I've been keen to try Fortnight for ages cos...well, hasn't everyone?! Gorgeous bralettes that are somewhat elusive due to being Canadian made means it's pretty hard to come by them in the UK. I swapped for this bra cos I thought it'd be a great chance to try for size. When it arrived I was a little disappointed as it wasn't as pretty as I was expecting - pink is never going to be my first choice but the fact the material has a certain shininess to it put me off - reminds me of nasty flesh coloured shiny tights! Plus it looked tiny - I'm ... talking child-size, so straight away I thought it wouldn't fit.
However, it is in fact a great fit. The cups are perfect for me. For a wireless bra I think it's super supportive, It cups and shapes my tissue slightly to give a pleasing natural front cleavage, although as you can see in the side shot it's not going to disguise my FOB tear drop shape, although that's no bad thing.
I wore it at the weekend to lug some boxes around, and actually went out in it today with a thin-ish cotton top over it, and it's definitely the first non-wired bra I would feel comfortable doing that in. I can't say I noticed any more movement/jiggle than I would with a reasonably fitting wired bra - awesome!
I like the length, it really is a proper longline and fits kind of like a crop top would. I do prefer walking in it to sitting/lounging as it does roll up a little if I'm slouched on the sofa.
I feel this is a case of practicality over aesthetics here. The Vega has won me over.
