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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> 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.
This is a great narrow and projected bra that is more friendly to FOT/tall roots than other Freya bras. I have very tall roots and while the other unlined Freyas I've tried were way too closed on top for me (Rapture Plunge, Starlet Plunge, Icon Balcony, Rio) this one only gives me the tiniest bit of quadboob that's barely noticeable. Other than that, I have absolutely no complaints. I have quite a bit of immediate projection and it accommodates that perfectly, and the gore is low enough for my center-full and extremely close-set boobs. The wires are quite narrow - this is probably the only bra I've ever ...had that doesn't extend past my tissue on the sides. The shape it gives me is very lifted but still natural - it's not at all pointy, but it's not super round like Cleo.
The band feels true to size. I've heard many complaints about Freya bands being loose or too stretchy, but this one is quite firm. The straps are also firm, and the adjusters stay in place very well. It seems like a very solidly constructed bra, despite its delicate appearance, and is very comfortable and supportive.
An important warning: it runs large in the cup. I wear a 28E in Panache/Cleo and sized down to a 28D in this bra. I suspect it doesn't actually run two sizes large and I've just had to size up in Panache/Cleo because of my projection, but I would definitely say it runs one size large as I have never worn a 28D in any other bra.

Very short, slightly narrow, projected, close-set, even breasts...
Temperatures, including Heat Index, have been 114 degrees F here. And, I tend over 200 species of plants. In my desperation for an alternative to my wool sports bra (yeah, I love natural fabrics), I ordered a Freya Ooh la la. The subtle color shading and geometric embroidery strongly appeals to me. And, 28G measurements looked favorable.
The gore is too wide. And, the band is not long enough to compensate for the necessary gore alteration. I will need a 30FF for the gore alteration. The band is very firm and may fit those who need sub-28" bands well.
The lift is fantastic. ...I was prepared for a "droopy" Freya: Ooh La La is delightfully elevating https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> The immediate projection and apex projection are grand, too. Predictably, my very short roots do not require the height of this cup. But, a minimal alteration will remedy that issue.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Ooh La La. However, yesterday I received Comexim Eve. The fabrics Comexim uses cause me to reject all others, so far. Ooh La La, although supportive and beautiful, pales in comparison to the comfort and softness of Comexim Eve. When spending my day in sweltering heat, I will choose comfort first.
This bra was incredibly tight when I first received it, so I only wore it in the evenings for the first couple weeks (easy for me because my job requires a sports bar all day) and it stretched to a good fit. The gore pokes my sternum a bit and sometimes I think the straps are too wide, but absolutely love the bra despite those things (maybe that's just because it's my first bra that fits). Also, my husband loves it too https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Have to be careful what shirts I wear because the stitchwork and my nipples can be seen through real thin and tight material.
As always, the straps are murdering my armpits by being too far apart. It does not help that these are thick, stiff straps, which bite in, so if you're narrow framed like I am, and have this problem with straps always being too wide set, either pass on this or replace the straps with thinner, softer ones. The biting in of the straps makes this unwearable after only a couple minutes. I like the fit of this bra so I will be keeping it and replacing the straps. Yes, they will still be in my armpits, but at least won't be hurting.
I have tall roots and have ...problems with plunges that are closed on top cutting in. This is a great fit for my narrow projected breasts. There is no gaping, no wrinkling and no cutting in on my larger side.My smaller side has a little bit of wrinkling. It is not the most supportive bra. The wire is firmer than I like because I don't have much padding around my rib cage, but it doesn't seem to bother me. I will have to alter this band down to a 26, but it is not as stretchy as some freya bands. It's a cute design and is prefect with this warmer weather.
This is my second try with this pretty, sheer bra, but it's just not going to work. My boobs are kind of wide-set, splayed, shallow and soft, and one side is about a half-size smaller than the other. On my big side, the volume was right but the wire was too narrow and lay across some breast tissue on the side. On the small side, the volume was just too big, and in a sheer bra like this I can't use a cookie to make up the difference. This might work for you if your roots are less wide than mine and if your boobs are closer to the same size.
This bra is more sheer than I expected, but it's pretty. The cups are just a bit too big, though; on my smaller side the wrinkling at top is really visible. Too bad. I'll send this back and try a smaller size.
I wanted to try this bra because it had narrower cups and had good immediate projection. And reviews said it had decent support. It was the best of any bra I've tried so far at the underarm not wrinkling in the cup. In most bras I wear 28GG, but I've found in the Freyas 28G is better on me. Even so, I had trouble filling the top of the cup on my smaller breast. My boobs are dense, therefore very heavy, and this bra didn't give me as much lift as I like. I found the band unbearably tight and I could not have worn it for any length of time without an extender. Usually Freya are pretty comfortable on me even when they are new.
