*Ok there's some 'golden oldies' in my bra collection - bras I was truly obsessed with, have hunted down like crazy and even if I don't wear them often, they are doomed to be mine.. Forever! XD*
Second of them is this Flourish longline: for me this was an instant 'OMG-must-have'.
Really really love the bright tropical print https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> Stalked it untill it was on a discount. When I bought this (over a year ago?) it fit a bit better, I've gained some boobage since then. So now it's technically too small, but I still love it.
About the fit: ideally I would get this ... in 30GG/H - but it only goes up to G. So I had to get a 32 and unsurprisingly, the band is a bit large. Guess I would consider this bra true to size. As with all Freya padded halfcups, this is a wider and shallower style. Wires are a tad wide but since the cup is so snug / overfilled, it seems like the wires still encase my breast tissue. My main issue however is how the band flips up. Same as with my 32G - Fauve » Bronte Padded Longline Bra (0331) . Aesthetically I adore longlines, but for long days of wear they don't work great on me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Looks wise, I'm somewhat disappointed with the back band: it is completely unembellished, boring black mesh - what a shame on such a gorgeous bra! They could've at least added a panel of the floral fabric?
Also the cut of the back + set of the straps are kind of strange, and not very flattering for back/shoulder chub.
On a more recent clone, Freya Pansy Padded Longline Bra (1683) , they've committed the same crime - shame on you Freya! Pansy is still sort of hovering on my wishlist though https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
Because of the issues I had with this longline, I also got the balcony bra (review to come).
