I bought the black version of this bra about a year ago. I really like it (good fit, good support) so I wanted another one and chose the red. It does NOT fit the same; it comes up too high under my arms so it chafes when I move around, and the material seems a bit thinner. Not sure if it is a difference in the overall fit/quality of this bra or a difference between the colors (which I notice shopping at other websites--you can't trust the sizing from one color to the next or from one order to the next...frustrating). Nevertheless, I wore it thinking it would be fine and can't return it now.

Freya Response: Usually when you get a black bra the fit is a little more snug in the band and the cup due to shrinkage in the fabric when the bra is dyed black. It is possible that the red will fit differently than the black. If it cuts you under the arm is it possible that the cup is too big for you? Try pulling the straps down a bit to see if that helps and make sure the band is lower on your back so the band of the bra is parallel from the front to the back-should always be even, not riding up your back.

This bra is very different from any other Freya bra I've ever tried. First, the band is very tight and not stretchy. Second, the underwires are pretty wide and extremely soft and flexible. Third, it has four hooks in four columns (for a total of 16 hooks). It is quite supportive (my breasts will still move a little, but not to the point where it hurts or damages my tissue) and the band is very tight. I would recommend you order a size up from your normal Freya size. The cups also seem pretty small and the shape is very pointy. Overall, I'm satisfied except for minor issues (such as the cups still being a little too small for me and the underwires being too flexible). Betty from Nebraska

Went up a band size and down a cup size in this bra after trying on my true size. I found that I would rather have just a little tiny bit of bounce to deal with instead of feeling like I couldn't breathe on an uphill run. After wearing it for a few weeks, however, wish I had just gotten the usual. Loosens up fast, so if you really are doing high impact stuff, tough out the tight band and you won't regret it after 3 weeks. And I like the pointy minimized boobs for running - I don't feel like I'm a danger to drivers, and I'm not so self-conscious so I get a better workout. Megan from WI, USA

This bra, while very pretty and bright, seemed to me to be a size too small all the way around. I bought a 36D, but in this bra I think I should have ordered a 38DD. I am returning it. Terri from Burlington Vt USA

A great sports bra! Comfortable, true to size, and highly effective in reducing any bouncing of the goods (I wear it for high-impact, long-distance running). Some people may want to know that it does give a somewhat pointy shape, but worn under a top seems fine to me. a runner

This bra supports both the breasts and the back during work outs. The size comparison chart recommends a smaller size cup compared to other bras like Wacoal. However, I returned the first Freya sport bra in a 32F because it was too small. I exchanged it for the 32G, the same size I usually get in Wacoal and it fit perfectly. Mary from Michigan

Pretty good bounce control, but still a little too much movement for me to wear running. Also, I found the underwire uncomfortable - it kind of cut into the underside of my breast. Rachel from Portland, or

I have recently lost 45 pounds and was unsure of what size to order. I ordered a 34DD. It was way too small...so I sent a question in on the online help site and the person who answered was very helpful...so I have sent it back for exchange and ordered a 36 E...so we will see...even though I have had problems with size the experience has been pleasant. from Lowell, AR

According to the size comparison chart I should get a 32F in the Freya. However, the other reviews said this bra ran small in the cups. So I ordered up to 32FF, but that was too small. So I sent it back to exchange it for a 32G. I've already received an email that Herroom received it and is processing a new order to send me the other size. Great customer service! Mary from Michigan

This bra did not work for me because I did not like how pointy the cups made your breasts appear. I still want to look good in clothes wearing a sports bra and I did not care for this silhouette, which was reminiscent to me of the 1950's. Also, I felt there was not enough fabric to prevent nipple coverage. On the flip-side this bra is very pretty and for those for whom the above is not an issue, I felt there was enough bounce support.

Freya Response: Gwen, check out our fabulous new Freya “spacer racer-back” sports bra 4891 –just the ticket for ladies like yourself who prefer a rounder seam-free look… This soft cup bra has breathable spacer fabric moulded cups, and of course uses Coolmax fabric to wick away moisture and keep you cool and comfy. Also the light spacer foam padding will provide the modesty factor you’re looking for. I know you’ll love this bra! Gwen from California

poor fit

Sharon Response: So often it’s not the style of bra which isn’t working, it’s an incorrect size! It’s difficult to say what the specific problem might be as you haven’t given us a lot of details. Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit to help you. Sharon from Roseville/CA/USA

I went with 34GG because that's my size in the Freya Deco too. The fit is perfect. One tiny gripe: I have full, round breasts and they fit perfectly but after a few minutes, they're popping out of the top while being flattened into odd cones below. The shape is just...weird. But I don't much care. I will deal with it for the time I'm in the gym. For the first time since I was a teenager, I can do jumping jacks! Actual jumping jacks, not just the leg part while I hold my chest down awkwardly. Praise be to the Freya Active! I am so in love with this bra. Alaine from Simi Valley, CA

Tight under arms. I thought it felt a bit too snug, but I kept it anyway to avoid having to reship. I'm hoping it will stretch after use.

