My first of two Freya longlines, I was quite pleased with it, but not as pleased as I was with the Pansy.
The band is very snug, and I had put on quite a bit of weight over Christmas, so it was uncomfortable the first time I wore it. However, I'm losing the weight and it's far more comfortable now. The band isn't very stretchy, and as it's a longline and I'm a bit squidgy, the bottom has a tendency to roll up when I sit down.
The cups are a TINY bit too small for big boob, but they're just about perfect for small boob. I ... also think that once I've dropped the remaining 2.5 kilos of Christmas flub that the big boob will sit more comfortably.
This bra is a bit more shallow than I had anticipated, but I don't find it causes many issues. It gives a gentle, uplifted cleavage rather than bum-crack cleavage like a Deco.
Straps are soft and fully adjustable. I'm quite short with a short torso, so fully adjustable straps are very important for me.
Six hooks but only two sets of them - might be trouble if you've got a very small ribcage and worry about stretch.
It's a shame this bra doesn't go past a G cup; I don't know why brands outside of Curvy Kate fail to recognise the desire for lightly padded or moulded cups in larger sizes.
