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.
