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.
