    • Wow, it looks great. Too bad it hurts.

    • Pretty bra and looks nice on you. Hoping you can change out those wires. Looks like torture.

    • 1

      hows the immediate projection? is the same as a comexim plunge?

    • curious if you'll try an extender (to see if its partly painful because its too tight) or bending the wires out at the gore?

    • ok, and one more random - I see you havent treid Ewa's BM - did you see my brown lace BM? havent washed/worn yet but it fits me very nicely. 75J - Ewa Michalak ยป Bm Naomi (809)

    • dbmamaz, I haven't tried the BM style, because I think I read it is considered more full coverage than other bras. And I seem to not have good luck with unlined Polish bras.
      I think if I try it with an extender the band will be too big, but I'll try it when I get home. I haven't tried bending the wires (at the gore) on any of my bras, because I feel like it would change the fit of the cup (like the gore wouldn't tack anymore, and it would make the cup a little too open by the gore.)

    • I agree it looks wonderful.
      Prettyncharmeuse have you tried the 3DM style? I know there's nothing brown a this moment but I think this cut is likely to fit you as you seem to have a firm breast tissue. I would be only afraid about the cup cutting into your armpits (if you want to try one, I still have my 3dm burek in 70dd).

    I had almost given up on a perfect fit in an everyday-standard, beige padded balcony-type bra. I've tried at least 6 including EM S cut and resigned myself to 3-part half cups. Hallelujah, this one is IT thanks to wild_muses !!! Me: close set, narrow & short roots, even top to bottom but functionally FOB due to soft tissue, side fullness, ridiculous immediate projection needed. If I get the support I need at the wire and sides the girls become more FOT; if not they just sag into whatever is available or squish sadly flat. I like a lifted & centered rounded shape (between green & ... purple?). The Nicol fills the bill: narrow wires, deep at the bottom with less at the apex, perfect gore height and width, good control at the sides including boning. The cups are a construction I have not seen before: 4 part, with the two vertical seams coming in at a sharp angle, right to left. (That may help with pulling the side fullness in?) . The top section does have a solid top seam and comes in at an angle which could impact tall roots but helps to give me the shape I like. The band is firm but not too; its a good 'hug' and while not stretchy, it is generous for a 70/32. The wires stay in my imf with 12-15 hours wear and zero adjustments; I do not even feel this bra on. Soft cotton inside, smooth matte outside with seaming that is undetectable under knits. The padding is medium thickness similar to Comexim and less than EM or Cleo. Great for work since I have really prominent nipples! The cups are not too tall and there is no gaping at the strap or at the gore once I scoop & swoop. (Note if I do not s&s the girls do not fill out the top fully; there is extra room up there!). The gore touches at the top with a gentle curve down and is relatively narrow at the bottom (do wish we had a measurement for that, as it makes a big difference!). The padded wire channels have 1/2" of leeway which helped me clear my close set tissue by moving the wires to the outside. I have wide shoulders so the straps are perfectly positioned, but they might not work for narrower shoulders as they are far to the sides. The straps have soft fleecy insides, are fully adjustable, and are just stretchy enough to be comfortable while supporting. The overall construction is good, not luxury, but well-made with fleece in all the right areas. There are no frou-frous except a classy diamond dangle: this is a functional bra not trying to be sexy. The only con is that the label size and the tag size do not agree. Sewn in label says 70G/32G while the attached paper tag says 70G/32F. So I can't tell if Nicol is tts, but I can say it is most definitely NOT a 32F! Maybe a 32FF or a small 32G...Impimi seems to be working the bugs out, and I understand their customer service is very helpful to determine correct size. I know others have not been happy with the brand, but I'm a fan and may be buying Nicol in every color soon!

      TGIF (thank god it fits!) I think i might order another one of these, in the realm of a 30F, once i get some christmas money.

      Wow, Impimi Nicol sounds like a wonderful fit for you! Thank you for the detailed, technical review. Congratulations on finding a bra that meets your very specific fit requirements!

    • 1

      Oh man, this sounds like it might work for me, except the wide straps....

    • 1

      Dvrgrl812 I wonder if you could ask them to change the straps? I know they make custom sizes so they may be willing to do some alterations

    • Great news!!!

    The design of this bra is really nice. The fabric is very soft and it feels overall high quality. I really appreciate seeing a 4-section cup, 3x4 hook band, and wide straps in this size. It has fairly narrow wires and a fairly narrow gore, they've obviously thought a lot about the design and how it will work on full busts.

