Fits

I am a sucker for lacey nude bras. When I saw this model, I knew I would have to buy it. It is both practical and sexy. While the lace is quite intricate, it does lay flat under t-shirts and passes the white t-shirt test. I've included a photo of the bra under a white t-shirt to illustrate its functionality as a nude bra.

There is not much data about this bra - or the M Scarlett (same style but in red lace) in the upper limits of the size range despite it being an older model. So, of course, I had to order it from MagdaBras4you for bra science. Magda as always is a pleasure to work with and her prices (shipping in particular) are significantly cheaper than direct orders of padded bras for Canadian girls.

The fit of this bra is identical to the 65FF M Carmen. TLDR - it has narrow, deep cuts, great immediate projection, a low gore and gives a rounded, yet, natural shape.

The band on this bra, like the M Carmen, fits functionally as 60. This band is slightly shorter and fits perfectly firm on my 27" ribcage. This bra has a full lace band which makes it firmer than the mesh band of the XOXO and the mesh lace band of the Carmen. Sonya if you did order this bra - I think you will love the band. Ladies who need a true 65 band will want to size up to a 70.

Once again, I am delighted by the M cut. It is an unsung hero for ladies with mid-range busts and small rib cages.

  • It's beautiful, and looks like a great match for your skin tone.

  • This looks amazing on you- beyond gorgeous! What a perfect nude for you! I am so happy I ordered this one.

  • Sonya I thought of you when it arrived today! I think you are going to love it. The band is just heaven.

  • So gorgeous!!! So gorgeous.

    I wonder if they'd do a 70FF for me? Hmmm. My 65S fits great though, so I'd be reticent to experiment with non-returnables.

    AprilGoulding I wonder if EM would do a 65G S for you in this lace? Perhaps Magda can convince them

    Wilderness1 have you tried an m? I wonder if it would work on you? We seem to have a similar shape

  • rachaelll I found the M to be a bit pointy on me. Of course, when I tried it, I was also between sizes, so maybe in a smaller size it wouldn't have looked quite so pointy. I didn't mind it, but it wasn't my most favorite shape. Ewa Michalak bras are hit and miss with me, largely because I'm in between sizes. The BM in 65FF worked out well, but if I lose any weight between now and when it arrives (in like 2 months), it will probably start looking pointy on me too. Ah sigh. I do love EM bras but they don't always love me.

    Wilderness1 I have a 70F M Syrena if you ever want to try it on

  • rachaelll thanks for the kind offer, but the M I had was a 70F also.

  • Love how it looks on you!

  • You look wonderful in it!🌻
    Thank you for the opportunity to cooperate.
    I am always ready to help.
    Girls, are we making another group order? Are they willing?

  • Do you find that it is tighter than your xoxo? Stretched band on the xoxo was 28” and here it is 26” or so, so even smaller than a 60 which should be a 28 UK equivalent. I think that I would definitely need at least a 70, possibly 75, depending upon the band construction. I know that she’s mentioned that the bands run small and tight with the M, so if that’s the case, why does she not fix it? She’s the designer. Doesn’t she have a say? Just random thoughts.

  • Calluna the band on the perlowy feels firmer and is shorter than both the XOXO and Carmen even though the unstretched measurement is the same. It is a full lace band with powermesh underneath. I suspect that in layering these fabrics, the total stretch capacity of the band is reduced. Powermesh usually has a 40 - 30% stretch capacity, but when layers this can be significantly reduced depending on the stretch direction and capacity of the layered lace fabric. The lace on the Carmen appears to be a light mesh lace rather than the heavier lace on the perlowy. The Carmen lace likely has greater stretch - making that band slightly longer. The Xoxo and Syrena have just a single layer of powermesh for the band.

    I wonder if in part the firmness of the band is purposeful on EM's part. Given that this cut is designed for petite women with small to medium busts, perhaps there are a number of customers who like me want a 60 band and are happy to purchase a 65 rather than order a custom bra.
