      "Breast warmer"--100% I understand. :-D

      This color is stunning on your skin--an amazing contrast. Gorgeous.

      lcl0706 Thanks! I don't like red in general but I love burgundy. And I agree it's beatufiul :)

      Love4Pollinators I read once a conversation of a few women who thought it's very funny that some people don't like wearing light bras in the winter, as your breasts can't feel the cold. Well, I was quite surprised that someone can not see the difference. I wear only padded bras and thick socks when it's cold outside :D

      Wilderness1 Thank you!

      finallygotboobs Thanks! I had a rough time this autumn, and the blog was almost completely dead, but everything's fine now, so I think there will be some new posts this year :) I got lots of new duties with which I am very happy, so new reviews won't be very frequent, but I hope I manage to try a few bras and review them :) It's really nice the blogs can be useful to someone.

      LeProfessor You are right, if this is important factor to you, then this bra won't be very practical. I don't mind seams, embroidery and the stuff showing through, so I'm happy I have a beautiful bra. By the way, they have moulded version of this bra, but it's not as pretty as this one, in my opinion.

      learningaboutbras I heard about them a few years ago, but I believe they were known for cheap and low quality bras back then. Now the prices are significantly higher, but the quality is much better too (I mean everything: materials, design, durability and sewing).

      Ass cleavage...made me giggle but unless you have full on top and close set boobs and probably a slightly tight fit on the cup it will be near impossible.

    • And the bra looks great on you! I have wondered about this brand so good to see your review.

    • 2

      That kind of cleavage is probably achieved with firm breasts that are taped together under the bra.

    • 3

      Agreed cupandahalf and I think the key here is obviously non-tacking gores so the breasts can just smush together and create butt cleavage. Basically the model is put in a cup that cannot accommodate her center fullness. If you want a bra that fits comfortably and tacks... no butt crack for you!

      Very interesting! I was amused by your boyfriend's reaction. :D I would've appreciated a shot of the removable pads next to something to give us an idea of scale. Just how big are they?

      MiskiDwie , comparing them to Ewa Michalak cookies is a great idea. Thanks, I'll check the review again later for pics.

    • Awesome! Looks so beautiful on you! Thanks for the note about sweat: I understand :-)

    • That's gorgeous! remind me again how one shows love for the blog?

      learningaboutbras I promise to upload a pic of the cookies as soon as possible to Bratabase :)
      Elodie sharing is caring :) just share to post in your social media or comment on it :) thanks!

    • How wide set are the straps in this brand? The only polish I've tried besides Comexim were Ewa and Gorsenia, and the straps are crazy wide set.

    65H

    Fits

    This bra was my last stop on my bra tour of Poland. There was very little data here on Konrad and I couldn't even find very many reviews online.

    The brand came on my radar when I saw a super pretty heavily multi-coloured embroidered aqua bra (that they released this spring) on a blog covering the Spring Polish Salon Bielizny.

    When I went to their website to find that bra, this bra instead captivated my attention immediately - it is SO original. I have never seen anything quite like it in terms of the colour combination.

    I hemmed and hawed about buying it for months and only pulled the trigger ... when I found it on EBay from a seller than I have used before and who I knew accepted returns and exchanges without argument.

    I first ordered the bra in my then usual Polish size - 65G. I am actually between sizes 65G and 65H...leaning more to H these days...and when it arrived in 65G, it was clearly too small. I contacted the seller and he agreed to send me the 65H right away.

    NB - "Right Away" when ordering from Poland and having things shipped Polish Post is a minimum month wait.

    Anyhow...here it is. It arrived. And, it is beautiful and it fits. It's not my optimal fit due to wire width, but it fits.

    This bra is technically a balcony - but the top panel is cut more straight across and cup height is a little lower, so it looks like a hybrid between a balcony and soft balconette/half cup/demi. It's different.

    Combine this cut with shoulder straps that are a little wide set and you get a bra that's terrific under low wide necklines (like a sweetheart or a boatneck).

    OK - back to the structure.

    It is a 4-part softcup bra - 3 vertical panels in the bottom part of the cup and one horizontal in the top part.

    The outermost panel connects to the strap and although there is no side sling, this structure gives somewhat of a side support. Ewa Michalek uses a similar construction and so does Krisline in some of their soft bras.

    The negative thing about this construction is that it often results in straps that are wide set. So...if you tend to have problems with that, this bra is most likely not for you. The straps on this bra are wide set much like Ewa's SF.

    The lower part of the cup is made from a sheer printed mesh. It is lined with opaque burgundy mesh.

    The top part of the cup is sheer mesh with a feminine irregularly scalloped edge and colourful embroidery with metallic copper accents. The copper thread embroidery extends down onto the bottom of the cup also. It is stunningly beautiful - it almost twinkles.

    This top section has a narrow elastic strip at the top of the cup. Good to note if you have tall soft roots and tend to experience cutting in/quad boob. It's left loose though - it doesn't shir the cup at all when the bra isn't on.

    The wires are pretty narrow for this size - a 14cm wide wire at 65H isn't too bad. Only about 1/2-1 cm wider than my preference, so while it doesn't push me as front and center as I like, it's not annoying or even unflattering.

