    Fits

    Ok, let me preface this by saying I really dislike white and beige bras. It seems every one I've tried on hasn't fit right for weird reasons that do not make sense. Mot of them are just.... boring looking. I'm a sucker for bold, bright colors, even with my bras.(Which can cause issues while wearing light colored shirts, of course, lol!)
    Until now!
    I could gush about this bra so so much. It's BEAUTIFUL. I read a bunch of the reviews here, and scoffed in my mind, thinking, "How could a white AND beige-ish colored bra have such great reviews? Must be a fluke." That's why I ignored this particular ... model when Ewa released it earlier this year. I finally caved and bought one on Black Friday, and I am SO GLAD that I did!
    This bra is just gorgeous; it's as simple as that. The pictures online don't really show the tan/light brown color lining very well; it looks like it's all cream colored. The lace is, but on top of the tan lining in the cups, it looks like dulce de leche or something. It's really pretty. There's a matching bow at the gore with a little crystal gem decorating it.
    This, like all the other BM bras I've tried, fits like a dream. Projected, narrow, lace lays flat on both breasts! It's a magical bra.

      The lace on this one is so flat and doesn't show under shirts. It's a great bra. Congrats :)

    • 1

      So happy it's another win for you! I agree, it is so beautiful and I'm not a beige or white bra fan either. :-)

    • 1

      Totally agree about the lace, it is INVISIBLE under shirts!

    • 2

      Also the lace reminds me of sea foam, it's very delicate looking

    • 2

      Ohhhhh it's invisible under shirts?? YUSSSSS! I haven't "worn it" worn it yet, only tried it on gleefully as soon as the mailman left after delivering it, lol. I'm planning to wear it tomorrow; crossing my fingers that the straps don't have to have narrowing surgery like my other Ewas.

    • 2

      woohooo!!! And yes this bra is gorgeous. So far, it looks great on everyone I've seen wearing it.

    • Ahhhhhh.....I Love white, beige (and black bras) and I've been resisting the temptation to order this one.
      So glad you like it!

    65FF

    Fits

    Antonina's colour is exactly what I hoped for - on me, in the dead of winter, it'll be nude.

    It's a cream coloured lace over nude lining. It create a cafe au lait appearance from afar.

    It is stunningly beautiful.

    This bra fits to perfection. And I mean perfection. There's no room for error here. Weight must be maintained or I'll bust it. LOL All jokes aside, this is a bra that I'd be able to wear all day every day in perfect comfort, and support heaven. I wouldn't complain if it was a little bit bigger...65G BM's are coming my way from martka00 and I'm curious to compare.

    Tack is perfect, band is TTS and is lace all the way around. I love that. I also like that the scalloped edge of the lace trims the band so nicely.

    Projection at the wire seems better (i.e. deeper. Deeper is better for me) in this one than in Fluo.

      This looks amazing. I love this lace. So glad you had a bra win

    • 2

      I just saw all your reviews and wow! They all look like a great fit (except that Pralinowy which is too small). I think the 65Gs I'll be sending to you will also work great and will definietly provide bit more coverage!

    • 2

      It looks amazing on you! I do love the color of this one as well.

    • 2

      That looks great on you too! The colours go well with your skin tone!

      @Wilderness it's my fave of the lot for comfort, fit and sexy-everyday-ness. The Sekret is a date night kinda bra. ;)

      I’m so glad that you have a success here! It’s sich a beautiful bra and the fit looks great!

    70G

    Fits

    I took (yet another) chance and ordered this bra in 70G, and I have to say, while my smaller side gets considerably less support it feels so so good on my larger side.
    The wires are not as narrow as my 70FFs, it has way more coverage and it just doesn't feel as tight.

    That being said, if I so much as lose a cm in my boobs, this bra will be too big.

