  1. I bought this bra for one reason. It's yellow. Not neon yellow... a nice, soft, lemon yellow, and there is a serious lack of yellow bras on the market that might fit someone with projection. I intentionally picked a 30 band because gateway backs tend to make me look like the Michelin man. I was hoping to avoid having 4 back rolls and this band accomplishes that while still staying secure on the middle hooks.

    I've gathered from reviews of the Fancies padded half cup longline that it's a generally terrible bra with very flexible wires and zero projection. Thankfully I can report the ... unlined plunge version is much sturdier. I'm aware a lot of Freya plunges require a very specific shape and I expected this to wrinkle at the apex while cutting into my upper root but it really doesn't do that. In all honesty, this is one of my better technical fits which was a sweet surprise. It's not as comfortable as an Ewa or even a CK, but it is Freya and I didn't expect the world here. Very narrow wires, very good immediate depth. Very wide gore. I'm splayed and it's short so it doesn't bother me although if it was any taller it would and it would bother a lot of people who are close-set all the way to the IMF. The gateway back is fun and a little more delicate to look at so I've let it show with strappy back shirts without feeling like I'm telling the world HEY, HERE'S MY BRA BAND.

    I know this bra, with its wide keyhole gore and single hook band, isn't gonna be everyone's cup of tea. But it satisfied my craving for a pastel yellow summery bra on the cheap via Amazon so I'll keep it around.

      Looks great on you! It is indeed a nice soft yellow for summertime too.

    • That is very cute!

      What is a gateway back?

    • Thank you! I feel like my pics don’t do the color justice, the light in my room kinda sucked lol

      Sovavosi its a bra band with a split back... hard to explain. Others may have posted pics of the back of this bra, I did not because I have a good size identifiable tattoo on my back I can’t really edit out. Gossard did a lot of bras this style, the Phoebe comes to mind and I know there’s pics of its back on here

    • Thank you, I found a picture. I was having trouble trying to Google this term :)

    • It's lovely on you!

    • This makes me want to try this bra again in 30E. It's so pretty.

    • Gorgeous! I like several of the colors Freya offers in this style, but the gore and narrow wires....ouch. Thrilled this beauty works for you!

    • Just tried this on in black in a sister size... I really like it, but doesn't quite fit my FOT shape! Glad it worked for you, I love the fabrics. :)

    • 1

      Fancies comes in so many cute colors, but I think this is one of my favorites! Sadly it didn't work for me - gore was much too wide and the elastic at the top of the cups cut in.

    30G

    Didn't fit

    This was one of the 8 bras I tried in my first Amazon Prime Wardrobe Box! (Sadly, 8/8 did NOT fit)
    Ok so, what the heck is up with the ONE HOOK CLASP for this bra? So stupid. I don't understand the reasoning for that, other than looks? I dunno, maybe I am weird, but I didn't feel like one hook would support me at all. I can't imagine what someone with larger breasts than I have would feel about this!
    ANYWAYS! I ordered this bra in two different sizes and colors: this one was the cobalt color in 30G. I usually wear a 32G, but figured, what the heck? ... The 30G is Prime Wardrobe eligible, so I'll take a chance. This bra must have larger cups, because it fit me way better than the 32G did. This sorta feels more than a 32G to me, so maybe order down a cup size if you are thinking of trying it. (The actual 32G was LARGE in the cup and had a stretchy band.)
    The bra itself is pretty cute. (EXCEPT THAT STUPID HOOK!) The wires are a bit too wide for me, though.

      Sovavosi I know! I didn't think I'd like blue bras so much. 3 of the 5 I own that fit me are blue, hahah. But none are this bright cobalt shade.

      I'll take 4 hooks in a column everyday over one or two. Gorgeous color with a one-hook flaw ;-)

    32FF

    Fits

    This was my first time trying on a 32FF after using the r/ABtF calculator. So far it's the best fitting bra I've tried on over the last month. I didn't buy it because I was sure about it and I don't like lace bras (sensory issues) but the lace is soft and stretchy, not stiff. I may try it again when Nordstrom isn't closing in 10 minutes.

