It is finally here! The new Freya sports bra: the High Octane. We love everything about this bra, the name, the styling, the support, the price. It is without doubt Freya Active’s best sports bra to date.
This new Freya sports bra really is high octane is every respect. Just look at her!
The first new Freya sports bra for sometime, they have clearly listened to the feedback wearers of the previous underwired sports bra (Sonic) and we feel this is a considerable upgrade.
New Freya sports bra features
The design of the bra fulfills all the criteria that have been found to contribute most to breast support by University of Portsmouth– fully adjustable straps, high neckline, encapsulation of the breasts and moulded cups.
This new Freya sports bra is underwired, which some women are not keen on in a sports bra. However, we urge you to overcome your scepticism and try it!
The underwires are encased in silicone padding, so all you will feel from them is the added shaping and support they give.
The cups are seam free, moulded and breathable, giving great lift and a forward facing shape without the dreaded monoboob.
If you really can’t get over the underwire thing, but love a Freya bra- check out the Dynamic. Available in gorgeous denim blue or black with leopard trim. Also rated Power 4 for support.
It gives similar shaping and support to the High Octane, but is a lighter bra. Non-moulded, non-wired and giving more support through breast compression. Stand by for a monoboob.
How does it fit?
The back band is a little on the generous side- just like the Freya Dynamic, (her non-wired sister bra). If you are on the tightest hooks on your bras you may want to think about going down a back size in the High Octane.
The cups seem to fit pretty true to size. If you do go down a back size, be sure to go up a cup size at the same time- for instance, I am usually a 32E, but 30F is my size in this bra.
Don’t forget Freya use the FF cup size- equivalent to G in other brands.
It is not all about looks…
We have classed this new Freya sports bra as a KnockerLocker Power 4 extreme impact bra- designed to support our DD+ ladies through the toughest of workouts.
As an E cup I am happy running in this bra and throwing some burpees round the crossfit gym. No one is getting a black eye when I am wearing the High Octane.
Aside from giving amazing support this new Freya sports bra is built for comfort- soft fold over elastic on neck edge and underarms means no rise of chafing or digging in.
The outer fabric is super breathable for cool comfort. The hook and eye panel is softly padded as are the wide shoulder straps.
The J-hook fastening that is featured on the Freya Active Dynamic makes a comeback by popular demand.
This easy clip allows racer back option, that many women love the secure feeling of. No more wrestling out of your bra at the end of your workout or having to ask your BFF to help!
Go on, unleash your wild side with this new Freya sports bra- high octane all the way!
