This swim top fits great and is very comfortable. It has enough coverage and support for larger women while still managing to be flattering. Make sure you buy the right size though. If it is a bit big, you will have pointy boobs!
Someone just pointed out that it didn't look like it was fitting me correctly. I'd forgotten the underwire does not sit flat on this one. The other four like it I own do so I assumed it was a flaw in this one. I'm glad they pointed it out and am happy to share that tidbit with everyone.
This was the first cup-sized swimwear that I got! It was quite a relief to not have half of your boobs escaping from flimsy, unsupportive triangle bikinis. I love love love this style. Unfortunately, I grew out of it almost immediately, and later repurchased the same top in 28F - Freya Swim » Calamity Banded Halter Bikini Top (3587) (longer review over there!)
I was going to do a positive review and then I put this on and realized how badly it cuts into my boobs. Oh well.
This bikini is incredibly adorable! It looks like Minnie Mouse. I like the color combination and the shape of the neckline. The decorations at the edge of the cups really make the style. They are a bit impractical though, since they are made from thin strings which can gather sand and mud when swimming in a sea/lake. This doesn’t give an incredible uplift or shape, but good enough for a bikini and still keeps the girls decently in place. It’s also comfortable overall, although ...the neck tie does put some pressure on the neck.
I got this originally in 28E, and then repurchased in 28F after it got way too small. Although I’ve been wearing some newer Freya swimwear purchases more recently, I now realize that this style might actually fit better. It’s not ridiculously wide like some of the padded options. It offers some degree of projection, although still not a huge amount. My biggest issue here is that the trim at the edge of the cups cuts into my close-set, center-full breasts. It’s still not horribly visible, though, and the fit becomes a bit more flexible when the suit is wet. The closed edge does manage to keep my boobs somewhat separated, which I appreciate in something that I wear in public. The gore is luckily very low and doesn’t bother at all. The band feels a bit tighter than standard Freya, and feels snug enough for my 26 inch underbust (at least as a halterneck).
Another slight minus I have of this bra is that it’s unpadded. I’m not a fan of nipple show-through, and it’s cold in Finland! I also got the brief in size XS. Freya bottoms are usually rather loose for me even in the smallest size, but the swimwear seem to run a bit tighter. These fit rather snug, but are still a bit too high rise in the back for my taste.
