This is a really great strapless bra. The hand-shaped underwires provide incredible support. It's also very pretty https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
For a while, I thought I was a 30G because the Freya Lacey seemed to fit perfectly in a 30G, but after nearly every other 30G bra I bought was too small, I realized that I am actually a 30HH/J. Because of this "true size" confusion, I used to think that this bra ran small, but now I realize that it is probably true to size.
The band is on the tight side, so if you are a GG cup and sized out of this bra's size range, you can probably size up in the band to the sister size of your normal size.
Like many women with large breasts and/or a small ribcage, I've struggled all my life to find a strapless bra that stayed up and supported by boobs instead of slipping down my torso.
When I wear this bra, I find that I'm always in a state of half inhalation in my breathing cycle. I keep my diaphragm expanded slightly in order to keep the bra from slipping down. This results in very short breaths as well as sore and tense middle back muscles.
The bra gapes from my chest wall a good amount that I can peek through and see my toes. The cups don't fit either, they're a bit small. I'm thinking of taking it to get the band altered.
SUCCESS! I previously ordered this on a 34FF because of other reviews that said the band ran tight. However, I find it true to size, maybe even a little stretchy. (As of this morning, when I bought the 32G, both the bra and I measure exactly 32".)
All the same comments about look and construction from my 34FF review apply. (See http://www.bratabase.com/bra/dllii/) It still cuts a bit at the armpits (more a cosmetic issue than a comfort one), and I have a sneaking suspicion the band will stretch out quickly. Otherwise, I'm calling this a fit! Narrow girls, fear not!
Now if only Wonderbra wouldn't make it so hard to buy for US customers. I swear, I feel like a smuggler.
The shape, as most of the strapless is not working on me. It feels quite bulky when wearing, and don't feel supported. The underwires are at an odd place, might have to try a size down to see if it makes any difference, but as for the Freya strapless (which I tried in 30G, 28G, and 30FF) I think it is just not for my shape.
