Freya Ignite 28e

Color: yellow

About the bra:

This is a bra I got as a swap via braswap. I put the 28dd up for sale, but stated I really preferred an exchange for the same bra in a 28e. I didn’t think someone would have the 28e and need a 28dd, but I got lucky. This bra wasn’t new, but looks like it is.

Every time I’ve seen this bra on a website, I’ve always looked at it as being a yellow bra with black clusters on it.

 But in actuality, there are colors other than black

There are a few shades of pink, a blue, and a pale greenish blue color


There’s a black bow at the top of the gore.

There is also a black bow where the cup meets the straps.

The beautiful top portion


The straps

There is some sort of stitching detail throughout the bra.

I just want to mention, that while this bra is a bright yellow, my pictures make it look brighter than it actually is. The picture of the bow by the straps, is the most accurate in color, since I didn’t have the flash on. The fabric has four way stretch, but it’s not overly stretchy

The review:

I am so happy I was able to swap my too small 28DD, for the 28E. This bra fits perfectly. If my breasts grow, it will be too small. But that’s probably not going to be an issue because my breasts don’t change shape/size.

There’s not any space (woohoo!)

Color: black

About the bra:

This bra is completely sheer. It is also very sexy. I can’t even describe it, I have to just show pictures.

There’s a rather long bow at the gore.

The cup is completely sheer, there’s no double layer on the bottom part of the cups.

I really love that the pink on this bra is a very light pink.

The review:

This bra… It fits but it doesn’t. I’m not really sure, lol. When initially swooped and scooped, there was still a little bit of room on my smaller breast, where the upper sheer part was, but not on the entire part. But when I scooped in my ‘underarm fat’, it made the bra fit, but kind of cut the tissue in the middle of my chest.

When I lean over there’s gapping (I’m only mentioning this because it annoys me).

Side view

A few things about this bra. The band is tight! I’ve read that freya bands are loose-looser than Cleo’s, but this band is almost uncomfortable. And the gore is slightly irritating me. I think it’s because the band is too tight, and the gore is higher than what I’d like. Also, when I do the second S&S, it makes the sides of the cup higher than normal, so it’s slightly irritating.

When I first got on bratabase and asked for a fit check Arabella was one of the freya bras recommended for me, as well as Siren and Oh la la. I found this on eBay for a low price. So I’m glad I was able to get it.

About the bra: This is one of the bras I got from a member of A bra that fits, she purchased them for me from Debenhams. Every time I’ve seen this bra on a website, I’ve always looked at it as being a yellow bra with black clusters on it.

But in actuality, there are colors other than black.

There are a few shades of pink, a blue, and a pale greenish blue color

The review:

When I first saw this bra in person, I thought, ‘oh my goodness, this is so cute, I’m glad I ordered it’. And then I tried it on and realized the cups were too small, 😥 I think I have a fear of buying E cups, since my breasts aren’t particularly big. And given the fact that some of my 30DDs are too big, I always think that E cups will be too big. But with this bra, I definitely should have gotten a 28E. I did have both sizes in my cart initially, but I decided to go with the DD. It’s not grossly too small but I do quad in it. I am in the process of trading with an ‘a bra that fits’ member for the 28E.

An aerial view of the quadding. It even quads on my smaller breasts. So I know it’s too small.

Its so pointy from the side. Hopefully the 28E is less pointy.

View of the back. This is one of the few bras where I have a picture of the back. It’s so hard to take that pic by myself. I just wanted to show that I think the straps are adjusted too long, because the band looks so low on my back.

I can’t wait to get the 28E. I want to see hoe the fit of that differed from this. With this particular bra, I think the strap is very tight. I don’t know if it’s because the cups are too small or not. But if I were to keep this bra, I would definitely need to wear an extender with it.

Freya Pansy 28dd

I got a few bras from Debenhams, because a bratabase user was so kind to order them for me (the particular bras I wanted were on the original Debenhams site, but not the US version). This was my first time trying out Freya bras.

Color: Midnight

About the bra:

It has a beautiful floral design consisting of blacks, blues, white, purples and yellows.

The gore has a bow that is black and blue.

There is a cute little scalloped design on the black lace (which is stretchy).

The lace looks different on the pictures in the models.

There is a cute little decoration throughout the bottom of the bra

Where the strap meets the cup, there is also a black & blue bow.

The back of the bra straps is have black and half of the floral design.

But I feel like that makes the straps only partially adjustable.

The review:

I like this bra. It’s cute. I was kind of tight when I was wearing, so I’m probably going to use my bra extenders when I wear it again.

Okay from the side view. Pointier than what I would like, but I’ll live.

I think this bra wouldn’t work on someone that’s FOT. I have a little cutting of the tissue. The lace is stretchy though.

This is the main area that was hurting me when I was wearing the bra. The ‘pain’ started about two hours after I put the bra on. I was on my way to MD, so I had no choice but to continue wearing the bra.

When I took the bra off there were marks on my skin.

I did also notice that on my bigger breast the marks left by the wire were sitting on my breast tissue, not next to it. So I’m thinking I need to either attempt to stretch the wire, slightly, or get a 28E.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is what I wore over the bra. A cami from walmart (for only $1.68!), and a hello kitty tank also from walmart.

Because of how pointy the Freya bras are on me,  I’m hesitant to get more. I am going to attempt a Freya Arabella though.
