Beautiful, delicate, and feminine bra. Love how sheer it is while still being fairly supportive. It gives me a pointier shape than I am used to. This blush color has a deep cup measurement so while I'm usually 30E, I think 30DD was best here. It doesn't look like as much of a plunge on me because of this, but I'm appreciative that the cups aren't so tall. I think the amount of projection it allows for is good for me, but the fit in the top of the cup is slightly off - sometimes in-cup quad, mostly bubbling at the diagonal seam while the top seam lies ...flat.. So this was a fun adventure, but this bra still isn't topping my Cleo Lily or Marcie in terms of being wrinkle and gape free. Excited to try more Freya unlined bras though - Jasmine for sure, and I've always loved the look of the Arabella plunge which is apparently the same cut as this.
The blush color looks a bit whiter on me than I would prefer - I would love to grab this bra in black, but who knows how it would fit then. Read more 86 more words
So, I now own this bra in 28DD and 30D, as I just grabbed the 30D when I found it for 70% off. My bra size fluctuates pretty wildly over the course of the month, so having this in 2 sizes that each fit some of the time is a good thing.
Ooh La La runs deep in the cup and small in the band. Even on the loosest hook, the 30D's band fits like my other 28 bands. I suppose it will loosen over time, but the band of my 28DD hasn't stretched much in the months I've owned it, so maybe not.
The pale pink is pretty. ...These pics were taken under very warm light, so it's really a more neutral pink than it looks. The mesh is entirely transparent, if that matters to you. It's incredibly comfortable as long as the band isn't too tight. There's slight gapping along the inches between the place the strap attaches at the shoulder and the end of the underwire...but I get that with most bras made in the last few years. I don't know what's changed in bra design because it isn't an issue in my older bras. (I'm so tempted to put a dart in, but I'd probably regret it.) Read more 102 more words
So the Ooh La La is definitely NOT as similar to the Arabella as I was hoping. It's sort of freakishly deep for this cup size, and I'm not sure what's going on there. The one I have runs about 1.5 cup sizes large. The good news is: this gave me the perfect opportunity to try some alterations out. All of the measurements I took for Bratabase were pre-alteration.
The wires on this are very narrow and the shape is definitely FoB and immediately projected. The mesh is soft and cool and the straps are quite wide (but fully adjustable). Overall, I'm a bit disappointed that it didn't fit to begin with (WTF is with the sizing on this Freya) but it ended up working out well.
This is a comfortable bra that fits my shape very well. It is so far one of the prettiest and best fitting bras that I own. The quality is surprisingly good for how lightweight, sheer, and delicate this bra is. The straps are pretty stretchy but the band is nicely snug (for now) and the cups are deep. It gives great support but no extreme lift. It is also very breathable for those that live in a more warm climate. You should wear a cami (or silicone nipple covers) if you have more projected nipples and you are concerned about them showing through a shirt.
I've heard great things about this bra. Learning that it is narrow and projected, something unusual for UK unlined bras, sounded like it could work for me. It looks very pretty as well with its sheerness, cute and gentle blush, and beautiful embroidery. I usually wear a 28F, but sized down to 28E in this one because I've heard it is very deep. Plus my super narrow roots was going to need the wire width of a 28E. The wire did fit somewhat perfectly at my IMF, and the depth was fine except a little too deep on my smaller breast. The gore height was also low for ...Freya's unlined plunge balcony, which is friendly for my super close-set breasts. Everything fits great on the wires and lower part, but the upper part (where the embroidery is) cuts into my tall roots, and flattens out what should've been a natural slope. My boobs looked like two cones on my chest with the upper tissue stemming from my chest in a sharp angle, from being completely flat to a sudden slope. It looked awful. I've read other reviews that says this bra is open on top for some, but for my tall roots and full-on-top breasts, it was not enough. Sadly I can't seem to find an unlined bra which is narrow, projected, open on top, and has a low gore. It's like all plunges will be closed on top. I believe it's some kind of physics. I'm disappointed this bra didn't work because of its wonderful quality and appearance. Read more 152 more words
This bra was recommended to me for its projection and narrow wires. I definitely agree that this bra has way more immediate projection than most other UK bras that I've tried. It's very beautiful and the wires are great (finally something that will stay in my IMF!), but sadly I don't quite have enough fullness on top / inner fullness to pull it off.
I love this bra. The cups are deep and roomy at the base. The wires are the perfect width and height for me. The band is true and not overly stretchy. The amber colored embroidery on the black base is beautiful. The whole thing comes off as very lovely and sensual, but for me, comfort is key, and this is a 10-12 hour day bra.
The only issue I have is that the straps slip of my shoulders a bit, but honestly, I have yet to find a bra that did not have this issue. I will definitely buy this again in the next color range.
This bra is fiery sex in sheer lace. I have the matching garter belt - I only wish I had the matching panties too. While it fits great, I would not describe it as perfect (unlike most freya unlined like my Freya Ignite). It's a little on the pointy side of natural (more pointed than other unlined Freya bras). The top piece of the bra (the neon red diamond part) also cuts in quite flat - if you're FOT you may want to stay away. This bra was designed for FOB boobs. Mine are FOB to even, but even with how short they are, when I put my shoulders back and take a deep breath you can see something weird going on at the top of the bra. It doesn't affect how the bra looks under a shirt (and you can't see it when I'm standing/sitting normally) but if you have tall boobs it may be more noticeable. Of course, with how sexy-gorgeous the bra is, that may not matter.
I don't think this bra has enough immediate projection for me - I have some wrinkling at the bottom of the cups. The cup also seems much larger than my other bras by Freya but they are the sports (4002 and 4892 in 34DD) so that may be the difference, either way I end up with a LOT of gapping at the top & middle. Definitely not a fit on me. Maybe if I size down to a 32D/DD I would have a better fit there but with the other problems it just isn't worth trying that out.
i need this in a 30DD or 32D. i had hoped (not sure why...) that even tho it would likely be a cup too big, that it would still work for me, since i have super tall roots and since it's stretchy fabric (not molded) that i could pull it off. i was SADLY mistaken it fit decently, but it gave me an odd shape, likely due to the cup not being tight/small enough. But super comfy and love the soft ribbon mixed w/the see-thru mesh.
