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.
