I am in love with the Antonina lace! I added a photo of the garters, face mask, and thong along with the bra. You can see the areas that have the shimmery bits on the lace more on the garters, it's so pretty. My BM Antonina is my all time favorite bra. As always, the Ewa Michalak construction is precise and excellent in quality and design.
I got this because the PL style is my best fit right now after exclusively wearing EM for a few months and dealing with some growth/tissue migration. I suspect I have symmastia and I need a low gore so the only style I ... have found that is narrow with a low gore in 65G is the EM PL. I still fit 65FF in the BM and SF styles I have and the gores on those are at the very top of the height I can do comfortably so I have been wearing the PL for the gore, but it's not the best fit for me elsewhere. The straps are so wide on both PL styles I have. I moved them in and reinforced the sides myself on a different PL I have but I would need to size up to 65GG for Antonina if I wanted to move the straps in since there is some loss of cup volume when moving straps. I worry that a 65GG will be too tall and wide though. After a couple hours I had painful red marks on the armpit area so I am wearing it with an extender and that has resolved the issue so far. I don't want to move up to a 70 band for PL because the cup is wider/taller. Maybe the band will loosen and it will be more comfortable over time. I have soft tissue, narrow roots, center full, and I am functionally very bottom full/deflated on top due to major weight loss. Because I have soft tissue and am center full, the tissue spills into the center in this style, which isn't uncomfortable and I still feel support from the rest of the bra, but it does cause major cleavage boob sweat on hot days. I can jiggle around and bend over without any nipple slip so it's not major spillage. It's still very narrow, but not as narrow as some other EM styles I own. This bra also reminds me to have good posture (my posture is terrible) because it pokes a little in the armpit if I'm hunched over for a long time.
Overall, PL style is nice and it makes my boobs look fantastic. If I wasn't looking for a very low gore I would probably own one or two of these for days I wanted major cleavage or very low cut outfits but probably wouldn't wear them regularly because they're not the most comfortable style. I've written to Ewa Michalak asking about changes or other styles that may work but they always suggest I stick with the PL, so maybe they'll eventually add more variety in low gores. I'm just grateful to have found a few bras that are pretty, well made, and give me the support I need based on my extremely specific bra needs.
