BM Fioletowy 60KK
This is my 3rd attempt with Fioletowy, having tried it in 60JJ and 60K prior.
BM Fioletowy is an unpadded Purple full lace bra. It is normally a Bra Obsessed exclusive, but since they didn’t have my size, I asked Kaśka if I could order it direct and was told yes. It is the standard BM style, and has a black sheer lining to strengthen the lace of the cup.
The band measures 22.15” and stretches to a max of 28.75”. 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: 15.7”
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.
To compare this 60KK to the prior 60JJ & 60K:
60JJ band was 21.5”-28.5” max, cup width 6”, 8.5” tall with depth of 11.75 to max of 13.75”, with gore .5” wide and 3.8” tall, and a wing of 4.5”.
The 60K band was 21.5”-29” max, cup width 6.25”, 9.5” tall with depth of 12.25 to a max of 15.5”, with gore .55” wide and 4.25” tall, and a wing of 4.75”.
That makes the 60KK depth and height barely more than the 60K, with a lower wing and gore. Not enough of an increase to logically be a cup more, but at least a bit better. I cannot say if there is more depth lower below the apex or not, but I am trying to figure out how to gauge this.
I am amazed that there was such a jump between the 60JJ and 60K, but that there’s hardly any difference between the 60K and 60KK. With the 60KK being the largest cup Ewa is willing to do in the BM style, I don’t understand why there would be such a jump at the end of the range like this.
As for fit, the band is perfectly comfortable on the tightest setting, which while not “ideal” is what I consider a win since it doesn’t feel loose. The gore sits about a finger off the sternum and the cups are a nice full fit, and it felt comfortable during the 10 minutes that I wore it to assess fit. If I force the gore to tack, it does strain the stretch lace, but I won’t be walking around forcing the gore to tack, haha, so at this point, 1 finger off the sternum is about as good as it gets for me, and I will still consider this one a fit.
