This is my first purchase in the quest for properly fitting bras. I have been scouring the Internet and learning about breast shapes and proper fit. I believe I am (after two babies...) full on bottom, pendulous even, center full, somewhat close set, with narrow and short roots and soft tissue. This bra almost fits, but I think a 28E would be better. I have heard that Freya bands can run a little bigger compared to other bands, and I definitely think that's the case with this bra. I tried on another brand at the same time I bought this one (didn't fit at all, didn't buy) and ... this band was looser than the other one. I have to wear it on the middle hook to get decent support, and the tightest would be better but I don't want to wear out the elastic too fast. The upper edge of the cup is not quite laying flat, because I am quite full on bottom and shallow on top. Wearing the band on the tightest hook also helps the lace lay flatter, further leading me to believe the 28E would be better. But hey, for as cheap as I found it, it's a million times better than what I've been wearing. The wire is probably a little wider than I need, but it doesn't seem to create any other fit issues and is perfectly comfortable. The gore is pretty tall, but I'm so happy it lays flat! I've never had a bra that did that before! The very top of the wires in the gore is on breast tissue just a little because I'm fairly close set. It does not cut or feel uncomfortable at all, however. Overall, a nice bra; for me a sister size and a little more closed top would be even better, but it's totally wearable. Any suggestions for other bras to try based on how this fits would be much appreciated.

This is a beautiful bra and the first time an unlined one almost fit me! I think the cupsize is a bit small (quadboob at the top on the bigger side and breast tissue at the side). The band is also quite stretchy, I can already do it on the last hooks. Planning to try a band size down and a cup size up. At the moment the underwire digs in at the side but I'm hoping that's due to the incorrect cup size.
For reference I am quite shallow with tall roots, so this open cup is a good fit.

I actually really like this bra and wish I had been able to find it closer to my own size. I was onlly able to find 30 bands when I shopped for this bra- it 30E or DD. Without an extender, I spilled out of the both; with an extender, the DD was a much better fit. As with most of my bras, the gore is uncomfortable by the end of the day. It gives a nice silhouette and is super cool- as in temperature- to wear. It is a nice addition to my summer bra options.

I am usually a 28e who often gets 30dd because...scarcity. The band was expectedly loose, but the cups were surprisingly small and shallow. The gore was very nice and narrow I'd love to try this in a 28f

This bra was unfortunately too small for my larger left breast, I had quadboob even before swoop and scoop. It fit my right breast almost perfectly, though, which has led me to realize that I actually do have a cup size difference between them. It was really pretty, but I felt the pattern didn't really suit me; I thought the more classic look of Fantasie Allegra suited me better. Also, the design would almost certainly show through a thin shirt. The peppermint color is more blue than green in person, but I liked it better that way. It was more like a very soft, light turquoise.
