From what I can tell, a little-talked about Freya. This must be a much older style for Freya, as the band is actually TTS, if not small, and the fabric is stiff and supportive. A little interesting to have a look back at what Freya was, vs what they tend to mass-produce now. In a nutshell, it's good for narrow roots, average projection, and even fullness.
Really nice everyday type bra. If I filled the top of the cup a little bit more, I would definitely keep this bra. I wrinkles on the top though, so I won't be keeping it. It is not at all stretched out even though it has had a previous owner before me. It presses a little bit into my sternum, but not very much. The band is slightly too tight, but also, not very much!
It's a bit difficult for me to be objective about this bra. I wore it for a while. I did appreciate the lower gore and cup design. However, I wore it before I learned about swooping and scooping. It seemed acceptable. The right cup would leave red marks on my breast from where it continually bit into the skin. Then I learned how to push my boobs into a bra, and my Phoebe became the worst fit ever. I had so much quadboob. No more Es for me.
Lord, I love this bra which I got in beige and then in the Tia colourway - and also a fantastic pink-based geometric pattern. How I wish I could find others of them because I return to them again and again. I've worn them once every couple of weeks for YEARS and the bands have only just loosened to fasten on the middle hook. Excellent for full on top breasts because the tops of the cups are quite open (but still supportive). It's sexy, uplifting and terrific.
I purchased this bra on eBay as defective, possibly because of the rippling of the outer layer of fabric/mesh. Its obvious with clothing off (see photos) but doesn't show up once I have clothes on.
Freya bras always seem to tack in the center for me and this one is no different. Although this bra is defective the fit is still great and has that classic Freya 3-part cup shape. I also have this bra in beige.
After a short time the side support wires dig in causing pain. I've learned to live with it as it was my 1st 'you've found the correct size so walk out of the store wearing it-bra'.. Freya pieced bras like this one do not shape me well enough for everyday wear. Unfortunately, it has been relegated to wear only on off days doing chores.
