I only tried this bra on for a few minutes so might have missed some details about the fit. However, from my quick assessment of this bra the wires were surprisingly narrow. Despite the narrow wires the cups were quite shallow and I would say this fits more like a 30F than the 30FF it is supposed to be equivalent to in UK sizing. There wasn't enough depth at the centre gore for me, nor enough immediate projection at the wire. Also this is one of the first bras I've encountered with wings tall enough under the arms to poke a bit, so if you're high set this probably isn't for you. The band was nice and firm for a 30 though being a longline probably helps with it feeling secure.
I probably would have considered buying this if it came in a cup size up - its a very pretty bra and nice longlines in extended sizing are not all too common.
This bra is stunning; I have it in the dark blue (and with the matching panties - wow). It gives a nice round shape for me and creates beautiful lift. It fits 90% of the way - I spill out of the cups a bit in the center, and I have breast that pops up over the sides (under my armpits). Depending on where my hormones are, it fits better (97% of the way to perfect). But I am unsure about the long-wear aspect, as I am short-waisted and longline + sitting down = bad news, I think. Wearing it so that it can be admired and then removed might be about all I can manage!
I'm so happy to finally have this bra again! I had it before in a 32F which was too small and ever since I've been searching for a 32G in black. I finally found it online from Kohl's--protip, if you go shopping there for clothes you can get Kohl's cash and use it online for a bra!
It's wider and shallower than the bras I usually wear and distributes the breast tissue differently. It's more minimized (held closer to the chest) than I prefer, but the appearance makes up for that to me. This is the perfect longline for me and since it's padded I don't feel exposed or ...awkward wearing it as part of an outfit, under a sheer top or an open button-down.
However, it's not just uncomfortable, it's painful. I took it off after a few minutes because I was being poked by boning, the side of the cup and the straps were rubbing on me because the cup is too wide, ugh. This bra is SO PRETTY that I WILL wear it out of sheer determination... just not to anything that's very long. Read more 79 more words
So I wanted this bra sooooo bad but Bendon (their parent company)'s site doesn't ship to US. Finally I saw it on eBay, and it wasn't exactly my ideal size, but it was a sister size so I decided to snag it. Just my luck, right after I finally found it they rereleased it for the new season haha. But the new color is purple and I like the black much better. Putting it on, I think actually the 30 wouldn't have worked, it would have been too tight at the bottom. I can feel the side boning poking me a little bit at the bottom but hopefully it'll ease up a little. I had thought the top of the cup was sheer but it actually has a nude underlay, the whole cup is padded. The detail is really lovely on it. It's not like it does much for me or gives any kind of amazing shape but this is definitely one I'll wear under sheer shirts and stuff.
This is a lovely bra, the first longline that I find easy to hook up! The cups are lined four part cups and give a slightly east/west appearance, I do wish they had an internal sling for support as this is not my favorite look. The band does not ride up or roll, but as is the case in all longlines I fear they will warp with wear, though they are stronger than the ones used by Parfait/Adore Me. The straps are currently pinned to length as they do not adjust short enough for me, I will sew them eventually, and I wish they were thicker as thin straps tend to dig in a bit. The lace and mesh fabric is lovely and comfortable to wear.