    For reference I've been wearing a 34DD Wacoal Smooth Sider and a Dream Tisha in a 36E. Both bands are a little too big, but their bands run tight afaik. The 34 Wacoal band is only a tiny bit too large ... on the smallest hooks, but the DD cups are hilariously small. The Dream Tisha band is too big on the smallest hooks and in general doesn't fit well, but I'm learning I'm the wrong shape for molded bras and am giving up on them.

    You can see in photos that my right boob is at least a cup size smaller after two surgeries. I have an insert, but didn't have it the day I tried this 32FF Freya on. There are some wrinkles in the right cup especially at the top edge lace, but the left seems to fit okay. My nipple sits where the seams meet. Now that I'm looking at the side photo, I can't quite tell, but the bottom of the cup near the underwire may have a wrinkle. I can't tell if it's a shadow or not and I'm still confused about root width and if the the underwire is in my IMF correctly. I didn't know to look for that fit issue or to see if the underwire was sitting in my IMF. I'm not sure if the wires are wide enough. I have a lot of migrated soft tissue. I wish I'd had more idea of what to check for and which photos to take, like one from below might have helped.

    I'm very full on bottom, inner full, projected, short root height, average root width or possibly a little wide. Boobs are soft, pendulous, and round. Separated by two finger widths.

      I think it’s good, and worth trying on again with your insert and time.

    • Calluna thank you. I'll definitely try it again at some point.

    • Let us know what you think! One thing to keep in mind with bras is that very often they will soften up more after a few wears and washes. Oftentimes it comes starched and washing it out helps.

      Calluna I know that, but it's amazing how often I forget it.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    Really want to like this one. I love the light lace construction and the keyhole gore (though I’m ambivalent about the gateway back). And I love the shade of navy. The navy lace is great. I did order this one in a 28 band because it’s been a while since I’ve bought a Freya and I’d had word that the bands were stretchy and generous, so I didn’t know how low to go, given my measurements.

    The band is definitely too tight, but so are the cups. Even though I have heard this is a good FOB style to try, and it has stretch lace a top thr ... top, the cup is digging/cutting into my tissue as if I was FOT or tall rooted, but I’m not. I’m generally average roots with even to FOB tendencies. So I don’t think the sister size 30E will work any better (and I did try and extender to see how that affected the cups...not significantly) and I think the 30F will fit better in thr cups, but I won’t be able to fill them out enough on top and I won’t have a good shape. Soooo, booo...

    Part of me still wants to get this in a 30E and deal with the quadding because it’s a beautiful bra, but I have to accept that it is probably a shape mismatch and that Freya plunges, except for the Deco, aren’t for me. So I should probably avoid unless I find a really cheap one.

    • Just want to say i'm sorry you didnt get more feedback on your fit requests. Ppl have been jumping in to them less recently, i'm not sure why

    • This is a beautiful bra, sorry it didn't fit you. I wonder if you have some inner fullness perhaps? Try learning forward 90 degrees in facing a mirror and check out if there is more tissue on the inside of your breasts or the outside (or even)? If you're full in the centre, your nipples will point slightly outward. I have some inner fullness, and bras that have this shape cut in on the inner aspect of my breasts even though I'm not FOT.

    • Wilderness1 I do have some inner fullness, yes.

      dbmamaz Thanks. I'll leave them up a little bit longer.

    • You have so many of the same sizing issues as me! I can wear Deco as well, but Freyas tend to look so pointy on me. It's crazy, because I'm so NOT pointy. My tissue is malleable though, so it takes the form of the cups instead of the other way around. A bra similar to this that actually does fit me well is the panache Jasmine. It has wider, shallower cups that are rounded, not pointy. It gives rounded shaping even under tight tops.

