I ordered one in beige/nude, and two others in white. The most supportive bras I have ever owned. I prefer my bras to be on the tighter side, as I have large breasts and need firm control. Upon arrival of one beige and one white bra in the mail, I could barely close the clasps and my breasts were very well supported with the 4 hooks and firm band. The second shipment included another white bra with a differently colored label, although it has the same material, stitching, and style: this bra arrived with more “give” to it and I was able to put it on the second or third row of hooks immediately, which was both baffling and disappointing. [I’m sure if I had requested an exchange or made a complaint it would have been dealt with promptly, as the customer service department was great at adjusting my initial order.] I have hand-washed them all for several weeks and hung them to air dry, and last wash placed them in a delicates bag on the knits cycle to wash with Woolite. Thus far, they have been holding up nicely and are still quite supportive. However, I am already able to fit them on the second row of hooks after only a month and am not an active person - this is why they received 4 stars instead of 5. Sometimes they’re a bit itchy, but I have very sensitive skin and that may simply be me. Nevertheless, this isn’t a bra you could find in a department store, and is well worth the money I spent. Because of my majorly positive experience, I will be ordering my bras from this site regularly. Stephanie from Mount Bethel/PA/United States

My favorite line for sports bras. It is comfortable, holds you in, and they come with more stylish detail than just white or nude. Elizabeth from Californita

One of the few bras actually made to support "real" ones. Sure wish manufacturers would make something other than sports bras sturdy enough to truly be called support bras. Nancy from Georgia

Fits well around band and cup size is good, but is cut high underarm, so rubs when I move my arms suzsan from Houston, TX

I'm not crazy about the seam placement across the cup, but the bra has good support and I decided to keep it. Maybe I just prefer seamless cups.

Freya Response: We know the horizontal seam will give you the best support and shaping while active, especially during high impact workouts. Try layering over the bra to minimize the appearance of the seam. We’re so glad you like it! Susan from Rhode Island

Good service and the bra fits perfectly. This is the second one I've had and the first one lasted nearly 3 years. It was washed in a lingerie bag in the machine in cold water. Well made and comfortable. Joan

Bra fits true to size. Gives a very nice profile. Fits and looks like an every-day bra but the"gals" stay put when you're moving and jumping. I bought the same size as my every-day bra and actually, could put it on the middle hooks, but was always taught to start on the last hooks so that when the bra is worn-in, you have room to tighten. I prefer the shaped band below the cups. A nice feature. I am considering purchasing other Freya bras because of the nice profile. Zumba Gal from Brooklyn, NY

I need a larger cup size in the style than recommended by the universal sizing chart. It's does not offer extreme support...there is more movement when jumping/jogging than I would like. The comfort is OK for an underwire, and the fabric is very nice and soft. It's best for low-impact aerobic activity. The construction in front and next to the rib cage is too beefy for comfortable yoga positioning when the torso is curling inward.

Freya Response: Even the best bra in the world can’t do the job it’s designed to do if it’s in an incorrect size. If the cups are too small, the bra won’t be able to perform the way it should. The correct size is absolutely crucial in a sports bra since the expected performance level in a sports bra is even higher than in other bras. It seems you’re not experiencing the “extreme” support this bra can offer: You could go up in the cup in this style to a 38D8, or you might want to try our active bra in our sister brand Elomi, Energise Underwire Sports Bra EL8040. This style has a unique construction where the upper cup contains the top of the breast tissue for even more motion control and stability. This ultra-supportive bra is offered to a J-cup. I’m sure you’ll find the perfect fit for you. aryan from texas

In the past, I have had to wear 2 bras in order to run. This Freya sports bra gives me the support that I need. My breast are not smashed into my chest. It lifts and supports. I give this bra a big thumbs up. Vicki P. from GA

I have been looking for a bra to fit my odd sized breasts, I recently went to a store and was fitted, the Freya 4002 was the best fit. Since it is a long way for me to travel to the store, I found them on your site., happy to know I will be able to order again when I need to. I not only wear this bra for Yoga but every day.

I have this in black and nude. The black fits ok, a little tight after washing. The tan is WAY too tight. I don't dry it and then stretch it, hooked, around a chair, and it's still too tight. The material is so tough/rigid that, with either one, if I run for more than 30 minutes, I get a painful horizontal line from chafing under my bra.

Freya Response: This is the first time we’ve heard this type of feedback about this style. Are you certain you received the same size in both items? It’s not unusual to have a slight variance in fit in different colors, but the size difference you describe is too much. The fabrication in our Active bras is non-stretch to minimize all bounce and protect the ligaments and breast tissue while you exercise. The bra should support, not chafe. I find that rinsing my sports bras in fabric softener helps to make the material pliable, and more comfy. Thanks so much for taking the time to contact us, we’ll be sure to pass your comments on to our design team. Megan from Boston MA

This is a true high impact sports bra for a large bust. All tissue is encapsulated, held in place, and moved forward - very important for activities such as rowing. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I hardly move at all when wearing this bra, and the underwires aren't TOO tight like some of the others I've tried. I can feel comfortable in this bra for hours upon hours at a time, yet be really well-supported! Submitted from TheUndies.com