    Cups are pretty projected at the wire. I get VERY minor wrinkling. VERY minor. In fact, I only noticed it when I took angle photos.

    And: Gore TACKS. SOLID. AWESUMMMMMMMM

    Wings are pretty low.

    Straps on this bra are heaven. They're fully adjustable and padded on the front 1/3. Smooth edges too. It's a nice change from picot trim. Adjusters are colour-matched. Sweet.

    The charm at the gore is a cute heart with a crystal. It's nice but feels a little "light". And...the bows on this bra look cheap. Compared to the rest of the bra, the ribbon looks cheap. Head scratching as to why corners would be cut here on an otherwise pretty mid to high-end bra...

    The band is firm burgundy knitwear. It fabulous. TTS.

    I ordered the thong but it wasn't available so the seller sent me "figs". I was expecting regular briefs, as this is what I had recalled seeing in photos online, however, when they arrived they are full, high-waisted briefs. They are full coverage on the back (translate: my man HATES them) but they are CRAZY comfortable, the embroidery is gorgeous and there's lots of it on them.

    This is a lovely set of nice quality and if something in their line caught my attention, I would buy from Konrad again. I uploaded TONS of photos -more than can be seen just from the Adventure preview.

    • Hi, I am heading to Poland shortly but travelling with small kids so limited in where we go. Could you recommend any shops worth visiting in Warszawa and Krakow?

    65G

    Fits

    This is the second Desire Me I received to review, and this one fits - altough when I fished it out of the box I was sure it is going to be too small. It accentuates my assymetry unfortunately, so this might put off some of you, but I don't mind. I would say this is another proof that Polish bras can emulate the Marie Antoinette cleavage better than British - this one, along with 65G - Vena » (238) is the 'better Tease Me'.

    Didn't fit

    I was sure this is the Desire Me that was going to fit me - but this one is a bit too wide in the cup and the depth is a little bit too big. This one has special pockets for cookies, which bewilders me a bit, since 65G and 65F - smaller sizes) have none. I really have no idea what the idea behind it was.

    This is the smallest of the Desire Me bras I received for review. This is the size I should fit into according to the Konrad size table, and it is a tad too small - I quad but it is still comfortable. Holy wide cups batman! The cups are veeeery wide in this model and I think this is what prevents me from spilling all over the cups.

    Another of my explorations into Polish-made bras, and such a heart-breaker when it did not fit. This brassiere is curl-your-toes gorgeous! (And it is definitely a brassiere, all grown up and full of feminine confidence). The true color doesn't show in the pictures - in person it is a rich deep salmon-rose satin glowing from underneath a dusty rose stretchy lace overlay. The 3-part cups are tippled with an ornate pale rose braid (I think it is called gimp which is a horrid name); a little teaser dances at the narrow gore and more roses surround the slightly curved bottom of the band. The seams don't show through ... the lacy layer, although it has it's own 3 gores from the bottom, which makes it look like a half-cup style. The cups are lightly padded and softly lined with rose cotton knit; Inam stands up on her own quite nicely and the top section is not stiff or curved inward, so this bra would work well for a FOT shape. The band is firm but stretchy and luxuriously soft, with an inner powerknit and an outer layer of the same divine rose lace. There is cushioned side-boning and of course a leotard back for controlling errant flesh.The wings are not too high that they rub, and the wires are medium width, but also do not come up very high on the outside.The stretch-satin detachable straps (!) make Inam a versatile lady, and the trim runs up the front for a few inches. Fortunately, the straps are plenty long. The workmanship is excellent, not a loose thread or unfinished edge. I think Konrad has a reputation for quality and design. Anyway, now the sad part https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> This brassiere is not made for me. I am narrow, close set, projected, even, and dammit this is my size! There is sufficient projection and a nice narrow gore; the band is perfect with enough give to not bind; it should work!!! But the cups are just too big up top. I swim in them, they gap hugely, my boobs are lost. Idk. Maybe for someone more FOT? Enhanced? Wide rooted so the boning and the wires bring a breast into Inam's graces? Heartbroken. Sobs quietly.....

    My Ewa CHP sizes are 65E, but this 60F is about1 or 2 cups too big. The edge of foam wasn't sewn, I should say quality is not good.

    65H

    Didn't fit

    This bra was a big oops. I am at the beginning of my journey to find A Bra That Fits, so I suppose some major mistakes are due. After getting this bra, I've figured out that I should be wearing a 30F or so (unlined Freya is best). This bra is massive on me. It's too tall for my short boobs, and there's a lot of gaping. To its credit, it is comfortable. If I had larger boobs, this would probably be a gorgeous nude plunge. As is, it does not fit. I have major gaping everywhere - except at the gore, where I have center heaviness and great cleavage.. If I swoop and scoop, take a deep breath and pin my shoulders back, it fits perfectly.
    Straps are convertible. Honestly, the bra fits a lot better with the straps crossed (why?), but still too big (only slightly instead of gaping though, so maybe I can make it work).

    I knew this bra will be ill-fitted, but I didn't think it would be as bad. It gives me a horrible quadboob, itches in the back, flower decorations are really bad quality, and the fabric smells. Don't buy it.
