    I love this bra. LOVE. I will say, though, that the band is super stretchy and I would go down to a 28 if it were available. I tend not to wear this as an everyday bra because I don't want to stretch it out, and also the extra fabric that makes it a longline (forgive me, I don't know what to call it) does flip up a little bit if I bend over. It's sheer physics. But. Good lord. This is one of my very favorite bras. I may buy several of them to make sure I will always have one in the right size no matter what time of the month I'm in.

    This bra is gorgeous, I've been wanting it since it popped up in the "coming soon" section of the Freya website! I really like the taiga biome and its dark green plants (my favorite color!) and red and white winter berries, so this was perfect for me. I also love longlines, and plan to wear this under a lacy black shirt!

    That said, I was a tiny bit disappointed with the shape. It's a very neutral shape, not too natural, and not too round. I like a round shape, so I was kind of hoping for something with a little more "oomph."

    However, the band runs pretty large, and I ... feel that if it came in a 28 band, I could perhaps get a better shape from it. Right now it sort of feels like the wires are floating a bit, rather than holding my boobs in. I think I'm going to try and get it altered down to a 28 band, because I think it'll improve the shape drastically. I'll update this when/if it happens!

    A quick note about the "longline" aspect of it: I wish the bottom of the band didn't roll up so much! It feels like I'm rolling it back down every five minutes. I feel like some boning would help with this, although I worry that it would make the bra too expensive.

    This was the first bra I found that was *almost* a great fit. Even though the cups are a bit shallower than I need, the half cup style paired with wider wires gave my tissue a little more space. The longline helps the wires stay in my IMF a bit more than other bras have. The bra was very comfortable for the first few hours of wearing, but towards the end of the day I noticed the straps might be a little too wide set for me and unfortunately the gore is definitely too wide/high.

    My shape: teardrop set at average height, with super tall and super wide roots that give me all the shallow-boob fitting problems but with more projection, very close-set tissue in the middle, and firm tissue that fights back when squished or pushed out of shape

    I love longlines, and I love this longline. It's definitely cuter in person! I am not usually much for prints, but I am glad I decided to swap for this one. Unfortunately for me, it's too large in the cups by probably 2 sizes, just like the 30FF - Freya » Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223) I recently tried, although ... the difference in size didn't seem as vast for some reason. If I pull my shoulders back, like I am in one of the photos, you can see how it still gaps along my smaller breast. Because the cups are too large and stand away, they also create a very angular open neckline across my bust (which would be hidden by clothes but would still bug me), and it isn't flattering.

    It's not helped by the fact that the straps are in my armpits and almost falling off my shoulders, but both the regular Patsy and the 30G - Freya » Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223) did the same thing. Note: the straps rarely actually fell off my shoulders, but they sit right on the point and I don't like it.

    I could probably stand to size down in the band if they made it, because it was comfy-to-loose on the second row of hooks, although it could still work because the larger band distributes tension and support better across the larger fabric expanse. Sizing down might not help with the straps issue, though, but I have learned with my other Freyas that I should be wearing almost exclusively 28s in this brand.

    The wires under my arm are still a teensy bit narrow for me, which surprised me given how many people have trouble with them being too wide, and how many people have noted they are so much wider than the Freya plunges. However, as with all the Freyas I have ever tried (and quite a lot of other bras as well but to a lesser extent), they are also a steeper curve than my roots require, although they are pretty close. There was a little slight scratchy feeling while I was taking photos, but I'm sure that would come out with a wash or two.

    The gore lays flat and it doesn't dig, which is nice for such a comparatively high and wide bridge. I think the bottom of the cups were actually filled ok, which is much better than my 30FF - Freya » Deco Charm Moulded Plunge Bra (1471) , and I understand that all the half cups are much better about projection than their plunge counterparts, so that's promising!

    Now to find a 30E!

    This bra is GORGEOUS but definitely too large in the band and too wide in the cups for me. Seems like all the Freya halfcups are too wide, but they're so cute! Best for average to FOT shapes, average to wide roots. This bra does only have 2 columns of hooks & eyes.

    This bra is great. It's my first longline, but it's comfortable and I'm pleased i can wear it under t-shirts because it's not lacy and bumpy. The only difficulty I have is putting it on the right way—too many clips to do in the back! But that's obvious, since it's a longline—I just have to get used to it.

    I have a Freya Piper Padded Longline Bra (1233) in 30F and it fits pretty well. I was afraid that the 30FF wouldn't fit, but I moved the straps a bit, which means less gaping and no rubbing under my arms.

    It's a very pretty bra and not too visible under tee shirts. The longline doesn't flip up on me. It does scrunch a bit, but I don't mind. One issue I have is with the band. The bottom part of the band is looser on me since my rib cage is smaller in that area. I mean, I'm a triangle, not a rectangle. I wish they would have tapered the band a bit. I like that there are 3 rows of hooks instead of 2.

    This bra is cute and high quality. It's by far the most comfortable bra I have tried, even though it didn't quite fit. I will definitely be getting this one in the proper size.

    Another winner from Freya! Longline bras aren't easy to put on but once you get the hang of it, I think they're fabulous. This gives me a beautiful "front and center" uplift and everything fits where it should fit.

    This bra is really pretty! Even though the bra runs big, the longline shape helps to prevent too much movement of the band. This is only a 'once in a while' bra for me because there isn't very much support provided by the band, cups, or straps as they are all very stretchy. The cups were a bit wide and shallow for me. I would prefer a narrower, deeper cup with straps set closer together.
