    The band, gore, and straps are perfect. The cups are entirely too small, shallow, and have low coverage. The long-linedness of the bra is cozy and supportive, and I wish all my bras had such a wide, tall band. The quality and finishing are quite good. The strap adjustments and hooks are easy to operate. The color is a serious f---weasel fuchsia, with a true teal and tangerine accents: lots of pop. If I didn't pop out of the bra as well, I would certainly keep this one.

      Wow this is at least two cup sizes too small. From you other pictures it looks like your shape is full on the bottom (hard to tell). You may have better luck with the Cleo Piper ( http://bra.pe/MFhB/ ) in a 32H. The Cleo Breeze could also work if you are more full on top ( http://bra.pe/MFFz/ ).

      Thank you! It is a comically poor fit, isn't it. :) I will check out your suggestions!

    • You could try going up a couple cup sizes as well if you love this bra! Looks like it could potentially fit well. I think you would really love Comexim and Ewa!

    I tried this on, figuring it would be a cup size too small. The colors are so bright and fun that I couldn't resist. It *almost* fit! The band was just large enough for me (I wear a 32E in other bras), but I got some quadboob and felt a little squished. I'm full on bottom, projected, and have pretty short roots, and there weren't gaps at the bottom or top of the bra like I've had in others. There are only two columns of hooks in the back. The longline was tricky to put on but very comfortable - I would happily buy a Freya longline in my correct size.

    First of all, this bra is super cute. I'm not one for pink, usually, but the festive design of the whole thing was really quite charming. And oh, the bows, they're hot pink + orange which are probably my two least favorite colors, but I am so grateful for bows that are neat and straight and don't go crooked and have the tails hanging straight down, and the embedded bow design is so rad.

    As expected, the band is super loose, I barely had to pull to get it around me. Also, there are only 2 rows of hooks, sadly. The Freya halfcup shape really works well with my boobs and lifts them up great, and the fact that the wires are, as usual, about an inch too wide doesn't really bother me. The longline part is not very long, but it does provide extra support and is really comfortable. The band wrinkles between my right and left ribcage, but oh well.

    So I just got the Freya Parade longline (literally about half an hour ago, I just tried it on). I love it so far! I've wanted it since I first laid eyes on it, I can hardly believe I actually own it!

    This is my first longline, and initially I was worried about the potential weirdness that would happen with my ribcage. Would it feel weird next to my rib flare? So far, it feels fine, though time will tell. I will have to get used to the sensation of having a bra there again, as my old bras used to sit on that line where my rib flares ... are and it was uncomfortable. However, since the underwires are in the right spot, we're already a step ahead. I don't think I could wear a longline longer than this, as things could get messy with the rib flare. But the slightly longer band is just fine.

    Onto the bra itself. Like most Freyas, it's much brighter than stock photos indicate. The part I was most excited about (the little Peruvian-inspired pink woven part of the band) looks nothing like the photos, unfortunately. The seams and lace don't seem too obtrusive, which is good. The color is already so bright I don't know how many shirts I'll be able to hide it under.

    The band is snug, probably because my rib flares are wider than my actual underbust. I hope that will make the bra last longer as there are only two sets of hooks! It was kind of a chore doing all the hooks but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
    My usual gore-warping issues happen in this bra, just like all of the other bras I own. There's a hump in the middle where it doesn't tack, then tacks from the IMF down to the edge of the band. And the inner half of the right underwire doesn't actually touch my chest. But I can't even get the band of a compression sports bra to do that.

    The cups seem to run slightly small. Either that, or my boobs actually did grow. I'll double check my measurements. At any rate, I had some barely noticeable quadboob after swoop and scoop on the left side and the right side had a lot less gaping than usual. The wires are a nice width, a little narrower than my Daydreamer, and it definitely feels more projected than my Freya Rapture. I don't think it's enough quadboob to warrant getting a 28FF at this point, but if it gets any worse that's where I'll be looking.
