This bra fits! It was a bit of a surprise, to be honest, because I haven't had a lot of luck with soft cup bras. I don't get any wrinkling or quadding! Yay! The cups are very projected and very closed at the top. I would probably get quadding if my breasts had more even fullness, but luckily it works well with my FOB breasts. I get a nice rounded shape from the bra, not at all pointy. My only criticism with the fit is that it really pulls my breasts away from each other, and it doesn't give a lot of lift. Still, the bra is very comfortable and I feel well supported.

The construction of the bra wasn't quite as good as most Freya bras. The cup is made of two layers - a satiny fabric and a layer of soft mesh. The satin fabric is sewn in two parts, and the mesh layers has three parts. The two layers aren't sewn together, except at the edges. Because of that I got some weird bunching of the mesh the first time I put it on. The elastic around the armpits doesn't sit flat against my body - it almost looks like ruffles. It doesn't show through clothing, fortunately, but it is still odd. I found the band pretty true to size.

I haven't decided if Zen is a keeper or not yet.
