I'm generally not a fan of black bras--I find them incredibly boring. I want to say Czarny Tulipan needs huge big pink bows or something, but I guess that would take away from its simplicity (still I'm considering sewing a huge big pink bow on it...)

It's a very elegant, comfortable bra in the Bibi line of half-lace BMs. Half lace BMs are my summer perfection. I've been looking at the bras I bought and I'm thinking, this is all fine because it's winter right now, but what happens in the summer? Cause bulky lacy bras seem to not be very optimal for the heat we get here (35+ C in July). But the half lace BMs actually are just a single layer of satiny material and some stretch lace on top. Perfect.

However, because of that, they might not be a good fit to some. Full lace BMs have another layer of mesh under the lace to sort of give some shape to the breast, and then on top of it, additional shaping is provided by the lace. For a non padded bra, it's a fair amount of structure. With half-lace BMs, that element is gone. I think most really bad fits with BMs I've seen have been with the half-lace BMs exactly.

But anyway. This bra is essentially the same as my 70G - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Beżowa Perła (533), however, it runs smaller in the cup (and it shows). On my larger side in the photos you can clearly see where the seam cuts in. It's nothing special, no big deal, but a thing to note. From experience, this will stretch out and fit a little better after some wear. It's how it was with Bezowa Perla as well.
The wires are wire perfection.
I wonder if the reason this and Fuksja run small in the cup is because of the black dye... it makes the fabrics less stretchy or something. I think that would make sense. Kaska said she has no idea why they run smaller in the cup, just that they do.

And yes, I do have a Fuksja in the same size on the way...

    I read somewhere black dye resulted in smaller and less stretchy fabric.

    Yes, same! I don't have the red or the white, but the beige doesn't run small at all.

    I really want one of these. I do love a nice black simple but elegant bra. That’s why I love my S Szykus so much. Simple yet elegant.

    Yes it has classic elegance, if you will. Very pretty.

    It's funny, but I have the half lace BMs in Black, White, Red, & Fuksja and they all fit the same. They are slightly smaller than my full lace BMs but definitely not a half cup smaller. It's really more of a feeling like their upper lace is slightly more hugging/less open than most of the full lace ones. At least that's what I've experienced anyway!

    Comme all the black bras on the planet. I'll take them all lol i love them.
    Gorgeous. I guess a half lace is on my list now....

    It should be! They're definitely the best of BMs!

    I second that comnent brasaremean. They are bra perfection! I can't wait for the new pinstripe one to come out next year..... I do wonder what color it will be. Hopefully they will post Instagram photos of it soon.

  • I hope no white :(

  • I would love a blue one, but figuring it will most likely be black or white. Honestly I am good with any color as long as it's the half lace BM!!

    I'll agree with that sentiment brasaremean I do not like white undergarments. I've only owned one white bra and not because I wanted to but because it was available, lol

    Especially in the summer white bras are pretty much useless to me! You can't really wear them under anything.

    MamaPagan we just gotta keep an eye out on their IG maybe we get a tease of the pinstripe bra.

    i think years ago there was some, let me find it.
    Ewa Michalak Bm Groszki (661)
    Ewa Michalak Bm Tajemniczy Ogród (872)
    Ewa Michalak Bm Szarotka (560)

    I'd kill for these. Especially Groszki and Szarotka!

    Totally agree on the white which is why I was hesitant to try Lucy from amazon...only white in my size. But I’ve found a red Lucy which is better and is supposed to be good for under white shirts (not like I have any, really).

  • I would gladly welcome them all brasaremean! ! :-D

    I would choose black over white hands down, yet white over beige. To me beige just amplifies my spotchy skin. Brown and Tan I love, but beige, not so much.

    Oh gosh, the band on this is a real issue. It's giving me no support whatsoever, I had to put it on tightest hookset otherwise the cups completely collapse on me.
    I sent an email to Kaska to change my Fuksja to 65GG, hopefully it's not too late.

  • Fingers crossed she can change it in time for you!
