    Band is slightly too big. Despite this, it is a rather comfortable bra. The centre gore does not sit flat against my sternum and the wires get twisted. The straps are fairly wide, but I appreciate the comfort they provide. Kind of pointy from the side.

    I'm giving up on Freya and sister brands. The wires just aren't stable enough for big cup sizes.

    I really wanted to like this bra because I had heard so many positive things about it, but unfortunately, it just isn't for me.

    The shape is far too east/west for me, much more so than any other Freya bra I have tried. If I moved my arms while wearing it, I found my boobs to be in the way on the side. It does gives a nice, somewhat rounded profile, though. The center gore does not lay flat yet I had some issues not filling the very top of the cups, so I had a tad bit of wrinkling (but it was not noticeable under ... a shirt.) I believe if the bra had just a bit more uplift, this would not have been such an issue. I do have full on bottom boobs, but with enough uplift, I usually don't have problems filling the tops of cups.

    The band is not as stretchy as many other Freya bras I have tried, so it seems to be firm and supportive. The straps are wide and comfy, but they are far too apart for my shoulders.

    **Edit: Since return shipping cost half of what I paid for this bra, I decided to just keep it. After wearing it a little longer, I have decided I like it a little better now than when I initially tried it on. I am kind of a baby when it comes to tightness of bands, so at first I was convinced the band was very snug on the first set of hooks. Well, I decided to try it on the second set of hooks to see if that improved the wrinkling at the top of the cup, and yep, it did! (I can still fit my entire hand under the band, so I could probably even wear it on the tightest set of hooks or even a 30 band.) Either way, it fits much better now than when I wore it on the loosest hook setting. The center gore still does not lay flat and I actually have a tiny bit of quadboob now, but it's not a huge issue. People rave about how comfortable this bra is, so I want to break it in to give it a chance. It feels pretty good now except that the straps are too far apart and are chafing my underarms, but I have that issue with every single bra I own, and it usually because less irritating the more it is worn. The shape is not as bad as I originally thought, either.

    I've decided that this bra is good if you want a decent plain, ordinary bra. Nothing about it is spectacular, but it's definitely not bad, either.

    Wearing this one on the loosest hook at the moment and I am really liking it! It got a bit tight when I wore it for the first time for a full day and dug in a bit on my sides, but this should go away after I've worn it a few times.

    This is really the first seamed bra I have felt okay wearing. The seams on this one would definitely show through a thin shirt, but it is okay for work. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the shape it gives me though. I am used to bras with a bit of shaping/padding in ... them, so this is my first time with an unlined bra. As opposed to my padded bras, this one gives a more up front/boobs sticking out there look. Kinda hard to describe! It isn't as rounded a shape as I am used to.

    I think I am definitely going to wear this one again and see how it works!

    -ETA-
    I've had this bra for a month and it really has become my go to everyday bra. It's comfortable, supportive, and I've started getting used to the shape that this unlined bra gives me. I am actually starting to like it more than my old moulded bras! The sad thing is somehow I have gone up a cup size in the past month, so now I am getting a bit of quadraboob that wasn't there before. I guess I need to go up a cup size now.

    I got this secondhand in a 30H. I thought it would be fine (I normally wear a 32GG), but I think this must be an older Freya model as the band really isn't that stretchy like the new ones are.

    Nice basic black bra from Freya. Material is very soft, full coverage style.

    This is an older model, so the cup shape is rounder, and the band is firmer than what you would expect out of a more recent Freya. I purchased this based on the fit of my Freya Hopscotch, and the band here is MUCH firmer, so it ended up being a band too small for me.

    If you normally size down in Freya, you do not need to for this bra.

    Hasn't set fit

    Quickie initial impression: I thought Freya bras were all loose/stretchy in the band? This one is sooooooper tight on me. I should probably wear an extender. The cups also seem to fit. Still a bit tall for my boobs. Going to have to research to see if this is just an older style or if it's just mislabeled or something.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Update:
    Well, with my shrinking in overall and boob size, the band now fits, but the cup is way too big. I'll list it shortly.

    Great fitting bra but for a little quad boob. Very good quality; pretty, but simple enough to wear invisibly under shirts. I plan to order in a larger size.

    I've had this bra for over a year now and it's one of my favourites (red colorway). It's classic Freya produce - dependable, thick-strapped, creating a natural rather than uplifted/rounded boob shape, and almost indestructible. The fabric is smooth, almost like swimwear, and the straps are very comfortable, but also very wide (you do not want to be wearing this bra under a strappy top).

    I've altered the center gore, sewing it together, and after this small detail, the bra fits me perfectly (I am a larger 28HH/30H).

    My cat scratched a small hole into the fabric of the cups about two weeks after I got it and the hole ... has stayed the same this entire time, never getting bigger (quite amazing). Also, once I forgot my sports bra before a workout and had to spend an hour jumping about in the Antoinette - and my boobs didn't spill even once!

    All in all, I always reach for this bra when I am want to feel supported and secure. On the other hand, it cannot ever be called pretty or "delicate" - it's way too heavy-duty for that.

    Fits

    Love this! I like that it's bright without any fuss or frills. The cut gives me a much more rounded shape than a lot of Freyas. The cups have a little wrinkling at the bottom -- not sure if that's a shape issue or a size issue (I think they're just a bit shallow for me), but whichever, it's super comfy. I think I also have slightly too much center fullness.

    Shape-wise the gore seems quite a bit lower than some of my other Freyas, and the cups also don't come as high (despite what I've noticed from some other reviews -- must be a shape thing). Band is much firmer than Freyas I'm used to -- I probably could have gone with 32GG. But it's not uncomfortably tight, just more than I'm used to.

    This is a great bra I just ordered it in the wrong size. I havent worn it, just tried it on and put it back in the bag since it was too big around for me. I missed the return by date and the company wouldnt refund the money so I am trying to sell it. All brand new, never worn.
