This one confounds me. It looks fine, but comparing to the cups of my bras that I know fit, I know this is too small. The wires feel painfully tight as well. I love the pattern, it's very cute despite its (ahem) tasteless name. The band seemed a little tighter than other Freya 30's i've tried.
What a tresure! I found this bra still with tags at the back of my wardrobe when I was looking for my laptop bag.. Good place to hide for over a year! Its cute bra but I never got along with Freyas. The shape is not my 'style' and obviously now I need at least 30E/F so this one is way too small all over the cups and way too loose in the band
Another great mesh Freya in the Untamed family. Funky zebra print with neon pink edging, perfect for summer, when bra straps keep showing no matter what I do.
Shape is forward, projected, great for FOB, slightly more natural than round (green shape if you read Bras I Hate Blog) but still uplifted.
I got about one month intermittent use out of this bra before I had a cup changing weight gain. I also removed the tiny strap bows because they got caught on the main shirt that I wore this bra with, so they are missing in my photos. The bra retails with tux bows at the strap attachments that match the neon pink center bow.
I tried on this bra at a Nordstrom different from my usual store - and found a very pushy sales lady to boot who, in spite of everything wrong about this bra, kept telling me "it doesn't look that bad to me" and "there's just something about it I like on you" - and I'm sure that "something" was her potential commission on the $70 price tag.
First off, it is zebra print, and I do not like animal prints so I wasn't going to buy it anyway. I really just wanted to try on the different cut to see how it fit, because it is listed on the ...Nordstrom website and Figleaves as a "plunge balcony", so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Secondly, the cups were all wrong for me. I could barely get my hands in to swoop and scoop, but even without doing it the problems were obvious: too short and closed on top (quadboob), too deep (very wrinkly cups), too narrow (poking at the sides), and too small on top of all that (I generally like a 30FF or 28G in Freyas, I think). Also, the seams went right across my nipples and had started to itch within the 3 minutes I had it on in the fitting room.
This bra went back on the shelf as soon as I could get the bossy sales lady out.
I would also like to amend the fit bullets to say that the center gore was high, but only about as high as the Freya Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223) . This is still too high for me, sadly, but it's really not that bad. Read more 169 more words
