My oh my. These are some very wide cups. I don't think I've experienced this sensation since I wore my old three-sizes-too-big Curvy Kate Emily.
It's a very pretty bra. The Jade colourway is a lovely antique green with black vines and florals swirling across the three-part cups. There's wavy black lace on the top of the cups and bottom of the band, on the centre gore is a bow with another bow on top with little teardrop crystals hanging on the ribbons, and even the back closure has some nice detailing. The straps have a little bit of decoration, but honestly I wish there were more.
The gore doesn't ... lie flat, probably because of the wide gore and maybe also the wires. Since it's a longline, it's still rather supportive, and my boobs aren't attempting a jailbreak. The fabrics are soft and comfortable.
The quality feels a lot better than sister brand Freya's longlines. I've read that the lace at the bottom of the band flips up on some, but on me it doesn't, or at least it doesn't feel/look as bad as it does in my Freyas (which usually have the band sneaking up in between the wires and my IMF - it's a weird feeling)
I went up a size in this as it stops at a G cup and I've always wanted a 30GG in these styles. The band feels good, not too tight (important in longlines as it compresses a larger area of your ribcage and therefore your lungs), but it still stays put. The cups, as I mentioned, have sufficient volume, but are too wide. Why is it so hard for designers to make half cups for projected and narrow boobs?
One thing that's worth mentioning is the lack of more than 2 colums of eyes. I noticed there are 4, 5 and even 6 hook extenders cheap on Ebay, which I will be buying and adding to it.
