I read some rave reviews about this cut, some of them saying it might be better to size down in the cup. I’m between 30e and 30f now, but most of my 30e doesn’t fit me anymore, besides some Freya bras. Therefore I thought it would be safe to order this one in 30e. Well, this cut does run large in cups but not a whole size or at least not on me. It’s actually hard to say if it fits as there seem to be a kind of shape mismatch. This bikini top features some of Freya characteristics I particularly dislike and which definitely convinced me to stick ...with EM bras: - The underwires are shorter than the channels. I don’t understand why they always put shorter underwires. In my case it causes a lack of support. - The part of the cup between the strap attachment and the outer underwire’s end is very long, too long for me and it wrinkles. - The upper part of the band is too long and it doesn’t stay put. This bra just doesn’t seem to be made for my shape and proportions. The cups cut in (the quad boob decreases with wear though, it’s less dramatic than of the pics) but I don’t think a bigger cup would be fine since there’s already too much room under my armpits. It’s important to note that the cup material is more or less stretchy. Other than that, the band is rather standard. I have a Freya Supernova bikini top in 30F which is super tight and extremely uncomfortable. This one is much looser but still firm and supportive. I think it’s ok for a bikini top but would be definitely too loose for an everyday wear. The elastics in the band seem large enough to not cut in. This bikini isn’t a perfect fit but will try it in the water before deciding if it’s wearable or not. Read more 209 more words
I love this bikini. It fits better than most of my bras. The cups are a little wide, but very comfortable. The stretchy fabric allows for any amount of projection. I sized down in the cups (from my usual 30F to a 30E) since I'm pretty center heavy (and a plunge style means a lot of my breast tissue is not actually in the cups). There is some odd puckering at the top of the cup sometimes, but adjusting/pulling on the cups a little fixes it easily.
My shape: soft, deflated, full on bottom with tall shallow top, measure to 36E
Great for swimming. I usually wear it under a rash guard. I preferred to size up a band, because I was concerned about only having one clasp. I think the band runs true to size, though. This is my preferred bikini top, since it gives great support and a nice uplifted shape without showing a ton of boob.
Love this bikini. It's up there with the freya eclipse as the best bikini top ever. Great round shape, very comfortable, yet still shows a nice amount of cleavage. I can't stand all the fabric with bikinis in large cup sizes, I feel like I have a huge towel around my boobs, making me look even bigger breasted. This bikini is different though. I never have to adjust, everything stays in place. I normally wear a 32gg in most bras. I bought this in another color but bought a 34ff for the second one. The 34ff fits better but I can still wear the 34g. 32g would fit the best but I just bought what was a good sale.
I love this Bikini top! It's the first one I have that fits like a bra and is adjustable. The band is nice and snug (tighter than the same size on the Cha Cha) and the cups fit nicely. It creates nice but not too much cleavage. Bought two.
The bra is too big, I get wrinkles in the cup, which surprised me as I have the balconette in 32F and felt it wouldn't hurt if the cups were a little bigger and I've read that it sometimes works on a plunge to size up in the cups. I'm going to return it. Maybe I'll try it in 32F. It's definitely the Best bikini I ever had. The band is fine now but I hope it won't strecht too much. Beginning to wonder if I might fare better with a 30 band.
