I ordered this bra back on June 23rd, through Lavana Bratique. I just got this beauty in the mail yesterday! Oh man was that wait long lol. But we’ll worth it in my opinion.
I’m usually not a fan of red because red usually doesn’t look good on me. But since this bra has a lot of black, and I was in love with the undies, here it is.
The cups are a bright red covered with black stretch lace. The upper cup lace runs a tad tight in my opinion, but should loosen up with wear. The center gore and rocker consists of bright red fabric with ... a fine black mesh overlay. There is a cute black bow with a dangly silver charm. The back band is made with a shiny black fabric and there is a black lace detail where the red with mesh overlay rocker meets the side of the back band. The back clasp is bright red with a 2x4 hook closure. The straps are black elastic with red zigzag stitching detail up the entire length of the elastic. The strap hardware is red and there are two black bows where the straps meet the cup. Flamenco is a very fitting name for this.
Briefs in size 38:
What drew my attention to this bra was this pair of briefs. The front center panel is a bright red fabric with the black fine mesh overlay, exactly like the center gore and rocker of the bra. There is some thin black satin ribbon where the center panel meets the front hip portion, which consists of red stretch fabric with black stretch lace over it. There is a matching silver charm hanging from the center front at the waistband. The back of the briefs is my favorite part. The bottom layer is a bright red stretch fabric with a black lace edging. Over that is a black mesh overlay with black lace edging, shorter than the under layer so the red peeks out a few inches. There is a black bow with a red center at the top back of the waistband. The waistband is a nice black lace.
This set would definitely do nicely with some black lace top stockings and black lingerie robe if you want something sexy to wear *wink wink*

yea!! I love it! I was just eyeing this bra the other day on Levana bratique's website, lol.
IDk, I prefer darker colours/thickers fabrics for winters anyway. This bra looks so good on you! Definite "bra win", lol : )
Thanks for a heavily detailed and thorough review as always! You're awesome! The flamenco is stunning on you! And the red compliments your skin tone quite well. You're so right about the panties! They're gorgeous. The flamenco is definitely going on my wishlist!
BraOdyssey I also love dark bras for winter. This is very lovely if you can get your hands on it.
marilynne The panties are amazing! I’m a huge fan of EM panties. They fit me so well I’m obsessed!
She does do a fantastic job on her undies! Most companies specializing in bras don't carryover into quality panties (e.g. comexim always having that elastic edging that digs and creates quad-bum no matter how much you size up, cleo always running small and again with the unflattering elastic edging etc) Ewa always uses mesh or lace and avoids elastic edging as much as possible, often favoring rolled seams.
marilynne Yes! That’s the best part, the behind! My rear is quite squishy lol, so I definitely appreciate a good pair of panties that doesn’t squish my cheeks into four haha. Totally agree about Comexim panties. I always size up now. I also notice that even then, the panties get wider, but not necessarily taller. Another feature I like in EM panties, she changes the over all proportions in her sizing.
I feel the same way with red. My 65FF - Ewa Michalak » Pl Milady (330) is similar but has more red. I do like dark bras especially with my work uniform being mostly black.
Congrats on another “bra win”! And thanks as always for your detailed helpful reviews :)
I think this shade of red is very pretty with your skintone! The lace overlay definitely has a vintage vibe to it. I placed an order with Levana in July and only got it last week! It was definitely worth the wait.
What a beautiful bra! The cups look to support you without gaping. It looks like a winner to me.. plus love the little bow and chain at the gore.
