Long line bras certainly have an old fashioned or retro look about them, but the fact is that they are still sold today and while they've lost some of their popularity, they're a hit with certain niche markets.
Here's a little something from Big Girl Bras, a site specializing in bras and other things for larger girls, that offers a nice explanation about long line bras:
What is a Longline Bra?
There's also follow up sections to the subject called Who Should Wear a Longline Bra, When to Wear a Longline Bra and Our Favorite Long Line Bras.Do you have trouble with strapless bras 'sliding down' under the weight of your bust? Have a great dress you're dying to wear but you don't have the right bra? Want to look a little slimmer and more fit under your clothes? Check out the longline bra - it might be the answer to your problems!A longline bra is an extended coverage bra that starts at your breasts, and typically goes down your stomach to end a few inches above your belly button. Longline bras come in different lengths, but they all extend down below where a traditional bra band would stop.Longline bras are great for women who want more support for their busts, and they're often worn under formal and evening wear.Women who have a hard time finding strapless bras that provide enough support for an ample bosom may find a perfect solution in a longline bra, because the extended structure of these bras helps to absorb some of the weight of the bust and provide support without slipping down under the weight of the breasts.
The site offers 43 different types of longline bras to choose from. With such a selection, there's obviously a market for them today. i'll be that market isn't just from women and girls, but from some of us gurls as well!
And of course, i'd be remiss if i didn't at least share with you my own personal favorite from the Big Girls Bras site. i had a tough time making my decision, but this cute Carnival Bridal Splendor in Satin Torselette won out. Maybe it was the heavy bridal emphasis that caught my eye. But i do enjoy the fitted corset-like look, the satin and the detachable and adjustable garters.
Wouldn't it look just dreamy with a pretty pair of lace top thigh highs and some sexy white heels?
Just thinking of it makes me dreamy as i head to Jake's for some housecleaning and an afternoon of fun....just hope my spanking isn't a real hard one!
