After a bra intervention and having worn a 36GG before, I have decided I am probably a 32H. I have tried on in the shops one or two styles in a 34GG and a 34H but struggled to find anything in a 32H to actually try, only one Gorgeous one in Debenhams which was a teeny bit tight, and I have seen on here that they come up small, so am going to order a couple in a 32H online.
Freya are fairly true, if anything running a tad big. Debenhams gorgeous however are known to be small in the back. So if the Gorgeous 32 was a sniff tight, definitely try on the 32 in Freya
I'm guessing the padded one you tried would have been the Freya Deco, which only goes up to a GG so it must have been the 34GG you tried. However, IME it's quite big in the cups (probably about a size bigger than other freyas). I'd try the 32GG and 32H probably
I bought a Freya bra today. It is a nursing bra. In other makes (Royce, Panache) I was a 36J, I needed a 36H in the Freya. The lady measuring (Bravissimo), said Freya have a tendency to come up a bit bigger in the cup.
Compared to Fantasie,for me, they are just uncomfortable. I was told they were smaller in the cups so I went down on tje under the boob measurement and up a cup and the ones that I own are still pretty uncomfortable.
Funny I'm the opposite Allthings - although they're not the best for me. I think most people seem to have one or two brands which suit their boobs better so will feel "comfier" because the wire shape, cup width, projection etc suits their breast shape. But for someone else at the same size the same bra will be hell!
