This is for an altered band, so I was expecting it to be a bit on the tight side. I'm not particularly thin, but the top of my ribs stick out quite far, so I usually have a bit of trouble with longlines fitting my underbust, and ribs. This one fits well, but I'm not sure how comfortable it would be for extended periods of time.
I am usually a 30FF, and found the cups on this a only a little too big. I think a 30FF would have been too small, as the 30G fits perfectly with a set of Ewa Michalak pads.
Nice round shape, but quite low on my chest still. Nowhere near as much lift as my Cleo or Masquerade bras. I do get a hint of cleavage, but nothing too dramatic.
It is a beautiful print, debating whether I'd have the courage to wear it under sheer shirts, as the black trims do show through quite obviously!

Great half cup shape. I am full on top/even, 2/5 - 3/5, wide roots. I found this bra a great fit.
Only issue - the longline part is not boned, so it kind of bunched up.

The Piper longline was my first longline bra. I like it mostly for the extra hooks at the back. The wings on this model are quite snug; moreso than on the Flourish I own.
My favourite use for this bra is under a button up blouse. Busty girls know that having a blouse that will button up and not gape between buttons is a nearly impossible phenomenon unless you are wearing a shirt much too big for you and can pull off the frumpy look (I know I can't). This bra helps to keep projection to a minimum which helps me fit into said blouses.
As it is a half cup, the wires rise about half an inch too high on my cleavage. The wires end up sitting on breast tissue, but it's a small price to pay for the reduced profile it gives me under tops that would otherwise be unwearable.

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

This bra is very pretty! It has very thick straps, and very wide band. Unfortunately it's no where near my size, so I can't really say anything about the fit and how it should fit people around this size range.

I am crazy about this bra, BUT beware that this band does NOT forgive, so if you use under bust measurement as your band size, get a slightly larger cup than is normally indicated. My measurements indicate a 30G, and a Freya Deco in the same size fits me anywhere from just right to bordering on too large (yes, all same model and same size, different colors though). This great bra fits great band wise on the loosest hooks, BUT, the cup cuts me off. I would have to be constantly fighting or stretching this thing out like nobody's business to get this thing not to quad boob ... me in some form.
I do own a Freya Ivy long line (quite similar in cut I think to the Piper) in 32FF, and that fits fine. I would like a firmer band, but that cup, though roughly the same size as the 30G Piper fits spectacular. My boobs have no restriction, they don't fall out, there is minimal gaping when I throw my shoulders forward, and they basically look suspended at a flattering height.

I LOVE THIS BRA. The pattern is adorable and looks really cute under loose clothes for layering/peek-a-boo looks. The cups are soft and comfortable and give a good shape. The straps are fully adjustable and soft against the skin. The lace trimming doesn't scratch or dig in.
Con: the "longline" aspect of it, though giving excellent support, is a little flimsy--the band flips up throughout the day. No matter to me, I love my Piper and can look past this issue.

Really new to bra fitting -- still not sure how it's supposed to fit. It feels great though and looks awesome under clothes.

I love this bra - the shape of the cups suits me very well and it is quite comfortable. The longline aspect does take a little getting used to, and does roll up when I slouch, although I find keeping it on the tighter set of hooks is more comfortable and helps with this problem.
I do find that it digs in a bit on the bottom of the underwire, although this might be a fitting problem.
