Brand

The Freya company launched in the UK by the Eveden Group in 1998. Their focus is to make excellent quality bra's and swimsuits for well-endowed women up to a K cup. They also specialize in sports bras for women up to an H cup.

Freya has a simple mission. They strive to give you a fantastic fitting and beautiful piece of lingerie. Every woman deserves to look and feel her best, and they want to be there to help you along the way.

Comfort

Comfort is essential to your overall happiness. You want to make sure that all of your clothing keeps you as comfortable as possible, including your bra. It can distract you during your workouts if you're constantly distracted by the way your bra feels. Most women find the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra comfortable, but not all women share that experience.

The most significant contributor to the comfort level of the bra is the way it fits. If you aren't getting the correct fit, then you aren't going to be comfortable at all. Most of the complaints about the comfort of the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra comes from customers getting the incorrect size.

There are a handful of women who weren't comfortable with the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra in general. Yes, a sports bra will typically squish your boobs down and hold them firmly in place. After all, you don't want them bouncing all over the place. However, some customers stated that this one did that a little too well. It tends to push your breasts towards your armpits, which in turn impedes on your range of movement, hindering your workout and causing discomfort. This isn't a problem for all women, but it's something worth noting.

Another complaint that comes from a handful of customers is that it rubs along your skin. After wearing it throughout the day it can rub and cause irritation. Most women experience this under their arms around their back. The band will irritate the skin, causing discomfort. Again, this isn't something everyone experiences.

Support

The primary purpose of wearing a bra is to get some much-needed support. You need a little something extra to help lift you up and prevent discomfort and pain. The Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra can give you that support that you need.

The Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra is considered a high-performance sports bra, meaning that you are covered no matter what activity you are participating in. The more active you are, the more support you will need, and this sports bra can handle almost anything.

From running to jumping, the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra will help keep your breasts snuggly in place. No need to have them bouncing and flopping around with you while you're working out.

The bra is double lined and features adjustable shoulder straps to help give you optimal support. Finally, the seamless underwire gives you a little extra boost give you some relief when hitting the gym.

Materials

The Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra is made out of a blend of 69% polyester, 28% nylon, and 3% elastane. The mix of materials ensures that it is going to stay intact, no need to worry about it quickly ripping or tearing.

The materials ensure that the sports bra will keep you dry and cool while you're out and about. It is breathable, thanks to the mesh panels so that you can stay cozy, even during the toughest of workouts.

You're also going to stay relatively dry while you're going hard. Polyester is hydrophobic, meaning that it isn't going to absorb the moisture from your sweat easily. What little bit does get soaked up into the bra will evaporate quickly, as the polyester will not retain the water.

The bra has a bit of a stretch to it, which is common among sports bras. You want that little stretch to give you a betting fit and optimal support.

Breathability

It is essential that your workout gear be breathable. You want to make sure you can get air flowing and circulating through your active apparel so you can try to stay as cool and dry as possible. This also goes for your sports bra. You need ventilation to prevent overheating and discomfort.

Thankfully, the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra has some built-in mesh panels to ensure a decent amount of air flow. Not only can air flow to your skin thanks to these panels, but the material itself will allow for some ventilation.

It's not as breathable as a cotton sports bra would be, but that is OK. The Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra will not soak up all of your sweat like a cotton bra would. Instead, thanks to the polyester materials, it will prevent most of the absorptions. What does get sopped up will dry quickly, so you aren't going throughout your day in a damp sports bra.

Between the fast drying and ventilated materials, the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra will do a decent job at keeping you cool and dry.

Versatility

As mentioned above, the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra is a high impact bra, which means that there is almost nothing that you can't do while wearing it. The bra will give you the support that you need for your whole workout.

Whether you're heading out for a marathon or you're going out for a long bike ride, you will be good to go. Some women prefer to wear it for their aerobics classes, such as Zumba or CrossFit. Whatever it is that you are going, you will not have to worry about your ladies bouncing around everywhere, causing you discomfort, or even pain.

Of course, you can wear the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra for more than just your fitness routines. Some women choose to wear it on their lazy days, lounging around the house.

Care

It's essential to make sure you are taking care of your bra correctly, to make sure it's going to last you a while. If you aren't washing it and caring for it, it will not last you as long as you would hope.

When you're wearing your bra to the gym or for your workouts, it's going to get sweaty and eventually start to smell. To prevent this from happening, you want to wash it frequently.

The Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra, unfortunately, is not machine washable. It will not hold up if you throw it in the wash and will speed up with wear and tear process. Instead, the bra should be hand washed in cold water and hung to dry. It can be a bit of a hassle to clean it this way, but it is not uncommon for lingerie to have to be hand-washed.

One great feature the Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra has to offer is that it does have antibacterial technology integrated into the materials to help prevent stinky odors. That doesn't mean that you don't have to keep your bra clean, but you can get away with skipping a wash if you have to.

Style

Fit
