This is one of the few designs I've found that A: comes in my size at all, and B: Works with my short torso and highset breasts without feeling like it is trying to cut through my armpits. The bottom elastic on the band tends to roll inwards and pinch a bit through the day, but I think part of that is the fact that I need to wear my bands tight to account for where the band encircles my torso for my highset breasts. All in all, this is the best bra I have ever found for my large, high bust, and tiny torso. El from USA

I ordered this bra in both a 30E and a 32 DD. If they made 31 band width that is what I would need, but since they don't I wear either the 30 or the 32. I think the bands on this seemed a little wider than on a Panache brand I ordered. What I found is that this sling style cup does not hold me up as will as I like, so I will send both sizes back.

Freya Response: For great support & lift try a style with a four section cup & a side support for forward shape. New Hero UW Side Support Plunge Bra AA1841 offers just that – perfect fit & shape! Order the 30 band to get the snugness needed, but go up in the cup, 30F. LK from Tulsa

Be wary, because the lace will stand out when wearing silk/thinner fabric tops. But it's a great bra! I found it true to fit (I'm in between band sizes, so the 34 is too big, and the 32 just fits, and this was perfect - if you're not in between sizes though, I definitely recommend going down a band/cup size) Rita from New York, NY

This one is a little bit tighter in the band than other Freyas I own in the same size. I can't wear it all day because the hooks sometimes dig into my back when it is on the biggest size. I think it is because the fabric piece underneath the hooks is shorter than it used to be. But the cup is the same as other Freyas. landio from Berkeley, CA

This bra gives my breasts proper lift and support while not overwhelming me with too much fabric. Submitted from TheUndies.com

It's a great bra for lift and separation . The see through lace design makes it a little sexy. The only downfall is the seaming is thick so you can see it through a thinner or tighter shirt. Mary from Middle grove NY

I gave this 4 stars simply cause I love the quality. It is very well made. Many of you already know-----We have to try different sizes for different bras. Sadly, my girls were swimming in 32E in this bra. However, since I loved the high quality of this bra so much that I'm in the process of exchanging it for a 30DD. *cross my fingers* Kendra from Shoreview

Nice but really runs big in band so going down one band size is a good idea. Black is NOT BLACK, it's more dark grey really. Alina from Rusia

This is such a cute bra! It is a little large in the band but I was able to just hook it on the tightest hook. My only complaint is the double boob I get sometimes, but that is more due to my body and not the bra. J from WV, USA

Nude is very nude on my Caucasian skin, which is what I was hoping for for a bra to wear under spring and summer clothes. Comfortable. I do think it runs large in the band size and next time would go for a 30E. Hana

I was not happy with this bra at all!!! At first, I thought it was going to be alright and that I would be happy with it. By the end of the day I noticed that the top of my breast (only on one side) was coming out of top.... It also became extremely uncomfortable as if it were digging into my ribs just below my breasts. It also gave a shape to my breasts that I didn't even think was possible. It was as if the top of my breasts were flattened in a way (outside of the one part where it popped out - you now that bulge, most of us have seen it) But it also gave an appearance of torpedos shooting at the ground - maybe a point b7ut not really. I am tell you just odd. Amy from Indianapolis, IN

This bra was clearly well-constructed, and was lovely to look at. However , the fit was just very poor for me-- I felt like it left my breasts far too separated. It also made them into a sort of weird shape. Finally, it is very sheer in the nude color, so beware! L from Ohio, USA

I usually wear a 38E in Freya, but I followed the tip to size down on the band and up in the cup. I wish I hadn't. The band was far too tight. I really liked the style/shape of the bra and found the fabric to be very comfortable (which is difficult for me as I have sensitive skin), but unfortunately, the correct size has sold out in the sale-priced colors. For those who are trying to choose between the balcony and the demi-cup - I tried both, and found that the demi-cup gave me a more retro, pointed shape, while this bra gave a more modern, rounder shape.

The item was too small.. The cup size was not what we thought it should be. It was smaller than what I wear and I am a 36 B. However, the service was outstanding. We will re-order. Annette from Hampton, VA

This bra was just ok. I ordered the Lois style and preferred it over the Gem style. Lois style seemed to have better support. Kari from Knoxville, TN

New favorite bra! It's pretty, comfortable, supportive, and doesn't poke out the neckline of my shirts like some of my other bras with similar support. Nora from MA

I love this! It is extremely light-weight, comfortable, holds everything in place, and I have already reordered more. The underwires hit at the right spot, which seems more and more like a miracle. Finally, the silhouette is very flattering. Alice from OH

item fits larger than I expected, I could have sized down to a 30 band (32) and a smaller cup size (E) item is way too big I have to stuff this to get a good fit. bra fitted from Jamaica

The fabric is very scratchy and uncomfortable. I returned this bra. It does give good lift and support. Shape is mostly round. I was really hoping this would work for me. I am exchanging it for the Fantasie 4520 in 34G.

Freya Response: Christine, we’re sorry that the fabrication of “Gem” was irritating to you. Often times, bras soften significantly when soaked a few times in lingerie detergent and lukewarm water. Hopefully you will enjoy the Seamless Molded Balcony Bra FL4520 from Fantasie – it’s one of our best balcony bras! Christine from Angola, In.