    • An illustration of Freya's cups on my body: http://bra.pe/IFuy/

    • ShaniSunAZ I also have malleable tissue but I find that I don't work with the Jasmine well. In the other bra fit request (Kiyoko) I have an imgur album with the Ciao Bella that was suggested, and further down I'm in a 32DD Jasmine and it's ok from the front, though a bit too east west for me, but pointy side view. I've tried it in sister sizes but not any different. Although I need fairly deep cups, it's up projected for me. I think that I need depth at the wire but not the apex. I'm still learning though.

    • Calluna it sounds like you have such similar fit issues to me! I'll have to keep an eye on what you find to see what might work for me! ;)

      Yes, Wilderness1 , I’m fairly certain that we’re boob twins. UU

    28DD

    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). Maybe tall roots? Usually wear 28DD or 30D.

    Great fit. Encompasses both breasts nicely. Although, there is slight quad boob on the right breast but barely noticeable. Perfect fit on my left breast. I'd say this bra fits me 95%, which is pretty good since my breasts aren't 100% exactly the same. Comfortable bra and doesn't dig into my chest at all. Coral is a nice color, too.

    32G

    Fits

    I'm not fond of unlined bras but I bought this one as kind of a bra experiment. Maybe I dreamed it but I had read somewhere that this bra had good support for larger breasts. I liked the gateway back and low gore. It was also on sale and very inexpensive, I think $19.99. It is a smaller size then I usually buy but Freya bands are often too big for me.

    It mostly fits. There is a tiny bit of wrinkling in the cups which is very visible under tops. There might be some support but no lift. I've tried to wear it a couple of times but I hate the fit and appearance. So it is off to the reject pile!

      It is good to not make yourself wear a bra that you dislike, that is a really bad feeling!

    • Such a gorgeous color, sorry it didn't fit flawlessly or provide the desired lift.

      I'm happy to give it away if anyone wears that size.

    Didn't fit

    I knew this wasn't going to work for me. I've got a Fancies balcony in 32H which I've ended up liking a lot more than I thought I would, but I'm still pretty salty that all the cute details of the Fancies line (keyhole gore, cage style band, ultra-sheer cups, a billion more color choices) stop at a G cup, so I figured I'd sister size into it to see what I was missing.

    For only one hook, the band was surprisingly comfortable, and didn't ride up as much as I expected (I had it on the tightest hooks and it was still admittedly too loose). I love the ... design, and all the aforementioned details. I was surprised at how small in the cup this ended up being on me, I've got a lot of quadding and the gore is nowhere near tacking, The shape is round, though I'm not getting enough lift for my tastes (which might not be reflective of the bra itself since I'm so far off from my true size). I'm disappointed, though not surprised, that this is a pretty terrible fit for me.

    32DD

    Fits

    My shape : pendulous, very projected, short roots, narrow roots but wide set, full on bottom, outer full. Bras are often too open on top for me, too wide and shallow or both. It's really hard for me to find a bra that isn't too wide and shallow. But this bra fits great. It isn't the most narrow, but it's got a lot of immediate projection and is quite closed on top. It's definitely not a bra that would fit a FoT shape, tall roots, or a wide or shallow shape. And this is precisely what I was looking for.
    And this is such a pretty and sexy bra. ... No need to buy anything from Victoria's Secret if this lovely bra fits ! It's also just as comfortable. The plush materials of the straps and band are just as soft as a Victoria's Secret bra. Not the sturdiest, as the band is really large and stretchy (I recommend to sister size down), but it's so soft.
    However, the one thing I really don't like is the single hook. Especially with such a stretchy band. It doesn't feel very secure and I'm a bit too afraid to wear this bra at work ! And TBH, this is the reason why I waited for so long before trying it for the first time. I'd certainly have already bought several of these if not for this single hook. Why such a design choice for a DD+ bra, Freya ? I don't get it. Please change this detail !

      Wow, a single hook? That's terrible! Glad it fits you otherwise!

    • I also have FoB and projected boobs. Not like you, most of the bras that made with lace in my reference size just cut into my breast tissues. And I also have problem with the gore, 2.5 cm separation with 5 cm height is way too wide for my close set. But I think maybe you just have a average set rather than a wide set if the gore really fit you.

