    The band runs loose. I have another Freya bra in the same size, which fits very well, but with this one, I had to start using the second set of hooks immediately (I should have gone for a smaller band, but I was still enthusiastic from my First Fitting and allowed myself to be talked into buying this one. My bad.)

    The material used is a sheer mesh, which doesn't stretch much. I thought it would scratch, but it's in fact very comfortable... and I really like the way it looks.I love the detailing, and even though I'm not a big fan of pink hues, the subtle red/salmon color ... of this bra is wonderful.

    The straps are rather slippery - not that they would fall off shoulders (although I'm quite broad-shouldered, so I rarely have this problem), but sometimes, when I'm taking off the bra or putting it on, the metal thingummy slides up or down from it's own volition, which is rather annoying. I've never had to re-adjust the bra during the day, though, it really only happens when it's not taut.

    As for the shape from the side, see the photo. I was rather unhappy with it at first, because I felt too "pointy" but I've grown onto it.

    P.S. I've found a wonderful use for this bra - I wear it for my singing lessons https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> My ribcage expands temporarily during breathing exercises and wearing some of the snugger bands was rather uncomfortable. The Arabella is ideal.

    • One more thing I forgot to add, which I didn't realize at first: apparently, the Freya Arabella is famous for being a sheer bra, however, the balcony version (from GG up) is not fully sheer, only the top part of the cup is. It was not an issue for me, because I was buying it in a shop, but it may be a nasty surprise for someone who orders it online.

    The brand is feels supportive and I like the fact that there are 3 sets of hooks, not just 2 like in many Panache bras in this size. The band is, however, long compared to Panache for example, as is usual for Freya. I have to have it on the tightest hook on my 30 inch chest and it is till fairly loose (I can fit a hand in there, but not more).

    The cups are supportive, but the ribbon running along the top of the cup cuts into my breasts a little, although the rest of the cups is really big enough if not slightly too big. I ... don't think this style will work for full-on-top breasts.

    The shape this bra gives is also a little different. I wouldn't describe it as pointy, but it is very round at the bottom and kind of flat at the top, partly due to the constricting band running along the top of the cup.

    The straps are stretchy throughout and fully adjustable. Be warned that the contrasting seams will be quite visible through thinner clothes.

    • I can relate to the ribbon cutting across the breast. I thought it was just due to my boob shape, but I see now that it may be an issue for a lot of people people.

    • Yea, I think we're definitely not alone ;)
      I think this ribbon is also what causes they wrinkle along the seam between the sheer part and the opaque parts.

    This bra is beautiful; The light pink color of the embroidery against the black fabric really makes it stand out. Sadly, that's the only reason I like it. The shape of the cups really don't fit my breasts. I probably just might need a cup size up, but the shape just doesn't seem flattering on me.

    I got this bra on recommendation given that I have fairly projected breasts. Unfortunately, this bra is too projected- I don't fill it out. I also find that the upper mesh portion is too tight, and presses down in a way that prevents any upper fullness. I have soft breasts, so it's only unflattering, not uncomfortable, but I could see this being a real pain to someone with firmer breasts.

    The band is too large- I have it closed on the tightest hook in the pictures. I'm also have trouble getting the gore to tack- it's floating away from my chest.

    I'd try it in a different size, but with the upper portion of the cups being so unflattering (if lovely and feminine) I don't think I'll bother.

    I bought it second hand and quite used so band is stretched (even the tightest hooks are loose). The lower part was made sheer by previous ownerhttps://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> so it looks like Arabella in smaller cups. It gives lovely and round shape and it looks very sexy.
