I had very high hopes for this bra, but it doesn't fit at all. I have a Freya28E - Freya » Flourish Padded Longline Bra (1543) that fits really well and that I like. However, this one, for some unknown reason, quad boobs a lot!! Despite both being a 28e, this one is clearly too small. I think it has less bottom projection, resulting in my boob being lifted up a lot. On the positive side, great cleavage enhancer!
It also only has 2 rows of eyes, which given freya's tendency towards loose bands, is disappointing...
I will upload the 28f when I get it after the returning of this one...
(The bra itself is fine accept for being tiny in the cup! Being a longline does help mitigate freyas loose bands)
I found this last night at Nordstrom rack. It is perfect. In my opinion! I'd like to know what others think because I'm new to this. The underwire hits at exactly the right spot, the gore sits flat and feels fine, the band has that firm feeling that I've been looking for while still being extremely comfortable, no spillage, no wrinkling, no poking, and the material inside the cups feels like clouds.haha I didn't want to take it off. As far as being able to recommend this to others with similar boobs: I've been unsure whether or not I have shallow breasts; I feel lile they're at least slightly shallow. I'm not sure if ...shallowness has anything to do with FoT or FoB, and I appear slightly more FoT but I don't have a nice upper rounded appearance, but I do have a slight lower rounded appearance, so I'm just lost. Maybe they're equal? As for root, maybe a wide or average root. I'm new to this so I apologize that I still haven't figured that out :/ I will update this as soon as I do Read more 76 more words
Too open on the top for me The cups are too wide. Straps rub I want to get a 28F, because of the band-- The sliders are at the top of my shoulders, but I kind of want to size down to a 28E because of the room at the top of the cups.
Initial impression after wearing it briefly: suitable for wide and shallow breasts. Cups seem to run small but the band seems a bit loose 28 (but my UB is 26 so my estimation might be off). Straps are surprisingly not too wide. Gore a bit wide for my close-set breasts but doesn't hurt because of looseness. I get a smidge of quadboob on the inside of the cup and very slight gaping near the straps. The wires are average/narrow. The foam lining structures lightly but allows for the cup to fit to the breast. The band have a tendency to roll ...up especially due to the looseness of the band.
What I didn't like: two columns of hooks. Why!? The band is already loose and once the band stretches out, it's not going to work without some mods. Also, the cups' foam lining is not covered so I don't know how comfortable it is during warmer weather.
Edit: After wearing this bra consistently, it does seem to run small. The bra keeps pulling to my larger side. The gore doesn't tack very well even though I've altered the gore to be narrower. I now mainly keep it for wearing while lounging as even though it doesn't fit that well, the looseness of the band keeps it quite comfortable. Read more 118 more words
I am probably wrong, but I THINK I'm shallow, average root width, and even/FOB. This is the most comfortable bra ever, you can barely feel it when it's on. The band is a tad loose even on the second (of two) hooks, but it doesn't slide up due to the band being so thick. I may have to alter it down after it stretches out more, but that isn't a problem. The wires are about 1" too wide on the sides, but it isn't uncomfortable and it doesn't seem to interfere with the fit. It does expect more upper fullness than I have, which results in a bit of gapping, but it's hardly noticable. The straps are very stretchy but they adjust fully so it isn't a problem. All in all I'm very happy!
Doesn't quite fit, a little too loose (but I did get it pre-loved), a little too wide, a little too shallow. I would have kept it if the band didn't flip up every time I sat down. I don't have a problem with that in my tighter longlines, so it must be the loosened band. Fits my best friend beautifully though so I'm passing it on!
I wish I could wear this bra because it is so cute and comfortable. The print is adorable, reminding me of carefree summer months and lounging in the grass after a picnic. Even seeing it in my drawer makes me smile. The only drawback is that the pink lace trim is wider than I expected it to be. The padded cups make this bra very gentle on the skin, and the straps are thick enough to be quite comfortable. However, it's simply not a good match for my projected breasts. The band is a very comfortable 30; if I fit the intended shape of this bra, I would likely size down to a 28 since I prefer a tighter band in general and there are only 2 columns of eyes instead of 3.
I was still figuring out my proper size when I gave this a try and then missed the return shipping deadline. I'm between a 30/32 band and this band is too big and the cups are too small. It doesn't fit me, but it's a cute longline.
