  1. 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

    Oh, bratabase, it does TOO fit. It's just a little too wide. Lighten up :P

    Love love love all the Lauren clones, so I wanted to try the original. The band on the 32 is pretty perfect--my 34 Daydreamer is too loose, but my 32 Cottage too tight--but I wish the straps were as soft as they are on the variations. Lauren's not made out of the nice soft cotton that the others are, which is a shame. Still, mega-comfortable bra, fits me perfectly.

    Oh how I wish this bra was closer to the right fit. It works nicely under most of my t-shirts (excepting the lighter-colored ones, since it's white), and the band and straps and cup are all comfortable. My biggest complaint, as before, was that the underwire digs either under the armpit or at the sternum because the wire itself is 0.5" shorter than the actual channel. If it was actually the right length, I think it would be perfect!

    Fits

    One of the first bras that fit me right! Was really tight at first but after a week of wear it is perfect now. No more spilling out. My only complaints is tha tthe seams show through thin shirts and the straps are wide.

    ETA: After owning this for awhile it slides down a bit and then doesn't sit in my IMF. Not sure why but otherwise it does the job.

    Love the comfort, the look and the lift.
    Seems half a cup too small, cuts into tissue a bit, I would like to try it in GG.
    The band is very stretchy, I'm usually a 36 in Freya but wearing this one in 34 on tightest hook.
    I have heavy and pendulous breasts and this is my first half cup so I'm thrilled to see I can wear this style even if it doesn't fit perfectly.

    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.

    Oof. This bra is just not shape-compatible with me. Should have known, since I struggled so much with the Freya Patsy as well. Where to begin...

    I'm close-set, with tall roots, my breasts have more inner fullness than outside fullness, and have some bottom projection. The Lauren cups are a bit too closed for me due to the horizontal seam, and the shape is a bit too squared off where that seam starts to curve down toward the center of the bra, resulting in a weird puffy pocket of space toward the top of the cup near the gore, despite the edge lying flat.

    I also get a perplexing combo of bulging over/gaping at the sides of the bra. Best I can tell, the wires are both too short and too wide for me.

    This bra is underwhelming. I had such high hopes, but it's just not very comfortable. The straps are too wide. The gore is too wide and high for me. I don't think the band is too tight, but it tends to give me major back/underarm fat. The underwires kind of hurt after a while too. . . Such a disappointment.

    Overall, this is a nice bra. I have a 35" ribcage, and I feel like I should have sized down to a 34" band because it feels way too loose and not supportive unless I put it on tighter hooks. I fill the cups mostly, but they seem to be pretty high so there's a bit of gapping at the top of the cup only, which I don't mind. Everything else is comfortable and it does give me a tiny bit of soft cleavage so I'll probably end up keeping this bra so long as I can fit in the band!

    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.
