I am pleasantly surprised by the band of this longline. As somebody who usually wears 28 bands (and loves longlines), I daresay that I almost don't have to alter it. Unfortunately, I have soon become a sub 28 band (26.5" now) and the 30 band is really unacceptable. I recommend this to 29" and maybe 28".
The print is lovely. I imagine a goth princess, an antique dress collector, or even a Japanese lolita trend-follower wearing this longline - definitely a crowdpleaser. The color scheme and the floral is not tacky in any way (I am very sensitive to things like that). The ... fabric is soft and the powermesh sides are nice and firm.. Even more firm than the same size in a Freya Carys longline.
The back band closes in 2 rows of 6 hooks. I must admit, the 2 rows does leave more to be wanted, but I feel like the firmness of the band makes up for this.
The vertical seaming on the cup is wonderful for full on top/shallows and, to me, the Freya padded halfcup style is unrivaled by the Freya unpadded balconette styles. (However, I did briefly try the Freya Ginny and I can't say the same about the diagonal seam on that padded halfcup).
*** Also, the straps aren't the traditional ugly Freya straps. They match the pattern on the bra body and they're smooth and thin with a slight padding - very comfortable and don't dig in!

This is gorgeous, but I have trouble with the underwires in front because of my pectus carinatum.

I am a 28e, but sized up to a 30e because it's so hard to find 28 band bras. The cups' volume fit my wide boobs pretty well, despite being one size too large, but they are a bit wide. The band is just too big, which is not the bra's fault. I'd love to swap this for a 28e.

Good bra, much softer fabric than some of the other half cups (like the Patsy). The wires are a little narrower than I prefer and stiffer than I'd like but it has a good fit and is comfortable. The longline style gives a lot of support.

This bra is really cute and definitely gives some nice lift but I need a bigger cup and tighter band. I found that the quadboob was worse in this model than the Ivy or Totally Tartan.

For me, this fits very similarly to the Tartan longline (which is supposedly the same cut). I find the Piper seems to give me a little more oomph upwards, but that could just be small sewing differences between the two bras. I also for some reason find that the band in the front doesn't want to roll/curl up as much as on my Tartan.

This bra makes me feel like my breasts are resting on clouds. The wires are a tad (.25 inches) too wide, but that doesn't cause any discomfort. The band runs big and if this were't a longline, I think it would be too long for me. But since the band is so wide, I am comfortably supported.

When I fully scoop, it get a little bit of spillage. However, it all settles back quickly. The band is a bit looser than my other Freya bras, but it still stays in place because of its width. The lace trim on the band can fold under when I sit, but it is not uncomfortable.

I love longline bras because the band is so wide! The bra stays firmly in place throughout the day and there is no need for readjustment. Although the front can roll up at the bottom during wear, it does not affect the comfort or appearance (underneath clothes) and can usually be ignored.
The fit is identical to my Freya Just Flew In longline.
It is a pink-y/peach color that would blend in nicely on a caucasian skin tone but may not be compatible for others. I especially like the quality of the black lace trim on this bra and the grosgrain textured straps!

Fit well but I returned it as I decided I didn't need it. Also the other longline that I have from Freya (30E - Freya » Patsy Padded Longline Bra (1222) and some of the other Freya bras I've had for a bit aren't starting to fit as well. I didn't want to take the risk.
