
I don't really want to trash it here, keep try it for yourself, it's definitely better than Freyas GG+ offers in the past. Maybe it's just not suited to my shape??? At first I was so impressed and it felt good. Quality felt okay. That bra has deceived me big time.

This bra is not owned any more

    It's a pretty bra, but's not giving you the support as much as your others. Too bad...

    Wilderness1 yes it's kinda unsupportive. I try to figure out why, bc I'm not sure I need another size?

    Interesting because I’m FOB and I have the same issue with this bra, just a saggy look. I thought it was because the straps were too long or stretchy. I still haven’t figured it out

    margesimpson Interesting, so it's not a FOB or FOT issue so general issue with the bra? I wonder if the materials are too weak and stretch out over the day? Does it happen when you put it on or you notice it a few hours in? For me it's the later as I put it on it looks ok, not super uplifted but after few hours the top gets dragged down.