    The cups are your typical BM 3 part cups, with the top lace being super stretchy. The inside is lined with a beige mesh, and I have to say from the stock photos I would have thought ... the mesh would be lighter. The lace is pure white--another thing that in stock photos looked a bit more cream to me? But it doesn't matter. This bra is beautiful.
    I will say that on my smaller side it feels like I could have gone down in cup with this bra. Even on my larger side I struggle to fill out the cup completely. One thing I'm very scared of is that after a prolonged wear, the bra will not be as supportive. BMs on me tend to do this, after 7-8 hours, they just sort of flop down. I used to think this is because my 70FFs are dangerously close to being small so they slide down and such but I don't know... it might be just how these bras are.

    The wires feel a lot better for my larger side, mainly cause they are longer, so really the wings are higher and I feel a little bit more contained. On my smaller side... I mean I already know it will slide down as it's too wide for my smaller side.

    The band feels wonderfully snug, not too tight, not loose at all, just right. The gore tacks, is very narrow, blah blah, bra makers take note, this is how you make gores.

    I don't think it's gravity defying lol. I mean, there's considerable lift, but maybe it's the size, I'm used to more lift (and compression I guess?) It also looks like my boobs are a little bit wider in this new size, and I feel like maybe my asymmetry is more pronounced in it.

    Overall, I'm not disappointed in this bra. It's beautiful, it's supportive, and as long as I maintain my boob it will probably fit. On the plus side, I'm at the beginning of my cycle and so my boobs are at their smallest right now, so maybe going into the month the bra will fill out better?

      It looks like a great fit to me. Gorgeous πŸ˜€

    • 3

      Thanks Sovavosi
      I have Apricot, Kleks and Fuksja on hold because I wanted to see how these will fit and now the doubt is killing me if I should go for 70G or 70FF

    • 3

      Apricot fit small on me. I hope that it was a fluke and works for you.

    • 3

      Hm by that a 70G might actually be better for it then!

    • 4

      This looks gorgeous on you!

    • 4

      This one looks so much better on than the stock photo. It’s gorgeous. Your worries mirror my potential concerns about the one I ordered. We just have to wait and see, I guess.

    • 4

      The fit looks fabulous! I love the lace. It looks so much prettier than in the stock photos. It's a hidden gem

    • 3

      I'm breaking my own rules here and wearing it without washing first and so far no sliding, very comfy, I feel like its holding up well (less so on my smaller side but it is expected).

    • 3

      It looks great on you! :-)

    • 1

      It feels a little too big :(

    • 3

      But it looks good at least. :-D
      My Antonina measured larger in the cup but didn't feel larger which was weird. Per my notes, Antonina fit like Kleks in the same size, if it helps.

    • 2

      I already confirmed the 70Gs.
      That being said, Antonina doesn't measure that big at all, I think it's just I lack top fullness to fill it. And at this cup size, I feel like the band might be a bit too loose? I'm gonna test this out with putting it on tighter hook.

    • 3

      would it help to put a cookie on your smaller side?

      and WOW what a beauty. i couldnt stop looking at it!

    • 2

      Hopefully a tighter hookset will do the trick brasaremean. Keep us updated! :-)

    • 2

      dbmamaz not sure how it would work with a non padded bra :/

    • 3

      Beautiful bra! I agree with dbmamaz, I couldn't stop looking at it either! I want get one some day!

    • 5

      Hooking the band on second hooks makes a ton of difference. A ton (I now understand the gravity defying thing, lol). So I feel like I could have gone for 65GG :/ but I hate squeezing myself into 30 bands cause I sit a lot and the band bothers my acid reflux. Esp Ewa's 65 would prolly feel more like a tight 30 which I just can't do. Oh well, looks like second hook it is.

      It also feels like my 70FFs or 75F just didn't have enough immediate projection. These wires stay firmly in my imf, I'm talking like they're glued there and not budging. This bra is definitely deep enough at the wire for me!

    • 2

      also Doriana I despise white bras but I bought two from Ewa and I love them both (Antonina and 70G - Ewa Michalak Β» Sm Wanilia (686) )

    • 1

      Glad the tighter hookset worked brasaremean! And the gravity defying is amazing isn't it?!? :-D

    • 2

      It's gorgeous! Obviously you know your body best but to me, visually, this looks like the best fit I can remember seeing in your photos out of all the bras you've posted so far (that I've seen--I admittedly have not been on much in the past week or so).

