Best sports bra I've worn to date (holding out on the five stars for that mythical "perfect bra") ... I have two others of this style, and I wear them several times a week. They are more supportive than any other sports bra I've found, and comfortable enough to wear all day (no excessive binding). GT

AMAZING!!! It's a perfect fit, plus it allows me to run with out bouncing or having to hold myself. It's fits like a real bra (easy on and off) with super support. It minimizes you, but doesn't make you feel squished, and you don't feel the weight of your chest while working out. The fabric breathes well and dries quickly! I love it!! Jodie from New York, NY

This is a fantastic sports bra. No bouncing, very firm support, and I actually still have a figure while working out! It does really lift, so it's a big change from other sports bras, but I love it! Jessica from United States

A favorite! One of the only bras I have tried that lay flat on my chest between the cups. I have one for everyday wear, & another that I use as a sports Bra. Lisa K. from New Y, NY USA

The Freya 4002 is a close second to the Elomi sports bra, but definitely not as comfortable, fabric is not as nice, "bounce reduction" is not as good.... But a good 2nd choice to the Elomi sports bra which does not come in a 32 DD. ks from Reston, VA

It was a tad too small-i had my boobs bulging out the top,but I am having sizing issues with everything right now because of my constant weight loss. I loved everything about this bra! Soo extremely supportive and it was comfortable. It gave a ever so slight pointiness,hardly noticeable;its not at all like playtex ;p I exchanged for a cup size bigger ...which I'm waiting for to come in mail.. I bought 2 Kelly from St louis mo

I LOVE this bra!!! I haven't been able to run comfortably since I was 13. So half my life I felt pain if I tried to run, which is terrible since I want to get fit and know that running is a great way to do it (especially if you have dogs like me). Once I tried this bra on and attempted to run, I was in love. Even with big girls like me, there is zero pain. Less bounce than in the video. I cannot say enough. I LOVE THIS BRA!!! Already I've gone down two cup sizes thanks to being able to run again! Rachel from Provo, UT

Having a large chest makes it difficult to find a regular bra that fits well, much less a sports bra. I was very pleasantly surprised - this sports bra not only fit well, it prevented almost all bouncing, enabling me to get a great workout without being uncomfortable or worrying about how I would look. I teach exercise classes, so this is very important. I will definitely order more. Anne from California

I now have six of these between 30E and 28F, as I am between band sizes. I have figured out how to deal with the pointiness as much as possible, so I thought I would share it with you all. 1. Wash your bra in warm water. You can either stick it in the machine in a bra bag, or just let it soak in a bucket of warm water. The warmer water helps soften the material much faster. 2. Let the bra hang dry. 3. When it's just *almost* dry, wear it around the house on a snug setting. It will dry very quickly with your body heat while you're wearing it and help speed up the molding process. After doing this once or twice, the bra should more or less conform to your shape. It will always be slightly pointy, but not enough to really matter. The seam will flatten a bit, too, but never really go away. Don't get scared when you try this bra on the first time. It looks really terrible right out of the package, but it won't look like that after round or two of wash and wear. HappyGirl from California

I bought this looking for a good under wire support sports bra in a natural color. I will be heading out for military basic training in just over a month and I need something like this. I have a very small and round rib cage and wide, but slightly flatter cup. I bought a 30E and a 30F, just in case. I appear to be between these two sizes. The F cup was wider, and slightly more comfortable, especially on the elastic that comes on top of the breast. I have both pec muscle and breast tissue there so I like to not have anything pushing down on or cutting into it. However, it was a little pointier on me. I like that it had four hooks in the back, though. The 30E was tighter and so not as pointy. It's a little less comfortable due to said elastic on top of the breast, but I expect to lose a little weight soon due to training so I thought the larger size would be too loose in a couple of months. The band and wire cup size fit great on both sizes. I jumped around a bit and wore it for the day. It seems to fit well and keeps me from bouncing, although I have yet to take it for a run. The under wire design is good for everything but grappling, so I'm overall pretty happy with it. I wish the material was a little less scratchy and the straps were crossed. Pros: Generously wide under wire. Nice comfortable straps. Nude/plain colors available. No uniboob. Very supportive. Comes in small band/large cup sizes! Cons: Leotard back (sports bras are infinitely more functional in a cross back design). Cup is slightly pointy. Seam shows through clothing. Expensive for people who work out often enough to need many bras. Material is slightly scratchy. To Freya Designers: Get smart about the cross strap design. This allows a bra to move with you, be comfortable across your back, and never need adjusting. Make the material a little softer/smoother (and get rid of that inner tag that will cause chafing). Find a way to flatten that seam. If you could fix those things, I would call this bra perfect, give it five stars, and recommend it to everyone and their mother (and my own mother). That would make it truly worth the price of the bra. I really wanted the corresponding active shorts in nude, but they appear to be discontinued. Neon colors not only are not my taste but are not permitted in the military, so no go on the new line of grey with neon green or red. HappyGirl from California

This bra was too difficult for me to get on and off!

Freya Response: I don’t know what your routine is for putting your bras on and taking them off, but if like most of us you have to fasten your bra in the front, and then somehow twist it around your body, this fabulous tip might help: First put on a slip, or a foundation garment –whatever you happen to have around –and bring it right up under your breasts. Now fasten the bra over the fabric, and slide it around your torso. Since there’s no drag of the bra on the skin, it will move easily into place. When the bra is in the right position, simply pull the slip or foundation garment out from under it, and presto, you’re in the bra! This will help to ensure you can actually get into the correct band size (which can be smaller than you might think.) Lisa from Charleston, TN USA

Great support, my only complaint is that the bra makes my boobs pointy! But it also makes them look super small. Love it so much I have 3 more though. Lauren from Raleigh, NC

I ordered the eurpoean size 36 FF for my American 36 H as instructed but when the item arrived it was too small in the cup. When I looked at the size the tag indicated that the size was Eurpean 36 FF but listed American size as 36 FF too. Then I was completely confused and sent the item back. I will just continue to wear two poor sports bras. I don't want to have to keep dragging my 2 kids out to the p.o. to return.

Freya Response: To simplify the sizing issue, we’re tagging UK sizing only in our UK brands (Elomi, Fantasie, Fauve and Freya). The tag will indicate that the U.S. size is the same as the UK size. We found when we listed UK, U.S. and French sizing on the same tag, many customers didn’t know where to look and got even more confused. This way no matter where you look on the tag the size will be the same (in your case a 36FF). If the bra is a UK brand, it will be UK-sized. Freya is designed to provide a “custom fit”. If you’re accustomed to wearing a more forgiving, stretchier bra, you’ll most likely need to go up an extra cup size in the Freya brand. Happily this bra goes up to an H-cup so you can definitely find your perfect fit. We hate to think of you having to wear ‘two poor sports bras’ so please don’t get frustrated with the process of finding the right size. I know it’s challenging, but oh-so-worth-it when you’ve found it (just finding that right number really will change your life)! Amanda from Missouri

I thought the band was a bit tight compared to my other Freya bras of the same size, but not so much that I would've order a different band size. This bra TOTALLY works for running; this is the first I've found to comfortably fit my size. LOVE! montana from montana
