This bra gives a nice, uplifted, natural shape. With many unlined bras I end up with a very pointy shape, but this one is round enough for me to feel comfortable in. The material itself is also very comfortable. My breasts are close set and full on the bottom, and the center gore on this bra is low enough to tack without sitting on my breast tissue. The lace up top also sits nicely, but there's enough stretch to it that I think it might work well for women with more upper fullness, too.
This bra fits except that the cup depth at the apex is too deep for me, I could easily alter it, but I will try to sell it first. The fabic is so cute and not scratchy at all. The band is a little tight for me, but I usually wear a 30/32 band.
This is one beautiful bra. I love the Japanese-inspired print, the coordinating bows, and the wavy lace. However Freya plunges and I are not a good fit. Firstly, they are built for a more narrow width root. I have solved this by not-so-gently pulling the wires wider to fit me. Secondly, the cups are cut for a more projected or more upper-fullness person than I. There is not much I can do about that. I tried to show in the last picture where there is some bunching up of fabric at the lace. The shape it gives is interesting. It really brings in the sides of my wide boobs and makes them more front and cone shaped. I'm not quite sure where that volume goes, since I'm still not filling out the top. Despite this, I love this set (found the panties!!) and will be keeping it.
So yeah, me and unlined Freya bras, we don't get on so well.
This one sits too low on my chest, below my IMF. Along with the empty space this causes at the bottom of the cups, there's also a lot of bagginess in the lace at the top of the cups near the straps. It's also much too wide, which surprises me as I've always heard Freya bras are pretty narrow. It gives me very little shape and support, and I kind of feel like my boobs are swimming in the abyss when wearing this bra. I did wonder whether going down a size might improve it, but I don't think it's a close enough fit to be worth the effort - I think it's just a shape mismatch.
Surprisingly then, I'm planning to return it. However I'm sure it would look very pretty on someone it actually fits, as it's a nicely made bra.
Super cute bra with all the typical quirks of unlined Freyas. Love the print and the very soft materials. The band runs big and is quite stretchy, the shape when worn is pretty natural with a slight pointyness rather than the hemispherical shape of molded bras. For me, the fit was good but not perfect. The gore is a little pokey, and there is a little too much space at the apex of the cup, but the top edge is also a bit too closed. I personally prefer a little less coverage, especially in a small-to-medium size like 30F, but if your breasts tend to escape from bras this would probably be a good choice.
During my pre-period week when my breasts are a bit bigger, this bra fits perfectly. The wires are perfect, I fill the cups without any quadboob or wrinkling, and nothing digs in or hurts. The shape is more pointy than rounded, but I prefer it that way. The straps are very wide, but since they have the same lovely pattern as the cups, I don't mind https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I really like this bra, and it fits quite well. My standard complaint regarding the width of the straps stands: They are just a little too wide, though they don't fall off my shoulders. Also, I find that the lace panel at the top of the cup is a little stretchy - not where it meets the rest of the fabric cup, or along the top edge, but in the middle of the panel. This creates a bit of a bulge in the breast shape - nothing too noticeable under your shirt, but it is definitely there.
This bra is very cute - the fabric print, the little bows ...(on the centre gore and on the straps) and is quite comfortable. The wires are quite low under the arms, so there is no uncomfortable poking. The decorative edging I find does sometimes curl under which can be a little irritating, or itchy, at times, but overall, I don't mind.
I have had this bra for a couple of months now, and as it was my primary bra during that time, I have noticed that the band has stretched out a bit. I have to wear it on the second set of hooks already, but the band is still quite firm. Read more 100 more words
