    Fits

    My shape: self-supporting teardrop with super wide and tall roots, shallow on top and max projected underneath, with lots of side boob and close-set center tissue that is firm and fights back when squished.

    This review is for the pink colorway which I purchased gently used from another user in February.

    It's basically like Fauve made a 28 band for everyday wear! This is one of my go-to bras now and I've worn it dozens of times in the last few months. The pink and grey combo is so pretty. My chief complaint is that the elastic inside the band (only the lower piece, and only its upper edge) has ... started to curl, but because there's nowhere for it to go, it goes in to... me. It pokes and chafes pretty bad some days, so I think I'm going to try and stitch it down. I don't know if this is typical, because I haven't had any other Patsys that fit, and I haven't had very many Freyas at all (Fauve doesn't count!). Otherwise, I love it.

    Cups:
    They are lovely. Just super comfy, and give me a great round shape. If they aren't quite projected enough at the base, it's not enough for the bra to fight with my breasts and ride down. Aside from the Fauves, this is the only bra I own that has enough projection for me! Half-cups 4 Lyfe. It does gap on top a little sometimes when I slouch, but I suspect that's because of how far apart the straps are, and let's face it, Freya seems to think that large cup = large ribcage, so there's really no escaping that. These are better than most I've tried, though, so that's nice!

    There are some wrinkles at the first vertical cup seam, and by the inner wire, so I guess there is a little more projection there than I need, so that's cool. None of the wrinkles show through my clothes, though, so I didn't even notice them until I looked at the photos. It might be an issue for a super slinky top, but otherwise, I doubt it.

    Wires:
    Wide enough, long enough, tall enough, shallow enough... This is starting to sound like a Rolling Stones song. They are almost shallow enough to follow my root curve exactly, which means the Patsy is in first place so far.

    Bridge:
    Great! If I laze around in strange positions for a long time, the wires start to poke a bit because they are *technically* sitting on my center tissue, but there's also like a 1/2" of space in the wire channels, so I might just tack them to the outside. When I push them out, they mostly stay on their own anyway. You can see the difference in the photos.

    Band:
    Tight enough. Curiously, though it doesn't move, and I don't feel the need to adjust it almost ever, it has a slight upward curve in the back, and when I shrug I do feel it shift, but it's still snug, supportive, and the rest of the bra doesn't move. Maybe this is why Figleaves models always look like they're wearing the wrong size Freya band?

    I wish there were 3 hooks instead of 2, but the wings are otherwise tall enough that I don't ever miss it.

    Straps:
    Fully adjustable, cushiony, soft, and no complaints from me. I like how wide they are.

    So basically this is my favorite bra right now, minus that strange problem with the elastic. A+, Need more.

    Used to fit

    This pretty black halfcup balcony bra is only lightly padded an makes a very round and uplifted shape, including some notable cleavage. I specially appreciate the little details like the lace flower application on the center gore bow and the little bows on the straps. The fabric covered straps are considerably broad and not very stretchy but fully adjustable.

    As Freya bands are said to run looser than other UK brands I decided to order this bra both in the 28'' and 30'' Band which proved to be the right decision. If you are between bands I probably would go for the smaller band.

    Personally I don't like the fabric covering the straps and cup outside very much. It's not as smooth as I would like underclothes to be. The padding on the contrary is very soft. All in all it's a reasonably comfortable and nice looking bra. Nevertheless this will definitely not become my favourite everyday bra.

    Didn't fit

    Definitely a weird fit. There was quadding at the center/front of the cup, nearest the gore, but gaping of the cup towards the top (near the straps). The wires were wide enough/ wings were tall enough to contain my wider roots. Overall, a shape problem with the cup itself, but the wires seemed more on point. The ballet pink was pretty and cute, but not for me.
