    The Freya Active Underwire Sports Bra style #4002 is an unpadded, underwired sports bra. I ordered it in Black, but it is currently available on Amazon in White, Beige, and Black.

    The band is super firm. Seriously firm. Flat 27" but only stretched to max of 30" firm. No joke. Wires are insanely wide at 8.5". Cups are shallow on bottom and pointy at the apex while measuring. The material is firm in the cup except at the pointy nipple area which is weirdly not as firm, but isn't nearly as point looking while on, although the cups definitely lack immediate projection unfortunately. It's odd. Gore wires ... end short, so the gore is 4.5” to the wire top, 5.5” to the fabric top. While the bra itself is not padded, but the straps are. They only adjust half way-in the back sliding up to loosened and down to tighten.

    As for fit, at first try on, the cups felt tight, and cut in a bit at the top. It’s as if it needed to be a bit more open on top since my breast tissue tapers up to my collarbone, but not necessarily too small in the cup. Gore was 2.75 fingers off my sternum, which is a bit much, especially for this type of bra. Side of cup is in my armpit (hello 8.5" wide wires) but wasn't painful or even noticeable really aside from seeing it in the mirror. (I only had it on maybe 10 minutes though, so this could change with longer wear.) When I tried it on in the morning for photos, the cups felt too constricting, and uncomfortable. As if the bra cups shrunk overnight a bit. It didn't feel as comfortable as I knew it should. Band felt good on the tightest hookset. (Thank you 4/4 hook/eye combo-I love you.) Alas, back to Amazon this one went…..

    With the wonderful 4x4 band hook-set, I am tempted to try this in a 30K, but don’t really think this 30JJ is a full cup too small, so I am hesitant on ordering up, knowing that the cup width could also increase resulting in a horrible fit altogether…. I am also a bit tempted to try it in white in the 30JJ to see if it fits a bit larger in the cup, though that may just be silly…… Opinions anyone?

    The shape isn’t perfect. It’s a bit pointy, and as the photo from below shows, very East West, though I hadn’t noticed that until cropping the photos.

    I must gush on this 4x4 hook-set though. I swear it is the perfect combination. With 4 hooks, it really helps to anchor the cups where they should be, and feels 1000x’s more supportive than even a 3 hook bra. Seriously, it puts the support where it needs to be, covering not just at the base of the wire, but practically all the way to the top of the wires, so you are getting full wire support. Seriously, it is perfect support, I am telling you! I remember a Parfait by Affinitas bra that I had (Sophia) also had the 4 hooks and while the bra didn’t really fit me, I didn’t return it due to those 4 hooks. Every so often, I’d put it out and try it, hoping the fit had changed, as I really wanted to be able to wear it! Even with it not fitting, that darn thing was so comfortable. At the time, I was thinking it was so comfy due to the cups being made completely out of full stretch lace, but now I am thinking it was the 4 hooks.

    The final details:
    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 13.25”
    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 15”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

      I had white, black, and tan. I didn't really notice any difference in them TBH. The cups were too small. They just flattened me backwards instead of up, but because of the wide wires it was uncomfortable instead of unbearable.

      Sovavosi Thank you! Now I know to skip trying the 30JJ in White.
      I was wondering how a wire transplant or bending would work in it, but wasn't wanting to keep it on a "maybe it would be better" so I didn't risk it.

      I just wish more manufacturers did the 4x4 hook set!

      I tried putting a short Porcylenne wire in it. It didn’t stay put because the wire channel is so large. The bra just seems badly made.

      Also good to know! I guess I will pass on attempting the 30K then as well. Thank you for your input and help! 💋
