Freya Firm Control Wire-Free Spacer Sports Bra with Racerback
I want to like this more than I do
I really want to like this sports bra. I like some of Freya's other bras and I can feel how supportive it is. However, the front-side edges, from the straps to where the cups begin (from my front to under my arms), cut into my skin and after about 30 minutes of wearing it, I'm guessing that it would dig into my skin. If it was cut a little wider, I think it would work much better. Unfortunately, after trying multiple sizes, I had to return it.

nice racerback, but not for running
Love this for pilates, dance aerobics, etc. I prefer Freya's maximum control underwire sports bra for the highest impact activities, but this is a nice racerback option.

Awkward to put on and take off
I have a Freya Sports bra and I really like it, so when I saw this style I thought it would be perfect. I usually wear bras with an underwire so that was my first problem. This one is wireless and just didn't feel like it would support high impact excercising --- although it could be me. Once I had it on the fit was ok but it was difficult getting out of it. I felt as if I would have to practice a bit before taking it off at the gym for fear of getting stuck in it. As another person noted, you will have to stretch it out quickly in order to get this thing on and off without hassle. Then what? As much as I'd like to keep it, I don't want to wrestle with a bra. I'm sending it back and trying a different style. Thankfully, the return is hassle free.

I did not care for this product. Not only did it fit small, but the material did not allow for stretching or movement of any sort. I returned this one.

Close to perfect
Consider ordering 1 cup size larger. My regular size is 34 DDD/34 DDDD and the 34 E in this bra allows my breasts to peak out at the sides. I work out, so my upper back is wide. Under arm measurement is 38", around ribs measurement is 32" and measurement around breasts is 42". The 34 F fits pretty well but I wish the side support was a little better. The racerback straps are slightly wider than my workout tops but that is minor. The front of the bra is low enough that its pretty well hidden under clothing. That is hard to find in a maximum support bra for larger breasts. This bra gives a nice shape under clothes.
