A little about my boobs first. I'm high set, projected, with tall narrow roots, I look FoB when standing and thought I was for a really long time but I'm actually even to slightly FoT when bent over, I'm wide set with little center fullness, I have soft tissue, with a lot of muscle that screws up calculators.
I bought this second-hand on a whim. I thought it was gorgeous and frankly bought it on looks alone being completely unfamiliar with the brand. Boy, am I glad I have little impulse control. This turned out to be "the bra", the one I compare to all others. This is my ... holy grail bra.
First, look at it. It's stunningly beautiful. It's whimsical, it's sophisticated, it's elfy. That's right, elfy. I want to frolic through forests and climb trees in bare feet and this bra.
Okay, with that out of my system I should probably discuss fit.
As I said, I bought this second-hand, but I really don't think it was used, if so it wasn't much, because the band was still tight tight tight when I got it. I have a tight 27" and comfortable 29" underbust and like a loose 28 (or an extender) or a tight 30. This 65 feels like what I imagine a 29 would. It's snug and supportive, stays put, and disappears against my bony ribcage. It's a perfect band for me on the loosest hook.
The cups fit me really well. Standing up straight with shoulders where they should be they are perfect. The wires are in my fold and perfectly follow my root. The gore keeps my soft tissue from escaping anywhere and tacks nicely. If I slouch I get a bit of gaping near the inner gore where I have no fullness. The bra expects some there, I think, but I just don't have it. That gap doesn't bother me. As I said, it's only upon slouching (which I shouldn't be doing anyway), isn't noticeable under clothes, and is minimal anyway. The SM model is not made in an E cup, and I don't think it would fit me if it were since the rest of the cup is filled nicely even when the inner gap is present, I bet I'd quad right out of it.
The straps are nice and fully adjustable, I just find the whole thing very comfortable.
I wear this bra as often as I can while also wanting to hoard it forever and ever. It's my favorite bra, my introduction to Polish bras and their wonderfully narrow underwires, and the death of my bank account.
By the way, Burek supposedly translates to mongrel. What an odd name for a gorgeous thing.
