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? Read more 318 more words
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. ☺
