Finally got my EM order from almost two months ago! This bra is just sooooooo beautiful. The magenta overlay is breathtaking! Onto the fit: this fit much better than I was expecting. The wires stayed in my IMF, as far as I could tell, the gore tacked, the cup wasn’t too tall. My boobs my not look like Gosia’s (I can dream) but I like the soft hills look. I don’t get overspill with the pads, so I might use them every once in a while. I like the straps on this one a lot, with them not being too stretchy or rigid. Weird comment: the pads appear to be small for the pockets.

PL Dark Magenta 60KK
PL Dark Magenta is a padded plunge bra in black with gorgeous purple lace accents. It comes with light foam lined cups, as well as removable pads for asymmetry. The cookie pockets for the pads are sewn completely into the cups, like the S style, compared to the CHP which are only sewn on the bottom of the cup.
The band measures 22.4” to a max stretch of 28.75”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops which seem to be the standard for the larger cup range.
Cup Depth as measured by:
1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure ... into the cups without any resistance.
This measurement is: 12.25”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
This measurement is: 14”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The height at the center of the cup is 8.625” making more of a full coverage cup. It consists of 4 sections, 3 lower vertical and 1 upper horizontal section. As with S Zielonny Pieprzyk 60L, this bra came with smaller cookies in comparison to the cookie pockets and the other Ewa bras I have. While I don’t use them, I know this is worth noting since many of you do use them and might be in for a shock as these cookies wouldn’t give the coverage that other ones do.
The straps are *not* stretchy. At first I thought it was just stiff material, and then I realized the straps themselves are the same elastic stretchy straps, but that they had sewn the ribbon onto the straps while the straps were unstretched! This means that the elastic can only stretch as far as the darn ribbon, which in this case is not at all. Since the ribbon covers the whole length of the strap, it makes it difficult to adjust the strap, and at any setting other than too loose, the straps are too stiff to be comfortable. With a bit of sewing skill, I can remove this ribbon and re-sew it on partially with the straps stretched, making the ribbon similar to my Zielony.
The center gore is set at .625” wide which seems to be about standard, and has a height of 3.25”. The wing is 4.75” and the wires are 6.2” from top to top.
