Scarlet is a half lace BM in a bright red color. The cups are in the typical format, with 2 lower sections (1 vertical seam) in a silky nylon, and one upper stretch lace section that is not lined with mesh like most full lace BMs are.
The band measures 22.875” and stretches to a max of 28.5”. It has the standard 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: 12.5”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar ...to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 15.8”
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 cups are awesome, and fit just like all my half lace BMs. The gore sits 1 finger off my sternum but this is about as good as it gets for me so I’m happy! The band is standard with being comfy on the tightest hookset. Half lace BMs are my Bra Bliss ☺ That being said, I don’t find this color as appealing, as it seems to conflict with my splotchy multi-shade skin. Since the only one who will see it (aside from all of you) is my husband, I will gleefully wear it for its comfort!
I love this. It's a little on the tight side, band-wise, but I'm going to the gym and losing a little weight and toning up so I'm currently using an extender (and have adjusted the straps) but think this will change soon. The colour is very vivid, almost more of an orange-red, and quite shiny. It's extremely comfortable, and my only complaint is that it's not quite as supportive as I would like in the upper cup. I should point out this is due to my very soft breast tissue rather than the bra though. It's the first Ewa I have that I feel comfortable in.
This is a great viabrant color of red and the straps are super comfy!! Somewhere along the last year I got my size mixed up so I went up in the cup and band in my search and ended up with a couple great bras that I took in beside the gore in a non permanent alteration and it works great!
