Used to fit

**So, I've got a huge update for everyone. Turns out this is too big for me by about 2 cups, possibly three! I discovered this while at work today when the bottom of that elastic band kept rolling up under the wires and then sticking between my ribs. 10/10 would NOT recommend doing this to yourself ever.
This rolling caused my cups to collapse and get pinched under the wires as well, all while my band stayed in my IMF zone. Very, very painful. I've never worn or owned a sports bra that was wired OR padded, so I misunderstood how to gauge the fit. I stand by the quality and materials and such, so I'm definitely going to give this a try in a smaller size, possibly the 65KK.**




Kris Line's new athletic line popped up on Zulily a couple of weeks ago, and I figured "What the heck?" and took the plunge. After reading reviews about how small the cup ran via Brastop, I opted to try the 65M, a cup size up from what MagdaBras4you and I were guesstimating I would wear in their soft cup size. I am not disappointed.

I was super nervous when I took it out of the box, guys. Seriously. I haven't had a properly fitting sports bra probably ever, and my heart was pounding! I got even more nervous because it felt pretty heavy? It was weird. The material was so soft though. It looked HUGE too!

It took me a little bit of time to measure it and such, and then on it went! I'll be honest, there might have been some tears. Never have I ever felt secure in a sports bra before that moment. The shape was pretty fantastic, not that I would have been terribly bothered either way. The support and lift this bra provides is pretty astounding. The straps are thick, which I think will help with them not digging in as I workout. The jump test passed with flying colors. While there was some jiggle, my tissue stayed quite secure. I'm sure I was smiling like an idiot the entire time I attempted this feat.

I do have some qualms with the bra, no matter how much I'm raving about it:

-The straps are difficult to adjust. I don't know if this was a sewing issue or whatnot, but mine look like they're almost twisted under the adjuster. I tried to adjust the fabric so it laid flat, but I think the width of the material is too wide for the adjuster. Not sure, will update if I manage to fix it.

-Because the straps are difficult to adjust, the J-Hook is kind of sitting awkward on me. I'm not sure if I like where it is placed. It might make some exercises difficult because the hook might dig. Think sit-ups/crunches.

-When the j-hook is connected, the armpit curve sits quite high. I anticipate rubbing. I'm hoping since the material is soft, it's not going to be awful.

Overall, while I haven't actually done a full workout or anything in it, I anticipate good results. I'm hoping it's going to be as fantastic as I'm imagining in my head. Haha.

I want to put a sidenote: while I have the gore measured at 5", that's actually where the underwires end. There's a mesh material that's sewn to the tops of the cups that I believe is intended to help with airflow, if you catch my drift haha. This mesh part goes up another 3", so the gore is actually 8" total.

Ooh, also, I'm wearing this bra on the third hookset.

    Woohoo honey! I am so happy for you. 💙💜💚 Now I am second guessing my plan for ordering the 65KK from MagdaBras4you when it comes available.....but 65M sounds too big too/for me.... 😬 Eek!

  • 1

    MamaPagan Magda was guessing my size at a 65L. Since we're essentially the same size and since the cups seem to run small, I don't think you're going to have an issue with the 65M, but if you're worried about it, maybe opt for the 65L instead. I think based on other people's reviews that the 65KK will be too small for you :O

  • 1

    Also thanks 😁

  • 1

    Based on the depth measurements of this one, maybe. I might go with two then- 65LL and 65M to play it safe and compare. Maybe there will be less bounce with a 65LL. (It still sounds crazy huge though!)

  • 2

    That looks great, and I love the name! I need one of these!

  • Make sure you size up Sovavosi. 😬

  • 1

    MamaPagan Just try and remember that Kris Line has weird sizing. An M cup is more equivalent to Ewa's KK cup I believe? I hope I'm converting that correctly in my head buahaha

  • Sovavosi Thanks; yes you do! It's fab!

  • Ah I was wondering if these are wired. Might be worth a shot then!

  • 1

    Size up? I was going to get the 65J or 65JJ, based on the measurement chart.

  • DerangedDragons19 possibly in theory, but the 60L Betty fits like the 60KK Ewa so.......inconsistencies or variations due to Sports Bra?

  • brasaremean Yep! It's underwired :)

  • 1

    Sovavosi I did at least. Brastop had reviews saying the cup ran anywhere from 1-3 cups small :o

  • 1

    MamaPagan Maybe both? I really think the M would work for you :)

  • 2

    Small because it's small at the apex or short? It doesn't look that short.

  • 2

    Sovavosi, sorry but I can't answer that with confidence. Reviews literally just said cups ran small

  • 2

  • 1

    How weird. I don't know if that would apply to me though!

