Didn't believe the hype about this as I've never really got on with these foam-lined t-shirt bras OR Freya as a brand, but I thought I should try it and see. I took reviewers advice and went down a band size, but stuck to my usual cup size, and though it was slightly tight on the first two wears, as it stretch it turned out to be perfect.
So I finally saw what all the fuss was about. Not only does it provide great support and give a good cleavage, it also has a really great shape under clothes. It doesn't look huge on - the uninformed would probably think I was wearing a C cup.
Most importantly, nothing rubs. I have a huge problem with the centre gore on plunge styles - only one or two bras ever have not rubbed in some way after a days wear. This is one of those bras. Totally worth the money and lives up to the hype. Well done, Freya!

The wires are a little too narrow for me. The gore is a little too wide (but not too tall).
Narrower straps than on the 32F (5/8" vs 3/4").
Bottom line: the cups quad in the center, gape at the top.

I brought this bra for a dance costume. Neither the shape nor the size are ideal for me (projected FoB 32F) but I will alter it into a halter-neck and that way it fits better.

It's comfortable. Although if you don't like the straps placed wide apart, and landing closer to the end of the shoulder than the neck, you won't like it. It's good for people who like more open necklines, though.

I like the wire length and core height of this bra. Unfortunately it seems to be too loose in the band for me. Too stretchy. It seems to be a comfortable bra otherwise. I just wish it fit . The cups also seem to curve outward toward the top instead of laying flat against my breasts I bought this bra used and it had been bleached so maybe its from being dried in the dryer. I think this bra just isn't a good fit for my FOB breasts.

Comfortable bra. Good under T-shirts and clingy materials.

This bra is very comfortable, and does a really great job at pushing up and out. I like that I can adjust the straps a lot, I seem to always need to shorten them by quite a bit.
Very comfortable bra that looks smooth under clothes. The band is MUCH firmer than I'm used to, which is good since I like to feel like the band is fitted securely around my ribs.
After wearing this bra a few times, I got used to the firmness of the band and realized that it really wasn't tight enough. My underbust measurement is 29", so I had the band altered to a 30. Will be going for 30 bands in the future.

Such a nice bra, but just didn't work with my shape. Band I think may be a bit stretched out (bought used) and I already have a good-fitting nude bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

Has round, smooth cups so it gives a nice appearance under almost any clothes. Some bras seem to have higher gores in higher cup sizes but this has a nice low center. The straps stay put and have a good amount of stretch. The band has a very firm stretch, gives good support and stays put.
This bra feels tighter than some, like I need to break it in. I didn't like the amount of side boob this bra gave the appearance of in clothing, it made me look more wide in the upper torso than other bras do. So I took ... in the upper center gore to pull some of that in. There isn't much fabric there to work with, the gore is pretty slim, but it did improve the appearance significantly. Also, the cups are not padded but they are thick enough that I wish there were lace or mesh at the edges because in thinner shirts the top of the cup shows pretty bad.
Overall this is a well made, supportive bra that is almost plunge-y enough for cleavage (on some it probably works great for that!).

This review is for the ocean color.
I picked this up for $10 on clearance at my local Dillards, along with a 30F deco in nude (for $5 - yays!) I've got a 26" underbust at the larger end of my normal weight fluctuations, so a 32 band is uncomfortably large on me. I know it's generally recommended not to alter bra bands down so far but, for $10, I didn't mind altering the band to see how it went. The fit was set for the unaltered size.
I was afraid this cup size would be too big because I always thought my breast shape was primarily bottom heavy, ... and I was getting a little gaping on the 28F at the top. The wires are actually just too narrow on the 28F, and getting this larger wire width seemed to fix the gaping problem. I think I have a shallow breast shape as described by venusian glow - my breasts aren't really large but they cover most of my chest pretty much up to my clavicles. I can't say this would work well on all shallow shapes - it seems it's suggested it doesn't, actually - but perhaps it works fairly well for shallow shapes in this size range.
The band is too large as purchased, but was altered down to stretch to approximately 27 inches. Starting with a smaller band size would be ideal, but it fits pretty well as it is now. This bra was compared to a 30F nude deco I purchased at the same time and the cups do not seem to be spaced or scaled any differently between the two. The only notable difference is the cups on the nude 30F appears to be a little bit taller. The cups on this ocean 32E might be a *tiny* bit more shallow, but I'm not sure if it's due to normal differences between sister sizes or differences between colors. I think I've read elsewhere the nude runs a little larger than the other colors.
Overall, I'm very happy to have tried a larger size and definitely see more decos in my future.
