I have the Freya Deco Moulded Half Cup Bra (4232), and I heard that the Ashlee was a slightly smaller version of it. I love my Deco Half Cup, but it does have a gap before scooping and swooping. It fits like a dream after scooping and swooping, but as the day goes on, my boobs unscoop and unswoop themselves. So, I hoped that the Ashlee would work better for me.
Like the Deco Half Cup, the Ashlee works pretty well for my wide rooted, shallow boobs. I do find that it is a little smaller than the Deco Half Cup. Unlike the Deco Half Cup, after scooping and swooping, there is a little quad boob. I think I would like it more if it didn't have the pushup padding. I'm am happy enough with just the moulded cups.
This was my first properly fitting bra, and sadly, I quickly outgrew it. The cups run small, presumably because of the built-in push-up pads. The band runs firmer than the deco plunges, and was a great fit.
The push-up half cups gave me a very nice cleavage, and the padding made my breasts look larger, which is a positive thing for me! This is a fantastic bra for smaller-breasted women with shallow, wide boobs. I really wish they still made this style, and that they went at least up to FF or G cups. For a t-shirt bra, it's absolutely adorable as well.
Upon opening up the box to see the Freya bra I had just ordered...I was PRAYING that the cups wouldn't be too big. My first reaction was, "These cups look too deep for me!" I tried it on to find that the band is made several sizes too large, I immediately had to start it on the smallest hook. (Band isn't a huge issue since I usually have to alter bands anyway)
The cups seemed too big at first. There was a lot of gaping at the top so I tried to adjust myself accordingly, tightening the straps and scooping all my tissue in. My ...larger side seems to fit pretty good in it and there is a teeny bit of gaping for my smaller boob (Also not a big deal).
The only huge problem I had was that was that center gore came up really really high, and it was severely uncomfortable there. I will probably need to chop the wires off this area in order to wear it...
The shape I'm getting is incredible, so I'm definitely going to keep it.
The bra is gorgeous with the stripped pink pattern and bow details. I purchased this on clearance from Bare Necessities. Read more 102 more words
