We’ve reviewed the Maryjane and Mira longlines. Now it is time to review the Vega, which is known to run small in the cup. I will agree with that assessment, since it seems to be one cup-size down from an F. I think it has something to do with the way the material stretches – I’m pretty sure it only stretches in one direction. Anyway. Let us review what I’ve said of Fortnight so far, especially in relation to being short:
*Slightly androgynous appeal
*Band folds upwards if your belly is higher than the bra anticipates
Okay, so we have that down. Now, let’s look at the Vega, which I purchased as a 30F in a burnt orange/rust color. It’s one of my favorite colors, actually! I have a sweater and a dress in the exact same shade, so that’s something. This one also has my favorite band of the bunch, being thinner than the rest. With the other Fortnights, it sometimes feels like half my back is covered by the band. I can “breathe” better in this band.
Let’s study our specimen.
