    I only tried on this bra in a local shop, but I did not buy it as it did not fit me AT ALL.

    General comments:

    I have only just hopped on the correct-size-bra-band-wagon and still very much in the process of figuring out what works for me. This is not made any easier by the fact that I am breastfeeding (10 months and counting) and still am not used to fact that I have BREASTS, as opposed to my pre-pregnancy 'breasts'. Also, because of breastfeeding, my size, shape and density isn't exactly constant. Anyway, I've so far found only two bra models in a size 60 band (both Freya) ... in local stores and this review is for one of them. I tried this bra on in 65E and 60F, neither of which fit even close.

    Bra description:

    A pretty bra made out of black mesh with pink polka dots and pink. It's quite cute, though it looked better on the hanger than on me, the fitting issues aside.

    Fit:

    The band felt very snug, but it was the first time ever I tried on a bra that didn't close completely at the tightest hook, a revelation! Also, the centre gore laid nice and flat, something I haven't seen too often before. I guess that after a lifetime of wearing over-large size 70 bands it just takes some getting used to wearing a band that is appropriately tight.

    The cups were a decidedly less successful story, though. Honestly, I've never tried on a bra that was so incompatible with my shape as this Freya one. In this 60F the underwires did not encircle my breasts convincingly. I would have preferred them wider, but this bra wasn't available in a larger size. Also, the shape of the cups was ... odd, to say the least. My larger right breast ALMOST filled out the cup, but there was still a strange deep fold at the top of the cup. This was even worse on the other side. The strange thing was that despite what seemed excess space at the top of the cups, the front edge of the cups STILL cut into my breasts on BOTH sides. Loosening the straps didn't remedy this and only resulted in an even sadder look. The cups didn't feel supportive and the shape they gave me was just ugly. The fabric didn't feel that comfortable against my skin either.

    Conclusion:

    This bra simply isn't meant for me. The wires are too narrow and the cups too deep. What's going on with the front edge of the cups I don't know, but it clearly doesn't work for my wide-set, wide-based, and relatively less voluminous breasts.

    I really like the way this bra fits. It has great structure and support (most likely because the band size finally fits!) and the straps give good support and slips off less due to it's wider width/more friction. I find it to be rather comfortable too.

    It has a pretty colour and pattern. However, it gives a more conical kind of shape to the boobs than I would prefer.

    Nonetheless, I think it's a good bra that helps to keep the boobs in place. Just wish it had a rounder shape to it.

    This is my second try in finding my right size and I think I've found it. Originally I had tried a 28G that was very wrinkly and wide in the cups. But the 28F fits much much better with just the slightest "looseness" at the top of the cup. I think I might be FOB/ shallow breasted which may account for the tiniest bit of wrinkling on top. And I suspect the wires might be just a touch too wide for my breasts. I find the band to be nice and snug for my 28.5" rib cage ( on the outer most hooks ). This is definitely a "pointy" bra

    The apex of this bra is about a cm too high for me, and there seems to be a shape mismatch. The cups may be too large as well, but if I lean over I seem to have enough tissue to fill them, but the cups wrinkle up at the top when I stand and the top edge of the cup pulls in a weird way. I sized down from my normal 30E for a tighter band, and I was pleased with the band's firmness compared to an unpadded Cleo's 30.

    Well, this was among the first bras I ordered (from figleaves for like $30! woooh!) and I discovered I'm really a 28FF or a 30F. However, this fits okay when I'm at my smallest, with only mild orange-in-a-glass. If I'd ordered in a 28FF, it'd be perfect---the bra is lovely and comfortable! Very very very stretchy band though. Beware, if you need a 26 or true 28 band, this is more like a 30.

    Not good for shallow breasts; better for more projective breasts.

    This bra feels very tight, in a distracting way. I'm not used to bands so tight but it is not something I would want to wear, even though it measures large for a 28 band. Part of it I think is that the underwires press into my ribcage. The gore is also irritating and comes up too high on my sternum, maybe something that could be altered if the underwire was bent. I can fill the cup except for some wrinkling on the bottom, but due to the shape of my breasts and the shape of the cup, it makes my breasts look very pointy. The pointy shape also cuts into my breast at the top, it's not a quad-boob because the cups aren't overflowing, I am just slightly fuller on top than the bra allows for. The strap placement is good. On the loosest hook, I can stretch the band about 2 inches away, and my underbust measures 29.
