    I think this fits! I know that Freya bras tend to run large in the band. The 30 longlines I had stretched out pretty quickly and since there are only two rows of hooks, I didn't want to have to sew it so I could continue to wear it. The 28 is a tad tight, but the band is stretchy, so I don't mind.

    I have shallow boobs and this bra gives me cake on a plate look. I can hardly believe they're my boobs! I'd like the wires to be a bit wider, so I might bend them, but other than that it's great. The straps don't dig into my armpits either, another added plus. The straps are a little scratchy, but I'll put up with them.

    I have the orange with white dots. I wish I could get another color, but that's ok. No one will see it under my clothes.

    • I love the Freya long line bras. They are so pretty and I think they fit better. Freya's soft cup bras never fit me. I like the Deco but it puts marks on my inner boob tissue. I love my 28F Just flew in Freya long line. I wish I had it in a 28E though, just to see if it would be too small. Sometimes I feel like I need 2 sizes in one bra.

      Deco never worked for me. I've got a Piper longline coming in the mail in 28F. Can't come soon enough. Is the JFI too big? Are you selling it?

    • It fits. Sometimes it gapes a little bit on top. Do you ever feel like you're in between sizes? I feel that way a lot. Like the 28F JFI is a tiny bit big but the 28E probably would be just a tiny bit small. I sometimes feel like I'm in-between a 28F-28FF in Cleo Juna. In be-tween a 28E-28F in other bras. Lana in-between a 28DD-28E. Or some 30DD-30E. 32D-32Dd. LOL I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. It would be really nice to have 3 or 4 sizes in the same bra. It's weird wearing different sizes in different bras. It makes our quest to find the perfect bra even more difficult! LOL another one of my rants! LOL

    • Yeah! All the time. My boobs are uneven. So if one side fits the other doesn't. Wish one cup could be E and the other F.

    • uniteacher always fit your bigger breast. I always try to fit my bigger girl. I just sometimes feel like I need two different sizes for one bra even when fitting my bigger boob.
      Which polish calculator put you as a 32E?

    • 1

      Yes. I always get bras that fit my bigger side. http://brasizecalculator.eu This is the bra. It put me in. 32E when I was pregnant. I need to update my profile.

    • Thank you uniteacher ! :)

      sizemapp.com says I'm a 28F. But a week ago when my laying down measurement was 31.5", sizemapp sized me at 26E/28DD. Ewa Michalak's calculator sized me 30DD/30D. reddit/r/abrathatfits sized me at 28F/FF

    • 1

      It says 28F if I put my over bust at 34"
      It says 28E if I put my over bust at 33.5".

    • EM puts me at 70A. Sizemapp puts me at a 28F. Blah.

    • And THIS is why I can't find a bra that fits.

    • uniteacher GO ON ZULILY.com!! They have Masquerade and Cleo bras for really cheap right now! You'll never find stuff this cheap ever!!!

    • But they don't do returns do they? Do they ship to Korea?

    • I don't know. I think they are in the U.S.
      15 dollars for a Cleo bra and 30 for masquerade.
      If they do ship to Korea it would be worth your while to look. I have never seen such low prices for those bras. If women on bratabase sold new bras for that price they would be selling like hotcakes!!!

    • $18.99 for some of the Cleo bras. 8 dollars for wire free Atlantis bras!!! 8 dollars for padded push up Atlantis bras?!!! I looked on bratabase and they were trying to sell those for a lot more than $7.99!

      Not going to happen :(

      Can zulily ship internationally?

      At this time, zulily can send purchases only to street addresses in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. However, packages containing liquids cannot be sent to Alaska or Hawaii. zulily does not ship to PO Boxes or APO/FPO addresses, or to U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico or Guam.

      The good news is that I have a handful of bras coming in the mail. I'm a minimalist, so 5 should be enough. Just hope they fit!

    • uniteacher I didn't know that.

    • uniteacher Your altering looks good. :)

      And it fits a lot better!

    • what's the best way to make a 34 band into a 28 band?

    • You could take in the gore and band and then move the straps in.

    • This band is like 32 or a 30. The cups are right next to each other so I'm not doing the gore on this one. I should of folded it and sewn it like that, instead I ripped the seams out of the hook and eye pieces and cut a little off the band. Now I'm hemming the part I cut trying to make the band A shaped instead V shaped. And then I was going to sew the hook and eye pieces back on. LOL. This is my first attempt doing it this way. 2nd attempt at altering a band. LOL Frankenbra!!! LOL

    • I used to alter all my bras but gave up. Now I just try to find a few that fit well.

