This bra is lovely. I wasn't into it at first and I didn't get it when Ewa had it, but then it sort of grew on me and I was sad I had missed it.
I ended up finding it in one of my wearable sizes at Brava. Thankfully, they ship to the US and I picked it up along with the matching bottoms in a size 36.
It came and I squealed when I opened the package, it is so pretty! It also inexplicably smells like Anthropologie. I can't describe the smell, but if you've ever been in an Anthropologie store, or had them ship you clothing from a ... retail location, you know the smell. Like their Volcano candle mixed with smoke. I don't know, but I love the smell so this isn't a bad thing to me!
It does measure out to be a 70F in depth, but it fits me like a 65F. The band is tighter than a 70, and measures 30" stretched. Depth is what it should be but I find the materials to be less stretchy than other BMs, so the measured unworn depth is what my 65F/70Es measure when they are on my body and the Sofia doesn't really stretch much when I put it on. Because it's firmer, the shape it gives is a little rounder than some other BMs and it looks quite nice I think.
The one concern I have about this is I bought this set to wear as a period set, as the crotch of the bottoms is black and I needed another BM in my larger size for hard and tender breasts. Since there's not much give in the cups I don't know if it'll work, it may be too firm for my comfort that time of the month but I'll have to wait to try.
The cups are a little high on me, but I'm functionally FoB with shallow upper root tissue so this isn't an unusual occurrence for me, there's just a single small wrinkle in the upper lace and it's not terribly noticeable without a top and not noticeable at all when dressed.
The lace is super pretty and I love the little polka dots in the pattern, they're a cute and playful touch on an otherwise sexier set. I also adore the back of the briefs, the lace on top of tulle is my favorite style second only to the double layer of tulle. What the underwear looks like will often determine if I buy a set or not and I love these ones. They only had a 36, with 38" hips I can sometimes make the 36 size work, usually if they are jersey knit, the mesh is a little snug just like the bra and I would prefer a 38. But, they don't look bad and they are comfortable so I'm content.
