This was my first long line bra. I'd debated of whether to try one; I have a short torso (very little space between the bottom of my rib cage and the top of my hip bones) and I worried it would be too long on me. Luckily my torso length (or lack of length https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />) is not an issue.
The cups fit true to size for a 32FF. The cups are closed on top but do not cause any cutting in or quad-booming (I have even fullness). The wires do come up a bit too high into my armpit for my liking (for this reason, Bratabase flagged this bra as a non-fitting one for me) but it isn't painful.
The band fits snug like a typical Cleo. It feels a bit too tight right now -- probably due to the additional length -- but I know once I break it in a bit it'll be perfect. Getting the bra on was a challenge for me - took me a while on my own. When I sit I do find the band rolled up a bit but it wasn't visible under clothing; I was able to swiftly pop it back into place with my thumb once I stood up.
Now onto the color! The online pictures do not do the color justice! It is a rich, vibrant cobalt blue - more vibrant in person. I think this shade will look gorgeous on many different skin tones.
If you're on the fence about this bra, my vote is to try it! You might be surprised.
