I think this fits! I know that Freya bras tend to run large in the band. The 30 longlines I had stretched out pretty quickly and since there are only two rows of hooks, I didn't want to have to sew it so I could continue to wear it. The 28 is a tad tight, but the band is stretchy, so I don't mind.
I have shallow boobs and this bra gives me cake on a plate look. I can hardly believe they're my boobs! I'd like the wires to be a bit wider, so I might bend them, but other than that it's great. The straps don't dig into my armpits either, another added plus. The straps are a little scratchy, but I'll put up with them.
I have the orange with white dots. I wish I could get another color, but that's ok. No one will see it under my clothes.
This bra is incredibly cute. I'd like for the band to be longer or for some boning because it tends to roll up. I love the way it makes my boobs look. The fabric of the straps is a little itchy, which is weird because the rest of the bra isn't.
A stunner of a set, that unfortunately isn't exactly right for my shallow shape. Still, if you're a fan of Freya's padded half cups, or in need of a Longline, this one's definitely worth checking out, as it's an absolutely lovely set.
This bra is wicked adorable. It manages to be both cute and sexy, a rare feat. It doesn't quite suit me, unfortunately. Hearing that Freya's padded half-cups ran small, I originally ordered the 28G - Freya » Patsy Padded Longline Bra (1222). Unfortunately, the gapping in the cup was too much for me to handle--it was the sort where if you stand up really straight and stick your chest out, the cup is filled, but at any other moment there's empty space. I'd rather have a bit of quadboob, personally, so I exchanged for the 28FF. As you can see, the cups are a bit ...shallow for me--there is empty space at the bottom of the cup yet the barest hint of a quadboob (especially, for some reason, on my right--smaller--side?).
Apart from my personal fit issues, I think the cups are true to size for Freya. The band I find actually fairly loose (though, perhaps, your typical too-big Freya 28); it doesn't make full contact with my stomach/back at the bottom centre, as if it's not tapered to fit my ribcage. The straps are stretchy and comfy. My biggest complaints are that 1) the lace pokes up and shows through clothing very easily (though this might be helped if I weren't a little too big for the cups...!); and 2) the perennial Freya longline problem: the band rides or flips up over the course of a few hours. This one definitely requires repeated adjustment.
Overall, I'm happy with the purchase: even if it's not perfect, this bra is fashionable, cute, and fairly comfortable. Read more 159 more words
The longline band may curl up a bit in front if you have a full upper tummy as I do, but it is absolutely worth it for the overall increase in comfort (dramatic) and general smoothing effect on back and sides. Strap placement is okay but I wouldn't want them to be a quarter inch further out -- for me, this is the limit. Padding is minimal, thankfully; I don't think it adds more bulk than a foam cup would.
This is another bra that fits radically differently when I swoop and scoop. Without doing so it felt unsupportive in the cups, and looked both too big in ...the cup and very wide in the underwire. Once I shifted things around, a few things happened. 1: The gore no longer sits flush against my chest; I can't tell if this is because the cup is a bit small or because my boobs are just more closely set than the bra design. 2: A small but visible amount of quad boob. It's confusing that this does not smooth out a bit of wrinkling at the top of the cup on my smaller side. Maybe a manufacturing flaw? 3: The underwires I thought were comically wide seem to be... NOT cutting into me in a way I thought was just a function of being squishy. Also, I have less armpit muffin than I have in any bra I've worn for a very long time. 4: I didn't realize that my bras were uncomfortably compressing tissue overall until I put on this one. Which feels much less restrictive, quad boob notwithstanding. Not quite there, but a step in the right direction. Now if only it looked better.
Note that I bought this bra secondhand, so I am not sure if there were any fabric changes as a result of washing. Read more 199 more words
i got this bra through bratabase and decided it doesn't fit the way i would want to. I've been wearing 32dd's for a while and i think this might've been an overshot possibly… maybe i just need a smaller band though! its adorable just not the right size https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> oh well
I can't say enough positive things about freya long lines. They offer such comfort and great support. I feel like the girls are fully locked and loaded in these. But the cut is still low enough to wear with dresses and v necks. I love love love these freya. Just make the wires a little narrower and move the straps in. You've got a near perfect bra.
I bought this bra because it was very cute. It fits well in the cups and gives good lift; my only complaint there is that it's a little too projected for me toward the center gore. There's a bit of wrinkling as well, but not an issue. The straps, however, have a seam running down the inside. I might just be sensitive, but for me it's very itchy and almost painful, making the bra unwearable.
