    28E

    Fits

    Me: Average projection. Fuller on bottom. Slightly wider left breast (I suspect this breast is also 1-2 ml taller than my other breast). Usually wear 28DD or 30D.

    I decided to take a chance and buy this bra again in a larger cup size. The previous bra (28DD) fit me really well with a bit of quadding. Unfortunately, I couldn't size down the band since they didn't have anything smaller than 28. I'm really glad I took a chance on this bra, because it fits me so well! Well, I'd say the cups fit me 95% which is pretty darn good. There is a very slight wrinkling at the ... top of the cups, but it's barely noticeable and you can't even see it through shirts. I imagine it's there because I couldn't go down a band size; I also have to wear the bra on its 2nd tightest hook because of this. It's such a pretty bra and I'm glad I found it.

    Only other con is that I can't wear tight shirts or the lace shows through, and that looks a bit weird. I remember someone on Reddit saying that lace bras makes it look like you're hiding popcorn in your shirt, and that describes my situation pretty well.

    28E

    Fits

    Expression is another new Freya style. Sometimes Freya's unlined plunge styles don't work for me because they can be too tall in the cup for me, so my lack of upper center fullness makes the cup look pretty empty. Thankfully, this turned out to be the Fancies Unlined Plunge cut, which is their only Unlined Plunge cut that works for my shape. The main difference is that Fancies is made from completely rigid lace, while Expression is stretch lace lined with mesh, so the cups have some give.

    One big difference I've noticed in Freya's new styles is that their bands are much more TTS. ... Gone are the 28s that feel like 30s . . . this 28E is very snug on me because it's so firm, though the measurement doesn't look unusual. I suspect that they have switched elastic qualities, since the Viva I tried has a similar snug fitting band, despite both styles having short wing heights. This is so snug on me that it'd be more comfortable with an extender to break it in, however there's no issues with wire distortion, so I wouldn't personally go up a band size.

    The cups are made from a very unique stretch lace that gives the look of round crochet flowers. It gives off a 70s vibe, especially in the Ruby colorway I purchased, which is more of a wine red than ruby. The upper cup is delicate diamond pattered mesh. Both upper and lower panels are lined with mesh. I find this to be a very nice combination as it gives support but is still stretchy. Since I am currently between sizes 28E and 28F, many of my existing non-stretch 28E Freyas are now too small in the cup. This still works for me, both in the cut and fabrication. The upper edge is trimmed with open mesh elastic, though the elastic is stretchier than the seam connecting it to the upper cup, so tall roots may still feel a bit restricted by the seam rather than the elastic. Note that the wires are basically the same as on the Fancies Plunge as well--on this particular bra, they are a gentle shallow curve with longer sides. Wires are comfortable and have good flexibility.

    I don't have much upper inner fullness, so sometimes this Fancies Plunge cut works for me, and sometimes the upper inner cup is really empty on me. Right now it looks pretty good. If you have very little fullness in this area, however, you might want to skip this cut entirely, as the cup will just be baggy and empty in this area. Many of Freya's unlined plunges are designed for a round breast shape with lots of upper inner fullness.

    Since the crochet lace is the star of the show, the rest of the styling is kept simple. Straps are wide satin elastic with picot edges and are fully adjustable. There are no bows, simply a folded piece of ribbon at the center gore with a small rose gold hoop charm. For once, I find the metal charm on this style to be appropriate, and add to the vintage vibe. This would've been even lovelier if they had kept rose gold hardware throughout!

    Expression is a nice update to a Freya classic. Skip it if you can't stand the Fancies Plunge, but if you're a Fancies lover, give this a try! You may want to size up in the band depending on how current Freya bands fit you.

    I thought this bra was a but too tight in the beginning, but it is actually very comfortable for me. It’s the first bra I’ve tried where it doesn’t feel like it’s trying to move upward on my back when I wear it. To me it is very comfortable with the low wing height and low gore, it really hits spot in with my shape. It does start to get a bit “rough” after many hours of wear, but I have bought an extender to try and see if perhaps it is only because it will stretch more with use.(Already after it is a bit better, even without ... the extender) I am going to order more from Freya Plunge and see if I can’t find any that are more neutral in fabric for tight tank tops

    A little update.
    I have tried their Rio bra, and this one is very similar in fabric and feeling. Sadly the extender was no good for me and it does not seem to stretch very much with wear (I suppose that's a bonus for some)
    After wearing it a few times I have noticed that the cup size is a tad small for me and shows a bit of quadboob under my tight dresses. If you like Freya Rio, do try this one

    • Many people like the Freya deco, and it’s cups are smooth.

    28DD

    Didn't fit

    Me: Average projection. Fuller on bottom. Slightly wider left breast (I suspect this breast is also 1-2 ml taller than my other breast). Usually wear 28DD or 30D.

    The bra fits really nicely. Doesn't dig into my sides, gore sits nicely on my sternum, and it's pretty. Unfortunately, it gives me quad boob on my wider breast and small-ish quad boob on the other breast. The cup is fine on the other breast. The quad boob is noticeable under thin shirts, too. Wearing a cami tank under my shirt can slightly hide it unless I really stick my chest out (which I don't do often). Not sure if I'll keep it.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    About me: close set, center full, tall, sloping roots, full on bottom (though combined functionally even in some respects), narrow and projected.

    Far too shallow and all around small for me. So much cutting in and the gore floats.
