I admit defeat. Moulded diagonally cut cups do not work for my soft, rather empty, small breasts. I hardly have any upper breast fullness. I read the reviews and kind of knew it going in, but wanted so badly to find something that gives great cleavage. This isn't the one. I have gapping on the sides, where strap meets cup, and along the first inch or so of the cup. With a good swoop and scoop, I also have quadboob on the lower inches of cup, where cup meets band.
That said, for differently shaped breasts, I can see this bra being extremely flattering. I love the rich ... purple color. It's supportive, rounding, and pretty comfortable from what I can tell. The J-hook is such a great idea for achieving maximum cleavage. I love that feature, but imagine it means using extra care when washing, so as not to snag delicate fabrics.The fit improves slightly for me when I hook the J-hook.
This is my first experience trying on a Freya bra. The first thing I noticed was that the 30 band feels much larger than it does on any other brand I have tried thus far (which has only been a handful, but still...). I had to put it on the tightest hook and can still fit a whole hand between it and my body if I really try. This seems strange, because it only measures slightly bigger than others I have measured, but I guess that difference in combination with this particular style, allows this band to fit differently. I would downsize the band in the future and try a 28, especially since everybody talks about how their bands are known for stretching. The cups seem to run true to size, but please don't take my word for that because it's so hard to judge when the bra just fits all wrong and I have yet to find something that does fit properly. My estimated size here and on abrathatfits is 30DD/E.
The gore lies flat and sits comfortably on my sternum. The sides, near my armpits, don't come up quite far enough for me and allow for all sorts of spillage of breast tissue in that area.
