A UK 8/10 is equivalent to an XS with Freya. If you were to go up a size to a small this would be equivalent to a UK 10/12.
A half cup style or moulded bra can help with the fitting issue you have.We love our Eden, Fifi and Rapture ranges. All offer a half cup option or if you prefer a little more coverage The Eden and Fifi also have a balcony style within the range.
I'm sorry to hear you have such issues with your bras.
It is very difficult to tell your true size from measurements because they are found to be around 70% incorrect. We would always recommend a professional fitting at your local Freya stockist to ensure you are wearing the correct size and style for your bust shape. If this really isn't possible please see our fitting video here to demonstrate how your bra should fit along with a sizing guide and a guide to what bust shape you have and styles to suit.
The primary support in your bra should come from the back band not the straps so the issues you have with your shoulders does suggest your back size is incorrect. The alternate size to 32GG is 30H. Perhaps this is a good place to start for you with sizing. A half cup style or moulded bra can help with the fitting issue you have.
We love our Eden, Fifi and Rapture ranges. All offer a half cup option or if you prefer a little more coverage The Eden and Fifi also have a balcony style within the range.
Everything you mention suggests your are wearing the incorrect size, not just in the back size but perhaps in the cup as well. Have you been fitted in the last 6 months? You would definitely benefit from a fitting at your local Freya stockist who can advise on styles of bra for your bust shape as well as size.
If you are having trouble with different brands fitting correctly it could be the style of bra you are trying that doesn't fit you well rather than the size of it. It is best to fitted at your local stockist if you are trying another brand just to be sure.
Elomi is one of our sister brands and definitely recommended for back sizes up to 44.
It sounds like you will benefit from a fitting at your local stockist. Fitting consultants can advise on style of bra for your bust shape as well as size.
Alternatively we love the Ignite plunge balcony bra. It gives great cleavage with no push up and fantastic shape. If you prefer sheer cups the Siren would be perfect.
We love the Rapture range. A beautiful side support plunge bra featuring a flattering low centre front and a side support seam in the cups for fantastic forward projection and cleavage!
Also our Marvel side panel bra offers an amazing fit, the vertical seam and new side panel give you a fabulous shape.
Different styles of bra can fit differently so you may find in a moulded bra you will wear a different size to a balcony. Visit your nearest Freya Stockist and one of our fitting consultants can advise on size and the best style for your bust shape.
Your daughters back and breast pain does point to an incorrectly fitting bra, possibly the sizing but also style of bra can have an affect. If she feels comfortable in a 32F with Freya and it fits well providing enough support for her then do stick with this as all of our ranges are made to the same sizing guide. Please see here for our advice section and a fitting video to show how a bra should fit.
A 30FF size is the equivalent of a 32F so depending on the style of bra you may find she fits both sizes.
For sleeping she may find a soft cup bra more comfortable. We love the Deco soft cup. All the support of our popular deco range without the underwire.
If the bikini top you are looking at is a padded version it will say in the header, for example the Spirit Range has a padded option here. This padding is at most 3mm thick. It is not designed to increase the size of your bust but to ensure that the top is not transparent and to give smooth definition.
We love the Bondi Vibe range. Bold block colours and a flattering fit that offer a bandeau bikini top, sweetheart bikini top and a high waist brief to match.
Once you’ve discovered your size, you need to find the style to suit your shape & flatter your figure. Uncover our hints & tips to help you choose the right bra.
