I don’t know what your routine is for putting your bras on and taking them off, but if like most of us you have to fasten your bra in the front, and then somehow twist it around your body, this fabulous tip might help: First put on a slip, or a foundation garment –whatever you happen to have around –and bring it right up under your breasts. Now fasten the bra over the fabric, and slide it around your torso. Since there’s no drag of the bra on the skin, it will move easily into place. When the bra is in the right position, simply pull the slip or foundation garment out from under it, and presto, you’re in the bra!
This will help to ensure you can actually get into the correct band size (which can be smaller than you might think.)

To simplify the sizing issue, we’re tagging UK sizing only in our UK brands (Elomi, Fantasie, Fauve and Freya). The tag will indicate that the U.S. size is the same as the UK size. We found when we listed UK, U.S. and French sizing on the same tag, many customers didn’t know where to look and got even more confused. This way no matter where you look on the tag the size will be the same (in your case a 36FF). If the bra is a UK brand, it will be UK-sized.
Freya is designed to provide a “custom fit”. If you’re accustomed to wearing a more forgiving, stretchier bra, you’ll most likely need to go up an extra cup size in the Freya brand. Happily this bra goes up to an H-cup so you can definitely find your perfect fit. We hate to think of you having to wear ‘two poor sports bras’ so please don’t get frustrated with the process of finding the right size. I know it’s challenging, but oh-so-worth-it when you’ve found it (just finding that right number really will change your life)!
