Attention Narrow, projected breasts: 10.5" inches of depth in this 30F. Wow.
Oh, how I longed for luminous embroidery! The online photos depict glowing colors strewn across a black background. Sadly, the flower colors are demure in reality. The red straps and gated back are beautiful combined with the black. And, a soft lace is used for the wings. The muted colors make this easy to return.
The straps easily adjust along the entire length. They are firm and comfortable in addition to a vivid, slightly orange red. They are more wide set than I like.
The gore is 1.1" wide and has a cut away. The wires are firm. The fabric and lace soft.
I can't tolerate gores taller than 1.7" or wider than .8". Not for me.
This is a beautiful bra with a distinctly Spanish look to it, and the fabric is very sensual to wear. I normally wear 32's, but because reviews said the band runs big I ordered the 30. I would have been better off ordering the 32 anyway. The back is very sexy and despite (or maybe because of) only having 1 hook, I didn't have the dreaded back fat. The underwire is a full 1/2" shorter than the channel along the outer edge, so there is some spillage under the arm. The wire is also quite flexible, which conforms to your shape, but doesn't support all too well. It also seemed to stretch more than the band when I measured it. The gore is painfully uncomfortable on me. It is 1 1/8th" wide and sits too high on my close-set breasts. The top edge of the cup has 1/4" wide elastic which cut in on my short rooted breasts.
It is a beautiful bra...if you're lucky enough to fit you.
This bra has a very pretty pattern although the straps are a bit too patterned to wear under strappy tops. The cups and band fit great but for a plunge, this gives me absolutely no cleavage which is a shame. The gore is also too high and stiff meaning that it is painful to wear this for too long.
I have splayed shallow FOB breasts. The fit is very similar to the Freya Fancies plunge bra. It gives me a front and center uplifted profile. I'm flat on top and get very minor wrinkling of lace at the top. The gore tacks. While I feel supported there's noticeable bounce when I walk quickly. The straps are a bit scratchier than Fancies and similarly angled outward toward my shoulders. I have fairly wide shoulders and can see someone with narrow shoulders having trouble keeping the straps in place. I like that only the top of the cup is lace because I've had issue with nipple chaffing in fully lace cups. The design is sexy playful and very pretty though not nearly as locked in place as other bras like Panache Envy.
Love the look of this bra and I adore the back! It is unusual for me to find a bra that isn't locked like Fort Knox in the back. The gore lays flat, the band is fairly stretchy, the straps are fully adjustable, and the bra is comfortable. I do get a little bit of quadding along my larger breast. It is t enough for me to get rid of this pretty bra. I will need to look for a smaller band soon though.
Absolutely beautiful bra that will work with someone with more even fullness than I am. I am fairly flat on the top of my breasts, which causes some rippling in the top of the cup. It's not enough to be a deal breaker with this particular bra, but it is definitely not the perfect fit for someone in my shape-- wide, low roots, full on bottom, not very full on top. The underwire does seem to be of average width, though I have heard Freya's plunge balconies tend to be narrower-- it doesn't seem to be the case with this bra.
