Bra is very cute, a lovely lavender with black lace. The cups on this 30G are a good fit, (much better than the 30FF I had previously tried), yet I don't think they are completely compatibly with my shape. The cups are lightly lined, but I'm not sure if the lining would be thick enough to stop show through.
Band fits best on the middle hooks. Underwires aren't the most comfortable, and it seems like they ride a bit low. I think this may be a result of the breast tissue pushing the cup slightly down because the cup isn't quite deep enough at the bottom (right above the wire). The center gore doesn't quite touch my sternum, it sits out enough so that I can slide my index finger in. Straps are set too wide for me (which is not uncommon) but a strap accessory in back would fix this.
I have decided to return the bra. While it is cute, I have others that are quite a bit more comfortable, and comfort to me is extremely important.
bought bra as very used, so take band length with a grain of salt. to me the band seems still quite firm, so it may not be as far from a new one as expected, but still, be aware. review to come later- since buying this i haven't worn it, because the first time i tried to it didnt turn out well. if i remember correctly, it was much too wide and also too shallow. may try bending the wires, but unsure if that will help much.
**EDIT** finally around to reviewing this! band feels firm when worn, though not super supportive in my opinion. i think thats due in ...part to the worn out nature of this bra, and also to the material of the band. its the mesh stuff that freya often uses in their half cups. im a squishy gal and i dislike the feel of it, i like something thicker and sturdier. when its a thinner mesh with two strips of elastic at top and bottom, it always makes me feel lumpy, and those elastic bands are sturdier than the mesh so it feels awkward.
the cups are definitely too wide, though it mainly feels like empty space and less of a forward shape rather than a huge problem fit wise. the straps are in my pits, but i think i will bend the cups and see if i can get them narrower. it might mess with the band length then, but i will try it and see. because of how worn it is (bought it this way), its not as uncomfortable as usual to have the straps in my pits, because theyre softer. not sure if they will be a problem at work where im more mobile. the gore is low enough that i dont notice it being too wide, and the wings are a bit too low but its not a big issue for me.
all in all, its an okay bra, and i mainly bought it so i could have bras to wear to work (where theyll get wrecked) instead of wearing out my daily bras that i like. itll serve that purpose, and thats all i really want.
*UPDATE:4/18/17* so far i havent worn this much, if at all, because i find the band too snug and too flimsy. might still keep it just in case i lose a bit of weight, but im probably not reaching for it anytime soon. Read more 296 more words
the cups are too wide - something i didn't expect from freya - and the band isn't stretchy, contrary to popular legend, but my ribcage is 33 and I think 34 would have been too loose. the wires are low on me. I think the cup is too small but I'm not sure going up a cup size would help. I have armpit fat, however, so maybe a cup up would be helpful.
My first experience with Freya (I've tried Deco, but only it the shop). Wow, the band is pretty stretchy! The bra is nice, but it gives me strange shape (http://media.bratabase.com/cache/82/4e/824e03659de83d65be617824f1ccc5d8.jpg). The bra is too big in the cups (too much space), so it might be caused by it. Also the wires are too wide. And maybe it's problem of 4-part-cup style. I prefer rounded shape, so I will try two-part-cup or buy another Ewa's bra (probably on order). It looks better on the screen than in the real life. I will update this review, when my Freya Piper arrive. I order cup size down, so we will see. I will compare these. Stay tuned
Bra is very cute, a lovely lavender with black lace. Unfortunately the cups are a bit too small on this 30FF, but I think one cup size bigger would be a nice fit. The cups are lightly lined, but I kind of doubt that the lining is thick enough to stop show through.
Band fits well and firmly on loosest hook, and the underwires are not uncomfortable. Center gore doesn't quite touch my sternum, but I think this is because the cups are too small. Straps are set too wide for me (which is not uncommon) but a strap accessory in back fixes this.
This bra will be returned due to the cups being too small, however I have already ordered a 30G to try... I think it will be a much better fit.