    • 3

      For sure wendybien This bra looks like all the boob is actually in the cup! I think the 70FFs were not necessarily small, just too short on the sides for that to happen.

    • 2

      I agree! I think this is a better match for your anatomy, considering the height of your roots and the overall distance between the base of the breast and shoulderline. And if you have monthly fluctuations and will gain some volume in the second half of your cycle you will REALLY appreciate that additional coverage and volume then, because it will feel so much more supportive.

    • 4

      Yes unfortunately I may have underestimated how low set I really am, but I am coming to terms with it. I'm not sure why, I feel like when I was younger my boobs were not really this low on my torso! I remember for sure at some point having that cakes-on-a-plate cleavage right under my chin, lol. But maybe I'm imagining it.

      I'm on the pill, so my low tide days are the days I'm not on the pill, literally those 7 days are when I'm small, and then the second I start again they just retain so much water (I imagine that's what it is) throughout, culminating in what feels like at least 2 cups larger than my usual--my laying perimeter goes from 26.5 (low tide) to 29+ at the end. It's crazy (but a necessity I learned to deal with). So hopefully this will work much much better for the end of the cycle.

    • 2

      My breasts are also getting lower seemingly. It’s really weird.

    • 2

      brasaremean usually when we experience boob growth, the base of the breast root gets taller more than it gets wider (in fact it is quite limited in how wide it gets on many people). So if your chest is larger now than it was then, your underboob crease has moved south! Or if you have had pregnancies or breastfed children that usually causes a loss of fat and a growth of glandular tissue, which means shape changes and often less full on top, even if you have always been low-set.

    • I've never had kids or breastfed but I've taken hormones my whole life for reccuring ovarian cysts which did make (and does make) my boobs just grow and grow...
      I guess that is probably it.

    • Yep that would do the trick. So you don't have particularly low-set boobs at all IMO, you just have full, tall and projected boobs, and if you are even a little bit tall or long-waisted, this means you can easily run out of strap length on standard bras. I am actually very short-waisted and slightly high-set but my boob projectedness and root height means I use almost the full length of the straps on most bras. If I were taller or longer-waisted I would absolutely have a strap length problem, and I'm several cups smaller than you.

      I must say I was puzzled looking at the photos in the red knit top--the arm is a typical reference point for someone's proportions and "low-set" boobs would at least be closer to elbow than shoulder level, but yours are right in between, if not a little higher up.

    • It definitely *feels* like I'm low set. Literally any bra -- the straps are too short. When I look at the photos, they seem really low as well.

      But maybe they're not. Either way the straps are a big issue (so much so my neck and back hurt from too short straps). I should really teach myself to replace straps on bras.

    • I'm about 172cm so I'd say average height (for this region, at least).

    • brasaremean well it is a very relative thing--your inframammary crease is obviously lower on the torso than most people with smaller breasts, less full breasts, or "shorter" roots (yours look tall as well as projected). So yes, compared to the general population this means your boobs are lower because they take up more room vertically, period. But compared to other people who share your boob size/shape, I don't think you look particularly low-set in these photos, though images may be misleading of course.
      Generally, though, again, this is a common problem because bra straps typically are not generously long --as I said above, I have a VERY short torso (162cm but disproportionate, so I have long legs but wear smaller, shorter shirts than my mother in law who is 145cm!!), I'm only a 32E/30F, and I'm wearing a Wacoal full cup bra today with straps almost completely extended. I have the strap on my small-boob side adjusted to just 4cm (total length--folded is 2cm) less than absolute maximum and on the big-boob side I am just 2cm away from maximum! And this bra is a little big in the cups for me so that actually buys me extra strap length.

    • And yes replacing them can be good strategy. Strap strain is sooooo uncomfortable.

    • I think maybe the reason so many bra makers don't put longer straps is because there are more short girls whose straps are too long, than us who need longer.

      Yes, strap pain is by far my worst offender when it comes to bras. Everything else I can deal with, narrow cups, short cups, wide cups, tight band, loose band, but short straps... nope.

