My first trial of a Freya bra in years, the brand never worked for me in the past, but I was curious about how their bras fit nowadays.
First I have to say, that I wanted to order this bra in a 30JJ, but the size conversions on the zalando website where I found it, were all over the place.
It was recommended to size down in band, that's why I tried to get a 30JJ instead of my usual size 32J.
How the bra fits:
It is just huge! In every direction. The cups are super wide and also super tall on me. (Note: I have quite tall boobs!) Also there is like so much empty fabric on top of this bra! On the photo were I did not adjust the straps very short, my boobs only fill the bra a bit over the seam where the lower cup meets the upper cup!
The band did not feel big, but too big cups can make a band feel bigger. The measurements seem tts for a 30 band and it looked small. The wide cups definitely work as part of the band here. I think If I got this bra with the correct cup volume I would not need a 30 band! Actually this is like an example of a reverse letterphobia fit, too small band + too big cups. Not a good combination.
If I adjusted the straps very shortly, it looked a bit better but I still wasn't able to fill these tall cups.I could try this bra in 32J or even 32HH but I doubt it will work. There is a lot of room on top and on the sides. I think the wires would be still too wide. Maybe the HH would be ok, but I doubt the bra would be deep enough in that size. It's difficult to say since the bra was so big, but I think it would be quite shallow on bottom in the right size? I'm not sure about it.
1-2 words about the bra itself: the fabric is mesh / lace and a bit see through. It also feels kinda itchy, not a soft mesh. I don't think the fabric is high quality feeling. The straps are wide and comfy. The band is a thick material and very sturdy and not super stretchy. I don't recommend it, at least not in large cup sizes.
