S Zielony Pieprzyk in 60L
The S Zielony Pieprzyk is a padded balconette style bra in a Deep Hunter Green with black lace. The cups are lightly foam lined plus they have removable pads that are labeled by EM for the correction of asymmetry. The pockets for the pads in this bra are sewn completely into the bottom of the cup, unlike the CHP style which is only sewn on the curve of the wire and not across the depth of the cup. The color of this bra is spectacular, and the pictures do not do it justice at all.
The band measures 23.25” with a max stretch of ... 29.5”. 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: 12.75”
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 cups are 9” in height at the center of the cup, and consist of 4 sections-3 lower vertical and 1 upper horizontal. The removable pads that were included were quite small in comparison to the size of the pockets & to my other Ewa padded bras. While I don’t use these removable pads, I know this could be a concern for those who need to use them, as they wouldn’t fill the space nearly as well as a larger cookie would.
The straps are wide set, which is a common issue. It has a deep green ribbon on the front 2/3rd of the strap, which was sewn on while the strap was stretched making it accommodating. The back 1/3rd of the strap doesn’t have this ribbon and is fully stretchable. If you read my PL Dark Magenta review, you’ll understand why I mention this as a key point.
The center gore is set at a max of .57” and the wires touch at the top then slightly overlap mid-gore before separating into the two cups. The height at the gore is 4”. The wires are 6” from top to top, and the wing height is 4.9”. For the 70K, the center gore was .625”, so slightly wider without the mid-gore overlap, but the height, wires, and wing were the same.
