    Used to fit

    I wish I'd tried this bra sooner! It is SO comfortable. I've always hated how bulky and unattractive Freya straps are, but they're definitely worth the comfort. I'm a 32F, but I generally take 30FF's in Freya's due to the stretchy band. Definitely the right choice for this bra because it fits comfortably on the last hooks. The wires could be a bit narrower for my smaller breast, but the extra bit causes no discomfort and looks fine. The cups might be a tiny bit too closed on top for me; I have to check again when my cycle is over because I gain a lot of upper fullness when menstruating, so I'll check back with that in a few days. Other than that, I have zero complaints about this bra. It's beautiful, and constructed nicely. I've been needing a black bra, and I'm glad I found one that wasn't too plain and boring, the pictures really don't do it justice. So glad I ventured out of Cleos and got this gorgeous bra.

    I had to sew center gore closer, I wish there was a size in between this one and the 30 F one I had, I feel like it would be perfect somewhere in between. I love the appearance and shape it has, but the larger cup gave me less lift from the profile.

    This bra took a little getting used to at first, but I really like it. It's pretty and supportive. I wasn't used to the three-panel design, so at first I thought it made my girls shaped a little funny, but I got used to it, and I really like the black laciness. I have narrow shoulders, I guess, so the straps are almost too far apart and dig into my armpits occasionally, but not enough to be uncomfortable. I can't wear other balconette styles though, for that exact reason. I will echo what others have said about the band being pretty stretchy. I can wear it on the medium hook to tightest hook comfortably, and it's still pretty new.

    The band is too tight for me, but the cups seem to fit all right!

    Band is stretchy, very comfy on the loosest hooks. I like that Freya bands are not overly narrow; it makes having only 2 hooks in my size range much more comfortable than, say, Cleo's back-slicing bands.

    This is my best-fitting Freya without a doubt. I get almost no Freya pucker, the width and depth are perfect for me. The gore, as always, is too wide for me.

    My real problem with this bra is that it tries to cut my arms off. I've marked it as the straps being too far apart, just to give an indication that it didn't fit in that respect, but in truth I think that's a little simplistic. Certainly my Cleo bras seem to have equally wide-set straps and they don't bother me or chafe me in the way Freya bras do. I think it's a combination of wide-set straps and tall cups, particularly through the tail of spence region (perhaps Cleo bras are cut a little more forward there, making them more underarm/tail of spence friendly?).

    This is my best fitting bra to date. Given I suffer some degree of the Freya wrinkle (http://www.venusianglow.com/2011/07/freya-and-curvy-kate-pucker-diagonal.html) in the previous Freyas I've tried (Arabella and Morning Meadow cut families), I fully expected the Gem to be the same. Instead, the cup fits like the proverbial glove. The only problem I have with this one is the too-wide gore. But I've yet to find a gore that actually fits between my breasts, and it's not uncomfortable in the least, so I'm counting it as a fit.

    The band is quite stretchy, enough that I can't feel it at all. The cups are a little stiff, enough ... that the emptiness of the cup on my smaller breast is obvious even after shortening the straps, but it doesn't particularly show under clothing. I imagine they'll soften with wear and washing.

    The straps seem quite stretchy on this one: I normally don't have to tighten my straps far at all, but on the Gem I have the slider almost up to my shoulder. Lucky for me they're fully adjustable so there's still some space to play with.

    Very supportive and a very rounded shape for a non molded bra. I find myself not wearing it very much just because it's nothing special.
