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 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.
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!
I really love Freya bras, and this one was no exception. I purchased it new at Nordstrom department store. The bright blue with the silver really popped, and the bra was super comfortable. I would say it's true to size; I can no longer wear it due to my reduction.
Not a bad fit. The wires are bit high in the middle for one as close set as I - the gore is 2.8" and I am better with 2.5" or lower, but they are hard to find in a supportive bra. I like the side support and the fact that the cups are narrower than many other bras - the result is a better shape and fit. The straps are not too narrow, which is good. The bra is also sheer- my husband remarked on this, and I am pretty sure not in a bad way. For such a sheer bra, it does cover a lot of ...boob. Fortunately, it does not have a lot of volume high up (as I do not either), so there is no wrinkling. I almost bought this bra several times before, but I didn't really need it, and wasn't sure it would fit. I am happy to say that it does fit, and with a drawer full of bras that are worn out and/or now don't fit, I will probably be buying more. Read more 72 more words
About my boobs: - Soft tissue - Relatively even - Roots not particularly wide or narrow, I don't think - Surprisingly center full when supported - Underbust doesn't have a lot of "squish" so I go for 30/32 bands - Learned that I have tall roots
This is the first "bra that fit"... but it's not the shape I'm looking for, and I learned I have tall roots, which I've been wondering about! So that's cool. The cup is very east-west/boobs don't feel centered despite the side sling, and they feel like they're low on my chest as well. However, it's the closest I've gotten to something that's comfortable! The band feels like a nice ...material - but it's also very stretchy, at least in the white colorway I ordered, so the 32E and 32F I bought were too loose in the band. 32E fit pretty much the same in the cup as the 30F, if that's relevant.
I could size down but the cup just barely cuts in on my bigger side, so I think this is the best fit that this bra can give me. I like the materials - wasn't itchy right out of the box like some lacy bras and I felt relatively contained/supported (important for that soft tissue). If you have shorter roots this could be a great bra for you! Read more 110 more words
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.
Edit 8/2/19: I've had this about a year and a half. Unfortunately it didn't hold up to time as much as I would have hoped! I began having issues where, without any noticeable digging in or discomfort of the straps themselves, this bra would give me pain in the right shoulder after daily wear. I've also moved onto using the tightest strap and still find it's not enough to support me.
