The reason why I got this bra was because I really liked how the Freya Fearne Padded Half Cup Bra (4093) fit me. Since this was somewhat similar, I decided to get it. Well... hmm... It DOES fit though, and the cut is very similar to the Fearne. However, I wouldn't call it "padded" as it would be more apt to describe it as "heavily lined". To be honest, I didn't quite like it as much as I wanted to. It's cute though. I got the "Ink" colourway, a dark blue with fuchsia lace ribbons/trimmings. Now, why didn't I like it? I suspect it's the material. ... It's too "slippery" for my taste and it's super stretchy. What I liked in the Fearne, I did not find it here. The bra just wasn't "firm" enough if that makes any sense. It fits on the loose/bigger end of the 34E spectrum.
What I liked:
The pretty colours!
For a "padded" bra, it's quite light so it would be good for summer.
What I didn't like:
The material - it was too "slippery" for my liking, even the straps slide!
The super stretchiness - the straps are stretchy too...

This was billed as a plunge balcony; while it might be a plunge in balcony land, it's no real plunge.
The gore is high, and digs into my sternum. I'm close set, and although I wouldn't consider the gore to be wide, it's too wide for how high it goes on me.
The wings are relatively high, but they're not uncomfortably so.
Straps are wide set and dig into my underarms and slide off my shoulders incessantly.
The shape is rounded and mildly "cakes on a plate" and seems to accommodate my FOT/Even immediate projection rather well. The gore is too high to really have cleavage (for me).
I'm fond of the pattern. Polka-dots are nice, and color-wise it wears like a black bra.
I wasn't going to keep this bra, but it turned into my daily. It's not fun to lounge in though, I find myself taking it off when I want to relax at home. Also the band, while not a very snug 34 to begin with, definitely stretches out with use.

Love, love this bra. It sits in all the right places. Unfortunately, I lost weight and the band was too big, but I fixed it with a Rixie clip. My one complaint is that the front seam sometimes shows with t-shirts, but really it shouldn't be worn with thin shirts anyways for that exact reason!

This is the closest fit I'm likely to get in this Freya style. The band is a little tight, and the wires don't feel quite wide enough, but the 36 band only works for me on the smallest hooks, so 34 it is. The straps feel a tad narrow as well. Not a terrific fit, but I think I can live with it. It might become more comfortable over time.
What I do like about this bra is the rounded shape that it gives me. I'm not a fan of padding, but there's something about the styling of this bra that makes my FOB boobs look fantastic. Really ... rounds the girls up and points them in the right direction. There's a lot of support in the side panels. I even get cleavage with this bra! My breasts are a bit wide set, so cleavage has always been an elusive dream. This bra delivers.
That said, there are very few pieces of clothing I can actually wear this bra under. The seams are very visible in a T-shirt, and the lace on the cups stands up, rather than lying flat on the top of my breasts. This is a bra to wear under medium weight or heavier shirts. Probably good for winter, under lots of layers.

I'd tried this in a 36E and it was too big in both band and cup so figured I'd try a band down and a cup down. It fits nearly perfect, the cups are a hair too tall for my short roots yet, but I think going down to a DD would cause major quad-boob. It gives a nice shape and looked fine underneath a tank top.

Overall very comfy, very little gapping, but not enough imediate projection, pushes underwire past imframmary fold. Will keep, because of comfort, and under shirt silhouette is great, almost a t-shirt bra, despite being a soft-cup.

Didn't know this was shallow when I purchased it, which probably explains why the cup doesn't fit quite right. It started gaping at the top after a little while, and I also didn't quite fill the bottom. The band stretches out quite a bit, so I'd likely need to size down to a 32. The straps are too far apart and dig into my underarms causing them to roll whenever I move my arms forward(like when I'm typing).
