Didn't fit

This is my first longline ever. I really like the look of it but it's so dang hard to do up! I'm just going to keep messing around with it until I find the best way to do so. I got it in a swap and I think that if I had been actually buying it I would have gotten a 30 back. Luckily for me the 28 is Freya's typical stretchy band and it stretches to 29.5. There are 6(!) hooks and 3 rows of eyes which is very nice. The print extends all the way to the back of the bra which is very nice and all the trimmings are black. It's a nice, soft pattern that's not garish. The band is comfortably snug but flips up a little if I do something like bend over. The wires are a little wider than I need but not bad at all. I'm surprised the gore tacks because it is very wide at an inch. There's some overall wrinkling in the cups and on my right side I can't quite fill the bottom. I get a little quad on my right side too if I stand up straight but other than that it's a near perfect fit. Perfectly spherical and comfy. I think I was built for halfcups! The straps are wide and very long but comfortable with no digging. I get a nice subtle cleavage too. Another grip is the lace at the top won't lay down and I wish the back was a leotard back because I think it would look prettier. It looks a little awkward with the straps attached like they are. I was going to wear it as a crop top for drinks and such with friends but I'm not sure how actually comfortable I'd be with that. Overall, I'm very pleased with this bra. Just gotta figure out the best way to hook it up.

Edit: After wearing it for an hour or so, the band is either too tight or too constricting. I think it's the latter because it stretches to the perfect length. I must put this up for swap because it won't get too much wear from me." alt=":(" />

    Longline bras (or even midi-length which is what this one really is) feel much more constricting than a regular bra due the the width of the band. Although you may be able to stretch it manually, on the body it will fit smaller. Most people actually size up from their regular size. If you love this one you'll want a 30 or possibly even a 32.

  • wendybien Thanks, I didn't even think about that. I assumed it would work because of Freya's penchant for loose bands but it never occurred to me I might have problems with tightness due to the length of the band.

    Yes even with Freya's stretchy materials a 4-5" band will have more "pull" than a regular bra band.
