    Didn't fit

    S Diament Multiway (60KK) is a smooth black bra in a satin finish that comes with 3 sets of removable straps. The straps are a standard pair, a “padded for comfort” pair that are wider over the shoulders, and then a 3rd longer singular strap to use in halter style. The cups are standard S style format, with 3 lower sections and one upper horizontal section. It is lightly foam lined, and comes with removable cookies.

    Details/oddities noted:
    I have tried 9 S style bras so far, and this one is definitely unique. The cups have a lot more give to them than the others which is odd and makes ... this one a lot less supportive. The unstretched cup measures smaller than my other S style 60KK bras, yet the stretched cup measures larger than my 60L S style bras. I haven’t compared the foam density yet, but this one has different qualities for sure.

    As for fit:
    I do not rock this bra like Frazzleberry does, that is for sure!

    The cups fit almost like my 60L Zielony currently does (hugging my breasts perfectly but with a bit more spillage) *except* for the base of the cup, which is too shallow and won’t let my breasts into its sacred space. While the S style is notoriously shallow, I haven’t experienced this much lower cup resistance before, even within the same size.

    With the straps on, the cups are small but should still be wearable under most of my shirt choices, though the bottom of the cup issue is less than ideal. I planned on wearing this one without the straps, but the bra structure is not as sturdy as my other S style bras, so unfortunately the cups collapse horribly without the straps on, so that is out. (And yes, I know that it specifically states on Ewa’s site that this one is not intended to be worn strapless, but since I am able to wear my other S style bras without putting the straps over my shoulders, I figured this one would be perfect for that purpose.) I don’t use the cookies, though I wish I could with this one due to the structure issue. The extra padding should stabilize the bottom of the cups better, but unfortunately this would result in my nips sitting above the cup even without a swoop n scoop, so it is not an option.

    The plus is that the padded straps are super comfortable so that is what I'll be using. I can't try them as an X back though since I have the straps completely out in standard formation.

    My nips stick out the top of the cup with a Swoop n Scoop so I refrained from doing one, but I am not sure if this will be problematic with all day wear, so this one may ultimately become a no go like so many bras before it.

    Overall, I am not impressed with this bra enough to try it again in the 60L. I had higher expectations, but this one definitely fell short of my visions for it.

    I went overboard with the photos, trying to capture the shape difference and oddities of the fit without the straps, with the halter strap, and with the padded comfort straps. Hopefully it is helpful instead of annoying for those considering this bra.

    And for the technical aspects:
    All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band measurements for the same reason.

    The band measures 22” and stretches to a max of 28.5”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.

    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”
    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 15”

    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 cup height seemed short for this size at 8.25”, though my FC/S Belladonna Nununu was the same height. My 60Ls are all 9” tall, and the 60KK Porto was 8.5” which is more logical in comparison. The wire width is within the normal range at 6.25” wide. The gore is tall in comparison to my other S style bras at 4.25”.
    My other 60KK was 3.375”, and my 60Ls are 4” 4.5” and 4” tall. I find this odd since a taller gore typically means more stability which is not the case with this bra.

      An S that is so short. Weird! I love that though. I’m sorry it doesn’t work for you.

      aw man that's too bad that it didn't work out :( .. I wonder if the shortness is a thing with this particular model? Looking back on my measurements, I noticed it was measured at 8.5 also...

      On another note, I also have permanent marks due to wide straps, I didn't entirely realise it until I saw the pic and was like..hey I have those lol... I also have some what seems to be permanent bruise marks from too wide wires >.>

      I have permanent marks under my boobs from the wires rub my rib flares, marks from the gore sitting on my breast tissue, marks from too wide set straps... I feel like people don't talk about these things that happen with heavy breasts. Everyone says the marks are supposed to go away, but they just don't. I've only seen one person say that this happens, Georgie from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust.

      Sorry this did not work out. I think all of you pictures are always very helpful because it really shows all of the angles of a bra.

      I am assuming that the shortness has to do with the cup distortion when changing the strap positions (halter vs X back vs standard etc) so Ewa designed it shorter to lessen said distortion? That’s at least what my mental logic tells me! Maybe that is why the foam seems more flexible as well, to better accommodate the lessened horizontal volume availability?

      The shortness isn’t too much of an issue (aside from the nip slip haha) but the lack of firm structure is more alarming since the base collapses. The height may be good for you Sovavosi, but I would be concerned with the base being a big issue for you since it has even less immediate space and wants to collapse. If you want to borrow it to try out, just let me know. 💕

      Straps and wires…why must they be so body destructive? At least I know I am not alone with the permanent markings. (Thank you Frazzleberry for sharing my pain with the strap marks.)
      Aside from Panache, I never get a tack so I don’t get gore wire marks thankfully. I haven’t noticed base wire marks, though that doesn’t mean they aren’t there, just that I haven’t noticed them yet, haha.)

      I spent over two weeks without wearing straps on and it didn’t change my strap marks at all, so I can confidently say they are permanent. I assume that most women don’t talk about the marks being permanent since 80% of women are wearing the wrong size? Too big band with too small cup would result in a loose unsupportive band that wouldn’t give wire dig in and with cups too small the straps would definitely be more inset (and float off the arm area) so far less likely to produce lasting marks.

      Thank you braluv. My theory is that everyone looks for a different problem area within a bra, so the more photos the better chance of helping to answer those “visual” questions we all have, right?

      This bra was my one and only venture into S territory. I found it to be extremely jiggly and unsupportive and that's why I never tried another S.

      Stinkmouse If mine is anything like yours, don't judge the S style on this bra! This one is not like my other S styles in fit or support. The normal S is much better.

      *I forgot to note that Kaśka discouraged me from getting this, stating it wouldn't work as well in this size range. Also, when I tried ordering it in a 60L last year I was told no.
      Why didn't I remember that? Haha!
