Fits

I love this bra and it fits! Hooray! My first one.
It's got some issues here and there but I would still call it a fit.
The wires were unwearable. They were the most painful wires I have ever come across. I couldn't leave it on more than a few minutes at a time, and it still left my rib cage tender to the touch the next day. It made the stabbing wires of the freya crush longline feel like a relaxing spa massage. Once I was sure it fit, I replaced the wires and it's fine now.
It was slightly too wide and shallow for me so I bent the wires. This fixed the slight quading and width issue. Both of those were minor enough so that this worked.
The straps are too wide and dig into my armpits. I make the straps as loose as possible to try and compensate for this. If I'm feeling brave enough, I might try to move the straps inward or replace them with thinner straps.

I like the oversized bow and how tall the sides are. The 28 band is tight enough for my 26 rib cage. I thought the contrast of the two different materials and the thick black lines were strange at first, but it looks better on. It gives a nice profile, not perfectly round, but still rounded and uplifted. Holds all swoop and scoop in place. I would get another one in a different colorway because I'm so happy with how this bra fits!

UPDATE
I replaced the straps with thinner softer ones, so no more cutting into my armpits. This bra needed modifications but it's sooo worth it!

    Word to the wise, I have heard their newest color ("floral shimmer") is narrower and more projected than previous ones. Never tried them though, and I'm tempted cause floral fits me great....

  • Thanks for the tip. I think I heard that one also runs large in the cup. Not sure if that's true or not.

  • I have heard that as well. I had to size down to E from FF/F
