If you are bigger busted and want to feel like you did when you were a kid running around, not worrying about your bust bouncing all around, then this is the bra to buy. I researched many other bras and this one lived up to my expectations. As a side note, if you LIKE the "uni-boob" like I do in a sports bra simply where a razor back over top and you're set. Plus, you'll get added compression. Joanna from Baltimore Area

It took moderate trial and error until I settled on a size, but once I got it right I fell in love. I found the band size to run a little loose (normal for street wear, but not the extra snug fit needed for stability in high-impact sports) and the cup size to run a little small - I'm normally a 30D, but I wound up with a 28E in this bra. I do high impact dance aerobics with lots of jumping, so I need major bounce control and this bra does the job. Going a size smaller in the band and getting the correspondingly larger cup gave me the stability I need. The construction seems sturdy, the straps seem strong with good padding on the shoulder, and the cups have great encapsulation and compression. The fact that this bra gives great lift and actually makes my breasts look fantastic made me decide to buy another one in a 30DD (my regular band size) for everyday wear. It's the only sports bra I've ever found in my small band size that offers the serious support large-breasted women need without the usual drawbacks of unibreast syndrome and bulky construction (velcro flaps, etc.). Since I haven't had this bra very long, I can't attest to its durability, but it seems well-constructed and I think it should stand the test of wear and tear. I'm very happy to have found this bra and highly recommend it. VC from NC

My breasts are pushed out to under my armpits. Customer service suggested the Freya 4392, but the band under the armpit looks very high. (I'm 5' and small torso.)

Fryea Response: 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. Deb from NYC

A very supportive bra with lift, separation and compression. Makes my cup size look smaller than it is, which I welcome. I use it for playing tennis and only the balls bounce! The hardware on one strap cuts into my shoulder and is mildly uncomfortable, but I tried adjusting and it is a little better. Seams in the cup do show through the DryFit fabric of my body contouring tennis outfit. Overall, I am happy with the bra. Sally from New York

I was surprised by how well this bra fit me. In some other reviews it was noted that it ran small. I took a chance in ordering my usual size and I am delighted to FINALLY get support I've been requiring. My only issue is the center seam on the cup. But I suspect it is needed for cup construction to provide support for a full bosom. It isn't itchy or anything, it's simply an aesthetic thing under t-shirts. It does the job! Now, I can finally work out to full capacity without worry. Marissa from Aroma Park

I spent a lot of time looking for a new sports bra before buying this one. This bra by Freya offers quite a bit of support, however, after a few weeks of using it, I haven't found it very comfortable. I have worn it lifting weights, in step aerobics class, yoga, and while using the elliptical trainer. The high coverage by the shoulders and above the breasts restricts my range of motion while doing yoga and lifting weights so that the material digs into my arms. I have adjusted the shoulder straps and the band, have washed it a couple times, but I've decided it's not the best bra for me. Samantha from Ames, IA, USA

This is a great sports bra and what's even better is I can wear it for everyday and totally feel like I can go out of the house and still look great (and not like I'm wearing a sports bra). Very supportive, super comfortable! AmyLynn from Shakopee MN USA

This bra gives me extreme support and makes me feel at least 2 cup sizes smaller. With that said, be warned that it's a tight fit and takes some time getting used to. I find that I cannot wear it all day and usually take it off the minute I am home for the day. Also, there is a seem running through the cup that does show when wearing lighter fabrics. If you are looking for a bra to run in... this is it. Andrea from New York

This is a really nice sports bra with great support and coverage. I recommend this sports bra to anyone who does high impact exercising and wants to minimize the bounce. Audrey from Pittsburgh

The Freya Underwire Sports bra does give a significant amount of support, however the seam in the middle of the cup is unsightly under a t shirt and the fabric and tags are very itchy. It is however the best sports bra I have found for the purpose of support, and therefore I continue to wear it in hopes that it will be more comfortable after a few more washes.

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. Gina from Florida

Love it. This bra actually supports the girls when I run or jump around in exercise classes. With my old sports bras, my breasts were frequently sore but that's never happens now. The bra also keeps me cool since it separates the breasts from each other. The only downsides are that the bra makes my breasts a little pointy and doesn't seem to provide any size minimization.

This is my second go-around for this one. It is one of the most supportive bras I have ever owned. Even though it is a "sports bra" it also works well under dress-up clothes as well (provided they have substantial coverage/modest). Jessica from Lexington, KY, USA

This bra did not work for me. I called customer service just to make sure I was ordering the correct size. I normally wear a 34G, they recommended the 34F. The cups were way way too small although the band size was perfect. I also ordered the Donna Karan sports bra in 34G. It was perfect.

Freya Response: Happy the DK worked for you –it runs a bit fuller and the cups are stretchier than the 4002. If you still want to try 4002, I would recommend that you try the FF- or G-cup. 4002 provides a very specific fit, with non-stretch cups to ensure complete “motion control” with no bounce.

I am so pleased with this work out bra! I used to think I had to layer 2 or 3 "tank" style bras to hold myself tight enough to actually run on the treadmill....but now I love this one bra does the job! Paula from Dallas

Unfortunately it was a tiny bit too small in the cups, but the band was the perfect fit for exercising. The seaming across the bust isn't the most modest, but at least they give you two breasts in stead of one!! It is very good on 'bounce control' and I'm excited to try it out!! mallory from OH,USA
