Based on other people's review of Kleks, I wasn't exactly expecting good things, especially since I'm having fit issues with my 65JJ EM already. For the most part, the bra really wasn't a bad fit, but I'm noticing more and more, that my tissue on my larger side (left side) isn't contained under my arm pit area. I'm not really sure what that means in terms of fit though. Maybe the cup isn't high enough if that makes sense? Otherwise, I don't mind the bra. I don't have quadding. It isn't uncomfortable to me, but I can tell that it's going to be too small when my breasts swell. If I had tried this bra on a couple of days ago, it would have been a nightmare.
The curse of being between two band sizes (30 and 32) is that neither is just right. I was wary of ordering 65GGs for this reason and I was right.
Bm Kleks is a beautiful bra. It sort of looks like a Bm version of the Sf Blueberry? The lace is not the same I don't think, but the bras look very similar.
The cups are your typical Bm cups with stretch lace on top. In this size, it comes with one single vertical seam in the lower part, and horizontal seam on top. The cups feel roomy, *but* this is not a sister size to 70Gs. Neither ...of the three 65GG bras feel like a 70G with a tighter band. There is considerably less room at the wire and the cups overall feel a lot tighter (and closed on top). The compression is very uncomfortable. It's almost as if I need a 65H in order to fit like my 70Gs do in the cup.
Now I know there have been reports of cups running roomier when sister sizing down. I can honestly say that with every sister size down I bought, I felt the opposite. 80E to 75F > the cups were smaller. 75F to 70FF > the cups were considerably smaller. And now 70G to 65GG, the cups are smaller. I'm writing the sizes out for information on the size range at which this happens.
The band though is where my real issue is. I don't know if I'm just not used to it, but it feels very very tight. So that's where my problem is... the 70 band feels too loose and I have to hook it on tightest hookset. This one feels too tight on the loosest. This game just feels unbeatable : ( The band is so tight I feel like the wires at the gore are angling inwards even though it doesn't look like it. It definitely feels that way. I don't see any considerable distortion on the outside. On the other hand maybe it's the small cups making it feel so tight. I will do the upside down test later to check.
So really that's it. Good news is this bra might fit perfectly in the future if I lose volume. Read more 266 more words
This is my third attempt at Kleks, just like with Antonina, with me trying it prior in 60K and 60KK. While the 60KK fit fine initially, my breasts went through a growth spurt that made all my bras suddenly too small and prompted me to order up a cup. While that growth spurt turned out to just be a temporary 4 week swelling spree, I’d already ordered this and several others in the larger size.
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 22.5” and stretches to a max of 29”. 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: 13.25” 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.
The cup is 10.25” tall and 6” wide, the gore 0.55” wide and 4.25” tall, and the wing 4.75” tall. To compare, Kleks in 60K had a depth of 15” and 10” tall, while 60KK was 15.5” depth and 10” tall. This is the only model that had increased logically with size, haha.
As for fit, the gore sits just over 1.5 fingers off my sternum, and the strap feel too wide set. While the cups feel fine, this one feels like the largest of the 3 BMs I received though the depth measures the same as the Antonina and is actually shorter by ¾”. I am not sure how the construction varies from the other BMs, but it must in some way, as is reflected in the fit. I do get wrinkling on the upper portion of the cup on one side, as reflected in the photos. I will still wear this one, as the 60KK is too small in the cup now, and causes pain. Hopefully my breasts will go through another swelling spree and I can get a better fit with this one. Read more 367 more words
DHL shipping is wonderful! Got to me in two days for only 95pln. It’s soooo nice not to worry about shipping. Onto the bra: it was my first time trying the Bm cut, and I really like it. It is really soft and pretty! The fit was pretty good - I’m at my smallest point rn, so it is a tad bit big (~1/5 of a cup?) but it still felt supportive. It isn’t a front-and-center bra, but it is really comfy. I’ll be wearing it a lot.
