  1. This is a bra which I waffled back n forth on getting. I finally took the chance because well I finally realised that I couldn't get on with the bras I had because I just had too much quad boob. I also finally gave in because this was a fashion colour and it was either get it now or be left with regrets as I search with failure especially since I buy sets, bra and knickers. If I can't find a matching bottom I won't buy the bra.

    I'm so glad I got this bra! It is far prettier in person; pictures do not do the pattern justice. The ... band is sized in traditional Freya style and so are the cups. However, these cups do something different I haven't run across in a Freya bra before. This really gets the boobs up and out! I've read that some say the cups seem to run a bit big in this bra but I don't think so because the cup depth is running about standard in comparison to the Lyla/Arabella. These cups do have far more projection in them though. These cups really pull the side boob in and puts it front n centre. If you don't have the projection and/or boobs squishy enough to be positioned that way I can see how the cups would appear to run large.

    Also the profile may not be widely liked. While I never found the Arabella to be pointy despite others claiming it was I can completely understand if others said this about this bra. Now I have pointy boobs to begin with so basically this bra creates my natural profile but pulled up and in front where they should be. In the end I don't mind the "pointedness" in fact I like it! It's the "my boobs but better" bra. ;D It still doesn't even come close to old skool bullet bra pointedness but it is by far not round in any way shape or form.

    Also the fabric on these cups is quite stiff especially brand new. It calms down after a couple of washes but I still needed to wear the bra a few times for lengthy periods for the cups to really calm down and mould to me.

    Gorgeous style. Normally I don't allow myself to buy let alone even try soft cup Freya's anymore because I abhor the shape they give me (which I lovingly deem as 'bullet boobs') although this offering seemed like it may be a redeemer for the brand. The style instantly appealed to me with the green, lilac and tiny magenta floral topped with lime lace and bow accents. The full on solid fabric cups and their small edging of lace said to me, "Hey, maybe this particular bra is a bit more similar to this ... season's Cleo line so maybe give it a try". I'm pleased to say I'm a big fan of the solid cup structure with all its details.

    As for sizing I've read many, many reviews before buying this bra and they were allover the place: "it's so big, size down", "I had to go up in the band", "definitely far too big in the cup", etc. My only conclusion is that perhaps many of these women have not bought a Freya bra or even a new bra in the past six-months or so because for me it runs 100% TTS for Freya. They may be used to their now stretched-out bras in their what-could-be-previous-size and instead of getting re-measured, they bought what they thought they were! This means the band is definitely going to be stretchy, and now I really want to size down to a 28 just because I know that if I plan to wear it A LOT it will definitely wear out pretty quick. Also, the cups are just fine and I really should be up one from this FF and in a G (even though it was unavailable at the time I ordered).

    However, I do understand that since I am not very compatible with these styles that many women who ARE and therefor are fuller on bottom may actually *want* to size down one cup because as some reviews have said, the top of the cup may have a bit extra room. Too bad for me it doesn't because I'm in an improper size. I'm hoping to exchange this for a 28GG if I can find it and further update to make a good comparison and final call on this super pretty SS12 style.

    Key points to this fit: underwires are wide enough on sides yet still low because the side wings are too, there isn't so much "quad boob" because of cups cutting-in but rather because the cup size is knowingly too small (can't wait to try a larger cup to compare), band is usual "Freya long" and as always stretchy.

    Recommend: if you're a typical soft cup Freya fan and have fuller on bottom breasts, try either your normal size or same band, down just one cup. If you are unsure of your Freya-fan status or have fuller on top/all around fullness (or also, smooshy boobs that tend to fill out on bottom or on top): try your same band and cup and maybe also one cup size up as well.

    Measured immediately before wearing.
    Purchased & Returned late-July 2012.

    This bra is great for narrow projected breasts unfortunately it's too small for me. Like all freya bras it has a stretchy band so not great for sub 28 bands

    I'm a bit too big for this. The wires are too short on the sides I don't like how the channels are too big for the wires. It's a comfortable bra but I need to have longer wires.

    I am FOO and FoT. Shape mismatch for my boobs. I guess it fits best for FoI and FoB.

    I am not quite full enough on the top to fill the bra out, however, it fits wonderfully everywhere else. Was comfortable wearing while and work and constantly changing position, it did not shift on me at all.

    Such a good, subtle colour combination on this one. The print itself however is a bit meh. I totally do not fill the cups, despite having the bra on rotation as one I regularly wear (strictly only under clothes where severe cup wrinkle will not show...). It is very pretty, and supportive, but it seems to me that I'm just not the right shape for the cup - the top of which fits flush to my skin, very little gaping at all, and the band nice and snug. Because of the excellent overall fit (it gently lifts in a way that other Freya balconettes don't) I had actually thought the wrinkle I was getting in the cups (really quite a lot of it compared to other, similar Freya styles I own) was some kind of ruched design..!
