    This bra is...well, big. It's very high-coverage and the wires are very wide. The starting point of the cup (where the bow is) is practically on top of my shoulder and there's a lot of fabric and underwire in my armpit, which is uncomfortable. The center gore is also fairly high and wide. The straps are extremely long and far apart. Everything is just...big. Tall and wide. It's like the bra was built for someone who's seven feet tall.

    Like most Freya bras, it gives you a lot of space at the bottom of the cup and relatively little on top. If you're full on top, this might produce ... empty space at the bottom and cutting in at the top; if you're full on the bottom, it might create duck's-beak boobs. On me, the shape is lifted, minimized, not exactly round but less pointy than Freya's other balconettes, and also slightly east-west due to the overly wide cups. It's not awful, but it's not brilliant either.

    On the plus side, the high-coverage, high-closure, made-of-stiff-fabric cups give good support. This is helped by the thick, wide straps and the wide band, which is not too stretchy (although it runs very large — this 28 is actually a 32). I don't bounce much in this bra, but I don't think the support is worth the tradeoff in comfort and shape.

    I also have this bra in 28GG beige. Again, the band is very stretchy, so I am already using the second set of hooks and I've only worn this twice, so far. The projection is great for my shape. The cups fit my larger breast perfectly, but there is a bit of wrinkling in the top of my smaller breast. The cups are much fuller on this size than the GG and as a consequence they start much higher on my breasts, which I don't really care for, but this fits well. The gore is slightly taller in this size, as well, which causes slight digging into my chest when I am in certain positions. The only other thing is that the straps are set wider apart on this size so I get very slight pressure in my upper armpits, but nothing a little adjustment won't fix.

    I really like the black with the pattern on it and the material is very comfortable. I do wish I had ordered this in the 28GG, but this will definitely work.

    I loved this bra, but have grown out of it. The stitching that runs along the cup causes it to cut in when my weight fluctuates. Super comfortable. Great for under light t shirts.

    This bra is really light and I forget I am wearing it.
    This is a pretty new bra to me, and I have lots too trade it off with. My only issue is it being white, that it picks up the oils of the skin very quickly so I wash it a lot.

    This bra is really good for my breasts which are fuller towards the bottom than the top and set quite close, but droopy and head off in the direction of the armpits. It has thick straps which not everyone likes but they are comfy. I can wear this bra all day. It felt very tight around the band when I first bought it and has eased off a lot now, so I'm not sure how long it will last if it stretches further. I'd love something similar. It doesn't allow any cleavage at all which is a shame.
