Used to fit

Freya Fancies was one of my favorite bras when I was a solid 28DD, thanks to the fact that it's pretty, comfortable, and comes in a beautiful assortment of colors. It took me a few tries to find the correct size as I started my journey with a 28D that I didn't immediately realize was too small and altered and wore for a while before switching to 28DD. However, since I have gone up a cup size in recent months, I noticed the 28DD's wires were too narrow and cutting in on the sides, and the closed top would dig into my roots. I decided to size up to the 28E, and I'm glad it still works for me! This review is specifically to discuss how the 28DD fit me, as I am currently a 28E, and my review under 28E is more comprehensive regarding the bra itself.

When I was a true 28DD, my shape was less rounded than it is now, and I was more FOB with a shallower top. I would have trouble at the time filling out the upper cup of other styles, like many other Freya plunges (Fearne, Sansa) and most of the Cleo/Panache bras I tried. This bra surprised me because it actually gave me a really nice rounded shape, very different from the pictures posted here of others wearing the 28D-DD-E size range and looking deflated. The measurements on this bra run deeper than similar size bras, but I believe it's due to the tall plunge cups, since my normal size has always worked for me in this bra.

The wires needed more adjustment for me in this size, however. The 28DD wires tend to have a strong J shape, and I need more C shaped wires. I always had to reshape them if they came in very J to open them up more, and I now realize that it's because the wires were too narrow for me and I really needed something wider. Thankfully the cup shape still worked for me once. the wires were opened up, and the 28DD was a great depth on me. So, I think this bra would suit both narrow and wider breasts as the wires are easy to adjust.

The band runs big, however, so while it works for me, it's hardly what I would call snug. If possible, I'd recommend sizing down in the band and sister sizing up to your normal cup size's equivalent. However, the shape of the cups really suits a round shape best, so I would not recommend this style if you are very shallow or if you are empty on top. It is a super comfortable bra and I love it for summer. Highly recommended if it suits your shape!
