This bra fits! It was a bit of a surprise, to be honest, because I haven't had a lot of luck with soft cup bras. I don't get any wrinkling or quadding! Yay! The cups are very projected and very closed at the top. I would probably get quadding if my breasts had more even fullness, but luckily it works well with my FOB breasts. I get a nice rounded shape from the bra, not at all pointy. My only criticism with the fit is that it really pulls my breasts away from each other, and it doesn't give a lot of lift. Still, the bra is very ...comfortable and I feel well supported.
The construction of the bra wasn't quite as good as most Freya bras. The cup is made of two layers - a satiny fabric and a layer of soft mesh. The satin fabric is sewn in two parts, and the mesh layers has three parts. The two layers aren't sewn together, except at the edges. Because of that I got some weird bunching of the mesh the first time I put it on. The elastic around the armpits doesn't sit flat against my body - it almost looks like ruffles. It doesn't show through clothing, fortunately, but it is still odd. I found the band pretty true to size.

Ugh, not a good Freya style for me, and uncomfortable to wear. This bra has a lot of room in the sides of the cup below the strap, but I need room in the middle/ at the gore for my centre fullness. This bra cuts in at the middle, and the cups seem to splay my breasts. Also, the outer knit material feels soft and smooth, but the cup lining and band trim are a scratchy mesh which makes this bra feel uncomfortable to wear.
First of all this bra is VERY comfortable with higher side wings than the typical Freya. I ordered this bra in my usual 32FF instead of sizing down to 32F like I usually need to for Freya bras. This full coverage bra had a few wrinkles at the bottom of the cups (I was told that means it doesn't project enough at the wire for me?) and VERY minor wrinkles at the top (might be perfect for someone with Even or slightly FoT). Other than that, the gore sits flat, straps are not so wide they slide down my sloped shoulders, wires and side wings are wide and high enough to enclose my side boob. Pity I didn't try this on in 32F - I have a feeling it would fit quite well.
