When I first saw the Vixen, I loved its look and immediately thought (or wished?) it could be a perfect fit for me. And it is! Thanks to annabellynn who made this possible via exchanges. It seems like Freya designs some of their plunges specifically for my shape with narrow & deep features. The fit is similar to Arabella or Oh la la. I read comments and reviews which were mentioning the cups being too closed on top, but this doesn't interfere with the fit on me, despite my tall roots. When wearing it I feel as if I weren't wearing a bra at all, but my breasts are simply lifted by a magic force! So it must be magic. And it seems the force is with me, too.
Freya. Whyyyyyyyyyy. Why do you do this to us? I am heartbroken about this bra because I LOVE the aesthetics of it but it fits so horribly that it is unflattering and I'll have to return it.
The transparent mesh is comfortable and sexy. The houndstooth is based on a cream color, not a pure white, which adds sophistication. The upper cup portion has rainbow metalic thread woven into the houndstooth detail that glitters gold, teal, and magenta. Houndstooth. Houndstooth. Houndstooth. Sparkle. Houndstooth. Styled bows. :obs quietly::
The wires are nice and narrow. That is a about all there is to say in favor of the ...way this bra is sized. The sides are a little too low-coverage for my prefernce as is typical of Freya plunges but I would have forgiven that.
What really breaks this bra is the cup depth and how closed on top the cups are. With a 7.75" cup depth, I would say this 28D bra might fit someone who measures 28DD or 28E, assuming they could deal with the narrow wires and closed-on-top shape. I get a little bit of digging in / quadboob at the top immediately after putting the bra on but it does settle down quickly so you can't see it in the photos.
I might write a letter to Freya. I want 28D and similar sizes to remain available but I'm worried that they'll see low sales numbers and discontinue those sizes. If they could do the scaling/cut a bit differently, I'll bet a whole bunch of us would run out right now and buy this bra. Read more 161 more words
This bra is gorgeous and unique! I love the houndstooth details and metallic stitching on the cups. It's bright and fun without being over the top. Unfortunately I found 30E Vixen to run large in the cup - 9.5" deep with a typical loose Freya band. The top of the cup still lays pretty flat on me, it just seems to want more apex projection and overall fullness than I have maybe. So it might not be great for Full on top. I would love to try this bra in 28E or 30DD.
I've been obsessed Freya bras lately. So many unique patterns, colors, and styles like this one! Got my eye on the Zentangle now. I fit pretty well into the Ooh La La plunge so I think there is still hope despite this Vixen not working.
