I do think I'm going to post a fit check here or on ABTF. I feel very supported and lifted in this. The wires are a hare too wide, but the cup depth is great!
When scooping and swooping, I usually push my underarm fat into the cups. Is that ok to do? I was wondering because with my 30E longline, 8.5" depth is fine but I don't get absolutely everything scooped. I also scoop everything into my 8" depth Deco bras, and if I didn't they would be too large. I was partly wondering about this because I ordered Comexims at or above 8.5". I'm ...guessing two are 9", but mildy shallow, and one I ordered at about 8.3",8.5 tops. I definitely like the appearance of the deeper ones because my underarm fat is concealed in the cups, but I don't know if that's what I'm supposed to be doing https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":p" />
Anyway, gorgeous design as I said with the 28FF. I think the band kept me scooped better, but this one is much more comfortable.
I feel like this bra is ideal for average to wider roots with maybe average projection. The cups don't seem shallow to me, just semi wide. This IS a 30F, but my 30E Hopscotch has wider wires also, so I'm guessing it's just a thing with Freya longlines and possibly padded half cups(haven't tried them but they look similar aside from the band).
Cup separation is great-very close. Straps are closer together than the 28FF, by just a little bit, which works better for me.
Band is firm and seems sturdy to me. That's what I love most about longlines: I've never had one that didn't feel supportive, even my 32D's still feel amazing in the band.
The half cup is also a true half cup- it bothers me when brands release something called a half cup and it's clearly a full cup. I like unlined full cups, but it's still annoying. Freya seems to not have a problem with that.
Material is nice and soft, very thin but still lined. Sort of similar to a lightly lined non winter jacket-without any heaviness. I like Freya longline cups because they have a hard time standing up on their own when laid flat. They still give a great shape, but conform more to your shape rather than you having to conform to its shape- like the stiffer Decos.
Straps are fully adjustable, cups give a round, lifted shape. Seams do show just a tad under clothes but that doesn't bother me. And I think that's it! Overall, another great longline. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I'm so sad. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I tried wearing this again (this is my 3rd time), and noticed there is empty space in the cups, mainly on the top sides, but a little bit in the top center of the cups also (not near the gore).
After trying my Comexims and Ewa, I'm realizing that 8.3-8.5" depth is best for me. I'm beginning to recognize a pattern: In bras with wider wires(such as this at around 5.5"),it seems to me that I need deeper cups. Even in my Freya Hopscotch Longline in 30E, has 8.5" depth, but the wires are a tad wider than I need, and I occasionally notice a slight quad (especially after Scoop&Swoop). In my Comexim Joy Longline, which measures very similarly to this, I have the same exact problem with upper side gap. The cups are too wide and a smidge too tall. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> My narrow wired bras between 8 and 8.4" depth, fit perfectly. I think i may be able to go up to 8.6" in padded, but that's about it, at least with wires under 5.5". With wider wires I appear to need more deptg, but it's really that the bra isn't working for me.
I really love this bra, and I looove the shape and silhouette it provides, but I don't know if I can deal with having to scoop and swoop all day. The gap is somewhat visible under even a looser t-shirt. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I'm probably going to try it one more time, but I'm up to my biggest size of each month (yay shark week at 37"), and it's still gapping up top. Ah...if only I could find a 30E :, ( I'm so sad. It seemed to fit fine before, but I wore it all day and each time I couldn't stay scooped. It was hopeless. I guess I'm just slightly too small. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Edit2: Found the likely issue: Cups measure 8.5 in center, and a whopping 9.5 on top. I'm shallow on top, functionally FoB.. I definitely need a cup down. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 716 more words
Another Freya betrayal. I had my doubts, but someone on Facebook pointed out that yep, this is a size too small. It's super cute, but on me it is too low coverage and not very secure. The straps are wide and ugly in the back and they aren't very secure-they slip around too much for what I need but I need my straps super short so if you adjust yours halfway or so this wouldn't be a problem. If I have the straps as short as I would like, I get quad that is visible under shirts. The band is stretchy, I could feel it was stretchy but because of the longline it still felt secure. All in all, it's a super cute bra but I'd need the next size up. I'm so bummed about this but I know I can't wear it because of how low cut/insecure/jiggly it is. Such a shame because not only is it cute but it is super comfy. Full review on my blog as usual.