Freya Response: Freya 4392 is one of our all-time customer favorites! It’s a sports bra, so it’s designed to give complete “motion control” support, and it should be fairly snug to begin with. Don’t worry, generally bras will stretch with washing and wearing… –but if meanwhile you find it’s just too uncomfortable, you can use an extender for a while until it does stretch.

This is a really supportive sports bra. I use it at the gym regularly, and if you can figure out the right size for you, it fits great and is comfortable and supportive and defined. Though some reviewers have mentioned it looks cone-like, I think this is an exaggeration. While a little bit pointy, I don't think the shape is unflattering, at least under clothing, and is completely worth it for the sports purpose of the bra. I did not have a problem with the band size, which is normal for me, but with finding the appropriate cup size translating across brands. The sizing/equivalency chart suggested I needed an "F" cup but a "G" was much more accurate. Unfortunately HerRoom seemed to run out of the G cup and kept pushing back the re-stocking date so it took several months to complete my exchange. Other than that, the bra itself is a great buy.

I am between sizes in the band area (between 30 and 32), and because of the reviews and the tip of women complaining about the bra being too tight I decided to go with the 32. It was not tight at all, it was too loose, I had to put it on the tightest hook which is not good for sports bras, usually one wants them to be a good fit or a little tight on the loosest hook so that when it stretches you can adjust. I had read that the bra gave you a torpedo shape but I liked the fact that it separated your breasts so I tried it, it was just way to pointy and looked strange with a tee-shirt over it. Therefore I decided to return the bra. If you can get over torpedo boobs, it was a well constructed and very supportive bra.

Freya Response: We agree, 4392 is a super supportive bra, and yes, the breasts are lifted high-high-high which gives quite a “European” silhouette. Perhaps you’d like our Freya 4002 sports bra: This fabulous little number has under-wires to help with support. It still has quite a defined look, but the shape is softer and less pronounced than #4392. Although it’s not seam-free, lots of women love the shape it gives them so much that they’ll wear it as an everyday bra. Also, we’re very excited to introduce our brand new Freya Active bra #4891 (Shipping in Dec. 2011): We call this our “racer- spacer” style. It’s a soft-cup bra with breathable spacer fabric molded cups giving you a perfectly smooth and natural look, with optimum support. You’ll be able to wear this seamless style under your tightest T-shirts! If you’re finding the 32-band is too loose for you –but the cups fit –try a 30G. Diana from Suffolk NY United States

This is a pretty good bra. I haven't done anything too physical in it, but it seems like it would keep the girls pretty secure. Not a good bra to wear for a long time though. It gets uncomfortable after a couple of hours Astrid from Elmira, NY

I should have carefully read the tip about buying a larger band size. It fits a bit too tight but I do like not bouncing around when I work out. Hopefully it will stretch out somewhat after a few wearings. It is a very nice looking bra. Joyce from Los Angeles

great bra. a little pointy on the cups, but under a tshirt, that works out. no bounce... no riding up in the back... and no uniboob so you can actually wear it with regular clothes. a great exercise bra for small frames/ large cups. pb from honolulu

I loved this bra. It was awesomely supportive, until about 18 wear and washes (cold wash and air dry). Then it was a little less supportive, there was more movement while I was running. Then after about 2 dozen wear and washes one of the underwires popped out of my sixty dollar bra. I wasn't even wearing this on a daily basis, and it only got washed with other underwear.

Freya Response: We’re so glad you love this bra, we love it too! We recommend you buy your bras to fit on the loosest hook. Unlike some other sports bras our cups are non-stretch, which is extremely important for maximum support! The band however will relax a bit with wearing and washing. If you’ve started on the loosest hook, you can tighten up the band as it stretches to help recover some of the support. Are you putting your bra into a lingerie bag in your laundry? Washing machines can be pretty brutal on bras, particularly when the bras have under-wires –lots of stress and strain especially in the spin cycle which can weaken the seam closures. Also, it’s important to use a lingerie wash, because many harsher detergents actually eat away at the elastic used in the fabrication. It’s also a great idea to alternate the bras you wear on a daily basis: This can really prolong the life of your bra. Mallory from Okinawa, Japan
