Well. This settles it. Freya bikinis are for me! I have now tried a freya tankini and now this bikini, and they are SO compatible with my shape. You can see some of my other reviews for Figleaves and Panache bikinis.
One of my main issues with bikinis and bras in general is that the gore is too wide and the cups are too wide. In this bikini, the gore is a lot lower, as it's a plunge, and the cups are plenty fine. Still a little wide, but not in a way that distorts the cup.
This bikini is lightly lined, but not really padded. I thought the ruffles ... would be too much on my pretty ample chest, but it's not -- it's enough to be frilly and cute but not overwhelming. This bikini also holds you in firm without being too sexy or cleavage-y, which is nice!
I ordered the top from someone on a FB buy/sell/trade group. It didn't come with bottoms, so I ordered the bottoms for about $9 shipped on ebay in a size 10 UK. I normally wear an XS everything, but I found that size 10 in the bottoms was good -- it covers my tushie and hips and isn't baggy, but I think a size 8 would have been too revealing for my tastes.
I now want to buy a bunch of freya bikinis in a bunch of sizes! And more of the pier in different colors! I totally recommend this to anyone who has a narrow root and needs some projection.
Also, I typically wear 28 bands and measure small underbust. I found this to be tight enough for a bikini with no riding up. It is plenty tight for someone who needs 30 bands, and adequately tight for a 28 band wearer, in my opinion.
