This bra is a 34G Us size and 34 F UK size. My center gore does not lie flat on my sternum, and I'm bulging a little on the sideof the bra, but this is a soft cup. This sports bra has adjustable straps which is great and just a little bounce when I'm active. The cups are torpedo shaped. I don't mind this because I wear this when I work out. The straps are a little itchy, but again, I will only wear this when I work out, so I don't mind
Update*** years later, i have added pictures and I have since had a baby and gained/lost weight. This sports bra is more suitable for medium intensity. Also not good for very full on top breasts, I am full on top and the top of the cup is fine, but I have a lot of empty space in the bottom cup.
Cons: Silliest looking shape ever, when viewed from the side. Can we say pointy? I feel like a 1950s barbie doll.
Pros: This fit really well when I first got it and was still a 30 band. The band was tight enough to wear on the loosest hook. I got a ton of support from it and definitely felt comfortable no matter what exercise I was doing.
Even as a 28FF/G, I'm still wearing this bra to exercise in. It's a little quadbooby sometimes, but usually fine.
This bra fits well in the cups (only a tiny bit of wrinking on my smaller side), but the shape is too pointy for my taste. I could excuse the pointiness if it controlled bounce very well, but it doesn't. I'm a distance runner and hours of bouncing boobs hurts. The band is also more snug than I like, I have trouble fastening it on my own. I'll be returning this one.
Bought this on ebay for $9. Fits great and super comfortable. I've often found Freya 28 bands too loose, but this one is fine. Also, there's no underwire to dig in. Only issue is the shape---very pointy and attracts attention, unlike my other Freya sports bras with a rounded shape. For that reason, I only wear this around the house (but can't wait to change into it).
This bra doesn't get any points for appearance. Whenever I wear it, my husband grumbles and I feel a little bit like a grandma. The bra does a good job at containing my girls and keeping them in place but it is clearly visible under thin shirts and the straps are very wide and feel like they're going to slip off.
This bra is very comfortable and supportive but the band is VERY tight. The fabric is thin, so nipples can be seen through certain shirts. This isn't the prettiest bra and the cups are moderately pointed.
Pro: ~ With a cup size that fits, this is so comfortable for pms-swollen breasts. ~ Vintage bullet bra shape does well under sweaters and button down shirts. ~ Excellent support. Yes, it looks totally silly as a sports bra, but your breasts *don't bounce*.
Con: ~ The straps do NOT shorten enough. You can see in the angle shot that there's space against my sternum, even though the straps are adjusted as short as they go. The center gore does lie flat when I pinch the straps 2 inches shorter, which means it will be fine once I alter them. ~ The gore comes up very high on my chest. ~ The cup and band sizing are weird. My ribs are 26.5-27" and I'm generally wearing 28E bras right now...except for this one.
my shape: very short, short torso, proportionately short breasts, disproportionately broad shoulders, wide roots, FOB, inner fullness, projected.
