To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered a UK 40F / US 40 G. The fit was nice and the bra looked good. Things fell apart when I tried the bounce test. I stood in front of the mirror and did some jumping jacks. There was barely any support -- I bounced almost as much with no bra on as with this one on, and at my size, that hurts.
There was also showthrough since there's only one layer of fabric. I'll be sticking with Panache for my sports bras.
First Freya sports bra I've tried and disappointed to say that it just didn't work for me. Freya is my go-to brand for regular bras. The quality of this sports bra was good, as is typical of Freya quality, but the fit for my chest just wasn't right and very uncomfortable. I tried in both my regular cup size and the next one up. I would say that if you are large busted, and are most comfortable in a demi-cup or balconette style in regular bras, you will probably find this sports bra uncomfortable for how your breast mass is distributed on your body. There is also a seam where the front of the strap meets the cup that felt to me like it would rub and irritate the skin over the course a full exercise session.
I'm a 34 G and this bra does a good job of keeping things in place, but it kind of smooshes my boobs down and I don't reall like the shape it gives me. The band and straps feel very stiff and I'm worried they will dig into my skin while working out. Still deciding whether I will keep or return. A better bet is the Panache underwire sports bra, for shape and comfort.
This is my favorite sports bra. It's hard to find a molded sports bra with narrow wires and a small band (Freya is always my go to for bras). That being said, I'm knocking off one star because I'd really love to see a sports bra that is A) Molded and B) not a spacer bra. I don't really need my boobs shoved apart or pushed together. Would prefer just a normal sports bra.
Other than that, Perfect staying power and comfort.
