    28G

    Didn't fit

    This bra is sooo beautiful. I have always preferred Freya's aesthetic but sadly there hasn't been a lot of top fullness friendly style. But this bra is close!

    This is my first 28G bra. I had been wearing 28FF's but noticed minor quad boobs so decided to size up a cup on this one. My shape is projected, very full on top, full on centre, tall and narrow roots, extremely close-set, soft tissue and self-supporting.

    The band initially feels very tight when I first tried it on (after dinner). But I think it runs true to size.

    The cups have the top section made with stretch lace (without the annoying elastic ... on the edge) and bottom with mesh. I would say it is pretty top fullness friendly considering I'm not getting any quad boobs. The cups are projected, but not very narrow. So the wires are too wide on both sides, and I'm not filling out the right cup as my right boob is smaller.

    I love this color combination and how pretty the lace is.

    Overall it's an OK fit for me but I'm worried that I will get picky about it with time (like I did with so many of my other bras, so I have excuses to buy more). But I may very likely keep it because of the appearance.

      Wow! This bra looks so pretty on you! The colour is stunning!

    • 3

      alisa Thank you! I love the color as well! And surprised the combination works. If this fits better I would definitely get it in the pink cups/ grey dress combination.

    • 3

      I looooove Offbeat in both colors that it comes in, but I haven’t quite figured out the right size for me (yet).

      It looks like it fits you pretty well!

    • 2

      pretty_promise Thank you! It is such a pretty bra. I think it's true to size in the band and cups, but folks with less projection and top fullness may choose to size down.

    • 4

      I’ve seen a couple reviews of the Offbeat on here and it always looks very pretty! Convinced me to order one myself :) It looks lovely on you.

    • 3

      I also love this bra. The pink / grey is gorgeous too. I'd like to try it, but I'm a bit scared since Freya bras are hit or miss on me. Are the wires firm and supportive or more flimsy?

    • 4

      Rozelyna Exciting! I hope it fits!

      alisa From the perspective of a smaller band and medium cup (hence not as much volume), I would say the wires are not filmy at all, maybe average to somewhat firm? I don't think it's super firm, but I do feel slightly more pressure from the wires at the bottom of the cups than I'm used to. That may be better after the band is broken in though. I don't need a loooot of support being my size so I've never encountered wires that aren't firm enough.

    • 1

      Wondering if the straps bother you? I'm pretty new to the Bra-o-sphere/ABTF community, so I'm still investigating proper fit and styles, but the straps look like they're almost coming off of your shoulders? Yes? No?

    • 2

      BraOdyssey Welcome! The straps are fine for me. Maybe I have wider shoulders (?) so I’ve never had straps falling off in my correct size.

      kate166, oh okay...cool! : )

      It's maybe an option for my slightly FoT shape. Thanks for the review!

      smjwzhan I think it's quite likely to work for slightly FOT shapes :)

    28HH

    Didn't fit

    Honestly, I’m surprised this bra didn’t fit me. I really thought it would based on its shape and how it fit others. I’ve had my eye on it for a hot minute, and finally decided (thank you Pay Day) to scoop one up.

    It’s gorgeous. Sooo pretty, looks nice and delicate/feminine yet feels supportive. It has a lovely appearance on. But it’s sadly too small for my bigger boob. It’s quad-boobing quite noticeably.

    Positives:
    • A true to size 28 band from Freya, what a surprise!! 😂 love the fit of the band, perfectly snug.
    • IMMEDIATE PROJECTION!! Look guys, there’s no wrinkling at the bottom of the cup! I’m so ... happy because this hardly ever happens for me (especially in a UK bra!) but it makes it even sadder that the rest of the bra doesn’t fit lol.

    Negatives:
    • Only that the wires are slightly wide, but I would happily ignore this if the rest of the bra fit. But I think the wires would be significantly too wide in a 28J, however, I might still give it a try.

