BM Antonina in 60K and 60KK
I ordered this one in both 60K and 60KK during opening weekend to take advantage of the sale price. I am currently between these two sizes for Ewa’s BMs, so depending on the model, I can take either (or as it turns out, sometimes both!)
Now for the bra:
BM Antonina is a full lace cup & band BM style bra in an off white (with beige accents) lace and a darker tan opaque liner. The lace color is lighter than I thought it would be, while the liner is darker. It’s still nice, but not as appealing as the stock photos led me to believe it would be. The gore is covered with a sheer material, giving the illusion of a peekaboo gore without the instability that typically comes with one. The cup construction is the typical BM style, with 2 lower vertical sections (1 seam) and 1 upper horizontal section, with an outer wedge area that connects the straps to the cups securely. The upper horizontal section is always made of a stretch lace, and this particular model has the upper lace section lined as well, which can vary by model. This lining doesn’t provide bulk, just modesty so you can’t see the nipples through the bra but does not stop them from showing through a shirt on a cold day. The BM style bra is not padded and provides full and separated coverage.
The band on the 60K measured 22.875” and stretched to 29”, while the 60KK was 22.75” and stretched to 28.25”. While they should have the same give and take to the band, the 60KK definitely felt stiffer. Both bras came with the standard 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.
The cup width was 6” for both, with the height on the 60K was 9.5” and 60KK was 10.15”. The depth on the 60K had a conservative measurement of 12.25” (measured with the cup hovered between the knees and the tape measure placed into the cup without any resistance) and stretched over the knee to 15.5”, while the 60KK was 12.75” conservative to a max stretch of 16.5”. The gore is 4” tall and ½” wide for both.
When I measured these 2 bras, I was really leery about the 60KK fitting as it measured much larger than anticipated. Much to my surprise and delight, it does fit, and beautifully at that! Oddly, they both fit, except the 60K doesn’t tack, sitting about 2 fingers off my sternum, with the 60KK giving a soft tack. But the cups fit nicely otherwise and it is comfortable so both are keepers. And although the band on the 60K stretches further, it requires the middle setting for comfort, while the 60KK is comfy loose on the tightest setting…..But the most unique aspect of this bra is its gravity defying ability! It seriously lifts the breasts like no other bra I’ve tried and I now understand the Ewa Instagram photo of Gosik and Gosia in this bra! (If you’ve seen that photo, you’ll know what I mean.) This BM feels as soft as all my other BMs, but it is definitely more supportive and uplifting than the others. I am not sure why, but if I figure it out, I will update this review. ☺
