This garment was neither comfortable nor cute. When I ordered, I noticed the sizing was standardized "S/M/L" and that should have a warning flag. Here are my main complaints with this piece:
1) The band doesn't have much flexibility. When you have large breasts (I usually wear a 34FF or G in Freya), you need stability from both the bottom and top. While this band ultimately fit well once it was on, it was an uncomfortable squeeze to get over my head and breasts. Any movement also translated into somewhat awkward pulling around the lower shoulder blades from the material's lack of give.
2) Why oh why is there a bow smack in the middle of the front of this thing?? I thought, okay, I look a little flattened but I'll try it with a t-shirt. Perhaps a solution for under those frustrating button-up shirts. Alas, no. The little bow shows right through as an unpleasant shape right in the middle of my boobs under my shirt.
So this garment is not made for wearing under shirts you need any kind of decent front silhouette with, which makes me thing it's pretty much just lingerie. But it's fairly difficult to get out of, having no clasps or connections and very little give, so I had to bend over to shimmy out of it. Bleh. A good idea but not a keeper. Maybe women with smaller breasts will have better luck, but this is definitely not the solution I was so hoping it might be.
HerRoom Response: Sorry this style disappointed you, but for an everyday t-shirt bra we suggest a more constructed style like Freya Idol AA1050. Also if bows aren't your thing, which they aren't for everyone, they can easily be removed.
