This bra is lovely. I wasn't into it at first and I didn't get it when Ewa had it, but then it sort of grew on me and I was sad I had missed it.
I ended up finding it in one of my wearable sizes at Brava. Thankfully, they ship to the US and I picked it up along with the matching bottoms in a size 36.

It came and I squealed when I opened the package, it is so pretty! It also inexplicably smells like Anthropologie. I can't describe the smell, but if you've ever been in an Anthropologie store, or had them ship you clothing from a retail location, you know the smell. Like their Volcano candle mixed with smoke. I don't know, but I love the smell so this isn't a bad thing to me!

It does measure out to be a 70F in depth, but it fits me like a 65F. The band is tighter than a 70, and measures 30" stretched. Depth is what it should be but I find the materials to be less stretchy than other BMs, so the measured unworn depth is what my 65F/70Es measure when they are on my body and the Sofia doesn't really stretch much when I put it on. Because it's firmer, the shape it gives is a little rounder than some other BMs and it looks quite nice I think.
The one concern I have about this is I bought this set to wear as a period set, as the crotch of the bottoms is black and I needed another BM in my larger size for hard and tender breasts. Since there's not much give in the cups I don't know if it'll work, it may be too firm for my comfort that time of the month but I'll have to wait to try.

The cups are a little high on me, but I'm functionally FoB with shallow upper root tissue so this isn't an unusual occurrence for me, there's just a single small wrinkle in the upper lace and it's not terribly noticeable without a top and not noticeable at all when dressed.

The lace is super pretty and I love the little polka dots in the pattern, they're a cute and playful touch on an otherwise sexier set. I also adore the back of the briefs, the lace on top of tulle is my favorite style second only to the double layer of tulle. What the underwear looks like will often determine if I buy a set or not and I love these ones. They only had a 36, with 38" hips I can sometimes make the 36 size work, usually if they are jersey knit, the mesh is a little snug just like the bra and I would prefer a 38. But, they don't look bad and they are comfortable so I'm content.

  • Jealous! Brava had one in 70G but by the time I made up my mind, it sold :(

  • Soooooo pretty!!!

  • What a gorgeous set! I love the detailing. It's a shame it doesn't have much stretch

    The lack of stretch might change my use of the set, but the shape is great because of it so I'm not *too* sad about it :)

    I just wanted to be sure to note it in case it comes back up for sale, I know there are many people that wear bras that wouldn't be able to work with such firm cups in this cut.

  • Thanks so much for your review. I’m more interested in this set now than I was before. I think I might have to keep my eyes open for it if it pops up somewhere. Looks perfect for me.

  • This is a pretty set :) I was wondering if the wires on this bra is still super stiff? I remembered when I tried 65E BM it was insanely hard wires, but I got my friend some 75FF's and they were only moderately hard.

    Noob They are hard, but not anywhere near as hard as the 65E Miętusek that I think we both tried.

    Oh my. I just looked up Miętusek. That's a gorgeous one. Swoon. Love green.
