I thought this will be like Freya's padded bras but apparently it's more like the non padded ones. It's way too big, both in the cups and in the band. Actually the band is ridiculously big, it measures 65 cm without stretching and stretches easily to 86 cm. It rides up even on the tightest hooks. There's a lot of empty space in the cups. It's nice that straps are fully adjustable but, as always in Freya's bras, they are too long for me. Cups are made of soft and very thin fabric. Overall, it's a nice bra. It is minimalistic but looks great. I would love to try it in my correct size but I'm afraid that 28 band would still be too big.
I definitely got this in the wrong size, but I think even a cup size up wouldn't fit properly because this just isn't geared towards my shape. Which is a shame because it's a nice spacer bra! I'm close set and this bra just wanted my boobs to be more spread apart. I think it would work well for someone who is wider set or splayed, FOB, and projected.
This bra has molded cups but the material is thinner than the Deco and not enough to prevent nipple show through if that's a concern to you. It is very light and comfortable however, which makes up for that. The cups are about an inch too wide for my narrow rooted breasts but they don't cause any discomfort while wearing like the Deco Strapless did. The apex of the cup is quite high up but even as a full-on-bottom girl my breasts have enough room. In the Deco Strapless there was such a lack of immediate projection that the cups literally folded on the bottom near the wire ...to provide the needed projection. The straps don't dig into my tail of spence which is usually a problem for me but not with this bra! Center gore is a nice height to hold the girls in whereas the Deco Plunge lets them spill out. Cup separation is on the narrow side, but works fine for my breasts that have a 3 finger gap between them. This style is a much better fit for me than others but wish Freya would make narrower wires - my breasts do not extend into my armpit and I don't know anyone whose breasts do!
UPDATE: My breasts have grown and this bra simply can't take the added weight. I've had it less than 3 months and the wires no longer come up to the top of the gore. It has not held up well. Read more 140 more words
