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 is very comfortable! Looks very cute and gives a great perky shape that makes me look thinner! Size is perfect. Maria from New York

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.

This is a beautiful bra and does what a bra is supposed to do (support the girls) and does so with grace and beauty. I'm not sure if this bra is really a bra or lingerie posing as a bra? It's simply lovely and the most comfortable sexy bra I've ever had. Joy from Nashville

I'm not giving any "star rating", purposely. This is one of three I ordered all are going back because of size.) My calculated size is 36 (D6). Notes for this bra advise going down one band and up one cup. Ordered 34 GG. Cup was way too small, but more importantly, had no side support; fabric not strong enough on sides. For that sole reason I am not going to try to find a cup that fits for this style.

Freya Response: Patty, the Freya “Gem” style you tried is constructed with a softer fabric that clearly is not providing the structured support that you’re looking for. If you’re looking for balcony styles, you will most likely be better suited in our sister brand Fantasie – specifically styles Elodie Underwire With Side Support Bra FL2182 or Helena Balcony Bra FL7710. These bras offer a firmer fabrication that you will give stronger lift and support from the sides of the cup that we think you’ll be happy with. Thanks for trying Freya!

This is one of the best bras I have. It is comfortable and supportive plus attractive. It is my favorite every day bra as I can wear it all day and not be waiting until I can take it off. I like it so much that I have it in several colors. Kathleen from Seattle

This bra is very comfortable and holds me in very well. It's my go to bra. My boyfriend thinks its sexy I bought it in the pink. My size doesn't usually come in pretty colors so this bra is great. Louisa

This bra is very pretty and feminine looking, something I really appreciate in a bigger sized bra. However, it gives me the weirdest shape and profile I've ever had with a bra. The fit seems perfect, I wear it comfortably on the middle hooks, but it pulls the girls inward toward the center. When I look down, it looks like someone has their hands on the sides pushing them together and pointing torpedoes straight outward. They are separated though. It's just strange. I definitely would not buy this bra again.

Freya Response: Kelly, this bra is designed with an additional vertical seam near the outer edge of the cups that we call a “side sling”. This is designed to provide additional support from the sides which helps to prevent your bust from extending beyond the silhouette of your torso, making you appear more slender. For a bra with less projection we recommend trying the other style in the “Gem” range, demi cup Gem Underwire Demi Cup Bra AA1363. Thanks for wearing Freya! Kelly from Westfield, IN
