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

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

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
