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.
