    34H

    Didn't fit

    This Bikini top really impressed me. I tried Freya Bikini tops in the past, the unpadded plunge ones and they were not supportive and the wires were so wide they ended on my back. Also I had planned to try this top 34HH but they sent a 34H to me. (I had to order my EU size and they did conversions wrong. This was labelled a 75O on the site while usually 75O=34K and 75K = 34H!) Anyway - I already expected the worst since it's a padded top and I hate those. But when I put it on, it felt really good! The wires are not extremely ... wide but keep in mind this is a H-cup and I usually wear 32 J. So the wires in my actual size would probably be too wide.

    The cups are average depth but not too shallow. I don't get any empty space on bottom. The gore tacks and is a good height for me, it's not too tall or low. I just can't wear too low gores, they cut in my sternum and my boobs spill over. Not to in this top. I feel like my breast tissue is contained well apart from some minor quadboob between the cup edge and the decorative stripe. It also feels quite supportive! Not like a regular bra but supportive enough so I dare go out with it. Also wouldn't mind to put this on under clothing on my way to the pool / beach / lake. The shape is very good and round from the side. The padding of the cups gives it already a good round shape - unlike the unpadded top in which my boobs look droppy. I'm not familiar with Freya Deco these days but I think the cut could be similar.
    The band is okay so far - but keep in mind I measure around 31inch underbust. I only tried the bra for a few min and it felt like the band would just ride up slightly.

    So if I had nothing else and this was the only Bikini available to me, I would wear it! I also made the test to lie down in it and my boobs stayed inside. So it's good for laying down sunbathing. I don't know about swimming though, I plan to return so I cannot test this. I'm also not sure I'm confident enough for this style.
    I also think I should size up in cups but down in band, which is not possible since this stops at a 32HH.

      I think you should consider keeping it! It is really cute and looks very nice on you. I find it really hard to get as good of a fit in swimsuits as I do in bras, so I don't sweat small problems in swimsuits. To me, this looks like a win!

      this looks really good alisa !

      This looks so cute on you! I agree with veggiechic, you should consider keeping it and not worry too much about the minor fit issues. I have a Freya Bohemia Sweetheart Padded Bikini Top and I can tell you it wears really well in the water. Your top would look so cute with literally any style of bottom in any fun color.

      How cute!

      Now I'm tempted to go buy one. I have a freya deco cameo that's a decent fit for plunge tops and if this is similar it may be worth it

      This looks so so good on you, even if it isn't perfect. I think this style and art deco print is so pretty! If you like it, might be worth it to keep it and tighten the band a bit if possible!

    • Thanks :) I am on the fence about it. I have not worn a Bikini in years in public. If I keep it and not wear it I'd feel bad. It's available at a good sale price right now though...
      I found that I can get also 32HH or 34HH not sure if those sizes would work better. The quadboob is not massive so 34HH might be a bit big? 32HH wires could be too wide...

    • confused take my deco comparison with a grain of salt. 2012 it was the last time I could even sister size into a deco... so it's a distant memory. But I find this Sweet heart top has a decent shape that could work for many. It's not too shallow like CK but not too deep either.

    • Well they didnt have my size anyway so oh well lol

    32HH

    Didn't fit

    Check out my review 34H - Freya » Gatsby Sweetheart Padded Bikini Top (AS5861MOM) for more info on this style and my review of 32HH - Freya Swim » Sundance Sweetheart Padded Bikini Top (3970 for more info and why the Freya sweetheart cut ticks all the boxes.

    In short this bra fits similar to my 32HH Sundance and better than the 34H Gatsby as the 32 band gives me better hold and support. I usually wear 32 bands in most bras these days so I say it's tts. Sometimes it's recommended to size up 1 band size in Swimwear for comfort but I ... wouldn't recommend it on this. The cups run on the larger side and are full on top friendly since they are open on top and tall enough at the gore and straps to hold soft upper breast tissue in.

    This Gatsby style is discontinued and can be found for good prices on ebay where I got mine. I think it's very pretty. I like the black and white geometric print it's something different. I usually don't like the very flashy bold floral prints on Bikinis, This is a nice depart from that. As for the extra strap at the gore --- I know this was / or still is trendy but I'm not sure if I like it on this so much. Maybe it just isn't so flattering on fot soft boobs as the strap cuts in a bit and therefore makes it look like quadboob. I got 2 negative comments on it, saying the bra is nice but they dislike the strap which made me insecure and I only wore it once or twice yet. I think about cutting it off.

    I also own the matching pants in size L, they fit nice on my hips (108-110cm). They are called high waist bikini brief, but Imo they are just good coverage pants - not very high waisted on me or on the model as they end below the belly button. They look really flattering and even better than the really high waisted ones on me as they accentuate the hips and not the belly. If you are between sizes, size down in pants are they run generous.

      That looks like a great fit and is adorable. Congrats! I know that you have spent a lot of time looking for a good swimsuit.

    • Thanks :) I'm happy I found this. Now I just have to stay in my current size range since this bra stops at HH cup :( Freya should expand the range to K cup. I think it could easily work in larger sizes too as it supports my heavy bust quite well and I'm more of a 32JJ-K these days.

    • What a great find! Looks comfortable and supportive—yay!
