    Didn't fit

    This bra works well for my extremely projected, centre-full, narrow-rooted, short-rooted breasts.

    The lace easily accommodates my soft, FoT tissue, and there is enough immediate projection in the cup for the wires to sit fairly close to my IMF. The wires are short enough for my short roots, but not so short that my centre-fullness spills out. The fabric is comfortable.

    My main fit issue with the bra is that it is a little too tight in the band. I deliberately got a band size smaller than usual because I wanted extra narrow wires and narrower straps, so I knew this might be a problem. I have solved the issue ... with a bra extender, which I'll wear with it until the band stretches out a bit.

    The other minor fit issue is that the lace on top is a little bit loose at certain angles, but I'm certain that if I went a cup size down, I would get quadding. I can live with a little bit of loose lace, which is not visible under a shirt.

    Overall, I'm hoping this will be a good everyday, frequent use bra. I will update this with further info after I've worn it a few times.

      this looks great on you, congrats on finding an awesome bra!

      Mylargirl , I noticed on your profile that you got 70HH - Comexim » Arizona Plunge Bra (408)
      Do you like it? I ordered it specifically for the cross back, even though black isn't really my colour - but I wanted to see how the straps would work with my shoulders. I should get it in a couple weeks : ) Plus, it was on sale when I ordered it...which is like a sign from God that I need that bra, clearly /s.

    • 1

      Hi BraOdyssey! Sorry for the delay in replying.

      It's actually a 75K in the Arizona Plunge Bra, not a 70HH.

      My suggested "A Bra That Fits" calculator size is a UK 32H, although I have yet to find a bra in this size that is projected enough for me.

      The 75K (which I think roughly translates to a UK 34K, but Comexim sizes are unusual) is too big in the band, and too small in the cups for me.

      I would like to try a 70M in Comexim, because I feel that would be a better fit. Unfortunately, that is a custom size only, and I wouldn't be able to return it if it didn't fit, so I'm hesitant to go there.

      Other fit issues with the bra: I was getting major, major spillage after having worn the bra for a few hours. I have very centre-full breasts, and they would be basically falling out of the bra through the centre. I don't think a plunge style is going to work for me, unfortunately.

      I do love the adjustable straps, though! Having them crossed over in the back was really helpful, because I have narrow shoulders and my bra straps always fall down.

    • Hmm, that's interesting re: your Arizona Plunge bra (sorry, I think I accidentally typed 70HH)
      You can get the gore raised, if you did think that you need it
      Erica from a Sophisticated Pair has YouTube videos about the different Comexim alterations. She says that she notices that the alterations tend to start around the H cup (I'm not sure if she means UK H or Coemexim H) Anyway, here is a link to her video, but I also understand if you are hesitant to invest in that style. https://youtu.be/METoV07IF6A

    • 1

      Awesome, thanks! I'll check out the video.

      Based on the UK-Comexim calculator on Reddit, I should actually be a 70N in Comexim, but based on the fact that this cup *almost* fits, that makes me think I'm more of a 70M, and 70N would be way too big.

      I think getting the gore raised just a cooler centimetres might fix the issue, or also, maybe I should just try a CHP style.

    • 1

      I think I read that the UK -Comexim calculator can overestimate cup size for some people? It's highly individual, imo...yeah, if you think 70N sounds like too much, I would totally go w your gut of 70M.

    Fits

    I'm generally not a fan of black bras--I find them incredibly boring. I want to say Czarny Tulipan needs huge big pink bows or something, but I guess that would take away from its simplicity (still I'm considering sewing a huge big pink bow on it...)

    It's a very elegant, comfortable bra in the Bibi line of half-lace BMs. Half lace BMs are my summer perfection. I've been looking at the bras I bought and I'm thinking, this is all fine because it's winter right now, but what happens in the summer? Cause bulky lacy bras seem to not be very optimal for the heat we get here (35+ ... C in July). But the half lace BMs actually are just a single layer of satiny material and some stretch lace on top. Perfect.

    However, because of that, they might not be a good fit to some. Full lace BMs have another layer of mesh under the lace to sort of give some shape to the breast, and then on top of it, additional shaping is provided by the lace. For a non padded bra, it's a fair amount of structure. With half-lace BMs, that element is gone. I think most really bad fits with BMs I've seen have been with the half-lace BMs exactly.

    But anyway. This bra is essentially the same as my 70G - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bibi Beżowa Perła (533), however, it runs smaller in the cup (and it shows). On my larger side in the photos you can clearly see where the seam cuts in. It's nothing special, no big deal, but a thing to note. From experience, this will stretch out and fit a little better after some wear. It's how it was with Bezowa Perla as well.
    The wires are wire perfection.
    I wonder if the reason this and Fuksja run small in the cup is because of the black dye... it makes the fabrics less stretchy or something. I think that would make sense. Kaska said she has no idea why they run smaller in the cup, just that they do.

    And yes, I do have a Fuksja in the same size on the way...

