Love the idea of a longline! However, the cup is either too small for me or too shallow. As a result, the bra slides down throughout the day. The hooks at the back take *forever* to get done, but once they are done up it looks amazing. Definitely "cakes on a plate" look. I do get some cutting in on my larger breast so I'd like to try the style in a larger cupsize.
Runs a little big in the band, which curls up (which could be from my bad posture), but I still find it comfortable and great for when I'm a bit heavier. While I find it good enough, I will definitely size down on the band if I come across another of longlines. I also cut the rosettes on the straps, as I found them too much.
ETA: I've meanwhile realized that some of the issues with this bra (the riding up, the too loose band) are because I have a very "conical" torso. I'm going to try to sew the bottom part of the band so it won't stretch and it might fit me better.
Unfortunately, this bra is an extremely poor fit on me. I need a 28 band in this style (which isn't made), and the cup is just a little bit too small, even when the band is tightened. I really need to sell it because it really doesn't fit, but I keep convincing myself that I can get my sewing machine out and save it by taking in the band. I just hate getting rid of a bra that's SO CUTE. This is literally one of the prettiest bras I've ever seen. This is the bra I was longing for back when all I could find in my size ...were ugly nude tents.
I do know that these longlines run very large in the band. I have other longlines in a 30 band, and they just float away from me (even though I can wear Masquerade and Ewa Michalak 30 bands on the middle or tightest hook). Since the bra really doesn't fit, I feel that I can't comment on the specific cup shape; however I'm not terribly impressed with the shape on any of my Freya longlines, which is disappointing because I've wanted a longline forever and I don't really like the prints on the Cleo Sadie. I think that the shape would be improved if I tried a 28 band, but I feel like it still wouldn't be mind-blowing. That said, I definitely don't think the shape is anywhere near awful, and I'm willing to wear something that's not perfect when the appearance is so excellent otherwise.

I kept this bra for a long time because I SO wanted it to work. It's beautiful and comfortable, sturdy and super soft. When I got it, it was just a bit too small, and it's low-cut on top so my boobs just fell out if I leaned forward. Now it's a LOT too small and the cup barely covers my nipples under the best of circumstances.
It's a BEAUTIFUL bra and I recommend it highly for someone who's an F-G cup and a 28-32 band (this bra offers a lot more support in the band than most because it's a longline,) but now that I've crossed over into HH territory I have to let it go. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
This is a very pretty bra. I like that the straps adjust all the way, as I have a short torso. The only complaint is that the cups are very low-cut--sometimes it feels like they will fall out. I think I prefer something with more coverage.
As soon I saw this bra I wanted to own it! I love the print and the look of this bra. First I bought in my normal size, 32E, but as with other bras from Freya, the band is too stretchy. Also the cups were to small and there were overspill, and now I have figured out, that I wear a 30FF in the lightly padded styles from Freya. It is very comfortable and I love love the longline style, and though it has a tendency to “roll up” throughout the day, it isn´t a problem. I´m looking forward to the summer and to wear this bra with a pair of high waisted shorts or a loose fitting see-through top https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