    • btw wendybien Should I size up in band and down in cup with Empreinte and Maison Lejaby? I've been reading some reviews and the general consensus seems to be cups are on the larger side and bands on tighter one.
      It's kind of what I remember from French bras (and Prima Donna) that you can easily size down in cup cause they run large.

  4. BM Antonina 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!)

    Now for the bra:
    BM Antonina is a full lace cup & band BM style bra in an off white (with beige accents) lace and a darker tan opaque liner. The lace color is lighter than I thought it would be, while the liner is darker. It’s still nice, but not as appealing as the ... stock photos led me to believe it would be. The gore is covered with a sheer material, giving the illusion of a peekaboo gore without the instability that typically comes with one. The cup construction is the typical BM style, with 2 lower vertical sections (1 seam) and 1 upper horizontal section, with an outer 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 on a cold day. The BM style bra is not padded and provides full and separated coverage.

    The band on the 60K measured 22.875” and stretched to 29”, while the 60KK was 22.75” and stretched to 28.25”. While they should have the same give and take to the band, the 60KK definitely felt stiffer. Both bras came with the standard 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.

    The cup width was 6” for both, with the height on the 60K was 9.5” and 60KK was 10.15”. The depth on the 60K had a conservative measurement of 12.25” (measured with the cup hovered between the knees and the tape measure placed into the cup without any resistance) and stretched over the knee to 15.5”, while the 60KK was 12.75” conservative to a max stretch of 16.5”. The gore is 4” tall and ½” wide for both.

    When I measured these 2 bras, I was really leery about the 60KK fitting as it measured much larger than anticipated. Much to my surprise and delight, it does fit, and beautifully at that! Oddly, they both fit, except the 60K doesn’t tack, sitting about 2 fingers off my sternum, with the 60KK giving a soft tack. But the cups fit nicely otherwise and it is comfortable so both are keepers. And although the band on the 60K stretches further, it requires the middle setting for comfort, while the 60KK is comfy loose on the tightest setting…..But the most unique aspect of this bra is its gravity defying ability! It seriously lifts the breasts like no other bra I’ve tried and I now understand the Ewa Instagram photo of Gosik and Gosia in this bra! (If you’ve seen that photo, you’ll know what I mean.) This BM feels as soft as all my other BMs, but it is definitely more supportive and uplifting than the others. I am not sure why, but if I figure it out, I will update this review. ☺

    Antonina is a gorgeous set of white lace with some subtle bronze additions woven into the lace. It's extremely elegant and it has a very high end look to it. Antonina looks expensive to me. I love the white bows but I could personally do without the gem, though it is fairly easy to remove with a pair of snips should you choose.

    The mesh used to back the lace is just a little too warm to blend into my skin. It's a lovely idea, and I really don't think white or any other color would have been a better choice in this instance.
    The bottoms are true to size ... and very comfortable. I have very narrow hips, but an ample butt from years of lifting and the 38 is the best size for me. It's a little loose around my hips but it looks great from behind. The all lace back means no lines at all and it's a cut I quite like. It's very cheeky on me which is my preference.
    I also bought the thong, which I will have to take in a little bit, I could have sized down in the thong. It is still lovely and the jersey is very soft.

    The band on my Antonina runs more true to size than a lot of the other bras I've been buying lately. This is good in general, but for me it means that I'm on the last or next to last set of eyes already. In my experience, Ewa bras don't really stretch out much with time and wear so this isn't really an issue for me.
    The cups are narrow and deep enough for me at the wire. The wires stay in my IMF throughout the day and I have no trouble with them sliding.
    The straps are fully adjustable and it's easy to move the slider, it stays put once adjusted.

    All in all, no fit major surprises from Antonina.

    The one deviation from my other BMs is center projection, there seems to be less room along the gore and it pushes my breast tissue a bit more to the side than my other BMs. It's not terribly uncomfortable because the gore itself isn't wider, and it's not noticeable when I have a top on, but it looks off to me when I look down without a shirt.
    Because it doesn't compromise fit or aesthetics when wearing for real, I've decided to ignore this quirk of my bra.

