I really wanted this bra to work for me - I love this fabric, it's nice and stretchy, not too thick or thin, and cute! But, the cups are just too wide and shallow for me. It gives a great shape under clothes, and side support is awesome, except the straps are so far apart on me that I don't think I'm getting any side support anyway. I keep thinking I can make this work somehow, but I'm pretty sure it's useless. Sad face.
I think today is the day I've realized I need narrower wires, not wider.

I really like the way this bra pulls things toward the front, since I'm always struggling with looking wider than I am. The bra is comfortable and well-made. My one concern is that it's a little low-cut, and so I'm constantly at risk of spilling out. Overall a really nice bra though!

My third and final attempt with the Freya Marvel. I have no idea why I was so determined to get a fit with this bra -- but I now admit defeat.
Attempt 1: Size 32F. Too small but this was my fault; I figured there was NO WAY I could fit into an FF; the calculator over at ABTF was defective. So I bought a cup size down. Too tight all over, quadding like crazy.
Attempt 2: Size 32FF. Much better but I still had some spillage. Plus, it actually minimized me by a good inch or so. Then I read that this bra ran small/tight in the cups. Ah ha! I must need yet another cup size up to get a perfect fit.
Attempt 3: Size 32G. I fill out the sides and bottom on the bra but there is now a good bit of gaping at the top after vigorously S&S. Sadness.
I now think this bra is a bit too shallow for me...Live and learn, I guess. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

This is my first Really Great Bra!
I have only recently found out what my real size is (not a 34E but a 32G/32FF), and have been on the hunt for a great everyday bra. For my wide set, evenly full (I'm right in between FoT and FoB), wide rooted boobs, this bra seems to be it!
It gives me very round, perky, and uplifted boobs, and most importantly NO quad boob. I would describe the shape it gives my ladies as "young-girl-breasts": not too projected, and no "but crack cleavage", but high, round, firm boobs that stay put as you move. Contrary to what others report, this ... bra does not push my boobs to the center at all.
The cup is much lower than the full cup and even many of the balconet styles I have been miserable in for years, which seems to be the main reason the quad boob is gone. The cup fabric is surprisingly un-stretchy, which means the bra is very supportive. I also have this bra in a bigger cup size (32GG), but that one gapes a little at the top (good to have for bloated days though).
I especially like the straps: they are stretchy, but not too much so, and quite comfortable.
Another plus is that this bra works as a T shirt bra; the seams are not too visible and there's no frilly lace business going on. It actually shows much less than my moulded bras (but that might be because I've never managed to find a moulded bra that fits even remotely decently, but that's another story).
On top of that, it's rather cheap!
In all, I am a happy happy boobster, and this bra has restored my faith in bra-kind.
*edit: after some time I noticed that I get a bit of empty space at the bottom of the cups, ad this bra is just a bit too wide & shallow for me.

I was told to size up in the cup with this bra, but in doing that the bra was far too large. I will not try again with the Marvel regardless as the wires are very wide. They reach far under my arm and not suited for my narrow root at all. Otherwise, the bra is very pretty.

Yet another bra that doesn't fit me properly. Cup is too small, Band rides up. Straps sawing my arms off. But still a marked improvement from what I was wearing. Super cute every day bra. It may be plain and nude, but it's adorable. It's quite thin so no hidig if you're cold (or pieced teehee) in tight tops. Despite being thin the material feel very "heavy duty" and provides a lot more shape and sport than I anticipated. I'm very impressed. It has little lacey, loopy details all the way around which only exacerbates my arms saying issue. I never considered if I may be narrow ... or not, though I've read that the width can be an issue with most smaller band, larger cup bras. Speaking of smaller band, I also read a lot of reviews that stated this (unlike other freya models) ran true to size. It was larger than I expected. I currently measure 30" underbust but it can fluctuate and though I have back fat, my ribs lack much padding so I'm afraid to go down to a 30 band. Either way, on the tightest setting this seems to fit... Until a half an hour later when it rises up and drops my boobs out the front. *sad face* Nobody likes droopy boobs. Also as I wear it the quad boob gets worse and worse. There is a very slight gap at the top on me as well but I imagine that's due to the fact that I don't have boobs at my armpit shoulder junction! Maybe if I tried this in a smaller band and larger cup it would work? But I doubt if the straps would be close enough together still. It's a lovely bra and again, better tahn what I've had, but it kinda hurts. It's a good starting point though to figure out where to go next.

I can not tell you how excited I am to have a second nude bra! While Freya has a lot of cute bras, few of them are really wearable under very light colored or lightweight shirts because they are colorful. This bra, like its sibling, has a seam that runs up about the middle of the cup, and the wings appear to come up a bit higher near my arm, but not uncomfortably so. I doubt that I'll like it as much as my Freya Deco, but we'll see!

The fabric on this is very nice and slightly shiny on the outside. The seam in the cup runs right about up the middle and hits my tit. This might be problematic down the road. This bra seems to come up a bit higher around my arm than the others, although not uncomfortably so! We will see if it beats my 32FF - Panache » Jasmine (6951) out as black bra of choice!
