This bra gets a lot of shade but it's one of the first I ever bought (that fit) 15 years ago. Back then, all of the Freya bras were really well made and the bands were firm for size. The only Freya bra that hasn't changed in construction (and that's still manufactured) appears to be the Rio. It's also "classic Freya" when it comes to quality.

No question, this bra gives a pointish shape. It's not super pointy but it moves in a firmly pointy direction. It's also very sturdy - the fit is full for a balconette. It's not delicate. It reminds me of the kinds of bras / shapes that the supermodels wore in the 80s and 90s (albeit in "regular person" sizing). If you can't get with the retro look, and some people don't like the waffley fabric OR the shape, then it's really not the bra for you.

It provides excellent support. It gives great lower cup projection and is good for even to top fullness because the upper lace has a bit of give. It's best for centre-projected shapes that are close-set. The only thing about this bra that I don't like is the wideness of the straps. They're really just too wide, and the pewter metallic hardware that attaches the front cup to the front strap really calls attention to this. Nonetheless, it's great under a slim fitting sweater.