    • 1

      Wilderness1 yeah it’s part of the gateway back style but totally agree that the DD+ should have 2 hooks.

    • smjwzhan I have 4 cm of separation between my boobs, they're also very narrow, fortunately they're very soft so a narrow plunge bra manages to bring my breast tissue to the front. Any higher gore than that ends up too narrow on top and fits awfully. Unfortunately many plunge bras are too shallow or too wide and I wish there would be more plunges with different cuts as they look like they're almost all cut the same. I'm struggling to find anything like this in my country.

    • Stella85 , I have a similar shape to you and was considering this bra. However, the single hook was putting me off as well - it's certainly not very secure! I wonder if you could sew an extender onto the band above the single hook? (attach each end underneath the gateway part). Or use old bra parts you already have, if you save that kind of thing. Of course that would be a lot of trouble and it might not be as easy as I'm making it seem, LOL!

    • Stella85
      It is also not easy for me to find a perfect plunge. Some of them have too tall cups, the others are too shallow. But I've heard that the Bravissimo Satin Plunge can be right for FoB and projected boobs. Maybe you can try it.

    • The first time I tried this bra, I was trying to hook it in the back, and I had not really noticed that it was one hook - until I couldn't find the second hook to hook. I was far more confused than I should have been. *snickers at self*

    34FF

    Didn't fit

    This bra and Panache Tango Plunge are my favourite bras at the moment. Tango gives a more natural shape, but Fancies is much more rounded and uplifted.

    I think the under wire is a great length for me, I do wish it was a hair more 'swoop' shaped than U shaped because I get some wrinkles at the bottom of the cup, but it doesn't affect the support really, just a cosmetic issue.

    I don't really love the lace or the fabric on the plain Freya Fancies styles, I think the lace pattern is pretty boring and I think the fabric is a bit stiff, but I suppose that's how ... it gives support. Don't expect this bra to be super soft!

    I also don't love the 1 hook fastening, I think it could do with at least 2, but I think Freya does other plunge-balconies that do feature 2 hooks, which is a direction I'm going to go in next.

    I'm even fullness, average/wide width, average projection, average height roots and I think this bra fits me well!

    Honestly, I'm so relieved to find a well fitting and COMFY bra that I can put all those dislikes out of the way.

    EDIT: I tried this bra on with an extender after realising the band was feeling very tight, and I have wrinkles on the top of the cup near my arm pit. I am too short rooted for this bra and the wires are much too wide, I don't feel supported.

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    My search for an optimal unlined bra continues. I have a tall wide chest, that is slightly shallow on top and full at the bottom and center. (I also have linebacker shoulders) I purchased a 30DD instead of a 32DD, because I've noticed that Freya's bands tend to stretch a lot, but sadly this is also not the one. I really like the color, the feel of the lace, and the back. But once again my shape doesn't work for this bra. I've got that weird wrinkling and cutting in at the top, which I think indicates the bra is too projected at the top for me. Something similar was happening with my 32DD - Panache » Rumeur Full Cup Bra (7405) Does anyone have any suggestions for unlined bras that would work for slightly top shallow, tall, bottom heavy boobs?

      Panache Clara is kind of shallow with stretch lace on the top.

      Sovavosi Thank you! Ill check that out!

      Maybe Curvy Kate Ellace? top lace is stretchy, im FOB/Even with tall roots and works well.

    • This be a is not too projected for IMO, the cup just cuts in too quickly for your tall roots. Sometimes those sorta wrinkles are caused by a bra that's too small. I have Claudette 30c and I get those same lines really badly but in my 30d I don't have them quite as much. Check out Tutti Rouge, I think their styles would work with you quote well. Stick with your normal 32 band size unless you like Nicole, then get a 32 with a cup size or two smaller.

    • LeProfessor Thank you for your suggestions! So do you think that is the case with the 32DD - Panache » Rumeur Full Cup Bra (7405)
      or is that wrinkling something else. I will definitely check out Tutti Rouge!
      and thanks martka00! to amazon I go!
