The band is like one designed for tapered rib cages, a little longer on top than on bottom. maybe thats why on me the soft cups seem to want to splay farther apart for me as I have a like no descension in circumference along my ribcage. Also this band is the tightest of all Freyas I've tried ...which is to say it runs average for a 28. It's still fairly stretchy and longer than I prefer (I like really snug or 26 size bands) but sturdy and comfy.
The cups are not just padded as in moulded but like padded padded. not hugely but there is .25" of squishy compressible foam.
The support is only moderate on me I guess mostly because It is not a shape match. I get extreme cup gaping in the centre and plus the cups fold over at the bottom where theyre too shallow to be filled by my heavy immediate projection...the cups sit on My boobs instead of holding them and taking on their shape. If you are shallow and/or want cleavage this would be a good bra to try.
Me: tall roots reaching collarbone, very close-set (touching), average to narrow width, shallow, splayed east-west, even but functionally FOT due to tall roots, centre-full horizontally, size asymmetry. Measurements: 26" snug UB and 34" leaning bust.
