    My shape is low set, narrow and short rooted, soft and slightly pendulous.

    This bra was a good deal from eBay, so I decided to give it a try. I didn't really need another beige bra, but it looked like it could fit well, so here we are. The bra is a 3 part half cup with decent apex projection and moderate projection at the wire. The bra is beautiful actually, with finer detailing along the straps, cup edge, and gore that give it something extra. The lace stops around the wing and doesn't extend all the way to the clasps, which is always a shame. The band is ... true to size and feels secure...not too stretchy in my humble opinion. I pulled until the cup started to distort. There are 3 X 2 sets for hooks. The straps are wider than average, which is great for extra comfort and support. They adjust fairly easily, and the ribbed edging on the straps keeps them from slipping. The cups measure 15 cm and are great for my short roots. I do get a slight bit of bubbling on my larger side (and it's low tide), and there is not a ton of space for centre fullness, but I am still held in. The gore isn't too tall, which is good because the gore width was a whopping 3cm. If it came any higher it wouldn't have worked for me, because it would have been sitting on breast tissue. The wings are too short for me, and I feel like I had side boob escaping. The cups measured fairly narrow also, but I like my bras to have a slightly more U shape to them so they hold my boobs in more securely on the sides (my soft tissue squishes out if the cups are too wide or the wires are not shaped right for me). The bra itself, as mentioned, has some beautiful lace detailing, but the material itself feels just slightly cheaper compared to my Comexim bras (for example). The bra arrived quite wrinkled, but I'm sure it'll be fine after a wash or two.

    Edited to add: So after wearing this bra, I noticed that the spot at the back where the straps are connected to the bra itself have a plastic ring that squeaks when I move. Not ideal. My boobs settled into the bra so there's no bubbling while I wear it, but I do have side boob escaping. I also noticed that the edges of the straps have scalloping and it's a bit sharp with wear, irritating my skin slightly (hope this lessens with a wash and wear).

    Overall, pretty bra with good shape, good comfort, and decent quality.

      Thanks Sovavosi . It reminds me of the older honey cookie.

      oh, this is so pretty on you! And such a neat, perfectly rounded shape. Maybe if you keep an eye out you'll be able to get a deal on a 30FF for the fuller part of the month. I know I have seen Ivanas (and Mariannas? I think) super discounted on various UK discounter sites.

      I think your photos/review also enlightened me as to why I will never get a nice rounded shape in ANY of the Freya and Fantasie half cups. My roots are narrow too, I do great in many other brands' half cups, and I typically fit virtually the same cup dimensions, but my boob shape is woefully devoid of side volume--my tissue can be temporarily reoriented but really it just wants to settle way the heck out in front of me :-D It will just gradually move back toward the midline of my body after I've put the bra on, no matter what the cup shape wants it to do, so the outside of the cups sits sad and unoccupied as there's nothing there to round it out.

      I guess on the other hand, my shape means I rarely have to worry about wing height or wires too short to contain me on the sides, since my boobs just flee the area!

      This looks beautiful on you ! Love the straps!

    • wendybien that's funny. Mine just squish whereever there's room! This bra is surprisingly narrow for a UK bra though. I might just keep an eye out for 30FF... unless my boobs shrink as I'm trying to lose 5 pounds before a beach trip!
      Sonya thanks. Yeah, I love the little pretty details too.

    • Looks so nice and the shape you get is beautiful! Very romantic style of bra.

    • Thanks braluv ! I'm pretty happy with it considering that I got a good price on it.

    Didn't fit

    This fits true to size for a 30E.
    I need narrow separation, and this bra delivers. However, there is a little extra room in the bottom of the cups I can't quite fill, but it is not too bad. The underwire goes a bit wider and out-side edge downward angled than my narrow breasts prefer.
    Very lacy, full-coverage.

    Very comfortable t-shirt bra, gives a great round shape. I have worn this to death, so the band is too loose now, I'm on the last hook and it could be more snug., a 28E/F would probably fit better. It's a bit wide on me, and I don't super like the minimizing effect of this bra. Wish it pushed my boobs more front and forward instead of flattening, could be good for shallower boobs.

    I wanted to like this bra because it's beautiful. The gore was on the wider and higher side, but felt comfortable with my wide-set breasts. Unfortunately, the wires were way too wide (by about an inch), yet did not come up high enough to keep all of my side tissue in place. Plus, the bottom of the cup was too shallow, and I'm not projected. I actually felt the bottom underwires roll in order for the bra to go below my inframmary fold, which I'd never felt before! Despite that, the wires did feel sturdier than a Freya half-cup, and the fit was a bit reminiscent of that style as well. This one had to go back, but would definitely suit those with a shallower profile and in need of wide wires.
