I am so in love with this bra! One of my first bras I purchased after finding this site was the Freya Pansy. Despite its ugly pattern (IMO) I feel deeply in love with its fit. After finding this one I was super excited because it seemed to have the same cut but a much more beautiful pattern.
Bra Review: This bra fit extremely similarly to the Freya Pansy. It is great for my close set and full on bottom shape. The lace on the top holds me in without causing any quad boob and the straps are perfectly set (not too wide for a small frame). Because I bought ...this used, I can not vouch for how the band was when it was new, but this one is definitely a bit stretched out for a 28. Never the less, it fits great.
The material is very soft and comfortable and I love the lace top. It is a sweet green that is not too neon. The pattern on the lace is also very cute.
Overall: I am in love and would gladly purchase another one if found. Read more 76 more words
I bought this bra because the Freya Arabella is a pretty good to great fit (depending on time of month) and I'd heard this cut family allowed for slightly less upper fullness. Which I think is true - although the cups look laughably too deep initially, once I've swooped and scooped it fits the larger breast quite well, with far less upper apex emptiness than the Arabella. I do still get the tiniest Freya wrinkle, though. I might look into taking in the upper lace section, because it gapes something fierce on the smaller breast.
Band is stretchy but firm, what I've come to think of as typically Freya.
Very short, projected, close set, even, slightly narrow, center-full breasts....
This fits remarkably better than 28G Freya Pansy. This cut has more immediate projection and more space for outer fullness. And, the shape is more rounded. If you have tall roots, Pansy would be a better choice because Morning Meadow's cup is 1" shorter. For me, this is fantastic.
The immediate projection here is good, but not good enough for my very projected pair. The cup seems shallow in the outer quadrant. This helps move the breast toward the center and effectively keeps them out of my armpits. The center projection is better than most and the cup accommodates full ...on bottom breasts. If your breasts are round, you may find a flat area in the outer quadrants. My breasts are omega-shaped, and subsequently, flattened on the outside.
If this bra hadn't slid out of my IMF so quickly, I would have happily added it to the "summer stash." But, it slid quickly and dug in (100+ other bras have done the same). It just doesn't have enough center projection. Sigh. The straps are unique, wide, supportive, and lovely: photo added.
I did not anticipate liking this fabric, but it is much easier to appreciate in person. It, too, is a happy bra
This is another bra that has become too small before I really could start wearing it. Was borderline tight when I bought it, but now its not wearable without an extender. Even then I get some quadding and or boobs escaping on the outer side of cups..
Stretchy band. Tiniest bit tight for my 31.5 inch ribcage but still comfortable to wear. Fits well, nitpicking the cups are a bit taller/less open than I'd really prefer but it's not a problem, no quadding or anything. Straps are annoying! I don't know what's with Freya and their bulky, unattractive straps. They don't irritate my skin but they're far thicker than really necessary. Not a deal breaker though, we'll see how this bra holds up for a long wear.
This Freya is a very cute lime and white stripe spotted with blue daisies and trimmed with embroidered mesh along the top edge of the cups. The straps are wide and comfortable and detailed with matching lime bows. Unfortunately, that's about all I can say positively about the way it fit me particularly (a 30E would have been more ideal I believe). The top edge of embroidery along the cup has no give and it ended up giving my breasts a strange shape with a pointy edge along the mesh and fabric seam in the cup. Perhaps if I was fuller on top, this wouldn't be such a problem. The underwire also poked into my sternum quite fiercely on one side.
I couldn't resist buying this bra because it's so cute! However, I've discovered most Freya bras just don't fit my breasts. I get wrinkling at the top, but it also cuts into my breasts. The band is quite stretchy, and the straps are fully adjustable.
I love this bra. The thin material is great for summer wear. The wires are nice and short, no poking under my arms. I also like how the center gore is lower, it doesn't poke into my chest. My only complaint is that the straps have a detailing on the edge that makes it a tiny bit scratchy. It gives my breasts a slightly pointed shape and not a lot of forward projection.
