Molded cups provide modesty and support.
The only style from Freya that can be worn with clothing...i.e. no twin torpedos here.
Cups fit pretty *true to size* and by that I mean their cup depth is in line with the size it is supposed to fit. I'm fuller all around but don't have a lot of projection or too much top fullness, gapping was never really an issue, but less fullness and you may have sizing problems with this style.
The elastic could be of a better quality considering the price because it stretches out pretty fast after a few wears. I wash with Borax and A&H detergent and everythin snaps back into place.
Foam in cups is a little rigid and ... heavy. About 3/16" in thickness, could be thinner.
Straps are set far apart, at least for me, but on someone else with very wide shoulders this shouldn't be a problem.
I bought this from HerRoom in late Winter/early Spring 2009, so this has gotten quite a lot of use. After the first couple of months owning it I had to restitch the eyes in the back closure. This was not super tight by any means. I had been running around outside (nothing too strenuous) and the stitching snapped. Because it's the nude color it will fit slightly larger than any other color, especially black. Brand new it was like this so it has nothing to do with use.
Other than quality issues the fit is great. I've been wearing these more often, they keep everything in place and look good under just about everything. Wish it came in a darker nude though, kind of too beige/pink for my color =/