      I read somewhere black dye resulted in smaller and less stretchy fabric.

      Yes, same! I don't have the red or the white, but the beige doesn't run small at all.

      I really want one of these. I do love a nice black simple but elegant bra. That’s why I love my S Szykus so much. Simple yet elegant.

    • 1

      Yes it has classic elegance, if you will. Very pretty.

      It's funny, but I have the half lace BMs in Black, White, Red, & Fuksja and they all fit the same. They are slightly smaller than my full lace BMs but definitely not a half cup smaller. It's really more of a feeling like their upper lace is slightly more hugging/less open than most of the full lace ones. At least that's what I've experienced anyway!

      Comme all the black bras on the planet. I'll take them all lol i love them.
      Gorgeous. I guess a half lace is on my list now....

      I second that comnent brasaremean. They are bra perfection! I can't wait for the new pinstripe one to come out next year..... I do wonder what color it will be. Hopefully they will post Instagram photos of it soon.

    • I hope no white :(

    • I would love a blue one, but figuring it will most likely be black or white. Honestly I am good with any color as long as it's the half lace BM!!

    • 1

      I'll agree with that sentiment brasaremean I do not like white undergarments. I've only owned one white bra and not because I wanted to but because it was available, lol

    • 1

      Especially in the summer white bras are pretty much useless to me! You can't really wear them under anything.

      MamaPagan we just gotta keep an eye out on their IG maybe we get a tease of the pinstripe bra.

      i think years ago there was some, let me find it.

      Totally agree on the white which is why I was hesitant to try Lucy from amazon...only white in my size. But I’ve found a red Lucy which is better and is supposed to be good for under white shirts (not like I have any, really).

    • I would gladly welcome them all brasaremean! ! :-D

      I would choose black over white hands down, yet white over beige. To me beige just amplifies my spotchy skin. Brown and Tan I love, but beige, not so much.

      Oh gosh, the band on this is a real issue. It's giving me no support whatsoever, I had to put it on tightest hookset otherwise the cups completely collapse on me.
      I sent an email to Kaska to change my Fuksja to 65GG, hopefully it's not too late.

    • Fingers crossed she can change it in time for you!

    65GG

    Fits

    I purchased this after falling in love with the BM Caramel. This bra is made with a very thin black fabric. Despite having a tight weave to the fabric, it’s actually very lightweight. When I hold it up to the light you can actually see through it. The cup is a three part construction with the lower cup consisting of a single layer of black fabric. The upper cup is a single layer of stretch lace. The lace is the exact same lace used on almost all the BM’s that have a lace upper cup. But, the lace has been cut out at a different section so it ... visually looks slightly different. The center gore has a cute black bow with a diamond pendant. The back band is a single layer of black power mesh. I feel this is a light weight and gives a pretty flexible fit for a black bra. So, I don’t feel this bra runs any smaller like a black bra can sometimes run. The elastic straps are black with a slight sheen to them. There is a little black bow where the strap connects to the cup. All hardware is black. There is a 3x4 back clasp.

    BM Czarny Tulipan 60L

    Bibi Czarny Tulipan is a simple black half lace BM. It doesn’t have any lining, so it is thin yet supportive, and super comfortable. This is my second attempt at this bra, having it in 60KK as well. I ordered this one from MagdaBras4you. She is spectacular in her customer service!

    Now for 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 21.63” and stretches to a max of 27”. 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: 13.75”
    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 16”

    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.

    This one also has the lazy J wires that are typically reserved for the SF style bras. This appears to make the straps more wider set than in the BMs with the usual U wires.

    For other measurements, the width is 6.25” with a height of 10.63”, a wing of 4.75”, and a gore of 0.5” wide and 4.375” tall.

    To compare, the 60KK has a 23”-30” band, with 6” wide cups, 10.25” tall, 12.25-15.25” depth, wing of 4.5” and gore with 0.5” width and 4.25” tall.

    As for fit, it fits like my other 60L BMs, which is a bit more spacious than I need on most days, but since the 60KKs are too small, these work better at the moment. They are pain free and comfortable. The fit would look a bit better, but as you can see, I was slouching in the photos. :-/

    As a photo compare can show, this one (and the white Bianka half lace BM) fit exactly the same as the 4 full lace BMs I own in the same size. All three BMs from this order measure 16.5” max depth, which is larger depth than my other 3 BMs which had a max depth of 15.5-16” but those had 6” wires.

    There does seem to be a difference in fit between the Half Lace and Full Lace BMs in some other size ranges, but at this size, there is no difference noted.

      BM bibi's are my favorite. I am hoping that the pink checks and red dots planned for next release will be as comfortable. I don't see a size diff between my Bianca and full lace BMs either. This style looks fab on you!! Really fab :)

      Yes, the half lace are my favorites too! I can't wait for the pinstriped one myself. Definitely would love more color options for the half lace varieties.

