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.
Well, this is it. Shut it down, everybody. Kill the lights. The search is over. I found it. A Bra That Fits. My Ideal Bra. (For now, anyway - if there's anything I've learned on this crazy [series of] ride[s] it's that Boobs Change.)
This soft unlined bra is supportive; has plenty of wire, apex, and top depth (all of which I need), just the right amount; gives me a softly rounded, naturalistic shape; and is super-comfortable. In addition to the pretty outer lace in dark navy blue ('Kleks' means 'inkblot'), it's lined with a super-soft fine black stretchy mesh for modesty and luxurious comfort.
This bra is a dark blue color that is almost black. It has small, pretty jewels at the gore and on the front of the straps. The band was quite tight compared to other BM models I have. This bra does not have the double layered elastic lace at the top of the cup like other BM models. It only has a single layer. It might not contain soft breast tissue as well as the other models.
