I am on the fence about this bra. On the one hand, I love the design, and, at 29" fully stretched, the band is quite snug compared to other Freya 28's I've bought recently. I can happily wear it on the largest hook. Overall, the bra is very comfy.

On the other hand, the shape it gives is appalling. (Let's just say that it's not appalling if you want to look like a Mad Men housewife....) I've noticed this problem crop up increasingly often with Freya's plunge balcony bras, which used to be my go-to shape. I still wear my three-year-old Freya Martha Plunge Balcony Bra (1301), for example, which gives a lovely rounded yet natural shape, and is supposedly the same cut. My two-year-old Freya Patsy Plunge Balcony Bra (1221) is still nice but a little pointier. And now, in 2015, the pointy plunge balcony bra has reached full fruition in the Fan-tastic, with its sharp, unforgiving point.

I am not ready to give up on this cut yet. I truly adore the Martha! But something has definitely gone awry.

This bra is not owned any more
