First of all, this bra is gorgeous. Not only is the ethereal flower print beautiful, but it has a bit of a blurred watercolor effect which makes it seem almost hand-painted. The band is edged with tiny delicate lace (which the hooks can catch on, so be careful) that is small enough to not stick out strangely as Freya band trims tend to do sometimes. The lace at the top of the cup has a line of non-elastic plastic at the top to keep it strong. The band is nice and snug (whoo) and the straps appear to be fully adjustable. Both the gore and wings are about ... average height, which is actually a bit lower than I'd like. The wires are just about perfect!
The fit of the cups is kind of weird. It definitely feels like they're trying very hard to bring my sideboob to the front, except I actually don't have much sideboob in the first place so it's kind of wrinkly and sad there, and leaves my tail of Spence just hangin out. A side effect of this is that on the sides near the armpit, there is extra cup-edge elastic folding up, which is really bizarre to me. There also isn't that much immediate projection - this bra saves all the projection for up top, where I have basically no tissue. It seems as if the apex is really high, a full inch away from my nipple. There's also a lot of gaping in the center, even though I'm fairly close-set and have some inner fullness. Weirdest of all, The top lace section gaps considerably in the center, even when adjacent areas are filled out. Even so, the rest of the lace lines up with my tallish roots well! they sit happily on them without quadding or gaping. I'm guessing that this is a product of the FoT nature of this bra?
