Firstly, this is one of the Freya plunge/balcony bras that comes in a different model for GG and GG+ cups. While I was aware that the cups wouldn't be sheer all over in my size, I didn't know that the center gore is also **a full inch higher**, which means it's much more of a balcony style than a plunge. I have close-set, bottom-heavy boobs, and while the underwires on this bra weren't super widely-set, they just weren't close enough together to work with my breasts.
The bra was really pretty, but the gore fit issues and the mesh all over meant that it wasn't comfortable or well-fitting enough for me to bother hanging on to it. In addition, the band was stretchier than I expected of a 30, if not to the same extent as the Freya Ada plunge, which I adore.
I wish that Freya didn't have such a radically different GG and up version, because I honestly think the lower gore would work better for me, but alas. I also hope that HerRoom will eventually add cautionary notes to some of these listings so that GG+ customers don't get a shock when they order these bras. It's hard enough finding brands that carry my size without also having to divine how exactly the higher cup sizes might differ from the lower sizes.
Freya Response: Florence, we’re not sure if the “mesh all over” that you’re referring to is a comfort or an aesthetic issue. The bra is a sheer mesh fabrication, as pictured. Often times, we design our GG+ cups with an additional layer of sheer mesh to support the usually heavy breast tissue of larger cup sizes, and ensuring they meet the Freya standard of support for the rest of our cup sizes. We will take into consideration your suggestion regarding annotating these bras that are reinforced in the extended cup sizes. Thank you!
