Used to fit

BM Baklazan 60KK

BM Baklazan is a fuller coverage, full lace unpadded bra with stretch lace on the upper section. The cups are the typical 3 sections-2 lower and one upper horizontal area, plus it has an outer wedge area that connects the cups to the straps securely. The color is classified as burgundy on Ewa’s site, though I’d call it more of a dark purple than a red. It is similar to Porto but without the reddish tones. The underside is black, but the stretch lace on the top of the cups is not lined at all.

All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band measurements for the same reason.

The band measures 22.875” and stretches to a max of 28.25”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops. The band is a full lace band, and is as typical for Ewa lace bands, with less stretch.

Cup Depth as measured by:
1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
This measurement is: 12.75”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
This measurement is: 16.5”

I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.


As for fit, the band feels beautifully snug on the tightest hook-set, and I could most likely wear it on the middle setting which is nice. The cups had me a bit worried during measurements as they are super stretchy, but fit perfectly, and the gore is only 1 finger off my sternum which is about as good at it gets for me so I’m happy.

I also ordered the matching briefs, in a size 38 (10) as it was the smallest one available. It measures 69cm flat to a max of 100cm, which is a bit stretchy for the targeted hip range of 91-96cm. It is comfortable though so I’m fine with it.

    I'm jealous of how tall the cups are. In the one I got I felt like I need just a teensy tiny bit more to get optimal coverage, but oh well.

    Do you feel like the lace on this one is softer and stretchier and more quad-prone than other EM bras?

  • Yes, the lace is super stretchy!
    And yes, in cup quadding could be an issue. You can see in the angled from below photo, the horizontal seam on the cup does cut in, but I don't think it's going to be an issue under clothing though, so I didn't mention it.
    :-)

    It is not an issue under clothing at all (and it's nowhere near close to the Ellace, like not even in the same neighborhood). I was just surprised she didn't line the lace with the stretchy tulle when it's so soft!

  • I have a few that aren't lined, though less stretchy. BM Bibi Black, SF Szaron, SF Royal Blue, all the half lace BMs but none of them are an issue for sure.

    How do you like Royal Blue? When I was originally looking at SFs that's the one I was gonna get.

  • It was my first new Ewa bra (ordered from Zathiya with S XoXo) so it was a 70JJ. When the cups fit, it was great, but the lace is much more fragile than most of Ewa's bras. Ewa saidna solid and firm no to a 60L in that one so I haven't ordered it again since the sister size would be a 60KK and the cups too small.

    That being said, I'd order up if you get it, as mine ran small in comparison *assuming* sister sizing would equate across two bands.

    Since I was transitioning from a 32G/30GG that was several cups too small at the time, the band felt good. :-D

    Ugh...want so bad. The colour is so beautiful. Though I'm worried about the in cup quadding and coverage. I'm thinking that I would need the 65F over the 65FF but not sure.

    Sorry for the double comments. I got a little jumpy with my thumb. 😂

    If only I had the money. I'm looking at getting a Cabernet from Broad Lingerie so I might be able to try both of the first one doesn't fit.

    Sending well wishing for unexpected wealth your way Calluna <3

    It's hard right now until my husband's PR card is renewed and he can work again. As it is, it's $125 CAD for the Cabernet if I order from Broad Lingerie unless they have a BF sale. It's a bit more expensive, but it's also a Canadian shop that I can return to if it doesn't fit, which is important for a style that I've never tried. I'm not sure how cheaper it would be to order directly, but I would have to ship to a friend in the states and then to me to avoid DHL. There's just so many charges, that I don't know how much a Baklazan or Porto would be on the end.

    Did you check with Jaimie at Bra Obsessed? For some bras it only says she has one or two sizes but if you e-mail her and ask she might have more (she only had BM Fioletowy listed in 75F but I emailed her and asked and she had a 70FF which wasn't listed on the website).

    I paid CAD115 with shipping to New Jersey.

  • Calluna, no worries! There are plenty of Ewa options for this style regularly, plus the Black Friday sale right is around the corner, so no rush on buying! When you have the funds, something perfect in your size will be available I'm sure. :-)

    I have not asked Jamie. Not a lot on the site in my size, but I can try to email. Good idea. And yeah, I can wait until I the funds...only, you know...I can't wait. 😂 I need more bras that fit!

  • Sorry :-(
