Ah, where do I begin with this bra?
It's a little different than other BM bras I have.
For starters, the wires seemed a lot wider than 70FF - Ewa Michalak » Bm Fluo when I first put it on. After measuring, I can confirm that indeed they are wider (and longer!).
However, they angle really oddly and I do think the wires struggle to stay in my imf. However, this is an impression I get after about ten minutes of wearing it and needs to be tested out thoroughly. I will update the review in a week or so. edit: identified the issue. The cups ever so ... slightly lack immediate projection other BM bras have. This bra fits more like 70FF - Ewa Michalak » Sf Blueberry (1420) than any of my BMs.
Three part cups, with the tops being lined with stretchy tulle and stretchy lace over it. It is really, really, REALLY beautiful. My photos don't do justice to the colour of this bra. It's a dark reddish pink. The cups are sturdy at the bottom and the stretch lace accommodates for my asymmetry very well. The cups seem short, though. Not annoyingly so, just I feel a little more exposed in this bra.
The band is absolute perfection. It is (a lot) looser than Fluo, but tighter than 70FF - Ewa Michalak » Bm Bakłażan (1417) . It is one of those bands that doesn't need to be broken in to get the perfect snug feel. Now, the difference between Fluo and Rubin is confusing me, since both are double layered bands and the fabrics seem similar. I think that maybe they started to make bands a little looser. Just a hunch on basis of all three of the new bras I ordered having looser bands than the older I ordered (Fluo).
As a last minute alteration, Ewa made the straps longer for me. As I suspected, it was the straps making me feel uncomfortable in the other bras. They were just too short! She added 10cm to this bra and it is absolute perfection. I have to tighten the straps! I've never known this feeling in my life!
The gore tacks and doesn't bother me at all. The little bow is very elegant and cute at the same time. I love it.
In this brascapade I have realised that a perfect fit might be unachievable unless the bra is made especially by your measurements which I suspect is hard to find someone to do that. I've made my peace with it. Close enough is good enough. And BM Rubin is a beautiful bra that is close enough for me.
Update after wearing it a while:
This bra is actually my best fitting BM! Initially it seemed like the cups would slide down a lot but they do not at all and actually keep the girls in better than any other BM I have. I do not quad in this bra at any point during my cycle and I find myself reaching for it A LOT.
