Why I recommend this bra
The main reason why I absolutely adore this balcony bra is that it offers a great uplift effect, without too much padding. The uplift actually comes from the positioning of the bra elements. Since the straps are widely set apart, the lifting starts from the bottom of the boobs. The most problematic area when it comes to bigger boobs is specifically the bottom part. It requires the biggest concentration of support and uplift. Otherwise, you may end up with saggy boobs which aren’t successfully fighting the gravity.
If you have naturally dropped boobs, you’ll find this balcony bra particularly useful. Aside from being ultra-supportive, it also has a boosting effect, for those days when you’re feeling extra, and you want put your cleavage out there.
Besides the lifting, this kind of balcony bra construction shapes the boobs, giving them a more rounded, balanced appearance.
All about the bra
This Freya t-shirt balcony bra is without a doubt one of their most popular bra models, and for a reason. No matter how saggy your boobs are (especially if you’re a mom and the girls couldn’t get back into their initial shape), this balcony bra can give you the enhancement you need. Having an underwire, it guarantees maximum support and consistency in uplifting. However, don’t let the underwire discourage you, since you will definitely not feel it.
The stretch straps will not allow the bra to move, or the intensity of the uplift to change. This is particularly important, since you don’t want to have to worry about adjusting the bra all the time. Slipping straps are definitely a deal-breaker for me.
Besides being a balcony bra, it is also a t-shirt bra, since it has a seamless design which blends with all kinds of clothes. It prevents any show-through, and subtly conceals the shape and contour of the bra.
How does the bra fit?
Freya is definitely known for some of the best-fitting bras on the market, especially for busty gals. I gotta be honest and admit that they’ve exceeded my expectations with this particular balcony bra. Combining the uplifting effect of a balcony bra on one hand, and the comfort and simplicity of a t-shirt bra on the other, constitutes a product which is hard to match.
Let me tell you about the transformation my 32DDD client experienced with this particular balcony bra. Being busty, she had never even considered wearing anything but full coverage bras. She was absolutely determined to leave the cleavage aside, just so she wouldn’t encounter any difficulties regarding the fit of the bra.
On the other hand, I was very determined to pull her out of her comfort zone and show her that there are definitely more choices. In order to give her the best of both worlds, I convinced her to go with this Freya t-shirt balcony bra. To this day, she swears by this beautiful bra, since it offers all the support she needs, while still leaving some room for cleavage. Also, it creates the most natural-looking shape, avoiding the pointy look we all despise.
Is the bra comfortable?
My 32DD client had trouble finding bras which have only two sets of hooks, but still support the boobs well enough. To her surprise, this balcony bra gave her enough support, thanks to the thin straps, and perfectly executed cups.
Since it follows the t-shirt bra trend, it blends seamlessly under the clothes, without adding any weight. One of the things I find annoying about certain balcony bras is that they include a lot of padding, which can never be comfortable for plus-size wearers. Contrary to those low-quality models, this balcony bra has a perfect lining which doesn’t require any additional padding.
Seam-free cups make the bra feel smooth and feathery on the skin. You want experience any feeling of tightness or stickiness, thanks to the high-quality material, and impeccable design.
Some of my clients felt that this model runs big in cup size. However, this wasn’t the case with all of them, so it must be a thing of personal preference. Once you find the adequate size, I’m sure you’ll enjoy everything else about it.
How does the bra look?
The Freya t-shirt balcony bra has a rounded shape which mirrors onto the cleavage. It gives your girls an even, uplifted, round look, for an eye-catching décolletage. The cups are molded and silky-feeling, which means that you won’t have to worry about the contour of the bra translating onto the surface of your clothes. It gives vibes of vintage glam, with its subtle, yet feminine details.
Moreover, it is lightweight, effortless, and extremely versatile. The design isn’t over-the-top, which makes it easier for you to combine it with your favorite clothing items.
Another thing that I find extremely appealing with this bra model is that it comes in five color choices. There are the inevitable black and nude, for those of you who don’t like to experiment with color. However, the rest of the collection is a real treat for my daring girls who like a little bit of color in their lingerie collection. You can find this breathtaking balcony bra in pink flambé, sexy racing red, and sultry teal.
Where to wear this bra
You simply can’t go wrong with a t-shirt balcony bra. Incorporating all the factors you’d possibly want in a bra, it is absolutely appropriate for any occasion. Since it is rather supportive, and uplifting at the same time, you can rely on it if you plan on having a wild night on the dance floor, or attending a formal event where you won’t be particularly passive.
Also, I would recommend having this bra among your go-to everyday undergarments, since it is comfortable enough to help you get through another grueling day at work. Also, it won’t draw much attention, since it is a t-shirt bra which has a camouflaging power. Either way you decide to go with it, you can make it work.
Since it is available in bold colors, you can definitely color-coordinate your favorite sexy outfit with it, if you’re ready to step out of your comfort zone.
My bra review
Freya bras have won me over way before I even started my career of working with clients and helping them discover their must-have bras. The quality of these bras is undeniable, and there’s no one who can tell you that these bras aren’t on the top of the bra game.
That being said, I honestly believe that this t-shirt balcony bra is one of the most innovative, versatile bras you’ll find for busty girls. Wearing a plus-size in bras can be a roller coaster, since it can be hard finding the right fit which fulfills all the conditions. However, I assure you that this balcony bra can become a trusty ally of any busty girl out there, struggling to find a perfect connection between style and comfort.
