It's not bad as far as bounce reduction goes, but I really don't like the shaping. It definitely gives a very pointed look. The material is also thinner than I expected. I'm used to wearing t-shirt bras, and bra definitely has some show-through problems.

Freya Response: You may prefer Freya Active Molded Spacer Racerback Sports Bra AA4891. The horizontal seam in the AA4492 you ordered gives excellent support, but can be a challenging shape for some women. AA4891 is an immensely supportive seamless sports bra option, with lots of structure under the cups and in the center gore as a substitute for the underwire. E from VA

Returned this as the seams across the cups puckered; it's the right size, it's just the seam placement isn't right for me.

Freya Response: Susan, try Freya Active Molded Spacer Racerback Sports Bra AA4891. It’s a seamless, wire-free sports bra option that features a reinforced, wide elastic below the cups to substitute for the underwire and a nice, firm center gore that will give you separation vs. compression. Great shaping with no seams and lots of support! Susan from Rhode Island

I normally love Freya bras and swimwear and it fits me well. However, that was not the case with this sports bra. I ordered the 30FF and the center underwire did not rest on my sternum so I exchanged for the 30G. In that size the center fit better, but the underwire went too far under my arms. The seam across the cup also makes the breast look a bit conical- but mostly the fit was just very awkward. Definitely would not be comfortable for me to run in for a long time. I returned the 30G and may try another brand/style. LOVE the customer service and no hassle returns and exchanges with HerRoom! Shannon from Texas

Ugh! This is the classic example of the typical sports bra which does NOT fit large breasted women. The band was extremely small for a 36 and the cups did not fit at all. Huge gaps on the sides and extra material in the center of the cup. Sending it back immediately.

Freya Response: Sue, as a UK company our E (Universal Cup Size 3D) cups runs quite a bit larger than a standard E (3D). Your best bet would be to size down to a DD if the cup is fitting too large. Also be sure to hook the bra on the loosest set of hooks when first trying it on – the best way to ensure the consistent fit and to extend the life of your bras is to start each one on the loosest hook and tighten as it wears in.

It doesn't come up on the picture, but this bra has a very unflattering seam running across the middle of it. It produces a very Madonna-cone-bra effect, one I really didn't want while working out. It was returned instantly.

Freya Response: Briana, as you probably know, the seams in this sports bra (and all bras) provide support that is leaps and bounds beyond what seamless bras offer. Unfortunately the tradeoff is that sometimes we must layer once over them to keep them hidden. Briana

This is a really good bra for support, especially when you are going to be outside or working out for an extended period of time. I normally wear a 30H but went with the 32GG based on comments from reviewers. It fits very snugly in the band on the loosest setting. The underwire fits me perfect. The cups do give you sort of a torpedo look and there is a weird ripple of fabric where the seams come together in the middle of the cup. But for someone who has searched high and low to find a nice quality sports bra, I am very happy! The fabric is awesome. It is thicker than you would expect and the quality of an expensive nice sports bra! Kelly from USA

This is a very effective sports bra and I use it regularly. My only complaint is the stitching across the breast shows through tshirts. No one notices but it bugs me a little. Jessica from Memphis/TN/USA

The universal sizing for this sports bra is off a little bit. The other items I purchased fit great for my 38K bust..this item was much too small as I was spilling out. Jackie from Michigan

Love, Love, Love this bra. It is a dream for a larger busted woman. I can exercise without wearing 2 bras and do not have pain. It is supportive without cutting off ones circulation. I will be ordering more of these as I am now able to exercise more. Vicki P. from GA

Hands down the best support I've found for larger busts; comfortable straps, encapsulation design, and great colors are a huge bonus. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I recently purchased the Freya sports bra (style 4491). It has great support and fits really well, however it makes my breasts REALLY pointy and wide. Do you have a suggestion on another Freya sports bra?? I have a Freya bra and it is WONDERFUL.

Freya Response: The Freya 4491 is a great supportive style, but if you want another option you can try the Freya Sports Bra 4891 which is a new racer back smooth cup bra that will give you a less pointy look and a more round silhouette. AnnaMarie from Tampa, Fl United States

Great support, but not terribly flattering silhouette. Makes my breasts look a little torpedo-ish.

Freya Response: If you’re accustomed to wearing seam-free bras, it’s understandable that you’re finding the shape of this style to be a bit more pronounced. A bra with seams will appear a bit less round and more defined. However seams are our friends as they shape and support the breast tissue (with no extra bulk) like nothing else -perfect for a sports bra! Also you’ll find after wearing and washing this bra it will conform more to your natural shape. Robin from Auburn, WA

Finally! A sports bra that really supports the larger cupsizes without squishing, creating a "monoboob", and is actually comfortable! yay! Submitted from TheUndies.com

This is my favorite sports bra. It took trial and error to get the correct size, as I wear a 36E in regular Freya, but 38DD in this style. I wear a 36F in most other styles. This bra has excellent support, I often wear it on week-ends as I find it quite comfortable. This is the sixth one I have purchased and the fourth color. wlw from washington dc

The notes for this bra said it is a tight fit and that is true. The first day I wore it I thought maybe I should have gone up a size. However, after just a couple of days it felt fine and it offers great support and looks terrific under my workout clothes. Charisse

Love, love, love this sports bra!! Is comfy and keeps the girls in place! It passed the Zumba test with flying colors! I definitely feel supported in this bra without feeling like I have some sort of medieval contraption on! As far as the shaping goes, it is a bit pointy but not enough for me to worry about - it keeps them up and I don't bounce. Woud recommend this one!! Amy from Houston, TX

This is my favourite bra ever! it is absolutely supportive, i teach high impact zumba classes and this works beautifully. other sports bras make me have a big shelf monoboob, this one does not do that at all! It also looks good so if it peaks out from my tank tops it is fine, i actually have a few students who have bought these bras as well based on seeing mine and my experience. I also have the red and the grey and green, i do prefer the one with the underwire. And i have the all black for everyday use, it is very flattering... Niki

I bought two different style bras of the same size. This one was so small I could hardly get it on. Brenda from Mound, MN USA
