    Fits

    Style
    Nothing fancy but I definitely needed a black bra that doesn't cause too much attention under clothes.

    Sizing / fit
    I am impressed by how well this fits. I had a problem with the wires of my 30F Freya Rapture being way too wide and too flexible. These are more like cleo wires. They are really firm and somewhat narrower. So they follow my IMF more closely. The band is very snug, comparable to my Panache Jasmine in the same size. Maybe a 30E/F would have worked as well. The cups are true to size with a bit more space at the top compared to the Rapture and the fabric ... is thick enough to keep my nipples down even if it's cold. Overall it feels extremely supportive and makes a really nice round shape. Though not as round as my Cleo Marcie http://bra.pe/XYLq/ which is my new benchmark for roundness https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />

    Quality
    Everything feels really soft and comfy. The straps on my Freya Patsy are a bit rough and have seems that tend to chafe my shoulders. These are smooth and a bit thicker which feels soo much better. The same goes for fabric around the band which actually provides some support unlike the mesh in most of my cleo / panache bras. This also prevents the elastic from cutting in too much. But I guess I could also make it less breathable. So maybe it is more of a winter bra. I have it for about three month now and it didn't stretch out at all.

      This looks amazing on you! I love the colour of this bra (it's dark green right?), I've thought about getting it numerous times, but now that I see if "in real life", I want it even more!

    • 1

      No, it's actually black and the pink also looks a bit pale on the photos.

      Well it's still a nice looking bra, haha! I think they do make a green model if I am thinking of the right bra. Anyways, it looks good on you.

    • Thank you!

    • What is your snug measurement? I’m considering this bra but I’m unsure if if I should go 28F or 30E in it.

    • Calluna
      I measure 73.5 (28.94 inches) snug and 69.5 (27.36 inches) tight (exhaled). But I like my bands really snug.

    • aboobaccount my snug measurements run between 28.75 inches and 29.75 inches depending on who’s taking them. My tight is 28 inches to 28.75 inches but not sure if either were exhaled measurements. I’ve been in 32 bands for a while but have felt like most 32 bands are in the looser side and 30 bands feel a little bit too snug like I really need 31 which doesn’t exist. So I’ve been trying for tight 32s.

    • But I’ve been told that Freya bands run bigger now (compared with my ancient Pollyanna which was a 32DD) which is why I am considering the 28 bands with them.

    • Calluna This one doesn't run loose! It fits tighter then my Freya Petsy and Starlet. If your (exhaled) tight measurement is larger then mine then you will probably be fine in a 30. Especially if you don't have much padding around your ribs.

    • Thanks aboobaccount

    Didn't fit

    This bra looks so pretty in pictures, but in person... well I just find it unattractive. First off, the cups are way too big so there is fabric everywhere. But I think even if the cups fit ok, they provide so much breast coverage that it's just not sexy or pretty. I think this bra might look nice on smaller breast but it is definitely not designed for us larger breasted gals. Anyway, I'm going to be returning it for both size issue (cups too big and band a little small) and becasue I just don't like the look.

    32FF

    Didn't fit

    I recently remeasured myself and am building a new bra wardrobe. There aren't any lingerie shops where I live, that carry a large variety of bras (I really do live on a relatively remote island!) so I need to purchase them from the Internet (Thank you, ABTF and Bratabase!). As it is, I am still trying to figure out (finalise, would be the more accurate term) my correct bra size and shape. Incidentally, the bra size recommended by Bratabase was 34D - 34DD - 34E. I also ordered the Panache Tango Ii Balconnet Bra (3251) in 34DD, which has yet to arrive.

    This was the first bra ... from Bratabase's Bra Recommendations. Unfortunately, it wasn't an ideal fit. The cup being WAY too large, I didn't bother taking pictures. Strangely, the bottom of the cup was quite full! The gores dig uncomfortably into my sternum, less so under the armpits. The band was a tad too tight but not overly so, which leads me to suspect that to size up on the band could possibly result in a band that was too loose. I did the "upside down bra" test, the bra still felt slightly tight.

    All in all, this was a no-go. So, on to the next one! *fingers crossed*

    This is the first Freya bra that has fit me. I don't know much about the brand, except that I've noticed that band lengths can be all over the place. I've tried 28 band that fit and 30 bands. This one is a 30 band and its just right. Lace is not scratchy. I got the white color.

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    My shape: projected, but with tall, shallow roots; moderately narrow; soft breast tissue; maybe conical? Figuring that last one out, and also deciding if it matters.

    This bra: this bra is not a perfect shape match for me - the top lace section, while not ever-so closed, is not as forgiving as Freya Fearne and Afterglow. So it does come into conflict with my tall roots and on my smaller side especially I get that so-called George fold. However, as I went to take off in the fitting rooms, I noticed my shape from the side and that is why I decided to buy it. Freya bras usually make ... me quite pointy - a nice shape, but under some clothes it can emphasise my perhaps naturally cone-like shape. This bra makes my breasts look round, really round. Not orb-like, more of a natural round shape than that, but I love it. Under light loose tops - the kind which seem to show off every seam in every bra - this one disappears. The fold in the lace is invisible. But my breasts look great.

