This is probably a good bra. It is NOT a good bra for me, though. I have a narrow torso and narrow breasts, and the wide wires and wide bridge in this bra pushed my boob out to the sides and made me look chunky. Also it was not very comfortable, the wires felt as though they were cutting into me. Maybe it just runs larger in the cup than other Freya bras? I don't know, this is the only Freya I have tried.
Pros: seems to be sturdy, not a very stretchy band, the band is wide enough to prevent bulging, 3 hooks in the back, leotard back.
Cons: VERY wide underwires, very wide bridge, the fabric in the cups is not attractive and seems kind of cheap, (I expect better from Freya), cup chafes the front of my armpits, cup fabric started shredding after only a handful of wears.
I tried this bra out and I cannot recommend it to other women with large breasts.
I normally wear 40 and some 42 bands, if I want to wear 38 band with Panache I always have to use an extension. But I could close the Millie on the tightest hook at first try with room to give. I might even have been able to sqeeze myself into a 36 band if I had been so inclined.
Short, the band is loose and stretchy. What makes it worse is that the wires are soft and wobbly too and stretch along with the band. The fabric of the cup also ...tends to give to pressure. I found it wholy unsupportive and not suitable for larger sizes, especially not if you have soft breasts.
However the Millie is a sister model of the Freya Polyanna. If you find that you like the cut of the Millie but dislike the wobblyness of this bra try the Polyanna. The fabric of the Polyanna is much sturdier and far more supportive, the band doesn't stretch as much and the wires are harder and less likely to give. Other bras with the same cut are Freya Nancy, Freya Latisha, Freya Edith and Freya Feya, but I don't know how supportive these are. Read more 108 more words
