Jasmine reviews the Goddess Keira Longline bra for bigger busts

I was starting to think that trying to find a nice longline bra that fits anything bigger than a D cup was like trying to find the holy grail. I constantly saw and lusted after these amazing long line bras by brands like Rago etc and whilst they easily fit my band and waist size, the cups always stopped at a D……

So when by pure chance browsing the online store Her Room,  I came across the Goddess Keira Longline Soft Cup Bra… I was taken aback.

Had my search come to an end? Had I found the mythical Longline in my size..?

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.42.44 pmNow needless to say I was very hesitant..will it fit? My waist is quite a bit smaller than my hips so will it dig in? Will it ride up? And my biggest hesitation…..I am usually a 38G to GG….. in a SOFT CUP….. yeah.. wearing a bra without underwire is just not something I would normally do.

When the Keira arrived and I rushed home to try it on all I can say is …IT WORKS !!!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.43.37 pmIt fits, it smoothes and most importantly keeps the girls aloft and supported. The back fits firmly and helps smooth out those annoying back bulges, it is a leotard style back so the straps do not budge or slip.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.43.45 pmMy bra size varies depending on brand and in this I ordered a 40G. It comes in quite a lovely range of sizes from 36 to a 54 and in the cup range B through to a G.

Her Room had two colour choices, Fawn and Black. I as usual, went for black.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.44.06 pmThe fit is good, I could have it be a little firmer right under my bust but I think the 40 is a good overall fit considering the bra comes all the way down to wear my waist flares back out.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.44.19 pmConstruction wise, the longline bra is made of a mix of stretch satin and powernet to give a firm but soft feel. It is lovely and soft against the skin.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.44.41 pmThe cups are a three part construction that helps support the breast very nicely even without underwire. It is a full bust coverage and has a small sheer inlay at the very top.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.44.53 pmThe straps are nice and wide and very supportive; no scratchy lace edges either so no painful digging in.

The body of the Longline is as I said, a mix of powernet and stretch satin. The satin is double layered in the centre panel.

There are two light metal bones in the back and sides for extra support and stability. They sit very nicely against the body and do not dig in uncomfortably after wearing for over 10 hours on a number of occasions. The side seam boning is 9.5 inches tall and the back boning is 9 inches tall.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.45.11 pmIt fastens with 8 or 9 hooks on the back depending on the size you order. The one I ordered has 9, the hardware is the same colour as the bra so it blends in seamlessly.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.45.29 pmThe whole thing is finished with a two-inch thick elastic under-band provides stability.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.45.38 pmSo what do I think overall? It is a great bra. I love the look on, it is really pretty and has a great shape. It fits me well and supports my G cups very well.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.45.57 pmIt provides a really nice vintage silhouette under clothes without being way too pointy (as much as I love extreme bullet bras, on me it would look like I had traffic cones strapped to my chest). This bra however works a treat. Here are two outfits I was wearing it under.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.46.55 pmI will still keep my eyes peeled for other mythical longlines in a cup size bigger than a D cup but for now I am content with this wonderful find.
