This is not a longline, which I knew purchasing it but I still think it's weird that it's called that.
This is by far the best bathing suit top I've ever owned. It fits perfectly. The cups are similar in padding and style to the Deco Charm, but a bit lower cut and therefore provide better cleavage, and don't have that irritating empty space up top like some Decos.
Even in my Vibe and Charm, I have a small bit of empty space.
If you're super FoT, you may want to consider sizing up in this.
FoB with tall roots, or even should work really well in these cups.
The back is ... a plastic snap close. Idk the actual term for it.
The back band, in this size, does not look like the stock photo. It's a lot thinner, which, I'm fine with.
I bought this off eBay, so I knew what I was getting and I'm absolutely super happy with it, I'm just including that in case this is available anywhere else and a stock photo is all that's available.
The cups in this are very centered, with close (just touching and then splayed) center wires.
The wire width, I will measure later, but I'm guessing somewhere around 4.8-5". Perfect for me.
The cup depth is just enough. Any less and I'd be quadding; any more and I would feel a little unsure about wearing this as a bathing suit.
Speaking of which, I wish this was a bra. Can someone just copy the design and make it without all the swim material, pleeeaase? It's great. The design, padding, and structure is like a hybrid Deco and Comexim Basic. Deco roundness and padding, Comexim wires and cup structure. Perfect for swim.
I'd recommend this for anyone who needs narrow wires and somewhat projected cups. It works with my roots because it's similar to a demi. The halter aspect and demi design combined make this so it gives nice cleavage. Not bombshell sexy, pushup, bedroom cleavage, but just enough for a swim top.
The band is firm and I'd say TTS. I did buy this used, so I can't validate whether or not it comes that way out of packing.
Having tried this and realizing how similar it is to the Deco, I'm kind of really wishing Freya would make a half cup Deco(without it being wide!). That would actually work for me. xD
Coloring and pattern is nice. Not my favorite, but I don't dislike it. I think I'm kinda more into greens, purples and pinks this year. And blues, always. So those colors are in this, but the orange and black are what stand out to me.
Super happy to have found this. No more crazy VS bikinis for me.https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The last one I had was over $50 and the colors faded- in a salt pool. And the cups are always too far apart and sit on my boobs in the middle. I wish I could take their fabrics(at least the ones I have that didn't fade)and put them on a bikini like this. In the meantime, this suits me so much better so whatever about my picky fabric tastes.
If there's anything I could really do without, it's the short, bulky center bow. It's too short to tie in any way that doesn't look like a bow-tie, and it covers all the awesomeness going on in front because of the bulk.
I guess maybe that was intentional, but I just find it annoying.
Other than that, I'd give this abkut 9/10.
