    • It looks good!
      I'm surprised it has enough projection in that size.

    • I bent the wires narrower to add projection, but it wasn't terrible to start out with. It would be pretty much perfect with a smaller band

    • That's the best trick ever.

      Yay I'm so glad it worked out pretty good on you!

      Love Arabella! It looks like a great fit :)

      Minus the band of course. Freya needs to get their act together on those stretchy bands. :(

      I have one in black in the same size, but looks completely different on, sits lower and with less coverage. Curious to compare the bands, whether the black is any tighter. Need to add it to BTB with some pics soon. Love the 3piece cup Freyas.

      Queequeg0925 I think the stretchy bands may be intentional on their part for "comfort", but I'd definitely like to see them go.
      erispe I think it's so weird how the same bra can look so drastically different on different people and in different years. I've heard that black generally is tighter because the dye makes it shrink, but that may not be true.

    • Here are the pics of mine in the same size, diff colour: http://bra.pe/XP4c/
      The band feels tight enough, so it is quite possible that the black is tighter than the red.
      Well, our shapes are different, and the bras can't really drastically change our original shapes, I guess. Also being at the lower or upper threshold of a certain size can affect the fit. There are some brands I cannot wear if between sizes, the smaller being too small with quadding, while the bigger having too wide wires and cups too separate.

    • I can't see your pictures, but the measurements are fairly different. They could be different seasons maybe? Or maybe mine is stretched out? I tend to be sort of in between 28E and 28F. But yeah, unlined especially is going to be dependent on natural shape (which is why I'll never be perfectly round in it).

    Fits

    This bra fits me if I put it on the tightest band clip and use a racer back clip for support, the straps are too wide for me and the band is too loose for me, but finally the wires are just right for me. so I'm happy with it.

    BLACK colorway

    • Thank you for your review! I've never thought about using a racer back clip to get more support, I'm going to have to try that. I think we might fit in bras the same way. Have you tried Cleo's Marcie yet? I love how it fits in the cups but the band loses it's elasticity too fast to really make for a long lasting bra. However, Panache's Andorra has the best, most durable band ever but the cups have a conical fit, and the lace is atrocious under shirts without a cami. Have you tried any other bras that have worked for you? I'm still questing for the perfect bra, but I should probably just learn how to sew one.

    • I quite liked the Marcie but it wasn't great for me the wires felt too wide. I'm trying the polish bras right now, theres so much trial and error in the sizing, that its turning out to be a rather long project, but I do think I'm having better luck with the polish brands. All I've worked out, is that I really need a 60 or 55 back in Ewa Michalak, the closest I've come to a good fit in Ewa Michalak is 65FF but the back is way too big. Comexim I think I must be a 55 J or K but I really have no idea right now. I've tried some 60 H Comexim bras and mostly the cup was too small and band too big, but the wires were much better size for me. Also I tried the Comexim "Snow Biustonosz" and "Basic Bra" in 65G and wierdly the band felt tighter than the 60's Comexims I had previosly tried, but they were still too loose in band and small in the cup for me, I'm not giving up though....

    Looks like a great fit - narrow wires & deep cups. I would prefer a longer wire - might try a 28F.
    Sheer black mesh - just great for summer evenings!
    Can recommend for average to narrow, even to projected FOB shapes.

    Hasn't set fit

    I have owned this bra for a couple of years now and it's still holding strong. A beautiful sheer appearance but practical enough to wear everyday. Good quality for the purchase price, I put only "Good" for comfort as the wires sometimes poke me on the side but they may be slightly too narrow for me.

    The shape is a little "pointy", which I don't mind, but this is not for someone looking for a round shape. I would say it fits true to size. The band is a little loose - at least compared to brands like Ewa Michalak and Fraulein Annie - and I wear it on ... tightest hooks. It hasn't stretched much during the time I have owned it.

    I would say the wires are on the narrow side and cups are deep. As I don't have a lot of upper breast fullness there is a little empty space there but not as much as it would bother me. On the other hand the center of the bra does not stretch and it cuts a little on my breast. A little note about the straps - I feel they are unnecessary wide for my size.

    This is a really sexy bra, and while I don't like sheer/unpadded/unlined bras, this one is kind of an exception.
    The cups are a strong mini mesh like thing, that prevents nipple show through. It would be even better for someone whose full on bottom with narrow boobs so that their nipple meets at the seams, but it works even without nipples meeting there.

    The cups are slightly the wrong shape for me - too deep and closed off at top, but this isn't terribly noticeable as its only slight. I wish the gore was narrower, and cups wider because I'm not sure how much of my tissue will stay in after scooping it all in.

    I'm not crazy about the shape it gives me, but it is quite natural and forward. The embroidery might show through shirts.

    The band is unusual for Freya, it's quite firm for a 28 in my opinion.

    Overall this is a nice bra. It would suit someone better whose probably full on bottom a bit with narrow boobs.

    While I was a 30DD, this bra only fit with an extender. Without it, the cups distorted and cut in. Otherwise, I liked this bra very much. The shape was good, and the fit was comfortable aside from the gore being too high and pokey.

    Fits

    The appearance of this bra is very nice, but the shape it give underneath clothes, is natural, I would say. I find that it is round for me, but not very lifted or very in front as in Cleo bras. Also, I think it enhace the size difference between my breasts when I wear it under clothes, which is strange.

    The underwires are a touch narrower than those in Cleo, which means they fit me perfectly. They are also sturdy and rigid, how I like.

    The cups fit me very good on my larger breast, on my smaller one it wrinkles because of the unfilled space left there.

    I have to ... tighten a lot the straps, I can't figure out why, in Cleo it isn't necessary to do this.

    The band is quite stretchy, even though it's 28 size (I wear 30 in Cleo), but it remains supportive, stays in place when I move and it doesn't ride up. It just feels stretchy.

    Maybe sheer bras aren't for me, as I have different nipple positions (one is lower than the other) and different breast. I would like the band to be lined, but it is meant to be sheer, so I guess it's part of design.

    I think I like more Cleo unpadded bras, because of their lift, support, shape, soft fabrics and prints, even though their underwires are a little wider than I need ( have an 1/2 cm extra width).
    Also, it can be a bother the high cut of the bra, because I need to wear high cut necklines and I'm not used, but now and then I like to have the breasts fully enclosed, so it's helpful in the end.

    Because of the shape of the lace, the cup wrinkles in the middle while cutting into my breasts at the edge.

    Pros: Very cute! Materials look/feel soft and delicate, but are very strong (especially the straps).

    Cons: Because of low body fat, it pokes into my sternum.
