This is my least favourite bra. The metal bits on the straps dig into my arms and left a mark and made me so grumpy, it was absolute torture day and I couldn't wait to get it off. I had to put a band aid over it at work. Whose stupid idea was putting a sharp metal object there? Rampant stupidity. The bra is a tight fit and the underwire dug in and hurt, and left a red mark. I bought it in my size in black and white. Both went directly in the bin, I wouldn't even want to give it away to someone else because I don't hate anyone that much. If I must say something nice about it I would say it looks good and has okay support. But really that's just a compliment for my own boobs.
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.
I tried the 30GG and the band was way too small. So I tried the 32FF, and the band is mostly good. I don't fill out the cup fully since I have short roots, and I'm having some pain when wearing it. I'm still undecided if I'm going to keep it or not, it's a bit of an awkward fit but looks cute.
After wearing this bra for a couple of weeks, I now feel as though it is a great fitting bra. I have gone back to wearing a couple other bras lately, but they just don't provide the right amount of support.
Initially I thought that this bra fit tight, but in retrospect I know that it's actually a proper fit. I almost forget I am wearing it throughout the day most days.
The one complaint I have is that the straps, since they're a slick material, like to work loose. This results in the straps falling off my shoulders sometimes, which can be awkward.
The material of this bra is pretty strange, but it feels good and the translucency of the upper cup is kind of sexy.
I really couldn't stand the shape that this bra gave me, though. I have soft, pendulous breasts with a pretty even shape and this bra didn't give much lift. There was pretty much a straight line from my collar bones to my nipples, which for my particular body shape just made my breasts look saggy and torpedo-like.
Someone who was a bit firmer and more self supported would probably fill out this bra really nicely without having the funny shape problems that I had.
For me, this bra fits well, gives a great round profile and supports well. However, the material is quite boring, but at the same time visibile through tight-fitting tops, which means that it's neither good-looking nor practical. The material is in two layers, probably fused together, however, the upper one has started to "move" and wrincle just a bit.
It as a sligtly lower center and is the closest to the Freya Polyanna I've found in 28GG.
1. Love the shape, it gives to my breastshttps://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> (a round shape). 2. Tight band (good). 3. I have to set up the bra straps to offten. 4. Love the bra in the fuchsia colourhttps://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> 5. The cups are almost like 30ff, much bigger then, for example, matilda or greta. 6. I like soft, fabric bras and I don't like very much the high wires on the front.
So close, but no cigar, sadly. This bra has an unusual but in my opinion very attractive design. I particularly like the high-rise outer edge of the cup that encapsulates my armpit breast tissue. The straps are placed too far apart for my sloped shoulders but that could be altered. The fabric of the band nor the cup are very stretchy, which in my case means that the band is uncomfortably tight. The cups are also too small, there is significant quadding going on. I could see how this design technically could fit me quite well, so I'm going to try a bigger band and a bigger cup.
This is definitely a more full on top with tall root type of bra, I got it in a 28FF and had issues with gaping and wrinkling on the upper half of the cup. It is really cute though and the fabric is a little scratchy.
I really liked my Freya bras in the past so I thought I would try them again in my correct size now. Against my better judgement knowing that they run big I got a 30H, which is the sister size of my calculator size (28HH). This bra is very very slightly too big in the cup. It is definitely far too wide in the cup, and only a teensy, almost unnoticeable amount too projected (or maybe just projected at a point that mismatches slightly with the peak of projection on my own breasts). I love the crisp, white look of the bra though. ...I think the exterior fabric is a bit rough, but the interior isn't scratchy or irritating to my sensitive skin. This is one of the only bras I've found with the 3-piece construction where the top strip isn't too tight on the top of my breasts and flattens them down. The gore is a little high for me, but not as stabby as my Cleo Maya, however, it's so wide on my close-set breasts that it folds over on top of itsself, so the wires overlap. Read more 90 more words
