    I have been eyeing this bra since it's release at the Moda show. Someone had a picture of it in their blog and I had to have it! My favorite color is orange, and even more so when it's combined with teal/turquoise. It's not a true orange though, I wish it were, more like a bright coral with a hint of orange. Still...I love it! =)

    Pros:
    -Freya added an extra column of hooks, so there are now 3 positions to close this on!
    -Cups give a fantastic rounded ... shape without looking too in your face, fake, or padded looking.
    -The padding is really more of a lining, it compresses very thin so it does not add anything at all to size, if you're worried about that. I still have show-through but it's not that bad.
    -Straps have a nice feel to them, textured without all the stitching which means they're more gentle against the skin but won't readjust or slide around on you.
    -Longline style helps it stay in place better, so less riding around.
    -Fabric is super comfortable! (Same with the matching bikini style bottoms, which BTW are shaped a lot better so there's actually rear coverage!!)
    -Lace on cups is not itchy.

    Cons:
    -Because they added an extra column of hooks, this means the bra is now longer. It would have been logical to place them in towards the side, rather than out to the center back. Because of this, the band is longer than my ribcage around without even stretching it! =(

    That's really my only issue, everthing else is perfect. I will be taking this in a some point. The smallest hook to eye measurement without stretching is 25.25" so I can wear this on the smallest eyes and have it with 0.75" of negative ease (ribcage is 26" measured loose). It's not enough but it will do for now.

    I love this bra. The colours are so great, the cups fit similar to other Freya longlines. The straps seem a bit thicker, than other longlines, though, and have a textured diamond pattern on them to stop the adjusters from sliding around. It has 3 rows of hooks to fasten, but I think the band seems a bit longer than other longlines I have.

    When the sales associate at my local bra shop brought this to me, I was not impressed. It looked like entirely too much fabric to be flattering. But I tried it on anyway, and I'm so glad that I did! It's beautiful!

    That said, this bra isn't a perfect fit on me. My measurements put me around 28G or 30FF, so I'm getting some quad boob in this, and I could easily go to the last hook on this bra, new. However, even at the first hook, it's not uncomfortable. I think the Longline keeps the band sturdy around my back, even with the size difference. Also, thanks to the cut of the bra, the quad-boob isn't *that* bad. The top of the cups does not dig in, like in some bras I have, so even though my boobs pop out, it isn't unwearably noticeable.

    I ended up buying the bra, since it was an improvement over what I was already wearing, but I think I'm going to look for a 30FF in the same line.

    I *love* the look of this bra. Favorite longline bra so far. It's so beautiful, the colors are so vibrant. The green is gorgeous and the burnt orange gives it a nice touch.

    The one problem I have is... Freya longlines (or padded half cups for that matter) are NOT made for me. :-( Oh the horror. I need more depth and narrower wires. The cup of this bra is more shallow and the wires are too wide for me. With the result that I am slightly quad boobing in the middle and there's empty space on the sides of the cups, near the ... straps. The center gore is too wide for me as well, it's not sitting flat. But then again, that could be just a result of the cups being too shallow and my boobs, which need more projection, pushing the gore outward. I've tried many sizes in these long lines, and no matter how big the cup, the center gore never sits flat.

    To make matters worse, I bought this bra a cup too small. I think I'll try and see if anyone wants to exchange so I can wear a 30FF, because as it is now, I can basically only wear this bra on my smallest time during the month: the week of my period and immediately after that.

    Even with all these problems, the bra gives amazing support, and it is comfortable to wear. I never feel uncomfortable during the entire day. I will keep buying the Freya longlines, because I love the look of them and they still give great support.

    • I notice you say the cups are too shallow and wide for you... How do you compare the depth and width to the Cleo Lucy?
      I'm asking because I ADORE these bras, but I am limited to ordering online. I need shallow and wide cups, and I happen to have a Cleo Lucy (altho in a 30G), so I believe it'd be getting same ratio, but I'm just assuming.

    • Hi! I think the main problem for me is that the Ivy is just not deep enough. The Lucy 30FF is definitely deeper than the Ivy, and the 30G will be even more so. I just measured the width of both cups, and the 30FF Lucy is 13.5cm while the Ivy 30F is 13cm (I am not including the thickness of the wires in the measurement, since logically your breast tissue is supposed to be encased in the wires, I think that's why some of the measurements on bratabase are off?).

      In my case, wires are almost always too wide. They always go, even if it's a bit, beyond my breast tissue. That's partly because my breasts are not that wide and partly because I am quite petite (5'2") so naturally most wires will be too wide. That on itself doesn't bother me much, but if the width is off... then my breasts will be squished and will try to escape in the middle.

      I'm not sure if 30G Lucy fits you? I think the only way to tell if a bra fits you is to try. I am also limited to ordering online and I have spent tons of time and money on trying and returning bras. It's tiring... but you end up really learning which styles and brands fit you best. But if your breasts are more shallow and you need wide wires, I'd say go for it!

      Look at these reviews of the same bra. Both have the same size. But it suits one better than the other, just because the shape of their breasts are different!

      I get the impression that the second reviewer has more wide rooted shallower breasts than the first. And the first needs more depth.
