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.
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.
