This season of the year passes by under the charm of and charming colours – it is no different in today’s review: Lupoline longline is a sweet, sugary model that had it been released in white version would have been a wedding hit. I was charmed by its metallic lace and it became my must-have from the first glance. Any other fans of all that’s shiny here?

The bra is soft, without any corsetry foam. I really appreciate that, since there are so few soft longlines, especially in smaller sizes. Lace arrangement highlights cleavage and that looks great. If someone were asking about the colour – it’s exactly like in pictures.
Shaping leaves much to be desired – breasts basically just lie in cups, Lupoline neither rounds or raises them. The effect is unpretentious, but also bland. I would like this guy to try a little harder 😉
The front of the longline holds so strong that you get the feeling that you are tied in a real corset or that someone’s holding you tightly by the ribs … but this impression ends along the classic part of the band. The fastening is similar to that of the Von Follies, and unfortunately gives a little bit of a ham in a string effect. I would suggest going up one size with the cup and selecting a larger band because the width holds great and that way we will avoid the artificially created “rolls” on the back. Additionally, I feel like these elastic bands are extremely easy to wear out (not only in this model but generally) and it is going up with the band a little instead of straining the seams.
As you can see, depending on the amount and distribution of body fat and muscles on the back, the looks can vary. Before you ask – I stood straight to the photo, it’s just that my curvature of the spine makes it impossible to put on a bra like that straight. Unfortunately, the bottom elastic lies on my larger latissimus dorsi muscle. Woe upon you, scoliosis!
Cups are covered with a metalized lace in a shade that reminds me of raspberry yoghurt. Very sweet, especially when combined with cookie-like netting! This is definitely a model for girlish colour fans. It reminds me of the scene from Marie Antoinette film in which the title character ogles plates full of cookies, tarts, eclairs, etc. Yummy!
Is this one comfortable? Not for me, I will probably be putting it on only on special occasions, (when wearing transparent top so that the front of the bra can be seen). It does not dig in or cause any problems with everyday wear, but I would rather not go to sleep in it 😉 I had to take photos several times because the lacing of the circumference is the biggest problem; non-stop rolling up, although fortunately, it does not graze my skin. A deeper breath is enough to fold it in half on the seam.
We get to choose one two of types of panties for the set – I chose the classic lace brazilians. You will see the second type of panties – shorts – in Magda’s review, who will show herself to us in a model from the same series, but in a different cut!
This longline is a risky model – a lot of factors can make it look bad and most of them are outside of our control. The problem doesn’t lie with the product itself (although I think that a few elements could have been done better) and I would recommend it to girls with smaller band sizes who are generally slimmer than me. I’m concerned that for plump girls, myself included, this model will bring more headache than joy. So if you have a bit more inches in the back than I do – wait for Magda’s review; her version, which I reviewed last year, has a full back, and just as much of the lovely lace!
