Out of the box, this bra is uncomfortable. The center gore digs into my sternum, and the wires just dig in all around. The band is uncomfortable and not very stretchy. The straps aren't too far apart. I can say that for it. At least not comfort-wise. They still show under tank tops though.
Shape-wise, this bra is pointy. It looks a little weird. Now this could be due to my own natural shape, but the bra does nothing to curb that. I've read sizing down a cup in this kind of bra can help but I'm not sure I'd fit in a size down.
This bra is made for depth ...and is pretty good at accommodating immediate projection. I do have a fair amount of wrinkling, which leads me to believe it may be better suited to someone who is Full On Bottom, where I am more FOT/Even. But my breasts don't push the bra downward at all.
I decided to hang onto it because I really wanted a soft bra. I read about bending wires sometimes helping and I have done a lot of bending on this bra and now... it's wearable. I bent the center out, so the gore no longer digs in, and I rounded the wires to fit more closely with my body which makes the band and wires more comfortable.
Also, not in love with the pattern. Read more 120 more words
First of all, I love the looks of this bra. The feather design with the black lace topper is one of my favorite designs Freya has ever done. The cups are the silky material and the band is a matching printed mesh.
This bra checks every fit box correctly (except straps, but nothing ever fits there for me) but something still does not feel quite right to me. It looks lovely, no pulling or bulges, but I still find myself fidgeting with it constantly. My best guess is that it is just barely too shallow for me at the bottom of the cup. I wish it worked, because it is really a great design.
This is my first bra in the correct size, and I couldn't have asked for a better bra. It's gorgeous, high-quality, and super comfortable for my shape (full on bottom, relatively close-set, wider root). The gore took a while to get used to since I've been wearing 34Cs my whole life, but with a little bit of underwire coaxing and bending, I've gotten it to the perfect fit. The underwire is the perfect width for me, and it's much more comfortable than stuffing myself into the tiny bras I've been wearing. The cups are soft, and I'm not getting any of the cone boob ...that a few people have had issues with. The large straps are also a plus, and even though they're kind of wide-set (I'm getting a little armpit fat squishing out the sides), they're not uncomfortable.
I do wish I had bought a 30F instead though because I'm using the smallest hook on the 32F. I wasn't expecting the band to be as stretchy as it is. I was getting a little bit of gappage at the top of the cup, but with proper swooping and scooping as well as tightening the band, I've filled the cups quite nicely. I'll try and edit this after I've broken the bra in some more. Read more 114 more words
Favorite bra! So cute. Gives me a kind of retro pointy shape but I'm a retro kind of girl. I'm smaller on the right so the right cup wrinkles a little at the top. It's not noticeable under clothes though. Band is firm but not uncomfortable. Only issue is that the high-contrast print shows through thinner t-shirts. Unlined, so it wouldn't be a good choice for ladies with prominent nipples (mine are really flat so it doesn't matter).
Um, so I am goddamn in way too much love with this bra. Really frilly frou frou pink and red bras and whatever bras are okay, they're and all pretty and shit and I'll wear them... but I'd rather wear this. BECAUSE OHHH MAAAHHH GODDDDDDD.... THE CUTE PATTERN, THE FEATHERS. I DIE. And with just the right amount of lace. it is PERFECT for me. I wish all bras were this combination of cute.
It is so perfectly cute that I actually already bought the matching boyshort panties. (which fit perfect) So... I don't really care if the bra fits super well.
However I am ordering the next size up. My boobs fill this, but it cuts in on top, especially in my bigger boob. It also seems like underarm fat is escaping on the side that the cups can't contain... so either the bra it totally wrong for my boobs and this is the right size or I fit the next size up.
The design of this bra is absolutely gorgeous - interesting and a little bit cheeky without resorting to overly showy colours, shiny/textured materials or raised ribbons.
This bra fits me quite well, but not as perfectly as the Freya Deco I bought in the same size at the same time - however, I generally prefer unlined cups, so it was good to have. Like on many bras, the straps like sliding down my shoulders unless I tighten them more than I should. The cups both also wrinkle a little bit and aren't quite full at the top (on my bigger side, the wrinkling is very minor, but on my smaller side it is quite noticeable) It is not enough that I could go down a size, but noticeable. It is very comfortable and supportive.
