Def too big, need a 28FF
- Strap separation:
- Are too far apart
- Band fit:
- The back of the bra is not at the same level as the front (rides up)

Ahhh, the Freya Marvel...like a breath of fresh air for your boobs!! If only it fit me! I got this from another user as an exchange. I was looking for something soft, comfy, unpadded, but NOT sheer, and pretty supportive. I think the Marvel is exactly just that! Super soft and comfy, and I see it as being supportive in correct size.
I usually go with 28 bands but figured a 30 in Freya would work just as well. Not so much. The band on this isn't nearly as tight as other Freya 30 bands usually are. I had to hook it on the tightest hook and eye from the start and tighten the straps a good bit. Luckily, they are fully adjustable and thick as all Freya bras are.
I am not too crazy about the wires on this one. They were far too wide, which is odd because the measurements are exactly what I usually go with. But they ran all the way out to my sides under my armpits! For being a "Side Panel/Support" bra, I found it somewhat awkward. You can see in my pics, on my left smaller breast there is wrinkling under my arm in the side panel. But on my right larger breast you can see the clear definition of where my boob actually starts to fill out the cup and where there is empty fabric on the side, if that makes any sense. The cups were also rather short and I'm almost worried that if I go down in size my nipples will pop out. There was also a good half inch of empty space at the bottom of the cup before my boobs actually started to fill them out.
The gore on this bra is pretty high/tall compared to what I'm used to. But, surprisingly, it didn't really bother me. It tacked just right and fit quite nicely.
This isn't the sexiest, most flattering bra in my wardrobe. It's actually quite plain and simple (this is the nude colorway). But, after trying it on with a shirt, I was pretty darn amazed!! What a lovely shape!! This bra gives a wonderful, round, natural kind of shape...no pointy boobs at all!! Yay, unless you prefer that look. But I think the shape it gives under clothes makes up for the boring aesthetics of it all. I think this would make a great summer bra, nice and light, no bulkiness (the seams did show thru slightly, tho). This bra might not be good for FOB as there wasn't any real immediate projection and it seems like it may cause the top of the cup to wrinkle or gape.
This bra is not owned any more
