As a (regularly) 28GG/H gal, I have had massive trouble finding a strapless/multiway bra and a longline that fits well. This bra killed two birds with one stone - I now have a workable strapless/convertible bra that is also a longline, so I am happy with this bra
Technically, I am sized out of my preferred size, but the band on the 30G is snug enough that on the smaller set of hooks, the bra stays up through even the most enthusiastic jumping jacks, and I can comfortably wear it on the larger hooks with straps or for less active pursuits. The cups on the ... 30G are also generous enough to easily contain my usually 28H boobs. I have a lot of projection but a thin layer of tissue right up to my clavicles - many strapless bras are simultaneously too shallow and cut in at the top - this one doesn't have either problem, though it could use a tiny bit of extra projection right at the bottom.
This bra has two different positions for the multiway straps, both front and back. I find that many bras in my size have their straps set further apart that the average shirt, so it is nice to have the option of a narrower setting. The cups have a nice sling in the cups, I presume to help prevent boobs from sliding the cups east-west.
While this bra fills a very important niche in my wardrobe, and as a result I am happy with it, it nonetheless has some downsides:
* The floral detailing on the front, which seemed like a really neat detail on the promotional pictures, looks washed out and almost like accidental staining in person. The bra itself is also less of a yellow-cream, and instead an ivory/off white
* Like many Freya bras, the quality of materials and contruction did not impress me in this bra. The cups on my brand-new bra already have a couple tiny snares, the straps are simple satin elastic and are very slippery, and the front of the band curls up.
* For reasons unknown, this bra only has 2 columns of hooks. Since I bought a band size up from my usual, I am on the smallest right off the bat, but even in a properly fitted bra, I would prefer 3+ rows.
