Second Kelly, bought strictly as a travel bra (wanted non-wired soft cup). Band was very snug until I washed it once and now it's relaxed a little. This band will be very stretchy, but it is marketed as a maternity bra. Yes, I really needed a 30H but couldn't find one.
good: pretty comfy, which is what I want for travel, especially long flights or delays. Gives some separation but less as the day wears on. Cute. I like the pink straps which won't be as obvious as white if they show, and I love the leopard print.
bad: droopy! Very droopy, downward pointing cups. Not sure if I ...will modify them since travel comfort and not fashion is the key here. Cup depth is 10 inches. I remeasured 3x because I couldn't believe a 30HH would be 10 inches where my 32G Fantasies are in the 11.5 range. Probably fits because it is 8" wide! Sides come up very high for my petite, short-waisted frame.
Since these bras are still available, although harder to find, I will say the band runs very large so get a much smaller band than expected and much larger cups.
Nylon--expected softer material. Not deep enough for my breasts, but band is perfect. Droopy look. I desperately need a soft cup bra. I read several places where Freya Kelly runs large in band and cup--but to me only the band is large. I wear a 32G in Fantasie and Chantelle So I thought 30G would be big, but I really need an H. Will likely droop even more.
I REALLY wanted this to work. I have been looking online for a soft cup bra -- not because I'm pregnant, just because I want a comfy bra to wear around the house in the evenings and on the weekends (I can't stand wearing underwired bras all day long).
Well, this one was just okay. My main complaints were that the center gore didn't lay flat and my boobs still touched in the middle, and the shape was not as uplifted as the picture (in fact, my breasts were pointed downwards, something I had never experienced before!) If it weren't for the downward pointing shape, I could have lived with the fact that my breasts still touched in the middle. I'm not sure if a larger cup size would have made a difference or not. I adjusted the straps unreasonably tight just to see if it helped, and it didn't.
Other than that, it's pretty cute for a soft cup bra. Just didn't work for me.
Another soft cup bra. This one give a nice shape, much better than Panache's Sophie but alas, the 30 band strikes again. It just isn't small enough. This leads to the bra fitting just oddly. When I pull enough out to make the band the right size it fits perfectly. Another one to get altered since Freya refuses to make any of their soft cup bras in a 28 band.
For info this bra has 4 rows of hooks. This was meant as a maternity bra so I'm guessing they're there for a little extra adjustment. I measured the band from the 3rd set of hooks; the ones that would traditionally be the loosest hooks.