    • Does this show under thin/light tops? I’m curious about the bronze woven into the lace. I have never been a fan of solid white bras but this one seems to be a hit with everyone.

    • Calluna light tops yes, as long as they aren't too sheer. Very thin or white, no. My skin is several shades darker than the bra and it barely works as a nude alternative for me right now and won't do so at all in about three months when I start laying out.
      It might work better for you if you're very pale, but most of Ewa's "nudes" are far too light for me, only the Toffik and Summertime has worked for me.

    • Ahh, thanks. I have pretty pale skin these days so sometimes nudes are too dark.

    • Calluna I wouldn't really consider it "bronze". Its more of a glistening nude. I love Antonina so much that i just ordered it as a custom CHP. I'll probably list my 65FF BM. I've only worn it 3x, but I'm much more comfy in 65G size.

    • Calluna I did a test for you. Its visible like a white lace bra under sheer, white, clingy tops.
      I love this, but you may not ;)

      Thanks AprilGoulding. I have been so on the fence about this one.

      I find the lace showing under sheer shirts so so nice! Not at all tacky

    • brasaremean me too. I find it subtly sexy and feminine. Even more so than cleavage many times ;)

    60L

    Fits

    BM Antonina 60L

    This is my third attempt at the BM Antonina, having tried it in 60K and 60KK prior. While the 60KK fit fine initially, my breasts went through a growth spurt that made all my bras suddenly too small and prompted me to order up a cup. While that growth spurt turned out to just be a temporary 4 week swelling spree, I’d already ordered this and several others in the larger size.

    For the measurements:
    All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band ... measurements for the same reason.

    The band measures 22.5” and stretches to a max of 27.25”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 13”
    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 16”


    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    The cup height is 11” and 6” wide, with a gore of 4.15” tall and 0.55” wide, and the wing is 4.5” tall.
    To compare, the 60K Antonina was 15.5” deep and 9.5” tall, while the 60KK was 16.5” deep and 10.15” tall.

    As for fit, the gore is 1 finger off my sternum, and the cups feel great. The strap is too wide set for perfect comfort and the upper lace is barely tensed but still wearable, especially at higher tide days. I am mid cycle, closer to low tide than high tide. While this one actually measures smaller in singular depth than my Antonina 60KK, the cup on this one is definitely more spacious for sure. The 60KK is too small at the base of the cup now, while this one feels roomier. I think this fit would technically be classified as too big, but the 60KK is too small, so as long as this one is comfortable on, then I am classifying it as a fit.

      Looks great! Tbh I've learned that I'd rather the loose lace at the top and roomier cups than uncomfortable smaller bras.

    • 1

      brasaremean I agree, but the loose lace always bothers me so much. Like someone is going to notice the extra wrinkles under a shirt. :|

    • 1

      I am honestly more bothered with the way it looks like my boobs are being shelved but it is so so much more comfortable I'm over it by now.

    • 1

      I typically wear sweatshirts so I'm not worried about that. It's my brutally honest husband's comments that kill me. But the 60KKs are painfully small so I will take a bit of looseness on top over painfully small regardless of his comments. :-D

    65F

    Didn't fit

    My shape is low set, soft, slightly centre full with short and narrow roots. I think I am slightly conical too, since most unlined bras give me a bit of a bullet shape!

    Keep in mind I only tried this bra on for like 5-10 minutes before doing this review. The fit isn't amazing on me, so I think I may re-sell this one.

    This bra is gorgeous, with its cream and beiges. The beige is almost golden and it's slighty shiny. There are little bows on the straps, and one on the gore - along with a little jewel. The lace covers the entire bra including the band ... around to the clasps. The band fits snug but not tight on my 28" ribcage. It measured just shy of 29" before the wires started to distort. Just about right for me. The wires are narrow, but the wings seemed a bit short for me, and I had a bit of side boob escaping. I'm not sure if it's because the cups are just slightly too small or what? I also felt like my breasts weren't securely contained in the centre and top. The upper part of the cups are lace and just a loose lining of mesh, and I think the upper section cut off half way over my nipple, so I felt like I was going to pop out of the top of the cup (or like it may slip down). The support is actually quite good for an unlined bra. I think if it were slightly bigger, I would feel very contained and secure. The straps are wide set, but I have a fairly wide frame, so they are not too bad for me. I could feel a little pressure against my tail of spence, so not sure if that would cause some chaffing during a whole day's wear.

