I purchased this bra in white.
First off, I really like the material this bra is made from. It feels very nice to the touch and has an interesting texture without being scratchy or uncomfortable.
The straps of the bra are fully adjustable, which is always a bonus for me. I don't really like straps that only adjust on part of the strap. They also slide smoothly while adjusting, but don't move once in place.
The cups give my breasts nice lift and shape without coming all the way up to my neck. It doesn't show under lower cut tops like some bras would.
The band feels nice and firm, ... but not overly so. Very comfortable.
The gore is a bit wider than other bras I've tried. The gore doesn't quite tack against my sternum since my breasts are set quite close together (about a finger's width). It isn't really a big issue, but something I thought was worth pointing out. The bra still fits nicely regardless, and if I push the gore against my sternum, there is no quadboob.
Not really important, but the closure for this bra is 2 clasps per. I haven't found many bras in my size that have less than 3.
Overall, this is a very nice bra, and I would recommend trying it out.

I like this bra. I have a constant problem of finding bras where the cup is deep enough but the underwire isn't too wide and tall. I used to constantly have to alter my underwire (ie bend the crap out of it, remove it, slide out and trim it, etc). The freya underwire is much more narrow and not as tall. I in no way have to alter the wire, its perfect as it is. the cup is a little shorter than what I used to normally wear. I will say I liked the Freya Firecracker a bit better. The straps aren't quite a comfortable. and the top of the cup just makes me feel like it might slip as i am bending down, crawling under desks while I run wiring etc. it doesn't actually slip, so I wear this bra fine, just not quite as confident in its ability for something not to shift/slip.

This did not have enough immediate projection for me. There was a lot of wrinkling at the bottom and it kept sliding down, as my breasts were looking for more forward room, which led to quad-ing in the top. This would work better for more shallow breasts, that work in a more closed top fit, too.
