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.
