Used to fit

BM Bibi Bianka has a 4 part balcony cut with the upper section being made of stretch lace. The straps are fully adjustable and it fastens with 4 rows of 3 columns of hooks.

The bra is quite pretty with the pearlescent white material and the small pearly pendant on the gore. Aesthetically, I don't think it's quite as nice as some of EM's other designs, but it's still up there compared to bras overall.

I've also tried the BM Szarotka, and I would say that compared to it, the stretch lace is thicker, but not quite as firm. My breasts are somewhat firm, but if you were softer on top, this may affect the fit.

I'm definitely a fan of the BM cut, and think it's a good option for people who want a lower gore, narrow wires, and have some upper fullness in their breasts in this size range.

This is a bra which Bratabase has marked as fitting for me, which is certainly no mean feat! The wires are suitably narrow, although they could be a smidge narrower, the cups are comfortably deep, and the band is comfortably snug on the tightest set of hooks, and I'd say this means it's quite a firm band, as my preferred stretched length is around 70cm.

I'd like to add a few caveats to this which aren't indicated by the fit criterion we use on the site. The cup is too tall, which is basically normal for me with my short rooted breasts, so there's empty space in the upper part of the cup, and the fabric comes up too high at the sides and so it rubs my armpits. Still, I could wear the bra as-is without any major issues.

Edit: After wearing the bra for some time, I can add some additional impressions to my review. I reduced the height of the cups slightly, and I also had to take the band in as despite initially being firm, the band quickly stretched out. It is to some extent a confusing bra, as I can't quite decide whether the bra is too small (I bulge a little in the centre), or too large in the cup (my breasts seem to sit a bit low and away from my chest). I also have a minor issue with the fact that the gore tacks in this bra, as my breasts are close-set to the point of touching so it lies on breast tissue. My biggest problem though is with the straps on this bra, which are woefully inadequate for the weight of my breasts, even with a firm band. They're not reinforced enough, and so they buckle and fold inwards, even when worn as loose as they can go. I have very high-set breasts and will often need to tighten straps most of the way, so this is clearly some sort of material issue. Aside from the straps, the bra is still comfortable and flattering to wear, and I should really just go and replace the bra straps with another pair out of my stash.
