Why I recommend this bra

This is a bra that every woman should consider to own. It is very comfortable, especially for those women who have small rib cage and larger cups. I know as for experience that most bras for busty women usually spread the breasts apart and that makes large women look even larger and wider. We all want to avoid this and that’s why Freya Rio Balcony is a great bra, because it avoids this effect.

When wearing a Freya Rio Balcony bra you will feel an amazing support, plus your boobs will point forward and not to the sides. Also, this model in particular has great separation in the middle. This is a very comfortable bra that’s also very pretty, the fabric is really soft and you won’t have to deal with constantly riding it up or down.

Another thing I like about Freya Rio Balcony bra is its quality. As every Freya bra, this one is made of a very nice fabric and the structure is amazing. If you take care of your bra appropriately, then this one should last for years, even if wearing it everyday. Remember, hand wash your bra with cold water, use soft detergents, and NEVER EVER put it on the dryer.

All about the bra

The Freya Rio Balcony bra is made of a very beautiful fabric. However, some reviews have complained that they can be seen under certain types of blouses. So, if you’re looking for a seamless bra, maybe this is not the best option. That said, this bra is still very pretty and I love the breathable sensation due to the type of fabric it’s made of.

This Freya model has a multi-part underwire for extra support, it’s full cup, and it provides full coverage to the girls. The cups are non-stretch, so this guarantees even more support. It also have side panels that bring your boobs together on the front and will keep them there. I definitely love how this bra shapes my boobs and where it places them.

Also, this bra has wide straps for extra support. They are pretty comfortable since they don’t dig on your shoulders. You can adjust them, just as you can adjust the band on the back, which has 2 hooks and 3 columns. The fabric is a mixture between nylon and Lycra spandex, so this bra will probably fit your body very well. It won’t go too loose nor too tight. It’s a great bra to be worn with almost any type of outfit that doesn’t demand too much cleavage.

How does the bra fit?

This bra has a great fitting. First, the sizes come in UK system, so use the conversion chart for you to find out which is the correct size for you. Once you have chosen the right size, you will love how this bra adapts to your back and your boobs. It does not push the breasts off the torso, but it gives them a natural and round shape. It has no padding and it gives your body an edgy look.

If you need lifting, then this bra is great for you. It lifts and separate your breasts, avoiding that “uniboob” look and giving them a more natural one. Also, you won’t have to fight the straps, they will stay in place and won’t slip off your shoulders.

Is the bra comfortable?

This is a very comfortable bra. Lots of large women (large breasts and large figure) have said that this is the most comfortable bra that they have ever worn in their lives. I have to agree with them. This is definitely on my top-5 most comfortable bras in the market for busty women. Plus, the fabric provides a breathable sensation, so this is a great bra for Summer or hot weathers.

Freya Rio Balcony bra’s underwire gives lots of support which is actually something my back appreciates everyday. Doesn’t matter how long you have been wearing this bra, it will feel very comfortable all day long. If you’re worried about the underwire cutting in to your underarm side, then this is a great bra for you since the Freya Rio Balcony bra will not even get close to that area of your body. This bra won’t leave marks on your body and the fabric feels really nice. It’s soft and perfect for sensitive skin.

How does the bra look?

Freya Rio Balcony is a very beautiful bra. Even though the fabric may show under certain clothes, I wouldn’t change it for any other because it’s so pretty! It has a cute squared pattern that makes it stand out from other balcony bras. This model comes in three different colors: black, nude, and white. The three of them look very cute, but I would like Freya to do them on many other colors since the fabric is so beautiful. It has some “holes” at the outer part of the cups, which I think look pretty cute. It is a very classy and casual bra to be worn to almost any occasion, you just need to be careful with see-through clothing.

Where to wear this bra

The Freya Rio Balcony bra is a very versatile bra that can be worn to almost anywhere. I specially recommend this bra to be worn on date night, when going out with friends, or having a night with a special someone. Why? Because it’s a balcony bra with a low cut and a bit less coverage than usual that will allow you to wear cleavage. So, if you’re wearing a more exposing blouse, this model will meet your needs. Plus, it’s very comfortable if you’re going out with a formal outfit.

However, this bra can also be worn as an everyday bra. You can use it to go to work or run errands, since it’s so comfortable and offers so much support. This is a bra that will let you move more freely and natural than any other bra and it will keep the girls on place. So, your breasts won’t limit nor make you feel uncomfortable during working hours.

My bra review

The Freya Rio Balcony bra is a very nice bra that will make you feel as much support as you can feel, while being completely comfortable, cute, and also of a very high quality. This is a bra that can last for years if you take proper care. I think this is one of my favorite pieces of lingerie from Freya, since it’s so versatile. I have worn this one to almost anywhere. Your money won’t be a waste if you buy one of this!
