First of all, it is super pretty.
I wear my bras without underwires nowadays because of my weird ribs, and this one gives the most lift and hold.
I also like the way the band is made, it has a completely unstretchy mesh underlayer at the front, and stretchy but pretty firm mesh at the back.

Really pretty bra, probably my favorite one I own. I was so excited to find the very last one hidden in the bottom row of clearance at Nordstrom Rack in my size.
The cups are lined just enough that they hide nipples while still being flexible like soft cups. It gives me a nice rounded shape and a little cleavage.
Interestingly, unlike what other reviewers are saying, mine does have three rows of hooks. I'm not sure why there would be different numbers of hooks, but it doesn't seem to be related to size. My only guess is that Freya started making them with three rows later on. If ... you're ordering this online and the number of rows is important to you, make sure you ask before buying, because it looks like it could turn out either way.
The most annoying problem with this bra is in the bottom of the band - it cuts into my five-months-pregnant belly and flips up, making it feel annoyingly tight. I mostly fixed it (for now) by using two extenders: one on the bottom two hooks fastened in the middle row and one on the middle two hooks fastened on the tightest row. Then I just fasten the top two hooks normally on the loosest row. I've seen a lot of people mention this flipping problem, so I guess it's a common issue. Hopefully this can help someone!
One thing I don't really understand is that when I take it off, the marks from the underwires are pretty far below where my breasts actually are. But when I'm wearing it, it doesn't look or feel like there's empty space at the bottom at all. Not a huge issue, so I'll probably just ignore it for now. I'd be interested to know why this happens, though.
Overall, I love it, and will definitely keep an eye out for more good deals on Freya longlines.

Oh my god this bra is ADORABLE! This is the first one I've gotten that actually FITS and is COMFORTABLE! It's so soft. The only issue I have with it is that I don't feel like I'd find enough excuses and opportunities to wear it because I am so used to wearing molded and t-shirt type bras.

I love the pattern and design of this bra, but this size did not work with my breasts. The cup fit my larger breast snugly. I would maybe try this bra on in a 30FF or 28G.

I absolutely adore the looks of the Freya Piper Longline Bra in Passionfruit. It gives me a wonderfully rounded shape from the side, just like the Cleo Marcie. Just like the 30F Cleo Marcie, however, this bra gives me side tissue bulge. I can no longer find the Passionfruit color in 30FF.
The cups of the Piper Longline are vertical seamed, so if you like cakes on a plate cleavage, I would try this. Freya's unpadded balconettes are too narrow and deep for me, but I've had great luck with their vertical seamed half cups.

I actually think this bra fits me pretty well, except for a couple of issues. It's started to dig into my right side, which is the side of my smaller boob. On the right as well, it gaps a bit at the top. I might be able to size down a cup. Or maybe go up a band. I have an extender in and I'm hoping that it will eventually stretch a bit.

I love the way this bra makes my breasts look. However, I think it may be too small in the cups as some breast tissue spills over under the arms after I move for a period of time in it. I first tried on a 30G and could barely fasten it because the band was too tight, so I decided to try what I thought was a 32F on instead. I could fasten this bra, and it was a snug fit. I was on the fence about the sideboob thing, but I really liked the way my breasts looked, I admit. My breasts are bottom-heavy, and this makes ... them look fuller on top. I decided to go for it anyway, the bra was on sale for like $30 at Nordstrom Rack.
Later, when I decided to enter the measurements into the Bratabase, I noticed the actual tag in the bra -- not the price tag -- actually said 30F! Which makes no sense to me, because the 30G, which I would think would be a bit looser because of the cups, I couldn't fit into. Plus, from what I've read, this model runs snugger than some of the other Freya models. That makes sense to me, because in other Freya models I've tried, a 30 band usually works out pretty good for me. So I don't know really if this is a 30F or a 32F, but I've put 30F in the bratabase, since that what it says on the tag. Maybe I got an off-model bra lol :/
I'd really like to try out this model in a 30FF and a 32FF just to compare.