    P.S. Some people might find the wires on this bra a bit firm but they’re fine for me.

    This is cute and comfortable. As usual, the gore is too high for me but it’s manageable. I wish this was a two hook bra, as one cup size smaller only has two hooks. Sometimes I find the three hook band to feel cumbersome. I enjoy the pop of color on the straps. The cups for quite well.

    28HH

    Fits

    My shape: full on top, short roots, high set, very narrow/borderline Omega shaped, space between breasts, very soft breast tissue, pendulous, evenish to somewhat center fullness (5'1, short torso, store a lot of fat in my ribcage)

    I've heard a lot of conflicting reports on this bra, so here I am to add more onto that.

    I like the Offbeat a lot, actually! Firstly because its material is just so, so soft. It also has a lot of immediate projection, really thick and sturdy straps, and oh my gosh, isn't this colorway just so cute? Matching outfits with pink straps is such a dream!

    Most of the conflicting comments about this ... bra I've heard have been regarding the band and the wires. I actually got a 30H and a 28HH to compare, you can see my measurements for the 30H on my page. I liked the 28HH better, and I'd say I agree with the take that this is 'a true to size Freya band!' but I guess kind of with an asterisk? I'm used to 'true to size' meaning more like a half an inch to an inch smaller than whatever the band size is, and this 28HH stretches to 28 inches. Good for me who measures exactly 28 inches around snug, but keep an eye on that regarding where you fall in your band size if you wanna give this bra a try.

    The wires on this bra are way, way wide and also really firm. Neither of these things bother me except for some reason the gore was hurting me the first time I wore this bra? I've seen the gore on this bra twist on people with less space between their boobs, so maybe that has something to do with it, but I had to wear it with a bra liner kind of shoved upside down the first time I wore it. After that, it wasn't so bad. I guess the bra just molded to my shape better? I had a similar issue with the sides on my 30H - Panache » Olivia Balconnet Bra (7751) but that took a few wears before it stopped hurting.

    Overall, the Offbeat reminds me a lot of a softer, shorter Envy.

      I've been interested in this one for a while, and "softer, shorter Envy" sold me on it lol. I had an Envy a long time ago, and while it fit well, it was pretty scratchy.

      The first time I saw the duck egg Offbeat, I fell in love with it. The following link to a picture of it's backside was so enticing.

      https://www.bravissimo.com/products/offbeat-bra-fy394/#duck-egg-blue-fy394deb

      But, after reading a review from a fellow bratabaser, I saw how tall the wings were, it looked totally different from the backside photo in the above link. For bigger cups, the wings struck me as matronly. I am sure there is a logical explanation for this but regardless, my enthusiasm dropped off a cliff.

    32J

    Didn't fit

    When I saw this bra on sale I decided to give 32J a try. Turns out the cups are too small for me in this bra.While I can confirm that Freya usually runs a bit generous in cups and band, I can get away with a 30K in their bras but not any smaller. I also found the wires a bit wide for that it is only a J-cup and assume they be even wider in my regular size 30K. The top section is made of a soft strechy lace. The support wasn't that great. I don't recommend it unless you like softer more natural fit and don't mind it being not so supportive.

    36HH

    Didn't fit

    This is a super cute bra that seems like it would be comfortable. I actually tried this on once at a boutique, but it was a band size too small (I think she gave me a 32HH, but I measured more like 34H/HH at the time).

    I reeeeally like the colors on both this one and the Earl Grey (pink/blue) one. It’s a full lace cup, which is pretty comfortable as I stated before.

    Unfortunately, it’s either a shape mismatch, or I need to try a size down to a 36H. The cups were quite a bit big on me (obviously). The bottom seemed projected enough, though, and ... the gore tacked. It was way to wide on the sides, both with extra fabric but also wide wires that were kinda soft and flimsy. I don’t recall the band being too loose or too tight on this one, but honestly I didn’t make notes at the time and it’s already packed up to go back to Amazon!

