Used to fit

I bought this bra for one reason. It's yellow. Not neon yellow... a nice, soft, lemon yellow, and there is a serious lack of yellow bras on the market that might fit someone with projection. I intentionally picked a 30 band because gateway backs tend to make me look like the Michelin man. I was hoping to avoid having 4 back rolls and this band accomplishes that while still staying secure on the middle hooks.

I've gathered from reviews of the Fancies padded half cup longline that it's a generally terrible bra with very flexible wires and zero projection. Thankfully I can report the unlined plunge version is much sturdier. I'm aware a lot of Freya plunges require a very specific shape and I expected this to wrinkle at the apex while cutting into my upper root but it really doesn't do that. In all honesty, this is one of my better technical fits which was a sweet surprise. It's not as comfortable as an Ewa or even a CK, but it is Freya and I didn't expect the world here. Very narrow wires, very good immediate depth. Very wide gore. I'm splayed and it's short so it doesn't bother me although if it was any taller it would and it would bother a lot of people who are close-set all the way to the IMF. The gateway back is fun and a little more delicate to look at so I've let it show with strappy back shirts without feeling like I'm telling the world HEY, HERE'S MY BRA BAND.

I know this bra, with its wide keyhole gore and single hook band, isn't gonna be everyone's cup of tea. But it satisfied my craving for a pastel yellow summery bra on the cheap via Amazon so I'll keep it around.

Lemon Sorbet colorway

    Looks great on you! It is indeed a nice soft yellow for summertime too.

  • That is very cute!

    What is a gateway back?

  • Thank you! I feel like my pics don’t do the color justice, the light in my room kinda sucked lol

    Sovavosi its a bra band with a split back... hard to explain. Others may have posted pics of the back of this bra, I did not because I have a good size identifiable tattoo on my back I can’t really edit out. Gossard did a lot of bras this style, the Phoebe comes to mind and I know there’s pics of its back on here

  • Thank you, I found a picture. I was having trouble trying to Google this term :)

  • It's lovely on you!

  • This makes me want to try this bra again in 30E. It's so pretty.

  • Gorgeous! I like several of the colors Freya offers in this style, but the gore and narrow wires....ouch. Thrilled this beauty works for you!

  • Just tried this on in black in a sister size... I really like it, but doesn't quite fit my FOT shape! Glad it worked for you, I love the fabrics. :)

    Fancies comes in so many cute colors, but I think this is one of my favorites! Sadly it didn't work for me - gore was much too wide and the elastic at the top of the cups cut in.
