    Used to fit

    The only bad thing about this bra is that the composition of the cup as far as the outer stitching makes it a bit difficult to wear with anything tight fitting.
    It is comfortable, fits, has a slight push-up effect on my bottom heavy breasts, and is cute as a button.

    It has stretched over time, first in the straps and, depressingly, now so far in the band that it no longer fits. If I were to buy it again, I'd go for size 30F.

    I've had this bra for about a month now and I think it's time for my first review! This was my first correct-ish sized bra, which I picked up at a Nordstrom Rack. Selection there was slim, so this bra isn't what I would have picked otherwise, but out of all the ones I tried, it fit the best.

    The bra is comfy, and the fabric is nice. I really like the little bit of lace on the edges of the cups, because it's sweet and doesn't show through my shirts at all. The cute green color with the white polka dots has also grown on me quite ... a bit even though green is not a color I wear often. It gives me a very round shape, which I like. Occasionally I think it almost looks a bit squarish, but under clothes it looks great.

    As far as size, I am now, a month later, pretty sure that I would have a better fit with a smaller band and maybe even a larger cup. At the time of purchase, I had some pretty bad sunburn on my back, so I felt the bands of all my bras quite acutely, and since this one was slightly tighter than what I was used to, I felt it the most! Now, however, after having acquired a Panache Andorra in the same size, I see what all the bloggers mean when they say that Freya bands run loose. I've started wearing the Patsy on the tightest hook, because it rides up less and feels better than way.

    Another thing I'd like to mention is that the straps, within a few wears, became scrunched/folded up at the front, near where they attach to the cup. I think this is due to the location, right where my armpit would pinch over it when I move my arms forward. This hasn't affected the comfort or look of the bra.

    To sum up, this bra is a hit with me. Even though the band could be tighter, I feel that it was a great introduction to what is close to my real size.

    About me: 30FF/G but can comfortably wear 32F/FF. Usually, 30G is my go to. Very projected and close set with short, narrow roots and even fullness.

    This bra is too shallow and the cups are way too wide for me, so it looked terrible and provided almost no support. It is a pretty bra, so I wish that it fit.

    This bra was too shallow and wide for me, to the point where I have tavern cleavage. I don't plan on keeping this.

    This is one of my favorite bras. The fit isn't perfect but the comfort makes up for the small shape mismatch.

    The good: Very comfortable! I typically prefer 34 bands but since the band in the Patsy is stretchy, a 32 fits nicely. This bra gives me a slight east/west appearance from the front which I actually like (I am short waisted; this east/west appearance fools the eye into thinking I have a more hourglass shape).

    Needs Improvement: The cups on this bra are slightly too shallow for me so the shape from the side isn't as round as I'd like. The seams will show through any smooth-fabric top as will the lace upper edge.

    Overall, I am very pleased with this one! I reach for it often and would love for Freya to come out with more colors (and for the love of pete, smooth down those seams)!

    The top of the cups wrinkle a little bit. The material is a little scratchy. I got this secondhand so I will probably keep it. It looks fine under the right dress. The seams up the front do show in a tight tshirt. It doesn't create sexy cleavage and the cups are pretty high up on my boobs.

    I really like the 34E in this bra but the band is too loose on me. So I purchased band down and cup up based on better measurements. The 32FF is a monster. There's so much fabric. I can't wear it under almost anything in the summer because it peeks out from everything. The straps are huge, the wings are huge, the cups are like full coverage and gore comes up as high as the neckline in most of my clothes. It's very matronly aside from the print.

    I keep wanting to wear it because my 34E is like belt loose at this point, but I hate it every time I put it on. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    Fits perfectly! The gore sits lower than my @Panache Jasmine and I find it to be even more comfortable. I do have close set breasts, so the gore does float slightly, but it is very slight and not uncomfortable or even really noticeable. The underwires are a perfect fit for my wide root breasts and narrow ribcage. I have average to full projection and full bottom breasts, they fit comfortably in the cups. Although it says padded in the description, it's more like a lined cup. There is no padding. It does however provide a beautiful lift that looks great under lower cut tops without pushing my breasts up under my chin. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The straps are slightly padded and do not dig in or leave dents on my shoulders. It's also very comfortable to wear laying in bed to read, or for long periods of time. I love love this bra!

    FYI: i bought this as a sizing check and intend to return it, so i haven't been able to wear it for more than a few minutes to assess fit. i cant speak to how this would wear during the day, when many fit issues usually crop up because im moving around more.

    patsy has to be made of some of the most uncomfortable fabric *ever*. even if it fit perfectly, i would never keep it. its so scratchy! its some sort of a weird tulle overlay. it's especially bothersome on the straps. the seam of the fabric overlay sits right in the middle of the inside of strap ... against the skin, and feels like its going to rub me raw even though i'm only putting it on long enough to review it. they are fully adjustable though, so that's a plus. its a shame, because the peacock colorway is very pretty. this fuchsia one doesn't do anything for me.

    i have definite overspill on my left side. once i push the wires from the gore into the armpit (i do on most bras to get more side coverage and a lower gore) it becomes even more obvious, and starts spilling on my shallower right side as well. the band feels like i could comfortably wear it on the middle or first, even the last hook, but its made of that annoying thing mesh with elastic bordering on the top and bottom so any setting makes my fleshier back look not so good minus. i would likely want a 32 band with an extender so i could get more wear out of it, because 34 bands always seem too loose when new.

    the straps feel too wide set in this, and get caught in my underarm. it is both uncomfortable while still and leads to some awkward bra shifting as my underarms push the cups forward when in motion. the wires good width wise, and are actually pretty much the exact same width as the 34F Thimble Cottage bra i got in the same order. they hardly feel like different sizes, aside from the straps being wider set in Patsy and the very slightly smaller amount of overspill i got in the Thimble Cottage.

    if i were to stay with the Pasty cut, i would recommended the Thimble Cottage bra because the fabric and straps are so much improved. i would probably take this cut in something more like a 32G or 34FF, depending on how the fabric choice affects the band tension.

    I wasn't sure I would like this bra when I first went to try it on. The fabric on the outside of the bra is a tightly woven mesh, and I was certain that detail, combined with the lace would be a recipe for disaster. But upon trying it on I found it to be incredibly comfortable, and the best fit for my breasts out of all of the bra I'd tried on that day. It has quickly become my favorite bra in my arsenal, and has continued to be comfortable and supportive through all-day wear.

    The design is feminine, and fun without being excessive. The pink is incredibly ... subtle, and meshes well with the design. Unlike the usual stark black and white I normally find in polka-dotted anything, the muted pink makes this bra much less obvious under a t-shirt than it could be otherwise. The stitching on the front, and lace detail WILL show through shirts made of thin material though, so it is probably best worn with tops that aren't as tight against the body, or that have a pattern that will camouflage the impressions.

    The padding is minimal, just enough to keep erect nipples from being obvious through a shirt, without adding bulk to your breasts. It provides enough coverage for me to keep mine from showing through even in thin shirts, but my nipples are on the smaller side, so those with more prominent nipples may or may not have issues with it.

    Overall, I am VERY happy with this bra.
