Freya Totally Tartan Balcony Bra
Runs Ridiculously Small
I'm a 36JJ. I got fitted at a bra store recently, and all of the 36JJ Panache bras I bought fit me perfectly. So, I definitely know what my bra size is.
However, this Freya bra runs VERY SMALL. The cups were so small that my breasts were rubbing together because the front part of the bra didn't fit in between my breasts properly. I don't even think sizing up to a K would have helped. This is my first Freya bra, so maybe they run smaller than Panache. The size chart says to order based on UK sizes, which I did, but the bra I received seemed more like a US 36JJ than a UK 36JJ.
I'm disappointed that it didn't fit because it's a cute bra. This bra doesn't run true to size, so I would suggest going up a cup size or 2. The construction of the bra looks good. The straps aren't flimsy, and the elastic band looks sturdy, but the sizing is way off.
