This is the most gorgeous bra I have ever owned. I have the "Fruits" colourway in pink-orange with moss green trim. It is bright and summery and VERY colourful without looking garish or childish. I am really upset that it is discontinued and hard to find, because I would want 2-3 of these (and maybe one of the padded halfcup versions in a 30G, as well).
This bra fits true to size in the band (tighter than other Freya 28 bands, which is nice) and a tiny bit large in the cup. It is marked as "did not fit" because there is a bit of loose lace at ...the top of the cups, but it is still quite comfortable to wear, looks great, and is supportive. It does not poke. The wires are narrow-medium width. It would be a good fit for full-on-top boobs because the lace detail does not cut in (I have evenly full boobs and a lot of bras cut in at the top)
It seem to be quality construction - seams are all reinforced, and the band has the strap material used as a detailing (which is quite firm), so I don't think this will stretch out too much.
The only negative comment I have is that while I appreciate that Freya incorporated a mossy green in one of their bras (my favourite colour) the lace and frilly details seem a little bit fussy for my tastes, and the frills at the band are a little scratchy. Overall, I'm thrilled with this bra. Read more 151 more words
Gah! So close! This nearly fits my bigger side (just a little bit of unfilled cup) and is unfilled significanltly on my smaller side.
The band feels good on my 26.5" ribcage, the cups are narrow enough, and the bra brings everything front and center. I also like the olive and pink color way. This is a wonderful bra for those who need narrowness and projection.
I bought several from the same online seller out of which this was the one I was most disappointed with. It's very pretty, but it looks really odd on me. It makes my boobs look too smooshed together and pointy for the rest of my body making my shoulders look wider than they are. If I don't swoop and scoop, the top of the cups gap a little bit. My boobs are on the shallow side which causes a wrinkle along the seam from the nipple to the straps. There are also some small wrinkles on the outer cups from it pulling up the sides of my boobs and not encasing them more naturally.
This bra is so gorgeous that even when I put it on and saw the fit issues, I was at first tempted to keep it. The sumptuous, gleaming olive trim is to die for, and the autumnal color palette is a rare treat in the lingerie world! I love the dreamy colors on sheer mesh. It feels like a very comfortable bra, but alas, I'm really quite "shallow", and as such, it's not flattering to my shape. The cup is too deep, resulting in some wrinkling in the top half of the cup. At the same time, the cups are too closed, cutting slightly into breast tissue at the top edges. Together, this makes for a pointy look. The band also rides up on me a little bit when on the loosest hook. I measure as a 28, but size up to a 30 often... apparently, there's no need to size up with Freya.
Definitely not a bra for my taste. Since I have pointy bottom heavy breasts, I want a bra to make my bust look round and this bra didn't make it. Quite the opposite, it gave me a terrible pointy shape that could even be descriped as sharp - it seemed like I had two mountain peaks under my shirt.
This bra fits me about the same as the Freya Erin, though it's brand new so a bit tighter in the band (which is good). The little rosettes on the start of the straps and at the gore are pretty, as is the general washed color design. It's comfortable and flattering.
This is probably my new favorite bra. It is so pretty and has a cute ruffle detail along the bottom of the bra. The cups are deep and narrow, like usual with Freya. Nothing pokes and the material does not itch; very high quality. The band may be a little firmer than other Freya 30 bands that I have, but not to the point of being uncomfortable.
This is the most beautiful bra I've yet encountered. The cups fit me nicely though I should have bought a 28G, the band is too big for me. It's not padded, not even lightly, though it says so in the description. There exists a padded version of this bra.
Drawback: gives vintage-y cone shape. Still to beautiful to resist, though!
(The model is the same as the newer Keisha Crystal Plunge Balcony Bra, the difference is only in the colour of the fabric.)
