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).
