    Hasn't set fit

    The gore sits fairly high, and the cups are too projected for me. The band is quite firm.

    This bra is not owned any more

    Didn't fit

    Despite the fact that the cup fabric of this bra seems it a little stiff, it is quite comfortable and not at all irritating. This underwires on the Rio are noticeably longer than on my other bras, so I do notice a bit more rubbing (I wouldn't quite call it poking) under my arms. That said, the wire channel on this bra is almost a full inch longer than the wire itself, so it could be the empty part of the channel that is moving around a bit causing the slight irritation.

    While generally the 32 Freya bands are too lose on me, this one seems quite firm. I've only worn it a few times, but haven't noticed the band riding up too much.

    28H

    Fits

    I have been gradually working my way up in cup size, after realizing from viewing all the bra blogs out there, that my cup size was too small.

    I have been wearing a Freya Deco 28 GG, after going up from a 28 G...but with the 'scooping' technique, I was getting a 'quad boob' on my right boob which is a size bigger than the left one...so I knew the 28 GG cup increase was still too small https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />...and I was SO gutted to find Freya don't make any bigger cup size in this bra!! (why not Freya when you make ... your other 28 bras with bigger cup sizes and the Deco is so popular!?) It is the only bra that has given my soft tissue, bottom heavy boobs any 'up lift'!

    I had always found the Freya Deco strap a bit too stretchy (I measure 27" under my bust)...so after some research on Bratabase I worked out the 'Rio' in a 28 H might fit okay as the strap is quite tight for a 28" strap.............

    Well, the Rio's strap is tight! That is great for me as there's no slipping up my back...stays firmly in place, though the tightness would need some getting used to.

    The bra DOES fit...covers all my breast tissue after scooping...no quad boobs....BUT the result is a bra that fits but gives a horrible FLAT shape!! ...No nice rounded lifted shape under clothes, no cleavage...by the way this is the same problem I have found with the Bravissimo Satine bra (fits, but no nice shape..flat!) and Curvy Kate bras.

    I think I really have to stick with padded (probably push up) bras to gather all my soft tissue up...the fabric and shape of this bra does nothing for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Shame because it's easy to buy here in the UK and cheap around £20.

    The only thing for me now is to get going and order some Ewa Michalak bras, to hopefully get a good shape and the removable pads will sort out my two different sized boobs!..might take a while as it took a week for them to even reply to my email enquiry & I risk picking the wrong cup size first time (I'm thinking J,JJ..even K after looking at sizing on this site??)...I'll review the Ewa bra/s, hopefully soon https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    Fit is perfect, material is, although not soft or pretty for some (after a lifetime of nude granny panties it is very sexy for me), very durable. This bra will last and that is most important to me because I can not afford too many at these prices. I am 30G and this was my first large busted bra purchase, I'm a noob to big boob bras. No more granny panties for me! Yahoo and Hallelujah!

    I really like the design of this bra - the geometrical mesh and the metalic details.
    However, the band is really tight and the cups are way to big. So i only tried it on before returning for exchange. I ordered a band up and a cupsize down - so a 30F.
    From what i gather, the cupshape is good, but more "natural" ie not as rounded as Cleo Alexa. I'm worried that the top of cup might dig into the breast tissue, but we'll see.

    This bra is not owned any more

    I originally got this bra thinking something like waffle = fishnets... Well, the pattern is definitely strange in person and not like fishnets at all, haha. I personally found it to be ridiculously tight, probably the first bra I got scared I wouldn't be able to close at all - but other measurements for this size have the band a bit looser, so maybe it stretches out quickly?

    When I first put it on, it seemed to fit (although the bottom was wrinkly) but within seconds, there was quadboob, and oh it quadboobed HARD. Not sure if stretching it out will fix this but in general the top edge seems really tight, even for me. In general it seems typical of many Freya bras for me - wide straps, wide gore, meh shape, etc. The straps are fully adjustable though!

  7. NOT the same as the gem-- which I loved. The cups feel slightly smaller and the band feels slightly larger. Look forward to measuring + updating.

    Too much projection for me. Otherwise, feels great.

    After many years, I still love my Freya Rio(s). My first Rio was purchased in 2010; the first bra after discovering my "real" bra size. I loved it so much I bought another Rio in black about a year later. Both bands have held up. They are fairly stretchy. Fortunately, after a cold wash the elastic bounces back to nearly-new. My only complaint about the bra is the stupid metal decoration on the center gore. After about a year it rusted (cheap metal), causing an unslightly green mark on my nude bra. I ended up cutting off the metal decorations. The metal that holds the straps on does not appear to be rusting, but I still wish it weren't metal.

    I am a huge fan of Freya. This bra is certainly comfortable, but I can't say I love it. It is the least favourite of all the Freya bras I have owned and worn (the only exception being Freya's Deco bra, which I fall out of). I always think of it as mt granny bra.
