Used to fit
I bought this bra because I have a thing for little buttons instead of bows! Normally I wouldn't have gone for the longline, but I'm not overly fond of the colours in the other versions. I'm all for more tartan bras, but the pink is not my thing. A stripey blue pattern, I am much more into.
Despite the longline aspect needing some getting used to this bra is actually really comfy, while being tight enough on it's loosest set of hooks! So far I've only worn it for an evening at home test-run, but my first impressions are great.
The bad part is, I'm FOB and projected. I fill out the bottom part of the bra better than a lot of other bras, but I'd say there's still not quite enough immediate projection for me. And of course my other near-constant problem also reared it's ugly head-- the gaping in the top part. When I swoop and scoop, it moulds my boobs into a sort of peculiar shape, and then once they've settled for a bit the gaping starts. It is sadly pretty clear the shape of my boobs is at war with the shape of this bra.
Update 16 Oct 14
Tissue migration, maybe weight gain. I fill out the top of the cup now! It's not the best fit-- with narrower wires and more forward projection it would be perfect, but it achieves the affect of squishing my breast tissue into the shape it wants in a pretty comfy way, all things considered. Really happy to say this bra works for me now, even if it's not ideal.
Also, for some reason I didn't mention this in my original review (but it has been a thing since the beginning), but I want to echo every one else who said the part of the band under the cups bunches up. Considering my options to add some firmness to the fabric there.
