Review: Emily Soft Cup Bra by Freya
Product description: Smooth, soft non-wired cups for a comfortable but still flattering fit. Available in rich carnation orange and decorated with complimenting cream/nude polka dot print, rich lace trims and fold bows to add to the bold look. Adjustable shoulder straps fasten with three hooks at the back for maximum support.
My size: 30HH
Fit: At first I thought this bra was too big for me but I think it’s just because it’s so different to any other bra I’ve ever had as it doesn’t have the wires. It doesn’t give you an uplift at all, it’s extremely natural. It’s not my favourite shape, I like more of an uplifted shape but that’s just my opinion – everyone’s different, aren’t they!
Colour: I really like the colour of this bra. It’s called “Carnation” and it’s a beautiful coral colour. If you know me, then you’ll know that I’m a massive fan of polka dots so I love the pattern for that reason. It’s a very cute bra, the only thing I would change is the secondary colour. I wish it was white rather than a pale beige as I think it would have made it even cuter and made it stand out more.
Comfort: The main feature about this bra is that it doesn’t have those often uncomfortable wires, so it’s very comfortable in that way. Non-wired bras are not so common these days so if you are not a fan of the underwire then this bra is for you. It’s got a nice, strong back band as well so it gives you the support you need to take the weight off you shoulders but still being very comfy at the same time.
Occasion: I, personally, would wear this bra as a comfy, “end of a long day” bra but plenty of women prefer to wear non-wired bras as an every day bra. Another option would be as a “bed bra”. I know a lot of women who find it sore going to bed without a bra on and this would be a great solution as it’s supportive in a very gentle way.
