    Used to fit

    I'm very fond of this bra. While I find the patterning and colours rather bland, it's very comfortable and fits well. The band is stretchy. I would prefer it to be tighter, but it still smooths out my silhouette in the back. It gives the breasts a very round appearance. Like the other Freya longlines I have worn, this one has seams across the cups that stick out through my clothing. The bottom will also flip up if I wear my bra too low; if I wear it higher, I usually do not have this problem.

    This bra was slightly small in the cup when I first purchased it, it is too small in both the band and the cup now. I find the construction of the cups very similar to Freya's regular padded half cups, which for me is a bit too shallow, especially at base of the cups. But the shape is very lovely, a nice compromise between round and natural with some "cake" cleavage.

    I had some trouble with the longline band scrunching up (not rolling, but bunching) in the front due to my high tummy after pregnancy. I think I would have preferred if Freya had used some sort of stays, even softer plastic ones, or silicone edging to keep to band in place. I did not have any problems with the band stretching out, and never moved to the second set of hooks, but I honestly did not wear it all too often.

    I have a shallow/wide root. I ordered this knowing a 30 band would be too big, and indeed I can comfortably wear it on the tightest hooks, but I intend to alter it eventually to reduce the elasticity.

    The cups fit the same as the 28F Just Flew In longline on me - I don't 100% fill them out (better right before my period), but the wires are the right width, and the top of the cups are nice and open, a good cut for shallow shapes.

    The cups have 2 vertical seams that show slightly under a thin T-shirt, but I don't mind since overall it gives a nice rounded shape.

    Note: the 30 band has 3 columns of hooks (whereas the 28 Just Flew In had only 2). It has really pretty fabric shoulder straps, whereas both the Ivy and Just Flew In longlines have ugly, wide "industrial-strength" elastic straps.

    Tried this on in a Debenhams, didn't buy it in the end as after wearing it for a few (..ahem, ok, maybe 20-30 minutes I was agonizing over whether to get it or not, plus trying to attract attention from a fitting lady to get some advice etc!) minutes the underwires in the central gore had rubbed on the middle of my chest causing red marks and pain. Such a shame as fitted PERFECTLY elsewhere...very supportive fitting underband, lovely fitting cups...part of me is wondering if I would get used to it over time or if I just needed to readjust straps etc to allow the underband of the bra to sit lower down, this pulling the gore and wires down...hmm. Shame.

    The print is lovely. If you look closely, it's small white squares with a dot inside some of them. It's geometrically fun (if that makes sense). The biscotti color scheme and the white lace detailing is absolutely beautiful and is not tacky in any way (I may actually recommend this bra as a "nude" for tanner skinner people).

    The back band closes in 3 rows of 6 hooks - that's one extra row than the Freya Piper longline!! I must admit, the stretchy band does leave more to be wanted, but I feel like the extra set of hooks makes up for this. Mind ... you, I am a 26.5" underbust and I think that the Freya Carys is stretchy. This may actually mean that it is true to size and that I am a fool for thinking I could McGyver this bra into a smaller backband without a sewing machine.

    The vertical seaming on the cup is wonderful for full on top/shallows and, to me, the Freya padded halfcup style is unrivaled by the Freya unpadded balconette styles. (However, I did briefly try the Freya Ginny and I can't say the same about the diagonal seam on that padded halfcup).

    *** Also, the straps aren't the traditional ugly Freya straps. They match the pattern on the bra body and they're smooth and thin with a slight padding - very comfortable and don't dig in!
