The color of this bikini top is really nice. I was afraid it would be too neon or cool toned, but it has a nice hint of orange, which I like. Not too loud, but not too soft, either. The little charm on the halter tie says Freya, which is actually kinda cute and doesn't feel cheap.
I would consider myself a 28H, but as sizes were limited, I bought the 30H.
I figured going up a cup size wouldn't hurt since I'd gain a little more projection. It seems to have been a good choice because my breasts still force the cups down a bit, leaving empty space ... at the bottom and a GG would have been worse. I can live with this.
The band is comfortable and doesn't ride up or move much at all, which is surprising, but good. Materials are soft and the mesh lining isn't scratchy. Unfortunately, the gore doesn't tack completely and the right underwire also seems to occasionally twist a little, pushing away from my sternum, while the left one sits mostly flat. I imagine these things are caused by shape incompatibility (not nearly enough immediate projection and wires are too wide) and the fact that my right breast is a little bit larger than the left.
The shape it gives from the front isn't too bad. More east/west than I'm used to getting from EM or Cleo bras, though. From the side, it's almost upside down 7ish, but meh. It is what it is.
All in all, I'm not disappointed with it as it's still cute, serves it's purpose and fits better than any S, M, L bathing suit I've owned. I won't wear it all that often or for long periods of time, so it works out in the end.