    The shape is nice, albeit a bit more natural looking. If I let the straps out to a comfortably loose length, I definately got more pointy than I prefered, but that's just my natural shape, so can't do much about that. It wasn't as rounded as say... Cleo Marcie... but not as pointy as some other unlined bras I've tried. If I tightened the straps up a bit, the shape got rounder.

    I can't quite tell if the bottom of the cups had enough projection for me. I only tried it on, but I kept expecting the bottom of the cup to wrinkle (it didn't. Not sure if that would have changed with a whole day wear).

    Overall, the quality is excellent, the appearance is stellar, and the comfort is good. I'd keep it if I felt like it fit properly, but I it feels just a bit off to me.

      Looking at these photos, I would say you look kinda squished for the most part. If you get a chance, you should try a cup size up.

      With that said, you and I are very similar in shape and I have the same issue (in the right size) with the upper lace just sort of feeling less secure. I have been in denial about why, thinking it's just too big, but I think I just lack that top fullness in order for it to feel secure. Just can't fill it out. So if you're FOB like me, maybe that's all there is to it!

      Looks a bit small to me, they're normally more full coverage than this.

      Looks a little small to me too. Gorgeous bra though and looks great against your skin. I love that the lace goes all around the band.

    • 1

      brasaremean and Sovavosi I was thinking it might be too small. I'm always in between sizes in EM though... with the bigger size gaping and the smaller size puffing. It's so frustrating. I'd love to try a La Gloria in a 65FF if I ever get the chance (or one of the older Szmaragds).

      Thanks AprilGoulding . I was dissapointed it didn't fit better. If I ever see a bratabase listing in 65FF I may try it out.

      Wilderness1 I'm sorry that this bra didn't work out for you. It is truly gorgeous.

      Agreed with everything above. Gorgeous but a bit small.

      Calluna it's a let down... I was hoping it would be magically perfect.

      As beautiful as the bra is Wilderness1, it should be a magical fit. Hopefully you can sell this one quickly and be able to reorder in a larger cup. : -)

    60K

    Didn't fit

    Just a mini review! This one is a bra swap, I sent my Antonina 60K to Sovavosi, who in turn sent me hers. Mine works better for her since it was a shorter cup, and hers will work better for me (since I need a taller cup) if I happen to lose breast mass. Win Win situation.

    Additional information for measurements:
    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 12.5”
    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    ... This measurement is: 16”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    • I love Antonina. So much that I'm thinking about selling my 65FF and re-ordering in 65G.

    • 1

      It is a nice one-my favorite light colored bra. I love the tan accents, it adds so much elegance to it. 😍

      I have this one in 3 sizes, haha. Too small, bit too small, & a bit too big. πŸ˜„ I even considered getting it in the next size up just in case of future swell and growth, but that might be overkill.....

    60KK

    Didn't fit

    Cups are too small. Wires felt pretty firm, as did the band. I didn't feel like the band had much give.
    I love the lace detail more in person. The nude underlayment actually pairs nicely with my skin, and I kind of feel like I'm in love. It's absolutely gorgeous.

      MamaPagan, yes I did! I'm STOKED. I hope my band runs a little bigger πŸ™ƒπŸ€£

      @veggiechic isn't it weird how photos can receive sometimes? The band is actually quite firm. I doubt I'd be able to (comfortably) wear it for an extended time ;)
      And I agree. It's wonderful!

      Have an extender on hand just in case you get TTS 60s. That way you could at least get some wear out of them.

    I think this bra is a misfire. The cups are almost 10" tall, the apex is very high. My short boobs are drowning in fabric.
