This is the first time I've tried a "lightly padded" Freya. I own and love the Deco which is a thermally-molded, padded contour bra so it is thicker, and I take 1-size up from the unlined styles (Deco = 30G, unlined = 30FF, hence my id name).
The band fits well and the cup feels mostly good however I wanted to try 2 cup sizes to tell the difference. The half-cup style sits lower than a balcony, it is basically a demi bra. For this reason as well as the light padding I went with the larger G-cup because the girls sit more comfortable without fear of falling out. ...The shape is overall very good, nice and rounded both parts: inside cup and tissue above. This FF has a slight quad-boob effect going on and the center gore is just a bit farther from laying flat than I would prefer.
The colors are stunning and seem appropriate for year round. Floral shades of reds, browns & oranges with olive green trim. Some images online gave me hope the trim would be dark yellow but it's really a soft olive green which compliments the red tones very well.

This has been a great bra for me; a perfect fit. I can wear it all day without a problem, and the fit is perfect; I get great lift and rounding over the half-cup without a hint of spillover. This fits better than the Freya Nieve half-cup in the same size; the Nieve was a bit too small, and I have heard that many of the newer half cups are a bit bigger.
I've spent a long time until I found it. Lovely floral pink / green cups, green lace on top of the cups, cute ribbon with a rose detail between the cups and at the straps. Can't say how good it looks like.
Well.. that said.. As for other Freya half cups, the shape is definitely not for me!! The cups are not wide enough so the bra cuts into the sides, the straps are too close together, and the centre gore is quite high for me. The shape is more for someone full on top and close set boobs.
So sad the shape doesn't work for me! After keeping it for over a year in the drawer thinking that it might work one day, I reluctantly decided to give up.
I always thought that the shape of this bra was perfect, but the fit was a bit off. Now that I look at it, aside from the fact that it's obviously too small, I'm realizing half cups are not a great style for me, support-wise.
I have not worn this in a long time, since it would never stay up, and the straps were always a bit too wide-set to be comfortable, but I notice that the material on the back has stretched out badly, which does not compare favorably to my Masquerade Maia, a bra I wore all the time, and which has held up quite well.
Typical Freya halfcup construction. Doesn't really work perfectly on my breasts but is wearable. One of my boobs is full on bottom, and the other is even. This bra gives my even boob cakes on a plate cleavage, but none for my FoB one. Nipples sit very close to the edge of the cups and occasionally spill out during the day.
Hands down one of the most beautiful bras I've ever seen. I bought this a while ago when I was wearing 32H, hoping a 34G would be generous enough to still work. I've finally accepted that it will never fit right.
The cups are incredibly soft. The interior of the cups are lined with this charcoal grey mesh and are so comfortable even in the wrong size. The cups give a rounded shape under clothes but doesn't give in-your-face cleavage.
This bra is fairly shallow, and not compatible with my shape. But even if I had it in my current size, 32HH/J, I would still wear it. It is fairly girly with the tea rose print, and candy pink trim, but in a visually stunning way rather than young-girly. If I had it in my size, I would probably do a photo shoot with it.
This is probably my best-fitting bra, though still not perfect. The band is on the tightest hook and it still has too much room to stretch. The cups are nice, though it's oddly a little big for my right breast. Very pretty. Though sometimes is just feels uncomfortable, but I'm not sure if it's because I'm used to wearing too-loose of bands.
Edit: Apparently this bra's cup is still a bit small. r/ABraThatFits suggested a smaller band and bigger cup, so a 28F.
