BM Absynt in 60K and 60KK
I ordered this one in both 60K and 60KK during opening weekend to take advantage of the sale price. I am currently between these two sizes for Ewa’s BMs, so depending on the model, I can take either (or as it turns out, sometimes both!)
I must say this bra is an awesome color. I love the bright lighter green and the contrasting purple straps and accents. A combo of my favorite colors! I did find it odd that the purples used are not really matching, so the purple on the straps isn’t the same as the purple on the ... bow, nor does either completely match the purple on the hook/eye loop area. This isn’t a deal breaker for me, but is a bit odd. The lining is white, as are the strap adjusters.
The strap adjusters are like suspender type adjusters-lift, slide, then close. This make it so much nicer and easier to adjust the straps.
The cup construction is the typical BM style, with 2 lower vertical sections (1 seam) and 1 upper horizontal section, with a wedge area that connects the straps to the cups securely. The upper horizontal section is always made of a stretch lace, and this particular model has the upper lace section lined as well, which can vary by model. This lining doesn’t provide bulk, just modesty so you can’t see the nipples through the bra but does not stop them from showing through a shirt when browsing the freezer section at the supermarket. The BM style bra is not padded and provides full and separated coverage.
The band measures 21.75” & stretches to 27.75” on the 60K, and 22.5” to 28.5” on the 60KK. Both have the standard 3 hooks with 4 rows of eye loops for these sizes.
The cup heights are similar with 9.75” (60K) & 9.85” (60KK) and widths are 6.15” (60K) & 6.25” (60KK). The depth (measured by hovering the cups between the knees and placing a tape measure inside the cup without any resistance) was 12” for 60K and 12.25” for the 60KK, with them stretching over the knee to a max of 15.1” (60K) and 15.35” for the 60KK. The gores are both 4.25” tall and .6” wide.
As for fit, they both fit beautifully, but the 60K doesn’t tack (sitting about 1 finger’s width off the sternum) and the 60KK does a soft tack. While the straps are narrower than most Ewa bras in my size at .75”, they do not cause any pain or discomfort with all day wear.