    • I've also sewn along the bottom of the elastic so it stretches less to make the band smaller.

    • So I could sew on the top of the elastic band to make the top stretch less or make it smaller?
      Good idea. The reason I want to do this is because most bras in my size, the straps are too wide set, and the gores are too wide. I think altering a band is easier than doing the straps. Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know. It's just sad when nothing fits except for an altered VS model bra! Makes me want to buy sister sizes and just alter the band. :) :/

    • Give it a shot. You can always take the stitches out.

    • Why did you give up on altering bras?

    • I found some brands that work for me. I figure they know more about it than I do.

    Band is on the loose side: I prefer 30 bands in Cleo, but this one is just perfect with 28 band. Cups are quite open on top, causing a little gaping, but not enough to size down. It sits quite low on my body; I might just be wearing it too low, but it is comfortable in that place, so I'm not worried. It's not very full coverage, so if you're looking for a very supportive bra, you could do better.

    The band tends to roll up several times a day, and I end up adjusting it every now and then; it's not too big a problem, but a bit annoying. I have scoliosis and one of my ribs sticks out more than the other, so that might affect the fit.

    Shape is nice under clothes, but due to the band rolling (and the distinctive colour), I prefer to wear it with looser t-shirts. It's comfortable to wear whole day, and my only real complaint is the band rolling.

    The bra is so cute design-wise, and makes my conical, somewhat shallow breasts look incredibly rounded and nice. I had no issues with the band riding up either. It is quite a bit stretchier than expected, as is common with Freya bands, but not by much.

    Definitely need to adjust the straps, both because 1. they're longer than normal and 2. the bra has a tendency to slide down. I didn't adjust the first time I wore it since I thought everything looked fine and would stay in place - mistake! It was my first time with a "real", properly fitting bra, thus my naiveté.

    Because of that, bra ... shifted through the day and the underwire ended up sitting nearly a finger's width below my direct underbust. Consequently, the gore ended up digging into my sternum rather painfully - I kept tugging it away from my body on and off just to give my chest a break from the pain. Once the straps were tightened (I placed the bra exactly where it needed to be, underwire wise, had my SO hook it in, and *then* tightened straps as needed), everything stayed perfectly in place through the day. Beware, the underwires still do dig into to your sternum - just not as uncomfortably.

    The wires also are quite wide, they extend past where my breast tissue starts under my arm. However, there's been no problems with them poking into me and thus I'm not bothered by it. The straps are wider-set as well.

    Apart from the issues with the center underwire, the rest of the bra is very comfortable and a good fit. There's very slight gaping on my right, smaller breast, but it's negligible. Design is adorable, and the shape the Patsy Longline gives me is amazing. I'm so happy with it, and it's my first bra that fits!

    Based on my great experience with the Deco longline bra, I expected great things of this bra. When I put it on, I was pleased with the fit, comfort, and appearance. The style is current with a sweet vintage vibe. However, after wearing it during the day, I noticed gaping at the tops of the cups. I may have been able to size down in the cups. Still, the lift is very good. The band is actually amazingly comfortable, with extra soft padding along the hooks. Overall, the material is nice, and the bra is very cute both in terms of style and color/pattern, providing a good, uplifted shape, and I can fix the gaping by layering a cami over it.

    Edit: After wearing this bra I realize I really should have gone down a size in the cups. There's just too much gaping at the top. Beyond that, though, I've decided Freya just isn't the brand for my breast shape.

    So most people know that Freya tends to have pretty stretchy bands, but the longline aspect means this bra is still supportive even though the stretched measurement is a full 5" longer than my tight as possible underbust measurement (3" longer than my comfortably snug measurement).

    I love the shape this gives me, I am not well endowed but under a tight tank top I think my breasts just look lifted and perky, although I wouldn't necessarily say it creates legit cleavage, which is fine by me.

    The straps are a little too separated for me, but it isn't a big enough problem for me to return this bra, and ... the wires are too wide for me, but not by a ridiculous amount. The pattern is cute and I feel supported and confident about the size/shape of my breasts so it is a keeper for me, even if it doesn't technically fit perfectly.

    I would also say this runs pretty true to size. Although up until now I have only bought 28E, I have started to experience quadboob in those bras due to tissue migration so I would say my "typical" size is now much closer to 28F (although my smaller breast does struggle to fill the cup without major scooping and swooping). I don't think there's any need to size up or down in cup or band for this bra from what you normally wear in Freya/Cleo.
