    Sadly, I've come to the conclusion that there are two types of Freya bras: one based on Fancies (Rhea, Sansa, Fearne), which fits me beautifully, and . . . everything else. This bra falls into the latter category.

    However, there are many things about this bra that I think are great. If I didn't know otherwise, I'd guess that this bra came from Curvy Kate, not Freya, because it exhibits so many aspects of functional design I've found in CK bras. This is one well-constructed bra with impressively supportive powers.

    First, this style has an impressively firm band. The band is made of super thick stretch ... tricot with sturdy elastic on the top and bottom, and it is a full band style, with elastic running through the cradle. If you've been disappointed before by Freya bands running one size larger, you won't be disappointed here. This is a TTS 28 band, and because of the low stretch on the fabric, it was actually quite difficult for me to fasten, and it felt too constricting on my ribcage. But those who need a true 28 band or are smaller may find that this fits when virtually anything else from the Freya line will run big.

    The cups are made from lightweight satiny stretch tricot lined with serious powermesh. The outer cups have a small embroidered circle design, and luckily there is lining, as we know Freya isn't know for soft materials. The upper cup is embroidered mesh with a scalloped edge, and it is actually also on the soft side by Freya standards. Overall the cup construction reminds me a lot of the Curvy Kate Princess Balcony bra, down to its deeply projected shape. Straps are nicely textured wide straps to hold the slider in place, and there's only ribbon bow charms here, none of the little metal center gore charms that I've found in so many other of their fashion styles.

    Since the cups were too deep on me and I couldn't fill the upper lace cup, this style didn't work for me. However, this was the same issue I had with the Curvy Kate Princess Balcony bra, so I suspect that if that style works for you, this could be another solid option!

    ===============

    Update March 2020:

    I tried on this bra again randomly at Nordstrom Rack. Now that I am in a 28E, this bra is too small for me. The cups are no longer too deep and I have no trouble filling them, but I found that the upper cup is too closed off and cut into my roots, causing some overflow. I need more fullness and openness at the upper cup, although the wires and the depth at bottom of the cup still worked for me. The band felt snug but didn’t feel too tight. Not sure if I am getting used to firmer bands or if the actual bra I tried this time ran a little looser than the original.

    This was an ALMOST fit and at the super discounted price I almost bought it, but I’m trying to avoid keeping bras that I know are not an ideal fit (if they can be returned). I’d say this cut runs about a size large in the cup compared to the other styles I’ve tried.

    Wires just a bit too narrow, not quite enough fullness on top to fill out the cup. Returned.

    This was an odd fit for me. It's a firm band, so it was a hair too tight. The plunge was a little too constricting across the top of my breasts, but I didn't have enough projection to fill the top of the cup. Super cute, and I love the material, but back it goes.
