First, I'd like to start with this caveat, the cups are too big on me. This is confusing as I quad like mad in Freya's 28F Deco Honey and 28FF Tartan longline, and my 28G Deco Spotlight has a bit of empty space below the strap, but otherwise fits. My breasts have inner fullness but are not close set, with narrow and possibly shortish roots, and some projection.
This bra is very cute. I love the turquoise color, everything seems well made, the band fits TTS, the wires are wider than I need them, but not uncomfortably so. The straps are a little wide ... and cut in my armpit a bit, but thats true of virtually any bra in my cup size. The cups are not as tall as many bras in my size range, which is a plus for me.
Speaking of cup size, yes, definitely too big. The cups are wrinkled in the top but otherwise okay. If this bra were returnable, I would probably send it back for a 28F. Since I bought it from another bra database user and this color is discontinued, I plan to alter it instead.
Finally, many reviews say this bra gives a pointy shape, and it may. I can't say for sure since I didn't fill the cups.

Freya Patsy is a great for for Full on Bottom breasts, with an underwire that doesn't go up too high in the underarms

I just had a breast reduction and am trying to sell off or trade some of my old bras for styles in my new size. Unfortunately I can't model them because they no longer fit. This bra was worn before I hit my max size, but when it still fit, it was one of my favorites. I had a lot of fullness on the sides and I found that it helped contain the tissue without the underwire digging.

Got this from a bratabase member on a whim (knew I needed something more projected than what I have and decided to try the first thing I found -- got 28FF instead of 30F because Freya seems to run stretchy in the band) and the fit is comically wrong for my shape. It is definitely more projected, but not in the right places.
Things I loved: the color (teal) is just gorgeous.... I wanted it to work so badly just because of the color. The band fits perfectly as well-- nicely snug on the loosest hooks.
What was wrong: everything else, ha.
My shape is fairly even, leaning ever so ... *slightly* to FoB. In this bra, I filled out the bottom of the cups, all the way up to where the seams meet, and felt like my boobs were trying to bust out of the side panel, but the entire top of the cup was totally empty. The combination of lack of room on the outside edges and too much room in the center made my boobs/ nipples point in at each other, which just looked bizarre (especially combined with the empty lace in the top 1/3 of the cup). This bra makes me feel like I should avoid plunges in the future and stick to balconettes/ half cups, which is what I'm usually drawn to style-wise anyway.
The wires were also uncomfortably too narrow (kept wanting to stretch/ pull them wider to fit around me and scoop & swooping to try and get all the way in there), especially on my larger boob, and the gore dug in painfully. (Still sore nearly 24 hours after taking it off.)

This bra is beautiful. The fabric is really high quality, and the colour is a nice teal. The band is a nice 28, but unfortunately the cups are just a smidge too small for me. I bought this as my first foray into Freya, and unfortunately it turns out I'm definitely a 28G in their soft cups. It looks fine at first but it's a little too pointy and there's definite quadboob present.

Patsy, round 3!
Well, I tried this on when my boyfriend was in the room, and he gave an unprompted "that looks nice!" comment. Considering how difficult it usually is to get even a prompted comment on clothing out of him... the black with light pink polkadots is certainly cute.
At first I thought that this was the right fit for me... but when wearing for a little longer while trying different cuts of clothes on top, I think I've gone too small in the cup and I get quadboob. I also get some wrinkling of tissue in my armpit which I think is shoved-up breast tissue, even though the wire width feels comfy.
I think I trended towards the smaller cup hoping that a tight fit would mitigate some of the pointy effect that this bra shapes, but I think that's just how this bra is!

This bra doesn't match my shape and therefore it looks kind of pointy. However, 28FF does seem to be the right volume for me in Freya, I think I just need a cut that isn't quite as projected in the apex.

This bra is almost perfect. A couple of problems though.
First there is a little bit of wrinkling in the cups. The top lace lays flat but at the nipples I don't quite fill it out. Also it has quite a pointy shape to it. The wires are too wide for me as well. I measure 27 snug UB and the band rides up.
My boobs are very close set (less than a pinky finger between), Plunge bras are the only ones that will work and the gore on this is the absolute perfect height for me. Also I found the straps pretty comfortable and I was just going to fix the riding up band issue with a rixie clip.
It's very cute, if you can get over the pointy shape it gives you. I'll be returning this one, though.

I don't usually like unmolded bras but this one gives me a great shape! I have very projected breasts & this bra gives them a slightly pointed I but for sweaters it's great! The only issue I have with this bra is the slide thing on the straps. The plastic digs really badly into the top of my collar & there is a mound of fabric right underneath the plastic slider where it was sewn on making it even worse! I may have to sew the straps shorter to I can slide the adjuster away from my collar bone.

I don't have anything particular to write about with this bra. I mean its like several of the Cleo's I own and reviewed. It's not my favorite bra but its one that fits comfortably and without issues.
