This was very graciously donated to me by veggiechic ; thank you so much for sending me this to try on! Unfortunately, the cups aren't projected enough, and I get some major quadding at the top. The band isn't very stretchy, so it's a tad too tight for me to be comfortable. It's a shame, because this bikini is ADORABLE! I love the colors and the print; it's got a very 50's sailor-esque vibe going on. The top of the cups has a navy blue piping/line decoration that ends in a little bow on the right side cup only, which is a nice touch. The clasp is plastic, but seems heavy duty enough that it won't come undone while in the water. This bikini seems a bit smaller in the cups than other Freya 30GG's I've tried, probably due to the padding. It's not thick padding, but more of a foam lining.
Pretty good! I like the padded feeling, I had never had a well fitting bra or bikini that was padded. Looks good, although it's a bit shallow at the bottom, so my breasts are pulled up a bit. It works fine though, I don't get quad boob and my boob just sits a bit higher than with unlined bras and bikinis. If I were to buy it, I'd probably get a cup size up to be more comfortable. But it's really good for a bikini that I'm only going to use for a few months each year. The band is super supportive. I love it!
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 to a 38 band, because I was concerned about only having the one plastic clasp to work with. It doesn't ride up. I really like this sweetheart cut, and it gives great support and a nice uplifted shape.
I ordered this swim top as a sister size since it didn't come in a 34H. I expected the band to be a little large and the cups to fit. The band is perfect, however the cup is at least one size too . I'm hoping no more than that since I've already re-ordered in a 36G. It's a pretty bikini, and comfy from what I could tell. I also wouldn't call it 'padded.' It's thickly lined. Standard S-clasp back, fairly thick straps. I'd recommend ordering a band size up, and at least one cup down.
I like this a lot. It's cute & while I do get some quad-boob, it's nice for the cleavage effect without being too much. Material feels very nice with light padding and a snap close at the back. The only reason I can't fill the sides are because my breasts are extremely extremely narrow. That being said, freya is a close enough fit & glad I got this one. Very comfortable & supporting.
