Freya ‘Arabella’: Bra Review

1x1.trans Freya Arabella: Bra Review Invest In Your ChestAs you can see this bra is pretty and pretty revealing! The sheer panels of the cups do not affect the beautiful shape this bra creates, and this is definitely one of my favourite Freya bras that I own. This ‘Cassis’ colour is my favourite that is currently available, but the Arabella comes in a multitude of gorgeous colours!The ‘Midnight’ colour-way is also gorgeous:

As you can see the embroidery is really good quality – the colours are beautiful (the Cassis, Oyster and the Midnight are probably my favourites)and all round a really pretty bra.

Don’t be put off by the sheerness of the cup, as I actually find the combination of clever cup and engineering makes this bra extremely supportive and great for the fuller bust. In GG+ styles the lower half of the cup is double lined which I’ve seen causes a bit of upset with bigger-boobed girls, but nonetheless it’s a gorgeous bra from Freya and would be one of the first I’d recommend to someone looking to buy something from them.

The back band seems a little looser than the average Freya bra; my friend wears a 28G in it whereas her usual size is a 30FF. The cups are also quite generous… I am a 28FF/G and I find the FF in this style fits the cups perfectly: the shape is practically seamless!

Again, the Arabella is an outstanding fitting bra but also one of my favourites from Freya for being downright beautiful to look at. The sheer cups do not detract from the perfect fit and support, there are multiple gorgeous colours to choose from; essentially the Arabella is the perfect marriage between fit, sex-appeal and cuteness.

  2. I agree with this review, the band seems looser and the cups seems generous, apart from at the top. People who require a bit of room there, are likely to find that this bra cuts in. Also from a GG and bigger the bottom of the cups are not so sheer, or as good looking, but I looked it up on stanikomania (a while a go, it was a bit of a search job, I do not have the link unfortunately), and it seemed people had cut away the extra lining with sucess. You have to be very carefull not to cut into the other layer of fabric, but the support don’t seem to suffer from the extra layer being taken out. I can not say for sure though, as the bra didn’t fit me correctly, not available in my proper sizes.

    • Thanks for your feedback, Lillefix! Such a shame that you can’t get this in your size :/ what bras are your favourites that are available to you? x

      • Freya Clarissa, and I’m looking forward to the new Freya Lauren. Neither is my favourite for the look, but for the fit, they look alright. I hope to find something at Ewa Michalak in the future, I hope they make non padded to sometimes.

        • Are you a resident of the US? x

          • No. The problem for me is that there are few brands that make them, and from those that do, I only fit a few reasonably because of shape.

            I love the look of many of the Curvy Kate bras, that’s how I found you through one of your reviews of them. But I do not fit them since getting bigger than GG. I will give them another shot, but I don’t think it’ll work. I have the Ella bra, in ivory/coral, it is absolutely beutiful, but doesn’t fit. That and the English rose bra by masquerade (also doesn’t fit) are probably the best looking bras I’ve ever met. Get them if you find them, I think you probably would fit them, though I’m unsure of the size selection for the masquerade, it’s also more than a few seasons old.

          • I’m not sure where you where going with it? Bad bra stores?

          • Yeah, I’m quite interested what it’s like over there. Thanks for the recommendations – I will keep my eyes peeled! x

  3. Lovely bra! So gutted the FF didn’t fit me but I managed to get an F so that’s in the post for me! Yay! x

  4. It looks great, but do you think it would fit really close-set breasts? Is that I’ve been struggling to find bras since my boobs are so close-set :s
    Do you know some bras that would be good for me?
    I think my size is about 28FF/G, but I’m not so sure since I’m only recently looking for proper fit bras and the central gore in the ones I tried was just too high for me. Thank you.

  6. I love this range the sizing is ok once you know the size to buy. I am 36E but wear with this bra 36DD i love the sheerness of the bra makes me feel sexy but if your wearing a top that is slighty sheer you need to check first in mirror to make sure no nipple can be seen i have big areolas and some tops it shows through. Great bra a must have.
