    30E

    Didn't fit

    Labelled a UK 30E, but purchased as and comparable to a US 30DDD.

    This just does not work for me. It's supposed to be full coverage but it is not! It actually has smaller cups than the Freya Rio, and about the same cup dimensions as the Freya Pollyanna but with a slightly longer underwire, so this bra is really more of a plunge, not full coverage. The center (main) seam running horizontally across the cup is place far too low by about 1". Maybe they did that on purpose because it's a "retro" style, I don't know, but it's the main reason why these cups run too small ... on everyone despite them having an appropriate cup depth for the specific size. For example, my 30E/DDD has a cup depth of 8.75" which would coincide with that cup size. Because the seam is place so low it causes the breast tissue to be pushed down instead of up. I might as well not even wear a bra if I wanted to go for that look. (Btw, I look bigger from the side naked than with this bra on...that should tell you something)

    The cups almost look like they are a size too big on me in the pictures, but I can assure you it's just the angle. They are not cut high enough for me and you can see how they are pushing down on the breast tissue, but I think going up to a 30F/DDDD would be too large. The band is too big for me, unstretched it's the same measurement as my ribcage. I bought this when I was still trying to find my right size, I was wearing 34D and 32DD but the bands were too big and this one looked like a nice basic.

    I have altered the straps, in an attempt to get this to fit I cut and resewed the straps back onto the elastic part of the straps by a little over 1". They hold together just fine, did a couple rows of straight stitching following by a tight zigzag stitch over that.

    This band is super stretchy, though the strap is pretty much not stretchy at all.

    I actually quite like the fabric on this one, it's a smooth, fairly thick fabric. The three piece cup feels well made and I really wish it fit me. Unfortunately, it doesn't. The cup wrinkles too much , though the dimensions feel right besides the depth. The strap placement feels really comfortable.

    As this is too big in both the band and cup size I won't be keeping it.

    This is a sturdy bra. Supportive, gives a great shape under clothes.
    Probably the bra that fits me best as of today (although it wrinkles a bit at the top of the cup), but don't wear it often as I don't like how it looks (I like lacier things and pretty patterns). Plus the top part of the straps are not elastic at all, so they sometimes tend to slip off.

    The band is too big and the cups are too small. What's really strange is that the cups seem too big on the sides, yet I still get the quad-boob-effect on the top. Also, no matter what I do, the wire doesn't stay flat against my chest in the center.
