This doesn't fit me as well as the short version in the 30FF. The cups on the longline are too wide and tall and my boobs don't fill out the bottom or sides. Really cute though. Might try the 30F? Maybe?
This bra is cut like the 28E - Freya » Just Flew In Padded Longline Bra (1393), which I absolutely love. It gives me a great, rounded shape, and holds my breasts up and together so my shallow, flat looking boobs look like normal breasts https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> (if such a thing actually existed.)
I do like how they used fabric straps instead of the industrial looking elastic they have on the JFI. It is more delicate and feminine looking. However, I haven't worn the bra long enough to be able to tell you if this change affections fit yet.
Really like the lift it gives me. I have broad shoulders so the straps are perfect, but it would be nice if the underwire went a little higher on the side. Also I have a bit of a tummy so the fabric in the front under the wires rolls up when I sit.
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. Read more 127 more words
BAND: Okay, but a little loose. With only 2 sets of hooks to adjust, I think I probably would fit better in the 34. WIRE: Seemed to be okay. CUP: Um. Bottom of cup seemed to fit. Top flappiness. Would have to alter it, maybe move the strap? STRAP: Eh. Okay, but too wideset. I didn't wear it long enough to know how it would really feel. DESIGN: I kind of love the color and the dots.
Conclusion: I would want to try this in a 34GG and I don't think they make it in that size.
