    I really really,really wanted to love this bra. But I can't. I like it a lot, but as the other reviewers/owners mentioned, the cups feel really wide. In actuality the wires are narrow. I'd say the wires literally stretch an inch when worn-- measures 4.5 inches (which is too narrow for me), but leaves marks behind my tissue, around the 5.5 inch range.

    See my post for more on how this fits someone with tall roots

      Ugh, seems like Freya's wires are either too stabby or too flexible :/ Thanks for the thorough review, gave me a very good impression about the bra!

      Such a cute design but such a disappointing fit. I guess we all have a pretty good idea, with your review to confirm it, about this bra's fit flaws. Hope Freya fixes them!

      I see you tried replacing the wires with harder ones but they were TOO hard; maybe try with other wires to try to get in the middle?! I feel like a sister size up would stretch out too quickly, and the straps would be even wider. Such a bummer! :/

      Btw, I'm so grateful for your reviews, you happen to review all the bras I'm interested in and we're similar in size. :)

    Very cute and comfy! Emerald color is lovely.
    Lace is quite soft and stretchy, which helps with comfy-ness but makes it not seem as "fancy" if that matters.
    I am very projected and full on the bottom with a short root. This bra fit great except the wires were just way too wide for me and there was not quite enough immediate projection at the bottom. Still one of my better non-Polish fits.
    Stretchy Freya band so I had to sister size down a band as usual.

    Honestly, I did not expect the Freya Fancies Longline to fit at all, but I decided to just try it in the name of all things Fancies, and I found it for super cheap on Amazon. Surprisingly, it fits really well, and it looks great! Too bad I’m not a longline fan, or I might find myself wearing these all the time.

    The Fancies Longline seems to have the same upper cup as the Fancies Padded Half Cup, which I tried in 30DD but wasn’t sure of the cup fit due to the overly large band. Unfortunately I can’t directly compare the two because sister sizing slightly ... changes the cup proportions, but they do seem to be quite similar. However, while I found the Padded HC’s cups to be a little bit “off” on me, these are spot on. So far, the 4 piece padded cup has been a decent shape for me as long as the wires are flexible. Everything on the cup fits me well, and the wires are comfortable on me as they aren’t super stiff like the ones I’ve encountered on some other Freyas.

    The cup is a very rounded version of the 4 piece cup, and I found that this gave me a really great rounded shape. The upper cup is neither too projected nor too shallow, and it doesn’t cut into my tall roots at all. Based on this I think it would definitely be suitable for even shapes with wider roots, and it can definitely work with tall roots. As these HCs tend to run wide, I don’t think it would be suitable for narrow roots.

    The entire bra is made from the new, softer Fancies lace, the same quality used on the Padded HC and on the newer Fancies Plunge. The cradle and band are double lined with power mesh for a firm feel. The back has two rows of 5 hooks, and I think this is a miss as 3-4 rows of hooks would’ve been better. The band fits quite snugly and firmly on me, so I would say it is definitely TTS, though there isn’t much flexibility on the fit. Straps are the standard plain wide elastic found on the Fancies Plunge, which is so much better than the narrower quality used on the Padded HC. The center gore is trimmed with the same micro-dot ribbon bow as found on the other styles.

    This style really fits me perfectly, but the reason I’m not running to stock up on this style in multiple colors is due to comfort. I just plain hate the feel of longlines, though I can appreciate the look. First, any bra that requires assistance to put on sounds like an insane proposition to me. I have very sensitive skin, and the only way to get this thing on is to hook it in the front and turn the bra around. I find the feeling of this action on my skin to be unbearable. I think this bra should’ve been designed with a side closure for easier accessibility.

    Second, though the band is a perfect fit, I get very uncomfortable with compression on my ribcage as it triggers a feeling of panic, like I am going to suffocate. This isn’t a problem in normal snug bra bands, but the additional pressure on my lower ribcage is extremely uncomfortable.

    Despite these two issues, I do have a few corsets, longlines, and basques in my collection. While I wouldn’t wear them regularly, they are nice to have around. I really like the fit of this bra and wish they would just chop it off at the bottom to make a normal bra version with a wider, firmer band! Sadly, the similar-looking Padded HC is much less supportive than this style due to the narrow straps and single layer powermesh band, and also doesn’t come in the same size range as this. I find myself coming back to Freya time and time again as so few other brands now produce styles in 28E. While the brand can be hit or miss, I’m very pleased this fits!

      Congratulation for a good fit! I have had one of this in white, but it was too shallow for me, especially at the cup top.
