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

Hated the bra, there is a seam in the middle of the cup so you can not wear any kind of a leotard or tight top, the seam shows through and looks terrible. I returned it.

Freya Response: Patti, we include seaming in this bra to increase the support offered for high impact activities, but we do find it unfortunate that this was not appropriate for your lifestyle. You will be happy to hear that we are about to offer a seam-free sports bra with an underwire to correct this very issue. We hope you will continue to try Freya Active in the future! patti from california

I am very disappointed with this bra. I put it on and my daughter immediately and correctly informed me that I have "double boobs." The cups seem to sit in a odd, rigid angle which does not allow for adjusting the cup to fit around the boob. It is as if there is not enough cup but there is. Just a weird fit.

Freya Response: Donna, stay tuned for a new Freya Active sports bra that will feature a seamless cup and also an underwire. The firm fabrication in the sports bra you ordered offers increased support, but appears to be the wrong shape for you. We hope you will continue to try Freya Active in the future. Thanks!

This is the best sports bra I have ever owned. It fits great!! The band is a bit tight when I first started wearing it but it did loosen the more I wore the bra. Melissa from Los Angeles, Ca.

Love love love this sports bra! I can run comfortably. Such great support. The band runs small so I went up one size, normally I would wear a 34HH. Kathy from Utah

I have a very difficult bust line, one breast ebing larger than the other also very droopy!! I found this brand of Bra. Freya when I went shopping in New York City, my friend told me I needed something to make my clothes look right. This was the second bra I tried on. I absolutely feel a different person wearing them, I now wear only this brand.and look quite good. Mollie from Shelter Island NY

I was not prepared for the coverage of this bra - even 'though I should have been in consideration of the size needed... The bra is terrific and I'm happy with the jiggle minimalization! I can do Zumba now and not "black both my eyes!" Thanks! Lynn from Santa Monica, CA

I'm disappointed this bra didn't work for me. The fabric is nice; like wearing a t-shirt. It seems like it would be supportive, but on me, the underwire points out forward causing 2 pointy spots from under my shirt. I didn't keep the bra.

Freya Response: Nicole, is it possible that the cup size was too small on the bra? If the bra wasn’t “tacking” against your chest wall in the center (the underwires resting against your body versus bowing outward, which is a common sign of a bra that is too small), then they could be forced outward in other places. Freya also makes a number of non-wire sports bras, several of which feature the same supportive frame and seaming as the sports bra you ordered, with an extra firm band under the breasts substituted for the underwire. We hope you can find a sports bra in our range that suits you, and stay tuned for more exciting underwire sports bras in the near future from Freya! Nicole from Woodbridge, VA