    However. The sizing runs crazy large. The band stretches to 34 and the cups were at least 2 sizes too large on me. If you're in the 34FF range, look at my listing. It's a great quality everyday bra and I'm sure it will serve someone well, just not me in this size.

    • Looks like there is lots of space for center projection. Fantastic :-)

    • 1

      There is! When I tried it on most of the extra room was toward the center.

    • What fit characteristics caused you to suggest it was 2 sizes too large? The center projection beckons me ;-)

    • 1

      The depth and height of the cup were too much for me, I could have fit at least another half a boob in it.

    • Well, then me, too. ;-) Thank you!

    • Beautiful bra! Too bad it doesn't work for you!

      wild_muses Love4Pollinators when I emailed Impimi and told them my measurements and what size I usually take in Comexim and Ewa (70HH/J and 70G/GG respectively), they suggested a 65H Adell. Which would completely fit your experience, but I had assumed was some kind of typo. ("Surely they mean a 70H?" I thought to myself.)

    • 1

      Interesting... i considered exchanging for a 65E but there's a review for one of those here and its measurements seem true to size. I'm not sure what to do.

    • I'm usually a 30GG with an extender (between band sizes) and the 65J in Unpadded fit really well except that it is built for more FoT or high roots. It gapes when I move but sits nicely when I stand up straight. I'm wondering if, going by the measurements, Impimi makes their padded and unpadded with the same depth, where Ewa, for example, recommends sizing down when yiu go unpadded. That might explain the cup size, but yeah, the band size is a bit on the larger size. Maybe just size down a band for the whole brand?

    • 1

      My cups were too big for me too, but only by about 1 cup size. The band I got was true to size.

    • Oh boy... I emailed them my regular sizes in Ewa Michalak and Comexim (50F/55E and 50HH), and they recommended I try a 55F. Not sure how I feel now.

    75H

    Didn't fit

    My shape: Pendulous, projected, slightly FOT, slightly center-full, tallish roots, semi-soft tissue.

    My quick take on this bra: extremely open at the top and a bit shallow. Gaps everywhere. I don't think sizing down in the cup is the answer as it's too shallow at the wire in this size. Just doesn't work for my shape.

    It's weird, because the Adell I bought in the same size fits great. The lower cups in both have the same construction, but in the Adell the seams get noticeably closer together where they meet the top part of the cup and in this they get only ... slightly closer together. If the bottom of this cup was cut like the Adell and the top part made proportionally smaller it would have fit much better.

    Another weird thing that points to some lack of quality control is that the right strap was double-twisted before it was sewn on. I feel it should never have left the factory with this kind of defect.

    Otherwise, the foam is thin and light and the outside is covered with soft satin knit. Band is tts and comfortable. It's a nice bra if it fits, especially for the low price.

    As a side note on Impimi sizing, I ordered 3 bras in 75H. The Adell semi-soft fits great, the Kler unpadded is a cup size small, and this one is obviously too large. It seems like they want to increase their international sales. If so, they need to standardize sizing across the different models.

    This review is for the Brown colorway. Please see my review of the beige Impimi Nicol for the deeper dive. However! the brown has slightly smaller cups. Its smaller enough that my larger girl quads toward the middle and the overall profile is minimized/flattened compared to both the beige and the white Nicol. Maybe half a cup to a full cup difference? Maybe just due to the tendancy that darker bras are smaller, which I forgot when ordering. The label says 32F and while the lighter ones are cut large and fit my 32FF perfectly, the brown may actually be more TTS! It is a deep, dark chocolate brown; think bittersweet chocolate, almost black.

    Used to be perfect cup at 116 pounds, but band is definitely still too stretchy and always has been. Underwires good shape, but HARD. OW!! Open on top. Overall a shallow rounded shape, not a lot of forward projection, more a wide set shape from the front. Wires too wide as well now (don't know how my roots got so narrow in the last year.) This was my favorite at one time, and I wore under everything, but now the cups have stretched a bit so all the seams show under shirts. Boobs are too big now too.
    Really sad Impimi closed, I was hoping to see where they went in the future and how they developed their products. Wires feel punched, and wings are spandex not power mesh. Overall quality was good though, and extensive size range. Good color for my skin tone too, although slightly too yellow.

    See my review for the beige colorway - the white one is identical (except its white) (for now anyway, I am going to either paint it or dye it :-))
