I was so excited to try this bra - and I was not disappointed! I normally fit in a 28E, but since it isn't available in the AW2012 style (super excited for the new blue one in 28E) I opted for a 30DD. I'm definitely satisfied with the band. It stretches to 30" (so it's true to size) for me but I find it to be quite snug, even with a 27" underbust. I assume it has something to do with the fact that it's a longline. The gore is surprisingly very comfortable, usually I have to bend it outwards in a new bra. I fill out the ... cups well but seem to get a bit of quadboob when I inhale. It isn't enough of an issue to size up or anything, it's just because of the angle of my chest. The cups are open enough on top for my (mostly) even, somewhat shallow breasts.
The bra itself is so pretty. I just love floral prints, along with pastel colors, and this one is no exception. The watercolor-like print is gorgeous against the light pink color. The little polka dot bows are super cute too, especially the ones on the straps! I really don't have any complaints about the appearance of the bra - I absolutely love it.
A minor complaint is that the band bunches and flips up quite easily. It's not a huge deal to me, but some might have an issue with it.

Ordered this too small. The wires are almost narrow enough for me but my boobs are squished and popping out the top. The bra itself is great though.

I already owned a Freya Just Flew In longline bra in a 28DD, my regular size. It was gorgeous and comfy, but the cups were a little small for one of my breasts. Since then, I have been searching for my proper size in Freya longlines.
The "passion fruit" (pink) colour is one of the older longlines so the smallest band size it comes in is a 30. I took a risk and tried the 30DD, figuring maybe a band size up could give me enough cup room.
To my surprise, this size is very good on me. Still a bit small for my largest breast, but that means there isn't too much gaping on my smaller breast (ah, the joys of asymmetry!). The band fits me very comfortably, around the same feel as the JFI in a 28DD. And, obviously, I think the design is gorgeous!

This is similar to Freya's padded half cups (totally tartan, patsy etc.) but with a longline band.
My issues with this bra:
Orange in a glass
What I love about it:
Very pretty bra, can even be worn as a summer top if you're daring
Fully adjustable straps
