The Freya halfcups have generally treated me well, bit I might have sized up (put on enough weight) to need a 28f these days. I am somewhat shallow to averagely projected, and very wide and tall rooted. I think I might like a tiny bit more projection here and a little more width would not hurt either. The bra itself is very pretty. Many would be thrilled to hear that the straps are fully adjustable. My boobs are very close set and you can see in the pic that even though the wires are practically touching at the top, one is still resting on boob. It's not uncomfortable though.
This bra is a bit too narrow and projected for my shape. It does give lovely uplift and a great shape though. The top of the cup rolls outward just a smidge, making it not work under clothes at all. I think it may be a manufacturing defect, as it's much worse on one cup than the other. It's an awesome print, and the polka dot straps are super cute.
Despite a bit of quad on my larger side, this bra fits quite comfortably. It fits about as well as my 60G/65F Comexim 3-part half cups. The only real problem is the bottom of the band - it's constantly flipping up due to the lack of boning that longlines often have. This is apparently a common problem with Freya longlines. I wonder if it would be better if I went up to a 30 band.
I've been wanting one of these bras since I first saw it over a year ago when I was in a completely different size. The print is exactly my style, and the little buttons on the gore are so cute. I glad I didn't manage to get one until now because it would have been much too large for me now had I bought one then!
This bra looks great on, but just isn't comfortable. Maybe it's just the longline style, but I feel constricted, and the outer wires and seams pinch my ribs as the day goes on. The cup separation is too close, as well -- when I take the bra off, the wire marks along the inner arc of my breasts are almost an inch away from my IMF, although they follow it perfectly from the base of my breasts up to my armpits. Not sure if this is really a problem, since the bra looks great and supports well, but it means I'm not quite filling the inside edge of the lower cup. The upper edge of the cups fit perfectly without any gapping or quad boob, and the straps stay put and are incredibly comfortable, if a little wide. It's a well-made bra.
Measurements were taken after about a year of use. When I first got this bra it bit great and was my favourite one. However, I not notice that the bottom of the cup is too shallow and causes some weird distortion. It was some what fixes by loosening the straps completely. The wires sit about a thumb width outside my IMF. Feels small, love the shelf look it give though.
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. Read more 136 more words