  • 2

    Sovavosi Very! It's tough to say. I feel like I got pretty lucky though haha. 🤷

  • 2

    Sovavosi based on the similarity in size between DerangedDragons19 and knowing you are typically a cup to 2 cups down from me depending on style, I wouldn't think you would want smaller than a 65L honestly. Definitely not below a 65KK based on our lovely friend"s fit here. Compression pain reasons alone. 😬

  • 2

    That seems so big 😰

  • 2

    I think MamaPagan is right, Sovavosi. I'd say maybe TRY the 65KK if you're worried about the "big" factor and then take it from there 🤷

  • 2

    DerangedDragons19 just pointed out to me that KL doesn't do a LL cup, haha so the M doesn't sound quite as crazy. 😄 Where did I see the LL?!? Ewa confusion I guess!

  • 2

    MamaPagan It's tough to keep all the lettering and sizing correct for each brand :p

  • Indeed!

  • 2

    Oh my gosh!!! I'm so happy for you!! It's so great that this fits..hmm I was thinking of trying a 65KK but I guess i'll have to size up now

  • 1

    Hey thanks!

    Absolutely size up Frazzleberry
    I seriously believe you're at least a cup size bigger than me. I'd try the 65N if I were you. 🙃😁 If you play it safe, the 65M might fit, but I fear you might have quadding

  • 1

    I second that 65N Frazzleberry. Size up!!

  • 2

    Haha, MamaPagan & DerangedDragons19 I don't think I'm that brave to size up to an N, it sounds big. Lol.

    Technically my perimeter measurements are smaller than you both (even though measurements capture the bigger picture sometimes). I've also been having a rotten luck with cup depth measurements for the bras I've recently measured..so who knows really 😅

    I'll probably have to try a few more duds before I decide to take the plunge

  • 3

    Frazzleberry oh love :( you're looking at the cup letter and automatically thinking, "WHATTT?! NO WAY!" when in all reality, my 65M KL transfers, roughly into an Ewa 65L. (Boy do I hope I'm coverting that right for you guys) That's really not bad, or far off, from what you're trying. I only sized up the cup because other reviewers said to do so. I feel like you would be pleasantly surprised with a 65N.

    Meh. You've gotten rogue bras. Don't let it discourage you ❤️

  • 3

    Frazzleberry Just think of it this way. If it's too big at least it will be wearable in the future while too small is just plan painful.

    We'll see ;) it all depends on how I feel on the day I'm ordering.. it would be great if I could find a relatively cheap stock somewhere to try though..

    How are the cups structured btw? Is it cushiony like panache's sports bra or more similar to Freya's?

    Not discouraged DerangedDragons19 just a bit wary, considering I haven't tried a "true" 60KK and 65K (aside from my Perla). Thanks though :)

  • 1

    Frazzleberry, I know through Magda, you'd get their sports bras quite bit cheaper than I paid 😬

    I don't know how to answer this question. I never tried Panache or Freya. All I know is that it's like a heavier, padded material that almost conforms to my tatas :) I'd put it on par with more of a cushiony feeling :p

    True, but judging by your Perla, you would have needed to have sized up anyway 😁

  • 2

    Haha that is true.. A 65K in EM is equivalent to arround an L maybe? (Honestly my previous KL fit was so weird I didn't even bother to try again. I think it was a mix of shape mismatch and size issues, maybe?)

    Oh that's no problem. The cushiony feel, sounds more like around a panache, which is really great cuz I loved the feel of that one.

  • 3

    The possibility of a good sports bra is quite a lure though

  • 2

    I’m really confused on Kris Line sizes. I’d also like a sports bra or three that aren’t 32 bands 😜

  • 2

    Mmm, I want to say yes, but I can't say it with much certainty buahhaha. I truly don't really know.
    When I ordered a soft cup from Magda, we thought it best I try the KL 65L, which I believe she said was equivalent to the 65K EM. So I can infer that the 65M here is about a 65KK EM, or 60L EM.
    I think the band on this runs slightly in between a 60 and true 65 band. :)

    Isn't it though?! Never hurts to give it a whirl :)

  • 2

    This looks and sounds fantastic! Thanks for the great review. I was really curious how these would be when I was looking through their catalog.

  • 1

    veggiechic Hey no problem. I'll update it more as I actually get to exercise in it and such. I'm hoping for good things, and with how it feels, I can say with a little certainty that at least trying them is a good choice :)

  • 2

    I went ahead and edited my review everyone!

  • 1

    Oh no! That sounds so uncomfortable! Hoping you can find the right size since it seemed so promising at the start.

  • 3

    It was horribly uncomfortable 😭
    I think once I get the right cup size, it'll be fantastic 😙 here's to being hopefully at least!

  • 1

    I hope you find the right one soon! :)

  • 1

    Sorry honey. :-(

    Hopefully Magda will be able to get them soon so we all can give them a try.

    At least your experience will help us with sizing choices as well. For that, we thank you. 💙

    Thanks everyone.

    Indeed MamaPagan. There's always that to look forward to now! 😙
