Pulse is the Reincarnation of the famed Arabella – Freyas big hit from the early 2000’s. It is also a soft plunge, which usually was a big no-no for me ; I had to choose between a cup to deep or a wire that isn’t wide enough. When I got my Pulse in 30F I was really happy since I love neons that make eyes water – but not even those neons could save this disaster.

The colours of Pulse would enamor even the most picky lingerie afficcionado: Sharpie – purple and yellow/lime green that glows in black light are really something else. I really like this color combo more than the previous one, yellow – orange, that for some reason reminded me of Kool-aid and sniff and scratch stickers.
The boobs fill the cups nicely, altough there is a bit of wrinkling due to a rather low setting of the cups. All would be well, but…
… after a whole day with Pulse on me I woke up with a gore so painful that I had trouble taking a deeper breath; I felt like someone punched me in the chest. I decided to let go and, thinking I must have had lain the wrong way in the night, I have worn the bra for another day. After 3 days it was clear to me, that the Pulse and nothing else was the source of the problem. There is nothing wrong during wear, save for some mild stabbing when I bend over, since the wires bend inwards instead of outwards – so I just had to put Pulse away. I hoped that maybe a few washes will help loosen the wire in the channel, but after 2 weeks of washing and trying multiple strap adjustments I gave up. Pity! I can’t really tell or understand what is happening here, but Pulse bothers my gore so much that after wearing it for a few hours and taking it off I am sore and I have trouble to find a bra that wouldn’t worsen the situation (Mimi Holliday nursing bra is a great help).
The band is a standard Freya 30 – I need a few days with an extender to give the band a chance to adjust to my shapes, but after that there are no major problems. If you have a chafing – prone skin you might want to steer clear though, the elastic tends to fold in and scratch.
The bottoms are classic Freya shorties; pictured size S, which is as big as the Deco Small undies. They fit my 89 cm waist and 103 hips very well, as well as the Polish size 40. Very pretty and as see through as the bra.
Unfortunately Pulse won’t be my sexy bra, since I can only wear it for a few minutes in the bedroom before it will be promptly taken off. I will be really happy is somebody will share their nugget of wisdom as for what is happening and if they had such an experience, since I am really disappointed and just sad.
