I have 2 issues with this bra: 1. The underwires go up to high and bother my armpits. 2. The fabric of the bra is stretchier than the seams are, so there is a weird effect where my boobs push the bra out around the cup seams. The top of the cup is nice, but there's a line across the middle of my boobs. Otherwise, it's lovely. (Oh. I accidentally let my red bra sit, wet, on top of this one for too long one day, and now it has pink splotches. Those are my bad and not part of the look.)
This is the first Freya bra I have ever tried on which has such narrow wires it really cannot enclose my boobs. I wish I had read the other reviews before I bought this one, as it seems I am not the only one with this issue.
This is one of those situations that I just HAD to have this bra no matter what. I saw one picture and fell hopelessly head over heels in love with the black, white & gray design. It reminds me of toile, which I adore. I searched for a month & begged a UK-only seller on EBay to sell it to me in my size (34F). She said she would, then quit returning my emails. I couldn't find it in my 36E sister-size either. I settled for a bra I knew wouldn't fit perfectly, but I can live with it. I have enough Freya now that I think next time I would widen my searches (of irrational lust) to a 32FF as the bands are super stretchy. This bra is too small in the cups, but as there is only slight quad boob when I scoop & the scooping wont stay because I fall back out the sides of the cup (which doesn't show under clothing as much) I'm keeping it. I feel like adding, "My precious, my presssssssssssciousssss"! LOL
