    30E

    Fits

    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.

    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! ;)

    • 1

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

    36G

    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.

    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 ;-)

    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!

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    I really wanted this bra to fit, but alas, it is not the bra for me. The top of the cup cuts into my breast with the 30FF and there is wrinkling in the cup under the arms on the 30G. 😐

    Updated on Feb 18, 2018 Flag this

      Looks beautiful, but doesn't have enough center projection for you. One of our users successfully adds a dart under the arm to remove wrinkles there. I wonder if that could improve the fit of the 30G?

    • I’m the same. I just got 28F, though I think I need a 30E, maybe 30F be because it cuts in on my tissue as well, and I have a smidge of wrinkling/space st the wire. And the 28 is hella tight.

    • Love4Pollinators I feel a little intimidated by that idea, I wish I didn't! It is such a pretty bra. I feel like it's just not right though. Calluna I was really hoping it would fit me because it looks really nice when it does fit!!

    28E

    Didn't fit

    My shape: fairly projected, narrow-to-average width roots, tall roots, not much upper-fullness, soft tissue, splayed.

    How this bra fits me: the band is pretty firm and TTS for a Freya bra. It only has one hook per column and only three columns, which is necessary for the gateway back - and very pretty - but something to bear in mind if you're a smaller band size or if you need more support. I'm small busted so as long as the fabric of the cups is supportive I'm fine.

    I find the wires noticeably firmer than Freya wires usually are.

    The cups close off sharply and do cut into my tall roots ... a lot, but I bought this bra because it looks pretty and I am a child about things like that and also my husband likes it. Loosening up the straps helps and the cutting in doesn't show under clothes. I have also discovered that, tall roots be damned, my soft tissue really wants a horizontal section without give to hold everything in place. I would say this bra is less forgiving on tall roots than the Freya Fearne and its sisters (which are also not perfect, btw, just better) and more forgiving that all other Freya plunge styles I have tried.

    The projection and lift are just perfect. This bra does not give me a pointy shape - I look gently rounded with a soft peak. Very natural, very pretty. The cup construction does a good job at pulling all my tissue forward.

    The lace fabric looks and feels great. Comfy. It's firm, but not scratchy.

    I'll need to widen the wires on my bigger side (measurements I added are pre modification ofc) but I bought this knowing that. I tend more to be a 28F, but Freya Fs are almost always too deep for me for at least 20 days of every month !

    Edited to add, the straps are stretchy. They move about on my shoulders, they feel like they will probably stretch out fast. I don't know if that's true for larger cupsizes, but if you need solid straps I would absolutely check first.

    • Is the cup fabric stretchy at all? I'm looking for one that at least the top portion of the cups are stretch lace. Is this like that?

    • 1

      moriko It isn't stretchy at all I'm afraid. The Panache Ava plunge in blush has a similar aesthetic and the upper portion of the bra is stretch lace - the band on that one runs slightly big and the wires slightly wide, but other than that its fit is similar (lots of room in the bottom of the cup and fairly deep at the apex, too).

    • 1

      Oh, moriko, if you need narrow cups with room at the bottom and stretch lace up top, you could try the Bravissimo Mia bra. The gore is wider than Panache's gores are, so no good for close-set breasts. I'd say the cups run a smidge small, so perhaps size up if you try this one.

    This was one of the 8 bras I tried in my first Amazon Prime Wardrobe Box! (Sadly, 8/8 did NOT fit)
    Ok, the note I have written for this bra is: "TOO BIG" in all caps, hahah! So yeah, this seems to run big.
    And again, the one hook clasp is a dealbreaker for me. It might work for others, but not this gal. Three hooks or bust!
    I ordered this in the graphite color, which was really pretty! It's a nice alternative to a black bra. I also liked the little peekaboo hole in the gore.
    Overall? Cute bra, but at least one cup size too large.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    This is my second Freya Fancies bra, a giveaway from SoM . The Fancies plunge has quite deep, tall cups that are fairly closed at the top, with an elastic trip along the top of the cups - it might be an especially good fit for shapes that tend towards FOB and are quite shallow on top. I'm even to FOT with tall roots so the elastic cuts in on me a bit. The lace portion at the top is not stretch lace, so that's another thing to consider if you're FOT or have tall roots. It gives a natural, gently sloped profile with a slight ... peak.

    The Fancies Plunges is a very delicate looking, lightweight bra, and is great for wearing in summer months. In my photos you can see that the gore on this bra has been altered - the wires have been pushed down and the top of the gore has been cut off - it's fraying and needs a bit of a repair job. I'm going to do my best and give it a bit of TLC, and hopefully I'll be able to wear it next summer.

    I don't even know why I bothered to try this bra. I guess it just looks too good. Although the top seam is stretch lace, there is an elastic near the edge so the cups still cut into my tall roots. The band is a little stretchy and is too loose. There is only one hook so it doesn't make me feel too secure. This bra is projected like other Freya plunge balconies, but it's more like a balcony than a real plunge. The gore is quite high. The cups are also too tall.