    Anyway, might try this in a 36H, maybe even a 34HH since I can’t remember if the band was too loose or not.

    • I had the same impression of the wires being flimsy and the cup being unsupportive, but I was also wearing it a size bigger so it fit me about like this.

      Adler613 hopefully I’ll get to try this out again in a smaller size! Amazon doesn’t have one of the sizes right now (I think 36H), so I’ll have to wait.

      The gore almost overlaps on this one, isn’t that weird? They really are piddly, lol!

      What a gorgeous bra! I agree it looks a little big in the cup for you but man that pink is so pretty! I'm thinking of trying this one myself. My only other experience at my current size is with Elomi- would you say it's comparably sized? I've been trying 38H, but I think I'm 36HH, so I have an Elomi Kim on the way to try. Thanks for such a detailed review! It really helps!

    • Oh, that IS pretty! Great color!

    34J

    Didn't fit

    What a beauty. Ever since I first saw it I wanted it so bad. I finally ordered one from a swedish site with free shipping to try it out. It looks just like the pictures, it's absolutely gorgeous. The colors are perfect. The lace is so nice.

    This is a side support type of bra. The entire cup is made of stretch lace lycra. yes, the whole cup is stretchy!!! It doesn't have any additional lining, it's just the lace. It's very soft and lovely, not too stretchy either so you'll still feel supported. The straps are soft too and wide, and for once, they don't feel too wide ... set for me.

    I can confirm it does have 3x3 hooks in this size.

    The band is very TTS. In my previous experience in ~2014 or something, at around 32FF size, I found Freya to be very stretchy. This one is very good size for me.


    on to the negatives. The gore. It doesn't lay flat, it goes sideways or whatever, like it flips over on itself. I know Freya is known to have soft wires in bigger sizes so I assume it's because of this, as well as it's pretty wide. Also it has a bit of a flare to it at the top,

    The wires are wide as expected. however I have much less wrinkling than I do in other bras, probably because of the side support style, so for me, it's not that big of a deal actually in this bra.

    And finally, sadly and a common occurence for me, I get a fair bit of wrinkling in the bottom of the cup.

    I think the biggest dealbreaker for this bra is the gore. If it would lay flat and not flip on it's side, I'd probably keep this (or rather, return this one and order it somewhere cheaper lol because swedish pricing is insane). But yeah. Damn. It's so so beautiful.

    • Boo! What do you think the issue with the gore may be? Buckling from weak wires + heavy breasts? Or too much material / too wide of a gore for more close-set/narrow boobs? Combination?

      I had different fit issues with this bra, but mine went back too. It *is* beautiful and it was really comfortable for me, though the wires were very wide for me as well. I would 100% pick this up second-hand later, but for full price I wanted much more uplift and rounding than this could my rather soft tissue. It encased my breast tissue beautifully in the 30J, but the elf slipper shape was too much for my sensibilities at that price point. Better luck next time!

    • I have incredibly close set boobs but most bras I've tried with this high gore do actually sit flat, like, yeah they sit on my tissue sometimes but they don't flop around. I can't remember which one but I know one I tried in the past did this too, I think it was Panache Envy.

      I think it's mostly because the wires are so soft and has a weird flare. I'm not too sure. If it sat like, 2 cm lower I think it would have been better and might have worked.

      I'm not too fussed about the side shape for myself, it's not "too" pointy for myself but yeah. I might pick this up later if it goes on sale for like half price :P And then maybe try to adjust the gore or something. it's so pretty I can't even

    • Excellent review alidieux , thank you!

      I first saw the Offbeat on Bravissimo and the backside view of the band intrigued me. It looks oh so soft yet seems to be structurally strong. Viewing the Offbeat on other sites made the band look weird in comparison. Besides being tts, is there anything else you can say about the band? Oh, and thanks for clarifying the number of hooks.

