Soft material, not in the least bit itchy (not sure why others complained about that)
Thick straps for better support, plus the embroidery on them prevents them from readjusting on their own
Supportive full band that (for once for Freya!) runs true to size and does not slide around
Because it's a plunge and also a balcony style (This is the style sold to me by Nordstrom, it is not a balconette), it gives great lift but doesn't leave you with that pointy look. I can wear this under ... thin t-shirts and although the seams do show through just a tad, it is minimal compared to other lace bras.
Why can't Freya line their bras? I don't understand...just a thin material of the same size, it would give an even rounder look and be just a bit more warm. The material is very thin, so show-through is a problem if you're cold.
I wish the wires were a little bit taller on the outer sides. I'm more average-full busted, but for someone with fuller breasts (the total circumference) this would probably result in side spillage.
The cups of this bra are cut exactly the same as the Freya Arabella. The only difference is this one fits better because the ribbon on the Arabella prevents the top fabric on the cup from stretching so it can give a point and quad-boob look. The black lace on the tops of these cups seem to have a bit of give so the pointy appearance is not as bad.
I never wear this because it's uncomfortable. For a few minutes it feels ok and looks ok, but after those few minutes the cups wrinkle and sag, while at the same time cutting into breast tissue at the top of the cup resulting in what appears to be quad-boob.
