    30G

    Hasn't set fit

    Bandeaus are generally not a good fit on my close set and evenly full boobs. I'm starting to realize there are very little exceptions to this rule (I've had some luck with Cleo bandeaus). Unfortunately, the Revival bandeau swim top is not a good fit on me. I bought the 30G after trying the 30FF and discovering that the cup volume was not enough. The cups on the 30G are rather shallow for my shape and while the band is comfortable, it is clearly too large. The resulting effect is that the gore doesn't tack and the band where the wires are encased also does not lay flat ... against my body. I don’t get an east west look, but my boobs are definitely not as close together as they normally would be sans bra.

    List of bad fit issues: quad boob, loose band, inadequate projection, nothing tacks, resulting boob shape leaves something to be desired

    I'm keeping this only because the colourway is so damn awesome. I'm a sucker for indigo. There are some colours and designs that just appeal to you. It’s impossible to describe the feeling you get when you see something that looks so good—something that just makes your inner want scream GIMME.

    I'd recommend this if you have moderately spaced FOB boobs without needing a huge amount of projection. It's more lightweight than Cleo bandeaus if you're looking for something that is cute and adequately supportive without feeling like you're wearing plate armour.

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    This is the first Freya swim top I’ve tried. It’s lightweight with some side support and lightly lined foam cups. The coverage and stiffness is less than that of any Cleo bandeaus I’ve tried. The back closure looks cleaner and tidier than string tie closures, but lacks the adjustability. Cups are more shallow than not and lacks immediate projection. As a bandeau style, I think the idea is not projection, but a more flattened and close to the body shape.

    I know I look best in plunge styles and any style that doesn’t restrict the tops and middle of my boobage, but years of having no options other than ... plunge bras have caused me to prefer the look of half cups and bandeaus.

    So the top is a bit of a mini disaster for me—mostly from being too small. If I pull the wires right to my IFM and wiggle my boobs in to try and fill the bottom of the cup, I get the dreaded quad boob with the two upper boobs resembling pecs. The band is loose and after a few moments, the swim top begins to slip down and away from my body. At this point, the cups are no longer cutting my boob in half horizontally and it almost looks acceptable from most angles. But I will likely exchange it for a 30G simply because I know 30FF is definitely too small on me.

    32G

    Didn't fit

    This top is very pretty, and I'm sure would be lovely if I could fit into it. However, the band is sooooo tight! Even stretched it is only 31 inches... so I'm not sure how it can be considered a 32? The cups are a nice shape and may fit if I could get it on, but as it is I don't really know. I'm sad because the suit is nice looking and well made.

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    Dear god this is an atrocious fit. The band is larger and stretchier than an average 30, the cups are wide - they end at the back of my armpit - and shallow (so much space at the bottom!), the shape it gives my soft, pendulous boobs is nowhere near attractive - very east-west, and the top of the cups (the contrasting aqua and white stripes) angle inwards so badly my boobs appear to sit at the lower end of my ribcage. The halter strap helps a little with lift and shape, but there's only one setting for it - in my armpits, and it's really tricky to get it to sit comfortably. Without the strap, there's no way the bra will stay up.

    If I keep it, I will add a narrower setting and also probaby replace the wires to make the cups narrower, but I will be getting one of Freya's plunge style tops in addition to the Revival.

    30D

    Didn't fit

    i wear a 28D and am moderately shallow, slightly conical, and slightly wide. i am average set and even.

    i was an orange in a glass. the shape of this bikini cuts into me so badly it's laughable. too small and wrinkly at the same time.

    Cups are too small and the band is too large for me. Wearing this without the strap would be problematic.

    32F

    Fits

    (Sorry for my english, I'm french!)

    Great bra, i have it in black&blue and it looks beautiful. It fits my "even" and average projected breast, but i think the shape is good for a FoB shape too, because the top of the cups are pretty close.

    For my measurements, i think the 30FF must be a little better, but in France, the only big shop which sells Freya don't have the 30... So I take the 32F, which fits me too.



    Très beau maillot de bain, je l'ai en bleu et noir, il est très chouette. Il convient à mes seins "even" moyennement projetés, mais je pense qu'il est très bien aussi pour des seins FoB car le haut du bonnet est assez fermé.

    Au vu de mes mesures, le 30FF aurait été encore mieux pour moi, mais l'un des seuls grands magasins qui vend Freya en France (les galeries lafayette) ne font pas les bandes en 30... Du coup, je me suis rabattue sur le 32F, qui me va aussi.
