This is another Hot Chocolate from Breakout Bras' recent final sale. BoB apparently custom orders special tags from Comexim with UK sizing, as 34K is the only size shown on the tag or label. Their recommendation is to size up two cups from your regular UK size, or one for more "vavoom." I usually wear a 34J and they happened to have one left at 34K, so I snagged it to try.
By the measurements, it looks like this would be the right size for me - it's pretty close to a 34J Elomi Morgan in cup width, depth, and height. In actuality it doesn't fit. With some extra scooping and swooping I *just about* fill out the cups, but the shape is all wrong for me. It spreads out horizontally and makes my breasts look like round sourdough loaves, lol. I measured the top lip of the cup from gore to strap, and it was just over 9.5", whereas the Morgan is only 6", so I think this would work better for someone who needs a lot more width on the top? The cups and the gore seemed like they were tipped forward, like there wasn't enough tension on the top of the band. The gore was far from tacking and the bra gave me a little bit of butt-crack cleavage. This is the first seamed, padded bra I have ever owned, and the other one I recently tried, the CK Day Dreamer, has a similar shape and lean, so I don't know if this is kind of how this style is typically cut.
The stretched band measured 36", but even though that is my approximate loose underband measurement, I couldn't even clasp it without an elastic extender.
I double and triple checked the cup width, because on paper it's the same as the Morgan, but the Hot Chocolate cuts across breast tissue on the sides, at least when my arms are down. If I lift my arms up, it follows the curve perfectly. Guess I'll have to walk around like that, haha. The wires slid down as much as any (all) other bras on me and the shape lost some of its lift. Despite all this, it was perfectly comfortable over a few hours wear. It's also a looker with a black mesh covered with a rich, warm rust-brown colored lace. But not to be for me.
