BM Czarny Tulipan 60L
Bibi Czarny Tulipan is a simple black half lace BM. It doesn’t have any lining, so it is thin yet supportive, and super comfortable. This is my second attempt at this bra, having it in 60KK as well. I ordered this one from MagdaBras4you. She is spectacular in her customer service!
Now for measurements-
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 21.63” and stretches to a max of 27”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.
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: 13.75”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
This measurement is: 16”
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.
This one also has the lazy J wires that are typically reserved for the SF style bras. This appears to make the straps more wider set than in the BMs with the usual U wires.
For other measurements, the width is 6.25” with a height of 10.63”, a wing of 4.75”, and a gore of 0.5” wide and 4.375” tall.
To compare, the 60KK has a 23”-30” band, with 6” wide cups, 10.25” tall, 12.25-15.25” depth, wing of 4.5” and gore with 0.5” width and 4.25” tall.
As for fit, it fits like my other 60L BMs, which is a bit more spacious than I need on most days, but since the 60KKs are too small, these work better at the moment. They are pain free and comfortable. The fit would look a bit better, but as you can see, I was slouching in the photos. :-/
As a photo compare can show, this one (and the white Bianka half lace BM) fit exactly the same as the 4 full lace BMs I own in the same size. All three BMs from this order measure 16.5” max depth, which is larger depth than my other 3 BMs which had a max depth of 15.5-16” but those had 6” wires.
There does seem to be a difference in fit between the Half Lace and Full Lace BMs in some other size ranges, but at this size, there is no difference noted.
