It best caters to people who have slightly narrow roots, slightly above average overall projection (but immediately shallow), and an FOT and/or tall rooted shape. If you feel like the Cleo Marcie was a good fit you will like this one too.
Appearance & Construction Fabric content: 66% polyester, 20% elastane, 14% nylon/polyamide. This bra is unlined with three-part cup construction. The cups are made from an opaque, printed, non-stretch material, with the upper section being embroidered, sheer, non-stretch mesh. The embroidery can show through a bit on fitted tops. The wings are a slightly sheer, printed, stretch mesh. The straps are made of a thick, opaque, stretch material, with the print continued on the front half of the straps and the back made of a thick white fabric with criss-cross stitching. The straps can be shortened past the point where the print starts. ... The Lollipop color has a white background with raspberry colored bow print. The raspberry color is deep and bright, not at all neon. There are satin ribbon bows at the center gore and where the straps meet the cups. The bows are pale purple with white polka dots. The back fastens with two rows of three hook-and-eye closures.
Fit This bra was a bit too loose in the band on the tightest hook (expected), but the center gore did lay flat. There was a slight amount of bulging (quad-boob) on the left side (my larger side), but the cup didn't appear to be cutting into my breast tissue. The right side seemed to fit well. I didn't notice any gaps or puckering, and the top mesh section laid flat without cutting in or gaping. The shape was pointy, but shortening the straps helped reduce the issue somewhat. The shape was also a little droopy, but tightening the band and straps helped with that as well. Wearing a correctly-fitting band may help with these issues. My underbust is 31.5 inches when measured very tightly, so a 32 or possibly even 30 band would be a better fit for me. (This bra was on sale with limited sizes when I purchased it, or else I would have gotten a smaller band in the first place.) The material was soft and smooth, and the bra overall seemed comfortable except for the straps cutting into the front of my armpits a little (a common issue for me). Read more 265 more words
When I bought this bra it fit perfectly, apart from the slightly tight band, but now it is just too small overall, especially on my bigger side. I don't think I gained weight in the meantime. A shame that I never got to wear it. Love the print and the colour, so will look for the same in 28F.
Freya bras are always stretchy. I went down a band size and this is great. I thought the cups looked too deep but it gives me a good shape. The bad part is that after wearing it all day I got red angry marks on the side and it was digging into the sides and middle of my breasts. Very pretty but too painful. I love the thick straps though.
I'm getting some degree of torpedo boob with this bra due to the extreme uplift. I think it looks nice under clothes, though, and the seams don't appear to show. The pattern does show up. I think I have fairly close set boobs and the gore was battling it out with them and wouldn't lay flat. If I pushed it flat, I did not quad out or anything, but it would sit on tissue. The band feels very comfy and supportive. I did size down as I'm typically a 32 band. It encases my boobs quite nicely in that there is no jiggle and I find it rather slimming under clothes.
3 part cup that has very cute accents on the straps and center gore. The style isn't the most flattering for fuller breasts, and the seaming is visible through clothes. Great fashion bra but not an everyday style for me.
This is my favorite and best fitting bra. I've owned it for a while, so the band may have stretched out. A 30 band is more comfortable in most other bras for me. The mesh fabric on the sides and back is very stretchy. Many other bras I try have straps that are too wide-set, but this one is perfect. It is also very supportive and makes my boobs look good.
