After my fit issues with the 65G - Kinga » Yvette Semi Padded (BC-463) that I mentioned in my review, I was graciously sent this bra from AGBras, since she’s a very close size to me (but different shape) and has become quite familiar with Polish brands outside of Ewa Michalak and Comexim. You could say it was sent for Bra Science. Knowing how it fits her vs me allows her some valuable information that she can then pass to me on other brands, sizes, and shapes/styles. She sent another bra to test with this one, and another Gorsenia in a different style ... (but it’s not here yet).
So this bra is a pretty basic black bra. Buuut, I’m ok with that. I’m quite happy with black because my work uniform is black or mostly black (I have blue scrubs tops for my pharmacy shifts, but I still tend to wear a thin black tee underneath). So I’m really into dark bras with my work uniform as I’m too nervous about colour transfer to a lighter bra (which is probably not a legit concern but whatever). I do gravitate to my black bras most. She said that this was a workhorse kind of black bra, and I can understand why. While it’s a little bit decorated on top, the bulk of the cups are a thicker, smooth satin like material. The decoration on top isn’t quite lace...I’m not sure exactly what it is called...it’s not exactly lace but not embroidered either. In any case, it’s not overly frilly, but is pretty simple yet classy.
The fit of the band is a little bit snug. I was aware of it frequently yesterday. I would not say that it is painful, though it’s a little bit, as I have pressure on my sternum. Today I tried with an extender (hooked onto the tightest bra hooks and hooked on the loosest hooks of the extender). I would say that I almost feel like it wanted to shift up. I don’t think that it did, but it was noticeably looser. More comfortable though. Still kinda aware of it throughout the day. I think I might prefer it with no extender except for when I’m relaxing on my couch. I think part of this fit aspect is related to the center gore...it’s a bit wide at the bottom. Although I’m splayed, unsupported, I do prefer something narrower. The cups fit pretty well, but I feel like I am on the edge of them being too small. There’s also something about the cup fit, as viewed from the side, that’s not quite right. Perhaps upside down 7 shape from being too small? That being said, I would have to agree that the cups are pretty narrow with plenty of immediate depth. Yay! The do have built in side support pads which I think aren’t necessarily important for me. I’m already center full...no need to bring my boobs closer together. The cups do have a strip of silicone along the cup edge, but as it’s not stretchy or restrictive, it’s perfectly fine with my soft, pendulous tissue.
All in all, it’s a nice simple bra with a little classic style. Nothing amazing about it. It’s a more natural look, but still pretty good. I can see how it could be a workhorse bra for someone. It’s not quite the right one for me, but it’s not bad. I prefer the fit and comfort of the other black bra she sent over this, but I don’t officially own it yet...it was sent with this bra as a try and buy, so I am working out the buy details now. So for now I’ll hold off naming it or discussing it much until I officially own it. I’m also still waiting for m 30FF Curvy Kate Lifestyle bra in black to arrive (was sent out July 12th from England so hopefully it will be here soon) and it’s also a bit basic but also sophisticated.
Will I keep it or pass it on? I’m not sure, but if I pass this or the other one she’s sending me on, it’s already decided on who top offer it to. It’s definitely good to try this. I’m looking forward to trying the other one.
