Bras » Freya » Lauren Padded Half Cup Bra (4821)




Freya has three "families" of padded halfcups.

The first is the "Summer" range which is characterised by two vertical seams only. So far, all longline bras by Freya belong into this category too.

The second is the "Lauren" range which is characterised by two vertical seams and a third horizontal seam across the upper part of the cup.

The third family is those moulded, seamless bras that are based upon the Deco Halfcup.

Sizes:
  • 30 D - G
  • 32 B - G
  • 34 B - G
  • 36 B - G
  • 38 B - G

    I liked the design of this half cup, and it seemed more elegant and versatile than the frantic patterns of most Freya bras. I think it fits decently, but it has an inferior shape to most other Freya half cups I've tried.

    Pros:
    It's a half cup in black that doesn't poke much underneath tops
    Pinstripe pattern
    Nice materials
    Comfortable
    Supportive

    Cons:
    Fuller coverage than normal Freya half cup - gapes sometimes especially if I slouch
    Less great shape than some half cups I've tried
    The straps are too large for the rings connecting the straps to the band - might wear out early because of that

    I purchased this bra because I LOVE the Freya Totally Tartan padded half cup bra and I wanted something not so "colorful." So I purchased the white version of the Lauren padded half cup. It provides great, up-front and center lift just like the Tartan, but I have 2 general issues with this bra. First, I can't wear this bra with thin or close-fitting clothes because the vertical seams show. Second, this bra seems to have less depth/volume than my Totally Tartan, even though both are the same size. I have washed this bra (or I should say, my husband did) with the rest of our whites in warm water. So, it may have shrank? Regardless, I get some quadraboob in this one and tend to migrate toward the center. That does not happen in my Totally ... Tartan padded half cup. In general though, I love the lift that a Freya padded half cup provides. The band is typical Freya- "generous". I could use this bra in a 30GG or 30H, but alas it does not come in either of these sizes.

    30G

    Didn't fit

    Very happy to say fit is identical to Monet Padded Half Cup: http://bra.pe/SN0/.

    Ordered 30G as there are no 28GG and started on 2nd hook just like my Deco bras.

    Details are exquisite. Striped material adds sophistication to the simple all-white design and the bows are an extra classy touch. ;) Straps are fully adjustable and have ribbon details. There is a subtle glimmer to the nylon fabric. Not your average "white bra" for sure!

    Measured unstretched before wearing.
    Purchased late-September 2011 from ASOS.

    Well this bra didn't work out for me. I have too much upper fullness and get quadboob. This bra may still work for people in the shallow spectrum but who are more full on bottom. It's an attractive bra, feminine without a lot of lace and frills.

    I ordered this bra online and it's a much better looking bra that I thought it would be!
    There is narrow lace along the straps and the top of the cups; not enough to be visible under clothing, but it makes the bra look pretty in a subtle way.
    It fits pretty much the same as all of the Freya padded half cups I own do. It's very comfortable and gives a good shape.

    I really like this bra. It's the first bra I've owned that doesn't have parts digging in uncomfortably anywhere. Even after wearing the bra for 8+ hours at work, I still cannot feel the underwires digging in anywhere, which makes it a very comfortable bra.

    The only problem is, the bra does have a slight tendency to shift down a bit so the underwires aren't sitting at the base of my breast, but it doesn't move much and the comfort isn't lessened much by this movement.

    Works well as a t-shirt bra. Very comfortable and minimal padding. The band seems to run a bit large.

    This bra doesn't fit me at all - I think I'd need to go down a band size and up maybe two cup sizes in order to get a perfect fit.
    Otherwise, a very nice bra, details on the cups are nice and subtle, and would make a perfect every day bra.
