Didn't fit

This bra I had ordered from MagdaBras4you to try a half lace BM. This was one of the ones caught up in the "we are too busy to ship them right now" Ewa issue. I feel like because of that, this bra is rather poorly constructed. I will compare this to BM Fluo, which is my best fitting BM.

The band on Perla is 29.5" long, which is not the longest 60 band I've ever received from Ewa, but is too big to be wearable. I can get away with 29" sometimes on the tightest/second tightest hooks but the band will still ride up. For contrast, Fluo is 27" long. I've read that Fluo was considered tight by many, but I prefer having my bands shorter than average rather than longer.

The cup width on Perla is 6.5" wide vs Fluo's 6.125" wide. I prefer a 6" wide cup. At 6.5" wide, my tissue splays to the side and I can't fill the cups. In addition, the wires do not completely fill the channel. The wires in this one seem to be the Nike swoosh wires that are normally used in the SF cut. There is .5" of empty space at the top of the channel on each side.

The cup height on Perla is 10", Fluo is 9.375". 10" high seems to be the new standard for the 60K BMs I have received, and this is too tall for my sloping roots. I can fill the bottom but not the top, and I get no lift out of this bra when these super tall cups are combined with the wide wires.

The wings and gore are higher than Fluo. I think this would be a problem if I could actually wear the bra, but they did not bother me as I only tested it out for a few minutes.

I am done buying BMs for a while because I keep getting bras that will never fit me. It's gone from my best fitting bra to my worst, and I am sadder for it.

    Oh,I'm sorry ... it's hard for me to read it!

    The lazy J wires! I love them in the SF but they throw the fit off when used in the BMs. I have experienced the same issue so I know exactly what you mean.

    I am sorry this was such a poorly made bra. It is so frustrating, and I feel your pain. Big hugs honey, as I know how much money you have lost on poorly constructed bras.

    It's okay. I feel like I'm beating a dead horse at this point writing about it, but I figured this post might help someone else at some point.

    Ahh geez, that's really disappointing. :( I'm so sorry this was such a bad experience. It makes it all the worse knowing how far it came to get to you and how long you had to wait for it. Believe me, I've been there, done that.
    Put it up as a listing here and see if someone else could use it. At the very least you'd get some of your money back, and someone else may find it fits them.
    I also find that listing Ewas on eBay works, as well. It's worth a shot!

    Oh my...So Sorry for you. It really is a shame.

    Bent the wires on this one. The wires are still a Nike swoosh shape, but it is fitting better (band shorter, more boob in front instead of at the side). Hurray for reclaiming bras from the dead bra bin!

    Yes! That is awesome. 💕
