I’m trying out a new, shorter review format for bras where I don’t have enough data to write a full review. Today’s subjects are the Freya Gem balconette, the Cleo Marcie, and the Freya Lauren half cup.
Abstract: Three great bras that run quite small in the band and cup. I liked the shape, the designs, and the unexpectedly low price points. These bras were a unique and appealing change of pace compared to the other brands I’ve tried.
Abstract: This wasn’t the best match for my boobs, but it’s a pretty bra that gives a natural and rounded (not pointy!) shape. I have to admit, I don’t really understand why it costs as much as it does.
Abstract: This is a wireless bra that provides decent uplift, but gives a pointy shape. In addition, the cups are very wide and shallow, which squashes the boobs together instead of properly separating them.
Abstract: This is the standard — and disappointing — balconette bra that I’ve come to expect from Freya. Pointy shape, weird fit, silly sizing.
Abstract: This is another angry rant about Freya’s ridiculous sizing. It’s also a review of the Edina balcony bra, which, while gorgeous, gives torpedo-boob and runs extremely large in the band.
