    This was a giveaway that I was somewhat iffy on, because the last Freya Half Cup (Kiyoko) was a fail for me, but it looked like maybe it was different enough that it would work. That, plus my size and volume change last fall that made me think that maybe it would work. As a giveaway, I really had nothing to lose.

    Spoiler alert: this bra does not work for me, but it’s *so close*!

    Visually, this bra is stunning. I adore the print and details like the print extending onto the straps, the neon yellow bow and geometric dangle charm at the gore, and neon yellow bows ... at the straps. The straps are pretty thick, too. The print does cover the band as well. And the print is very colourful...black base with what I think is flowers but like an artsy style. There’s a tiny bit of black loop edging on the top of the cups. Is there a proper term for that?

    The feel of this bra is very smooth and silky and I think it is actually made from spacer fabric. It’s kind of squishy and not terribly thick. It’s a 3 part cup with 2 vertical seams, slightly diagonal. I really like the feel of it.

    Now on to the fit. My shape is tallish but shallow roots (functionally short), narrow to average width, and fairly projected and pendulous. My tissue is soft, center full and is even to fob...I think that my volume is pretty close to even, but I lean more fob functionally because my upper tissue isn't very full despite the volume being fairly evenly distributed. I’m not sure, but I think that my breasts might fit into the “long and lean“ description. I typically need lots of immediate depth and average apex depth. To a degree, my soft tissue is malleable which can give the occasional appearance that they are fuller on top, but that’s just them being tricksy.

    This bra is surprisingly narrow for a Freya, however despite the 3 part/2 seamed cups, I simply don’t have enough immediate projection. I can feel it wanting to slip down my chest out of my imf pretty quickly. It’s a little bit better if I use the tightest hooks. I also have a bit of a compressed look. This is likely because I have tried to tighten the straps a little bit to minimize the small gaps. I also think that it’s a bit tall...it is not giving me cakes on a plate cleavage. It’s not really looking like a half cup on me at all.

    *If* I use the tightest hooks, I *do* feel like it is a better fit. I feel it is a better shape and more flattering, but it is still a bit shallow and I don’t know if it’s going to slip from my imf with long term wear. I have not tried it, but in the short term, I think that it’s going to slip. I don’t think that going down in the cups would help at all.

    I think that I have to experiment on a non working day so that I can get a better feel for it, though I expect to be resisting it. I have been having a really hard time with this bra because I like *so much* about it, but it’s simply not the best fit.

      That is a super cute print!

    • 1

      Right?! I’m still going to give it a try before I decide whether to list it again or not.

      This looks like it fits you better (at least visually) than all other recent bras you've tried.

      It's a lovely bra and appears to fit well. Pictures can be deceiving, though.

    • 1

      Thanks everyone. I think that it’s a better fit with the straps looser and the band tighter. I am definitely going to try it out for a few hours. But it’s definitely not a half cup on me.

    • 2

      I think it looks like a good fit *in pictures* too, but I've had a freya half cup and it was shallow at the wire, so I can imagine what you mean.

    • 2

      Yeah Wilderness1 ... it’s tricky. It looks ok, but actually wearing it for more than a few minutes is more telling. And compared with the fit of the Kiyoko, this is more coverage and less cakes on a plate. But it’s still a nice bra. It’s possible that it would fit better in a 28F/FF.

      Wow, what a gorgeous bra!! Looks beautiful on you even if you say the fit is not ideal. Also, you have a lovely way to describe your shape, it feels like we are boob twins when I read it. ☺️ I think the bra is so nice and pretty that giving it another try is worth it to see how you feel in it.

      Awww, thanks braluv! After all the comments, I will definitely have to give it a good try before totally writing it off on the fit.

      So I wore it for several hours last weekend m only, in my apartment only, and only with some bottoms on because I was helping a friend learn to measure her bras. I feel like I was ok in terms of it not slipping from my imf horribly, but it did chafe my right underarm somehow. It’s possible it’s only because I was wearing it alone and my right arm was rubbing something on that side which irritated it, though under a shirt, it might be ok. So I’m going to try that this weekend. If it’s still bothering me, I’ll list it, otherwise, I’ll try to make it work.

    • Calluna I saw that you listed it. So sorry it didn't end up working out.

    • I did. I wore it all day today and it left spots on my skin from the wire tips because it’s a better fit (ie feels like it’s not going to slip) with the tightest hooks even though it’s comfortable on the loosest ones. I took it off when I got home and put a different one on.

    I had no experience with Freya padded half cups, but I liked this print, so I took a chance and ordered it - though in theory this style shouldn't work for me, as I'm projected, narrow-rooted, centre-full and need a lot of depth at the wire, and I'd read that the Freya padded half cup styles are in general shallow and wide. This one seems...okay? on me.

    Yes, the wires are too wide, there is empty space in the sides of the cups, the gore doesn't tack and the cup design pushes my breasts up rather than out. But it pushes my centre fullness up without quadding and gives some cleavage, while still giving decent support. I like the thin padding which shapes and uplifts my soft breast tissue, however, the shape at the front of the cup/apex seems a little flattened, not round or forward enough, which I find odd and unflattering. I do need to wear an extender for the band to feel comfortable around my ribcage until it stretches out.

    • Shape mismatch this time. Loose fabric at upper edge makes you think it's too large, but if the gore does not tack, you need more volume. The Gaia Vivien also needs more volume, but it's a better shape for you, looks like.

    Super bright design! It looks really nice! 3-parts lightly padded cups with vertical seams, rather open on top. It gives very round and uplifted shape, but the seams are very visible under clothes. Very comfortable, fully adjustable wide straps. True to size.
    I can't say it really fits. It's rather good for my smaller days, but for the fuller ones it's really too small. The part with hooks and eyes is scratchy for my skin

    This bra is on the narrow side for a Freya half cup. It is almost perfect, but still slightly too wide for me. The band is true to size and has only stretched slightly after several wears. The gore fits comfortably and tacks on my chest. The straps are very thick and comfortable, but would not work well with strappy tops. The colourway of this bra is truly spectacular - I adore it.
