The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Part 4! My shape: projected, soft tissue, narrow shoulders and roots, FOB Fit: The gore tacks TOO well on this bad boy. It HURTS, like, digging in big time hurtage. The cups themselves are too big. The band feels nice and firm, which makes me think a 32G in this model would be too big in the band, but a 30G will be to small in the cup. Damn you, picky boobs! Appearance: This is the black version of the Hero, and it's.... OK. There's a silver bow on the tops of the straps and a smaller one at the gore. The fabric isn't very soft; this could be an issue for people with sensitive skin.
This was suggested on ABTF. The cup is far too tall for me and the top is really empty. It's also way too wide, the wire came almost around the back. The gore is really really tall as well but it tacked, which most of my bras right now do not.
Wires are quite wide, even for me. First time I have ever even considered that the straps might be too far apart. Band was hooked on the second column from the start, so size down there. Was a bit of extra room in the cup, but I suspect only I would have noticed it. Very pretty, love the silver accents. Lace was a little stiff, but not at all scratchy.
This bra is made for projection everywhere, it seems. I've got pretty even vertical fullness, and I filled out the bottom, but it was just slightly loose on the top cups. The issue I had with this one was scratchiness. It was scratchy on top of the shoulders, under the band where the material curled kept wanting to curl under, and especially near the armpits, where the material bunched up. The mesh of the cups was not the softest, either, and the material was sheer. Maybe because the cups were so large, it didn't lift me up much and let me fall out to the sides more than I like. I could try down a cup size, but I probably will just send it back.
The band of this bra is quite loose on me: I could easily fasten it on the 2nd set of hooks right away. The gore tacks nicely and I fill the bottom of the cups well but the top of the cups is a different story: I can fold a good 1-1/2" of extra fabric over itself on both sides. Also, the underwires are very wide, reaching all the way to my back past my underarms. I think I need to try this bra is a smaller band size and cup size since both 36GG and 36H are too big. Other than that, the fabric of this bra is quite sheer and it has an interesting silver line all the way in the center of the straps (on a black bra) that makes it look a bit different.
This is the first Freya bra I have tried. The 36" band is fairly loose on me; I could immediately fasten it on the 2nd set of hooks and be comfortable. On me, the gore tacks and the bottom of the cups is well filled but there is a lot of extra fabric at the top of the cups (as in I could fold 1/2" of fabric over itself at the top of the cups on both sides). The wires are slightly wide but not too bad. The fabric is fairly see through but not too scratchy. I will be returning this bra but I might try it again in 36G.
This is the first underwire bra that I have found that fits. I didn't think I would find a bra where the wires lay flat (well almost) on my ribs. Normally the wire ends stick out in front of me, but not with this. Great.
I own this in neon yellow/green, and it's the most obnoxiously awesome color. The band is slightly large, but that works well for me. The cups have good depth, but the wires are too wide for me. This causes my breasts to look wide from the front, but not an unbearable amount. The top of the gore jabs me in the sternum, which is caused by too tall gore. If you're looking for a sheer unlined bra, this one is a cute one.
