This bra is totally cute, I love the colour. The pink and green go great together. (I bought the pistachio colour).
The bra is completely unlined which makes it really sexy and seethrough. The seams lie very flat and are undetectable under t-shirts, although I think the embroidery may show through.
It gives a nice natural shape as well.
My only complaint is that the underwires end shorter on the side (2.5cm shorter on the sides) than where the cups end.
Fit: The band is slightly tight, but a 30 would be to big I think. This combined with the shorter wires make it a ...bit uncomfortable, but I think it'll be more comfortable as it loosens up a bit.
The cups fit great, like a glove. Except on one side, where there's wrinkling, but that's kind of expected if you're not the same size on both sides.
Edit: After wearing this bra for a day, I'm concluding that the wires are a bit too narrow. I think it would be perfect if they were 12 or 13cm wide. Oh well, it's still cute, I just need to stretch the wires a bit.
If you have a narrow root, this bra could work for you.
Update: I don't wear this bra anymore. Turns out the cups were too small and it gave me a pointy shape. Read more 121 more words
I got this in a swap, so the band was a little more stretched than it would be otherwise. It still fits just fine on the second hook. And I like it, a lot. It's supportive, comfortable, not itchy (after a wash) and looks sexy.
My only complaint has to do with the color. There is little contrast between my skin and the pistachio color, and because the mesh is basically transparent...my nipples stand out through fabric that's at all on the thin side. Forget seams; my areolas are the headlights. But whatever, I just can't expect this to be invisible under white shirts.
Also, the center gore nags at me by the end of the day. I think it's itchy or otherwise digging into my skin, and I'm not sure exactly why.
The Freya Eleanor Plunge is a see-through mesh style that could be quite comfortable in a hot/humid climate. I'm not a huge fan of completely see-though bras, and didn't find this to provide enough coverage overall with the mesh to keep it. The black mesh bra with red accents (incl. straps) and delicate embroidery is very pretty. The band is snug and firm for a 32 but not overly tight. The straps have ample room for adjustment and are a good width for comfort. The bra provides okay shaping for my omega, pendulous breasts, even though I don't fill out the cup bottoms. The underwire under the arms isn't tall enough to keep the ladies enveloped all day.
Tried this bra, which is fairly smaller than my 32GG/H I usually hunt for, based solely off of the measurements. While it does cut into my boobs at the top, everything else seems to be spot on! Since I'm currently in the process of loosing weight, I think I'll hang on to it for now just in case. Besides that, it is a VERY lovely bra!
1) Perfect underwires on this--they follow the lines of my breasts perfectly, making this bra very comfortable.
2) I love that this bra is not padded! It's very feminine, and sexy to boot.
3) Sometimes the top of the cup does dig into my breast tissue.
4) The only consistent problem I seem to have with @Freya is that I usually have a little bit of extra fabric at the bottom of the cups. The rest of the cup fits great, and I'm thinking it's because I am more full on top _and_ my breasts are very firm, so they just don't mold into the basin of the cup.
i received this bra in a giveaway from a generous user here on bratabase! i was pretty sure this bra wouldn't fit me right without an extender- but i wanted to at least try since the cup width and depth looked promising, and the altered overlapped gore sounded like just the thing id been after. i was mostly looking to see if this could be a bra i'd be able to alter to fit me, since the bones of it looked about right. it seems like the cup proportions always look good in a 30Gish size, but of course then the band is too small. i cant seem ...to find any 32FF/34F bras with these proportions!
as i expected, i do need an extender and that skews the straps a bit on the back half. on the front half theyre actually not too wide which is nice. otherwise the extender inst uncomfortable, so that alone wouldnt be a huge issue. the overlapped gore looks great and solves the issue i generally have of the two sides of the gore trying to flip on each other.
the cups are perfect in width (wooo!) and i fill out the bottom wonderfully. on the down side, there is the gaping/quadboob combo i usually experience in 3 piece cups. ive got tall breasts, and im beginning to think its my low apex that causes the gaping and not that i'm shallow (aka my nipple sits lower than most bras are designed for). in this bra its mostly gaping, and if i pinch the excess space at the apex and top, it pulls the top edge of the cup flush and looks like it will cut in.
i will probably see if i can alter the cups on this to work better for me, without having to permanently change the bra. if it looks too daunting, i will likely pass it on to another person to have a go at it. as it is now, i cant wear it because the fit issues are pretty obvious under clothing, but i hope to change that!
It fits me perfectly and is perfectly comfortable. The only problem I have ever had with them is that the under wires tend to pokes through the fabric under the arms so treat them very carefully! My Freya reviews will get monotonous. They all fit the same and have the same problem.
