I'm currently measuring a 27.0" underbust, which I find to be quite surprising. The band on this bra stretches to 27.5" before there's wire distortion. I'm wearing this bra on the loosest hooks, but I feel like I could get away with the third hookset already due to slight sliding.
I think that the cups fit amazing. I feel like I've got a fantastic happy medium going on with it. My smaller side has a bit of gapping at the top of the lace, while my larger side is straining a bit, but isn't bulging. Pictures don't show the straining as much, but as I'm sitting here writing (and ... admiring my breasts), I can feel my larger side cutting into the lace a little bit. This affirms, to me at least, that I'm in between a KK/L cup. I think when I hit high tide, this bra is going to be too small. You'll also notice that on the side view on my larger side, not all of my tissue is encapsulated by the bra cup, but it's pretty close.
I'm pretty happy with the fit, albeit it's not perfect, but it's 10x better than my current 65J bras that are digging mercilessly basically everywhere.

The cup construction of La Gloria is the typical BM style, with 2 lower vertical sections (1 seam) and 1 upper horizontal section, with a wedge area that connects the straps to the cups securely. The upper horizontal section is always made of a stretch lace, and this particular model has the upper lace section lined as well, which can vary by model. This lining doesn’t provide bulk, just modesty so you can’t see the nipples through the bra but does not stop them from showing through a shirt on a cold day. The BM style bra is not padded and provides full and separated coverage.
The ... band measures 22.875” and stretches to 29”. It has the standard 3 hooks with 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: 15.75”
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 width is 6”, gore 0.5” wide and 4.15” tall, and wing of 4.75”.
While I didn’t try La Gloria in a 60K, I do have BM Crazy in that size which is the same lace and seemingly same liner, just with hot pink accents instead of black. To compare, Crazy had a 21.75”-29.75” band, 12.25”-15” cup depth, height of 9.25”, gore 0.6” and 4.15” width and height, and a 5” wing. This shows that my La Gloria has a firmer band and a lower wing, which is surprising, but the cup difference is logical in increase.
As for fit, the cups are perfectly hugging and the gore is just under 1 finger off the sternum which is standard for me. This one fits a lot better than its counterpart, BM Crazy, which is surprising as I anticipated it to fit the same since the lace and lining are the same. The mesh lining behind the stretch lace seems firmer than with Crazy, but not as firm as with Sofia.