This is a beautiful bra that I have been wanting for a long time. When I found it listed on here for a good price in 30F, I had to take it. Unfortunately, it fits more like a 32F in my opinion. The band has been stretched out so that it stretches to 32 inches, and plugging the width and depth into a search comes up with mostly bras in the 28G/30FF/32F range. It's possible that the cups have stretched out as well after having several owners. Since I'm fitting into somewhere around 28F these days, this bra is just too big for me all around. Even if ...I tighten the straps all the way, I can't fill the top, and the wires are much too wide. I think it would be good for a larger 30F with more upper fullness than I have.
I am impressed with the condition of this bra after having been through so many owners. It still looks very beautiful and has no immediate signs of wear apart from a bit of pulling on the lacy stuff on the elastic at the bottom of the band. This is not to say it doesn't look used - it definitely does, but it's not noticeable at a first glance. It's most obvious from the inside of the bra.
The print is so cute. I love the lavender background color its and the contrast with the light yellow grass, and the brightly colored hummingbirds are adorable. I would definitely repurchase this bra in 28E or 28F if I'm ever lucky enough to find one. Read more 157 more words
I'm not sure how I feel about this bra. The band is quite loose and I have to wear it on the tightest set of hooks. The cups are not as structured as I'm used to so I feel really unsupported. The top of this bra is very open and I'm just barely filling the tops. The fabric is cute though and feels comfortable.
After wearing this for a day I have more observations. The band likes to ride up in the front which is kinda annoying but not a big deal because it doesn't show. While I am wearing this on the tightest set of hooks, it feels snug enough. As this is a used bra, hopefully it's done all it's stretching. The shape is quite high and rounded and my boobs look spectacular in this scoop neck shirt I'm wearing.
So much excitement. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> If any of you saw my story a while ago about the Freya longlines, you'll probably know how exciting it is for me to have actually gotten my hands on one! I think it was sheer luck. Anyway, despite my usually wearing 28 bands, I HAD to just go for it and grab this while I could since they're discontinued! And.... it fits! The band is a little looser than usual (obviously) and I had to start on the second (and last "/) row of hooks, but it's comfy and stretchy. The cups ...fit perfectly over my larger breast, and there's a little bit of gaping on the right one. I think with extended wear it should be okay though. For some reason either my bras or my boobs 'settle' through the day-- for instance I won't have quadboob in the morning but when I get home from work I will. Weird, I know. The gore mostly tacks. It's pretty much like all my other bras where I could use a touch more centre depth, but it doesn't really sit on my tissue or anything so it's okay. The wires are also quite narrow for a UK brand (in my experience) which is great for my narrow boobs. Overall, a definite win and I'm so, so happy https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 138 more words
I bought this because the seller said it fit more like a 30D/DD. I think it fits more like a 30E and would suit someone with even fullness. If I had more fullness on the bottom and outside, it would've fit me ok. Wings a bit high, might have dug in a bit with more wear.
It fits really great. I can fully swoop and scoop and nothing spills out. Maybe only the tiniest amount on my bigger boob, but going up a size would make it too big. It might not look as boobular as the 30DD did, but it's not worth it to have to tuck in parts of my boob. It still looks great! And my boobs are projected and full on bottom. People always say this is a bra good for shallow, yet it works for projected too.
This is a beautiful and very comfortable bra, but I'm on the fence about keeping it because of the stretchy band.
Cons: - The 30 band already feels a little loose on the tightest hooks (I have a 27.5" snug comfortable ribcage) right out of the box. I don't think I will get much wear out of it without having to alter it tighter and I can feel a little pressure from the straps on my shoulders because they are picking up the slack.
- The wires are a little too wide for optimal support and shape. It's not necessarily a deal-breaker but I can do better.
Pros: - The 6 ...hook band is SO comfortable! I wish everyone made bras like this.
- The lift for my soft, FOB breasts is really great. They are up, forward and round.
- The fabric is really soft, smooth and pretty.
I am marking this as sort of a half fit because it fits OK, it's just on the tightest hooks. However, I think I would ultimately be happiest in a 28FF.
I love this bra so much. The colours are very pretty, and the fit is great. The lace around the top of the cups can show through clothes. If you sit slouched forward, the bottom of the band may also roll up (I didn't notice this in the Freya Piper Longline (1233) ). Like the other Freya longlines, there are only 2 columns of eyes. When I put this bra on, it feeld like it disappears it is so comfortable!
