I received this in June 2020 when I was about 32J/JJ in other bras, Back then I would have said that it's a good fit and I get no quadboob. Now at the end of summer I'm more close to 32JJ/K but I can still wear this bra. If I don't swoop and scoop too much I get no quadboob. For Bikinis my fit standards are lower than for regular bras as usually we don't wear them every day. Most important for me is : okay fit, band is snug enough to hold it up, cups give good coverage and nothing falls out, support is okay enough to wear 2-3 hours. Bonus if it also looks cute and gives a round uplifted shape.
The Freya Sweetheart cut does tick all boxes. It's a balconette cut with padding at the cups. I think the cut could be like their idol / deco models but I haven't tried those, it just looks kinda similar. I'd say it runs a bit large / the cups are on the taller side, that's probably why I can fit into an HH cup when I usually need 2-3 cup sizes largerI really love how comfortable and supportive this feels. I even don't mind to wear it under my clothes before I go swimming as it just looks like a regular bra under clothing. Also I like the shoulder straps. They look rather narrow but the width is just right to feel comfortable and not cut in too much.
I used to struggle with Bikinis - either they weren't supportive at all or the padding on them was so thick that it added lots of bulk and they didn't sit right and boobs fell out of the middle. This Freya bikini has light padding, it helps to shape and support the bust but it doesn't add lots of bulk. It feels like spacer foam. I was shocked how much I liked a padded bra as I usually hate them! I also say that the cut is full on top friendly as the top section is open and the cups are tall where they meet the straps so they hold in upper tissue well.
The Sundance style is a staple from Freya and is made in many different colors. Older colors are often available for good prices on ebay where I found mine. The quality feels good. I probably wore it like 10 times this summer and noticed 2-3 loose threads. Maybe the crochet part is a bit more sensible to wear and tear than if it were just regular swim material on the cups? But apart from that there are no issues.
Overall this Bikini top makes me feel confident and supported and I can go swimming without worrying about my boobs falling out. I really recommend it!
