This bra and brief set I've managed to receive today, earlier than the release date, and arriving only a week after I ordered it! Possibly as it was my birthday (my boyfriend got me a EM voucher which I used last week) and possibly because I saw the upcoming preview from BraObsessed (who I would have bought it from but my voucher was for EM!) and I asked her nicely.
Anyway - as I'm the first, I've taken all the measurements, and taken loads of photos of the bra and briefs.
The bra band runs a band size tight! It stretched to 28 inches (this stretched band measurement I ... added to Bratabase)! I couldn't do it up. But I thought NO...no I do not accept this. I want this bra to work. I don't want to send it back. I thought right... first I'll try stretching it out a bit, as bras end up stretching anyhow and if that doesn't work I'm using an extender.
After stretching it, I then managed to do it up first time. I just took my super tight and it's 28.3, snug around 30. I just measured the stretched measurement again and its now around 29/29.5. Excellent... it still runs tight though for a 30 but at least it's now wearable for me
Okay so the quality is great as you would expect. I find the zig zag hem a bit scratchy but I just have sensitive skin.
The cup lace is a teal kind of colour, the bows are ivory, the straps are an icy blue shade, and the inner lining is beige.
The only thing that isn't what I expected is that the inner beige lining can be seen above the bow from the front. Actually one of the bows just fell off, so that's another thing I wasn't expecting, though I think it may have been my fault as I think my nail struck it. I will have to re-attach it. The other bow is well secured so I'm sure it's an outlier.
The cups allow for a fair amount of immediate depth, and give quite a pointy look. As my boobs are slightly fuller on top, the cups are on the verge of having the neckline digging in, which you can see in the side pics
The band has four columns and two rows of hook and eye fastenings
The straps are too wide for my frame, and I'm considering moving them inwards so they are centre-pull in style.
Otherwise, it is so beautiful. I absolutely adore anything in cold green tones. A rival to my CHP Mietusek.
As for the name Mohito, it definitely looks the part.
