Had opportunity to try on the Red version in a store so I knew to order 1-band size smaller + 1-cup size larger as this band was just a bit loose in my regular Freya 30.
Incredible design! I'm less a frilly girl but they flatter in just the right amount and are positioned nicely. Cups are perfect fit, band is quite nice & snug, I'm assuming it may stretch some after a season of swimming. (Have yet to test it out!) Halter neck is tie-back so adjustable for cleavage.
Excellent buy and a timeless piece of swimwear. Highly recommended if you have any remote interest in it, go for it!
I actually bought this one about a year ago, and I bought it with the knowledge that it was an imperfect fit. I was pretty desperate to get a swimsuit that didn't have me flopping about and falling out in the ocean waves, and it certainly serves that purpose well.
I find the quality to be excellent. A year on, there's no frayed seams or bits falling apart/off, and it's been in ocean, chlorine, and parasailing. It's still a very stark black and white with no noticeable fading, and I haven't noticed any stretching either, although that may be because it was a bit too big to begin with.
It's ...also pretty comfortable and supportive. The only issue I have is that my boobs' weight does put a lot of pressure on my neck because it's a halter top, but that's obviously not a fault on Freya's part as much as mine. I should've realised this and come to terms earlier with the fact that my boobs are simply too heavy for halter tops.
Finally, I adore the way it looks. I love the polka-dots and the little frill details and if I could stand to have the neck pulled tighter my boobs would look killer in it.
tl;dr - I love this swimsuit top and would definitely recommend it to others, with the caveat of being careful of how much weight you're putting on your neck. Read more 126 more words
I absolutely fell in love with this bikini when I first saw it. I love the pink with white polka dots, and the ruffle across the top of the cups and up to the strap. I love that it's a halter top. It is just *so* feminine! I'm ecstatic. Yes, my boobs don't quite fill the cups, and if I were to buy it again (and I'm definitely lusting after it in the black with white polka dots) I would size down in the cups.
The fabric is terrific, with enough elasticity to fit the shape of my boobs, and to give ...some jiggle and bounce. The underwires are stiff enough to make this bra feel very supportive.
As it is, though, this is my very first bikini and I'm loving it. I am definitely keeping this one. The briefs fit great, too, but I'm not quite ready for putting up photos of my butt.
I love this swimsuit top. It is very comfortable, has great coverage (not too much or too little) and stays put in and out of the water. I have several Freya halter swim tops all in the same size. The Pier seems to run just a bit smaller. It fits but is a bit more snug than the others - mostly in the band.
This is by far the best swimsuit I’ve ever had. I originally ordered and reviewed a size 30FF and after trial and error, and realizing I am not a 30FF, I reordered in my now actual size a 28GG in the bright pink color. The shape is a sweetheart neckline with a ruffle detail along the top of the cup. The underwired cups and wings are lined with mesh material to help keep its structure. It has one plastic clasp in the back with a halter style tie at the neck. The tie straps are thick and have some sort of reinforced elastic material inside the straps to ...aide in support. I still have the complaint that after wearing it for an extended period of time the knotted part of the tie starts to dig in and irritate my neck no matter how loos or tight I tie it.
I paired this top with the matching bikini bottoms (#3022) that have a little ruffle detail on the hips that matches the ruffles on the top of the cups. This suit is fun and functional and very flattering.
I find this an ok bikini top. It is not extremely supportive, and I hope the halter style will not start digging into my neck with longer wear (I've had this problem with other bikinis). It does look cute on, but I would have preferred a slightly thicker material, to push my boobs up and to the center a bit more. I bought this mostly because of the matching bottom (60ies style briefs with a little frill), which looks absolutely awesome on me!
Freya bras (unpadded) and some bikinis don´t usually fit my shape. I have wide + tall root and shallow boobs and Freya seems to have always too closed on top, and too deep cups for me, but I read that this bikini top is an exception. I tried my luck and got a nice surprise!
My usual Panache size is 28F. I read that the band in Pier runs tight and cups small so I ordered 30F. Band is nice and snug. I do get along very well with the cups, too! The seam across the cups looks like it tries to wrinkle a little in the center, but ...this is very minor. The shape viewed from the side is not completely rounded, but very much so. I would never have imagined to get this good a shape from an unpadded freya bikini! From the picture it seems I have some wrinkling at the bottom of the cups. I think it can be removed by shortening the halter neck a little but I´ll have to test it. It might be that if I tighten it too much, the cups will cut in at the top.
I also got bikini bottom EU / UK M, which I think fits true to size. I usually wear UK 12 / EU M. It is the brief with frills.
Overall: Very nice indeed!! The bikini feels very secure, I feel like I could even do sports in this!! Even though it is not the perfect fit for me, I really like it! Read more 148 more words
This bra and the Freya Cherish fit the exact same. It is very pretty, and by doing some research I figured I should get a 32FF instead of my regular Freya 30G. The band is tighter in the swim suits, but I don't like to be suffocated! So I went to the sister size. It does fit like a 30G deco, in the band at least. I am worried though if it stretches out, I only have one clasp. I will just have to hope that doesn't happen! It's very soft and pretty. I think the colour is called sunsboule. It is yellow orange, and polka dotted, it has a really cute vibe that I love. I have the matching briefs too! I'm so excited to try this out!
This bikini is really beautiful and good quality. Straps very sturdy, very good quality lycra, and good shape for support. The raffles are great if you love them, though I'm seriously thinking of cutting them out, as I see my boobs even bigger when I wear it.
About the size, it is probably one size too big in the cups for me. I tried the 32FF and it was too small, though I needed 2 more sizes. I can wear it, but it would probably be better in a 32G.
The firs days wearing it I was very happy, but the more I use it the more uncomfortable I find ...it. I think it's because the cup is too big as I said. The wire seems very big for me, I can't quite fill the bottom and on the side it goes too far away, so it is not the most comfortable bikini ever for me.
If the shape is right for you, the bikini top is awesome. For me, I fond the wires a bit too big, although I use it anyways and I'm not unhappy. Read more 76 more words
