I previously reviewed this bra in detail in a 65G, http://bra.pe/X272/ , and would have loved to have found this in a 65GG to compare as well as to wear during my time of the month when my other bras fit too small. The band is definitely tight for me now, but I think I can get away with wearing with an extender to get a fit more like a 65GG. I have to say I do love the proportions of the cup in this size 60H as opposed to the 65GG. With the 65GG the apex of the bra feels higher and pointier. With the 60H I feel the cup has a much rounder shape with an apex that better suits my breast shape. While I don’t consider this a bra win, it is definitely not a bra loss! There isn’t a whole lot of data for BM’s in a 60H, so I hope this review helps someone out there.
The lace on this bra is gorgeous. I love the bright summery turquoise and it makes me so happy to see some juicy color from Ewa. This bra is fun! With the bright blue lace, the sheer white peek-a-boo mesh, and the unexpected polka-dot bows this was a no brainer for me. It is not overtly sexy, it is cute and girly. Which is still sexy but in a different way - a more me way.
The lace and mesh are both really soft and seem to be holding up well. I've had this set long enough that it has been washed a few times and it still looks great! ...I've had a few BMs get pilled up right away, but this isn't one of them.
In terms of fit, this is more of the same. Good projection, narrow but hard wires, gore is a little high for me and the band runs tighter with not a lot of stretch to it. The straps are easy to adjust, stay in place, and adjust short enough for me.
I got two thongs to go with my bra, I got them in 38 but should have gotten a 36. They run a little big and I don't need the extra space for my butt. They don't fall off or look sloppy, but sizing down would have been better for me. I love the lace on top of the mesh, it's an adorable style. Read more 129 more words
After having great success with my BM Wenecja, I just had to have more in the BM cut. Oh my gosh the color is amazing! This bra is playful and fun. A very vivid aqua color indeed. The lace is very soft and not scratchy at all. The backband is TTS for a 65 band with the lace continuing on the band all the way around. On the side of the band where it meets the cup, there is a white net accent with a strip of white with black dot ribbon. There is also a small bow on the intersecting point of the band detail. The back ...clasp is a 3x4 and I’m so happy about this as it’s my preference. The center gore has a cute white mesh diamond pattern with the bottom lined with the white with black dot ribbon. There is a cute white bow with black dots on the center gore. The cups are a vivid aqua lace over white ridged mesh for the lower portion of the cup and an aqua lace with a white stretch underlayer for the upper portion of the cup. The straps are a soft smooth aqua elastic with white hardware. There is a white with black dot bow where the cup meets the strap. I’m so happy with the color, the look, the quality, and the comfort!
I’m especially happy with the back clasp having a 3x4 closure, unlike my BM Wenecja that has a 2x4 closure on the same BM size 65G. I’m confused why some 65G have the 3 rows vs some that only having 2 rows of hooks. Moving forward I’ll be asking in advance before ordering in this size if it has the 3x4 closure as I feel it gives a much better band fit comfort for me.
I purchased the matching thong panties in size 38. The front has a sheet white center panel with aqua lace overlay in an upside down V pattern. The edge of the V shape is edged with white with black dot ribbon. There are two small matching white with black dot bows towards the bottom. The sheer white fabric wraps around the the back. The lower edge has a fine aqua thread wrap. The upper part has the same aqua stretch lace. It meets in the back and has a bigger white bow with black dots. The back thong part is made of the sheer fabric and has an aqua scalloped elastic that runs along both sides. There is a white cotton gusset in the middle of the crotch. Read more 322 more words
My stats: 26HH/J according to the ABTF calculator, slightly FOT, tall and narrow roots, center full, close set and high set.
The look: I love polka dots! This bra is pretty much exactly my taste look-wise, even though I wear nothing but neutral and boring clothes over it; isn't it funny how our taste in bras differs from that of actual clothes that the general public sees? Anyway, it's a bright teal color and has polka dot ribbon along the bridge and wings and bows made of the same ribbon at the straps and gore. The black dots on the ribbon do seem to rub off quite easily. ...It has a 3x4 clasp (my favorite!) and the hardware matches the teal of the bra. I also managed to find matching panties in size 46 at levana which I somehow altered down to fit like a 36/38, they're a bit higher waited than they're meant to be but it looks cute and compliments the pin-up look that this bra gives off.
