Very pleased with the fit and look of this bikini top! (Why can't I get a bra to fit like this?) As usual I'd be better off with a 28 band, but it wasn't available so I went with the sister size of 30D. The band on mine seems to be a little big -- it measures a full 32" stretched. However, I can easily take it in near the clasp. This top lifts and supports better than any bathing suit I've had in years.
The Freya Kansas is very well made, especially for a swimsuit. I was pleasantly surprised by the elastic ... inside the halter straps. I've never seen this done before, and I think it makes a huge difference as opposed to just having empty fabric ties -- it really adds comfortable support, but in a subtle way. The mesh fabric inside the entire top also adds some additional support. The clasp at the back is sturdy and easy to operate (unlike department store swimsuit hooks, which I've broken on one or two occasions).
The shape this top gives is very good -- not pointy at all as I feared it might be. Rather, it gives a very nice rounded shape, even for my small chest. The cups are two-part (meaning there is one angled seam near the center) and are free of all padding. They are lined with only the aforementioned lightweight mesh. I don't find them to be small -- I think the measurement is just what it should be for a plunge cup in this size.
Very happy with this purchase and would definitely buy Freya swimwear again!!
** UPDATE **
The band turned out to be too loose on this bikini top... However, swim tops are easily altered, so I've fixed it. It's the equivalent of a tight 28DD now, which is fine, because once in the water it loosens up noticeably).
