Overall it is a very pretty bra, the sheer lace makes it very sexy. However there are some fit issues, as there is quite a lot of wrinkling at the bottom of the cups even after scooping and swooping (probably a shape mismatch). Also the gore does not sit flat on my chest, however, I do have pectus excavatum (basically a dent in my ribcage) so the gore has never quite sat flat with any bra I've tried on so far, so this may not be specific to this bra. Other than that the straps are wide and comfortable, the mesh in the cups is made of quite a rough fabric, so it tends to get a little itchy after some hours wearing it.
This was my first order to find a bra that fits, and it was an epic fail. I believe myself to be splayed, slightly pendulous/projected, low set, and perhaps fob. Recommendations for sizes were 30F - 30G. I bought the sister size 32F because it was on sale.
The material is fairly scratchy in all parts. It is a very light mesh bra, without lining. The entire bra is mesh, which suprized me because it looked like the lower cup was a softer material. The straps are adjustable, even on my long frame.
The bra is supposed to have "side support", which was recommended for my splayed breasts, but ...I felt like my breasts sides weren't supported at all, and in fact the look was a little "east/west". Perhaps this is because my breast tissue doesn't really go that far over to the side. My breasts were not enclosed in this bra at all! The wire around the entire breast was about 1/2 to 1 inch away from my breast tissue, and the cups were obviously gapping. This was definitely not in my IMF. I'm not sure if it was simply too large all around, or if it was just the wrong shape for me? The band was obviously too big, and it stretches a LOT. Even when I scooped, and adjusted the straps, there was still a lot of gaping. I'm pretty sure that I still would have had quite the 'elf shoe' look on a side profile even if this bra had fit me. I will be returning this bra!
One of the best fitting bras I've bought this year! I have a big issue with torpedo boobs and while this doesn't quite give me my ideal shape, it definitely rounds out my breasts a lot more than most other bras. Comfortable for wearing on long days. Lovely lace details. The lacing does have bulky seams right over the nipples, so when worn under thin shirts it looks a bit odd.
This bra is a entitled a plunge bra, although the gore is not particularly low. I cannot judge the fit since it is not in my size range. Regarding the construction, the cup is made of four parts of non-stretch fabric. The side support is made of a sturdier fabric, while the other three parts are made of a lace that doesn't feel very soft. I don't know if the materials might soften with a washing, but for a new bra, they feel quite rough. The band is made of one layer of stretchy jersey, and the straps have a shiny silver decoration on the top. This would also be somewhat scratchy, but since it's not also on the inside of the strap, it's fine. Same fro the thin elastic on the top edge of the cup. Regarding the design, the silver accents look very pretty in real life, and they give an otherwise plain black bra a bit of a party feel.
This is one of the first bras I got when I found I was wearing the wrong size. I love the cut, and feel. I thought it felt too flimsy, but has turned out to be amazing. The band does stretch out quickly. I am very short torso, but this felt great. The wires don't dig in, the gore tacks well. As it is aging, I am finding the that the cups are not as supportive as they were.
Had to size down in the cup because otherwise I got the potato sack effect. Because it's sort of stretchy on the top cup, it fits without digging in anywhere. It is not as stretchy as the panache stretch lace, which I feel provides virtually no structure. This is a more happy medium. Band is not a tight 30," it's a true 30," so I can tolerate it and it gives good support. This gives me great support that is still comfortable. It helped with my chronic neck pain and reflux. I also have better posture. I don't get seam show-through under any of my T-shirts. I'm buying another one!
Found this bra on clearance in both 32F and 32FF (my calculated size)! As I'm just starting out in my bra fitting adventure, I am unfamiliar with how Freya fits on me. I seem to need to size down in the cups as there was lots of gapping across the top in the 32FF. The 32F fit wonderfully. No wrinkles or gapping, gore tacks and straps are not digging/sliding off my sloped shoulders. The side wings (and so the wires) are a bit lower than the Panache bras I've been getting. With my wide roots, the wires seem to enclose everything nicely. We will see how I feel after wearing it a few hours.
EDIT 6/5/17 After several months, I have determined that the center gore is wide and too high did my narrow set. Too many days of wanting to rip it off soon as I get home. I hope these marks go away in a few months! Will be listing soon.
My first bra that truly fit-- I'm still trying to get used to how tight this band is supposed to be! This is difficult to wear at times, since the thin lining and seams within the cup are very visible underneath a thin shirt. My shoulders are narrow, so the strap has a tendency to fall off. The material also creaks when I move, which is annoying but not a deal-breaker.
