Oh my Hufflepuff heart, this colour!!! I have seen this particular bra on a few Instagram posts from the various boob accounts that I follow. It’s been a long time since I’ve tried a Freya, and I don’t think I’ve ever tried a high apex bra like this. Needless to say, aside from the Deco, I haven’t had much luck with Freya.
The lace is a vibrant mustard yellow and has a sort of bohemian aesthetic to the lace. The upper portion of the cup is sort of a muted geometric pattern. The shape, I would say, is like a triangle bra or bralette so a bit plungey. ...Sadly, it’s not compatible with my shape. It’s partly that the cups have an elastic edge to them that cuts into my soft tissue, but it’s partly because I kind of have taller roots, even if they are shallow. Now would a larger cup have fit better? Maybe, but no point in trying because that lace would NOT lay flat.
So another beautiful autumn gem of a bra that sadly is not for me. Read more 74 more words
The band on this bra seemed much larger than expected. It fit more like a 34 than a 32. The cup is a close fit but not the right shape for me. It looks nice though I don't like the frills at the bottom.
In contrast to my moulded Freya bras, this unmoulded bra simply didn't work at all for me, due to the quadboob effect where the material cut diagonal lines across my chest! I wanted a bra that would not be so noticeable under clothes, so I thought the relatively thin material and the beige colour would be good for that. It was a light beige colour and thin as I'd hoped.. But due to that awful cutting in, it looked silly. It felt more like a sling than a bra, it was two pieces of material being pulled down by the breasts, not able to lift anything up! The lack of support ...is a real let down literally, I have wireless lace bralettes that give me much better lift than this bra, and this bra has underwire! There were no comfort problems with the underwire as such and the cups were filled at the bottom. The band was not too loose. But the high apex part was really not suitable. I can't think of any way I could work with it - Getting a smaller cup size would be even worse, but one cup size bigger and I wouldn't fill it properly! Read more 89 more words
I love this bra! The gold color is divine. I feel pretty in it. Somehow this bra provides me with centering and forward projection while also eliminating cleavage (I prefer not to have cleavage. I purchased this bra because I was tired of only buying bras that we more "balconette" style. I don't like how balconettes look, I don't like how the straps connect to the cups with the little bow. They're tolerable and just fine in a good fit, but I don't love it. This bra looked unique, and it delivered! The straps are slightly more centered because of the high apex style, and I don't ...get any of that pinchy feeling by the armpits that can sometimes happen with balconettes where the straps connect. The wires are so comfy compared to my past Cleo and panache bras! The lace overlay around the band is cute, and would make it look kind of like a longline if it would lay flat. but if you have any extra skin/tissue/body fat on your ribcage, it isn't going to stay flat. Sorry. It's not uncomfortable and doesn't bother me.
This may not count as a technically perfect fit though. Here are my "fit issues": - the cup is somewhat closed on top with a bit of elastic. Occasionally this will cut into my tissue (not painfully) depending on how I am sitting/standing/moving. IT is not noticeable under clothing, and was less noticeable at the end of the day so I think as the elastic wears, it will diminish. However, I don't think this style would be appropriate for FOT breasts for this reason. Even-fullness and close-set breasts will likely also have an issue with it. I think it will work best for short roots(me) or FOB, even though the high apex might deter you. -the gore is slightly too wide for me. Because the wires are soft, it doesn't hurt or bother me. I may alter it later. - I have to wear it on the second hook. Can't buy a smaller band because it only goes up to a G cup in this style. sad face
Regardless of this, I love this bra so much I immediately purchased it in two more colors. I also got the matching boyshorts and they are so soft and comfy. Very cute set, highly recommend. Read more 278 more words
I'm surprised this fits even thought my sister size should be 36dd, not 36d. Will measure later. The straps are not soft. They are scratchy on the edges. The material isn't quite lace and is rough at all seems. It does have a lace top layer covering the bottom half of the cups and the band. Leaves texture imprint on skin after 8 hours wear. It's not long line, but does have an inch of lace below the band. Underwire is comfortable. Shape is almost too short. Very mustard in color. California gold is apparently a fall color.? I wouldn't buy more, but I'll wear this over the hassle of returning to another country.