    So, one that ought to not work, doesn't perfectly, but also really really does!

    And and and - as other reviewers have said, this band fits TTS. The fabric is firm (but more comfy than my Cleo Marcie). I normally take a 28 in Freya, Cleo - the only brands I've tried - but hooked on the middle column this bra does not particularly move.

    28FF

    Didn't fit

    I sized down from my usual 28G for this since I heard Freya's padded half cups and decos run a bit smaller than their unlined offerings, and that was the correct move here. Love the white and pale orange colorway, the little polka dot bow accents are adorable. VERY snug band for Freya! Maybe they got a clue. Sub-28s would like this. I measured it at 27.5" stretched, and it doesn't feel like it'll stretch out easily.

    Wires are 5.5, cup depth is good, nice immediate projection. The lace is not stretch and does close in a bit, but not too much for ... me since I'm even-to-FOB. Not a good bra for FOT's. Technically, it fits pretty well. Visually from the front it looks good. It's soft and snug and supportive. But the cup/lace trim is just a bit too tall and full coverage in the front for my taste, and there's a slight shape incompatibility at the diagonal seam where I don't quite fill it out, and it gives me a slightly pointy shape. I don't do pointy. For those reasons alone, it's going back.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    See my review for 32DD - Freya » Enchanted Plunge Balcony Bra (1571) for main review. This 30E is not as tight as the first 30E I tried - it's band length is more comparable to my other Freya plunge-balconettes rather than being a good inch shorter as the previous one was - and is pretty much wearable so far. I think I'll want to spend a few hours breaking it in before I try to wear it for a whole day!

    Edit: So, this morning I decided to begin the breaking-in process, and I realised that this bra doesn't fit. At all. I get quad-boob on ... both sides, and on my smaller side there's also a fold between the main cup and the upper lace section. How did I not notice this before? It was only a few days ago that I bought it!

    Anyway, after giving it some thought, I reckon the reason the Enchanted doesn't work for me is because it's expecting more top projection than my boobs have (I'm semi-projected on the bottom and shallow on the top even though I'm fuller on the top than on the bottom) so the space in the upper half of the cup is basically in the wrong place for me. I think this bra would work for someone with even fullness/full on top combined with upper and lower projection!

    32DD

    Didn't fit

    I've really been looking forward to getting my hands on this bra, ever since I read on missunderpinnings.com that it is meant to have longer underwires, and that should solve the only problem I typically have with Freya plunge-balcony bras: the wires being a bit too short on the sides. I saw on John Lewis's website that they have the Enchanted in stock, so I went along to my local store, and there it was! Instant gratification! (They have Curvy Kate on their website too, but never any in my local store.)

    I picked up my usual Freya size of 30E and headed for the changing rooms, ... but when I put it on, the band was much too tight and the hooks were being pulled out. The wires were very distorted by the stretching too. Luckily they also had a 32DD in stock, so I grabbed that one instead, and it fits perfectly. It gives a remarkably rounded shape, and even jumping up and down wasn't enough to dislodge the band! I shall keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't stretch out too quickly.

    Anyway, taking the measurements of the Enchanted, I find that its underwire isn't actually any longer than the one on - for example - the Secret Garden (which I have in a 30E) but it is fine, and contains my boobs on the sides perfectly well! As a bonus, it's also a very pretty bra. The orange highlights on white are very reminiscent of the Cleo Lucy (last season's colour, I think?) but the orange is a bit more subtle. Now I just need to get hold of the aqua and beige too - oh, and the black and pink when that comes out next season!

    Edit: On actually putting it on in earnest and attempting to wear it while making breakfast, I found that the Enchanted is in fact too large for me in the 32 band after all! One side of the band turned over and the back rode up a lot. I still love the shape and the design, so I shall explain the situation to the sales lady at John Lewis and see if I can return it and see if there's a second 30E in the store with a band that's more suitable than the first one I tried.

    This bra would be perfect for me (FOB, projected, narrow roots) if I had gotten it in the right size. The band was uncomfortably tight and unusually small for Freyas. The material (non-scratchy, thicker material) however felt wonderful and the lift was awesome.

    30D

    Fits

    This fits similar to my Freya enchanted in white, this review is for the beige color. The gore is a tad bit wider and the cups a tad bit more open on top then the white one. Might be due to it being stretched out because it was super discounted. Either way, like with all bras, if you like a style, you should try it in at least 3 different bras in the same size to determine if it is right for you. So many times I thought that Freya wouldn't fit me, it was due to inconsistent manufacturing.
