I'm a former Josie fan, as I used to buy most of my bras from them. I no longer do because they don't carry anything lower than a 32 band, which I now know is not my correct size. However, bias aside, it's alright, if you fit in their tiny 32-36 B-DD size range.
-I love longlines, so I was very excited to see one in [what I thought was] my size that was affordable (about $45). However, once I tried it on, I realized it's not a full longline: there are only two rows of hooks in the back, and the longline look comes from the front being ... a few inches longer than the back. Not only does this make it roll up a lot, but it lacks the longline shape I was so excited for.
-I don't really like the shape this bra gives me. This is probably because of it being at least a band size too big, but I think it's also because the bra is made from very soft and flexible moulded foam. It conforms to your shape, rather than shaping you. This may seem like a great feature, but I find that it fails to support me at all. I've noticed this with a lot of Natori bras, and I suspect it has something to do with their inadequate size range.
-Another thing I've noticed about Josie that's shown well in this bra is that the wires are very wide, but the cups are not very deep, but they're round.
-The cups are also pretty separate. It's a plunge style, but the wires start to curve up into a low center gore when they're still about 2 inches apart.
-One good thing about the bra is the comfort. Since the cup fabric is so soft, it doesn't irritate your skin too much. I wouldn't wear this for running errands or shopping as it isn't supportive enough, but maybe for watching movies or something else where you just want to sit around and be cozy.
-Another good thing is that the actual appearance (other than being a fake longline) is pretty cute and comes in lots of cool colors.
I wouldn't recommend this bra for close together boobs, boobs that project a lot, soft boobs, sub-32 bands, DD+ cups, or people who want a real longline.
I would recommend it to separate, wide root, flat boobs that fit in the lucky size range.
