Didn't fit

Based on other people's review of Kleks, I wasn't exactly expecting good things, especially since I'm having fit issues with my 65JJ EM already. For the most part, the bra really wasn't a bad fit, but I'm noticing more and more, that my tissue on my larger side (left side) isn't contained under my arm pit area. I'm not really sure what that means in terms of fit though. Maybe the cup isn't high enough if that makes sense? Otherwise, I don't mind the bra. I don't have quadding. It isn't uncomfortable to me, but I can tell that it's going to be too small when my breasts swell. If I had tried this bra on a couple of days ago, it would have been a nightmare.

    Tail of spence area? Or under the arm?

    The joys of our hormonal cycles and the highs and lows they create in our cups! This one also looks great on you, so I hope you will at least be able to wear it on low tide days. :-/

    I'm not sure what you mean in terms of tail of spence. I'm talking about under my arm where my tissue sits funny. It's way more noticeable in my Rubin review, but I can see it with Kleks and with my Topaz. It's almost like the underwire isn't coming up high enough for me or something.

    MamaPagan hey thanks. I think I'm going to keep this one and hope it does work for low tide days. I just find it odd how a J cup works better than my JJ cup

    Tail of spence is the "fat" area near the strap. That generally doesn't go in the cup. I wasn't sure if you meant the front of your armpit or the side.

    Sovavosi Ah gotcha! That makes sense thanks for clarifying :) I meant the side--sorry for the confusion!

    I understand DerangedDragons19. Sometimes Ewa constructs her bras differently so a smaller cup can fit better (even when it measures smaller than a larger cup that is too small) so it really racks the brain. I always try to keep in mind that the cups are 3D, our boobs are 3D, and our measurements of both are linear so they don't always mesh perfectly into our ideas of logic.

    It could be that there is more lower space below the apex, or the top lace is more open or stretchy, or a combination of both.

    I have gotten a few bras (BM Kawa for example) where the 60K measured larger than the 60KK, so sometimes you get a rouge seamstress that makes the bras to the wrong scale.

    MamaPagan You know, that makes a lot of sense to me. Adding another axis to our linear thinking could definitely account for some error. Heck, there's no telling if I measured 100% correctly either.

    Also two other good points. I'm not complaining though hahah

    Take the same bra and measure it daily for a week, I guarantee you'll get slightly different results each time, haha! That's the human factor at play! :-D

    MamaPagan Absolutely true! Sidenote, you know how you and just about everyone else says that EM bands never stretch out.. well I measured my Sofia and it has stretched over 2 inches... Do you suppose that's because it was basically my only bra in rotation?

  • Wow, 2"? Yes, with heavy rotation it would result in more body oils on the elastic and stretching. I typically have a good 2 weeks or more of bras so they get a large break in between.

    MamaPagan oh boo :( rotten luck for me. I would seriously have loved to have it in my rotation, but I don't think I can really wear it much anymore due to the band riding up so much. Heavy sigh.

    You can always alter it down. There's a few ways of doing it, and also the Rixie clip option too. Don't give up hope just yet!

    True, true. I might have to look into some options I suppose.

    Let me know if you want any walk throughs on the ones I know of.

    Will do! :)
