I got this after seein fullerbustinspo on IG try it. The XL translates to a 34H on their size chart, but it didn't look too out of place on her, so I figured I'd give it a try too. ( I wear 34J/JJ)
First, the quality feels great. The straps are thick and feel sturdy, the lining in the "cups" are divine, it's sooo soft, one of the softest materials I've felt lol.
The band is supposed to fit 32 to 38 and I was of course like "hmm.." about that, but actually they've thought it through! The clasp-hook things.. It's like it has a built in extender! It's awesome. It has 6 rows of hooks!
Size wise, yes it's a little small, but for the purpose I want it for, basically sitting at the computer or maybe popping out to get a parcel or something super quick, I think this will be excellent. I can definitely feel the weight on my shoulders but I wasn't expecting any magic lifting either. And my boobs are heavy AF so it's to be expected. And I am definitely showing some serious cleavage in this lol.
I put the band on about the middle hooks just to not be totally squished in the cup, and it's loose but not so loose it moves around or anything. I'm not popping out of the bottom of it by any means. (Unlike the other Freya Bralette I bought with this one lol).
I think if you wear around 34H-36GG, this will fit you great in XL.
Negatives: rubs a little where the straps meet the front of the bra, and the outer fabric isn't as soft so it can irritate your armpit area/if you rub your arms against it there.
Edit: I wore this for over 6 hours yesterday just at the computer, was great. comfortable etc. Wore it for another 4-5 hours today including going to the supermarket. It's great! I wish it was bigger in the cup but overall this is a fantastic bralette so far. I will absolutely recommend this bralette!