    • It's pretty soft, silky material, kinda thick and feels sturdy, similar to Elomi Kim's silky cup material. The hooks have like super soft fabric on the inside, it's the softest out of all my bras lol.

      For the structure, do you mean like this kind of difference (elomi kim but most of my other bras have the same as Kim) https://i.imgur.com/aMDcIkt.jpg

      It has a different shape as well as the "strap" doesn't continue (or whatever to say) on the bra. it's just a normal seam.

    • The band in your photo structurally does not look like the image on Bravissimo and is exactly like what I was seeing on other sites. I wonder how often that happens? Thanks for providing the comparison to the Elomi Kim, they are similar.

    32E

    Fits

    My shape: Narrow root, close set, center full, even fullness, functionally full on bottom, immediate projection, and apparently very narrow shoulders (straps are basically always too wide set).

    This is a beautiful bra. Not broken in, the band runs very firm (at least in the dark blue, which is gorgeous BTW), but I’m not sure if that may quickly change. I’m going to wear it for a while, and then maybe try a 30, too (my usual size). I have a terrible problem with most straps being so wide set that they really, really hurt my armpits where the strap meets the cup. While I still wish these were ... even a little closer set, they’re really not bad at all.

    I have a tilt to my sternum, so the gore was really stabby at first due to its height. But! I realized there was extra space in the wire channel. So, I pushed the wires down as far as they would go and added some hand stitching to keep them there. Now, it’s not a problem.

    My right side is a bit less full on top than my left, but you can’t tell at all in this bra. No wrinkling anywhere.

    36E

    Fits

    The most important thing to know about my breasts is that they're very pendulous and the tissue is very soft. I have relatively narrow roots, medium height. They're also splayed and wide-set.

    I've had some success with Freya balconettes before, but very limited success with their soft cup styles. The lack of stretch anywhere tends to mean cups are left gaping and wrinkling badly at the top. When I saw that Offbeat had a stretch top panel, I had to give it a shot. And I'm glad I did, because I love this bra so much. The color is great, the height is great, the fit is great. I ... was shocked to read a review of this bra that said the 34J cup is full stretch, because the 36E is not! The only section of the cup that's full stretch is the top lace panel.

    True to Freya, the wires on Offbeat are relatively soft, and they're also a little on the shorter side of things, both at the gore and at the outside of the cup. I don't mind this! It's hard for me to find bras that don't have at least a little puckering at the IMF, even if only on my left side, which is more projected, but this one is just deep enough to skirt by without the dreaded wrinkling. The pink straps are a nice touch. I'm a fan!

      yolibrarian , you've added another bra to my list of ones to check out!

      I'm a pendulous, narrow-rooted 36F who has always been charmed by Freya's colorways but was morose because Freya seems to specialize in bras for people who need wide wires.

      The Offbeat looks lovely on you, and I'm glad to hear that there's a Freya that could work for me.

    34GG

    Hasn't set fit

    This bra surprised me, it was a lot prettier and sturdier than I thought. I didn't feel like the lace was itchy or anything.
    Though it seems just a tad small in the cup for me - if I jump up or shake my body, then I get overflow in the top pretty severely. Its almost happening when I wear it normally. Doing the "sweep" thing and making sure the cup covers all breast tissue gives me overflow though.
    I decided to order it a cup size bigger, although I think the underwires will likely get too long and poke me, or get pushed down. Oh well, I can only try.

    Updated on May 07, 2022 Flag this


    • That looks really nice on you! I agree on 34H. Also, I don't think the underwires will be too tall, but underwires are always all up in my armpits so maybe I'm biased :P.

    • busts and them wires always poke me in other brands XD With Freya I atleast get a good fit while I can bend the wires a bit and then they don’t poke. I think it’s because Freya have shorter wing height in general. Freya and Elomi are so far the only bras I’ve tried that didn’t poke me (although Freya can pinch a bit, thus the need to bend the wires)
