After failure with 32E I got this beauty in 32DD (but Id definietly prefer in 30E! so if anyone has it and wants to get rid of it please contact me!). I must say that im highly surprised! If this bra would be hard padded like EM CHPs it would give exactly th same effect! It has 2 vertical seams, the separation of cups could be narrower but its fine. Band is very comfortable and it doesnt have boning so I can wear it. The wires are quite narrow but not as narrow as my lovely EMs. Overall im glad that Ive tried the bra
such damn cute bra! This half cup fits very similar to my 70F - Comexim » Rose Half Cup with the difference of too large cups. I need to try it in 30E or 32DD as the wires would be narrower and the cup volume should be okay. Ive bought this bra as I just looked at the tittle on ebay - it was saying 30E, but that was a mistake unfortunately as in the desctiption cleary says its 32E - so my mistake. I love the look of it, the long band feels very cosy on the body - not like other longlines that ive been trying previously. Also the wires are okay as just 13.6cm.
Ugh, I wanted this one to fit so badly! I originally purchased the Totally Tartan longline in a 30F, & hoped that by sizing up to a 30FF the quadboob would disappear.
Unfortunately, the cups are too wide and shallow for my breasts, no matter the size of the bra. The the lack of immediate & center projection created many fit issues that I dread. The cup wrinkles at the bottom as my breasts scoot the bra down in search of more projection. Consequently, as the cups ride down, the wires slide their way out of my IMF and sit uncomfortably on my ribs. The outer edge of the cup still cuts in and creates a bit of quadboob as the bra migrates down, even after sizing up. Lastly, the longline band annoyingly bunches and curls up in the front throughout the day.
Sitting in my drawer this bra is lovely in an understated, almost delicate way. But on my body, it's quite a mismatch.
A huge disappointment for me; the realisation just kicked in that longlines are not my friends. Besides the bra being at least a cup size too small, I just can't stand the feeling of it. Maybe sensory issues, idk. Meh
This fits me better than the Patsy. I think the cups are more of a U shape. The straps are super comfortable and stretch. The band does roll up a bit since there's no boning. Great cake on a plate cleavage.
Technically doesn't fit, due to a shape mismatch: the cups are too shallow for me. Given I have soft tissue, it's fine when I first put the bra on, but over the course of the day the insufficient immediate projection at both the base of the cup and the gore slowly but surely loses the battle with my boobs, and by the end of the day the underwire at the base of the cup is invariably being driven in between my ribs. Less than awesome.
Also, the bottom of the longline flips up pretty much all day long.
I still adore it, though, because the colour way (and the buttons!) just call to me. I love the understated, less frilly, more casual look of this bra.
This bra is great! Love the look of the denim print. The band fits large, so I recommend sizing down. The cups are true to size for Freya hatlfcups. I love the look of the longline but it does tend to roll up with wear.
I am still discovering things about my shape and I think I found my boob twin on a blog. I have OiaG/omega boobs and I tend to get wrinkles in the bottom of the cup, side tissue escaping, and I can't really wear longlines because of my ribs.
This bra is much tighter than other longlines I've worn. It's snug everywhere. I like the snugness, but at times it irritates me after wearing it all day. The 'boning', while by no means heavy, usually digs in by the end. The underwires also dig into my rib cage under my breasts.
Initially this bra was incredibly painful in the gore. The person who owned it before me bent the wires, and I bent them out further. The gore still has the appearance of sitting on my sternum without the agony.
The shape from this bra is very round. There are lines going down the cups that are sometimes visible through clothing, but not to the extent of other longlines. The colour is delightful - two shades of blue pinstripes that together appear periwinkle, and yellowed wooden buttons for contrast.
Unfortunately a cup size or two small for me, but I love the toned down nature of this bra! After all the lace and bows, I appreciate the denim pattern and the wooden buttons. The material is nice and soft and so are the cups; cups have just enough padding and structure to do their job, but otherwise fairly malleable. It does run shallow at the gore, which is why I'm afraid it might not work for me in a larger size. The wires are decent, not too wide but not really narrow. Band is similar to the other Freya 30s I've owned, but it doesn't stretch out as dramatically since there's more fabric.The 6 rows of hooks are somewhat difficult to get done up on the first try, but the support and comfort level is great, even on my flared ribcage.
I really want a longline that works! Still have my eye on Wellfitting's Comexim longlines...
