Very nice bra. Great support and definitely keeps the girls in place. Freya is a funny brand with the unlined cups though... they are way to pointy so I have to sew in the tip of the cup to create a more natural curve. Love the color and the wider straps help to not dig into my shoulders so much.
The width of the wires on this one is just right for me - not too wide, not too narrow. It has a very good amount of projection and gives a more rounded shape, not cone. I'm not super fond of the mesh on the top of the cup though - it's a little loose and can wrinkle when I lean forward, despite my being FoT (this has to be the first bra where this has happened). It would be much better if it were stretch fabric instead of what it is - there's zero stretch to it at all. The band on this one is definitely firmer/smaller than the other Freyas I've tried and the cup size a little on the generous side. A decent bra, but not as comfortable/quality as many other Freyas. Glad I got it on sale.
I'd describe myself as an even 2/5, with lots of inner fullness, some projection, narrow and short roots.
This is the first bra I've bought in a long time that fits. I like it, but don't love it due to the shape. Yes, it's kind of pointy. It reminds me of the white Balis with the fabric bow across the cups that were the only bras available in large cups and 32 bands in my earliest bra wearing days. I hated those bras. But I don't hate this Freya. I'm confused.
About this bra. The wires and cups run nice and low under ...my arms with no stabbing or scraping (this is usually a problem for me in large enough cups). The lower part of the cups is opaque (not see through), made from a soft but not stretchy knit (much softer than my Freya Patsy). The upper cup is made for a non-stretchy mesh with a lace pattern embroidered on it and reinforcement at the top. This top part is somewhat see through.
It took me a minute to get used to the unlined cups after mostly wearing molded and lined bras for years. It is supportive and comfortable. It will probably be much cooler in the summer.
The depictions of the colorway are accurate, and you'll probably either love it or hate it. My inner 13 year old loves it, my outer 40 something is amused by it, so I like it. Read more 146 more words
So the wires on this bra are about a cm wider then they need to be and the lacy top panel gapes like a motherfucker. Other than those two issues this bra is a delight; clearly I have not yet mastered my size. Let's see what going down a cup size does.
