    The tips about this bra running large in the band and the cup are definitely true. Normally I wear a 30GG or so in unpadded Freya bras, but the 28H I ordered for comparison had wrinkling in the top section even after judicious swooping and scooping. And while the bra is a bit too tight for me on the loosest hook, it's certainly not as tight as I'd expect. If I keep this bra, I'll probably be wearing this with an extender until it stretches.

    The straps are nicely soft and wide, and while I think I'll have strap slipping issues, I have sloping, slightly narrow shoulders, so I ... have that problem with every bra.

    The center gore sat better on me than I'd expect of a Freya balcony-- they usually come up too high for my close-set boobs-- but it didn't sit as firmly against me as I'd like. It felt like the band was holding the underwires a tiny bit forward of my breasts, especially in the middle inch of the gore.

    The comfort was pretty good. The cups are fully lined, so you pretty lace details on the bra without having to feel the lace against your skin. The straps, as I said, are very comfortable. That said, something about the feel of the materials just wasn't as nice as my Freya Ada, which is my current gold standard for comfort.

    This bra gives me a slight double boob on my larger side, especially right after a swoop and scoop. I feel like the top section of the cup just doesn't quite agree with the shape of my larger boob-- it cuts in most in the middle and toward the center gore. It's not obvious through the soft cotton tops I usually wear, but it kind of worries me.

    I got the white Freya Jolie second-hand, with the intention of maybe dyeing it a different colour. It fits perfectly, and doesn't poke anywhere. I also appreciate the wider band in the GG+ sizes - better at distributing load (and helps offset the fact that the band itself runs so huge).

    The shape is also good - nice and uplifted but still natural-looking. Many people complain that Freya bras give a "pointy" look, but I have found that under clothing, the natural teardrop shape looks better than the perfectly round orbs I get from other brands or from moulded bras, and doesn't draw as ... much attention to my boobs.

    The floral mesh is not pretty but is ever so soft and breathable. The straps are wide and comfortable, but a little too wide and too utilitarian to be attractive. The full coverage cups come up to high to be worn under anything remotely low cut, and for reasons unknown, the bra is decorated with out-of-place teeny tiny ribbon roses. This bra will not be winning any beauty contests, but it is oh so very comfortable for lounging about on weekends.

    I previously had this bra in a 28G and it lasted ages, I loved it.
    The 28GG is a tad tight in the band, but I have put on a fair amount of weight, and I'm in the process of losing it, as the pounds shift it's starting to feel better.

    The jolie is a great day to day bra, slight plunge but still a good overall shape, nice and lifted plus the purple is pretty.

    The Freya Jolie runs large in the band and big in the cups. I can't wait to buy it in my size, though, as it's very comfortable and pretty. The straps are wider than the usual Freya bra.
