    i'm reluctant to try freya due to the deco plunge's reputation for narrow wires. i kind of liked the molded halfcup, but i didn't want pushup padding. however, the marvel is not as narrow, and has been known to work for some shallow-breasted people.

    it didn't work for me. the cup is a little too projected and fot for my boobs. i filled out the bottom but there was no lift to my shape, and there was wrinkling on the top edge of the cup. the wires were incredibly hard and painful, especially at the gore. i've worn this a couple of times, trying to justify these issues, ... but the pain is too much. bra pain is commonplace, but i have to remember that it's unacceptable.

    side ramble: it's funny how despite being bravangelized i still have a tendency to ignore fit issues. when trying on a new bra i hope that it's the end of my search. as i raise my standards of bra fit, i've realized that bras i had marked as "fit" years ago definitely don't fit. the wires were too narrow, the gores were too high, the bands were too loose, but i tried to make it work anyway despite feeling uncomfortable. i'm struggling to accept that the average person tries on 25 different bras before finding the right one. i'm not giving up, but sometimes i just really want to.

    The excess fabric wrinkles across the top, and the wires poke my sternum

    This is the most comfortable bra I own. I can sleep in it and forget I have it on! With my small size it's difficult to find non-padded bras, which I find more comfortable. Marvel is shaped a bit like the Deco half cuts, in that it's great for moving my boobs from sides to front and center. Marvel has excellent support, and it's very soft, but sturdy. It doesn't itch or scratch anywhere, or leave deep marks. It's smooth under clothing, and it's cool in hot weather.

    In my quest for a new sports bra, this one was unfortunately a definite failure for me. There were aspects of it I really liked - the fabric is adorable and felt nice, and the band felt nice. For someone with the right shape, I'd absolutely suggest this as a good option.

    However, it's definitely not the right shape for me. To start with, as I found with the Deco half-cup, it's too shallow for me. There's too much fabric under the arms, and the tops of the cups gap even with tightening up the straps a bit to compensate. Additionally, the wires wouldn't lie nicely despite plenty of swooping and scooping, usually trying to ride up a bit (again, too projected for the cups) and cutting into my sternum if I tried to get the fabric to lie nicely toward the top.

    Best fit I've ever gotten from an unpadded/unlined bra. The band is perfect and I don't see any of the shape-mismatch issues I generally get with softcups on my shallow/tall (I think) breasts. However (of course), it's like the top edge of the cups is too long. It gapes outward and I can't quite fill that top edge. The wires are a little bit too wide, but that doesn't bother me much. The shape from the side is nicely rounded and pleasant. The fabric is very soft and comfortable and the design is subtle and pretty.

    Gotta say this is comfortable with one caveat:

    The side slings work only if you scoot the underwires so that they extend into the side slings, and even then they have a tendency to creep back to the center and poke me in the chest. Thankfully repairing this this is 5 min of sewing while watching Netflix.

    Otherwise, it's a great unpadded option for the small busted - it lifts without drastically altering shape. Because of the lack of vertical seams it accommodates my FOT shape without quadboob or pointiness, and can even fit the pre-period XX-FOT. In the sense of fit, there's no cup wrinkling, but it arrived from ... Amazon with 50,000 wrinkles, which nothing seems to quite remove.

    While the fabric is more solid than the average unpadded bra, it's definitely thin enough for headlights, and that's even with my nipples falling under the seam. Conveniently I tend to wear loose shirts AND don't really care. (All humans have nipples - got a problem with that??) The relative solidity of the fabric does mean that it's not a great candidate for icky hot summer.

    The straps ARE super wide and placed FAR apart, but I have huge shoulders so all well and good. Wide straps = comfier. The band is loose-ish, but so far it works on the tightest hook. It does seem to made of solid material so it won't stretch out if I look at it the wrong way.

    Like all Freya "nude" bras, this is SUPER pale, so you have to be an untanned shade of white for this to work under pale shirts.
