So, the first time I wore this bra around my mother, she looked at me and said, "What? Did you get a boob job?" She wasn't joking either. This bra is shaped so that it holds all my tissue without pushing any into my armpits, or cutting across my breast tissue. With a low cut shirt, it gives a rounded, uplifted shape that's just about impossible to achieve with my small size. This bra doesn't push my boobs into each other, or smush them down...it's a very, comfortable, natural fit. The cup design is optimal for my body and breast shape the way push-up bump pads work for many other people. This is such a durable, comfortable bra, I will buy as many of these as I can afford. This fits me as well as Panache Porcelain (in 30DD) but the cups are not full-coverage (like the Porcelain), so this is perfect for low necklines.

I absolutely love this bra. It is so comfortable and is perfect for my wide roots, bottom heavy but shallow breasts.
The central gore was stabbing me initially but after some bending of the wires- it was fine.
The push-up padding was not as thin as I had expected but it is also not as thick as the ones you get in most high street shops! The padding did create quite some cleavage that I'm not used to! (Quite a pleasant surprise)
I have the freya deco plunge, soft cup and the strapless in 28d. I do quadboob slightly in the 28d strapless but in this 28dd half cup push-up ... model I was getting a quadboob! How crazy is that. Unfortunately this model is sold out everywhere I looked otherwise I might consider buying it in a nude/blue, maybe try on a 28e to see how it fits.
The band was definitely too loose on me which I was severely disappointed with. This band was much looser than the other deco bras! I had to stay on the last hook for the centre gore to tack! However it is such a good comfi bra - I will probably just get a rixie clip when the band wears out!
Two pieces of advice for Freya:
- please make more of these and make them in different colours!
-please make the bands true to size!! It was almost as if they took the wing measurements from the deco plunge and pasted those on the half cup (bearing in mind the half cup has a wider base than the deco plunge which is designed for those with narrow and talk roots)
- please make some 26 bands!!!!!!!!!
Bottom line: if you want to buy this try going down a band size and going up two or even three cup sizes!!

I have shallow breasts with a tall root. I typically wear a 30D and prefer a snug band, so since I've heard that Freya's bands are stretchy, I sistersized down to a 28DD. The wires are slightly wider (<1/4") than my breasts, and I believe I have an average root.
The cups don't suit my tall roots perfectly: there's a bit of a shape mismatch. You can only tell if you look closely. I get slight gapping near the gore, but I lack inner fullness.
That said, those are small gripes, and it is a GREAT molded t-shirt bra. It is incredibly comfortable and doesn't poke me in any weird ways, and I don't need to adjust anything. However, for those of you who are of a warm or darker complexion, the "nude" color is more of a light pink, so for me, it doesn't work under white shirts.
I will likely also buy this in black, it's perfect for everyday purposes.

It is slightly padded at the bottom of the cup, if your boobs are fuller at the bottom it can help even them out to the top a bit =)
Of course, I was denying anything above a D cup... It did not fit me so I gave it to my younger sister. Fits her fabulous!

Very nice bra, the wires were a little wide for me on the inside near the gore but manipulate them a bit and it fits perfectly!

Nice push-up. Gives great rounded shape. Little gaping on top.

This was probably the worst fitting bra I have ever tried on in my life. Ok maybe not that, but I had high expectations because was hoping it would work under my (non-strapless) wedding dress. (Yeah, I'm one of the rare women that hates dresses without straps.)
It's a wild understatement to say that this stabbed into my sternum. It poked inwards so viciously that I was convinced that it would break skin if I didn't take it off immediately. Literally stabbed through the heart. OUCH.
Otherwise the body of the cups was OK. However there some gapping along the top, and it didn't really work as pushup, further ... suggesting the cup was too large. Somehow, this bra is looser in the band than any of my 30D bras - the tightest setting worked with some riding up my back.
The final nail in the coffin is that the "nude" would be more accurately described as ivory. I'd say this would work as a nude bra only on the most untanned of pale people. I guess I should have expected this from a British brand.
EDIT: OK, for some really weird reason it fit me a whole lot better the second time around, when I was trying to decide whether it goes to the UPS store. The trick is to move the underwires around from the center to the side. Now, there's no stabbing, zero gapping if I stand straight (there's some gapping as I lean forward), and it pushes up right. I'm on the fence about whether it's the right level of pushup for a wedding - I have a feeling this look could get me kicked out of church. (My sister summarized this look as "No %^&* way is that natural.") It's still REALLY pale, though.

I've had this bra in 28F, 28E and now 28DD. I initially got the 28F and while I didn't quite fill the cups, I convinced myself the fit was close enough and my slightly bigger boob would quad-boob if I sized down to 28E. Well, I've lost about 15lbs over the past 2 years and along the way my bigger boob didn't look so great in the 28F either. So I sold the 28F and ordered a 28E which fit nicely at the time. 8 lbs lost later, the 28E stopped looking good as well. Sold it and got a 28DD on the ... way. I love everything about this bra except that the band is still too big and too stretchy. I also wonder if the underwire cuts into my breast tissue just a bit. I've been wearing 28Es and 28Fs which seem to have a wider underwire. I probably still have migratory tissue that needs to head toward the front. I want sizing help, so I'll get over some of my fears and post pics of me in this bra. Best fitting bra so far, but I need help - I know it's possible to be better.

Still has tags - fits the same as nude which I've already rambled on about. Within return window so I'll add more if I decide to keep it.
Short version - band too big, underwire may cut into tissue, but ultimately best fitting bra so far.
