My husband got this for me in a 32G (I wear a 32G/GG). The cups fit beautifully and the back is perfect (the only bra that I have that never marks me!). It gives great support and shape, the straps never fall off, and the bra portion is well constructed and built to last. I was afraid to wear this to sleep at first (afraid it would rip or tear) but the fabric holds up very well despite how light it is. I have to admit, I have worn this to bed probably 4 nights a week for the last month! The color is gorgeous (I have mine in the purple! Which I didn't see here. :( ) and the lace detailing on the hem and the shoulders is to die for. Lovely fit, and lovely item. So pleased with this!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Buy This in a Lingerie Store, Not Online. Requires a Fitting.

I've been lusting over this bra for ages. I'm not sure whether this fits small or large (I typically wear a 32G). I went in and was fit into a 32HH (I had read reviews saying the fit wasn't perfect) in the almond/black colorway. My husband bought this bra for me in a 32H in the pink/ivory colorway, and I don't get the same fit at all! The bra I tried on at the store was very supportive, and gave me great shape up top, and fit like a glove. My 32H is slightly large, but my nipples sit at the very tops of the cup, but I have very little definition up top. Over the course of the day, I sink into the cups and have minor gapping at the top. I have tried wearing this to work, and I fall out the top when I bend over. Which is completely unlike the bra I was fitted into, which I could jump around and bend over, do handstands in and although my chest would move, it would stay covered. The bra is gorgeous, but from my experience, it would be worth paying more money to get this from a boutique where you know the fit is going to be correct rather than guessing online.
As well, make sure to wash this in COLD water. I washed it in hot water and the dye bled all over the lace, so I have pale pink stains on the gorgeous white lace.
With all the cons out of the way, this gives the best uplift I have had in a bra, ever! Even with the odd fit, my chest is supported and lifted. It lays smooth under clothing, despite all the lace (unless you have the wrong size, like I do, then the gapping at the top may show). The attention to detail in this bra is gorgeous, and I absolutely love having a cute bra such as this in my wardrobe! The quality is highly apparent, the fabrics are soft, and it is well-made. I expect to have this bra for a very long time.
All in all, I don't think there would be any issues with this if I had gotten the proper size, and known to wash in as cold of water as possible.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is an encapsulation bra, not a compression bra. It will not press your chest against you, making it hard to breathe. It will not squish everything together, only to bounce as one instead of two individual breasts. This is awesome for fuller-busted women. As well, for those who want to know, it does not have fully adjustable straps, but the straps are adjustable. The band runs a tiny bit more snug than other bras (non-sports bra), but only enough that I fasten the bra on the middle clip instead of the tightest. The cups are true to size.
I do circus classes, everything from hula hoops, rope, aerial silks, trampoline, trapeze, tumbling, and juggling to general conditioning such as running, push ups, sit-ups, etc. Unfortunately for me, I wear a 30H/32G. I used to have to wear 3 or 4 sports bras, which would squish my chest until I couldn't breathe. This bra is NOT a compression bra, so you won't have that problem (you also won't have uniboob syndrome). As well, I'm used to bouncing, hanging upside down, swinging, spinning, running, dancing, jumping, rolling and anything else you can think of. I don't bounce in this bra, fall out the top or sides (or bottom!), get my arms caught on the straps, jiggle, or anything. This bra keeps me in place!
I've heard people complain that the shape this gives is awful, or that the gore comes up to high, but let's be serious girls. Why would you buy a sports bra for the way it looks? This bra is the most supportive I've ever had, and frankly, that makes up for any ugliness or "too much coverage" that this bra may have (depending on your tastes). Personally, I think the red or electric blue/black or lime green/black is awesome! Gives my workout a spot of color. I love this bra and will be buying more soon!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Would like to know about sizing for the Freya Maximum Control Sports bra

Does this bra fit true to size or do I need to order another size? I am regularly a 36D
The band runs slightly snug. Not enough to need to go up a back size, but be warned. The cups are true to size. The straps are adjustable, but not fully adjustable. Hope this helps!