    Fits

    I am a fairly even and very projected breast shape. I have average-to-narrow roots with a slight omega shape. My best fitting bra is a Cleo Lily in 28GG, though I think a 30G would be more comfortable in terms of band length.

    This bra is good for someone with average-narrow width, a projected shape, and some upper fullness.

    I think this bra might be the death of my bank account - I like it a lot! It's a very, very tiny bit wide for me, so I'm doubly interested in other EM bras that have her normal width. This is the first EM bra I've tried. I don't ... necessarily feel like I get the cakes-on-a-plate look she's famous for, however, but then this is one of her balconette bras rather than a plunge or half-cup.

    The band is nice and snug, comfortable without being tight or constricting. Do note that I tend to prefer a very snug band, however, so YMMV. I am especially pleased by the three hooks, rather than just two, in the band.

    The bra has nice, stretchy lace on top - I suspect it could accommodate for slightly more wiggle-room where upper fullness is concerned than some bras. The cup fabric itself is silky and smooth to the touch - it's very comfortable and doesn't chafe even a little. The peal and bow detail in the center adds a little extra elegance to the classic design. I would also go so far as to say the pictures uploaded don't really do it justice - I was a little worried about it feeling "plain" when I purchased it from another bratabase user, but I don't feel that way at all now that it's in my possession. It has a "less is more" sort of feel to the design.

    70F

    Fits

    Soft-boobed fans of Ewa Michalak rejoice! Finally a bra where I don't ooze out the middle! I love this bra. Absolutely love it. It contains my super soft tissue beautifully while maintaining the round shape we all know and love from EM.

    The bra is made of super thin, stretchy silky material with stretchy lace on the upper 1/4 of the cup. It has a small jewel and bow on the center gore. The lace definitely accommodates asymmetry and would be an excellent bra for monthly swelling due to hormones. It is more full coverage than the SM style. It looks like the band runs a tad big ... and is very stretchy, so be warned.

    The only bad thing I noticed when wearing it is sometimes there's a barely noticeable bulge under my shirt where the bottom section of the cup meets the stretchy lace. The lace has way more give than the bottom fabric so it doesn't hold me in quite as tight. This causes the outline of the cup to be not a perfectly smooth arc under tighter shirts. This should only be an issue for people with water boobs like me.

    I hope Ewa continues this line of bras in more colors in the upcoming seasons. I'm so happy to finally have an unpadded bra that I feel secure in.

    • Thanks so much for the review. I chose to say goodbye to fairly firm breasts when I decided to nurse and they are indeed like water so I spill out of my EM bras by the end of the day. Interested to see how it works in larger sizes.

    70F

    Didn't fit

    It's very soft and smooth. It encases my extremely soft breast tissue and lifts it. There is a good amount of projection at the wire. Because my tissue is non-supportive, I do get some creases at the wire but that's just my breasts being heavy. I do get some cutting into my tail of spence, especially on the right side.

    HILARIOUSLY the wire on the right side of the cup is one size bigger than the one on the left - I think someone messed up and put a 70FF wire on the right and the 70F wire on the left - the right side is 0.5cm wider in ... cup width than the left side, and is 2cm longer on the right side too. This causes a lot of cutting into my tail of spence. I plan on returning this and repurchasing in a different color and hoping the bra was just a fluke. If it weren't for the weird underwire thing, I would have kept it. However, I've suffered way, way too much from tail of spence problems that I'm on the hunt for the perfect bra.

    I can't decide if I want to keep this bra or not! I did remove the tag, so I can't exactly send it back, but I have yet to wear it all day. I keep waffling about it, which makes me think I should probably just try to sell this and buy a bra I am more excited about!
    Anyways, this was one of my Black Friday purchases. I have the beige color of this type of bra, and I don't wear it very much because I am NOT a fan of beige, and I don't like the fit of the half lace BMs as well as the full lace. This black Bibi feels tighter all around, which I know is typical of black bras.

  9. BM Bibi Czarny Tulipan 60KK

    Bibi Czarny Tulipan is a half lace, unpadded full coverage bra. It has 4 sections to the cup, 2 lower vertical ones, an upper horizontal, and an outer wedge section that connects the straps to the cup. As with all the BMs, the upper lace section is always stretch lace.

    The band measures 23” and stretches to 30”. 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: 12.25”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching ... it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 15.25”

    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.

    This bra is my bra bliss. It fits perfectly, is completely comfortable, and feels supportive all while feeling like I’m not wearing a bra at all. I have also tried two other half lace BMs, both of which are also perfection in bra form. While I really like the full lace BMs and the SFs, comfort and fit wise, the Half Lace BMs are far better. My only complaint with the Half Lace BMs is that Ewa doesn’t make more variety of them. Currently you have this one (Black), Bianka (White), Fuksja (Black w Purple), Scarlet (Red), and Bezowa Perla (Beige). I really wish we’d see some bright and bold colors in the Half Lace style. Give me Green, Blue, Purple please!!!
