Used to fit
This bra is gorgeous, comfortable and gives me a great shape. I love it!
To be honest it's probably a tiny bit small in the cups but I am in between 28F and 28FF in Freya and I tried on the 30F in a store and it was a bit big in the cups, so I think the 28FF would have been too big. As long as the gore tacks and the underwires aren't digging in, I would personally prefer to have a bra that is a little on the small side than too big, as I hate the look of gaping cups under clothes. That issue aside, this bra is very comfortable and the back band doesn't seem to ride up even on my 26 inch ribcage. The straps are fully adjustable too, not that that is a problem for me. The only issue I have with the bra itself is that there are only 2 columns of hooks rather than the standard 3, which means it won't last as long.
I highly recommend this bra! I'm so happy that Freya is making it in a 28. For size reference: My ribcage is 26 inches, my bust is 34 inches, and I'm full on bottom. I usually wear a 28F in Freya bras though I'm definitely at the upper end of that size.
EDIT: I have just gone back onto the pill and my breasts have grown again, making this bra now too small for me. I've added pictures of how it is now. Shame as it's such a lovely bra! I'll still keep it for if my breasts shrink again.
