    I like this bra, but the gore is definitely too high for me! However, the wires and band are soft such as you would expect from a Freya bra.

    My shape is: full on top, full of centre, close-set, very narrow and projected, tall roots, pendulous, slightly splayed.

    This bra would fit super great if it was not for the gore! It sits on my breast tissue, which causes irritation, discomfort and instability of the wires. The top of the cups works nicely to accommodate my full on top + tall roots, but it can't handle my centre-fullness and it's not quite projected enough for me. I quad near the ... gore. The underwires tend to ride down because of the lack of projection and the non-tacking gore and I find myself nearly constantly pulling them back into my IMF. However the wire width is nearly perfect for me and this is what I like the most about this bra. On days where I spend most of my time standing, it's quite comfy and doesn't irritate me much, but regularly sitting down and standing up makes the underwires move around too much. I don't think I could handle the band to be much tighter so sizing down to 28FF doesn't seem like it would be a good idea.

    It gives a very round shape but not extremely lifted, though I do find it very flattering under tightly fitted tops/dresses. The material is quite soft overall, especially the stretch top panel, but I find the mesh to be a bit rough on my skin. The band also rolls on itself under the cups, I don't know if this is due to or aggravated by my fitting issues, but it bothers me.

    • I found I could size down in the cup in this bra due to the stetchiness of the fabric which really helped the gore height, cup width, and support in general as the fabric was taut rather than floppy. I wonder if you could do the same?

    • cupandahalf Absolutely not, unfortunately. I tried the 30E in store before buying the 30F online, and 30E was obviously much too small. Since I have tall roots and FoT breasts, the shape of the cups is ideal for me. I really think the instability is due to the fact that the gore doesn't tack, it lacks projection so my breasts want to push the underwires down, and it's still a smidge too wide for me.

    • Bummer! :(

    The first time I tried Olivia - in the upcoming cobalt colorway - I knew I had to own one...so I immediately grab a 30F deep jade!
    However, I'm experiencing some issues with the stretch of the bottom of the right cup, if anyone has any tips to solve this, I'm all ears!

    Without further go, here's the full review: http://www.myfashioninsiderblog.com/2016/04/lingerie-panache-olivia-30f-review.html

      Hi, i am such a huge fan of balconnet bras, these styles suit my shape the best. This bra is such a nice color and so flattering. It really gives a wonderful shape to the breasts, very natural.
      This bra really looks to fit you perfectly and looks lovely on you. I dont think you could do any better, Maybe your right breast is a little smaller than your left. I know mine are slightly different in size. The wrinkling in the cup is hardly noticeable. Am so happy for you finding such a great bra that fits and is comfy.

      I love the colour, it reminds me of the night sky! The shape and style really suits you so I wouldn't worry aboutvthe wrinkling, it's not much and it's barely noticeable
