Fortnight Luna Longline

Hi, everyone!

Fortnight’s spring collection was one that I loved instantly.  The muted tones and understated appearances called to me in a way that few collections have. All of the pieces were timeless and classic, but one stood out among the rest: the Luna longline.

I don’t know what it is about it, but I love the look of it. As soon as I saw it, I went straight down to my favorite lingerie shop in Toronto, called Secrets From Your Sister (side note: if you’re in the Toronto area, stop by for a fitting, they carry an amazing selection and have a lot of really excellent fitters) and bought it.

I’ve had positive past experiences from Fortnight, and the Luna was no exception. I think the Luna and the Mira are my two favorite styles; but the Luna is more closed-on-top than the Mira, and is closer to the Vega in terms of fabric. Strong powermesh makes up the cups and a silky blue fabric comprises the underbust.

The bra disappears under clothes, so much so that I forget that I’m wearing it. The wireless aspect makes it that much better, making for a happy lingerie addict.

The cups are firmer than those on the Mira, and perhaps a bit less soft as a result. They also fit a bit smaller in a 30DD than my other bras, as I’m more of a 30D nowadays. The 30D was a touch too small, though the fit lines are a bit blurred with wireless bras.

The best part of Fortnight bras are how versatile they are. I’ve worn my Luna with a high-waisted skirt or jeans on a few occasions, and received compliments. The bra doesn’t look like typical underwear, so I found it a lot easier to get away with wearing it as a top than other longlines.

One thing I will note is that the seams stick out a bit, but that doesn’t bother me, and it isn’t very noticeable under a tight shirt.

The band is a typical Fortnight 30, meaning it’s about a size more snug than the label reads.

Give the Luna a try if you’re on the shallow side, or don’t have a lot of centre fullness. Due to the closed-on-top nature, someone who’s got a fuller bust might find it cuts in a bit.

I’m extremely happy with the Luna and will definitely be buying more in the future. As to how Fortnight keeps coming out with such excellent lingerie is a mystery to me, but I’m not complaining (though my wallet might be).

Have you tried Fortnight? What did you think? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

  1. Thank you again for this wonderful & insightful review! <3 The Luna is one of the few longline styles I've yet to try, and I was wondering if you ultimately purchased the 30D or 30DD in this style? I've often read it runs small-ish but I'm just not sure if I should size up or not. Is it more similar to the Vega or Mira in terms of fit? Sorry for all the questions!

    1. How sweet of you to say :’) The Luna is my favorite longline style to date, and I wound up buying the 30DD. To be fair, I didn’t try the 30D (it wasn’t in stock), but the 30DD fits pretty close to perfectly. They initially had me in a 30E, but I requested they bring the cup size down as I found it to be too wide. The fit is closer to the Vega, I would say, because where the Mira has elastic on the edge of the cups, the Luna/Vega have a slightly stiffer, thicker elastic, which cuts into your boobs if you’ve got some fullness towards the centre. I think the cups of the Luna are also a bit more shallower than the Mira. My recommendation is to order your Vega size, but definitely order both just to be sure. 🙂