My first, well-fitting Ewa, huzzah! This bra feels quite firm in the band, but I've discovered that I like that in a bra. The only issue I have is the straps, and the fabric around the armpit area: it's just a touch too wide for me. I'm willing to overlook that, however, because this bra makes my breasts look lifted and upright, more so than most of the other bras I have. At first, I was a little put off by the shape difference between this Ewa and the Comexims I have, but I found that I'm starting to like it more. The top part of the cup, ...instead of having any elastic to hold it down, consists of the lace outside, and this super thin, soft mesh on the inside that isn't sewn to the edge. I wasn't sure that would work, as I have really soft tissue, but it does! The lace and the lining lay on topof my breasts just so that it doesn't cut into my skin or make it poof/quad out. Also, this bra is SO PRETTY. This little gems on the straps and in the middle make me feel like I'm wearing a princess bra, hahah. I've already ordered a couple more BM styles, and two SF, as I've read those are similar. (The Fluo... omg hot pink! and a Crazy, omg cute green! I love colors, so why not wear colorful bras?? Also the Pin-Up and the Maryna) Here's hoping those work as well as the Kleks! Read more 144 more words
My shape: semi-conical, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots. My breasts don't conform to bra shapes very well and are quite short.
I love, love, love this bra. I don’t know any other way to say it. The colour is a perfect shade of inky dark blue, with little clear gems on the gore and straps. It seems to be sewn a little differently than my other two BMs, giving me more of rounded shape under clothing. If I only could keep one bra, this one would be it. This style is excellent for short shapes!
After measuring and re measuring and wearing this bra, and looking at sister sizes and checking the tag to be sure I wasn't crazy, I've come to the conclusion that it cannot possibly be a 100FF as the tag says. The cups on this are only 11.5 inches deep, whereas the sister sizes of other BMs in specific and other Ewa's in general usually have around 13 inches. It leaves me wondering if there's a 100E out there with a switched tag!
That being said, even though it doesn't fit it took me a couple of wears to realize it due to the lovely, fantastic, magical stretch lace. I'm really center full and the stretch lace accommodated that beautifully. I had no quading, and the gore even tacked! I'm going to try again with another BM.
Summary of good things: -Projected at the wire -Projected at the gore -Stretch lace very forgiving for asymmetry and FOT breasts -Narrow wires -Brings breasts front and center but not overly in your face.
I already had Kleks in 60K & while it fits nice and full at lowest tide, it became quite clear it was too small in the cup during the rest of the month, so I ordered it again at 60KK.
Compared to the other BMs that I have, Kleks fits more like the half lace ones than the full lace ones. Kleks definitely runs smaller than the other full lace BMs, at least in my size range.
Measurements for 60KK= Band 23.5” flat to 29.75” stretched with 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops. Cup depth is 12.15” (measured hovered between the knees with the tape measure placed into ...the cups without any resistance) to a max of 15.5” stretched over the knee. Cup height is 10” and width is 6.25” Wing is 4.65” and gore is .65” wide and 4.25”tall
Measurements for 60K= Band 22.25” flat to 28.5” stretched with 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops. Cup depth is 12” (measured hovered between the knees with the tape measure placed into the cups without any resistance) to a max of 15” stretched over the knee. Cup height is 10” and width is 6” Wing is 4.8” and gore is .56” wide and 4.25”tall
So, the difference between the two is minimal but hopefully will make a difference for fitting better at higher tides for me. (I’m at low tide right now, so can’t say for sure but the 60KK fits great now at least! Haha. I will try to add photos at high tide if I remember.)
I really wish that Ewa wouldn’t make the band longer in the 60KKs, but it seems to be a consistent design and when I requested them to be shorter I was told no in a slightly offensive way. Specifically, Kaska at Ewa told me that all bras will be made to standard and if I want a shorter band I will need to hire a seamstress to shorten them for me, or I will have to go to Poland so Ewa can measure me herself then decide if she is willing to accommodate my request…….uh….yeah…… So much for her “body positive” motto! (I then gave her my measurements and she requested photos, front, side, and back of me in an Ewa 60KK bra. I sent them (SF Maryna) and stated that even 1cm shorter would be of great assistance to me and she said she’ll see what Ewa can do, but then never got back to me and my order arrived, surprise, without shorter bands.) Oh well, such is life, right? Ugh.
So, keep in mind if you’re above a 60K cup, expect the bands to run a size large, and no Ewa will not make a 55 band in a cup above a J due to wire distortion and incompatibility at a larger cup size, so if you need them shorter, you’ll have to do so yourself.
