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

Very supportive bra. Initially I ordered the cup size recommended by the Freya sizing chart (which was one size smaller than my normal size). It was too small so I exchanged it for my normal cup size which fits much better. Erin from Bryan, TX

Well, I haven't fully decided that I'm keeping this bra. It does a great job at limiting movement and it's comfortable, and I like the color combo. But holy cone shaped boobies, batman! It's just so...pointy. I'll probably keep it, because it really does do a great job mitigating bounce, but it certainly won't be one I wear running around town. It fits exactly like all the Freya bras and swimsuits I own, which is probably 85% of my bra wardrobe. Jade from TX

Ok in a size 38F you can't expect a sports bra to look that great, so the fact that this gave me quite a pointed look is why I only gave it 4 stars. Otherwise, I wear it with the Champion double-dry reversible sports bra over it, and the combo keeps me from bouncing and is fairly comfortable. kjohn from sitka, ak usa

I normally wear a 36DD but had to up a cup size with this one. I am grateful for the coolmax fabric, and will update my review once I give it a try in the hot weather. The bra is very comfortable and there is no bounce---YAY!!! Be sure you adjust the straps. Jackie from North Huntingdon, PA

Love the fit. It has always been hard to find a sports bra that doesn't make me fall out of it. I'm a busty woman and this bra provided all the support and coverage I needed. I couldn't be happier. Eva from Beaverton, OR USA

This bra gives a ton of support, it feels like armor. I get a little boob squashage at the top, so maybe next time I will order one cup size larger. I wear 32F in my regular Freya bras, but with quite a bit of cleavage. So keep that in mind when choosing your size I guess. But, I use this bra for running, so I would rather have it too tight than too loose. It's not comfortable at all, but it serves the purpose of holding the boobs still during high impact exercise.

Great support holds the girls in their place.. the only minus in this bra is the fact that the cups seem shaped like cones.. so u get the feeling that the breasts are going different directions. monika from wheeling, IL USA

This is a fantastic sports bra. No bouncing, very firm support, and I actually still have a figure while working out! It does really lift, so it's a big change from other sports bras, but I love it! Great red color. Jessica from United States

I wear only Freya and Fantasie bras as my size is a difficult one to fit properly. This is my first "Sports Bra". It is very comfortable and snug fitting; can be worn alone or under clothing. The only caveat, and this may be because it's a sports bra, is that the straps had to be at their longest length to it properly. This is fine, but if you are a taller (longer torso) woman, this could be an issue. VegasShopper from Las Vegas, NV

Not so good at Bounce Control. Not as good as the elomi sports bra.

Freya Response: The Freya sports bra is a great bra and the Elomi sports bra is great as well. Some customers prefer one over the other, but is a 38 band in a GG the Elomi is probably a better choice for you. It has more support and extra fabric at the top of the cup to keep you from spilling over!!! Glad you like the Energize bra in Elomi!! jkbike from Reston, VA

I really like this bra; I have owned it before but that was before I got properly fitted so I decided to order in my new-found size (28FF). I noticed that some people were saying the band was too tight so I actually ordered the 30F. On me, the band was actually too loose and I could easily put it on the last row of hooks. The cup seamed ok but was a little baggy because the band was too big. I reordered in a 28FF and hoping this solves everything :) Otherwise the material is great and the support is soo much better than the rinky-dink "sports" bras I had previously been wearing.
