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

    It seems the cups run a bit large on this bra. I can't quite tell if the shape will work well for me, but it seems promising. I'll be re-ordering this bra in a 30D.

    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.

    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.

    Didn't fit

    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!

    I measured this bra today and it's been worn quite a few times about a year ago so it's probably stretched. I've lost about 35 pounds since I wore this bra so as of today with my current measurements it is definitely way too big.
    It used to fit ok (not great), is good quality and very comfy. A good everyday bra (when it fits)...

    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 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.

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