I'm active - kayaking, hiking, just started to jog/run again. I still have some bounce but compared to other sports bras I've tried this one has minimal bounce and is quite comfortable. Planning on buying more of this style and brand. Sarah from Atlanta

Seems like a well - made bra, but fit was inaccurate, tried using all fitting techniques but ended up with too small around and cups too large. Have decided to reorder but a different style and different size after going through fitting explanations again.

Freya Response: Julie, this sports bra is firmer in the band than our everyday styles to provide more structure during high-impact activities. This occasionally requires some compensation when choosing sizes. We’re confident that you’ll love your Freya sports bra in the proper size! Julie from Kamloops, BC Canada

I can jog comfortably in just this bra without feeling like I can't breath because my chest is so compressed (most other sports bras have this effect for me). I have had this bra for 3 years and it is still performing well and nearly as comfortable as my brand new one, despite hard wear at least once a week. EB from Pennsylvania

Not the most comfortable bra that I have purchased. I thought it was because it was new and needed breaking in but by the end of the work day I ready for it to come off.

Freya Response: Tonya, it may be that this bra needs to break in a little farther before it reaches its ideal fit. It wasn’t mentioned how long you had been wearing the bra – we find it usually takes 3 or 4 wears before any of our bras are most comfortable. This sports bra also features a firmer band and firmer straps, meaning the bra will fit and feel more snug in the areas. We hope you continue to try Freya and continue to wear your new sports bra, as it’s one of our favorites in our wardrobe. Thanks! Tonya from USA

It's my first time ordering a Freya anything, so while I have exchanged, I am waiting to give a better review. I wear 34JJ/K in Panache and I ordered the 36J based on the reviews. I found the back to be too large and the cup too small, but the smallness of the cup is probably because I'm closer to a K at the moment. my initial feelings are that this will be a good sports bra in the right size. but if you wear 34 in panache, I would recommend staying with that back size and your most realistic cup size. The shape is not the best but for a sports bra it's pretty good and i didn't feel smashed, just pointy.

Freya Response: Cassie, as Freya and Panache are both companies that utilize UK sizing, we recommend starting with the size you usually wear in one brand when ordering the other. Our cut-and-sewn sports bra does give a projected silhouette, however these seams provide the structure needed to offer maximum support during high-impact activities. We hope you enjoy the feel of this bra, as you noted that you didn’t feel “smashed”. We call this “encapsulation” fit - meaning the breast tissue is fully captured and supported by the bra - versus “compression” fit, where the bra compresses tightly against the body to reduce bounce. We think you will find the encapsulation fit healthier and more comfortable during your workouts. Thanks! Cassie from USA

I wrote a review of this about six weeks ago. I wanted to add that since then, I've lost some weight. The cups pucker--I've probably gone down an entire size. HOWEVER, the bra STILL works just as well. I have run up to eight miles in it with almost no bounce. I barely feel the bra--or my boobs!--whatsoever. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is starting a weight loss journey. I wasn't, but the fact that I don't feel immediately compelled to replace this bra (as I do my Freya decos...) is awesome. Breast sizes change so quickly when you lose weight and these bras are expensive--but you should know that once you buy this one, it'll last with you for a while. :) Rachel from Seattle

Based on the reviews this did not give me as much support as I expected. I will not be able to wear this for high activity sports such as running, or cardio classes.

Freya Response: Aly, we hope you will still find a place in your life for your Freya sports bra (we love ours!) and we’re happy to hear that you found it fit properly. We will be releasing a new underwire Freya sports bra in the near future with a seamless, breathable moulded cup that may suit your needs better than your current Freya sports bra. Thank you!

