For background, I have a 33" loose underbust, so I sometimes fit into a 32FF and sometimes in a 34F depending on the bra. I tried the Panache Envy in both sizes because it is recommended for a variety of bust types. The 34F was too big for me, but the 32FF fit pretty well.
The band on the Envy seems stretchier than other Panache bras - the 32 band easily stretches to 32.5" which makes it work better for me than more firm 32 bands. The gore tacks without digging into my skin like Panache bras often do. The wires feel a little wide for me, but they ... aren't uncomfortable. My breast tissue seems to fill out the cups - I'm not getting any obvious wrinkling or quadding and I like the overall shape the bra gives me. My only complaint is with the straps. They are a ltitle wide set for me and something about the material of the straps gives them a sharp edge that makes them feel like they are cutting in even though they are not too tight. The cups also dig into my armpit where the cup meets the strap. This is a common problem for me with full-coverage bras, so I could overlook it. However, I didn't keep this bra because I have others that fit better.
As I mentioned in the review of the 34F (see that review), this 32FF fits me a lot better than the 34F, so I would strongly consider sister sizing down if you often find yourself between sizes.
