I was meant to have this review up a few days after I put up the teaser but two weeks have gone past! When did that happen? Ok so I wore the Tropics Bra by Freya for a week and loved it.
The red colour is really cheery in the morning especially now during Winter in Australia. That bluey/purpley fluorescent colour in the cups is my favourite. I don't know why but I love it. Maybe because it's so vibrant and unexpected.
I also love the deep pink bows they are so cute.
The plunge style worked a treat when I was wearing a lower cut sweater. It gave a nice shape and no bra peeking over the sides.
The straps are comfy though I much prefer them to be thinner. Thick straps like this are never attractive no matter how colourful the print.
I got this bra in a larger cup size because I am finding the cup sizes are getting a bit snug and not covering and supporting my boobs as they should. Doing this I found I had a bit more room in the cups but my boobs were still covered and supported. Especially good during that time of the month when you need extra support and coverage.
The sheer material along the top of the cups and the scalloped edge are really pretty. I had no bulge and the bra fit just right.
The material on the bottom part of the cups at first felt slightly plasticey but as I wore it more it softened. I am sure after a wash and wear it will soften more. It was never uncomfortable just an observation I made.

The only thing that bothered me a bit was the elastic around the wings at the back of the bra along the top and bottom. I felt like they were a bit tight but as I continued to wear it they got a bit more comfy. I am sure after a wash and another wear it will be comfier still.
All in all I really like this bra. It's comfy, pretty and supportive. I highly recommend. It is a great buy.
Available in sizes 28DD - 38H. (AUS6DD - 16H)