A really nice supportive bra that certainly does the job it's advertised to do. It is a lot of bra and not for the very slender built or a lady with a short-torso. A word of caution, which I did not take and wish I had, order this bra in your regular cup size but BE SURE to go up one size in the band. This is a must; otherwise, you will be uncomfortable at first, and your ribs will feel pressure. As good if not better than all my Wacoal bras. Comfortable straps that DO NOT dig, a substantial and sturdy bra. It's not exactly the workout bra of my dreams but I wholeheartedly recommend it, and I will definitely order again. I didn't give it a 5 because the band sizing should be made true to size as all other 34 bands are and fall in line with your measuring specifications. Her Room is such a great place to job with a huge selection in sizes and price points, and customer service is outstanding. Colleen from Tustin Ranch, CA

This was my first online $50+ bra purchase, and since then I've bought a swimsuit (also reviewed on here!) (Freya Pier Underwire Halter) and two Freya decos. I am so happy I bought this bra. I never considered doing any form of high-impact exercise before purchasing it, and now I've been running about 10-15 miles per week. It is the only bra to ever hold everything in place and after I run, I don't feel like I've added three years worth of sag to my breasts! My only issue (and this is my fault) is that I ordered the nude one, and it is pretty ugly. I would like to run without my shirt off at some point, but not in my ugly nude bra :(. Do note: it's tight! My swimsuit is a 30DD, and my Deco bras are 30E. I've worn a 28F before as well. As a 32DD, this bra is by far my "largest," and I do have to use the second hook. It is, however, my best fitting bra as well! Rachel from Seattle

I am pleased with the sports bra. I have been looking for the perfect bra to wear when exercising. Most of them failed. This is the perfect sports bra for me. It hold. really good and is not confining. The correct size is essential. I sometimes wear this bra as an everyday bra. it's that comfortable. Pat from Green

Love this bra for workouts and everyday casual wear. It's comfortable, the wires do not poke and the straps don't slide. I've been wearing this model for 3 years now. Cathy from Willimantic, CT

Good exercise bra. Band is snug so I do the fasten-in-the-front-and-twist-into-place to put it on. I have four others in the same style by Freya. Very little breast movement without feeling the girls are squished. KarenM from Phoenix, AZ

I liked this bra. it was fairly comfortable, and it definitely held everything in place. I think I may have gotten too small of a cup size. Because I am still growing, my size gets larger periodically. the fabric part in between of my breasts did not sit on my skin, so I guess I need a bigger cup size. The bra was great overall though!! Oh, and people don't like the seam that goes through the middle, but I wear shirts when I'm working out so it doesn't really matter. Nissa from USA

I think this is a great bra. It keeps everything in place and reasonably stable, although any bra has some bounce. It breathes well. It still feels somewhat tight on me after a few months of use, but it's certainly not uncomfortable. If you're worried about how a sports bra with underwire will feel, don't be! If you're big breasted, you'll probably be more comfortable in the end. I learned the importance of sports bras the hard way. When I think back on how many years I played soccer wearing what was little more than a piece of spandex, I can't help but cringe and wonder if I caused permanent damage! If you're reluctant to try something more supportive, don't be. You'll thank yourself later! Amelia from United States

I bought three bras of the same style 6 months ago, and wore them on rotation until the elasticity wore down to the last hook only now. These are the best bras I've ever owned, provide the support and fit that's so difficult to find, and are well worth the money. Stephanie from Mount Bethel, PA, United States

Love love love this bra! I'm 43 size 36D. This bra is true to its description: great support, no uni-boob, and keeps the 'girls' where they are supposed to be. I would recommend this bra to anyone! Only recommendation: if you are on the last hook in your current bra order the next size up. 5 stars!! Maggie from Marengo IL

Initially felt a little snug, but it stayed put nicely and didn't feel too tight during a run. Straps didn't slide, which was one thing I was particularly interested in. Alana from Dallas

I ordered the size that corresponded with my US size. The cup is too small though. Normally I would return it, but since I am just finishing up nursing I think I will go down enough to fit this perfectly. I would recommend going up at least 1 cup size. This seems to fit well otherwise. Not as full coverage as I prefer, but seems very comfortable and supportive for exercising. Not recommended for super vigorous activity (like plyometrics).

Freya Response: Thank you for your comments about your Freya Active bra! We are glad you will be able to utilize the cup size you ordered and will take your comments regarding sizing into consideration. Emily from USA

This is by far the best sports bra/everyday bra. Incredible support and really comfortable straps. This bra is a must for bigger chest size. Kyla from Vancouver BC Canada
