    Didn't fit

    Phew. Can't remember the last time I tried so hard to buy a new bra style.

    I adore this bra. I think the colour is wonderful, the shape is flattering and the longline makes me feel like I could wear this around the house all weekend with a singlet and be 21 again.

    Unfortunately I don't think it suits my shape AND it's actually quite hard to get on.

    I bought a size 30GG - my usual Cleo/Panache size these days - to try first off. Unfortunately it dug right into my breast tissue and gave me a noticeable bulge above the bra edge. Otherwise the bra was pretty good ... - a bit loose around the back about half way down the hooks though. Other than the digging into the breast tissue, it looked good on and I was tempted to keep it.

    I knew I would be tugging at the top of the cup all day if I kept the 30GG trying to get it smooth, so I send the 30GG back and tried the 30H. I have never ever worn a size H cup before, but I knew that the 30 band was only just tight enough and I wouldn't want to go up to a 32 band to stay in the same cup size.

    This is the 30H that I've photographed on me here. It still digs into my breast tissue towards the centre gore and the straps are now really uncomfortably wide and the underwires are way too wide. I wonder if the 30GG was also too wide and I wasn't settling into the bottom of the cups either. Maybe that's why I'm inching out the top of the cups.

    Either way, wrong shape for me. Sorry Piper!

    Congratulations to everyone who suits this style - it's gorgeous.

    (ps. Also, I usually but a bra on by putting the cups against my belly - face down - and then reach around and clip the hooks and eyes together with my hands, then flip the bra over and up onto my breasts... that was very difficult to do in a longline where it has corsetting for inches down the sides in addition to the underwires. I wonder if I owned this how many days I would think TOO HARD and wear a different bra after all)

      oh dear what a bummer. Well, if it's any consolation, I don't think I have seen any (maybe 1?!) medium or full bust size range folks who have managed to get a fit in this. It seems to be a lovely fit on smaller cup people who overall are more likely to have a nice straightish slope to the upper boob that matches the Piper's construction, but on anyone bigger than E or so, it's been mostly a fail.

    • Thank you for your struggles, as I was just eying this bra at Figleaves. You happen to also be in the neighborhood of my size and shape, so now I know it wouldn't be worth it to order this. I've had such bad luck with longline cups not being deep enough to accommodate my FOB breasts, but I love the look of longlines.

    • I love the Piper bra! When I saw the first picture I was thrilled because it looks like a great fit. However, then I saw the second picture. Even in my very small size the Piper bra digs in! (30D - Freya » Piper Longline (1233) These bras are definitely not for wide breasts.

    • wendybien I own it in 30F (need it in 28FF) and it's a very good fit on me. I think it's definitely suited for very very short roots or a vFOB shape.

    • ShaniSunAZ the Cleo Piper and Freya Piper are two different bras. They're both longlines, but the Freya is a padded halfcup and the Cleo is an unlined balconnet, so the fit will not necessarily be comparable. In this case, the bulging is caused by the cups being too short/closed off.
