I adore the longline look, so I figured it was finally time to get one of my own. I usually wear a 28FF, but I decided to take a chance on the 28G since it was available. The band is pretty tight on the loosest row (there are only two), but it very stretchy, and I think it will get more comfortable with more wear. Straps are fully adjustable, and sit comfortably on my shoulders.
I honestly did not think it was possible for a cup width to be too wide for me, but Just Flew In definitely walks the line. I would probably like for ... it to be a little more narrow, but there is breast tissue all the way to the end, so it's not that big of a deal. Once the bra is pulled right up into my inframammary fold (And stays there! That never happens!), my breasts fill the cups very nicely and I have very little empty space on my higher breast.
A small bit of gaping at the top, but I do feel like that's from going to a "G" cup, and it's really not noticeable enough for me to worry about it. The gore is probably the biggest complaint I have. It comes up quite high and leaves very angry red marks when I remove the bra. I wish there was a way to bend it out *ever so slightly*, just to take a smidgen of pressure off, but it does not hurt so far.
Overall I feel the fit is pretty nice, but would have been perfect had I gotten my proper size. I will keep it and wear it, because *damn* is it beautiful, and it creates a really nice smooth, rounded shape that looks great under anything that I own.

With this being one of the only (or the only one, not too sure) longline bras in the market in a 28 band size I just had to try it! The band is true to size, it does feel like a proper 28 band bra so I will have to take it in if I want to keep it. The cups, as usual with Freya, are a little too wide for me, but in this bra it is not unbearable. The cups are lined very thinly, like thinner than an Ewa Michalak bra, The material this bra is made out of is gorgeous to the touch, and I love the pattern, which was the feature that sold the bra to me. My one problem with it is why Freya felt that only 2 sets of hooks was a good idea. I can't really wrap my head around the logic of that, if there was any logic :/ Overall, this is a great bra, and if you can get in your band size, then do!

This bra looks beautiful. It's a very soft lavender, with off white lace, giving it a vintage look. I'm a sucker for longlines, so I bought this in a 28G, when my usual size was a 30FF, to accomodate the center gore. I say "was", since my boobs have gone up a cup size or so in the last few weeks (breast migration maybe? I'm 33 so they won't grow anymore!). As with all Freya half cups/longlines, this bra has wider wires and shallower cups than their unpadded cousins.
I'm not sure if it's me, but the band of this particular bra doesn't seem as big as the other Freya's (since Freya's are notorious for big stretchy bands). It's nice and firm.
Anyway, this bra will be up for sale since it's a cup too small for me at the moment. Needless to say, I already have a 30G.
