fortnight has long been a staple for small band/large cup people who are wild bitter about the lack of wireless bras on the market in their size. i picked up this one stealthily on the internet somewhere at a big ol' discount and it lives up to the hype.
QUALITY: smooth. silky. bespoke. luxurious. these are a few words that describe the voice of british actor idris elba, and also this bra. it's the most adult clothing item i own. i feel like i have a salaried job with benefits when i wear this bra (i don't). i would wear it if i were meeting idris elba in ... a casual context, and he would think i looked cool and grown-up.
COMFORT/FIT: a little more relaxed and elastic than the luna and vega models by fortnight. if you're expecting a tacking gore and a totally smooth line across the top of the cup, or to wear it under a structured blouse, you'll be disappointed, but your boobs will also feel like they are being cradled in the web of a sensual spider. probably don't do jumping jacks in it.
APPEARANCE: i like wearing this under a really soft, worn t-shirt or a flowy button-up, around the house. i'm technically an E/F cup, on the larger side of what fortnight bras are designed to handle in terms of volume, but i really love the way it looks. it keeps things just locked down and pushed up enough that you feel comfy and put-together, yet decadently casual.
IDEAL USES: sleepovers, making dinner/chilling around the house, working from home
KEY AESTHETICS: femmed-up tilda swinton, grown-up kiki's delivery service, punk april ludgate, building a found-object sculpture in a loft studio while listening to nina simone on vinyl, urban witchcraft
