Didn't fit

This bra is probably the wrong size for me - I think I'm more of a 34J. The fit is difficult to evaluate, though. It's too big in some places, too small in others, and overall just feels stretchy and unstructured. At times, I seem to have a little wrinkling near the top edge... but after wearing it for more than a few minutes, I get pretty noticeable quad boob. I also get the east/west effect from this bra.

I am thinking that my problem with Freya bras (other than nailing down my size) is partly that I have very center-heavy boobs, and they demand strong wires to keep them separated/push them into the shape intended for the cups. Of course, I am also top-heavy, so it might be that the shape simply wouldn't work for me anyway.

One of the three frontal pictures shows how stretchy/unsupportive this bra is on me - when I move even slightly, my boobs and the bra move too. The band is likely too big, which doesn't help, but I suspect that the bra would feel quite... mobile? even in the right size. That's a mixed bag, though. It is very comfortable as a result. The wires also sit in good places, so the bra doesn't cause me any pain.

Looks: oh so pretty! That's why I bought this bra (that, and a ridiculously cheap clearance price), even knowing it was probably the wrong size. I love the bright floral print, the polka dot bow, and the lace edging on the bottom. The lace/solid ratio feels a bit off to me, but it would probably look better if it fit.

Because this bra is so nice to look at AND doesn't hurt me, it's currently my go-to bra for sleeping/lounging around the house. It's not perfect, but I take what I can get." alt=":)" />
