I had been lusting after this bra since before it was released, but wanted to wait for a sale... and I am very disappointed as this was a terrible fit on me! I have worn Freya before, but only in their half cups.
Good: The colours on the Marina are beautiful. It's just gorgeous looking. The bra is incredibly comfortable, even on the tightest hook (I probably would have been better off in a 30J, which I wear in Curvy Kate's Showgirl range). The centre gore is narrow (one of the reasons why I thought it would work for me), the wires don't come up high ... so they won't poke and I can see the material being very comfortable to wear on a long day.
Bad: Centre gore poked out, terrible quadboob and wrinkling at the bottom of the cups. I also got this odd long wrinkle down the top half of the cup. I think the shape is just completely wrong for me and the material is not malleable enough to mould to my shape properly. If I went up to a 32HH or 30J to help with the centre gore and quadboob problems, the wires would be too wide and I would still get wrinkling in some parts anyway.
If I were fuller on bottom and less so on top, can see this working a lot better.
