I'm so excited to have my very first Freya!
This fit is pretty great for me overall. The straps are a bit far apart, so they slide off sometimes, but if I tighten them down a bit that helps. Occasionally the gore doesn't tack, but I think that's because the wires are softer than my 36FF - Panache » Envy Balconnet Bra (7285) . That's not necessarily a bad thing though. I like that extra bit of flex and they seem to conform to me better that way. Less digging in at the underarm, for sure.
I think this bra is a bit stretchier in general than ... the others I've gotten so far. We will have to see how it holds up over time. I did get it used, so I expect that it's had a bit of breaking in done already, which is kind of awesome, because now I don't have to wait that out. LOL.
As a general observation, I think balconettes are my style. Like THE style for me. Because there's less cup up top. I've heard they're good for FOT/tall roots for that reason (more free space), but I'm even with short roots and it kind of has the same effect? (less cup up top that I can't fill, lol) This isn't as "pointy" as some balconettes, so that's nice.
I'm also excited to finally add a padded bra to my collection! That combined with the pastel colors means it can go under my light blue uniform shirt. Sure, the seams show a tiny bit, but at least things stay put. This decreases the urgency of my hunt for a t-shirt bra, at least for now.
Also, this pattern is kind of obnoxiously cute.
