While I’m in a period of wakefulness (and not coughing my guts up), I figured I’d review the two 65Gs that were sent to my friend in LA for me to pick up while I was there on holiday this past weekend.
The two bras were sent to me from someone in one of my Facebook groups. She’s pregnant and won’t be able to wear them again for a while, so she sent this and the S Mojito to me as part of a really kind offer. I was unsure if 65G would be too big or not, as I only knew that my former 70E S Szykus ... was too small. I just wasn’t sure how much too small it was. Given the great opportunity to try this size and cut, I decided to go for it. I figured that they might be too big without the cookies, but fit with, and if they don’t fit at all, I’d pass on or trade with the same good vibes/karma with which I received them.
I have tallish roots that are shallow and narrowish. My fullness leans towards center full and even, with a little bit of fob. My tissue is soft and malleable, as well as pendulous which adds to the functionally fob and short roots (tallish but shallow). I gained fullness on top and on bottom with the growth that I experienced in the fall last year, but my soft tissue still doesn’t play well sometimes. It’s a bit like putting pudding into bras sometimes. I need depth at the wire and only average depth at the apex.
This bra is a lovely darker nude with a light shimmer. I think I have seen it referred to as “biscuit” and I can understand that. It’s a bit darker than my skin colour. It reminds me of “Nude” or “suntan” pantyhose. The fabric is smooth, and the center gore has a bow with a little pearl dangle. The bow and the straps are a little bit lighter than the rest of the bra. This has the classic 3 part foam cups with the cotton lining cookie pockets which open up facing the wearer instead of facing the cup of the bra as they do in the CHP. The band is classic power knit and stretches nicely. I’m ok with the loosest hooks...it’s comfortable.
The fit of the bra is pretty much as expected...too big without the cookies, but pretty perfect with. It’s possible that post ovulation/pre-period boobs *might* fill the gap without the cookies, but I don’t know. Since I am sick, I expect that will be a bit delayed, but I’ll try it again then and see if I can fill out the cups with the swelling. The straps are on the wide side (the Ewa norm), but not as wide as I was expecting...not that much wider than my 65FF/70F BM/PL. The wires are still surprisingly narrow. I clock them out at 5” or just a smidge wider. I think it’s a tiny bit narrower than the Mojito. I have marked it as fits...in the initial fit bit, I marked it as doesn’t fit, because without the cookies, it doesn’t. But I marked the cup aspect in the assessment as not a problem, because with the cookies, it does fit. My pictures are marked as to which is which, but once you get to the angle pics, it is pretty obvious which is which.
It’s a good basic bra, however I don’t find the colour especially suits my complexion. It’s ok, and would probably do the job in a pinch, but I know that I can find other fleshy toned bras that are closer to my complexion than this. This bra has some nice aesthetics, and with the cookies in, fits me pretty well, but it’s not quite right for me, so I’ve made arrangements to exchange it for a 65FF PL that I know will be better for me. I’ll keep my eyes out for better nude/fleshy tone bra like this. The Bravissimo Satine with houndstooth has potential...

Perfect cups for me (soft tissue, narrow root, close set). The band is uncomfortably tight/firm, though 65 worked for me out of the box in some other Ewa colorways; if you're between band sizes, sister size up.
This seems like a really useful and great bra, so I'm planning to get this in a 32FF (band up/cup down sister size). Smooth and nude-colored, this is a perfect T-shirt bra. This has been a serious gap in my bra-drobe.
Materials: 30% polyester, 20% cotton, 5% elastane, 45% something I can't see because the label is sewn in. Polyamide?

I was very hopeful but while this bra technically fits it feels like too much bra. The band also though loose enough for a hand feels too tight. The gore is slightly too tall to be comfortable for me. The bra brings everything up front and centered but I prefer a more minimized look. This bra lets me know I have boobs somehow lol. It’s a pretty tan bra. I appreciate the slightly darker beige and details like thicker glossy-ish straps. And the seam lines did not show through the dark but thin T-shirt I tried it on with

Band runs tighter than a normal 65, but it's wearable with an extender. The cups seem smaller than an average 65G S bra. It would be do-able for my smaller side, but I get a bit too much quad on my large side. I estimate the cups on this bra are about 1/2 cup size smaller than a normal 65G.

A perfect fit and a very practical everyday bra with subtle feminine details. Gives moderate cleavage without the pads, and incredible, extreme cleavage with. The seams don't show through thin clothing and it's overall very comfortable to wear, giving a projected and semi-rounded side profile. The band definitely runs small; this one fits more like a true 28, so if you're at the larger end of a band size I'd recommend sizing up. The cup also runs a hint smaller by maybe half a cup, which in my case means that it actually fits better than my other 30G S styles, but it may prompt others to size up instead.

Original review for 65G found here: http://bra.pe/XP6l/
This is my second Pralinka in the size 65G. I use this as my everyday go-2 nude bra. This fits exactly the same as my other 65G. After having this bra in multiple sizes and having worn it often I can say the quality is awesome. It has held up very well through wash and wear. The only down side is the sheer overlay of the cup can snag easily if you're not careful. Other then that, as long as you're careful washing it, it remains in great condition.

I first purchased this, twice, in size 65FF. See review here: http://bra.pe/XP1l/
*All pictures taken for this 65G were with the cookies in.
My breast have increased in size over the last two month, and since I absolutely love this bra I purchased in the next size up. This bra is just as fabulous as my previously purchased ones. I do have to say in comparison to the 65FF, this bra has wider straps but the wires are the exact same size as on the 65FF. There is a little bit of tubing where the wire doesn't fill due to the higher wing height. I have found the band length to be consistent with the 65FF and 65G being virtually the same. The cups don't bite my armpits and that's a plus and I was originally concerned it might. I think I may be in between the two sizes and this 65G fits much better with the cookies in.
