without an extender, this bra band is too tight. unlike most of Freya bands, this one is made of an awesome thick material that is much more sturdy than the thin mesh like bands on bras like the Totally Tartan. because the band is too tight, it also skews the cups wider and shallower. with an extender, it a little better, but this bra is definitely still not right. ive worn it one or two times, but the fit is too poor to put it in my rotation
on my larger L side, the cup seems like an okay fit, except for right near the gore where it doesnt ... lay flat completely. it lifts up *just* a bit, and if i push it down all the way, i get a bit of quadboob. it doesnt bother me much, but it probably means i need more cup depth all around. especially since, on the smaller R side, i get almost NO gaping, which is very uncommon for me. if the L side fits, the R side usually gapes.
in addition, on the smaller R side the cup does this weird thing where the upper edge folds from *within* the cup. its the strangest thing, and i cant get it to photograph. the odd thing is, this exact same weird fold/rolling thing happens in the other size i have in this bra, also in the same place on the right hand cup. im not sure if its because the cup is too shallow, or what, but no amount of washing and smoothing it down to dry will reshape it. its been this way since i got it, brand new.
i think the wires are too short on the sides as well, so i shove them from the gore into the underarms since the gore cant lay flat anyway. even then though, i slide back out the sides after a few minutes of wear. the straps are a bit too wide, like nearly every half cup ever, but they are thicky and stretchy so i can probably deal with them. its uncomfortable to have them sitting in my arm pits, but experience tells me i would probably get used to them over time.
