Freya Sports Bras Review

This is quite simply a Freya Sports Bras Review. When searching for the best exercise bras for big breasts it soon becomes obvious that the Freya Active range provide some of the best sports bras for big busts available on the market.

Not only do they provide an extensive range but you know Freya is a name you can trust for quality and accomodating genuinely big boobs properly. Importantly they also start at a 28 back size so will appeal to the many very slim but big boobed ladies amongst us.

The other great thing is that they have a number of styles and offer you choice, as you will see as I go through the variations.

When you first look at the range you may be a bit confused by all the variations but the simplest distinction is the height of the front coverage. As you can see, the sports bra is a more traditional shape, whereas the crop top has greater coverage.

I will start by looking at the Freya Sports bras.

Freya Sports Bras Review

There are 3 principal choices:

  1. underwired
  2. underwired and moulded or 
  3. soft cups 

Below left you will see the underwired version. Note the supportive seam across the front of the cups.

By contrast the moulded version, above right, simply has the underwiring but the cup is on seamless moulded structure. This may seem (sorry for the awful pun) a small difference but the there are two issues.

Firstly you may not want a seam as you may feel it spoils your look, or you simply might not consider that important. The main difference is the feel and I can only say that this is purely personal and can only be properly ascertained by trying them on to feel the difference. There are support and comfort issues that will vary greatly depending on your attitude and the shape of your breasts.

The Freya Active Underwired Sports Bra

First and foremost, it goes up to a K cup! Whoopee

Okay, first up the underwired Freya Sports Bra. There are a choice of 6 colours: black, white (above), nude, charcoal grey with yellow trim (see above 'underwired'), jet (black with turqoise trim) or scarlet red (above). The sizes are 28D - 38G, 30-38D to 30-36K, 38D-JJ. Again you may find other colour variations of discontinued lines or possibly new arrivals.

The Active Moulded Exercise Bra

As you would expect the moulded freya sports bra has an inner sling and breathable material, mesh panels and wide curvature wire. The coverage is described as medium as the wiring comes up quite high but you can still get a little boobage appearing at the top.

The sizes are 28D-28GG, 30D-30H, 32-36B - 32-36H, 38B-38GG and 40B-G. Not the biggest cup sizes but respectable enough. The colours are the zinc and hot crimson above plus Storm (black), nude (pink) and the Atomic blue with yellow trim (at the top of the page).

The actual recommended retail price is a steep £38, but you should be able to find it for a lot less and maybe bag yourself a bargain.

The Soft Cup Freya Exercise Bra

As there is no underwiring, the support for the soft cup Freya exercise bra comes from the multiple use of panels which I have tried to highlight (admittedly very poorly) and an inner sling which extends to the shoulder strap. Plus coolmax fabric, mesh panels, v shaped insert for maximum separation, high coverage and adjustable rear fastening and shoulder straps.

The sizes like the other variations are respectable but only extend to an H cup. Starting at 28-30D, 32-38C and 40D. again it is good that it starts at a 28 back size but only extends up to a 40 band size.

There are 6 colours: black (above), white, nude, red / crimson with black trim, charcoal with yellow trim and jet black with turqoise trim (shown).

The Freya Moulded Sports Crop Top

The final part of this Freya sports bras review relates to the crop top which has become very popular, very quickly. As demonstrated at the top of the page, this is a high coverage variation.

Forgive me if the product colours change but Freya do seem to like introducing new lines.

The Freya folks worked with the foremost researcher on the whole issue of breast movement, Dr. Joanna Scurr at Portsmouth University and came up with a big reduction in independent breast movement, pain and strain.

There is a good selection of colours: Electric black with blue trim, indigo blue with yellow trim (see top of the page), zinc print (above) and pink glow (shown). The sizes run 28-32D-H, 34-36B-H, 38B-GG and 40B-G.

Please note there are matching (below the knee) capri pants, shown in the right hand column.

Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan

What is a J Clip?

What is a J clip?

A lot of manufacturers refer to a mysterious J clip, so what is a J clip? Simple, a clip to change the normal strap configuration to a racer back.

The huge advantage of this is that you will find that there is far less likelihood of those pesky straps slipping off your shoulders during high impact activity.

As you can see, you can set it at a height to suit yourself for comfort.

Performance Wear

Freya capri sports pants

These capri pants come in XS, S, M, L and XL. The material is the same lightweight, stretchy material with the wick away quality as the bras. The choice is either the zinc print to match the crop top or plain black, which goes withe anything.

There is also a sports top with racer back in black or red. The sizes are 30-38D-H.

You can sometimes find the sports shorts too, although I find they are not so readily available.