The fit of this is ok, the cups are supportive and are neither quadding nor gaping but the band is a bit loose unfortunately. The gore is a bit high and wide but it's doable. The straps are too far apart and the wires are also a bit too wide.
I somehow managed to scoop this up in 55HH which is a better fit so I have this listed to pass onto someone else. I want to keep 2 of the same bra because it's just so pretty but it seems greedy. Read more 156 more words
This is my second risky final sale purchase from Levana Bratique. This bra is so beautiful!! I was about 90% sure it wouldn't fit, but I hoped it somehow would because I loved it so much. It is SO GORGEOUS. The color is absolutely amazing. I love the shiny accents and scalloping on the lace. I love the peekaboo gore and side mesh. I love the white lining under the bright blue. I love the polka-dot bows. I just love it. Never have I been so disappointed to have such asymmetrical breasts.
The fit is so close! The band is comfortably snug, not tight ...like I was expecting based on other reviews. The gore tacks, the straps have the amazing EM stretch that keeps them up even thought they're a bit wide-set for me. The cups come up high enough that there is no quadding on my larger side. My larger boob fills out the cup ok, but there's such a an obvious gap on the smaller side that it just looks stupid. I wish I could take a magic wand and even myself out. Because of the cup construction, there's no way a cookie or two would work. SIGH.
I didn't expect the Bm style to look as cute on me as it does, and I think it would be even better if I went down a cup size. The cups are tall, but not granny-bra tall, and the details just make it adorable. If I could possibly get this bra is a 75D, I'd snap it up in a hot minute. Read more 160 more words

The fit of this is pretty good. The band actually holds my S&S all day long! The cups are supportive and are neither quadding nor gaping. Now onto the negatives: The gore is a bit high and wide but it's doable. The straps are too far apart and the wires are also a bit too wide, so I may get a better fit in a 55H BM. Since this is discontinued I'm going to hold onto this one. Read more 141 more words
This bra jabbed and stabbed and was not wearable for more than maybe an hour tops at a time. Between the top half of the cups wrinkling and the wire inching down my ribs, it just wasn't going to work. I've passed it on after I received it from another bratabase user it didn't work for either.
I have been hoping to try a Polish bra. I found this 85H - Ewa Michalak » Bm Lazur on sale in close to my size (went one cup size up, but I probably need an H in most of my bras). I wasn't terribly surprised the band was really snug. It took some work to get it hooked, but after the first wear, it was okay. I might try it with an extender to see if that helps with the cup issues, at all. Speaking of which, the cup is way too small. I have quite a bit of quad-boob, even with the stretch lace. ...The width of the wires is good and the immediate projection isn't bad, but it's just too small. I would probably want to go up to maybe a 90 or 95 HH. Or perhaps a different cut?
Update: with a generous extender this is MUCH more comfortable, but still provides almost no support because while the band is now an okay length, the volume of the cup is way to small and it's just a boob hat. Also, the mesh has started to rip in several places after single wear and wash. I'm sure the strain of the too-small size is not helping, but I'm not sure it's worth trying EM bras anytime soon.

I've wanted this bra since the first pic I saw. I love the teal color spectrum and the white with black polka dot accents are so fun!! I tried at least one other size and ended up settling on this one. There is just a tiny bit of empty space at the top.of the cups near the straps, but in this stiffer lace style going down a cup size gives me in cup quadding at the horizontal seam. Theres some slight pulling across the front. After removing the bra I think maybe along the bottom edge the cups are a bit wide set there, so my center full boobs might be climbing out the top a bit at the middle. The band doesn't feel tight, I think it gets bunched a bit at the bottom due to my being short waisted. I like strap placement on the 80DDs better but this works. Overall it's pretty comfy and gives a nice shape so I think it's a keeper!
