Fortnight Mira Longline - A Review

Review of Fortnight Mira Longline bra

I am still looking for some wireless bras as my Freya Deco Soft Cup bra is getting too shallow, and the OnGossamer Cabana Cotton Modal Wire-Free bra was a disaster shapewise. I still want something more immediate projection without being actually projected. Although I have never spent more than $60 on a bra before, I decided to bite the bullet and try the Fortnight Mira Longline as it seemed to be comfortable and offer the shape I want. I ended up plunking down $110 for a 30D bra that was Made in Canada.

Band Size: Fine. It's a 30 band that feels like a 30 band but rides up in the back a bit. I was surprised that it actually stretched to 32".

Cup Size: Great. This bra runs true to size in the cup.

Cup Shape: Good, but could be a bit better. This bra has just barely enough immediate projection, and has broad and tall cups. It's definitely more comfortable than a wired bra but I was expecting more from a wireless bra. The lace band and the wide straps make it less comfortable. Still, it is not more uncomfortable than the Freya Deco Soft Cup.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Good, but could be a bit better. It's a wireless bra so it doesn't have underwire issues at the gore. The cup spacing could be a tad more far apart though.

Color: Great. I love the ivory color.

Verdict: This bra gets an 80% rating. While it offers enough immediate projection, it's only just barely. It is great if you have moderate or mild shallowness and are not FOB. It's also great if you have average projection and are not FOB. Great for broad and tall roots. I do wish the band were not lacy and the straps were thinner. If I don't find a better longline I might get this same bra in black.

In the future I might get the Dreams and Underthings Bralette and see what happens.
