  1. Material: The lace IS very thin, but not in a flimsy way. The pattern is not as garish as I was expecting; it's actually quite pretty. It's slightly itchy, and I can see the lace through a thick-ish tshirt. The seams are less apparent than my nipples through the shirt, so it's more the texture that shows through. The top edge of the cup is a little looser than on the Milosc because there's no ribbon, and that flares out a bit on me. I don't know what this means.

    Straps and Band: The straps are a little narrower than I'm used to, but not as narrow as the ... Koralik. The band is stretchy, almost as much as a Panache bra, and for that I'm not too happy. In order to get the band as tight as I'd like, I need to use the middle hook. Ideally, I'd like the straps to be closer together, but I'm petite with narrow-ish shoulders.

    Fit:The cup width is perfect, at least in the 65FF. This was the first bra I put on, and was thunderstruck that I happened to grab the one that fit me best. It's possible that the cups are a little further apart than I'd like, because I had to adjust my breasts outwards when I first put it on.

    Shape: It gave me a perfect rounded shape, and my boyfriend was very appreciative. I don't feel like I have a bra on, which either means it fits really well, or it doesn't strap me in as much as the Deco I just took off does. I'm wearing it around the house today to decide.

    • Is there really that much difference in the band in this bra between the 65FF and 65G? You have written in the stretched amount as 2" higher in the FF. I'm thinking of ordering from them but no one has reviewed 26 or 28's, yet their calculator suggests me a 30 (65), but they seem to be the same size as a lot of 28's. Is their sizing really that inconsistant?

    • Brittany at thin and curvy did a review on 26 bands here: http://www.thinandcurvy.com/2011/05/where-to-find-26-and-24-band-bras-and.html I also believe the 28's (60 in EU sizing) and under are special order only.

      I'm not the reviewer but to chime in about the sizing, I've heard that this style as well as the Onyks is looser in the band.

    • Honestly, I had someone else hold this band so I could measure, while I did the G on my own. So there is some user error there in the measurements. However, the FF absolutely *is* more stretchy. I would have been happy to keep the FF if it had a band like the G, which was almost as firm as the Miloscs.

      I did try to ask EM whether this was a fluke, and they didn't answer my question directly. They just said that differences in band could come from cup size. (Though, that doesn't quite apply here, as too-small cups can lead to the band feeling tighter, and too-big can make them feel looser.)

    Fit: Honestly, the cups didn't feel very different from the FF, and it was only after comparing photos that I realized the FF fit me better. The top edge gaps more in the G than the FF, and it comes up higher in the cup, without actually lifting me higher. Yet, I felt more supported than I did in the 65FF, for whatever that's worth.

    70E

    Hasn't set fit

    This bra is one of the most beautiful I've seen, and I'm so sad it is too big for me! I love the purple color and the delicate embroidery. It has a darling butterfly applique on one of the straps (this could be removed if someone doesn't want it to show through shirts.) This model seems slightly larger in the cup than the other HM model of the same size that I've tried. Profile is wonderfully rounded, and would likely provide great cleavage for someone who fit it better.

    Fits

    So finally have my Motyl that I was dreaming of (Ive got it few weeks ago). The fit is not as perfect as in 70DD - Ewa Michalak ยป Hm Cukiereczek (574) but is good enough to keep it and never let it go! It makes my boobs looking down tiny bit, but who cares ! I love the bra so much. The only thing I need to do is to replace fully stretched straps. Overall, im happy with it and cant wait to wear it :)

    Didn't fit

    Super cute.
    Got this from another Bratabasr user and wore it once or twice.
    It's very comfortable and the look achieved from the cups is very similar to a padded bra. Never experienced this from an unpadded bra before, so that's amazing to me :p
    Cups are narrow, close-set, room for projection, typical Polish bra plus awesome shape.
    Unfortunately this no longer fits me :/

      Queequeg0925 Like you, I've been busy with non-bra related issues, and AWOL from Bratabase until recently. I seem to be getting my priorities back in order now though. :D

      I saw you just moved? Does that mean a NEW and BETTER job???

    • 1

      Wanabee I did! :D No job yet, but I hope something will bite soon!
      I'm in a college town, so there have to be jobs available. Hopefully something good is lurking around somewhere ^_^

    30F/FF tall and narrow root, FoT

    The band on this is slightly too tight and fits better with an extender. The cups fit beautifully though. They give a nice rounded shape although it's not as lifted as I prefer. The wires are finally narrow enough for me. Straps are annoying because they constantly slide loose due to the fabric.

    This. Bra. Is. Beautiful. And I soooo want it to fit. But the cups are just too large for me. Sigh. The cups are constructed of a delicate sheer purple lace with embroidered pink flowers, adorned with a pink/purple satin ribbon bow on the gore, satin covered straps, and a thin, poofy butterfly on one shoulder. The straps are only half adjustable, which may be problematic to some users. I think this would best fit someone who is a UK 28FF/28G, as it feels as if this runs 1.5 cups large compared to UK sizes, maybe 1/4-1/2 size larger than other EM HMs.

    75G

    Didn't fit

    I normally wear a 34GG. This 75G is a perfect fit for me in the cups. The band is somewhat tight for me but not enough that I would prefer an 80; I use it with two hooks of an extender. I got it with matching panties from another seller. They were size 42 which turned out to be a perfect fit for me. There are only two hooks to this bra and I would have liked a third one.

    The bra is a dark violet color while the panties are the same violet but with a bit of midnight blue fabric on ... the bottom. The embroidery is lavender. There is a butterfly sewn to one side of the panties, and also one on the left band. It is nice to have a slight asymmetrical touch.

    One thing I notice with the bra is that there is some wrinkling between the edge of the cup and the side boning, as if there was a bit too much fabric. It is visible when the bra is not worn, but even more visible when it is. I don't know if this is a manufacturing fault or if this is standard for the bra. It isn't uncomfortable but looks a little strange.

    This bra gives me a rounded purple shape although the appearance from the front is not cakes on a plate. The gore is quite narrow as the wires have been sewn part overlapping, although the bra can still be folded - just not flat - along the middle. I appreciate this feature.

  9. HM Granatowy Motyl in 65E was my first EM bra. I bought it because of it's beautiful and delicate design. When I lost on weight, it became far too big in cups and lately I decided to find my first effuniak in my actual size. Happily, I have found it on balkonetka.
    The paricularity of this bra, is that the previous owner has changed the straps. There were two sort of straps in the original version: the first one were violet and wide, some users complained that they were itchy. The second type of straps were fully adjustable blue ones, with a violet ribbon in the front part. ... Theses straps were extremely strechy and I had to reajust them several times a day.
    My new straps are blue, wide and wery comfortable, much more than the original ones. As the straps constitue a part of the band in the back, the band is much more stable now. The original band in this model is very strechy.
    Concerning the cups, they run normal for the HM style which means that I had to go down one cup size (I wear 65e in padded styles). The cups are a little bit smaller than in other HMs though.
    The center gore is very high, like in others HMs, which is sometimes unconfortable at the end of the day.
