A great everyday essential. Envy is a cross between Andorra and Jasmine.
The cup construction is exactly the same as jasmine, with the deepest point being between the gore and the vertical seam.
It has andorras gore - which makes wires sit further apart then jasmine, and also end up a little wider under the arms.
It allows more volume in the bottom of the cup then both jasmine and andorra!!!
Better for those who need more immediate projection.
All this affects shape - profile is more round and lifted then andorras, but also slightly minimized like andorras.
The front is less centered then Jasmine, the boobs do go out of your frame ... but in a very natural, round and lifted manner.
It gives the perfect "purple shape" as described by Bras I hate and Love.
The stretch lace is different then the previous two, it is firmer and more substantial, giving better support from the top, but stil very forgiving. I also suspect this type of lace would hold up better through time.
Band is firm and stable, even more so then the Jasmine.
Materials are the comfiest by far compared to other two, love the houndstooth detail, I'd just like the lace to be less flowery, it would suit the pattern better.
Matching knickers are true to size and very comfy
Update: This bra is the best everyday bra I have ever owned. And even though I get better shape in cleos and jasmine, this bra is what I reach for most of the time. It works like a t-shirt bra for me.
My love affairs with bras can be short infatuation, summer flings, passionate love and hate... But this one... I'm ready to marry this one

This was my go-to daily bra when I was in this size range. It looked good under T-shirts, was comfortable, and matched my shape well (short roots, wide set, projected). My size is now nowhere near 30GG, so I passed this bra on. I kind of wish I had held on to it in case I get to that size range again for my next pregnancy.

The horizontal seam was too prominent for me to wear with a t-shirt. Straps and lace have a little stretch, but the cups don't give at all, so the support is very good. I really like the shape - it's very natural, not too round.

I'm really disappointed that this didn't fit. I'd been looking forward to it's arrival, but it seems small in the cup. Black bras often seem to. Bra is very pretty. Fabric is not irritating. Does not fit.
Backwards & Upsidedown: Feels fine, so the issue must be the cup size.
Wires: Wires correct width and height.
Gore: Gore lies mostly flat. Can fit fingertip under it. May be slightly too wide and tall, as it is squishing breast tissue, but this is likely caused by the spillage from the cups instead of a true gore issue.
Cups: Bottom wrinkling, top spilling. Cups too small. Just below inframammary fold.
Straps: Strap width is fine, ... placement is fine, adjustment is fine. Band appears to be parallel.
Comfort: If I run my finger under the bottom of the band in front it uncurls part of the fabric. If I do it in back, it leaves my skin hurting. Noticeable quad-boob. Shape is fine, but I feel squished. On for five minutes and has left achy marks. I haven't measured this yet, but I wonder if it was mislabeled.

This was the only bra I could wear throughout most of my pregnancy because of the stretch lace, it was a godsend. Thinking of having it converted to a nursing bra next time around. However, there is not enough immediate lower projection for me, sadly, so I always had some wrinkling at the bottom and some digging wires. Also, it might just be me, but I don't really like when there's lacy parts at the bottom of the band/wire, because that always ends up rolling under and irritating my skin.

Just received this bra today. Will update with my opinions.

So this bra really holds my tissue close to the chest: firm support but very 'compact'.
Envy is actually my 'minimizer' bra: works great on days when I don't want my boobs to show too much. Also comes in handy under clothes that are slightly too tight around the boobs, and wouldn't fit with a moulded bra.
I'm still a bit confused by the side slings though. They shape my boobs a bit strangely.

I had very high hopes for this bra, but the shape is off for me--the cups are just a little bit too narrow at the lower outside edge of my breasts, cutting in. Combined with a fairly firm band, this is quite painful after a couple hours!
But I don't think this is the bra's fault, just a shape mismatch for me. It is otherwise a good quality bra and gives a nice round shape. The straps are nice, too--they have a soft felt lining against your skin.
