Gore sits 1.5 fingers off sternum but otherwise the fit seems fine.

BM Croptop Topaz 60KK
This one is a standard full coverage, full lace BM, but with an extra lacey frill on the base of the band. The lace is a wonderful earthy brown with a beige lining. The gore has a small beige bow and a teardrop pearl dangly. I really love the color, and find it quite beautiful. As with all BMs, the top half of the cup is stretchy, while the bottom half is not, though it still has some give to the whole cup.
For the technical specifics:
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 22.4” and stretches to a max of 27.25” so it is nice and firm. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops which is standard for this size range.
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: 13”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
This measurement is: 16.25”
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.
The height is 9.75”, width is 6.25”, while the gore is 4” tall and ½” wide, with a 5” wing. These figures are about average for the size and style.
As for fit,
The lace on the cups of this one appear to be more stretchy than most of my BMs, while the band is firmer. This is the perfect combination for me right now so I am very happy with it. My breasts have been “possessed” lately and on a swelling spree (still not 100% convinced this is permanent new growth) so I was convinced that this one wasn’t going to fit. I was down to one 60KK BM that still fit (and only 2 bras total), but luckily for me, this one appears to have a more open top and a bit more give to the cups, so hopefully I can get a few wears out of it before it doesn’t fit, haha.
The gore sits 1.5 fingers off my sternum, which as long as it’s comfortable with all day wear, isn’t a fit issue for me. The base of the cups do feel a bit snug, but I am used to my cups stretching out a bit with wear, so I anticipate this to go away after a few wears, assuming my breasts do not grow again.
I should be past my low tide for the month, but still a good week away from high tide, so this is a perfect time of the month for fit assessments.
The band is comfy on the tightest hook-set, which is standard but was surprising since the max stretch from band tip to tip was 27.25”. I am okay with this, as I have yet to have an Ewa band stretch out on me, and I typically wear all my bras on the tightest hook-set from the start anyway.
I only had this one on for about 5 minutes to do a quick fit assessment, so if my initial fit feelings change after all day wear, I will update my review.
