This bra is definitely a very pretty one. Pictures of it on the internet don't do it any justice. I'm not really a butterfly person, but the butterfly wing pattern looks very good on the sheer purple mesh of this bra. The iridescent pale purple stitching is also a definite plus, and the bra's edging and embroidery is unique and geometric, unlike anything I've seen before.
This was the first bra I bought when my size shifted from 32G to 30GG, and though Freya's bands tend to be stretchy, this 30 feels true to size. The breaking-in period took a good while, which discouraged me from wearing the bra ...very often, but now that it's stretched to me a bit it feels great. The padding on the underwires is comfortable, and the fabric used on the bra's fastener was a wonderful choice. My sensitive skin appreciates it.
The straps are a bit wide set, but are still manageable, even on my small frame. I've been told I have broad shoulders, though, so maybe that should be taken with a grain of salt. In fact, the bra seems a bit wide in general. With a shirt on, it makes my breasts appear further apart than usual, which is a bit strange. This may make it a good fit for far-set breasts.
This bra is definitely not full coverage on me, which my youthful self appreciates to no end. I think it is the closest thing to a demi-cup bra I have. (Envision the level of coverage that the stock photos of the Claudette Dessous Mesh Underwire Bra (CD2000) have in the smaller cup sizes.) Its construction gives some low-key, non-pushed-together cleavage-esque lift, another thing I missed out on thanks to my early development. It gives a very rounded look from the front. Its one failing is that it is slightly afflicted with pointiness, especially from the side view. Read more 208 more words
Shape is not quite as round as my benchmark, Cleo Lucy (5851). But it has a continuous band, so it rates further wear. The construction is quite nice. I love the straps; they are nice and thick. Although the straps being fully adjustable doesn't do anything for me, it may for other ladies. They are fabric covered most of their length, and the remainder of the straps is nicely textured. All of the seams are backed with purple. Assuming nothing goes wrong when I put it to use, I think I may have a keeper here.
Update: as many other people have noted, the band has stretched to Hades & back, and I'm using the 3rd set of hooks, despite gaining weight since I bought it. Cups fit well enough, so I may shorten the band. Freya, y u make such stretchy bandz?!?!
A very pretty bra and a pretty good fit for me too. I can easily forget I'm wearing it. The band was not too tight initially, and it does not seem to have stretched out much yet either. I would like it even better if the wires were slightly longer - maybe an extra 1/2 inch - on the sides.
I like this bra a lot. Good structure and shaping for my very soft breasts. The entire cup is made of the same strength mesh, which helps prevent in-cup quading with my very soft tissue. To me,these Freya mesh bands feel truer to size and stay firmer over time than the "silky" fabric ones and I prefer them.
This butterfly print is cool and the embroidery has a very geometric feel to it. I wear this bra a lot.
This is a very sexy bra. It is purple with butterfly's in yellow, blue and green. It is the same shape as the Arabella line, sheer three part cup construction. It is more open on the top though, because it only has geometric embroidery, not ribbon of Arabella.
The wires are too wide for my body, and thus my boobs look like elf shoes!
The straps are fully adjustable, but the pattern does start half way, so I suspect they are not meant to be fully adjustable...
Well, the band is too loose. This is brand new and I already have to hook the innermost hook to make it stay. The cups are wrinkling at the top, but the wire itself seems to be a good fit; I think the cups are just too deep for my soft boobs. They aren't supported properly and they're falling down a bit to create an unfortunate pointy shape. Also, the wire doesn't extend fully to the end of the cup...
This bra is very pretty, though obviously very sheer. It didn't give me the best shape (uplift/support). Also, the wires are too wide for me, so the cups had empty space at the sides. The gore is pretty high, so it rubs on the breast tissue in the middle. Otherwise, this bra seemed comfortable.
