I have hesitated for this review because I have sooo many mixed feelings about this bra right now, all jumbled in my head. Let me explain...
Last year, I finally got the courage to try Ewa Michalak as lcl0706 sent me her 65F Mp Kleksik to try since it was fairly tts. I fell in love with the fit, and the colour was beautiful on me. I didn’t want to send it back! But I did, and used the data from it to start buying some Ewas on my own from the listings. Still a bit R&D and learning how the sizes and styles fit. Come ... summer, I was finally considering trying a BM, and so I began saving my money to buy one. I was going to order directly, but was now turned on to Broad Lingerie and Forever Yours Lingerie, two Canadian retail shops that sell Ewas.
The fall/winter stuff was coming out and Broad had sent me a picture of the Cabernet and I had been eyeing the stuff at FYL. In the end, I opted for the Cabernet, because I had been dealing with Sam who was immensely helpful. But it was at a time when I had been experiencing growth and insecure about my size in the BM. In the end, we decided that the size to try was the 65FF, based on how the other Ewas had been fitting me. I ordered with the Black Friday sale and the deal was done. It was just a waiting game through the Canada Post strike.
When I got it, I had a virtual fitting with Sam who said that it looked good but that I *might* be able to do a size down in the cups. She really wasn’t sure, but it echoed thoughts that I had about the fit. I rotated back and forth with whether the 65FF was the right fit or not.
I knew that I would never be happy until I had tried a 65F/70E for Bra Science. I waited for a good opportunity to come along to try one, and I recently came across one. I decided to swap my 65FF PL Cappuccinowy for this 65F Kleks.
I have to say that I have wanted to try Kleks forever. I think I might have been a bit spoiled trying that Kleksik way back when. It planted the seed for an inky blue bra. And while I do have my navy Marcie, Kleks is in a class of its own, in my opinion. I was super grateful that I was able to try this as part of a swap.
Now on to the bra review. I’m gonna spoil it for you.
It’s too small. In more ways than one. The band is full lace and thus a bit firmer. I don’t think that it’s actually all that different from the other BMs I have tried, but I’m guessing it’s the lace that makes it feel tight, but it’s also small in the cups which doesn’t help. I can easily and comfortably use a full extender with the bra and it’s still sung enough, though it does not ride up and it opens the cup volume up a smidge (although it’s still cutting into tissue and quadding on both sides but less so on the smaller side). I think that I have two sets of pics up, with the second set using the extender and loosened straps. I do feel like I am getting a rounder shape, but I understand that feeling of compression that some people in my size range have said that they had
So this puts me in a real pickle. I love this bra. It’s a gorgeous shade of inky blue and the light on the lace reflects a a lighter shade. The traditional bows adorn this bra, with the addition of little twinkling gem drops. I saw a review, though I forget whose it was, and they said that the little jewels were like stars shining in the night sky. I can agree with that sentiment. They add a delicate elegance and I find this bra simply delicious!
So what do I do with it? Do I wear it with my extender under tops that I know will not show the sight quadding, save it for when/if I lose weight and volume and it will fit better, or simply pass it on? I have not decided. It’s too beautiful a bra for me to want to give away or trade, but I also know that I might never loose the weight to fit in it.
Such a heartache. I knew that I had a chance of it being too small, but I was hoping that it would work.
