Used to fit

I bought this bra used off of eBay and thought it would prob be too big after I cross checked the measurements here on Bratabase. The cups seemed a little deep for a 28G, and the wires are a little wider (almost 6") than what I was expecting. I also had to hook the bra on the tightest setting, but I'm not sure if that's just from the previous owner stretching it out or not. But even so, it def wasn't as tight as my other Freya bras in a 28 band. Because the band felt a tad loose I tightened the straps more, which only gave the cups an awkward pointy shape. The cups are tall to begin with, but tightenening the straps made the cups come up even higher. The top of the cup started right away, like right next to my armpit, which I am not used to at all. So I loosened the straps almost completely and was quite surprised I thought for sure that in doing so the cups would wrinkle, but it actually made them a bit less pointy and more natural-looking, without any wrinkling.

The bra itself is pretty comfortable. I did notice after about 30 minutes that the gore was starting to bother me. I felt like I had to keep pushing it down, but I prefer shorter gores due to my close set boobs. And when I took the bra off after only trying on I had a nice red indentation from the gore. I still marked this bra as a fit in the system since technically, it does fit. I surprisingly had no quad boob, the cups fit and enclosed all of my boob and the wires weren't bothersome (except at the gore from being too high).

I wasn't too crazy about the shape it gave, typical pointy boobs. But I tried on a very tight shirt to see what it looked like and the shape wasn't all that bad, I've seen much worse. It sort of gave a very natural "upside-down 7" shape leaning more towards pointy than round. But the tighter the shirt the better the shape it gave. This might be one of those bras I only wear for "special occasions" or for a short period of time. It is pretty, and quite sexy with the sheer fabric. But I think I might do better in a 28FF, a NEWER 28FF where the band is tighter.

This bra is not owned any more
