Alright, so I'll admit it, I've always thought Freya bras are adorable and have always been a bit sad that most don't come in my size, as well as the fact that the quality is supposed to suffer some in larger cup sizes. But this was $20 on amazon, so I bought it not expecting it to fit perfectly, but rather to have as a comfy bra for lazy days.
Well, it doesn't fit perfectly, but it sure is comfy!
The band is definitely on the stretchier side, but not as badly as I had been expecting. I think that had I sized down to a 34 it would have ... been too small for me.
The wires are too wide for me, though I'm quickly discovering that since wearing properly-fitting bras, tissue migration has caused me to realize my breasts are far more narrow than I had thought and most bras have wires that are too wide for me. These are definitely wider than any other bra I own. They are not uncomfortable in the least, though, and the sides do not come up too high - a problem that I have with a lot of bras.
The cups are technically a bit too shallow for me, and the gore doesn't tack - it does at the bottom, but at the top there's about a finger-width of space there. When I push it down, though, it doesn't cause any quadboob, so I'm assuming that's simply due to the soft wires that are supposed to be common in Freya's of this size range.
Straps are very wide-set - more so than any of my other bras. At first I wasn't sure they'd actually stay on my shoulders, but they feel a bit better while on.
In all, the bra doesn't quite fit me. But it's pretty, it was $20, none of the fit issues are big enough that I'd want to send the bra back, and hey. Now I have a nice, comfy bra I can wear on days that I'm just lounging around the house. So, overall, I'm keeping it.
