Freya » Deco Moulded Half Cup Bra (4232) » 30DD 30:5
Too shallow, will resell
Perfect fit? This bra feels so comfortable like it was made for me. Just curious if anyone picked up fit issues I didn't. It is on the tighest hook but I can sew in the band a tad so I can wear it on the loosest hook and get more use out of it. The back doesn't ride up which surprised me. Should I get more Freya halfcups?

You're more projected that this bra allows for which is why you get the slight gaping at the top, your boobs are pushing it away. I don't understand the measurement system on here so can't comment on where to go in bratabase terms but you probably need a cup size larger, and something with a deeper cup. Wires look roughly the right width but hard to tell with moulded bras, if they were longer you'd get less armpit chub (I have the same problem ). You look like you probably have tall roots so half cups that aren't so shallow (eg Freya Starlet unlined half cup) may suit, or try bras suitable for more projected FOT shapes like Cleo Marcie (it will be narrower and much more projected so beware!). Deco plunge might even suit better, not too projected, FOT, slightly narrower wires, Deco half cup really is wide and shallow.

If you like this style, definitely try other Freya half cups. Unfortunately this bra is the only moulded half cup style that I know of but there are many padded seamed half cup styles that might work.

In my experience, (and looking at the measurements), the Freya Deco band is tighter than other Freya bands (e.g. Freya Patsy). So, you might want to consider trying the 28" band size. But, look at reviews/ measurements.
I searched for Freya Padded Half Cups in 30DD, but you might want to sister size down in the band:
I think the only other Moulded Half Cup is the Freya Deco Honey.
Note: I wear 32GG/ 34 G in Freya. Shape: narrow, pendulous, projected, close set (when supported), center fullness... My problem with Freya HC are (1) Gores don't quite tack at the top b/c I'm close set, (2) Cups are too shallow & I'm projected. (3) Wires are wide/ I'm narrow. So, if yours are shallow & wide, then it might work for you. The gore isn't too high, so it might still be okay even if you have close boobs.

I thought in picture 2, it was the bratabase watermark underneath my armpit. Nope, I think that is my breast coming out at the sides. sigh. When I first try on bras, I miss so many key things!! Doh! I am used to being in 34a/b bras so a really loose band and tight cups feels right. For some reason I wasn't quadboobing, but just smooshing my boobs back into my armpit. My boobs are all along the sides of the cup. I guess I have soft tissue? Obviously I am lost here. I think it is the angle of the gore or low height of it that is making it feel comfortable too. I really like the band too so maybe that is what made it feel right. I may still look into Freyas? Any input is good. Thank you!
