This bra was given to me - and I'm really pleased to have it. I wouldn't have thought to buy it on the basis that Freya bras are really over, IMO. (I remember them when they were SO good. Before the dropped the pricepoint and started catering to the youth market.) This band is snug by Freya standards. Though it's a plunge(ish), it contains breast tissue at the centre cup well. It's beautifully made and the pattern is totally gorgeous. More in real life than in photos. The matching thong fits VERY small though. It's quite projected, a bit wider set than I prefer but I like it.
Bought a year ago, this used to fit (my size changed, again), and it stretched out too much to keep being comforable - it's only half a size too small in the cup, so I'd keep wearing it if it wasn't for the band.
It's cute but not as pretty as other Freya's for my taste, cream with orange and blue flowers. Also, it gives me a pointy shape (more than the Frankie, even though it's the same build). There's lace only at the very top of the cup, making it wearable under a tight t-shirt or a light top.
One of my better Freya bras, though this does (like Arabella) have a slight tendency to make the boobs look a bit pointy - the cups are long and deep, rather than wide.
The fabric is lovely and very comfortable - the quality can't be argued with. There's very little digging in with wear and the little bit of stretch makes it fit really well - the straps in particular feel nice.
The print is much nicer in real life than it looks in the photos, a lovely winter floral with blue and orange. I got this with the thong bottoms which are also surprisingly nice, I'd go for briefs normally but had a bit of a change and was glad I did!
The thing I really liked about this bra was the fabric choice; I like the beige, blue and orange colours together.
The fit didn't work for me; the band fit great as usual but the cups were an issue. I'm not sure if it's the size or the way the cups are shaped, but the tops of the cups were definately cutting into me.
I also had this problem with the 28F size, although the cups were too big, the tops of them were definately snug against me. If my breasts were large enough to fill the 28F size, I think I would probably run into the same problem.
"I also had this problem with the 28F size, although the cups were too big, the tops of them were definately snug against me. If my breasts were large enough to fill the 28F size, I think I would probably run into the same problem." with regards to how the top of the cup was fitting me. I think this bra is for someone who is full on the bottom, which I thought I was but this bra style just didn't work for me.
Meh. This was my first Freya, and it's just okay. I really don't wear it anymore. The cups used to pinch (quadraboob) and now they are too loose. I think the non-stretchy fabric of the cups is not very forgiving to shape/size changes. Also gives me a pointy shape.
