BM Baklazan is a beautiful dark violet bra. The lace is very delicate and soft and looks so so beautiful.
The bra fits about the same as my other BM bras.
Three part cups, with the top being very stretchy lace (stretchier than usual to be honest). I think this bra has some in cup quad potential because the lace on top is that soft and stretchy. If I puff my chest out I definitely get some quadding in my silhouette, luckily I don't usually do that in public so no big deal.
The band, even tho lined with lace, is a little looser than I'd like. I'd say overall, it's ...as loose as my 75F - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Beżowa Perła (533) when I first got it. This worries me because if it stretches out it will be too loose https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />. But we shall see what happens.
The gore overlaps and is very comfortable for me. Perfect tack. The little bow is very cute.
As a last minute alteration, Ewa made the straps longer for me. She added 10 cm to them and they are perfect https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />. That being said in the photos they are very loose because I didn't tighten them at all when I first tried it on. The bra still looks like it has enough support even so. Good to see my hunch was right that I don't actually need overly tight straps in order to carry the weight of my boobs.
Overall, this might be the prettiest BM bra of the lot. I can't get over how beautiful this lace is. The bra fits well enough, I think.
edit: After wearing it a while, I find 2 things about this bra that I did not initially: 1. The lace under the cups bothers me a lot. I have to sort of bend the lace away from my body in order for it to not bother my skin. It's not that rough to the touch, though, but I guess my underbust skin is sensitive to it. I will not be purchasing any more bras that have that lace on the band under the cups. 2. This bra is just not as supportive as my other BMs. They are all the same size, but this one offers considerably less support. Overall, I don't like wearing this bra. Read more 289 more words
My shape: FOB, soft tissue, narrow roots and shoulders This bra is so pretty! I'm not a big "purple" person, but this shade is so deep and dark that it almost looks black in pictures. The fabric is a really rich purple lace that is feels stretchier than my other BM bras, but it doesn't affect the fit at all. The bottom edge of lace, across the underwire, seems bigger and longer than my other BMs. It's not bothersome, just an observation I made. I had a hard time choosing between this and the BM Porto; they both look so similar. As always, I had to move the straps and the elastic ...at the armpit over a smidge for it to fit me perfectly. I wore it for a full day without doing my strap surgery in hopes that maybe I wouldn't need to do that anymore, but the straps dig into my armpits way too much to be comfortable. (Oddly enough, the only Ewa bra I have that I didn't need to move the straps over is the BM Absynt, and I'm almost 100% sure it's because the straps on that model are skinner and don't have the lace scalloped edge. Maybe she will make more bras with those kind of straps!) Read more 100 more words
This is my first BM purchase and I think it is a fail. WAH!
The fit of this bra is just not right. My breasts feel very compressed and don't seem to be able to fill the bottom of the cup. I get a weird shape because my breasts are moving up to compensate for the shallowness at the bottom of the cup. I don't know if the mesh lining at the bottom is too firm, or if this is standard for BMs, but I am not feeling the promised stretchiness. But, I don't know if a large size will be a better fit, as I worry that I won't fit the top of a larger cup. Sigh.
On the plus side, the bra is gorgeous. This lace and colour are to die for. The band is firm and fits my 27" inch ribcage very well. I would not want to size down in the band on this bra.
BM Baklazan is a fuller coverage, full lace unpadded bra with stretch lace on the upper section. The cups are the typical 3 sections-2 lower and one upper horizontal area, plus it has an outer wedge area that connects the cups to the straps securely. The color is classified as burgundy on Ewa’s site, though I’d call it more of a dark purple than a red. It is similar to Porto but without the reddish tones. The underside is black, but the stretch lace on the top of the cups is not lined at all.
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 22.875” and stretches to a max of 28.25”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops. The band is a full lace band, and is as typical for Ewa lace bands, with less stretch.
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: 12.75” 2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 16.5”
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.
As for fit, the band feels beautifully snug on the tightest hook-set, and I could most likely wear it on the middle setting which is nice. The cups had me a bit worried during measurements as they are super stretchy, but fit perfectly, and the gore is only 1 finger off my sternum which is about as good at it gets for me so I’m happy.
I also ordered the matching briefs, in a size 38 (10) as it was the smallest one available. It measures 69cm flat to a max of 100cm, which is a bit stretchy for the targeted hip range of 91-96cm. It is comfortable though so I’m fine with it.
