This bra is just overall too big. The band is too loose and the cups are slightly too big. It's comically large on my smaller breast. It also just wasn't terribly comfortable on my sternum. I think the wires bend strange, as you can see they seem to lift away from my body in the middle of the underwire. Not quite sure why.
I had been coveting this bra for a while and found it on sale. This was the first time I tried Freya (along with the Ellie) and ordered my normal 38h. The band is a bit stretchy, but I doubt I could comfortably go down a size (i did end up exchanging the Ellie for a 36 though). The cups fit... ok. While I didn't have any major signs of quad-boob or wrinkling, I just think my boobs aren't the right shape for this bra. I don't know enough about the brand to know how the bras generally fit, but I know I get a great fit with ...Elomi and Curvy Kate. In addition, the center gore didn't lie flat. It was against my chest all right, but one side of the wire was sort of twisted. The shape and support seemed pretty good considering I didn't get a great fit.
I'm keeping this bra mostly because I love the pattern. As long as it doesn't stretch too much with wear, I think I'll be fine. It's the sort of bra I might wear in the winter under a sweater, so I know I have something cute on underneath, but that I don't need to worry about perfect shape or fit as with something clingy.

I like this bra even though the wires are a little too wide. The cups wrinkle a bit if I don't have my shoulders back but I have very soft tissue so not a surprise. The straps are also a little funky: went to tighten them and got only to about where I needed and I realized that's as short as they go.
Also makes you quite pointy (I'd say especially if you are a soft tissue with projection) but I sort of prefer that to the super rounded look...since that just makes me look super round all over.
Band and material seem comfortable and the band is actually a little snugger than I would expect from a Freya but it's pretty true-to-size.
It's a pretty comfortable and breathable bra, it's just to small for me. The fabric feels nice against skin and is great for wearing on hot summer days. Even though it has embroidery it works decently under tighter shirts in darker colors (under white the colors would probably stand out. The pattern is not really my style.
So indescribably cute. Fits a bit like Freya Faye, so is sadly incompatible for me. I wanted to love it, because I love the zig zag pattern, but I fit way better in the sheer cup Freyas and the old Jolie shape.
I don't like the shape this bra gives me -- I think it is for someone with narrower and more projected breasts. I am a little full-on-top, and I have a wide root, so this slightly cuts into my breast tissue.
The cups are too big for me (I'm typically a 30G), but I can make do with tightening the straps. I'm not going to comment on the technical aspects of the fit because I don't have the right size. The bra is super comfortable though- it's my go to period bra for when my boobs are swelling and I just want to be comfy. The straps do rub my armpits slightly but not as much as my Cleo Lucy.
Gives a nice lift and shape, but a touch too small in the cup, unusual for this size for me. It's a near-miss; I keep wanting it to fit and thinking maybe it fits and then I readjust and it doesn't. I love the top embroidery, which looks like twisted DNA strands. Gore seemed a touch too high after a day's wear; unusual, though, as it's not higher than other bras I find comfortable; maybe the too-small cup exacerbated any issue. Also I'm wavering between trying to find this in a G or going up to a 36 band; have only worn this outside the house once, and it was comfortable in the beginning of the day and miserable by the end.
The details and colors are super cute, and it's a nice every-day bra. the embroidery shows a bit under thin Tshirts, but it isn't too bad. Fit-wise, I'd say it's alright, the cups might be a bit too wide and a bit too small for my shape, but nothing I'd throw a fit over by a long shot.
