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)!

If the back edge of the cup is cutting into the armpit, you should go down a cup size. Sometimes it’s better to compromise on the “tacking” and coverage factor, than to have to cope with the cup digging into the underarm.

Freya Response: This sports bra is designed to give the ultimate support, and seaming is one of the most effective ways to provide shaping and support. The more you wash and wear the bra, the more it will conform to the body and the softer and more comfy it will get. Also a bit of fabric softener in the final rinse water will help to soften things up as well.
